Microplane is the premier brand worldwide for exceptionally sharp culinary tools. The long and narrow, rasp-style tool, featuring hundreds of tiny stainless steel razors was first created to shape or file wood! Famous for our graters and zesters, the brand has revolutionized the way chefs and home cooks grate and zest a wide range of ingredients for flavorful, gourmet style cooking and baking.
Note that all Microplane metal blades are made in USA.
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, and long-lasting, ultra-sharp stainless steel blades, giving you the consumer, a more precise result with far less effort.
