A Microplane grater is a kitchen essential and the company’s latest product—the Twist N Grate—is one of my new favorite must-haves.
Making Great Graters
Microplane is a US company known for making the best graters and other kitchen gadgets you can buy. The Twist N Grate is unique in that it’s a dual-sided grater that’s designed to easily come apart when not in use for compact storage in a drawer or cabinet. Featuring a tapered conical shape, the Twist N Grate – Dual Sided Grater provides two Microplane blades, Fine and Extra Coarse. Microplane’s signature grating blades, which are crafted in the U.S., are engineered to quickly and efficiently grate a wide range of foods, from hard cheese like Parmesan, to softer cheeses like cheddar and mozzarella, as well as assorted vegetables and fruits, including onions, potatoes, zucchini, apples, pears and much more.
Get the Best Zest
I love the Fine blade because it can be used to zest the peel of citrus, such as lemons, oranges and limes. As with all other Microplane graters, the new Twist N Grate – Dual Sided Grater offers cooks an extraordinarily sharp cutting tool for professional results, and the ultimate in ease and convenience.
It’s dishwasher safe and offers a comfortable soft-touch handle for excellent leverage and a secure grip, even when hands are wet. It’s available in white and red at retail nationwide for $19.99 suggested retail.
