When I make the cranberry sauce, I like to add a bit of an orange zest / rind. I used to take several minutes to slice tiny bits of rind and sometimes people didn't want that chewy piece of rind in the sauce.
I found this item on your site, very well priced and with the catcher feature for the zested pieces and now the job is so quick.
I should have added this item as related when I did my review on the Krona Vented Multi-Pot.

This compact gadget quickly creates loads of short shreds of zest, unlike the classic zester I've been using for decades, which makes long shreds as it's raked over the peel. Handy design captures the shreds which might otherwise be hard to corral in a bowl.
