An excellent Micro Plane

Frank Terranova | Jan 14, 2009 04:07 PM

People spend a ton of money on kitchen gadgets. I was watching my kid using this thing called the Ped Egg. I was just watching and then checked this out. It was a micro plane for the feet. If you dont know about we chefs use some wild things in kitchens now this is a staple. Whie practicing for the Culinary Olympics I needed to shave down some frozen fish fillets to fuse together 3 different types of fish. needing to plane the filets to 3/8" thick i went to the store and bought this womans foot micro plane they came in a 3 pak All I can say is now i have rid the long trim micro planes and just use this ped egg. Toy can scrape lemons or whatever just like brushing shoes because it scrapes in both directions then collects its contents in the container. You have no idea how great this goofy little foot thing has been used even for cheeses,spice perries, citrus, even frozen fish as we used plus the scrapings were so fine we easily made a moussiline so smooth. Check these little things out
