The Best Hand Crank Nut Grater

The Best Hand Crank Nut Grater

This was a gift from my parents & I am amazed at the precision of this grater/grinder.  It is made by "Westmark" and is advertised as an "Almond grater" but it can be used for any nut.  I used hazelnuts for this post.

Before I received this Westmark grater I was using a hand held & hand crank grater that had been used so much that the crank handle was hanging on by a thread.  This old hand held grater would always allow huge chunks of nuts to pass through without being grated - anything that I baked would have unwanted large nut pieces (that won't happen anymore).

I was also amazed at the suction base that miraculously anchors the grater to the table/counter.

If I had to complain about something the only thing would be that I needed my husband's strong assistance in unscrewing the handle - otherwise it's a perfect kitchen tool.

I am truly amazed at how accurately this baking tool grated these hazelnuts - see picture below.

  1. This looks like it works great. Thank you for sharing this

  2. This looks like an awesome product! Great review!

  3. Wow, that looks really neat. I've been baking a lot lately and I just got my first stand mixer and I'm super excited about it. I've been baking desserts like crazy since I got it. Thanks for the review on this gadget. Maybe one day I will own one for myself. :) Oh, I was wondering, could you grind coffee beans in it. That would be cool to grind fresh coffee beans for your coffee every morning.

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by. I don't think that you could grind coffee beans because it would be more shaved than ground - I don't know really - maybe I should try it.
      Happy baking!

  4. This looks really nice! I like adding ground nuts to baked goods (you can sub a bit of ground nuts for flour) to make them a little bit more wholesome, but I think I would use this to make pecan-crusted chicken-yum!


Please feel free to leave comments or questions (no question is ever stupid) - They will show up on the blog once I have read through them.
Thank You.
