Microplane®, the pioneer and original manufacturer of photo-etched graters, has launched the NEW BOWL GRATER.
This new kitchen tool easily and efficiently grates vegetables, fruit and hard cheeses directly and neatly into a container or bowl. The grater with its extra coarse blade has been created to sit comfortably across any round bowl (up to 16cm in diameter). It can be placed horizontally across the surface or inside / at an angle in the food bowl, allowing for secure, comfortable and quick grating thanks to its two rounded and non-slip handles on both sides that are perfectly moulded to the contours of the container preventing slippage.
The photo-etched, ultra-sharp, long-lasting stainless-steel blade, made in the USA, effortlessly grates the toughest ingredients from apples, cabbage, cauliflower, courgettes to carrots and potatoes. The food is cut with precision without ripping or tearing, releasing the natural aroma to enhance flavour. This versatile grater is the perfect tool for preparing low carb recipes. Cauliflower, for example, can then be grated roughly to be made into tabbouleh or cauliflower rice, prepared with coconut oil as a tasty alternative. The extra coarse blade creates a larger texture so is ideal for raw vegetable salads and coleslaws as well as dishes such as frittatas and vegetable gratins. It’s also perfect for helping make flaky pastry, just remember to chill the butter before grating!
Whilst dishwasher safe, the Bowl Grater can be cleaned quickly by simply rinsing under the tap.
The NEW Microplane® Bowl Grater, RRP £19.95, is available from John Lewis.
