Care & Usage Show
Sometimes I use it to top soups with shaved almond or hard cheese
It does a finer grate than the standard Microplane. And it is absolutely brilliant for when you quickly need some finely grated spice. It only takes ~a minute to get a teaspoon of grated nutmeg.
I regularly use it on nutmeg -- but I also use it for dried white ginger when I need powdered ginger for a recipe. I was also surprised about how effective it is on using almost the whole nutmeg. I will say that one of my friends was bemused when she opened my whole nutmegs' spice container and found a nutmeg that looked like someone had taken a bite out of it.
It's one of the items that I keep hanging from the pot rack above my stove so it's readily available. Easy to add a bit of nutmeg to a cream soup or curry
