Microplane® expands its collection of premium quality, innovative kitchen tools with the introduction of the 2-in-1 Spice Mill
The Spice Mill not only precisely grates and grinds hard spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon, it also stores them in a small airtight compartment.
If you enjoy cooking there is nothing quite like using freshly ground whole spices. Nutmeg has a warm, spicy aroma and flavour perfect for both sweet and savoury dishes such as a classic béchamel sauce or any number of cakes and puddings. Cinnamon enhances everything from baked apples and soups to tagines, pork chops and even hot chocolate!
Made in the USA, Microplane® is the first company to apply photo-etching technology to graters, a process specially designed to create ultra-sharp cutting edges which revolutionised the market. Using the same pioneering technology, the Spice Mill features iconic razor-sharp stainless-steel blades, or teeth, ensuring ingredients are effortlessly and precisely cut without ripping or tearing.
The blade is safely positioned at the base of the manual mill. It’s easy to use; simply remove the top, place hard spices in the base, replace the top, push down and twist clockwise with one hand while holding the base with the other. The evenly grated texture of the spice is based on the amount of pressure used when twisting the top.
Peter Morrell Editor commented “Cinnamon and nutmeg are two of my favourite spices, they give a unique flavour profile to a whole range of dishes. Pre-ground spices soon go stale but with this Spice Mill you can deliver precise amounts of fresh aromatic tastes to your cooking and conveniently whole spices can be stored in the airtight lid”
Two versions are available, one in classic black and the other with a stylish stainless-steel cap. Both have a satin-touch body for a comfortable and secure grip. While the Spice Mill is dishwasher safe (on the top rack), it is recommended to wash the blades by hand.
Coveted by professional chefs and home cooks, the Microplane® Spice Mill is priced at RRP £24.95 and includes a handy silicon cover to avoid mess when not in use.
Available from Harts of Stur (hartsofstur.com) and independent cookshops nationwide.
