When you need to use a kitchen tool for food prep, you picked the right tool with an Elite Series.  It measures and catches the ingredients as you grate.  From nuts to garlic, to citrus and cheese, this grater does it all.

The Microplane Elite Series includes a transparent cover that doubles as a grating catch feature and measuring cup with a generous 1-cup capacity. Use the stainless steel Microplane® fine blade to create flavorful citrus zest without any of bitter white pith just under the fruit’s peel. It's stellar at grating aromatics, such as shallots, onions, garlic and ginger into a fine paste that melts and blends instantly with other ingredients in a pan, as well as transforming Parmesan and other hard cheese into powdery mounds for garnishing pasta and other savory dishes.

A fine grater offers a precise blade that creates a superfine grate. When used with harder ingredients, a fine grater produces powder-like results that pack an intense flavor. With moister foods, you will see a puree-like texture from your ingredients.

Use a Fine Grater for:

Recipes that need an intense flavor. Spices, citrus fruits, hard cheeses (Asiago, Parmesan, Romano, Manchego), ginger, garlic, cloves, chili, chocolate and nuts

FAQs

Is there an attachment for this grater?

The Elite Series curved shape makes using a food guard difficult, instead we recommend the Microplane cut resistant glove

How do you Zest?

If you are right-handed, hold the lemon (citrus) in your left hand with a side up as if it were the neck of a violin. Take the Microplane® Zester in your right hand and make sure the sharp edges of the cutter are aimed away from you toward the lemon. Make sure to lightly grip the smooth edges of the tool (thumb on one side, four fingers on the other). Now, stroke the Zester across the lemon as if you were playing the violin. The zest collects in the upper channel. Voila! Incredible fine shavings of zest--no more grated knuckles! For use with cheese, we suggest stretching it across the top of a bowl.

 

Use and Care
  • Top-rack dishwasher safe. Handwash the cover.
  • We recommend rinsing your grater in warm water immediately after each use. Remove trapped particles from the non-sharp backside whenever possible. To remove trapped particles on the front
