    A great zester that is perfect for lemons and oranges and is a great quality. Long sturdy blade and perfect easy grip handle makes food prep and breeze.

    Great zester! I make a lot of lemon bars and this has made my life much easier! Really sturdy, you dont feel like you are going to break it when you use it! Great buy.

    from Sugar Rush Posted on

    I use this almost daily when I’m making breakfast at home. I personally find it more perfect for a small amount of cheese rather than zest but it works beautifully for both!

    Posted on

    I got this for grating parmesean cheese , garlic and also for zesting lemons. It works wonders for all of these purposes. The blade is great and I am sure I will find many more uses.

    Great packaging. Won't scratch the inside of your drawers.

    This zester is easy to use. We use daily for zesting citrus in our baked goods. Cleans up easily and much less storage space than using an upright cheese grater. We are happy we made the purchase. Great price too!

    from lisa@flour-and-oats.com Posted on

    This zester is better made than the price would indicate. The blade is firmly set into the handle, which is comfortable to hold, and is strong enough so you can set the zester across a bowl or pan. It makes perfect little shreds of citrus peel without the bitter pith, and works equally well to make beautiful curls of parmigiano reggiano. Lastly, it withstands the heat of the dishwasher (top rack). I highly recommend this zester, as well as the fine blade one, which is perfect for grating nutmeg or garlic.

    The 13" Soft Grip Grater with Zester Blade has a comfortable grip and the blade is sturdy and sharp. The box graters make a mess and take up less room than this handheld zester.

    Posted on

    Very sharp and takes up far less space in the dishwasher compared to a four sided grater which is what I used to use to zest lemons before getting this zester. The zester allows great control over how deep into the rind you go.

    Posted on

    sometimes its good to give other companies a chance, I was buying the expensive microplanes only to realize that this product does the same work for less money

    Posted on

    I had been using a knife before to get the zest off lemons and limes, this was a lifesaver and works like a charm, I suggest it to anyone looking for a zester

    Posted on

    These zesters are great to use. The handle grip makes for less fatigue in use. They meet our needs very well and will last a long time.

    from Whitehall School District Posted on

    The handles on the microplane zesters really make the task easy to do.

    Nice zester for the price! It's a simple tool but adds much flavor to your dishes. It is easy to clean and very durable. We would buy again!

    from The Grumpy Monk Posted on

    this is the best best best zester i have ever owned in restaurant and home. i purchased one for the business but i think i will buy one for the house too

    Posted on

    These are great for the price. We don't do tons of zesting or fine grating and realized we don't have to buy the expensive Microplane.

    Posted on

    Super super sharp, it takes almost no effort to zest with this guy! I zested 10 lemons with this for lemon bars, easy as pie. Love this guy. The blades seem to be holding up well, but I always store it in the plastic shield it came with to protect it.

    from Cook With Max Posted on

    Great zester, we use it a lot at our small bakery. Holds up to constant use and cleans up easily. Can't find one for this price anywhere!

    Posted on

    This is an excellent zester. The slats are wide and cut into rind well. do not mistake this for a microplane, the grates are far to wide to serve that purpose, if you are looking for a finer shred of rinds or garlic.

    Posted on

    Our kitchen staff enjoys using this zester/grater blade because it's light and easy to hold for long periods of zesting. It has held up well through regular use.

    from Agave Naples Posted on

    This is so much longer than I expected! It’s a bit excessive, but easy enough to manage. I’m not a professional chef, just a home baker, so that’s just my opinion. It’s durable and has a good weight to it. Best of all, it’s dishwasher safe (I HATE doing dishes by hand).

    from j4jcline Posted on

    I have used better graters in my life but this one still gets the job done and I am definitely a fan of the nice handle

    Posted on

    This is a good zester. It is easy to use and creates quite a bit of useful zest. I especially zest oranges for glazes and frostings.

    Posted on

    I purchased this grater with the Zester blade to grate ginger, Lemons/limes, chocolate, and for certain cheeses. This has performed admirably for the ones I have tried so far. The handle feels a bit light but other than that I really don't find any downfalls. This is half to a third of the price for a similar model in other stores so its a bargain. For cleaning, i would advise to wash it right after using so whatever you grated doesn't dry and stick to the blades. Using a toothbrush or small brush makes cleaning this very easy for stubborn items.

