How To Video: Using a Grater/Zester

Post by Paula Jahn and Olivia Martino, Registered Dietitians and Co-owners of Nourish Northwest


We are in favor of keeping a clutter-free kitchen. Clunky appliances with only one purpose are not welcome in our cupboards. The Microplane grater/zester is an essential kitchen tool with many purposes. We use it almost every time we cook. It’s easy to clean and leaves no waste.

This multi-tasking wonder can:

  • Zest citrus
  • Shred hard cheese such as Parmesan, Asiago or Romano
  • Grate fresh or frozen ginger (no need to peel!)
  • Finely “mince” garlic
  • Shave chocolate
  • Grate spices such as fresh nutmeg
