  1. 1

    Place the potato on a flat surface and cut it in half using a kitchen knife. This will make the potato easier to handle while shredding it on the grater.

  2. 2

    Rub the potato on the grating device. The metal rivets in the device will shred the potato into small thin pieces.

  3. 3

    Cook the shredded potato right away or place the shredded potato in water to slow the oxidation process if you cannot use them right away.
