Does anyone know of a tabletop device that can grate coconut electrically? I love coconut products but most recipes call for grating the kernel which I do not like to do, it is a hard job, sometimes bits of my skin end end up in the grate. Long ago my brother made what he called a coconut mill by wrapping and fastening a nail punched tin plate around a cylindrical wooden block and then attaching a shaft through the block with a hand crank at one end he then attached the shaft through bearings fastened over a box for catching the finished product which was milled by pressing the coconut kernel between a narrow gap made by a rigid piece of material and the milling block and turning the hand crank.
I know many will say just use a blender but a good amount of people warn me not to blend coconuts for making the products of interest, they also warn me not to blend sweet potatoes for the famous sweet potato pudding the Caribbean people love so much, so the above device could be used for grating sweet potatoes for puddings as well,
I have searched a lot but can not find any electrical device that will give the same result as grating, is there something that can do this that I am not aware of?
If nothing exist I may have to use my brother's idea with an electrical motor and control to invent something.
