Microplane Debuts Chocolate and Spice Cup Graters

Designed for grating chocolate and a number of spices, Microplane’s new Cup Graters expand the company’s signature line of hand-held graters. 

Crafted in a cream-white, the graters are said to be durable and lightweight and are designed to add grated toppings directly to sweet and savory dishes and beverages. At less than three inches tall, each Cup Grater features a round 3-inch diameter and a “bottomless” design. The graters also include clear protective covers for safe storage.

The Chocolate Cup Grater was designed using the company’s medium-size Ribbon blade and is ideal for chocolate, coconut and hard candy, such as peppermint sticks. The Spice Cup Grater feature’s the company’s super-fine Space blade and was designed for cinnamon sticks or whole nutmeg. A wide soft-touch red band is wrapped around the grater. The band for the chocolate grater is brown.

Available in October, the graters are made in the USA and have a suggested retail price of $9.95 each.
