Kitchen Essential: Microplane Zester



I love the Microplane zester. It is an absolute must-have for any kitchen. It is perfect for zesting citrus fruit, finely grating cheeses, freshly grating a bit of spices like nutmeg, and so much more.


The blades stay sharp for a long time due to the unique manufacturing process and are the ideal depth for zesting just the flavorful citrus skin and none of the bitter white pith underneath. I add a little lemon zest to many dishes to lighten them up with a touch of lively acidity. Sautéed vegetables, soups, salads, cream sauces, even rich dairy desserts benefit from a little lemon zest to balance out richness of a dish.
