It's not every day you get a press release about a new kitchen appliance, let alone one as specialized as a motorized potato grater. But if you're a fan of Eastern European dishes like kugelis or latkes, you'll want to check out Grandma Ann's Potato Grater, created by Burr Ridge native Brian Vaisnoras. Based on his grandmother's handmade grater and designed by Vaisnoras and his engineer brother with her input, the $229 machine has a cast-aluminum body surrounding a 1/2-horsepower motor, a hinged press arm with a comfy-looking grip, and a 2.75-quart stainless steel bowl.
According to Grandma Ann's, the grater may also be used for other vegetables, such as carrots and squash, or for hard cheeses. The grater is on backorder thanks to strong coverage in the Polish press, but promises to ship in January. More info is available on Grandma Ann's website.
