Microplane Premium Classic Zester / Grater with Red Handle


Red handled zester

 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.

Good deal!

 from Puyallup, WA– Verified Buyer

I have used this microplaner on parmesan cheese, and I love the results. I'm really excited to try out some spices like whole nutmeg on some hot mixed drinks... I'm sure it'd make the best garnish with this tool!

Great Grater

 from Albany, CA– Verified Buyer

I have looked at this zester/grater for a long time and finally ordered it. It really works well. Easy to use and very sharp it makes the job of zesting citrus and grating things like nutmeg and cheese much easier. I will probably get some of the other sizes in the future.

 from Lakeland, FL

This is a great product. I have tried others and they do not compare. This is so easy to use and gets the job done quickly. I use it on oranges, lemons, limes and cheese. There are probably a million other uses. It is so sharp and well balanced. Great tool for my kitchen!

Everyone Should Own One

 from Toronto, Canada– Verified Buyer

I think that anyone who zests or grates should own one of these (though not necessarily the 'premium' model). They are light years ahead of the box grater you probably grew up with, because the teeth are actually sharp.

No kitchen should be without one!

 from Seattle, WA– Verified Buyer

Great for zesting, garlic, ginger, hard cheeses, or grating chocolate over a dessert!

Gave as a gift

 from North Carolina– Verified Buyer

I've had one like this for a long time. I love it for grating hard cheese, nutmeg, ginger and other things which I want to grate very fine.

Manufacturer Details
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!
