OXOs lemon zester is two tools in one.
Double-duty stainless steel head allows you to zest and create garnishes.
Its soft handle nestles comfortably in your palm and is designed to prevent it from spinning in your hand.
OXO began with a simple question. Why do ordinary kitchen tools hurt your hands? OXO set out to create a line of kitchen tools that would be comfortable to hold and easy to use. Today OXO offers more than 500 ergonomic products with pressure-absorbing, comfort-grip handles.
Perfect for zesting citrus (I've even used this in a pinch for Parmesan cheese!). The only downside is that the handle is a little bit awkward for me to use (too fat or something), but for the price it's great
This is really a great little tool. I have always had to settle for either grated citrus peel or hand-slivered peel. This is MUCH nicer and faster! And the price is right. I, too, would like the handle to be a little different shape. I like the ""fatness"", but it could be a little longer to improve leverage and control. A nice addition might be a cover or guard for the cutting head. Nothing wrecks a sharp edge like being knocked around in a drawer, and this cannot be sharpened; but I do love it, and it would be a great gift to give or receive
