The Story Behind Microplane


Originally engineered for woodworking, the Microplane zester found its way into the kitchen after a clever cook borrowed the tool from her spouse to zest citrus. With a few modifications, the zester soon became a must-have for home cooks and professional chefs alike, who prized for its ability to make light work of kitchen tasks. Each stainless steel Microplane grater is produced using a state-of-the-art etching process to create an ultra-sharp cutting surface that allows its handler to effortlessly grate foods.
