Microplane Zester-Grater Description
- Premium Series

Premium soft-touch handle and non-scratch end tabs. This tool grates even the hardest Parmesan Reggiano as well as other hard cheeses into fine lacy wisps. Ideal for topping spaghetti and meatballs or a Caesar salad. It’s also wonderful for effortless citrus zesting to add natural flavors to a lemon crème brulee or a basic vinaigrette.
Multi purpose tool recommended for grating garlic, grating ginger, grating parmesan cheese. You can also use as a nutmeg grater or gain the benefits of cinnamon by grating it on this tool.
If you are right-handed, hold the lemon (citrus) in your left hand with a side up as if it were the neck of a violin. Take the Microplane® Zester in your right hand and make sure the sharp edges of the cutter are aimed away from you toward the lemon. Make sure to lightly grip the smooth edges of the tool (thumb on one side, four fingers on the other). Now, stroke the Zester across the lemon as if you were playing the violin. The zest collects in the upper channel. Voila! Incredible fine shavings of zest--no more grated knuckles!
For use with cheese, we suggest stretching it across the top of a bowl.
