Not that the zester I own doesn’t function adequately (using the term adequately really loosely). My cheapo zester works great if you don’t mind giving your arm an intense work out and having chunks mixed in with your fine zest.
The pink handled Microplane was practically screaming out to me. “Take me home, please take me home!”
So I heeded the call and purchased it. And am I ever glad I did. I love, love, love this thing.
Not only is it pink (which is of course a strong selling point for me) it does a fantastic job. I zested an orange with it this weekend in no time at all and it was so fun to use.
You can find this great kitchen accessory here, the original Microplane, made of surgical grade stainless steel and dishwasher safe (another great selling point for me!).
