Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dee KitchenAid Rotor Slicer/Shredder
A few days ago I purchased the KitchenAid Rotor Slicer/Shredder. I used it today and was very disappointed. Shredding for coleslaw resulted in a chopped mess more like grated. I then tried slicing carrots and there were very few nice whole slices, mostly pieces, nothing like the picture. They should be sliced, you don't chop them with an axe. I called customer service and they said they would send another and I could return this one. This resulting product indicates faulty engineering. When I purchase a product with the KitchenAid name I expect it to perform to a higher standard and not mutilate my vegetables.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Steph Great for cheese
I love the attachments for my cheese but I tried shredding carrots and they were not nice little shredded pieces, they were pretty muchard like pulp. I haven't tried the slicer yet, norshredding cabbage, luckily I was making soup so it didn't matter I don't think it is sharp enough for veggies as far as the shredder goes so I was disappointed with that, but my cheese is always fantastic

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KJT Noncook Great Idea, Poor Execution
I bought my wife a Kitchen Aid mixer for Christmas. I also splurged on a variety of attachments. I love the mixer, but I haven't had a great experience with the attachments. The slicer/ shredder is the first attachment that she has tried. She wanted to use it to slice some celery and carrots. The pieces that it did slice were super thin, regardless of which size slicer she used. The celery was extra messy. It looked nothing like the pictures that I have seen. As I type this, my wife is in there with the old fashioned cutting board chopping away. Bummer. I guess I should go help clean up the mixer.

I tried to slice potatoes and neither one worked. I just went to the local store to buy a slicer, they do not have anything. As for the mixer it works fine

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tracy Makes the job alot easier
I purchased this product to work in conjunction with my kitchen cutter. The kitchen cutter suctions to my counter tops but comes unattached half way through use, making it very difficult to use. This attachment works just as well as my kitchen cutter only better because the mixer is the weight and all of my kitchen cutter blades work with this attachment. This makes wonderful fresh cut shredded potatoes and cheese. I saw another review about cabbage. I have not tried it with this attachment but i know it worked well with the kitchen cutter so i cant imagine it being an issue. I use this on almost a daily basis. Since having this product, i have not used my food processor.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Holly the Homemaker Kitchenaid Slicers are both Thin
I just purchased the attachments and sliced the zucchini I had. Zucchini was firm and very cold. Both the #4 and #6 (thick and thin) slicer mutilated the zucchini. The space appeared equal in both slicer attachments.Very disappointed. Am contemplating taking it back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jmluciano Time Saver!
I was surprised at the amount of low ratings for this, I've had mine for about a year and tell everyone that it was the best investment! After the mixer, of course :) We buy a lot of hard cheeses like parm and pecorino and blocks of cheddar and similar other cheeses and the grater allows me to grate them in a matter of seconds! I've never had any issues with attaching it or cleaning it. I gave it 4 stars simply because I've never actually used all of the cones, just the small grater one.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Techeagle50 Poor design and poor fit
Very poor design. The attachment has a piece that is supposed to fit into a notch on the mixer and then a screw to tighten the attachment. I have never been able to push the attachment into the mixer far enough to align the holes to tighten it. That results in the attachment falling off during use, and since I tried to tighten it to prevent that, the plastic on the screw even cracked. Certainly not worth anywhere near the price of this attachment. I only give it two stars because the concept would be great if the product actually worked.
