Great! I bought one for myself awhile back and I liked it so much that I gave one to my daughter who’s learning to be a chef!
It’s wonderful! The size is so much handier than a big countertop grater. The handle is very comfortable and the storage protector is nice to have too!

Very happy with this purchase. We keep ours on the magnetic knife rack so it's within easy reach, and find ourselves using it quite often to zest lemons.

I found it very inefficient, just makes mush of shallots and won't zest citrus. Really disappointed in it.

Like the idea of a soft handle. Christmas gift.
Inez W on Apr 16, 2019
I have a wider grater from Oxo that's really good, but I find the width unwieldy. Hoping this smaller profile will work better, particularly for zesting the tops of lemons/limes.
ROBYNE C on Apr 14, 2019
I have one and wanted my daughter to enjoy using it as well.

Purchased for my daughter. I have one and luv, luv,luv it. Use it practically every day for grating something - parm, zests, garlic or ginger. I like the soft handle, easier to hold than metal ones.

Good reviews and need to replace old zester.

AMY F on Dec 14, 2018
Any good cook knows you can't live without a zester! And the microplane zester is the very best! I love to give this to friends and/or family as it's often not something they have, but soon find that they love.

Diana C on May 13, 2019
Do these zesters come with a hard plastic cover to protect the blade?
A shopper on Dec 3, 2012
BEST ANSWER: This particular zester does come with an opaque plastic cover to protect knuckles and fingers when stored away in a drawer.
OK! So now that we have different reviews and Q&A's that have conflicting facts/answers about a cover for the blade: Does it, or does it not have one
A shopper on Jul 25, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This grater comes with a disposable hard plastic cover when you purchase it.
The last time it said it came with a plastic cover was back in 2013. It is now July 2015. Can you please confirm this comes with a plastic protective storage cover?
L G on Jul 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Mine came with the cover, which I appreciate so I don't grate any fingers getting other things out of the utensil drawer! Brought it last June-July. And do love it; makes grating lemon zest and any cheese so easy.
is this dishwasher safe?
A shopper on Jan 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't know if it is considered "dishwasher safe," but I have run mine through the dishwasher many times and it is still working well. This is an amazing kitchen tool.
Where is this manufactured???
A shopper on Feb 24, 2012
BEST ANSWER: With razor-sharp edges and comfortable grips, grater creates flakes of hard cheese, chocolate and zest. Top salads and pastas with Parmesan Reggiano or add natural flavors to lemon crème brûlée or vinaigrette. Stainless steel plane grates fine, lacy wisps from even the hardest cheeses. Soft-touch handle eases fatigue.

This item is made in the USA, and then assembled in Mexico and it is held to the highest standards of quality and safety.
I purchased mine before they came with the plastic case. Can I buy a case now?
Suzanne H on Jul 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We don't sell the case separately, but you may try contacting Microplane directly.
Does this have the protective end piece so it won't cut into the board when using?
A shopper on Apr 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Not sure what you mean by 'end piece' exactly, but it has a plastic cover to put on it when not in use. I've never had any issue with it cutting into the board? I love my grater, highly recommend.
Does the cover snap on over the the front only or fit over the whole item like the sheath on a sword?
A shopper on Mar 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's "U" shaped, so that it covers the front then wraps around each side to the back. Not exactly like the sheath of a sword, but protects the front and sides completely and the back is partially covered.
I love my zester but I am sorry to say I do not know what the little clear plastic thing that fits over the blade is used for? Sorry I would really like to know. (not the cover)
Ruth A on Jun 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I think it's to protect both the zester and your fingers when it's stored in a utensil drawer. I was not sure at first but after using it and seeing how sharp the zesting area is it could really hurt a finger or knuckle if you run up against it in a drawer.
Why are the orange and white only $10?
Kathryn L on Jul 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They're being discontinued.
is this model 40020?
linda e on Jan 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. The model number on all of these colors starts with 46.
