The Microplane 2-In-1 Rotary Grater is two cheese graters in one. Grate hard and soft cheese with a single grater drum. Effortlessly squeeze and turn the rotary grater to coarsely grate soft cheese. Simply turn the grater drum around to finely grate hard cheese. With a contemporary, ergonomic design, the Microplane rotary grater features a non-slip grip and thumb rest for added comfort and stability. Microplane graters and zesters feature tiny razor-like edges formed by a process called photo-etching in which holes are dissolved with a chemical. A Microplane grater edge finely slices instead of tearing or shredding. Superb, top-of-the-line Microplane graters are safe and easy to use. Dishwasher safe. 18/8 stainless steel blades made in USA.
