As much as I love to spend time in the kitchen, I am always aware when a tool is missing from my arsenal. For years, I was missing a zester. As a result, I would buy grated lemon and lime zests that were dry and very strong in flavor. This created citrusy and sometimes very bitter dishes.
There were times when I tried to mince the dark part of the peels with a knife, but I could never mince fine enough. I knew a zester was one thing that I needed.
The Best Premium Zester Grater gave me what I was looking for. This tool is incredibly handy. As soon as it arrived, I put it to use, making a strawberry lemon cheesecake. This time, no bitterness was found in the dessert. The fresh lemon zest had the sweet citrus flavor that my desserts had been sorely lacking. I have yet to try it on a block of parmesan, but the next time I make spaghetti, you can be assured I will use it once again.
It is dishwasher friendly, which is a huge boon for me. I do not relish the thought of washing this thing by hand. The blade has not loosened in the handle whatsoever, so I know it is well crafted. Recommended for all cooks and bakers.
Full disclosure: I was sent this product free of charge in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
