      I love this attachment for GRATING CHEESE.
      It does a really fast job, and I have now taken to using it to do a big block of cheese for the begging of the week, and keeping it in a tupperware container for use in my fridge.

      I also think it does a great job at doing carrots, especially for carrot cake/muffins, etc.

      The attachments aren't great for a lot of softer foods, as it sort of mangles them, and using a mandolin, is kind of necessary for things like cucumbers or etc.
      It does a really good job on prepping potato latkes, because it doesn't matter that it turns the potatoes and onions into a goopey mess because of their high water content.

      I was very very disappointed in this product. It does "Mangle" most food items that I wanted to slice up. Yes it can shred carrots but I had to stop multiple times to remove the carrot chunks that ended up between the rotor and the attachment. It does shred cheese nicely, but does not slice anything that I tried- onions, parsley, celery, green peppers without making a mess!
      The most irritating thing was at the time I purchased this in early May there were two good reviews, and no negative review. I cannot understand why negative reviews were not present! It would have kept me from buying the attachment. At the time of my writing this review there is a comment about the food being mangled; but it has generously given it a 4-star! When I returned the rotor/slicer I had to pay for the shipping, which was approximately $14.15.

      Housing Cracked

      By 

      from Los Angeles CA

      Comments about KitchenAid Rotor Slicer/Shredder Stand Mixer Attachment:

      I've had the rotor slicer/shredder for awhile, and used it yesterday to make a shredded Brussels Sprout salad. It made a beautiful salad, but when I took it apart to clean it, I noticed the housing is cracked. I am so disappointed! It had really light use and I am surprised the plastic was so fragile. Now it's unusable.

      Poor Design - Can't get blade off spindle after one use

      By 

      from Walnut Creek CA

      Comments about KitchenAid Rotor Slicer/Shredder Stand Mixer Attachment:

      Got this as a gift. Did not use it for a long time however when I did the first time the slicer cone would not come off the post so I've been unable to use the other attachments! The one slicer works great but I would love to use the shredder at some point but can't until I pry off the slicer from the post. I have hunted for a replacement post to buy to use with the other cones but can't find one. I see others here have had same problem. Since it has been well over a year since I got this - packaging long gone - I can't return it.

      Don't buy this.

      Cracked housing with one use!

      from Arizona

      Comments about KitchenAid Rotor Slicer/Shredder Stand Mixer Attachment:

      I was so excited to get this. Bought new, used once. Washed and put away. When I went to use it again I realized the HOUSING IS CRACKED in two places, AND WILL NO LONGER WORK! Thinking twice about any further KITCHENAID PRODUCTS.

      Check your parts carefully

      By 

      from Austin, Texas

      Comments about KitchenAid Rotor Slicer/Shredder Stand Mixer Attachment:

      My family gifted me with a KitchenAid mixer and I wasn't using it often enough to keep the gear packing from separating. So I decided to buy the rotor slicer so I'd use it more often grating cheese.

      Unfortunately, the first time I used it to grate a chunk of cheddar, the blade wobbled in the housing and the rotation skipped and jumped, causing the grating cone to nick the housing.

      The plate on the shaft was a bit pitched -- which explained the wobble. So I just put the accessory in the back of my cupboard and went back to my hand grater.

      Last month I decided to try it again. The cone stopped spinning 10 minutes into the job! It turned out that the plate that locks into the cone wasn't actually secured to to the accessory shaft! It had only been peened temporarily. There's no way it should have passed a Quality Assurance inspection.

      Now I've just spent an hour unsuccessfully search this site for a list of part numbers so I could order a replacement shaft.

      I could have the plate welded onto the shaft. But I suspect that this joint supposed to break away rather than risk damage to the mixer. (Like a shearing pin does on the power take-off for a farm tractor.)

      It HAS to be an inexpensive replacement part but I can't find a part number. Very frustrating.

      Comments about KitchenAid Rotor Slicer/Shredder Stand Mixer Attachment:

      I wish I had read the reviews first as well. My housing cracked as well. Unfortunately I had not even used the shredder yet. It was a wedding gift that I just unpacked after moving only to find the housing is cracked. I don't even know how to go about getting it replaced since it was a gift

      Terrible design

      from Michigan

      Comments about KitchenAid Rotor Slicer/Shredder Stand Mixer Attachment:

      This is a terrible design, the cone is extremely hard to put in and get out. The metal is so sharp I severely cut my thumbs each and every time. I will be returning this product. Very disappointed.

      A concept that works!

      By 

      from Gresham, OR

      Comments about KitchenAid Rotor Slicer/Shredder Stand Mixer Attachment:

      I have been looking high and low for a cheese grater that would do the work for me. While this was expensive, I liked the fact it wasn't going to take up a lot of space and would keep me from having to buy a food processor just to grate cheese.

      I loved the way that it grated my cheese...quick and easy, just as I hoped. However, when I tried to grate some (mini) carrots to go with my salad, the pieces got stuck in the housing....and I heard a disturbing 'crack.' Yes. Those pesky carrots cracked the housing. However, when I contacted customer service, I felt listened to and they backed their product. For this, it went from a 2 star to a 4 star review. However....you might want to avoid mini carrots and stick with cheese....

      Cracked Housing

      By 

      from Gresham, OR

      Comments about KitchenAid Rotor Slicer/Shredder Stand Mixer Attachment:

      I have been looking and looking for a cheese grater, and hoped this would suit the bill. It handled the cheese ok, but the first time I tried to grate a few carrots, the housing cracked! I'm afraid to use it any more...can customer service help me also?

      Comments about KitchenAid Rotor Slicer/Shredder Stand Mixer Attachment:

      I wish I had looked here before I purchased. Like so many others, the plastic housing for the cones cracked after only a few uses. I have never had a bad experience with a Kitchenaid product, so it didn't occur to me that I would need to save my receipt. I hope the design is updated for better results in the future!

      Frustrated

      By 

      from Texas

      Comments about KitchenAid Rotor Slicer/Shredder Stand Mixer Attachment:

      I love the concept of this attachment. Shredding cheese and potatoes with ease. I have had a couple of problems with the attachment. The second time I used it, the plastic housing was shredded into my cheese (see picture). I have also always had a hard time taking the attachment apart
      (removing the blade from the arm). I have also attached a pictureof this. Now the blade is not coming off! I have injured my knuckles by grating them on the blades while trying to disassemble the attachment. The machine was turned off and unplugged when I did this. The injured knuckles was from my hands slipping and catching the blades. I guess I'm going to have to take the attachment to my hubbys shop just to get it apart, this time.
      Also, I have contacted customer service TWO times about the issue with the plastic shredding. I never received a response back! I have many Kitchen Aid appliances and gadgets. I have recently started buying a different brand, because I was so disappointed in the lack of customer service from KitchenAid.
