In the words of Tony the Tiger

Its Grrrrrate…

 

Another tool I could not live with out in the kitchen is my Microplane. The Microplane is a soft handled Zester/Grater that originates from woodworking tools.

46020 2011 500

It is not cheap- you can find it for around $30-50 but I tell ya it is so worth it!

This grates even the hardest Parmesan Reggiano as well as other hard cheeses into fine lacy wisps. It’s also wonderful for effortless citrus zesting to add natural flavours to a lime buttercream or a basic vinaigrette, it grates fresh ginger and garlic with ease taking the fuss out of making any asian dish, Chocolate, anything- seriously this thing grates anything.

The blade is made from surgical grade stainless steel and has a comfortable plastic handle.

Dishwasher safe.
Cover included.
Dimensions: 30cm x 3.3cm
