To a lemon or lime, this elegant citrus tool from Microplane is everything a box grater is not.
A comfortable, easy-grip handle prevents slippage. Its surgical-grade, stainless-steel blade deftly removes the bright-colored, aromatic rind of the fruit without cutting into the bitter pith. Two additional garnishing blades make it easy to slice professional-quality decorative peels. It’s just the right tool for increasing the style and substance of favorite dishes and drinks. $13 at us.microplane.com; the Web site also has a store locator.
