I will email you to get your information!

If you’ve never heard of Microplane kitchen tools before, then PLEASE, don’t click away!! 

I’ve been using Microplane tools for several years already and simply love how useful they are around my kitchen. One of my favorite uses is zesting lemons with their Ultimate Citrus Tool, but there are just so many other uses for these amazing products as well.


Here are some of my favorite Microplane tools — and yes, there’s a giveaway!!

1. Microplane Cheese Mill:

I love this tool because it’s so much easier to use than a rotary-style grater and the old-fashioned box graters that always cut my knuckles. The Cheese Mill has both a fine and coarse blade, as well as a lid to safely store the unused blade — plus, I guarantee you’ll never slice your knuckles again!

2. Microplane Cheese Plane:

This is the best tool I’ve found for quickly and easily slicing cheese — and I slice LOTS of cheese for our freezer! It works well with both soft and hard cheeses and you can adjust the thickness of each slice with a simple twist of the knob on top of the handle. It doesn’t get much easier than that!


3. Microplane Meat Tenderizer:

This brand new, ring-shaped Meat Tenderizer quickly and easily breaks down fibers of tough cuts of meat with its razor-sharp etched blades. It’s also really easy to use because you can simply rock it back and forth over your meat — no more excessive pounding!

4. Microplane Ultimate Citrus Tool:

I saved the “best” for last — my favorite Ultimate Citrus Tool! The one pictured above is their new design which has been enhanced to also include two garnishing blades, and a scoring blade to easily peel citrus fruit. See, I told you it’s a must-have tool for every kitchen!


As I mentioned before, these are just A FEW of my favorite Microplane tools… you can see all the different kitchen tools Microplane offers here {and yes, they would all make awesome Christmas gifts!!}

    i have never used a microplane before but I would love to try the cheese mill or the Ultimate Citrus Tool, we don’t eat meat so the tenderizer would probably be re-gifted to my mom or my future mother-in-law :D but these look like very useful tools!

    I’ve never used their tools, but have no doubt that each item in the giveaway would get plenty of use here. I’m intrigued by the meat tenderizer. :)

    I haven’t tried Microplane tools yet, but would love to. I am especially interested in finding a really good zester. Mine are always rubbish.
