Rated 2 out of 5 by Rudi from Good at first The Microplane Paddle grater worked great when I first started using it. Over time (~ 2 years) with regular use and only hand washing the plastic edging around the grater blade started cracking and breaking off to the point that it is no longer usable because plastic falls into the food and the measuring sleeve no longer fits onto the grater.Date published: 2017-04-24Rated 5 out of 5 by supershopper 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!Date published: 2017-01-17Rated 5 out of 5 by Boomer48 from Awesome Tool Where has it been all of my life. Smooth grating, and the 'catch' basket is brilliant.Date published: 2016-11-08Rated 5 out of 5 by RJordan 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.Date published: 2015-12-06Rated 5 out of 5 by Phillyphan 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.Date published: 2015-05-01Rated 5 out of 5 by PammyG 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.Date published: 2015-02-08Rated 5 out of 5 by Natab0525 from Great grater! Very sturdy and love the plastic measuring sheath. Sharp and cleans up well.Date published: 2014-08-04Rated 5 out of 5 by Mbs720 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!!!!Date published: 2014-08-02
