What is a microplane and how do you use one?
Everyone loves fresh garlic. But when was the last time you enjoyed the tedium of peeling and mincing a tiny, sticky clove of fresh garlic?
How about skipped the garlic in a recipe altogether or went with a dash of garlic powder instead?
What if I told you that taking down the real stuff doesn’t have to be a chore?
Enter the Microplane: A game-changing and under-appreciated kitchen tool. This one wand of a gadget can finely mince garlic and fresh ginger, zest colorful citrus, and powder whole spices.
A Microplane is an inexpensive, easy-to-find tool that’s in every professional chef’s knife bag, but sadly missing from most home kitchens.
I say it’s time to right that wrong. Here’s why every kitchen, including your own, needs a Microplane ASAP.
