Microplane Premium Classic Zester Graters
A versatile must-have tool for the kitchen!
This tool is normally used to grate citrus for perfect lemon, lime, and orange zests or to create pillowy mounds of parmesan cheese. However, it is also a great tool for grating spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, and even chilies into fresh ground powders. If your dish requires fresh grated ginger or garlic, this tool will do that job as well. Customers have let us know that they even use this tool to remove burnt edges from cookies and bread. What will you use it for?
What is the difference between Original Classic and Premium Classic?
The Premium Classic Zester Grater by Microplane provides a soft touch handle, instead of hard plastic. In addition this line provides a choice of handle colors. You can expect the same grating or zesting experience with either tool.
Why is Sharper Better?
- Food is grated or zested without ripping or tearing which improves the look of the final dish
- Food is grated or zested without bruising which improves flavor and aroma
- Less pressure is required while grating - making the task faster and more efficient
What makes Microplane so sharp?
Do Chef's use Microplane?
- The Microplane is the standard for sharp, efficient grating and zesting in both home and professional kitchens - just ask any chef if they use a Microplane! Dining out anywhere will usually lead to a Microplane sighting.
Photo-etching and surgical grade stainless steel
Microplane began using this signature technology in the 1990's. Most tools use stamped or cut metal. Photo-etching creates a much finer point, which means your Microplane digs in and performs better.
Made in USA blades
The photo-etching process takes place in Russellville, Arkansas; the grating blades for zesters are all made in USA.

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!
Highly recommended. A life changer for anyone who wants to add health to their diet.
Easily make yourself garlic mash, ginger mash, nutmeg powder, lemon zest and more.
+ Easily turns garlic and ginger to mash, or make yourself lemon zest.

+ about 1ft long, good enough space to grind
+ can be placed horizontally on plate/bowl edges
+ beautiful colors and design
+ great price
- Very sharp micro blades, be careful not to reach with your fingers against the blades
(remember it can easily turn ginger to mash)
- Cleaning - it's the main drawback, but it's worth the results, turning any food to mash or zest.
Cleaning is about 3-4 minutes, blades' back side allows safer access, it's bit narrow though, also, you gotta carefully pull fibers caught from the front side of micro blades'. do not use a brush because the brush strings will catch in the blades.
Overall: highly recommended, quality product.
The narrow profile, with rounded edges, allows for fast and precise work
Sharp, but relatively safe. I wouldn't necessarily
Requires minimal effort/pressure
Fine, consistent zesting
A little bit difficult to reach the inner corners to clean it completely, but a brush should help with that.
I've used it on everything from key limes and lemons, to hazelnuts and parmesan cheese, and it works perfectly. When you're zesting, you're able to easily get the zest without going too deep and peeling off the bitter rind. On other zesters, it's hard to control the depth. With the open back end, it's also easy to get to your zest, and to clean.
I'm very happy with the Microplane zesters.
I'm so happy with the product.
