Objects Of Design #21: Microplane Rotary Grater

Part of the Kitchen Essentials Series

So you’ve probably already got a flat rasp or a grater, but this is for those days when you simply must have cheese on toast. And then everyone else wants some too. Or when you’re making cakes or brownies and you need to grind up the chocolate and nuts and can’t be bothered to get the food processor out – particularly if you haven’t heeded my earlier advice and it’s still living in the cupboard where it’s always a faff to get it out. See, I had a point there. This will make short work of all that. My Grandmother used hers for parsley and herbs too as it comes with two drums for fine and coarse grating.
