Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Microplane is a registered trademark of Grace Manufacturing Inc., a company that makes photo etched steel tools (surform tools) for grating, grinding and sanding.Microplane graters are used for the grating of various food items, such as nutmeg and cheese, and also as zesters for citrus fruit.Microplane originally made wood rasps and shaving disks and they continue to do so today.In 2002, Grace Manufacturing Inc filed a lawsuit against Browne and Co. Ltd. among others, alleging that the Cuisipro "Accutec" line of etched graters infringed on Microplane patents, and that Browne and Co. practices with regard to the Accutec brand represented unfair competition. Grace further made public statements at that time, intended to create distance between their graters and the Accutec line of products, particularly from the historical context associated with Microplane (for example, stating that only Microplane products had a history in woodworking use(such as crafting skills to make historical replicas of atlatl), and that Accutec was not to be considered a next-generation design).show more
