One of the few multitools that does everything it is supposed to do.
Notes: Made by Microplane ( a division of Grace Manufacturing in Russellville, Arkansas) , This is a new multifunction tool for bartenders or anyone else that needs to zest, grate, or open a bottle.Only available at Williams and Sonoma ( so far anyway).
Appearance: Brushed stainless steel roughly 5 1/2 inches long by about 2 inches wide, more or less on piece of stamped steel (18 gauge?) with a rubber edging. Zest/garnish tool at the top, grater in the middle, bottle opener at bottom with half moon hanger or lanyard hole.
First Impression: Fits hand nicely, big enough to find easily but small enough to carry easily.
Testing : Used it on all manner of fruits and a few vegetables both carved and grated zests/garnishes, opened numerous bottles and ran through commercial dishwasher . Tested over 3 month period
Results: Works well, quite sharp and precise, hard steel does not dull easily and maintains a good edge, repeated use then washing in commercial dishwasher does not seem to effect it at all.Zests/grates quickly without digging into pith.Bottle opener function is good if not great.
Pros: Well made, good multipurpose tool.
Cons: Could use a slip off or pop on cover for grater – otherwise do not put in pocket – especially with anything else you don’t won’t scarred up quickly.
Other: Model # 41950
Final Thoughts: Nicely made tool that will stand up to a lot of abuse. A little pricey for what it is but excellent quality tool that is vey satisfying to use.
