FAQs

Is there a food guard attachment for this grater?

We recommend using the cut resistant glove when using this tool. 

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!

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. 

What is Zest?

Zest, is the grated rind of a citrus fruit, and the Microplane zesters do this with little effort, and the teeth are set so that you don't end up with the layer of white skin, called the pith which is bitter.

Why use Zest?

Zest add an extra level of flavor to dishes, without adding liquid, it is a popular way to add flavor, without adding calories as well.  You can decorate with zest as well, adding color and flavor.  

I want a thick zest - does this tool do that?

This tool is for fine zesting ideal for baking and cooking.   A thicker zest is can be created with a larger blade type like a coarse blade, or you can use a garnishing tool called a cannelle knife, often people call this zest, but at Microplane we call this a garnish or a twist. 

Use and Care
  • Hand wash only - do not soak in water to preserve wood handle. 
  • Condition handle as needed with mineral oil
  • We recommend rinsing your grater in warm water immediately after each use. Remove trapped particles from the non-sharp side whenever possible.
  • Store with blade covered when not in use.
