Christie from Emmett, ID– Verified Buyer

I love this item. I use fresh parmesan cheese quite a bit, and it is so much easier to grate with this product. I also use fresh lemon/orange peel in my baking, so this grater will come in handy quite often. It is heavy duty and so easy to handle.

Great quailty! I use this for everything from nutmeg to lemon zest to cheese!

Pros: Easy clean up... I just stick it in the dishwasher! Much more convienent than a box grater!

Very nice zester

Kim's Kitchen Sink from Berkeley, CA

I received this as a free promotional item, but I'm glad I did. I had wanted to try a microplane grater/zester for a while, and this is really great. I've mostly used it to grate parmesan cheese, which it does very well. The cheese is so fine, silky and light, and it just looks pretty! The cheese (mostly) gathers in the little "track" on the backside, and you can just push it out onto your food...though it did take me a little practice to get it right, and I did still spill all over the counter. Practice makes perfect though - I'll just have to find more things to grate!

It's easier to clean than my box grater, but it's still a little tough to clean by hand. I think it's dishwasher safe though, so if I had a dishwasher, cleaning would be a snap. It's not AWFUL to clean though, and that definitely doesn't stop me from using it! I don't have much experience with other graters/zesters, so I can't really compare, but this one seems to do the trick!

Red handled zester

James from Auburn, CA– Verified Buyer

Very sharp and provides a fine zest from lemons, oranges and cheese. Worth the money. I both all three Microplane zesters offered thinking they were of different corseness but in fact, they are all the same. Will give the two spares as gifts.

About the Manufacturer

It started out in 1990, merely as a new type of woodworking tool. The Microplane® rasp was first invented in 1990 by brothers Richard and Jeff Grace at their jointly owned contract manufacturing facility, Grace Manufacturing Inc., in Russellville, Arkansas, USA. The company already had almost 20 years of photochemical machining experience making parts for the high tech printer industry, but it had never really produced any parts of its own design.

"We always had so much really sharp metal lying around that everyone had to stay careful of. We thought. Hey! What would happen if we tried to cut things on purpose? How sharp of a tool could we make and what would you use it for?" remembers Richard.

"So first we etched a series of holes in the metal and then we started trying it on things," added Jeff. "You can tell every desk in the plant that Richard has ever used by the fact that the corners have all been planed away."

Microplane® tools' tiny razor-like edges are formed by a totally different process called photo-etching in which holes are dissolved with a chemical, leaving edges that finely slice instead of tearing or shredding.

The big moment came in 1994, when Lorraine Lee, a homemaker in Ottawa, Canada, was making an Armenian orange cake. Out of frustration with her old grater, she picked up a new tool her husband, Leonard, had brought home from their hardware store, Lee Valley Tools. She slid the orange across its blades and was amazed. Lacy shards of zest fell from its surface like snowflakes. The Lees marveled at the tool, ate the cake, then promptly changed the product description in their catalogue. The Microplane® grater had earned permanent space in the kitchen.

10 years later, Microplane® introduced its Personal Care Line. The Microplane® foot file, with its 95 tiny files working to gently massage and exfoliate dry skin, was created to soothe tired, sore feet and have them feeling silky smooth and full of energy in no time.

No matter the shape: box, flat, or rotary, Microplane®'s competition around the world are tools that have been made the same for hundreds of years. The cutting edges are formed by punching holes into flat or curved stainless steel or tin. Files are made by grinding a rough edge that works by rubbing and tearing.

Microplane® Tools are better because they are sharp yet safe. Try one and expect a Miracle!
