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.
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I see that there is a newer version of this tool with a shorter and wider rasp area.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.
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.
