Microplane create premium kitchen tools and have become leaders in their field. Microplane began in the 1990’s, first being used in the woodshop and later becoming a staple in the kitchen. A tool that was once used to file wood has now become one of the best grating tools available. They are internationally renowned these days, especially for their graters and zesters. However, they have a lot more than just that. They also make a wide range of other kitchen gadgets, including ginger tools, herb strippers, spiralizers and much more. The graters are recognised for being extremely sharp, which is thanks to the photo-etching process that defines and sharpens the edge of each tooth on the grater. This makes the sharp blades stronger and much longer lasting. When handling these tools, it is important to be very careful. Microplane has actually created cut-resistant gloves for safety purposes that are ideal to wear when grating, zesting or slicing. These sharp photo-etched stainless steel grating blades made in the USA are a number one choice amongst top chefs and amateur chefs everywhere for a few reasons. Their graters do not rip, tear or shred the food, which helps to keep the foods flavour and scent in check – if not intensified. This sharpness makes the grating process easy and void of struggle too. You don’t need to put in much manual effort, as this blade won’t cause food to stick to it and it won’t get blocked. With a wide variety of different blade types, you can achieve the exact result that you are after.

Where is Microplane made?
In 2007, the company had to move part of the manufacturing process to a factory in Mexico. However, the Microplane chemically etched blades are still crafted in the United States – but are put together in Mexico.
How do I clean my Microplane products?
If you have bought something from Microplane and are unsure how to clean it, please see the individual product information for details. Generally, most Microplane products are top rack dishwasher safe, but it pays to double check this. Please note, the lids and covers typically are not dishwasher safe so will need to be removed and handwashed with warm water using a dish scrubber.
Which Microplane Grater is right for me?
Microplane offer a wide range of different graters, with blades that range from super fine to extra coarse. The grater you need is highly dependent on what you intend to use it for and what outcome you would like. It is said that the texture and scent of the food can change depending on the type of blade you use to grate it. The coarse blade is one of the most popular choices, as it is able to grate a wide range of foods including cheese, fruits and vegetables. Use it for grating hard cheese on your homemade pizza or to top off your pasta dishes. It can also be used to grate nuts that can be used as garnish on cakes or salads. Use it to season your food by grating ginger, onion and garlic. The next blade we are going to cover is the zester blade. The zester blade creates a super fine, angel hair type result. This is great for finely grating chocolate onto your baking or grating hard cheeses over your spaghetti. As the name suggests, you can also use this blade to zest your lemons, limes and other assorted citrus fruits. The last main blade type is the julienne blade, which is designed to create neat strips of your favourite vegetables and fruits. Use it for carrots, courgettes, pears and more! Add these vegetable strips to your salad and add the fruit strips to your muesli or porridge.
