Microplane is the premier brand worldwide for exceptionally sharp culinary tools that have revolutionized the way chefs and home cooks grate and zest a wide range of ingredients for flavorful, gourmet style cooking and baking.
Most graters on the market use a stamped metal process. In this process the teeth are made the same thickness as the rest of the blade. As a result stamped blades are dull. Microplane utilizes a chemical process called photo-etching that defines and sharpens the edge of each tooth on the grater. The result is a much sharper tooth, giving you the consumer, a more precise result with far less effort. Just watch your fingers, use our gloves and food guards for your personal safety.
