Microplane Makers Richard and Jeff Grace had woodworkers in mind when they invented a microplane rasp back in 1990. When a frustrated and smart-thinking home baker ditched her dull citrus zester and reached into the toolbox for their tool instead, a eureka moment was born.
The idea that, when it comes to woodworking tools, “sharper is better”, turns out to also apply in the kitchen. So all of Microplane’s graters, zesters, and prep gear have super sharp stainless steel blades that are Made in the USA. Whatever kitchen job you’re tackling—from peeling potatoes and grating parmesan to ricing cauliflower and even cutting perfect curls of butter—there’s a sturdy tool at the ready to help. Now run by Richard's son Chris, the team is hard at work developing products with a focus on efficiency and ease of use so you can get to tasty results in a better way.
