My take on the product:

I was excited to receive this product, because I currently do not have a zester and do not even have a grater of any kind anymore either. So I wanted to get one of these, when I was contacted by Tracey to review this. 

Of course there is the obvious thing to grate and that is cheese. My family loves the meal, "Chicken Parmesan." And it is even better if you have fresh grated cheese on top. Which up until now, I was not able to grate my own cheese. But once I got the 2-in 1 Zester & Grater, I made it with my own cheese.



I took these pictures usuing the zester/grater. It was very easy to use and very sharp too. I got a nice little bowl of cheese ready for my dish, in no time. My daughter even helped out doing this. I really like the long sleekness of this, and the big handle to grab onto. Really making this easy to grasp and hold onto while grating.

I also like the color! It is a bright orange and really makes it stand out! This is also inspiring me to get creative in the kitchen. I have never really zested much let's say. But thinking about zesting some chocolate over some recipes, or oranges, or lemons and limes. Is giving me some ideas about recipes I can try. I can not wait to start exploring some new dishes to try out, using my new 2-in 1 Zester + Grater. 

Oh, and another thing I like about this is how easy it was to clean. I just rinsed it under some water with a little soap in the sink and it rinsed right off. But you can put it in the dishwasher too, which is handy. (It also comes with a little plastic cover that goes over it - which is nice for storing it)

So you would like your own 2-in 1 Zester  + Grater? -  then you can purchase it on Amazon.com. 

Price is only $12.95!

Can you think of any recipes you would like to use it for?

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.


  1. Looks like a handy kitchen tool. I don't have a small grater like that one. We eat a lot of cheese at our house so something like that might be pretty useful. Have a terrific Tuesday!

  2. Looks like an amazing zester to have in the kitchen.

  3. Wooo! We need one of these so badly! My husband is constantly looking for the zester we once had but lost.
