This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in May of 2018. You may think that the only useful parts of lemons, limes, and oranges are on the inside, but the outsides offer a simple way to add flavor to everything from marinades to desserts. These zesters make it easy to finely grate citrus peels, garlic, whole spices, hard cheese, and even chocolate, and we've also included a few models for bartenders that help make perfect garnishes for cocktails. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best zester on Amazon.

Originally from a tiny town in Virginia, Gabrielle moved to Los Angeles for a marketing internship at a well-known Hollywood public relations firm and was shocked to find that she loves the West Coast. She spent two years as a writer and editor for a large DIY/tutorial startup, where she wrote extensively about technology, security, lifestyle, and home improvement. A self-professed skincare nerd, she’s well-versed in numerous ingredients and methods, including both Western and Asian products. She is an avid home cook who has whiled away thousands of hours cooking and obsessively researching all things related to food and food science. Her time in the kitchen has also had the curious side effect of making her an expert at fending off attempted food thievery by her lazy boxer dog.
