Microplane Elite Zester

Soft-grip handle and measuring feature makes zesting citrus fruit a breeze!

Derived from the original woodworking tool that made the Microplane® Zester famous, the Elite Zester has the same famous razor-sharp rasp and includes a soft-grip handle and a catch feature that makes citrus zesting easier and more convenient!

  • Zesting with a Microplane Zester: 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. 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. Make sure to lightly grip the smooth edges of the tool (thumb on one side, four fingers on the other). Now, stroke the Zester across the lemon as if you were playing the violin. The zest collects in the upper channel. Voila! Incredible fine shavings of zest--no more grated knuckles! For use with cheese, we suggest stretching it across the top of a bowl. You can also purchase our cut resistant glove for additional protection!
  • Top-rack dishwasher safe. Hand wash cover.

  • We recommend rinsing your grater in warm water immediately after each use. Remove trapped particles from the non-sharp side whenever possible. To remove trapped particles on the front, first soak the tool in warm water and then use a cleaning brush to stroke in the same direction as the teeth.

  • Store with blade covered when not in use.

Does the Microplane® Elite Zester come in different colors?

Currently, the new Elite Series Zester is available in black and red only.

Best zester ever!
Irene Gazdziak (Palatine, IL) 8/10/2015 1:53 PM
I can't tell you how many zesters I have bought in my lifetime - none have worked. A lady in a kitchen store suggested the Microplane zester - wish I would have met her first! Not only does it do an excellent job of zesting, but it also catches & measures it! I'm so happy with this company that I've thrown out all my graters and replaced them with Microplane products. Thank you for making quality merchandise! I would recommend any of them to anyone.
