Microplane, the wood working tool that crossed over to the kitchen!

The Microplane Classic Series Zester/Grater

This is one awesome tool. Made by Microplane, this is the Classic Series Zester/Grater. It makes a molehill out of a mountain, so to speak… It takes the toughest job and makes it a snap. Did you know that the smaller garlic is chopped the higher the health benefits? I use my Microplane zester mainly to make a wonderful paste out of garlic and/or ginger. Therefore no big hunks of garlic, just nice and flavorful, AND it only takes a few minutes! I originally bought it years ago to use with Parmesan cheese, but these days it’s all about the ginger and garlic… if you don’t have one, give it a whirl, I’m sure you’ll wonder how you did without it for so long! As they say at Microplane, it’s the woodworking tool that crossed over to the kitchen, and boy am I ever glad someone thought of it!

Catch you back here tomorrow!

    Tell me how you go about using this to chop up small garlic bulbs without slicing up your fingers? I have recent memories of losing parts of my finger to a mandolin, various knives, etc. etc.


    1. Use the larger bulbs of garlic if you have a tendency to slice your finger (eek!) I grab the garlic at one end and use the microplane on the other end, BUT I don’t go all the way to the end… I will push down with my finger (garlic between finger and microplane)… this method may not be for everyone, but it works great for many!


  2. best kitchen tool ever! i have no clue how i ever cooked without mine! I bought one when i graduated from college… a very good friend gave me a gift card to crate and barrel and that was the first thing i put in my basket! i do everything with it from zesting lemons to grating cheese! it’s the best!
