Microplane zesters and graters feature unique razorlike edges that finely slice instead of tearing or shredding. Originally created as a woodworking tool, the first Microplane rasp was invented by brothers Richard and Jeff Grace in Russellville, Arkansas, and has since become a food-prep essential found in kitchens around the world.
I love, love, love this product!!!!! Totally disagree with the previous reviewer. I have used this for very hard cheeses, both the fine grate and the course grate and the product works as advertised and is very easy to change the drum to wash or change from fine grate to coarse grate. Bought a similar product at another competitor and promptly returned that one to purchase this. If you love freshly grated reggiano parmessan, this is the gizmo for you
I owned the first generation Microplane rotary grater and it was FAR better than this one, or any other I've ever tried (and I've tried a lot ~ purchased too many!). This grater is difficult to use if you want to grate very much cheese at all. It seems sturdy, but the lever is too far away from where you put pressure so the cheese slides forward. The only way to make it work well is if you also put your thumb on the lever above where the cheese is - almost impossible to do alone. The old version was a breeze to use and could make quick work of a piece of cheese. We have one that's broken and we STILL prefer it over anything else
