You should never tell anyone to pull the zester toward them . Extremely irresponsible. I'm a nurse and I know better ?
This was very helpful and straight to the point, thank you so much ==]
THANKS!!! About to bake some raspberry lemonade cookies!!
Well done demo…thanks! BTW… stunning kitchen… is that your residential kitchen?
I was using my Zester wrong. Today I'm making home mad Lemoncello!!!!! Now I know to pull towards me not back and forth like I was doing. Thank you.
Gets to the point
Thank you! I never heard of lemon zest until today so this was a really quick, informative, and helpful video!
Thanks! This video answered my question and I really appreciate the short, simple, and clear explanation!
1 minute and 15 seconds are not enough to drool over Thomas.
OMG!! I use this zester in wrong way. I stick the zester in bowl, grab lemon and slice on it. ?
This looks way easier than the way I've been zesting citrus (pretty much rubbing the zester across the citrus or vice versa, which zests unevenly and sometimes gets pith). So thanks!
What a ridiculous video
How do u know those aren't covered with a layer of wax
Lemon zest is great. You can use it for various cakes and dishes.
Aren't most citrus fruits coated in wax?
Could u show how to make chocolate mousse properly, mine never sets fire some reason.
Who the heck doesn't know how to zest a fruit lol
Georgia Andrea, I know!! LOL….hard?? probably wear Velcro shoes, lol. JK!!
what's next, how to breathe before picking up a knife?

What's next? How to peel an orange?
I tend to use a speed peeler as it gets the zest off in nice strips. I then chop it finely. I find graters annoying. Particularly when trying to wash it up, with bits of zest stuck in it.
