FAQs

Is there an attachment for this grater?

No, there is no attachment for any of the Microplane Premium Classic Series graters at this time. However, we do recommend using the cut resistant glove to grate small items like garlic or nutmeg. 

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. 

How do I use a 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!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
  • Top-rack dishwasher safe. Handwash the 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.
