The Microplane Gourmet Series is perfect combination of comfort and function. The Microplane Gourmet series features a non slip rubber foot to make grating even easier, an ergonomic design for comfort and wider grating surface. This Microplane grater is also dishwasher safe and made with stainless steel, providing a durable, efficient, and convenient tool for preparing your culinary delights. Choose from a variety of grating sizes to fit your needs. Why Microplane? It boils down to quality construction. Unlike some lower quality or stamped graters, Microplane uses a proprietary chemical etching process to create a cutting edge that is incredibly sharp and stays that way.
