Microplane Premium Classic Series Zester Grater

Product number: 26173

Featuring Microplane’s now iconic long, narrow rasp-style blade, the Premium Classic Series Zester is outstanding in its league. In fact, people go so far as to say it changed their life! Expertly crafted in stainless steel, it cuts through hard and soft foods effortlessly, earning it a 5-star reputation, a place in professional kitchens, and countless cookery show TV appearances!

Rasp-style zesting blade

Loved by cooks worldwide and instantly recognised by any Microplane fan, the long rasp-style blade has hundreds of tiny, razor-sharp etched blades that grate precisely without shredding or tearing, ensuring that the full flavour and aroma of your ingredients are released. The Premium Classic Series Zester delivers the fastest and most effective method of grating incredibly fine citrus peel or lacy wisps of even the hardest Parmesan cheese, and makes the finest gratings of ginger, garlic, spices, chocolate, truffles and nuts, perfect for topping your pasta dishes, puddings and salads.

Expertly designed

As well as the original ultra-sharp photo-etched blade that Microplane are famous for, and which sets the standard for all other zesters, the ergonomic soft-touch handle is comfortable in your hand, and a non-slip rubber foot holds it firmly to a chopping board as you work. The combination of all these things mean it’s often the choice of professional cooks, which is why we see it being used on cookery programmes so often. We took one look at it and just knew it was going to do a brilliant job – and testing only proved us right!

Easy to clean

Microplane have made sure that once its work is done, their Premium Classic Zester is really easy to clean, and although it’s dishwasher safe, the clog-resistant blade can simply be rinsed clean with running water.

Protective storage case

A clear guard helps keep the blade in tip-top condition, and allows for safe and secure storage in a utensil drawer.

Without doubt the best zester I’ve ever used and the perfect size. Comfortable to hold, razor sharp and takes just the zest and not the pith

Have used this frequently since purchasing for citrus zest and Italian hard cheeses. It has produced great results and much easier than anything I’ve used before. Really easy to clean as well. Less mess and better results.
