The Microplane Gourmet Series: Stainless Steel Kitchen Products for Better, Safer Grating
Grating in the kitchen can be a messy and hazardous process, which makes me avoid this cooking activity and go for pre-grated ingredients. However, freshly grated cheeses, veggies, and dessert toppings like chocolate and coconut always taste more vividly crisp and delicious. Luckily, the Microplane Gourmet Series offers a host of grating products designed for user safety and more efficient grating. The easy-to-use graters have stainless steel fronts attached to a comfortable no-slip grip handle to safely keep hands away from the small blades. These graters come with a reusable safety cover and are dishwasher safe.
The Gourmet Series offers a large shaver and the graters come in fine, course, extra course, and a ribbon grater that makes fun curly cue shapes kids will enjoy. These graters work well for grating hard and soft cheese, cucumber, zucchini, onion, carrots, ginger, chocolate, coconut, potatoes, and cabbage. The packaging of each grater shows which ingredients work best with that grater type. The grater attachment works to further protect hands while grating smaller ingredients like spices, citrus zest, chilies, almonds, and garlic.
The Microplane Gourmet Series can be found online at microplane.com and orders of $25 or more ship for free.
