Microplane Box Grater and Protective Glove

I'm always on the lookout for ways to enhance vegetable prep, the more variety and texture, the better.  This Microplane Box Grater is a wonderful tool and is not your average grater, not by a long shot.  This is all you need to make an exciting salad with texture rich variations.

I love the chunky ergonomic handle and the protective cover.  This is a smart design keeping fingers safe when reaching for it, everything with blades should come with covers, but they don't, so this is a great feature.

These blades are super sharp and grating is effortless--so be careful because it goes very fast!  Each side has a different blade with one side being a mini mandoline and one side is removable for easy clean up.  The grater has rubber feet for stability, just place the grater on your cutting board or into a work bowl and go. Awesome grater!  You can find worthy seconds at a discounted price on their website, HERE.

And if you sometimes get distracted like I do, it wouldn't hurt to wear this protective cut resistant glove.  I've sliced my fingers before on mandolines and this is just a way to have some peace of mind.  I have small hands and was afraid it might be too big, but it was fine.  Find it HERE.

ok if you need a glove that's got to be a serious grater. i love my small microplane and i bet this one is even mightier.

Heh, that protective glove is a very good idea... I've had some really bad accidents with a mandoline, so I should probably invest in one, too.

Yep, it's pretty hard core. You don't need the glove, but if you tend to get distracted like I do (four year old), then it's not a bad idea!