    Posted on

    I always wanted a zester plane, and now i got one! it is such a breeze to zest a orange or lemon with this zester the size is very convenient

    from sweetart Posted on

    Something that should be on hand for any chef or cook looking to bring the most flavor to their dish. The handle is appropriately sized and sits comfortably in hand. Nothing else is really special about this, what you see is what you get.

    Posted on

    Crazy sharp and effective. I've had a cheap and dull zester for so long I nearly cut myself on this: I was expecting it to work so smoothly.

    Posted on

    Quality zester, NOT a microplane zester though. It comes with a sheath which is good, because this grater will take the back of your hand off if you casually brush against it. Make sure you clean it before the grated ingredient dries, it will be MUCH easier. The handle melted very slightly the first time it was run through the washing machine, but hasn't melted at all since.

    Posted on

    For the price this is a pretty good zester but I would probably prefer the microplane brand because it has a finer zest although costs a little more.

    Posted on

    very sturdy zester for the price I will recommend over others more expensive zesters out there, easy to clean and store nice comfortable handle A+++

    from Global Specialty Posted on

    This is a great little grater! It is light weight and packs easily into my toolbox, and is perfect for grating parmesan cheese or zesting citrus fruits.

    from Thyme 2 Dine. LLC Posted on

    This is a nice, long zester/grater. The zester blade has holes that are larger than your normal zester, and will easily tear into the flesh of fruit, so you have to be careful when using it. The protective cover is helpful and makes it easy to store.

    Posted on

    Love this zester so simple to use and it works just like it should. Great for zesting various fruits and even cheese for topping food.

    from 3 Leaf Tea Posted on

    You have to expect to replace a zester that's in heavy use every 6-9 months, I think. That's about how long this thing lasts before it gets dull. But for the price, that's a great value.

    from Rise Bakery Posted on

    This zester is amazing! It's just so much easier than using a regular grater. it's one of those tools that I never thought I needed but was proven wrong. It's sharp, so I'm glad it comes with a little plastic case for storage. You wouldn't be disappointed!

    Posted on

    If you are used to the Microplane zester, you might not like this one. We found it very hard to zest lemons with this. We were getting a lot of white rather than just rind; hopefully we will get used to it soon.

    from Dream of Goodies Posted on

    This zester tool is perfect with citrus. The length is nice and the handle is attached firmly. The shape keeps it from taking up and lot of space.

    from CMV Posted on

    This zester tool is great for use with citrus fruits, chocolate, and hard cheeses. I use it almost daily for a quick zesting of parmesan cheese over pasta or salads instead of getting out my larger grater to use. It's very comfortable to hold, and easy to clean, unlike most large graters. I'm very happy with it.

    13" Soft Grip Grater with Zester Blade

    Great little zester to have around to be able to zest up your oranges and your lemons for your pies it comes with a case for the out for the outside and easily cleaned.

    from Penelopes Lil Cafe Posted on

    This zester was not what I expected but I'm partly to blame. It's somewhat hard to handle and the zest are somewhat big. If I had read the description in full I would have known. But it's good anyway

    Posted on

    This is a great zester and has been easy to use. It works great and is very easy to clean and I would recommend it

    Posted on

    This grater is well made and I can't recommend this product enough, we use them to grate all kinds of items and should be a staple in everyone's kitchen

    Posted on

    My stepdad bought one of these and I used it to zest a lemon. This thing is a game-changer! I normally use a fine cheese grater, but never again!! Anyone making pies or sweets with fresh zest needs to order one of these zesters! Amazing!

    Posted on

    Great economical zester, i use a lot of zest for my baking and home made cleaning products. I paid triple the price for a top name brand and this one works just as well,

    Posted on

    This is by far the best way to zest citrus. I still prefer other methods for grating other food items, but I can not be without this item for zesting. It creates a nice clean zest without effort and without extracting too much of the liquid inside the peel.

    Posted on

    No kitchen should be without the 13" Soft Grip Grater with Zester Blade! This is probably my most valuable kitchen tool! I use for grating citrus zests for my cooking and baking. Additionally, great for garlic as well. Nice product, great value!

