Microplane Tools September 3, 2010 by keith snow Leave a Comment I have many Microplane tools, they are awesome. Graters and zesters are very handy to have around the kitchen. I use mine to grate cheese, chocolate, citrus zest, dry bread, hard cheeses. The thing about Microplane tools is that they are very sharp, easy to hold and well-made. You ucan find other graters, but they usually break with any serious use.
