The fine steel and masterful grating ability of the Elite Fine Grater is a testament to the engineering prowess and user-friendly design that the folks at Microplane bring to each of their products. The Microplane Elite Fine Grater is perfect for tackling the grating of flavorful citrus zest, its teeth being shallow enough to avoid the bitter pith under the skin, or as an ideal way to grate aromatics, like ginger, garlic, or shallots. It even serves as an optimum choice for powdering hard cheeses, like parmesan. The photochemical processing that each blade goes through is a trademark of Microplane’s renowned forging process and results in a razor-edged cutting surface that glides through ingredients without tearing or chunking them.
In order to grant users the utmost control during the preparation of their favorite garnish or cuisine, Microplane has outfitted the Elite Fine Grater with an ergonomic handle. The handle has been textured with a special soft-grip material and bolstered with a durable polymer base, the result being a tool that remains comfortable and easy to wield. Unique to the Microplane Elite Series is the included plastic cover that doubles as a grating catcher. This comprehensive cover has been marked with measuring notations and features a generous 1-cup capacity.
The Microplane Elite Fine Grater is available in two color variations: Black or Red.
