Product Details

Microplane is a household name across the world for their exceptional blades, which grate and zest ingredients without tearing or diminishing their aromas. This zester is designed to help you get the most out of your citrus with the greatest possible ease. You only need to apply the slightest amount of pressure for the razor-sharp blades to gently but precisely extract zest. This means that your ingredients won’t get bruised, and that you’re less likely to run into the bitter pith. The long blade allows you to zest a portion of fruit in one long draw rather than going back and forth, which can cause the undesirable mincing of your zest and accidental grating of the pith. (Food scientist Shirley Corriher compares this motion to ‘playing the violin’.) The Master Series, featuring products with a Kentucky walnut handle, is an homage to their origins as manufacturers of woodworking tools. 

Why we love it

'My food started tasting much better once this zester made it so easy to add lemon, lime or orange zest as a hint of brightness to pretty much anything, from pastas to cakes. I also use it for Parmesan, as the super-fine shreds melt on contact with warm food. The coarse grater's blades are similarly life-changing.'

About The Brand

Microplane

The first Microplane was conceived in 1990 by brothers Richard and Jeff Grace in Arkansas, USA, and was originally intended for use in woodworking. However, as the legend goes, a home cook once decided on a whim to try it out on an orange, and was astonished by the perfectly-shaped shards of zest it could produce. This ultimately led to the development of the Microplane brand as we know it today—a household name and the industry standard for graters, shavers, and zesters.

What sets Microplane products apart from others is their exceptional, long-lasting sharpness: the blades are made by means of a patented photochemical etching process that shapes them far more precisely than traditional mechanical means. The razor-sharp blades finely slice ingredients, rather than crushing or tearing them like the duller metal-stamped blades on standard graters; this makes grating or zesting much less laborious, and improves the taste, texture, and appearance of whatever you’re grating.
