Peter Morrell puts this highly versatile precision kitchen tool through its paces
The perfect kitchen tool for all gourmets – a slicer & grater in one.
Whether risotto, pasta, mashed potatoes, scrambled eggs, fish or meat, whatever dish you choose, in most recipes the truffle must either be sliced very thin or finely grated. With the new, thoughtfully designed Truffle Tool from the Master Series, you have a choice, as it is specially designed to allow for both slicing and grating.
With the straight, razor-sharp blade, the truffle can be easily and quickly sliced to the desired thickness. By simply turning the knob, the thickness of the slices can be infinitely adjusted, from paper-thin to the desired cut thickness.
The slices are not only a visual highlight on dishes, but also give them an intense and distinctive flavour.
But other foods, such as radishes, mushrooms or strawberries can also be sliced very thin with the slicing blade.
If you prefer to finely grate the precious truffle instead, simply turn the tool around. With the photo-etched stainless-steel blade, the truffle can be precisely cut without much effort and without ripping or tearing. This allows the aroma to develop optimally, and the flavour is enhanced.
The grating surface is also ideal for finely grating chocolate, ginger, nutmeg, or Parmesan.
This smart kitchen tool is perfect for all gourmands and guarantees maximum enjoyment through optimal processing of the food!

Peter Morrell, Editor comments “This is a superb product, I didn’t have a truffle to hand, but the slicer made short work of producing wafer thin cucumber and radish slices which I pickled with salt, sugar and white wine vinegar. I also used it to season a ‘Spag Bol’ with Parmesan cheese, and to grate nutmeg into a Béchamel sauce to top a moussaka. In all a high quality, versatile kitchen tool”
