Microplane Professional Extra Coarse Grater
This professional extra coarse grater is perfect for grating cheddar and other semi-hard cheeses and vegetables. Extra coarse Cheese Graters yield large, flavorful shreds of grated foods. Similar to a julienne knife cut, but a thicker and wider curl of food. When you're looking to maintain the taste and texture of an ingredient, an extra coarse blade is your go-to kitchen tool.
The generous 2-1/2-by-5-inch cutting surface of Microplane's durable extra course grater provides ample room for rapidly generating grated foods. Appropriate for soft or hard cheeses, create Mozzarella-covered pizza or Parmesan garnish from a single tool. Keeping fingers at a safe distance, hold shaver at an angle and run food in a downward motion over the grating plane. 35 razor-sharp blades, staggered on the arched cutting surface, cut effortlessly and resist clogging for continuous grating. A band of rubber encircling the bottom edge prevents slipping and provides stability. The stainless-steel handle features rounded edges for a comfortable hold, and finishes with a small metal loop to simplify storage. Dishwasher-safe. To protect against dulling, cover cutting surface with accompanying plastic blade guard when not in use. 18/8 stainless steel handle and frame.
