This review is from: Microplane 46620 Premium Yellow Zester/Grater (Kitchen)I have bought and compared 3 series of microplane products. They are 1. professional 2. premium 3. classic.
Here is what I found.
They are all using the same blade-made in USA but assembled in Mexico.
The designs differ. Professional is more auqare like many graters we have used from before. It is not super eye catching. The premium and classic series has that long lean body that everyone recognizes easily to be super special to microplane.
Furthermore,Premium and classic series come with plastic handles and several reviewers complain they broke if you are too forceful. The professional series are made of all stainless steel all over.

Almost the Ultimate Zesting Tool,
This review is from: Microplane 46620 Premium Yellow Zester/Grater (Kitchen)I find this to be a better tool for zesting than the traditional zester. I use less effort zesting with this Microplane to remove only the rind and not get to that white pith that is very bitter. And most of the zest collects underneath the tool or falls from below.

This Microplane is fairly easy to wash and clean. But, after washing, hold the handle and shake out the water that collects in the handle. Then place the Microplane with the handle up after washing so the water dries out from the handle.
I see that there is a newer version of this tool with a shorter and wider rasp area. The tool also includes a small and large strip zester.
PROS: Removes the zest with less effort and better control (without removing the bitter pith). Easily collects the zest without it collecting on... Read more

This review is from: Microplane Premium Zester/Grater (Kitchen)Had this model of Microplane for 5+ years - until the plastic broke & that was it. Upgraded to the professional series to avoid another breakage (always at the wrong time) - love these zesters!!! Also got the coarse grater & dumped my old box grater forever. Spend the extra couple of bucks & get a professional series - you will love it forever.
