From the Manufacturer

The non-stick coated stainless steel Better Zester blade makes zesting smooth and effortless.
Looking for a Better Way to Zest? Look No More, All You Need is the KitchenIQ Better Zester.

Using the Better Zester is just fun! Never before has Zesting been so effortless. The combination of the V-etched teeth and non stick coating allow the zester to skim across the surface of rough citrus smoothly while producing thin wisps of flavorful zest without grating into the bitter pith.

The Secret Behind the Magic
No More Zesty Fingers or Wondering How Much Zest You have Grated

For too long cooks have had to remove the zest from graters by running their finger across the back of the blade, who wants a citrus covered finger? The Better Zester is designed to eliminate this problem. Zest without the mess.

How much zest do you need? It’s all in the container. If the recipe calls for a tsp. of lime zest, or ½ tsp. of lemon zest. Don’t bother using a measuring spoon. The KitchenIQ Better Zester container is marked with measurements in tsp. and ml. Just what the baker asked for!


The squeegee inside the container runs along the back of the blade and removes the wet zest.
Features & Benefits of the Better Zester

V-etched Zester Blade for Zesting all types of citrus - Oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruit etc. Over 300 V-etched teeth use the shear action of their patent pending V- shapes to produce even, uniform cuts while using minimal force. The Non- stick coating allows foods to glide across the blade smoothly and makes clean up fast and easy. The Fresh Zest container holds the freshly grated zest and allows cooks to place the zest easily into their dishes,. The squeegee slides across the back of the blade removing the flavor rich moist zest from the back side of the blade. The frame of this unique Zester is formed with a slight curve allowing a smoother, more steady stoke when zesting. (Or what some call violining! Now just call it better zesting!)

Features: Patent pending V-etched Zester Blade for zesting all types of citrus, Patent pending non-stick coating for smoother zesting and easy clean up, Fresh zest storage container with measurements, Squeegee for easy zest removal, Non slip tip, Ergonomic soft touch handle, Reusable cover, and the Better Zester is Dishwasher Safe Top Rack Only.

I saw this zester being used by Sara Moulton and was so happy to see that it was available through amazon.com!
It works great, storing the zest in the little tray that easily removes. I'm one who zests several lemons, limes and oranges and then freezes the zest and this little tray makes it so easy to just drop it in one bunch onto a piece of freezer wrap.
The price is great for this zester and you'll NOT regret having bought it once you start using it...
I recommend this zester to everyone!!

I have been using a Henkels zester for years, and that works well for long strips of zest. However, I find the Henkels zester to be hard on my wrist so I bought this one on a whim. Wow! It is easy to use, requiring only light pressure. It picks up only a fine layer of zest, no pith at all. It catches the zest with no mess whatsoever. And when you remove the zest catching compartment, it pushes all the zest to one end for easy retrieval. This product is an improvement on the old fashioned style of zester and someone put some thought into its design. Definitely recommended.

Great for zest and nutmeg. Not good for cheese. I prefer the versatility of the microplane. If I could own two ( which I do), this is a good one to have. If I could only have one, I'd go with the microplane.

I am so happy with this purchase! I bought a bag of lemons and limes at Costco. I froze the zest in zip-locks and froze the juice in ice cube trays.

I would have given this five stars until the paint start coming off into my food. I've had this for one year and have not used it that much. It grates beautifully, but now it's trash after one year? What's up with that?! I'm very disappointed in the quality and won't rebuy another one that will probably start shedding in another year. Very disappointed! Please make one that doesn't have the food surface painted!

So far, I have only used this to zest lemons, but I couldn't believe how quickly and easily it did the job. I love that it catches the zest. I even threw the whole thing in the fridge for a couple of days until I needed the rest of my zest. My only complaints are that it isn't dishwasher safe, and it is a little bigger than it needs to be.

Absolutely love this. Previously the zest would fly about on the counter, but this keeps it all neatly contained. It will hold quite a bit of zest before I have to empty it. It works quite effortlessly and the squeegy makes it empty. It cleans up easily too. The only negative thing is that it can be a bit of a trick to get the plastic cover back into the groove after emptying the zest but it gets easier with practice. I would definitely recommend this, as it is the best zester I have ever used.

This zester is awesome. I had zero complaints up until about 6 months ago (and I've now had it for 2.5 years). The green coating on the front of the zester is now flaking off... and I can't decide it if is happening when I am zesting and that I'm eating the flakes or if it happens because I put it in the dishwasher. If it only flakes in the dishwasher then I really don't care but I sure don't want to be eating it! I think they could have left that coating off anyway. It seems highly unnecessary to me. If they made one like this but without the green coating, I would buy it immediately!
