Best zester around
The next kitchen gadget I would like to introduce, is the Microplane. The reason I prefer this gadget above your normal grater and/or zester, is because of the very sharp blade-like teeth. These blades are designed in such a way that half the grated zest doesn't get stuck in-between the teeth of the zester. It also ensure that you only get the orange bit of the zest off, leaving the bitter white peel behind. Its easy to clean and I use it to grate anything from garlic, turmeric root and fresh ginger straight into the pan with minimum fuss. Every chef loves the Microplane.
