I have bought and compared 3 series of microplane products. They are 1. professional 2. premium 3. classic.
Here is what I found.

They are all using the same blade-made in USA but assembled in Mexico.

The designs differ. Professional is more auqare like many graters we have used from before. It is not super eye catching. The premium and classic series has that long lean body that everyone recognizes easily to be super special to microplane.

Furthermore,Premium and classic series come with plastic handles and several reviewers complain they broke if you are too forceful. The professional series are made of all stainless steel all over.

Also, the premium and the classic series differ in two things. First, at the end where it stands on the counter top, the premium comes with two tiny plastic foot, you cannot see front the pic, but they are there while the classic does not. It protects the surface of either your countertop or your mixer bowl. If you use the classic series, you might scratch the surface it comes in contact with and the classic might be easier to slip too. Second, the plastic handle is sturdier in the premium series than the classics. Other than these two, they are basically the same design.

At the end, my sturdiness ranking is 1. professional 2. premium 2. classic.
my attractiveness of its outlook ranking is 1. premium 2. classic 3. professional.
But the attractiveness is more subject to individual taste than sturdiness ranking.

My final decision is to keep the professional series made of all stainless steel for my friend who care less about the look and for me, I will stay with the premium series and its color handles. I will make sure to be super careful and not use too much force. One more note, I ordered the yellow but the yellow is not a bright yellow , it is more of a dull saturated yellow. So if you like bright lemon yellow, this is not the color for you.

I find this to be a better tool for zesting than the traditional zester. I use less effort zesting with this Microplane to remove only the rind and not get to that white pith that is very bitter. And most of the zest collects underneath the tool or falls from below. A few minor raps and the most of the collected zest fall away. When I use the traditional zesting tool, I get quite a bit of the zest and essential oil on my hands.

This Microplane is fairly easy to wash and clean. But, after washing, hold the handle and shake out the water that collects in the handle. Then place the Microplane with the handle up after washing so the water dries out from the handle.

I see that there is a newer version of this tool with a shorter and wider rasp area. The tool also includes a small and large strip zester.

PROS: Removes the zest with less effort and better control (without removing the bitter pith). Easily collects the zest without it collecting on your hands.

CONS: The rasp and handle area is not totally sealed or removable to either prevent food to collect under the handle or to allow thorough cleaning.

Microplane zesters are worth the money, period. I have had one for ten years. It zests and grates like the day I received it (it was a gift). Since then, I have bought a few for friends, and have always received compliments.

Previous to my Microplane zester, I just used a peeler for zesting citrus or or grating nutmeg. I thought it was adequate. It was a bit tedious and hazardous, but I zested so infrequently, it didn't seem like a big deal.

After the zester, I used it to add zesting to a lot of foods I make everyday: salads, pancakes, crepes, lemonade, tapenade, relishes, roasted meats and desserts. The zesting dresses up the flavor in even simple desserts like apple crisp. It is simple to clean up: usually a hot water rinse will do it.

This zester comes in such a cheerful color. The handle is comfortable and sturdy. It is dishwasher safe, although I usually just wash by hand, as it is so simple.

I have been buying Microplane graters for several years now and never been disappointed. I've tried graters by many other manufacturers, and none, that I've found come close. I can't understand why no other manufacturer has tried to copy Microplane. When you first use a Microplane grater, you then immediately gather your other manufacturers graters and throw them out! WARNING The Microplane graters work just as well on your fingers as they do on any other foods.

First off, and most importantly, the zester/grater is unbelievably good with hard cheeses, such as reggiano parmesan. The grater shreds the cheese to a fine consistency unmanageable by other tools. Zest created by the grater is perfect, and of an even texture. The grater is very comfortable to hold, and the grip works well, even for left handers. It is, however, important to note that the grater can be difficult to clean (especially of zest) and that it is extremely sharp, with no safety features except for the one between your ears.

Our previous zester had a plastic handle and the actual grater section was framed in plastic. After a couple of uses on lemons and limes, it broke. The Microplane cost twice as much as our old one, but is a thousand time more durable. The handle is comfortable and the entire grating section is metal. There's almost a rugged feel to this zester which screams quality. I would say that we'll buy this again, but I don't think we'll need to.
