Deiss zester and grater review

Product Review: Deiss Pro Lemon Zester & Grater

I've got one of those walls which seems to have every piece of kitchen gadgetry thats ever been made.

Decor Recently refurbished, Ad Lib still looks like a downtown Manhattan bar but is now more classy with booths, hipster filament lightbulbs and the bar has relocated from the left hand side to the back wall.
