Peter Morrell Editor comments “I have a number of Microplane utensils in my kitchen, and they are all highly efficient for the tasks I need them for, slicing, grating, zesting, and grinding. They are the Rolls Royce of the utensil world.
“I recently tried the new Bowl Grater and found it highly efficient. The non-slip ends fit neatly over the rim of a bowl so grated food is caught with no mess or wastage. I’ve grated a wide range of ingredients, onions, beetroot, carrots, white cabbage, cauliflower, and hard cheese.
“The ultra-sharp coarse blades make short working of any preparation task. You could call it a utensil essential.”
The Microplane products are available from all good cookware shops and Amazon