    Posted on

    Great little zester. The grip is comfortable to hold. The zest from this is very fine, the clean up is simple, and it comes with a blade cover for storage.

    from Kendal's Bees Posted on

    works great we always buy these over microplane, they work just as good for half the price. simple no brainer if you ask me. only thing is we have gotten two different coarse zesters

    from mbg Posted on

    I've always used the thin side of a cheese grater to zest a lemon and what a mess! This is so easy to use... So easy to clean! I love it

    Posted on

    I've only used this once, but I wasn't especially happy with the result. Everything stuck to it and I didn't get much from a large orange. I'm not throwing in the towel yet though, I'll give it a second try, just bought a different blade too.

    Posted on

    Works as well as a microplane, but cheaper. I like the included cover; make sure you save it. This makes for a pile of fluffy parmesan shavings, or zest, or chocolate...

    Posted on

    I really prefer this vertical type of cheese grater. The handle is sturdy and makes grating the cheese so much easier then with a shorter, wide-type grater. The real bonus is being able to zest citrus fruits. This simple kitchen tool can really help you improve your culinary skills by adding fresh Parmesan to pasta dishes or lemon zest to marinades. Great Product!!

    Posted on

    The grating holes are a bit big and the grater could be sharper -- sometimes citrus catches on the grater and you need to tug. I've grated a knuckle or two on this. Its better for bigger objects like cheese or chocolate.

    Posted on

    This product is amazing. I use it all the time to add some zest to my cooking. Brings out the flavors in my own dish.

    Posted on

    This grater is so nice. You can grate or zest to your heart's content. The soft grip handle is convenient and comfortable. Overall great product.

    from Oak Hill Bulk Foods, Inc. Posted on

    Once I got the hang of using this zester (I was previously using the small setting on a cheese grater), I really learned to like it. Zesting is much faster and more effective with this tool. It also has a handy storage case to conceal the blade.

    from Enticing Icing LLC Posted on

    We use these in our bar to zest citrus, nutmeg and other garnishes. We use a protective cover to keep it safe when not in use and wash it regularly and it has held up well.

    Posted on

    this soft grip grater really makes the task at hand easy peazy. Well designed easy to use and holds up well. Very good quality. We do recommend this.

    Posted on

    The handle on these are fantastic. The length of the grater and zester blade makes zesting lemons and lime extremely easy. Highly recommend this product.

    from Plan 9 Alehouse Posted on

    The 13" Soft Grip Grater with Zester Blade is working out great for me. It grates lemons and oranges very well. I like that the blade comes with a cover. Very convenient for storage.

    This 13" Soft Grip Grater with Zester Blade is great! not pictured in any of the reviews is the blade cover, which simply clips on the outside of the business end. the blade protector is a finger saver in the utility drawer.

    from Furniture Forager Posted on

    Easy to use and the perfect size. These were a great addition to our cooking stations for our kids culinary arts program. Exception value and Quick delivery!

    from Amy Barnes Posted on

    This zester has been great for home use. It fits relatively well in my hand. The shaving are quite large. I would recommend this product.

    Posted on

    Handy little zester.

    I ordered a bunch of these because they were a great price. Now I know why. I needed these to zest a number a lemons and these are extremely difficult to use and don't produce the desired consistency for the lemon zest.

    This is perfect for shaving my Parmesan cheese right over my cooking and plating! The comfortable grip I thoroughly enjoy as the main quality. I now have to order one for my prep kitchen.

    from Events By Jenn Posted on

    These graters are fantastic! We have several different sizes and they are all used daily. The graters with the fine blades are perfect for grating things like whole nutmeg (so much easier than old fashioned nutmeg graters!) and zest, while this one that has a slightly bigger grating surface can also be used for zest, chocolate, nuts or the occasional garlic clove. Honestly they have thousands of uses, we use ours many times a day

    from Vincent's restaurant Posted on

    Was looking for a newer and easier way to zest. This unit holds up well and the soft hand helps keep it stable while in use.

    Posted on

    I purchased this to zest with for making healthy dressings for salads and marinades for meats, to put into baked goods and glazes. I look forward to all the goodies I am planning to make for my family

    Posted on

    Great quality zester. It's nice to keep in mind that this may also be used for large spices like nutmeg. Especially during the holidays. I have two myself!

    from Just Cater LLC Posted on

    This zester works well. I should have gotten the finer one because this one makes the pieces a little larger than I like but that is my mistake in,ordering not a product flaw. It is sharp and cuts well.

    from Red River Inn Posted on

    So far we are really happy with the 13" Soft Grip Grater with Zester Blade and it works well for our needs. We would buy again.

