Rated 1 out of 5Â by Gammy8365 Wish it had worked
Read several other reviews and thought maybe others were being too critical. Bought the slicer/shredder and it is so true what everyone said. The vegetables stuck between slicer and cone. Cone is very hard to loosen, had to have help. Husband even had trouble...seems the more you shred the tighter it gets.
Sorry wish it had worked...loved the idea of having one appliance with several different attachments. Kitchen Aid please go back other drawing board and fix the issues. Shredder/slicer just does not work not worth the money.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by bobolynx A good smasher but does NOT cut/slice
The product literature lead you to believe that it is a slicer...IT DEFINITELY IS NOT. The metal in the cones is near 1/8th inch thick, and the elements to slice or shred have been pushed out of the metal. But these edges have not been sharpened so when you try to slice a vegetable it is only accomplished by brute force on the plungers and the result is a torn away (Not Sliced) Vegetable. I am going to take it back...as it is either not made correctly and misrepresented in their literature. I have worked in and around food for over 40 years and this product is just bad.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by LadyLoves2Cook KitchenAidÂ® Rotor Slicer/Shredder destroys, doesn't slice
Last year, I attempted to use the Rotor Slicer to slice cucumbers for pickling. It just destroyed my cukes! I have also tried to use this for Carrots, didn't work well at all. I was able to make sliced potatoes, but I found it to be difficult to disengage once you are completed with your slicing. My husband had to help me and he used a pliers. I love my Kitchen Aide, but this attachment is really bad.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by mamazig Awkward to load, press, mushy results and food builds up inside cylinder or shoots outside of bowl.
My old 70's Oester Mixer shredder and slicer was easier to use and with better results. I am glad I kept it. It. The recommended speed setting at four seems too slow for potatoes, carrots, and/or cabbage.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by hugh69 poor product
Being lead to believe that this was a shredder/ slicer I bought it --wrong move-- this wont even shred carrots properly. The edges are all rounded off as if the process of sharping them was over looked . I went to BB&B and pulled another one out for inspection. Same problem. Hate to see Kitchen Aid put out such a poor product.
