Microplane 46002 - Premium Classic Extra Coarse Zester Cheese Grater Black
- Product Review (submitted on July 11, 2013):
- Anyone want to buy my old zester? Because this microplane tool obsolesces it completely. Comes with a very handy plastic sleeve or tube kind of storage device. Very sharp, it's zero effort to remove the zest, the thin yellow part, of a lemon, which is what I wanted it for. Try stuffing lemon zest under the skin of the next whole chicken you roast, and THE BEST lemonade you will ever taste is made from lemon juice, simple syrup (boil H2O and sugar mixed 1:1 for three minutes and cool) AND FRESH LEMON ZEST. Amazing flavor, but ONLY in the thin, thin top yellow layer! This is perhaps not an essential tool, but definitely something you'd like to have in the kitchen. A little lemon or lime zest as a garnish would be mighty nice on fish, for instance. A unique product. Excellent quality. Could not be happier with it.
