2014 heralded the 20th anniversary of Microplane, an unlikely, almost accidental kitchen tool that changed the way modern cooks prepare food. During this year’s International Home & Housewares show the press were able to meet key executives and designers behind the brand’s historic rise in the housewares industry, and enjoyed a taste of the special citrus cake that catapulted Microplane from the wood shop to the kitchen.

Among the many products highlighted by Microplane this year, two stuck out in my mind as unique in form and function – the Spiral Cutter and the Cube Grater.
