My New Favorite Kitchen Tool

A Microplane grater. I regularly add grated parmesan cheese to all sorts of dishes, so how have I lived so long without getting one of these things? It churns out the wispiest snow-like shavings that melt immediately into hot pasta. Only about an inch wide, it's perfect for quick grating tasks, and not bad for zesting lemons, either.

A new addition to my list of Good Kitchen Equipment.

Ooo, I love those things. I end up using mine more for cheese than zesting anything.

I love these things too! I have about 5 of them - I even have a mini one for grating fresh nutmeg! I don't know what I ever did without them.
