Tenderizing meat can be messy business—at one time or another, with mallet in hand, you may have even felt like you were a character straight out of a horror movie. Well good news, Microplane’s new Meat Tenderizer makes this toil a thing of the past with its efficient technology and accessible design.

Microplane’s product uses extraordinarily sharp, etched blades to easily break down and soften the fibers of even the toughest, and often most flavorful cuts of meat—such as flank and skirt steak. This Meat Tenderizer features pyramid-shaped metal spikes which employ the precision of a raised razor-sharp blade, requiring less time and effort than using conventional mallet- and hammer-style meat tenderizers. The Microplane Meat Tenderizer is available at Williams-Sonoma and other retailers nationwide for $20.
