Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lou So disappointed!!
I just got this yesterday, as a birthday gift. I was so excited because I've been wanting an attachment for my KitchenAid, and this is my first one! I'm extremely disappointed to report that the only thing it does well is shred cheese. It absolutely mangled a cucumber, potatoes came out a gloppy mess, and the onions were pulverized. There is absolutely no difference between the thick and thin slicer, either.....neither one produces nice, uniformly cut veggies that are of any reasonable thickness that are usable in recipes. So, I have an extremely expensive cheese grater. This makes me incredibly apprehensive about buying any other attachments.....and I really really wanted the pasta roller and ravioli makers! At $150+ I don't know if I'm going to spring for those if they work anything like this slicer/shredder. So disappointed!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Carla Horrible Horrible Product
I recently purchased my kitchenaid... bought the shredder attachment right away. It does okay with cheese...Does much better after it has been placed in the freezer, as suggested.... Tried to make Cole slaw,and I had to push so hard on the lever to get the cabbage shredded.... Tried to slice onions.... That was horrible... IT MADE NOTHING BUT ONION JUICE!! In my opinion, it should slice through stuff like butter... not turn it into a gloppy, sloppy mess.... what a disappointment.... All my life I have wanted a KA mixer and tools, for such disappointments and hassle....HOW SAD! I should post the videos....

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sharon Terrible dull and slicer shreds everything.
This is horrible. My peppers are not sliced but are I don't even know what to call it but maybe mushed? Cukes are shredded on both 4 and 6. It's like the blades are too dull and it all gets caught behind the cone. It actually peeled the skin off my peppers! I gave it one star bc I had to. What a waste of money. I love my kitchen aid and hope I can salvage the shredder or something.

I have been wanting thisvattachment for some time. I finally purchased it this weekend. What a let down. The cheese shredder works good but that is where it ends. The slicer isnt even useable it just beats along the side of the veggie. I finallt just cut the things with a knife. For the hefty price tag on KA products, this product doesnt measure up. I really wanted to like it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Leeanne Having some problems
I got this as part of a kit that contained the shredder and pulper and the pulper works great for making tomato sauces. I used the cheese grinder five or six times and now I find the shaft very hard to remove from its housing to clean and I noticed that it is all scored up on the shaft and inside where the shaft seats. I do like this attachment but I would not recommend this to anyone as its durability just doesn't seem to cut the cheese.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chirp235 Great addition to my kitchen aid mixer
I had been trying to find the attachment I bought and was very happy it had the metal shank. I use the cheese grater and slicer a lot in my everyday cooking.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Really dissapointed by the short life Broke after 5 usages
Trying to find a shredder for my home made laundry detergent. The soap bar got big chunks stuck in the gap all the time. Finally the shaft couldn't be removed that I have to hold the release lever and use a hammer. After it finally came off there's no way I could put it back in. Now, just bought for 3 months and used 5 times, this product is broke.

I had too press hard to make the slicer work. I found out that if you buy the old saladmaster processor blades they fit the kitchenaid. They are sharp and work better. Now I am happy with the kitchenaid and can use it.
