About Us

Take me directly to Range of services

Based in Russellville, Arkansas, Microplane - a division of Grace Manufacturing Inc., - is a premier global brand, renowned for engineering exceptionally sharp and effective culinary tools. Microplane® graters have distinguished themselves from other graters by using an original chemical process, perfected in over 50 years’ experience, to create long-lasting, ultra-sharp cutting edges. Our experience and expertise in photo-etching manufacturing over the last 50 years has, earned Microplane the finest reputation in the industry. Microplane has highly trained personnel and constantly strives to improve our processes, exploring new technologies and production techniques. Microplane only uses the highest quality stainless steel for making our etched graters. While other companies claim to use surgical stainless steel, Microplane actually uses the same premium steel that we use for our medical supplies division. In addition to using the highest quality stainless steel, we only use “half too full hard” steel vs softer steel.  Whilst stainless steel is more expensive and takes longer to etch, it results in longer-lasting, superior quality edges! The Microplane brand promise addresses both the hobby and professional chefs desire to cook with enjoyment, efficiency and deliver high quality results! The Microplane brand promises reliable, best in class products that incorporate the most advanced technology available worldwide.

Microplane delivers on a commitment to provide both home cooks and culinary professionals the tools needed to create an excellent cooking experience.

Microplane graters are distinctly different from other graters by using the photo-etching process to create ultra-sharp cutting edges that deliver superior performance. This technology has been leveraged into other areas of the kitchen and food preparation in order to expand the range of grating solutions and have a greater relevance to consumers. Regardless of the application, the expectation is the same – to provide reliable, best in class products by leveraging the most advanced blade technology to deliver outstanding quality products every time.

Many blade styles can be used on the same foods. It is simply a matter of choice, depending on which grating result is desired.

It is really just a matter of individual taste.
