About this deal

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. As well as a side with nice big, sharp holes for coarse grating things like cheese, courgettes and carrots, there’s also a finer side for grating ingredients like parmesan and ginger, and a slice function to cut single slices of ingredients like cheese, cucumber, carrot and radish. Some zesters come with a protective cover or sheath that you can use to cover the blades when you're not grating or zesting. But finding that perfect amount of spice or zest can be tricky, especially if you’re not using the right utensil. The Zester has found enthusiastic support from professional chefs and passionate hobby chefs around the world and has earned a permanent place in restaurants and home kitchens.

Our Mission: make food fun and healthy, be cognizant of our environment impact with food, and involve kids in cooking. While this is a nice addition, you can simply zest into your own containers, so not including a container isn't a deal breaker for us. A zester (also, citrus zester or lemon zester) is a kitchen utensil for obtaining zest from lemons and other citrus fruit.

This sits nicely in the hand whilst you zest downwards onto a chopping board; its sharp little corners softened by two anti-scratch silicone feet.

It even has a sleek and stylish design that will surely accent your kitchen and that’s always fun to have. Citrus zest can brighten up a meal with its fresh tangy flavor or work its magic in a range of tasty baked goods. But first, you need a quality zester to remove the zest from the fruit without getting bitter rind in the mix.Some zesters have cleaning accessories included, such as brushes or squeegees, to help clean in tight corners or get rid of wet zest from the blade before it dries and sticks.

Using a zester is much more practical than a grater if you only need a small pinch of a particular ingredient because a grater won’t be able to give you a small pinch. Cheese needs to be cut into small cubes, but it would come in useful if you’re not grating in bulk and want kids to be able to use it. Those who cook with a lot of fresh ginger will know the faff often involved with peeling, slicing and grating. But if you add just a sprinkle of cinnamon or cloves to the apples or the crust, you give the pie a wonderful, spicy, warmth to the dish that transforms it entirely. A grater will cut a little deeper than a zester will and you’ll get some of the fruit’s oils and even juices, which can add more flavor than just simple zesting.Its blades are incredibly sharp, which made light work of hard vegetables like carrots – thankfully it comes with a reusable blade cover to keep fingers safe when delving into kitchen draws. In fact, many people can’t even tell the difference between the two and often rely on the labels to tell them which is which. It’s easy to clean and the super-sharp blades make it wonderful for zesting a wide variety of different things. We tested graters with a combination of fresh ingredients, to bring you our picks of the best models on the market. Now that you’ve learned the difference between a grater and a zester, you’ve probably decided about whether you want one or the other for your own kitchen, or perhaps even both of them.

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. This zester has really unparalleled curved sides which make it rigid in a unique way that other zesters do not have.It's also best to avoid scrubbing them with metal scourers, which could damage the finish or dull the blades.
