  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Grater Just what you would expect from W-S. It's seriously sharp, and I like the plastic 'container' that you can attach to catch the product as you grate it. It turns around for storage and keeps the sharp grates concealed. Love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Tool Where has it been all of my life. Smooth grating, and the 'catch' basket is brilliant.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for Zest! I'm a huge fan of Microplanes and have two, a fine and a coarse, that I've used for years. But it was always frustrating doing citrus zest - the fine just wasn't fine enough and much of the zest got wasted sticking to the grating surface. I just used this very fine grater for the first time making a lemon ricotta pound cake, and cannot get over how much fine zest this little device produced from one small lemon. Be still my heart - this is one fabulous and essential tool for anyone who uses citrus zest in their cooking. I'm telling all my foodie friends to get one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product I purchased this as a Fine Grater with a paddle and used it to zest a lime. It was so much easier to do as the paddle collected all the zest. I was done in no time! Great product. I will probably buy some more Paddle Graters as this one works so well. It is well worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where have you been all my life?! I am an advanced cook, but I distain a lot of gadgets. A simple kitchen is for me. My zester broke and I bought this on as a replacement. WOW! Microplaners! This little thing works and works well. I add lemon zest to all sorts of things now and it clean up is easy. The little plastic case keeps the zester from being damaged in the drawer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sturdy and grate easily I purchase 3 of the graters. Love how easy they are to hold without slipping. The cover has measurement lines therefore I do not have to pull out a measuring cup. They were larger than expected. Love them!!!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality I bought two types of these and they get the job done but feel poor quality. The rubber or plastic is awful. I initially thought the measuring piece would be more accurate but cheese seems to pack in it. I definitely don't like this purchase.
