I recently made a fabulous cake from Fine Cooking magazine, but it required a huge amount of grating lemon rind. Does anyone know of a device or a short cut to doing this laborious task?
Does the microplane grate as fine as the fine side of the box grater?
It depends on the one you choose. The fine one might be similar, but at the same time, it's a different texture. The rind [zest] comes off in lovely fine strips, instead of being actually grated, as it is with the box grater.
i know its kind of in the same family..., just a bit kinky in my book..plus, it actually doesn't really grate as much as exfoliate..that is just not a term i'm use to in the kitchen...bathroom yes, kitchen no...Joey, the PedEgg is a microplane; just a palm-filling version. So there's no reason not to use it.
Come to think of it, with the built-in collecting box, it actually makes sense.
