The Microplane Zester & Grater has become a standard in today's kitchens. It's a must-have for chefs of all levels, from novice to professional. The Microplane is so versatile, you'll wonder how you cooked without it! It's great for grating Parmesan and other hard cheeses, finely zesting your favorite citrus for baking and cooking, and grating chocolate for desserts and specialty drinks.The Premium Microplane still has the classic Microplane shape and style, but with a couple of updates. The handle is now a soft-touch handle for comfort while using. The end of the surgical grade stainless steel blade features non-scratch end tabs, so if you use your pots, dishes, or cutting boards as a support, you won't leave scratches or dents in their surfaces. The Premium Microplane also comes with a blade cover for safe storage. THe microplane measures 12" x 1 5/16" x 1" wide.
