April 2004 Gourmet Guess Contest Prize
This month Gourmet Guess winners will receive a set of Microplane 38000 Professional Series Graters, for a total suggested retail price of $113.70
Microplane 38000 Professional Series Graters are elegant, sturdy and look great on display. Razor-sharp Microplane blades are set in matching 18/8 stainless steel forming an irresistible combination of beauty and function in the Professional Series Graters.
Included in the 38000 Series set are the following blades: fine/spice, coarse, small shaver, large shaver, medium ribbon, and our newest blade, the extra coarse. Use the extra coarse grater for perfect cheddar cheese, the fine for ginger and nutmeg, and the shavers for delectable pieces of chocolate. Suggested retail for the prize is $113.70.
Originally designed for shaving wood, Microplane teeth shave through even the toughest foods with relative ease.
In 1994 a Canadian homemaker, Lorraine Lee, was making an Armenian orange cake when she became intensely frustrated with her zester. Lee found a solution in a line of woodworking tools carried by her husband's hardware store. Lee brought in a wood rasp, pulled its razor-sharp teeth across the orange's peel and was amazed at the results. A shower of pithless zest rested on the top of her cake. Lee alerted her husband to the results, and the couple promptly changed the description of the item in the company catalogue.
From there, a plethora of free press bombarded the tool, resulting in Microplane being informally named by several culinary experts the kitchen advance of the new century. Microplane now carries six series of zesters, graters and shavers with eight different blades, in addition to woodworking and home improvements rasps, trimming tools, Surform replacement blades, rotary shapers and hacksaw blades.
The total suggested retail value of this prize package is $113
