Amazing zester or murder weapon?
I love making key lime pie, which isn't a very difficult dessert to make, however the time it took to zest all those key limes made the task fairly...painful. This product cut the zesting time in half. It's extremely sharp, easy to use, and comes in a bunch of colors (I have a thing for green kitchen appliances). My only caution for chefs considering this product: watch your knuckles! This product could inflict some major torture upon any living creature, so really pay attention to what you're zesting

Best zester ever
I bought this zester about a year ago, after it being recommended in the store. I've since raved to several friends about how great it is. Its sharp, but its safe since the sharp part is one-directional. Its also incredibly easy to clean. I'd recommend this to anyone who intends to zest lemons or grate Parmesan cheese

The best at doing what it does
This is hands down the best grater I have ever used. I use it primarily to zest lemons and oranges, but it also sees fairly regular use as a cheese grater. Grating is quick and easy and works without a ton of pressure against the grating surface.

A quick word of warning: this thing is crazy sharp. It can and will take chunks out of you if you don't treat it with respect. Start grating with light pressure and only increase as necessary and you shouldn't have any issues

The Standard.
A must have, versatile zester/grater. The standard in the professional kitchen, microplane does it how it should be done. From zesting citrus to grating nutmeg and cinnamon sticks and back again without dulling or failing. Parmesan, mozzerella, provolone, cheddar... If it can be grated, zested, or turned into fine shavings, microplane can do it.

Do yourself a favor and get the one with a handle ;

Great product and excellent price
I can't praise this Microplane zester grater enough! I've owned mine for well over a year now and it is an excellent product: super sharp, very easy to clean, does not take a lot of space, and....well...yes, it even looks cool.
The hole in the handle lets you hang it on a hook, which is very convenient if you don't have lots of counter/drawers space like me.
It works great with any kind of citrus, but I also use it to grate parmigiano cheese. I definetly recommend it. Microplane rocks

Love it!
I was so happy to finally buy one of these as I have never owned a zester/grater before. It works so well and I love that it comes with a protective cover.

Wow!
This is a fantastic zester. I purchased this for a Mother's Day feast I was having and I used it for my lemons but also for my fresh nutmeg! It feels great in your hand, the weight of the zester is just right and the cover is really nice. Great tool

Soft Handle!
I've been stuck on microplane graters since I've been cooking. The small area allows you a lot of flexibility to zest citrus or hard cheese. Since my toddler became addicted to
parmesan, replacing my original planer with this soft handle has helped tremendously. Although the size of the planer makes for easy storage, it can clip your skin off fairly easily, so I would suggest you keep it covered during storage.

Excellent quality
Very sharp and gets the job done swiftly and well. Easy to work with. I prefer to hand wash and dry it for fear it may rust. I may be being just overly cautious, I don't know. Easy to clean with a brush at your kitchen sink. Highly recommend.

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.

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: The plastic cover is a safety feature. It will keep the edges sharp and keep you from raking your knuckles across the surface of the plane if your equipment drawer is a bit untidy. Ii suggest your micro-plane be completely dry before easing the cover in place to minimize any chance of rust or bacterial growth.
