Great but short-life
As many have found, Microplane is great, better than many graters before. But it is not durable. Don't know whether it is planned obsolescence. Mine disintegrated after a few years (using about once or twice a week for Parmesan), with the plastic frame first to go, then the very thin metallic foil began to split. For what the grater does, which is a relatively simple task, it is expensive (A$25-$50). For the price, there has to be some grater out there which does a equally good but lasts a lot longer.
Can't live without it... but!
I've had my zester for about 5 years, and love it. It's become like my right arm in the kitchen... used almost daily for garlic, ginger & zesting. I have found it so useful I have recommended it to every cook I know.
The but is...it no longer works! I really thought it would go on forever, but it has worn out...all the "grater bits" (sorry don't know what their proper name is) have flattened !! When I contacted the distributor in Sydney, their only comment was..."They only have a one year warrantee and unfortunately yours has run out."
