Product Details

Microplane is a household name across the world for their exceptional blades, which grate ingredients without bruising and tearing them. This medium-thickness ribbon grater is fitted with a comfortable soft-grip handle, as well as a no-slip rubber base that lets you stand it up at an angle over a plate or cutting board. It’s perfect for turning cheese or chocolate into delicate shavings that melt on contact with food; it’s also great for shredding hard vegetables for sides or garnishes. The notch in the handle allows you to hang it on a rack. It is dishwasher safe, but repeated exposure to dishwasher chemicals may dull the blades and shorten the lifespan of the product.

Why we love it

‘The fine ribbons this grater produces are perfect for adding texture to cakes and rostis.’
About The Brand

Microplane

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.
