Great tool for getting fresh citrus essence into your recipes without a noticeable texture. I have used it on lemons, limes, and oranges. The sharp micro blades glide smoothly over the fruit, removing only the thinnest, outermost layer of the skin where the best flavor is, while leaving behind the deeper, more bitter part of the rind. I love it as a zester!
When grating hard cheeses like Parmesan, It yields a fine, soft, fluffy mound of cheese that melts quickly onto hot foods. For this reason, I sometimes prefer a coarser grater for cheese, though this will get the job done, and might be preferred in some situations.
I like that it comes in a fun choice of colors. I started with the yellow one for myself and have since gotten the green to give as a gift. The protective storage sleeve is a huge plus. Just give it a gentle squeeze, and the zester slides right in, protecting the delicate blades and you!
I have noticed with use that the metal parts on the handle have tarnished slightly like silver might, but it is hardly noticeable, and certainly not a deal breaker for me. Though I have put it in the dishwasher a few times, I usually just give it quick, stout spray with hot water to clean it.
When I decided to remove the sticker that was on the sleeve, it did not remove cleanly, so that will require a little work now. In retrospect, I probably would just leave that on.
A great product overall, and I highly recommend it for any well-equipped kitchen!
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.
