Here’s To A Grate Christmas!

Fabulous New Microplane® Gift Sets

Here are some grate gift ideas from Microplane® for food-loving friends and family this Christmas. Made in the USA, the signature Microplane® super sharp, long-lasting, photo-etched stainless steel blades, or teeth, effortlessly deliver superior results without ripping or tearing the ingredients while releasing natural aromas to enhance flavour.

Gourmet pals will be thrilled with this super premium, exquisitely elegant Master Series Gift Set which includes the iconic long and slender Zester and the Extra Coarse Paddle Grater – a ‘steel’ at RRP £59.95 – and the prefect combo for when festive recipes such as Christmas cake (and pudding), cauliflower cheese, Yule logs, and so much more, call for some grating action.

Some like it hot! Marilyn Monroe did and so do we! That’s why we’ve introduced the Gourmet Chili Gift Set which includes a sleek, velvety Chili Mill and a smart 30g storage tin of Spicebar Birds Eye Chilis, RRP £34.95. The Chili Mill effortlessly and evenly grates the chilies to release essential oils which add oomph to a wide range of sweet and savoury dishes.

With a luxurious silk-feel grip for comfort and stability, simply hold the stainless steel ring and turn to open. Place the dried chilis in the cavity and click the top back into place. The Precise Pressure™ Engineered Tension Spring applies optimum pressure to the dried chillies for perfect grating, and there’s a handy silicone cap to avoid mess when the Mill is not in use.

The Gourmet Spice Set includes a stylish stainless steel Spice Mill and a sachet each of whole Spicebar Nutmeg and Tonka Bean, RRP £29.95. The Spice Mill – which comes with a silicone cap to avoid mess when not in use – precisely grates Nutmeg to bring a subtle background lift to creamed spinach and that Cauliflower Cheese we were talking about (above), along with an endless list of soups, puddings (pumpkin pie anyone?) and moreish gratins. And, of course, it fills the kitchen with the most wonderful sweet, woody aromas. Bliss.

The Spice Mill is also perfect for grating Tonka Beans which add a blend of vanilla and almond to dishes such as savoury tarts, fruit pies and milk puddings. Easy to use; simply remove the top, place the hard spices in the base, replace the top, push down and twist the top clockwise with one hand while holding the base with the other. The evenly grated texture of the spice is based on the amount of pressure used when twisting the top.

While all Microplane® mills and graters are dishwasher safe (on the top rack), it is recommended to wash the blades by hand.
