I have a great giveaway for you from Microplane!


One of my readers will win 3 Microplane kitchen tools!


First up, is this Microplane Herb Mill!

I made meatballs the other day and the recipe called for 1/4 cup of chopped parsley. This was the perfect time to test out the Microplane Herb Mill! 
It’s very easy to put together.  You just have to be careful when inserting or removing the sharp blades.  It comes with a diagram and instructions.  You simply add the herbs to the Mill and put the green top on.  While gently applying downward force, twist the top in a back-and-forth motion.

I thought it did a great job and it’s fun to use!


The second product in the giveaway is one Microplane Classic Series Premium Zester/Grater!



I always wanted one of these!  I love the heavy-duty plastic guard that comes with it.


It grated my Parmesan cheese very nicely!


The third product is a Microplane Cheese Mill!


Just load the Mill with little chunks of cheese and insert the Top. 


While gently applying downward pressure, rotate the Top in the clockwise direction to grate the food.
My opinion:  Each of the Mills are easy to use, assemble, and clean, and are dishwasher safe.  As far as I’m concerned, every cooking enthusiast should have their own Microplane Zester/Grater.  It is definitely a kitchen tool that gets used quite often.

Would you like to win a Microplane Herb Mill, Cheese Mill, and Grater/Zester?

    How wonderful. I love Microplane’s products! I used their zester to make my Meyer Lemon Cake and it produced the finest zests! I love it. Can’t wait to try the cheese grater and herb grinder! :)

    I would make the Layered Caribbean Chicken Salad using the Microplane Herb Mill to chop the fresh cilantro. I love Microplane products, they are great, wish I could win these 3 kitchen tools.

    I have this wonderful recipe for no sugar added lemon cookie bars that uses the zest from three lemons. That zester is exactly what I’ve been looking for! The one I have takes forever to zest even one lemon.

    Diane says

    My husband has been asking for homemade thin crust pizza. The cheese grater would be my choice but the herb Mill would be great also.

    Nancy says

    “That Good Pasta Thing” {I just totally made up that recipe name, because that;s what we call it! :)}
    Pasta, olive oil. onion, garlic, basil *this is where I’d love to grind fresh!* tomato, lots of bite-sized veggies, Parmesan *this is where I’d love to use the grater!* a bit of red pepper. Easy enough to add chicken.

    I liked Make Ahead Meals for Busy Moms and Microplane on facebook.

    I would love to use the cheese grater for my seafood alfredo recipe!

    Cindy Nardo Gross says

    I like microplane on facebook and I would use the cheese grater to make my favorite gnocchi recipe.

    Jackie McClinton says

    I would make some of my delish Spaghetti with Meaty Marinara Sauce. I would use the Microplane Herb Mill to help add the herbs to my sauce. I would use the Microplane Zester/Grater to add the fresh Parmesan to my Spaghetti pasta and the Microplane Cheese Mill would be used to grate the Mozzarella cheese on top of the Sauce & Spaghetti at serving time. WOW! I would be using all three of these wonderful little helpers! Thanks for this opportunity!!!

    Schmidty says

    I would use the zester to zest lemons for a cheesecake. Or, for fresh grated parmesan for my alfredo sauces..

    Courtney Mac says

    Would love, love, love to have these tools! Would come in really handy for my cajun chicken pasta dish!

    thanks so much

    Sharon says

    I’d use the zester/grater to grate cheese for making overnight souffle (which is a breakfasty eggs and sausage dish)

  14. 255

    Stephanie says

    I’d love to use the microplane to grate fresh nutmeg on egg nog (okay, I know Christmas is over, but I’d do it next year!)

  15. 298

    Kim Hutchins says

    My husband would love these. It would assist him when he makes his seafood pizza. He would actually use all three of these making his pizza. Hope I win for him.

    Kelly D says

    I put Parmesan Cheese on everything!! So I would probably just make noodles w/ butter and grate some fresh Parmesan for the top!

  17. 343

    MommaMary says

    I would zest a lemon for lemon pound cake, and use the fresh herb mill to make spaghetti sauce and finally the cheese grater to put some cheese on the spaghetti. Love their products

  18. 355

    Katherine D. says

    basil pesto! I could use the microplane and have the basil already chopped up!

    Nicole Perino says

    There are so many recipes & dishes i would use them for. but one recipe I would love it for is making homemade Garlic Bread. The Microplane Herb Mill is great for chopping parsley, Zester is fantastic for zesting garlic & the Cheese Mill is perfect for a little mozzarella cheese right before popping it into the over.. Yummm!

    I tweeted this giveaway using the button at the top of this post. & is going to everyday till this giveaway is over, cause i really want to win this one!!

    Melissa G says

    I would love the cheese grater just to have the convenience of fresh grated cheese rather than the store-bought package!

  23. 440


    I have a garlic slicer the that works the same as these….I absolutely love it!! The first thing I would make with these tools, lasagna!! Fresh herbs, fresh grated cheeses, need I say more???

  24. 447

    Angela Popp says

    I would make lasagna and use the cheese microplane to put extra Parmesan all over the top…there is nothing better than eating at Olive Garden where you get the oooey gooey cheese inside the dish and then a big bunch of fresh shredded Parmesan cheese all over the top!! Love it!

  25. 450

    Reese says

    I could use all three. My grandfather taught me how to make spaghetti sauce from scratch so the herb mill would be fantastic for grinding up the basil and oregano I use, the zester/microplane would be fantastic forgrating garlic which helps release its oils and fragrance and the cheese grater, WELL, what is a spaghetti dinner without some Parmesan cheese on top!

  26. 463

    Linda B. says

    Would love to use all three…zestergrater for adding fresh nutmeg to recipes and for orange and lemon zest too. The cheese mill for grating my own parm and would use more fresh herbs if I had the herb mill.
