These are a few of my favorite things... zester/grater
A zester beyond all zesters.
The Microplane grater; I love this thing. It is SUPER sharp, pretty inexpensive at about $12, and is incredibly versatile. It will grate Parmesan into fluffy mounds (bye bye Kraft cheese-like dust!), grate chocolate into a gorgeous powdery topping, grate fresh nutmeg (WOW!) or ginger (I hate mincing), and zest any citrus to perfection. Take care when cleaning; the back is very sharp because it is such a thin piece of metal, so don't slice your hand open!
