Susan I 5 I bought this zester to make an orange cake that I have made many times before. I love the cake but zesting two large oranges was always something I dreaded. BUT not anymore. This time I had the zesting finished in no time at all, the zests were much finer than I could have cut them myself and much thinner. No pulp, just orange zest. The zester is easy to handle, does not slip and is sharp enough to cut into the orange zest without too much force and isn’t dangerous when you throw it into the kitchen tool drawer. Very well made. ??
