More Product Features
Zester - Fine blade panel is removeable.
The Fine blade, used for zesting or for grating hard cheeses, can be removed to allow for grating or zesting directly over a bowl or a dish at the table. This feature also provides easy access to the center of the tool for cleaning.
Why Sharper is Better!
Microplane signature photo-etched process on surgical grade stainless steel is meant to cut and shred foods without bruising or tearing the food. Pulling cheese across the blade requires very light pressure to achieve beautiful results.
We always recommend using a cut resistant glove to protect your hands from accidental contact with the blades.
Ribbon blades are bi-directional.
Pulling food up or down across the bi-directional Ribbon blade teeth produces beautiful results.
Making breads or salads? This tool is efficient at grating zucchini, apples, chocolate and coconut, or shaving carrots, cabbage and semi hard cheese.

Things I like-
The blades are very sharp, it seems to cut through just about any cheese with ease, to the point that unfortunately my dad has lost his fingertips more than once.
The fine grate side is removable for either easy cleaning, or holding just that side over a plate of pasta.
Things I dislike-
The grater isn't the most stable I have used. Since it is quite tall and narrow and with rounded feet it can rock if you don't hold it firmly.
My dad discovered that if you use too much force (apparently it wasn't grating quite as fast as he wanted) the plastic around the blades can crack. So far the cracks are quite small, and don't seem to have compromised the grater at all, but this could likely limit the life of the grater much more than anything else about it.
I have dropped this review by two stars because of how the greater has held up with time. My dad has had this for two years now, and it has not held up well. The small cracks I talked about before have become both more numerous and larger. There are places where the plastic has broken off entirely. To their credit, it still seems to be sturdy enough even with bits missing, but this damage is likely to get worse and it will soon be unusable. The blades are still very sharp, so it is disappointing that an otherwise great product is held back so much by cheaper construction. If they made this in a solid metal version I have no doubt it would last decades, but this one will be lucky to make it to 5 years.
Because the thing is, it's excellent at grating. I have an OXO box grater too, and there's just no comparison -- it's much easier and faster to use this one, with less force required from me, because it's so much sharper. Given my choice of graters, I'd use this one every time.
BUT, it's flimsy as heck. It flexes while you use it and develops cracks quickly. The top handles start falling out, the plastic casing around the grating sheets cracks -- pretty much everywhere there's any stress on it, it dies, and quickly.
So if you look at it as a disposable grater, something to use up and replace within six months or so, it's an absolutely excellent 5-star piece. But if you don't think you should have to buy a new grater every six months -- and, honestly, put me in that category -- then it's sort of inexcusable.
