Product Details

Microplane is a household name across the world for their exceptional blades, which grate ingredients without bruising and tearing them. This compact box grater is fitted with five cutting surfaces from the most popular Microplane tools: the fine, coarse, and extra coarse graters; the medium ribbon slicer; and the large shaver. The integrated soft-grip top handle and no-slip rubber base help maximise stability and easy of use. It’s also fitted with a window that allows you to inspect your ingredients as they pass through the blades. The window is marked with quantities in millilitres, so you can even measure your food as you go. A handy collection tray set into the base prevents mess. It is dishwasher safe, but repeated exposure to dishwasher chemicals may dull the blades and shorten the lifespan of the product.

‘It does everything—and quickly!’
About The Brand


The first Microplane was conceived in 1990 by brothers Richard and Jeff Grace in Arkansas, USA, and was originally intended for use in woodworking. However, as the legend goes, a home cook once decided on a whim to try it out on an orange, and was astonished by the perfectly-shaped shards of zest it could produce. This ultimately led to the development of the Microplane brand as we know it today—a household name and the industry standard for graters, shavers, and zesters.

What sets Microplane products apart from others is their exceptional, long-lasting sharpness: the blades are made by means of a patented photochemical etching process that shapes them far more precisely than traditional mechanical means. The razor-sharp blades finely slice ingredients, rather than crushing or tearing them like the duller metal-stamped blades on standard graters; this makes grating or zesting much less laborious, and improves the taste, texture, and appearance of whatever you’re grating.
