oh, yeah, I know all about the fingernail grate.....imagine an accent over the "e"........after cutting my hands for the 2nd time on my sharp santoku (sp?) knife the doctor wanted to know if I had thrown it away? What are you nuts? Do you know what I paid for that? Same with the zester and grater............

Not really - you can't grate with a zester - you can't microplane with a zester - so it's not the same thing. And yes, a person can grate eggs. I do it all the time when I make chicken salad or even when I make egg salad - I grate some (have even used my microplane but that's a bit fine for me) and then chop the rest.

I just use a grater. I rub the whole lemon, orange or whatever against is until all the orange or yellow is off.
