I'm sure most people are already aware of Microplane graters and how good they are. Right? Well, up until recently I only used a fine one, mostly for lemon zest or garlic. For cheese, I used my old box grater instead. But then I got one of the new-style microplanes in coarse, for review. And I'm pleased to report that its rarely in the box, meaning it gets used a lot. Two thumbs up!
