Microplane has won a Red Dot award in the product design category for its new Spice Mill.
According to the company, the spice mill is designed to grind and store hard spices, such as nutmeg and cinnamon. It features a razor-sharp grinding blade that is safely positioned at the base of the mill. The manual-style mill is said to produce individual and personalized grind texture based on the amount of pressure used when twisting the top.
For added convenience, the spice mill also includes a small airtight compartment on the top to store whole nutmeg and pieces of cinnamon stick. Crafted in classic black with a satin-touch body that provides a comfortable and secure grip, the spice mill is top rack dishwasher safe. Available now, the Microplane spice mill has a suggested retail price of $19.95.
The Red Dot award jury of about 40 independent designers, design professors and specialist journalists tested, discussed and assessed each individual product, awarding the Red Dot to products with high design quality. The competition received more than 5,500 entries from 54 countries this year.
