The Good Grips Lemon Zester is two tools in one. The sharp holes in its stainless steel head remove the zest from the pith of lemons and other citrus fruits easily, and a channel knife feature makes it easy to decorate for garnish. Its soft handle nestles … see full wiki

this little tool enables you to add another, fresh dimension to your
cooking. The bright, sharp tang of citrus peel is a wonder in dozens
of dishes. pancake batter? sure. a reduction sauce? of course.

In fact, any time you have meaty, salty or hot flavors in a combination
that seems to lack something or other, a bit of citrus zest is a good fallback
option. If you're really scrupulous, it pays to get organically grown fruit
because of chemical residues and paraffin preservatives on the skins of
conventionally-grown fruit.
A zester can also be used to raise butter curls or to scrape a carrot into
shreds as a last minute addition to a sauce, or to shred some parsnip into
hot soup.

It's unlikely that you will ever wear out the sharp edges on a zester, but
they are remarkably cheap and if you amortize the cost over-let's say-
a hundred recipes, this is a downright cheap addition to your batterie.

By the way, the little notch that you see in the side is a cannelling or caning blade. It's for cutting long thin strips. Those striped cukes that you see on salad trays are done this way. You can also use the strips themselves as decorative additions to stir-fries, pasta dishes and soups.

OXO is well known for their ergonomic grips. This one looks most unlikely
but actually proves to be very handy (so to speak).
