The Microplane 4-sided box grater is so versatile in your kitchen. The Ultra Coarse blade, along with two of the most popular grating surfaces from Microplane, the Fine/Zester and the Medium Ribbon, form three sides and the Slicer blade makes 4. It has an soft grip, ergonomic handle, is very easy to clean, and the cover protects you and the blades while in storage. Measuring 4.5x3x10.5" (11x8x27cm), it is big enough to handle a number of grating responsibilities in your food prep. While it is dishwasher safe, we recommend hand washing for longevity. Black, stainless steel, silicon.
