    Hi Sue, I have seen them advertised online. 'Poh's Kitchen' had a forum asking the same question - I'd have a look at some of their suggestions: http://www2b.abc.net.au/tmb/Client/Me...

    I think it's something that is going to need a bit of hunting; I haven't found one in the Asian shops near me :( I may have to see if they can order one in.

      I had looked on Poh's kitchen did see one there rather expensive when P&P were added, not to worry I will keep looking...who knows perhaps a few of the on-line kitchen shops will get the message and stock them...thank you for your kind help :-)

        You need somewhere with a Southern Indian/ Sri Lankan bias.

        I am certain I have seen them in the bigger Indian food stores out in Harris Park (Sydney)

          Thank you, should have mentioned I don't live in Sydney (anymore) but in Coffs, but would be happy to buy on line if I could...found only one on ebay in England, but P&P too expensive. Thank you for your reply.

            All the Indian supermarkets I go to have them, but I am in Melbourne.

            Sue, do you mean the 'round' coconut reaming device? And whereabouts are you?
