Coconut Grater / Kitchen Appliance

Coconut Grater
Coconut Grater

The design has a completely enclosed design, along with a blade on a movable rail. The coconut fits into a button-operated vice grip at one end and another button on the handle at the opposite end starts the rotary blade, that the user then slides into the concavity of the coconut. The blades safely grate the white flesh, without humans having to hold the coconut or even interact with the blade. Everything happens under a safe, transparent Plexiglas cover that the user can see through, knowing when to stop grating the coconut. All the grated flesh collects in a tray at the bottom, ready to use in your food, or for desiccating and using later!
