Microplane Gourmet Series Grater with Fine Blade 5 "Superb" 20 January 2020 I have a number of Microplane graters. This, as well as the course one and others. No elbow grease needed whatsoever as they are so sharp everything glides over. Yes it is pricey, but once tried never forgotten how super it is. Easy cleaning just under the tap, so no need to touch the surface. Return to the protective cover which will add to the longevity of it. A joy to use, so highly recommended.
