The latest edition of the classic rasp grater from Microplane boasts several improvements upon the original design. The protective cover flips around and attaches onto the back of the tool, where it catches and measures whatever you've grated, from carrots and Parmesan cheese to citrus zest and chocolate. The cover is also equipped with a handy blade wiper that removes zest still clinging to the blades, so no nothing is wasted.

  • Razor-sharp etched stainless-steel teeth.
  • Comfortable soft-grip handle with hanging loop.
  • Transparent plastic cover serves as a catch/measuring container for grated zest.
  • Includes measurement marks in U.S. and metric amounts (10-tsp. cap.).
  • Includes a wiper to remove zest easily from back of blade.
  • Can also be used to grate hard cheese, garlic, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Nonslip base for added stability.

  • Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be great We bought this because of the measuring capabilities on the plastic cover that allows you to measure what you are zesting. Unfortunately as others have stated the metal started bending with very little pressure. We have two other Microplane testers and have never had this issue.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Amazing but needs improvement This is a must-have tool! I'm only giving it 3 stars because -like another reviewer wrote- the quality of this specific model is terrible. After months of use and good care I was forced to throw it out. The plastic broke and the metal was bending. This was quite a disappointment! I would recommend buying a different model.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use This was the second one I have purchased. The first was for myself and the other was for my daughter in law for Christmas. This is the best! Especially useful is the cover that collects the grated material so it is easier to put into recipes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! If you're on the fence--purchase! This tool works as advertised. Love the addition of the plastic "catcher."

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Microplane quality I have used this grater for almost 9 months and have always hand washed it and taken great care of it. The plastic edge cracks... Very dissappointing for a microplane product. I will buy the classic one without the plastic and fancy container

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from How you ever did without this produce I just had to get this one because I use my other one everyday and it's always in the dishwasher.You can use it for all kinds citrus zesting, a little bit of carrot or other root vegetable in your salad and all kinds of cheese, just keep the cheese very cold before grating. You will wonder how you ever did without this produce. The grating gloves are great too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality! Love this grater. Its excellent for thin shavings of cheese, such as parm. This is my second elite grater purchase and I am very happy with them both.
