    Microplane Zesters & Graters

    Our lime tree is full of limes which lead me to pull out my Microplane zester.

    Tool Time the kitchen tools & gadgets I love.

    What started out as a wood working tool in 1990, is now the top selling Kitchen zester/grater tool in the world. Of course I'm talking about Microplane's zesters and graters. 

    Super sharp, yet safe to use I find my Microplane Premium Classic indispensable when baking with citrus.

    The Classic Premium Microplane is for the Grating/Zesting of Chocolate, Hard Cheese, Citrus Zest, Coconut, Ginger and Garlic. Available in a choice of colours.


    Fine lime zest

    Cons: If making custard desserts or citrus curd where you need to remove the zest, the Classic Premium Zester/Grater produces zest that is too fine to be removed. I put my lemon curd through my finest strainer twice and it still had zest in it.

    The Classic Premium Zester/Grater is not a garnishing tool, you won't get attractive topping threads of zest.

    Pros: Microplane do make other tools in a range that includes the Premium Classic range, paddle shaped zesters, rock salt graters to name to few. So you can find the perfect tool for the job.

    Extremely sharp, easy to hold soft grip handle, easy to use, easy to clean, with an included safety guard for storage. 

    Rasp sizes available in the Premium Classic Microplane

    The Microplane is one of those tools that once you have it you'll be asking "How did I live without it!". 

    In Oz you can get Microplane online at Everten or Peters of Kensington

    Elsewhere... Amazon
