ICTC's outstanding kitchen tools
Distributed in the UK by ICTC, Microplane’s kitchen tools consist of world-class graters for professionals that have been available for nearly 20 years.
During this time the company has become market leader in producing high quality kitchen graters and, after undergoing extensive testing from the Craft Guild of Chefs, professional chefs also agree and the Craft Guild has now endorsed them.
Testing was conducted on the Microplane Gourmet Series including the fine, coarse, extra coarse, and ribbon blade, plus the Microplane Premium Classic zester. All products received fantastic reviews from the Craft Guild’s panel of testers.
Comments about the Gourmet coarse included: “this grater performed so much better than any we have used before in our kitchens”, while the Gourmet extra coarse was described as “a good, razor-sharp piece of kitchen equipment”, and the premium zester as a tool that “zests beautifully – just gliding the blade off at the right level with precision”.
The extensive paddle-shaped Gourmet series was enhanced in design and function. It looks sleek and offers an ample grating and shaving surface, soft touch handle, plus non-slip rubber ends for added stability. The Premium Classic series also features the company’s iconic long and narrow rasp-style.
The company says the secret to their performance is the patented Microplane process, which uses chemicals to create sharp cutting surfaces. Globally recognised as the original manufacturer of photo-etched cutting tools, Microplane blades are still manufactured in the US.
