Decozest (Canelle knife and zester), left-handed (Ref: 26) £7.95 / $13.04 Click for larger image Fully left-handed stainless steel "Canelle" knife with zester ("rake") at the end. The Canelle knife is used for decorating fruit and vegetables by cutting away a thin strip of the skin to leave an interesting shape or pattern. It can also be used on carrots, cucumbers, radishes, apples, pears, lemons, firm bananas, etc. The strips removed can be curled and added to drinks or cocktails or for food decoration. This unique left-handed version has the blade reversed so that you can use it in your left hand pulling the blade towards you while controlling the movement with your left thumb on the fruit or vegetable. The zester has 5 micro blades, set at the correct angle to remove only the zest from a lemon, lime or orange. The zest of a citrus fruit is the very outer skin, which contains all of the highly flavoured and fragrant natural oils. Just below the zest is the bitter tasting white pith - a good quality zester is able to remove the zest and leave behind the pith. The zest is used to add fragrance and flavour to many recipes, including lemon meringue pie, rice dishes, cakes and toppings and sauces. Made in France with a stainless steel blade and black plastic handle with a hanging hole it is dishwasher safe. Click here to find out more or order this product in our new store
