Microplane Zester Grater: A Must-Have Kitchen Essential

If you've spent any amount of time in the kitchen, you've probably realized the importance of having a decent tool to grate cheese or zest rinds for better accuracy of cooking and baking, whether it's a savory or sweet creation. Our collection of hand-held zesters and graters at Williams Sonoma are of the highest quality to ensure a fuss-free, non-disruptive cooking experience.

Microplane Zester Grater Uses

A renowned brand name for high-quality kitchen solutions, Microplane graters, zesters and cooking gadgets are household favorites for home chefs and culinary novices alike. Almost interchangeable, both zesters and graters can be used for the same tasks, save for some minor differences in coarseness levels. Here's a breakdown of these handy tools and their usefulness in the kitchen:

Zesters

Ideal for peeling and cutting of citrus rinds such as lemons, limes and oranges, a hand-held zester is a great tool to have for when a recipe calls for a specific zested ingredient, especially in baking. The razor-sharp teeth can also cut through hard cheeses, as well as garlic and ginger. Make sure you have a cutting board or mixing bowl at the ready to capture your zested goodness.

Graters

Not just for cheese, graters can cut through the hardest of food surfaces, from carrots to ginger root and even chocolate. Our hand-held graters come in different levels of razor coarseness, cutting through hard cheeses like Parmesan, to semi-soft cheeses such as mozzarella.

Our Microplane Elite Rasp Grater comes with a protective cover for when not in use that also serves double duty. While using, simply attach the cover to the back of the tool to capture and instantly measure your grated ingredient.

Form Follows Function

Each of these pieces comes with an ergonomically-efficient handle for a comfortable grip and relief of tired wrists, as well as being dishwasher-safe for easy cleanup and care. We've also got a box grater boasting five different ultra-sharp blades to cover cheese, citrus, chocolate and vegetable grating. Its comfort-grip handle and non-slip base provide a sturdy surface while you work.
