Product Description

With two uses in one utensil, this tool is the ultimate for working with citrus. The head features several sharp holes for zesting lemons, oranges and more, while the channel knife lets you create elegant garnishes and decorations with little effort. And when you're through, its large, oversize handle opening makes hanging easy. The Good Grips line features durable, nonslip flexible handles on every product. Ergonomically designed to fit the palm comfortably and softly, the pressure-absorbing processed rubber handle puts less tension on the hands, while providing an outstanding grip. Made from the same material as dishwasher gaskets are constructed of, the handles are slip-proof, wet or dry, as well as dishwasher-safe. Good Grips products are moderately priced and have won the Tylenol/Arthritis Foundation Design Award. --Laurie Notaro

I am a quadriplegic/tetraplegic (C5-6 for any of you who care). I have only about 1/3 use of my hands and about 1/2 use of my arms, but I can use this zester--not with great ease, but I can use it! I cannot use any other zester I have tried.
My mother has mild arthritis and she likes my Oxo tools better than her own (even the ones she's grown to love over the years).
The zesting blades are sharp and at the perfect angle. You get perfect zest with little effort. And you get NO pith (bitter white part).
As with almost all Oxo tools the design is excellent: it is highly ergonomic--it fits the hand and works the way it should.

This is a nice little tool, as far as making strips of citrus zest; BUT there are a lot of recipes that call for a finer zest, which is hard to get out of this zester. I've found that a microplane grater works a lot better at getting a fine zest, and lets you get at LOT more of the zest off the lemon. With the OXO Zester, you only get a few strips at a time, and it gets tricky to go back between the strips to get all the zest off. I gave the OXO three stars because I don't think it's the optimal tool for what its main function is supposed to be.

However, the way the OXO works does make it useful for other applications. I use it to make thin julienne carrot strips for salads, and I imagine it could do the same with any reasonably firm fruit or vegetable. And it is good for garnishing.

If you do a lot of zesting for recipes and such, I would go with the microplane grater. If you do more garnishing and only zest occasionally, this OXO should serve you well enough. Personally, I say buy both; they're cheap. :)

Most kitchens probably do not have a lemon zester as a routine item, but the OXO zester is a must for both casual and professional cooks. The problem with most zesters is they aren't sharp enough to properly zest only the lemon peel but instead give you white pith along with the zest. But the OXO only gives you the best of the lemon as it stainless steel blade cuts sharply and cleanly. Another excellent feature is a built in garnishing tool that allows you to cut designs into citrus fruit thus giving you two kitchen gadgets for the price of one. The zester is quite durable and goes through the dishwasher quite well too. This tool is also extremely safe for even the youngest of hands as its slip proof construction allows you to grip it easily without fear of slipping and hurting oneself. So add some zest the OXO way!

This handy and attractive zester comes with very sharp holes set at the perfect angle to make zesting rinds virtually effortless and give you more peel without pith on lemons, oranges and even the toughest of citrus skins. The built in channel knife for garnishing is a convenient addition you can use on chocolate and other foods to produce the perfect decoration every time. Its sharp blades never seem to need sharpening, and its hefty body fits comfortably in the hand, making it require less force to operate than the more traditional zesters do.
Like the rest of the products from the OXO Good Grips line, this one is a great value of superior quality, unsurpassed durability and flawless performance. Its ergonomic design and big, pressure-absorbing, outstanding non-slip grip, complete an oversized hole for easy hanging, allow you comfortable, daily, wet or dry use. Its injury-free, elegant, stylized, standard OXO shape will fit perfectly with the rest of your OXO utensils in the kitchen or in the bar.
Its easy-to-clean, simple construction and dishwasher-safe, hard-wearing materials make this a tool that you will be able to depend on for years, and its stainless-steel metal parts will permanently keep your rust worries away.
After submitting this product to over two years of normal use, mine is still just like new.

I find I have to *push* hard to get thru thick orange and lemon rinds. I have found that the microlane grater is easier and more versitile... The handle feels odd to me... and too big as a grip.

This is a wonderfully efficient zesting tool. If you find that you need a zester more than even once a year you should invest in this nifty little product. It boasts solid construction with an easy grip rubberized handle and 5 sharp holes for quick and easy zesting. Very easy to hold and twist when zesting. It even has a little channel knife if you want to do some fancy peeling. This beats the heck out of trying to zest with a cheap grater type device and is vastly superior to trying to zest with the edge of a knife. (As I did for years before I learned better) I use lemon and lime zest quite a bit more than the average person and I see no signs that this tool will dull, break, or wear out anytime soon. Highly recommended tool for any active zester. As easy to wash as a fork. Cool.

Not only is the OXO Good Grips Lemon Zester fun, easy, and comfortable to work with, it also seems to deliver more peel (without pith) than I have previously derived from other methods.
It is easy to scrape around any unwanted spot. I also like the size and shape of the zest obtained.
