**NOTE: To zest a lemon, lime and or orange you can purchase a mirco-planer from online from places like Amazon or any food related stores.

A mirco-plane can be used to zest limes, lemons and oranges. Can be use to grater cheese, nutmeg and so on. Personally I love it; because I use it for just about anything.