    Posted on

    This 13-inch greater is A sharp tools and I have been able to use it time and time again without it becoming dull. It has a soft grip handle and I like that it doesn't hurt my hands and it does the job like it's supposed to do great product

    Posted on

    I was looking every where for hours trying to find the best quality zester. Was looking on about 30 websites. This one has the best reviews. And has not let me down. Thank you.

    from Todd's Kitchen Posted on

    This is a fine little grater. The teeth are probably a bit large for a zester but it does the job quickly, consistently, and easily. These are just as good as the Microplane brand but for much less money. I plan to round out the set with the rest very soon.

    Posted on

    At a third of the price of the name brand zester, this one was a no-brainer- I'm purchasing it again after buying one to try- it's great quality stainless and it holds up to weekly use.

    Posted on

    It is a bit of a pain when you have to zest with vegetable peeler or shredder. The grip is nice and you get finer zest to incorporate into cake batter nicely.

    Posted on

    Used this zester for the first time today and I can't believe how fantastic it works. It puts my old one to shame. My cranberry orange muffins have never tasted so good! Zesting the orange took no time at all with the sharp blades ( watch out for those knuckles). I priced around and even the price was cheaper than the stores. Great buy!!!

    from Home use Posted on

    Not really a fan of the grate on this- it's of high quality but I guess I'm just used to a finer microplane zester. This one kind of takes the rind off in chunks which isn't what I was looking for.

    from Confections by Kristin Posted on

    So easy to use and very easy to keep clean, too. This is the best, fastest tool for zesting zillions of lemons and limes for beverages and general cooking.

    from A Food Truck in the Northwest Posted on

    This baby is sharp, careful with the finger tips or you'll have those zested in your salad as well. a great buy and it works great

    from breezy point international Posted on

    This is an awesome and fantastic absolutely great zester! Zesting citrus is now super easy and fast! I've never had one before and this one is great - try it!

    Posted on

    We use this to zest lemons, oranges and limes and sometimes garlic cloves. Works great with nice sharp blades and cleans well. Well made and doesn't feel cheap.

    from Avenue54 LLC Posted on

    Works great and feels great. IT's good for zesting and came with a decent tooth to it. Nothing spectacular but cheap. Will probably buy it again.

    from backwater Posted on

    I think that a zester is a great kitchen item- i use it very frequently, constantly zesting citrus fruits for my recipes- high quality a real bargain- I would recommend to everyone

    Posted on

    Alright, I'm going to nit-pick a bit here, but I thought this was a bit of a coarse blade to be considered a zester. Don't get me wrong, it will zest fine, but it's so sharp and the blades are fairly large, so you get to the pith of fruits very quickly and the zest is relatively large. Would be great for grating cheese and similar tasks, but I can't use it for my needs which is finely grated zest off of primarily citrus fruits. I would consider this a medium grater. That said, the build quality is great, the handle is comfortable, and the sheath that comes with it is very handy. I'm purchasing the fine blade version to use for my zesting needs as soon as I have a big enough order to place to justify the shipping cost- if you're use to a microzester or microplane, you want the fine blade and not this one.

    from The Chocolate Caper Posted on

    Today's receipes call for zest fruits, so I ordered this zester so my receipes will come out as they as supposed to be. It is so easy to use, and me being a new cook that means a lot ,and it even comes with a cover so no cut fingers when reaching for one in your drawer. It cleans nicely with hot water . Nice to keep in your baking and cooking drawer and and you will have it when you need it.

    from Rosemarie T.C. Posted on

    We just got this item in our kitchen and it's already been used a half dozen times. Seems well made with a good grip and blade.

    from Brian Gingras Posted on

    Nice zester blade, very fine for working with citrus fruits and other items that need to be zested. Goes to the pith pretty fast is my only complaint.

    from Mike's Mindful Plate Posted on

    This zester is awesome! It gets all of the skin off of a lemon, which is perfect for a lemon meringue pie! It is larger than i expected, but that just makes it easier to hold.

    from Pie Bar Posted on

    This is a very nice zester. It comes with a protective plastic cover for safety. The rounded square holes are perfect for zesting citrus fruits and make nice little curls if used for grating hard parmesan cheese.

    from Lucinda M. Posted on

    Very nicely constructed zester. Works great when making my lemon and key lime cupcakes. The zest is the perfect size and adds the extra touch to make your cupcakes wow.

