Thanks for letting me know. I didn't see the $0.36 additional savings so I updated my previous post to reflect this.



I hope this is useful, I could be watching netflix Wink



You've got to decide if it's good for you but here are some other opinions out there:

General information from the Wirecutter (source [thewirecutter.com]):

The Microplane 46020 Premium Classic Zester and Grater is razor-sharp, zesting and shredding more efficiently than most other paddle or rasp graters we tested. The narrow, easy-to-maneuver plane is especially great for zesting lemons because it has holes even on the curved edges of the grater, which allow you to get in hard-to-reach spots. It will also make quick work of a hard block of cheese to blanket a pasta dish in pillowy fluff.

Bon Appetit complains about it becoming dull too easily (source [bonappetit.com])

If I want Parm to dissolve into a silky pasta sauce, I'll use the Microplane, which turns it into powder. But if I want grated cheese with some texture, show me the box grater. The Microplane also dulls and can't be sharpened, so don't go grating hard-as-wood ingredients like galangal. My one complaint is that I wish it stayed sharper longer." —Claire Saffitz, senior associate food editor

The most helpful positive review on Amazon (source [amazon.com])
Great microplane zester, very sharp. Love the little rubberized "feet" on the bottom that eliminate the possibility of its scratching the surface upon which you rest it to grate. It makes fast work of hard cheeses and zests. We love our freshly grated Asiago over home made pasta, so this little beauty is often at the table. One little flaw, however, prevents me from giving it five stars. When I used it to grate lime zest today, it accumulated on the underside of the zester, as many food items do. Never expecting a problem, I used my index finger to wipe it off into the bowl. YOWWWww! The sides of the zester, which curl around to the back, were not finished. One of them gave me a very nasty slice across the end knuckle of my index finger. The last brand of microplane zester was finished smoothly, so it never occurred to me that this might be a problem. In the future, I'll be sure to use a pastry brush or the tip of a dinner knife to dislodge the grated item. Lesson learned!

The most helpful critical review on Amazon (source [amazon.com])

This is either a knockoff or a very old model, but either way not as pictured. The microplane pictured has a rubber handle, this one is made of hard, cheap plastic and the actual grater is aluminum so is doesn't adhere to a magnetic knife block like the one I thought I was buying. Because this cheap material was used, the grates are ragged instead of sharp and shred your fingers with the slightest slip. To make matters worse, Amazon won't allow a return for the item for some reason.

Please provide 2 months, 3 months, 6 months and all time price data as well. Please also provide other sites history and SD pricing history as well (if there is).


Also, did you factor in the .36 discount at checkout? Also, do you have an exorbitant amount of spare time on your hands?


Oh, and if you can, try and do some research to let us know if it's a good product.

We've got every size and shape microplane offers. So easy to use and clean. I have no complaints on how long they stay sharp. They come sharp enough to take fingertip chunks off. They make different types for a reason, people acting like all microphones turn cheese to powder are doing it wrong. Get out of the kitchen.

We have one like this, but I bought one later that was wider and a little shorter, and I find it much easier to work with most of the things I was using it for (zesting, grating parmasan, etc)

I think the issue stems from is a combination of blades getting pushed inwards from pressing too hard along with the blade itself dulling. Nutmeg is one example that might cause both.
