It’s also wonderful for effortless citrus zesting to add natural flavours to a lemon crème brulee or a basic vinaigrette. The classic Microplane zester with its ultra-sharp, long-lasting, photo-etched blade - made in USA – delivers the fastest and most effective method of grating and has a soft touch handle and non-scratch end tabs. Foods are precisely cut, not crushed. The aroma can unfold properly and the flavor is enhanced. Recommended for not only grating citrus zest and hard cheese but also for ginger, garlic, spices, chocolate, truffles, nuts, cinnamon, nutmeg and more. This premium classic zester is used by celebrity chefs, restaurants and home cooks. Available in 13 colours.

The blade ensures that food does not stick or block, but instead gently slides along the cutting surface to produce perfect results every time.
From the manufacturer
From the woodworking to the kitchen...By now, cooking aficionados worldwide are familiar with the story:
The ubig moment came in 1994, when a Canadian housewife was making an orange cake. Out of frustration that her grater was tearing and shredding, she commandeered one of her husband’s favourite woodworking tools from his workshop. The blade slid effortlessly across the orange and the zest fell from its surface like snowflakes. The discovery laid the foundation for the creation of Microplane kitchen graters and an entire line of revolutionary graters was born.

The first reason why I keep buying them is because you won't find anywhere write "Made in Chine" all model use the same made in USA blade despite on the little sticker you can read assembled in Mexico and second they're made for last.
Microplane has now 5 main lines: Professional, Premium classic, Elite, Home, Gourmet
Across all models designs and options differ:
- Professional is similar to many graters, the plate and the handle are all made in stainless steel.
- Premium classic series has that long lean body that everyone recognizes easily as Microplane design, stainless steel blade and plastic/rubber body.
- Gourmet series: looks sleek and offers ample grating and shaving surface, soft-touch handles, plus non slip rubber ends.
- Home Series: The body and handle is made of plastic only the paddle is metal, the quality of the blades is always the same but overall the item looks less profession and more for normal home cooking.
- Elite Series: includes a transparent cover that doubles as a grating catch feature and measuring cup. When positioned underneath the grater, the dual-purpose cover/measuring cup allows chefs and home cooks to conveniently zest citrus and grate a wide range of ingredients with more control and precision.
All series come with small rubber feet in order to give more control preventing accidental slips while grating, they also protect the surfaces and bowls.
In my opinion the purchase should be based always on what you expect want from the item you're buying.
Sturdiness: 1. Professional, 2. Elite, 3. Gourmet / Premium 4. Home.
Design : 1. Elite, 2. Professional 3. Gourmet 4. Premium 4. Home
Blades: 1. Professional, Gourmet, Premium, 2 Home and elite.
To say is that you can buy as optional the slider attachment, this one will keep your hands safely away from blades while grating.
The attachment is available only for the: Home, Professional and Gourmet series.
The very last thing to say is that you can still buy the Classic Zester on amazon Mod. 40020 this one as been discontinued, doesn't have rubber feets and reviews states that the plastic is made off is not sturdy as the premium series.
So far, only tested on citrus, but I have no doubt it will eat nutmeg for brekkie, and be brilliant for shaving most other dried goods. I’m keen to try it out on air-dried meat. BTW - the resultant granules make a fantastic sprinkle for salads etc.
Be warned - it is as sharp as a surgeons scalpel, so treat with respect, wash it well (I used a new toothbrush) and afterit’s dry, put it back in the sheath. No nasty unexpected bites when you put your hand in the cutlery drawer ...
Now looking for a broader version of the same thing 💪🏻
Grating ginger and garlic is amazing....gives almost a puree texture ideal for marinades
Comes with a useful protective cover to store it in
The pros are it is very durable and seems to maintain it's sharpness well, due to the length it can grate quite quickly high volumes of, for example parmesan, and it is relatively easy to clean as it is easier to access and wash than a box-style grater, and as it is narrow it is easy to store in a drawer.
The only real cons are that if grating over a tall bowl the end cannot be rested on the worktop so it hovers above the bowl which when grating larger volumes can get a bit messy and drying it is tricky as it is a fine grater towels tend to catch on it but overall it is by far the best made and most general purpose grater I have used and so highly recommend it.
It can be used by either, rubbing the fruit etc, over the zester or rubbing the zester over the fruit, by doing the latter you can be more accurate where you zest. It comes with a strong plastic sleeve to protect the zester and your fingers while it is being stored.
To anyone who is thinking about buying a zester, seriously think about this one.
