I was making cupcakes yesterday and I used my fresco ribbon grater for the first time to make chocolate curls. Just wanna share this nifty little product with you because before I was using my regular cheese grater and I was always frustrated by the results, because sometimes the chocolate comes out too fine. So I finally treated myself to a Fresco ribbon grater. You can also get a Microplane Brand Ribbon Grater but it comes out more expensive because of the brand name.
I got this in Pantry Magic Jakarta. Take note there are TWO kinds of Fresco Ribbon Graters, the regular kind and the one that is in the Mark McEwan by Fresco. I took the non-endorser one… well… because it’s slightly cheaper. Another great thing about ribbon graters is, if you buy the wider one like I did, is that if you grate cheese or chocolate diagonally, they come out smaller/finer so it’s also a double purpose product. Bang for your buck is always a big plus for me. So althought the long narrow ones, look cooler, the wide ribbon grater is better value.
- Strong stainless steel wire frame
- Includes plastic cover for safe storage
- Soft-grip handle and end for easy non-slip use
- Etched blades stay sharper longer for consistent cutting results
- Razor-like stainless steel cutting blades for effortless grating and zesting
I wanted to make short chocolate curls so that more chocolate would stick to the icing. But this grater is also good for longer curls.
I am also eyeing the long and narrow “fine” Microplane grater, for grating nutmeg and zesting lemons. But I’m still waiting for stock to arrive in Pantry Magic. Can’t wait!
Do you have a microplane grater at home? Why do you love it? I’d love to hear from you!
