As someone who loves to cook (and write about it), I often have doubles or sometimes triples of things in my kitchen. This may seem like a great thing, but take my “blender” situation. I have two blenders, yet each of them are horrible and the motor stops when you put something as hard as an ice cube into it. (Side Story: I tried to make a smoothie with kale the other day and instead of drinking it, I ended up chewing most of it — and whatever I didn’t chew was stuck in my teeth. #BlenderFail)
My grater situation is a little better. I do have one box grater and three zesters. I thought they were doing a good job until I discovered Edgeware.
With my other graters, I was used to pushing really hard or using different areas of the blade to get a good zest. The second I used the V-etched Better Zester! I could immediately feel the difference. Las night I made pineapple salsa and needed to zest a lime. Not only was the whole process easier and faster, but I also got way more zest out of the lime than I usually do.
Another feature that differentiates this zester is the storage container with squeegee, which keeps all your zest in one neat place instead of flying around the kitchen and on your clothes.
In addition to the zester, I’ve also been having fun with Edgeware’s V-etched Coarse Grater with V-etched Grater Attachment and the V-etched Spice Grater. You can’t deny that each of these are designed very ergonomically. The handle features a no-slip grip that makes everyday kitchen tasks much easier. Whereas before you may have dreaded shredding cheese or grating fresh nutmeg, Edgeware makes those tasks much more enjoyable. (And since I love each of these graters so much, I’m pitching my old ones…or at least donating them at our next clothing swap.)
