The range is not only an absolute must-have for people who love to cook and have a passion for design-led kitchenware, it’s also for everyone looking for something unique and special.

Inspired by Microplane’s heritage and expertise in ultra-sharp woodworking tools, the BLACK SHEEP Series is a true object of desire, successfully combining a dramatic and extravagant look with the soft curves of the robust matt black stainless-steel handle, frame and blade, coated in functional PVD for extra-scratch resistance.

Made in the USA, the blades unrivalled sharpness is achieved by using the original Microplane photo-etched technology creating blades and teeth that

behave like sharp knives to cut effortlessly, without ripping or tearing and releasing the natural aroma of ingredients to prepare stunning dishes for every day occasions.

Equipped with a non-slip rubber base for stability, the graters remain stable on the work surface regardless of the angle of use. A hole at the end of the comfortable ‘velvet-feel’ handle allows cooks to display the range on a kitchen wall or rack for easy access or, as the graters have a modern low- design and protective cover, can be stored safely in a drawer. While dishwasher safe, the long-lasting BLACK SHEEP series can be clean & quickly by simply rinsing under the tap.

The Microplane® BLACK SHEEP Series has recently been awarded the internationally acclaimed Red Dot Award: Product Design 2022 ‘distinction for high quality design’.

Making all culinary experiences possible, there are FIVE blade styles for specific, superior, grating and slicing results

• The original, iconic, long, narrow Zester is the go-to- choice for all citrus fruits (avoiding the bitter white pith), parmesan, and other hard cheese, chocolate, ginger, garlic and nutmeg. With no pressure, the food slides quickly and easily from the blade without tearing, shredding or blocking to produce perfect results every time. The paddle-shaped graters include Fine, Coarse, Extra Coarse and Ribbon blades:

• The Fine Grater is perfect for grating aromatics and spices – shallots, onions, garlic and ginger – into a fine paste for gourmet cooking results. The grater also transforms Parmesan and other hard cheeses into a fluffy cloud for garnishing pasta and other savoury dishes.

• The Coarse Grater creates larger texture grating of all types of hard cheese, carrots, coconut and ginger for savoury and sweet dishes. Highly versatile for everyday cooking and entertaining, the Coarse Grater is ideal for preparing ingredients for hot and cold dishes from quiche, frittata, pasta sauces and hearty casseroles to soups.

• The Extra Coarse Grater is a champion at making beautiful coleslaw and grating root vegetables like potatoes, onions and carrots for stir-fries, fritters, gratins and fresh salads. The Extra Coarse is also the blade of choice for grating cold butter for pastry or fresh coconut to garnish cupcakes and deserts.

• The Ribbon Blade is designed to grate in both directions allowing a natural back and forth movement to create medium-thin slices of vegetables such as courgette, carrot, radish, cabbage, onion and potato, as well as hard cheese and fruit, and chocolate for decorative flourishes.
