A necessary tool

Microplane has unveiled a new “artisan” series of hand-held graters. Whether you are a professional chef or a home cook, you will appreciate the new, ergonomic designs. But how did they improve on a classic? The new line of graters features more color options, new space-saving designs, and are more affordable. The Artisan graters feature the company’s patented stainless steel blades, which are made in the USA. They are specially designed to take up less space in a kitchen drawer and to stack neatly to prevent gadget clutter. There are four styles: fine, medium ribbon, coarse, and extra coarse, perfectly designed to grate anything from chocolate to spices, from cheese to onions. The suggested retail price of each Artisan grater is $9.95. Find out more information by visiting
