The Microplane

Best tool ever.

Do you have a Microplane?  If not, go get one.  You’ll thank me later, I promise!

If you have ever struggled to zest a lemon on a box grater, you simply must try the Microplane.  Though it may be nothing more than a glorified carpenter’s rasp with a handle, it has revolutionized the way I zest citrus and grate ginger.  Just imagine–no more picking that precious zest or stringy ginger from a grating board!

But that’s not all!  Not only does the Microplane work magic on your lemons and ginger, it also works beautifully on hard cheeses, chocolate, and whole spices.  Whether you’re seeking a fine grating of Parmigiano for your panko crust, a beautiful garnish of shaved chocolate, or a fragrant dusting of nutmeg on your latte, the Microplane does it with ease.

Even better, there is a Microplane for every job.  Simply mosey on over to the Microplane website and you’ll find the perfect tool for your next kitchen endeavor.  There are even handy attachments for those of us with nervous fingers!  I’ve had my Microplane for something like ten years and consider it an indispensable tool in my kitchen crock.  So before you whip up your next batch of lemon scones, order yourself one of these beauties and enjoy!  Happy cooking!
