Made in the USA, cooking aficionados worldwide are familair with the Microplane origin story and we are pleased to bring you the worldwide premier brand for these super sharp kitchen tools. In 1994 a canadian house wife was making an orange cake when - out of frustration that her grater was tearing and shredding - she commandeered one of her husband’s favourite woodworking tools. The blade slid effortlessly across the orange and the zest fell from its surface like snowflakes. The discovery laid the foundation for the creation of Microplane kitchen graters and an entire line of revolutionary graters was born.
