Take It From Me: Microplane Review & Giveaway CLOSED

January 17, 2011

Microplane Review & Giveaway CLOSED

Microplane has great tools for around the kitchen. Whether the recipe calls for lemon zest or grated parmesan cheese, you want to be prepared for this coming Valentine's Day! I know that my husband and I will be putting together a delicious meal for the two of us, and we want to make sure that we have the necessary kitchen tools for this special occasion!
I was given the opportunity to review Microplane's easy prep straight peeler and pizza cutter, box grater and their zester/grater. Here is what I liked about these specific products!
The straight peeler has a unique handle that molds easily to my hand. It was a little different at first, but I really enjoyed using it. The shape of the handle relieves the pressure you usually get when peeling a lot of vegetables at once. I also like the bright colors available because it makes it easy to find in my drawer!
Our pizzas can be pretty beastly, so I was very happy with Microplane's 1.5" clearance pizza cutter. The blade is easy to remove, so cleaning is a breeze. The handle is very comfortable and has a non-slip grip, so I am never worried about it slipping out from under me.
I love this box grater! It has 4 sides: ultra course, fine, medium ribbon, and slicer sides. It comes with a cover, which is a genius idea. The cover protects me from accidental nicks, and it protects the grater itself, for long lasting use. I love to conserve every little piece of food when grating, so I was very pleased to find out that the fine blade removes for easy access. For busy moms like me, this grater is easy to clean, just pop the grater in the dishwasher!
I found this Microplane Classic Series Premium Zester/Grater to grate very smoothly. It took no effort at all to grate a block of parmesan cheese. This zester/grater also comes with a cover, protecting both yourself and the blade from damage!
