Microplane Elite Paddle Graters Giveaway

Holiday Giveaways from Bake Your Day

Last week I posted my Blendtec giveaway which kicked off four weeks of awesome holiday gift ideas for the cooks and bakers on your list.  Each Tuesday and Thursday for the next few weeks I will be sharing some of my favorite gadgets and kitchen tools, telling you what I love about them, and offering the opportunity for you to win one!

Microplane is a beloved kitchen tool everywhere.  They are easy to use, easy to find, and easy to clean.  I love that combination.

I have a classic spice grater/zester and coarse cheese grater that I use constantly and I’ve heard many cooks say that their #1 go-to kitchen too is their Microplane.  So when they offered to send some Elite Graters, I was ecstatic.

Just take a look at these:


They are stainless-steel, handheld paddle graters and offer different versions: fine, extra coarse, star and ribbon.

These are sharp, powerful tools and here are a few things that I love about them:

  • The graters are stainless steel which is a helpful surface in the kitchen, but also gives them a sleek appearance.
  • Each has a cover which helps protect your skin when digging around in the utencil drawer.  The cover also doubles as a tool to catch whatever it is that you are grating (up to 1 cup) so there is no mess made (yay!)
  • The act of grating is amazingly simple because the teeth are so sharp; they can grate anything from spices to cheddar cheese to Parmesan cheese.
  • They are really easy to clean and store but the best part about cleanup: they are dishwasher safe!

You will love adding these graters to your collection!

    I could use the grater for cheese. Right now, all I have is a box grater for that and it’s not always practical.

    LOVE. I use mine for parmesan mainly. I buy chilli pecorino and it manages to get through the chilli chunks!

    What an awesome giveaway! I could definitely use a grater! I would need this most for Parmesan cheese – I’d love to garnish my foods with freshly grated Parm!

    The girls and I would use the coarse cheese grater, of course!

    Cheese is what I would use it for the most, but I also like to use a fine grater for garlic pods.

    I’d love it specifically for lemons to make lemoncello!

    I have a lemon tree in my yard so I would most use this for citrus recipes – like when I make lemon curd. I’d also love this for grinding whole spices like cinnamon and nutmeg.

    I would need the grater for lemons and oranges, especially this time of year! I am always using oranges with cranberries and the grater would be great, also for nutmeg! 🙂

    I would use these for citrus, cheese, garlic, spices, and any thing else i can think of. These will definitely come in handy.

    I would use these everyday in the kitchen for lemon/limes, chocolate and cheese!!

    Most of my Christmas cookie recipes call for orange, lemon or lime zest, so the fruit zester would be extremely helpful.

    Lisa — November 24, 2012 @ 12:27 pm

    CHEESE! I love it and use it all the time!

    Hannah D — November 24, 2012 @ 8:09 pm

    I would love this for a citrus zester! I always need lemon zest for baking but I have the saddest zester that bends more than it zests!

    Lemon for my sweet Lemon Loaf recipe but I’d love to gift one for cheddar cheese to my kiddo!

    What a wonderful opportunity! I’d use the grater for grating cheese to put on top of salads and it would be great to use in recipes such as tacos, cheesy omelettes, etc. Also the zester is a good tool to have in the kitchen for zesting oranges, limes and lemons for recipes like citrus flavored desserts and adding some flavor to meats such as lemon chicken! Yum! I’m a newlywed and these would be so nice to have in my kitchen!

    My husband and I both love lime, so I’d use it most for zesting limes.
