Out of the Toolshed and Into the Kitchen

Twelve years ago Lorraine Lee of Ottawa, Canada changed the world of grating forever. Tired of dealing with her old grater, she picked up her husband’s fancy new woodworking tool and voila! history was made.

And thank you Lorraine! The microplane grater is by far my favorite kitchen gadget. With its super fine teeth, it upgrades grating from a chore to a fun task and cuts through tough blocks of Parmesan cheese like a hot knife through butter. If you’ve ever wondered why grating has to be so frustrating, then look no further.

Now at the risk of being pummeled by your old box graters, I have to say, get your own Microplane Grater ($12.95) and you’ll be “grate”ful - sorry! I couldn't resist!
