Selected User Reviews For Microplane Classic Zester
It is possible that the item is The following is a description of my mother It was purchased both by my mother in law and myself for my husband (1/5)
She also purchased it The two were quite different from one another. The sheath was attached to hers. There was something different about the "made in USA" and it was slightly deeper. It was dull, however, which was the most noticeable difference. The edge of hers was so sharp you couldn't run a finger over It's hard to imagine how two products with the same model number and manufactured by the same company could be so different from one another. The item I received appears to be counterfeit, but I have no way of knowing for sure. There is a lot of concern about it I wish my mother had- The way I see it, if my husband had not purchased the same item, I would have simply assumed it was a low-quality product. I have lost a lot of trust in Amazon because of this kind of thinking.

There is a counterfeit listing on this site (1/5)
There is a counterfeit listing for this item. The Microplane (actual item) that I purchased in 2009 shaved and lasted beautifully for almost 10 years until today. A MICROPLANE logo and a patent number were printed on the handle. My replacement, which bills itself as microplane from this very site, and offers the banner on Amazon stating "You purchased this item on XX/XX/2009" is NOT microplane, nor is it even close to the original, although it is worn out and aged. Blades like these don't actually cut enough to tear your bones or your knuckles, but rather crumble them. I have ten times more sharpness now than I did back then The year is Old rasps are much less likely to cause hospitalization, but are much more likely to result in trips to the ER. A patent number for the new item does not appear on the handle, and it does not read "microplane". As far as I know, no items on Amazon will be shipped by Microplane brand at the moment, but it sure as hell ain't this one. I don't see anything interesting.

The product is a lower quality version of the past version (1/5)
This is the first time I have ordered one and my old one has gotten dull, so I ordered this one Even though it is still the same brand, the handle of the new one is hard, cheap plastic as opposed to the soft rubber of the previous model. A second problem is that the new one lacks a rubber grip at the bottom that will prevent it from slipping on a cutting board. A sheath was missing from it as well. I am sending this back since both the rubber bottom and sheath are listed in the feature details. There is a chance that this is a counterfeit microplane.

I don't like the design (1/5)
Grate garlic is fine if all you want to do is grate it. You are in luck if you wish to zest a lemon or lime. As a result of the dull grate in the middle, you get little zest for your fruit, but if you run it over the edge and dig into the pith, you get some. The curled-up hairs are what make it look so attractive All the grated stuff gets stuck over the edges, so you have to keep running your fingers along them to remove it. As the edges are sharp as well, you'll cut your finger if you're not careful. I learned this from tonight's experience. It's been a few years since my old zester cracked so I had to replace it. The reason I bought this one was because it was Amazon Choice and it looked more sturdy, a My old one lasted a few years and I bought a new one. Putting this in the trash is a good idea.

The materials are inferior and the operation is challenging (1/5)
I don't understand why Microplane is so Taking it apart even to clean out the inside will easily cause a cut on your finger, the inside edges are sharp and will easily cause you to slice your finger, and the teeth on the side of the grating are recessed resulting in less effective and more difficult grating. Replaced a Microplane I had in the past and this is substantially inferior to my old Microplane. THIS IS NOT A GOOD ITEM TO BUY. You may want to upgrade. This grater is what you've been missing. I promise, if you've worked with a similar grater before, you will be dissatisfied.

That is all there is to it! Despite the price tag, I have never understood why anyone would purchase I've got a box grater for zesting citrus, so why would I store another single piece of grating equipment Can you tell me what the purpose of the utensil is? Therefore, when I had to make a recipe that called for zest in terms of 1/2 a cup, and knowing how long it takes me to grate up 1 Tb on my box grater, I decided to give it a try (5/5)
It was amazing and boy am I glad I did it! It would be like comparing a golf cart to a Ferrari to compare a box grater to this! It won't even take pressure to use this as it is highly sharp. Simply rake it over the surface of a lemon, orange, lime, or grapefruit, and it will remove small and fine When your zest needs to be finer, adding a few more pulses to the food processor will make the job easier. For spices, I use a small processor that I purchased specifically for that purpose. Adding a couple Tb of the sugar called for in the recipe prevented the zest from sticking to the blades of the food processor since the recipe was sweet. Excellent. I'm very happy with the results. The cutters on this puppy are super sharp, and to avoid injuries to your fingers, it comes with an additional guard to store it in your gadget draw in order to protect them. Cleanup is a breeze if you keep an old, sanitized toothbrush nearby. It happened as I had a quarter of a lemon left over for juice, and as I do so often, I thought, If I had zested those lemons first, before cutting them, I would have appreciated However, I proceeded to squeeze the pitiful quarter with the zester, not wanting to let it go to waste. It worked like magic with the microplane! If you have a box grater, try doing that. In a ziplock baggie, I managed to store the zested lemon in, which I later used. Honestly, I don't know what I've done for the last 50 years of cooking without this device. The result is that I have wasted a lot of time and have skinned my knuckles.
