Definition: Microplane

Microplane at ShopStyle

A kitchen tool used for grating that was first made in the likeness of a woodworking tool in 1994. The blades of the microplane are formed from a unique photo-etching process, which dissolves holes in the metal, leaving sharper edges that slice, rather than tear or shred the substance being rubbed against it.
