Had my Willie-Sonoma fix today and bought a mircoplane grater. Works wonderfully.

I finally got mine from Bridge. Cuts like a chain saw.

This was Bridges yearly 1/3 off sale. 16.95 less 1/3.

A good price. Husband says it is good for shaving, for those of you who like a close one!!!

Seriously, grating lemon zest was a pleasure.

Lee Valley Tools (613/596-0350, www.leevalley.com), which first introduced the Microplane as a kitchen tool, sells the 8-inch grater with handle for $10.75 and the original 12-inch grater without handle for $8.95.

Try it for Parmesan and chocolate -- you won't go back to your old method, WHATEVER it was.

I love the thing! I used it for parmesan and zest this past week and it treated parm like butter. It was amazing! I wonder how long it will stay so sharp?

I agree, haven't tried chocolate, but works great for cheese, nutmeg and zesting.
