Microplane Elite Series Zester Graters transform citrus fruits, aromatics and hard cheeses into flavorful garnishes and more! The soft-grip handle and attached measuring cup make zesting citrus or grating hard cheeses and aromatics like garlic and ginger a breeze! Whether you’re looking for the perfect garnish or the quickest way to grate ingredients for your favorite recipe, Microplane Elite Series Zester Graters are for you!

The Microplane Elite Series includes a transparent cover that doubles as a grating catch feature and measuring cup with a generous 1-cup capacity. Use the stainless steel Microplane® fine blade to create flavorful citrus zest without any of bitter white pith just under the fruit’s peel. It's stellar at grating aromatics, such as shallots, onions, garlic, and ginger into a fine paste that melts and blends instantly with other ingredients in a pan, as well as transforming Parmesan and other hard cheese into powdery mounds for garnishing pasta and other savory dishes. 

Use a Zester Grater for:

Zest citrus at the perfect depth to only get the zest, and not the bitter white pith.  It is a multi-purpose tool it is recommended for grating garlic, grating ginger, grating parmesan cheese.  You can also use as a nutmeg grater or gain the benefits of cinnamon by grating it on this tool. The made in USA blade has super sharp teeth to increase its efficiency.   It does not rip or tear the food and prevents bruising.

Is there an attachment for this grater?

The Elite Series curved shape makes using a food guard difficult, instead, we recommend the Microplane cut resistant glove.

How do you Zest?

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.

 How do I know when I need to replace my zester?     

When zesting a lemon, if you notice that the zest is more like a wet and oily paste, then it is time for a new grater.  Undulled teeth will provide dry, fluffy zest.
