As many know, Microplane originated as a woodworking company and has evolved into a brand of "must have" tools for the kitchen. And now, there’s a new line of hand-held graters from our favorite “grate” company. The new collection, the Master Series is crafted in walnut and stainless steel. The line consists of four paddle-shaped graters and the rasp-style Master Zester with blades configured for fine, ribbon, coarse and extra coarse grating. The four paddle shaped Master Series graters have suggested retail prices of approximately $29.95 each, while the rasp-style Master Zester lists at $26.95. Get ready! The Master Series availability is expected in early fall, 2016.
As always, graters by Microplane have contemporary design, durability and dependable performance. The made-in-the-U.S. blades are sturdy, heavy-duty stainless steel. The oiled wood for the handles is sourced in the U.S., and is comfortable to hold. The graters also feature a wide non-slip bottom for stability when positioning the grater vertically on cutting boards and bowls. We tested the extra coarse grater, and found it extremely useful for grating chocolate for baking, and for shredding vegetables. It made grating beets, potatoes and onions a cinch. Yes a GRATE new tool – especially for small everyday jobs.