    Posted on

    This is a really good zester. Whatever fruit you choose to grate this will do it. Price was great and shipping was fast. Thanks again.

    from Dons Grill Posted on

    The 13" Soft Grip Grater with zester blade works great on Lemon, Lime, and , oranges . It also fits very well in the silverware drawer.

    from PAULB Posted on

    This is a great grater to use and work with. I have found it easy to work with then the big style ones many are use to. Easy to keep clean an very durable.

    from Louie Pizzeria Posted on

    This is a great zester. The larger planes make zesting large lemons and oranges a lot faster. It's also easier to clean than microplane zesters.

    from The Cupcake Doctor Posted on

    This zester blade is very sharp, therefore I am thankful for the protective sleeve that comes with it. It works great when I need lemon or lime zest. And even though I've not grated any cheese yet, I look forward to doing so. Plus the length which I thought might be too long, actually works great. Very sturdy and does the jobs I need with a great price.

    Posted on

    This Is the best zester that I have ever used. It grates cheeses and zests lemons, etc., very easily as it is hand held and not bulky like a box grater. It is also a great space saver in the kitchen. Great product.

    Posted on

    This zester is unbelievable! It is razor sharp right out of the box and works well for adding a level of bright and fresh flavor. Great for desserts! The price and quality is unmatched.

    Posted on

    A nice zester with plenty of blade for zesting whatever you need. It also comes with a guard attachment that snaps on the blade so you can safely store this wherever.

    Posted on

    I gave this zester 3 star rating because it no microplane. If you are used to using microplane please get a microplane, you will be pretty upset if you choose to get this one instead. Do not get me wrong it is not a bad product but the blades are way too abrasive and are very sharp, sharp enough to cause harm. It also grates way to deep into the peels of fruit like oranges and what not. This would probably be a better choice for grating cheese or something that you plan on grating the entire product and not just for the zest.

    Posted on

    A very nice, quality product. I love the handle. The blade is extremely sharp and comes with a nice snap-on cover. It will work for citrus zesting, but be careful because the pith appears immediately.

    from The Ruffled Apron Posted on

    Although I was initially hesitant on the quality due to the lower price point, it turns out that this zoster is simply a great value and an overall great product! The metal construction should hold up nicely as long as it's not abused or used on any handed surfaces for anything other than zesting fruits and vegetables. Great purchase!

    Posted on

    I see these all the time at supply stores and pass them by because I have a zester I have used for years and wasn't willing to spend what specialty stores were asking. This was inexpensive and is excellent quality.

    from Miss Debs Posted on

    I use a zester to make a holiday dish, and the antique one I had gave up the ghost. I wish I would have done this much sooner. It makes the hardest part of the dish lighting fast. Using it, I no longer shy away from zest of anything. It is easy to use and easy to clean.

    Posted on

    This grater and zester blade is great! I use it to zest all my citrus for pies and garnishes. It works great and cleans easy in seconds.

    Posted on

    This is a great zester with really sharp blades. The price is half what you would pay in a kitchen store, and the quality is fantastic.

    Posted on

    Great value for the price. Handles nice and grates beautifully, making short work of zesting oranges and lemons. We have been looking around for awhile and this product fits the bill.

    from Flying Colours Posted on

    This zester is great. Just like the expensive ones at the store but this sells for a fraction of the cost and does the same or if not better job!

    Posted on

    Very high quality zester at a whole lot better price than the big box restaurant supply stores and I get them with one or two day delivery.

    from Dino Posted on

    This grater with zester blade is top quality. I have been wanting to replace my really older zester and decided to try this one and it is great quality!

    Posted on

    This is a fantastic grater. I actually messed up a recipe that required less than 'half of a lemon' zest. I kept grating/zesting because it was so fun and easy with this grater. Yes, I could have used way less zest, flavorwise. But it did do a fantastic job!

    Posted on

    Very easy to use soft grip grater. Makes perfect pieces of zest for most recipes. Also great for shaving chocolate pieces for a nice uniform look.
