If you are into kitchen gadgets and utensils like I am, you probably have several different Microplane graters and raspers. I love the quality of the products and how consistently they work.
Well a couple weeks ago we were visiting our friends who live near Châlot-sur-Saône a couple of weeks ago and I learned something very interesting. It seems that Microplane started as a wood working tool manufacturer. Our friend use to rep these products and still have the show room board in his workshop. Amazing to see how the products have evolved, but also in the way they still look the same.
