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.

Glorified cheese shredder and poor slicer. DISSAPOINTED

By 

from United States of America

Comments about KitchenAid Rotor Slicer/Shredder Stand Mixer Attachment:

Hubby got this for me for Christmas. We have tried it once. We tried both sizes of slicers on potato and onion. The potato sort of worked. Roughly half the potato was actually sliced. The rest was reduced to pulp/juice. The onion was completely pulped. Perhaps KitchenAid should market this as a juicer rather than a slicer. The fine shredder choked up on the cheese (cheddar) and produced something akin to cheese sprinkles. The coarse shredder did an impressive job and produced beautifully shredded cheese.
Overall, I am very disappointed with the performance of this attachment. I expect something labeled slicer to actually slice.

Should be called The Pulverizer

        Comments about KitchenAid Rotor Slicer/Shredder Stand Mixer Attachment:

        This product does NOT slice, it pulverizes. The blade are not sharp enough to cut a cucumber, as advertised. I had to apply a significant amount of force to get the vegetables through the blades. The vegetables wouldn't slice, they were crushed. A large portion of the veggies would get stuck between the plastic and the metal. Not to mention the fact that the cucumber puree flew everywhere. I tried faster. I tried slower. Still a mushy mess. I can't believe I wasted $55 on this piece of junk attachment. Very disappointing. I'll be tossing it (not donating it) as I don't want someone wasting their $3 on it at the thrift store.

                    This is the best for making sauerkraut. I use the shredding disk and everything comes out in a uniform size. The hardest part is figuring out where to place the bowl! Love it!

                          Just received this in the mail yesterday and mostly purchased it for cheese grating as I make breakfast burritos in bulk. The cheese came out perfectly, but will try the other options of the grater as well in the future! Beats hand-grating cheese by far and only 2 pieces to clean, where as my food processer requires much more cleaning. LOVE this product so far!!!!

                                I have only tried the attachment a few times and found some of the slicers and shredders needed judicious adjustment before they would fit onto the shaft properly (especially shredder #1). That being accomplished, the attachment worked fine shredding very hard cheese and potato.
                                Oh yes, the shredder left thin pieces of cheese and potato in the shredder but, I don't know of any shredder that shreds everything.
                                I have only limited experience with the attachment's overall performance but, if you are thinking of purchasing one I would recommend you have someone handy in the house who can make the adjustments to the slicers and shredders.
