Microplane is probably one of the most well-known brands as far as kitchen tools go. Whether you’re a foodie, a mum who relies on sneaking grated veggies into kids’ pasta dishes, or whether you’ve simply been delegated with grating cheese for pizza night – you want a Microplane.
Invented in 1990, the original Microplane started out as a new type of woodworking tool. But they’ve come a long way. Not even 20 years later most kitchens have a Microplane. Grater, slicer or zester – they now offer a complete range of tools for every type of grating possible. But what’s so special about a Microplane slicer/grater? Microplanes feature tiny razor-like edges formed by photo-etching. In this process, holes are dissolved with a chemical to create uber-sharp cutting edges. This means you finely slice your food rather than tearing or shredding it.
