Poor qualityExcept for what I considered a hard to store size (long blade and large handle), I was satisfied with this item until yesterday. I noticed as I was trying to obtain some orange zest that it wasn't producing any. Upon inspection, it appeared that the little raised knife-edge "bumps" on the top of the blade were no longer raised, but lying almost completely flat. The only area on the blade that I could get to produce orange zest was the first inch or two off the handle (an unused area on the blade). So, I was grating the orange with those first couple inches of the blade, using enough pressure to obtain zest and not pith, when suddenly the blade bends right at the handle, nearly breaking completely off. Considering that I've only used this zester 8-10 times over the past 2 years, have always hand washed it and stored it in a drawer with blade cover in place, this is an unacceptable lack of quality for this tool.

A Time-Saving Tool in the KitchenI am frankly just learning to use this tool, and so far it has been very good. Since we use a lot of ginger, I use it mainly to grate fresh ginger, but it also works extremely well in grating lemon and lime rind. I have very arthritic hands which cramp easily, so I especially appreciate the ease with which I can grate these foods. I also like the fact that it has a protective sheath. The only drawback is that the grated product must be guided (usually with my finger) into the prep bowl because it clings to the back of the plane.
