The versatile Ultimate Citrus Tool features a patented surgical grade stainless steel Fine Microplane® blade – the company’s best-selling blade style – which excels in zesting the flavorful and aromatic peel of citrus fruit without grating into the bitter pith. In addition, the Ultimate Citrus Tool features two decorative garnishing blades in a large (.297-inch diameter) and small (.188-inch diameter) size. Conveniently positioned on one side of the tool, the decorative stainless steel circular blades effortlessly cut through the fruit’s peel to make restaurant-style garnishes in seconds. On the opposite side, an easy to use scoring blade simplifies the task of making citrus peel to garnish dishes and cocktails.
Care & Cleaning
We recommend rinsing your ultimate citrus tool in warm water immediately after each use. Remove trapped particles from the non-sharp side whenever possible. To remove trapped particles on the front, first soak the tool in warm water and then use a cleaning brush to stroke in the same direction as the teeth. Store with blade covered when not in use.
Microplane graters' tiny razor-like edges are formed by a totally different process called photo-etching in which holes are dissolved with a chemical, leaving edges that finely slice the food instead of tearing or shredding.
