We have a Microplane cheese grater that is about 10 years old and still cuts Parmesan cheese as if it's butter. Based on our experience with their product, we thought it would be a no-brainer to go with the Grater/Zester.

Mary loves how easy it is to use and the super sharp blades make it a breeze to grate everything she uses it for. Don't go cheap, go Microplane.

I love this zester! I bake and cook a lot. And this is the best zester I've used. It's sharp. It's durable. It's top quality. I've grated ginger & frozen parmesan cheese with ease. It's ideal for zesting citrus fruits; taking off only the flavourful color part of the peel and not the bitter white part that lays further underneath. It's so sharp and zests so finely that its an absolute pleasure to use (anyone who uses a good quality sharp knife knows the feeling/satisfaction I'm talking about here). I've even noticed this zester being used on some cooking programs on tv. I also love that it comes with it's own case to keep it sharp and safe while in the drawer. It's held up for 4 years and still going strong. When my partner recently left me and took this zester with him, I went out and bought an exact replacement from amazon, not even bothering to look at anything else because in my mind THIS is the IDEAL zester. Look no further my friend. Get this!

I've had this grater for a few years now and still use it regularly, while it has stayed sharp. Love it. Very handy for quickly and easily zesting citrus, grating hard cheeses, or fresh spices such as nutmeg.

There's not much bad to say about the Microplane series of graters. They perform a job, and a bit more, and do it very well.

The grater/zester can also be used for different things, but the cover lists its potential well. You can use it to grind down hard nuts, powder dark chocolate, grate parmigiana finely, zest citrus, or any other application you could think of. I use it for fresh nutmeg nuts.

I've seen Microplane products be used bi-weekly for 5-6 years without losing sharpness, which is a testament to the steel they use in their products. Make sure you hand wash with mild detergent and a non-abrasive pad as soon as you use it, and you'll have a lasting tool in your kitchen.

As a benefit, these even come with a plastic cover to protect the blade when you don't use it. Just press on the sides of the plastic to push it back on.

This is a great, high-quality grater. Very easy to use and clean, which was my biggest concern. I've owned some other graters in the past that were a huge pain to maintain and have also rusted.

I use this on ginger, garlic, nutmeg, and cheese.

I use it regularly for citrus zest and Parmesan. My mother-in-law loves it for nutmeg and it works really well for that. Keep in mind that it makes very fine, fluffy shreds of Parmesan - my husband prefers regular coarsely shredded Parmesan because it says he can tastes it better that way. I keep my ginger roots in the freezer and it grates them very easily while frozen.

I bought this as a gift for my parents and it works like a charm. A great microplane, very sharp.

I use it for citrus zest and grating hard cheeses, nutmeg and chocolate. I keep fresh ginger root in the freezer and grate it on my cooking rasp-- no strings! This is so easy to use and easy to clean. Just rinse out right away. The only caveat: the results with this are very fine so if you want big curls of zest, use something else.
I am buying several of these as stocking stuffers for Christmas this year.
