Microplane 48310 Ginger Tool 3in1 Grate Peel Slice Stainless steel / White / Grey
About this deal
What remains is, depending on the amount, a unique sharpness in flavor which is a wonderful seasoning for many dishes. Unlike the rectangular teeth of the rasp-style zester, the ginger tool has triangular teeth that enables it to shave through the fibrous stem of ginger root more cleanly. The Microplane Ginger 3-in-1 Tool takes care of peeling, grating and slicing ginger all in one tool. Many savvy home chefs find themselves turning to Microplane when they need a reliable and sharp tool for their food prep. This makes it quick and easy to grate and use the juice as well, which I tend to loose if I’m chopping it by hand or grating it on a cheese grater!
By contrast, the zester-grater (which was also brand-new) left a pile that was definitely more wet and mushy. The biggest difference between this grater and the classic zester-grater is the shape of its razor-like teeth. Also easy to storage with its long, ultra-flat and compact design, and a loop to hang it up if needed. I use mine regularly, but over the past few months, I've found myself reaching for a new style of Microplane grater: the 3-in-1 ginger tool.
So while I'll hold onto my zester for when I need to trim frozen cake and my ribbon grater for whenever I'm feeling fancy, I have a feeling my ginger tool is bound to become a new essential for quicker, cleaner, more ginger-loaded weeknight cooking. After a short amount of time, you can have plenty of fresh ginger piled up and ready to be scooped out. Globally recognized, Microplane is the original manufacturer to apply photo-etching technology to graters, an innovative process designed to create ultra-sharp cutting edges. ENHANCE THE AROMA - Using the Ginger Tool 3in1 guarantees the ginger to be cut precisely and allows the aroma to unfold and the flavor is enhanced!
When I first used the tool, I marveled at the pile of fluffy ginger it produced—so much so that I grated too far too fast and nicked my finger, which leads to the second reason why I love the tool. So with ceramic graters there’s a risk of using too much ginger in recipes (though admittedly that’s not really a bad thing in my book). But within a few months those little rectangular teeth become so dull they stop cutting and start mashing. When sautéed in oil as if for a stir-fry, different ginger samples cooked evenly and in roughly the same amount of time, and their flavor and texture were nearly indistinguishable from sample to sample. Made in USA, the tiny teeth behave like sharp knives, cutting ingredients with precision rather than tearing them.
We have everything for the dedicated and occasional gardener alike, as well as providing great places to visit for a great cup of coffee and much more. Right now I am eying the microplane rasp premium, but we do already have a regular grater at home and I don't cook that often. Grating works fine, but it seems as if the youtube cooks grate the ginger especially in no time, and for me it takes quite some minutes (cause its frozen and I keep adjusting my grip to not freeze my fingers off, and then sometimes its not quite the right angle so barely anything gets grated off).
And one tablespoon of ginger puree has a lot more ginger in it than one tablespoon of fluffy grated ginger bits. Models with etched or stamped holes made quicker work of grating than did those with “crowns” (bigger, ragged-edged etched holes), teeth, or nubs, taking less than a minute to produce 1 tablespoon of puree. PRACTICAL KITCHEN MULTI TOOL - This utensil allows you to peel, grate and slice ginger, an ingredient that is usually difficult to work with.Our two favorites were the fastest, producing 1 tablespoon of puree in just 15 seconds; both had etched holes. Crafted using original Microplane stainless steel etched blades, the seriously sharp and efficient 3-in-1 Ginger Tool is the only gadget needed when cooking or baking with ginger. A ginger grater is a tool designed for optimally mincing ginger, and it is made for getting the most out of the irregularly-shaped root.
