A Microplane kitchen tool offers a variety of user-friendly features designed with the cook in mind. Ergonomic handles deliver a sturdy grip, allowing you to easily grip the tool in one hand and food in the other. Nonskid rubber bases further stabilize your grip and add a layer of safety to food prep.

A box grater sits sturdily on your countertop, allowing you to grate a variety of foods with ease. For a sleeker option, consider a handheld grater, which combines stainless steel blades with a walnut padded handle for your comfort. This durable style can grate even hard foods, such as Parmesan cheese, chocolate and nutmeg, making it a versatile addition to your kitchen. A zester is a narrower, elongated grater ideal for zesting citrus and grating spices like ginger. Its stainless steel teeth allow you to grate in both directions, which saves time when you're cooking.
