KitchenAid Slicer/Shredder Attachment Review

41Xt84q-0RLAs the name suggests, this KitchenAid attachment slices and shreds food. It comes with two shredding cones – one fine and one coarse and two slicing cones – one thick and one thin. So you can shred or slice cheese, chocolate, nuts or vegetables.

Unfortunately, like the KitchenAid pasta maker attachment, this attachment hasn’t been rated very well by many consumers. The main complaint is that it turns the food into mush. However, many have said that it shreds cheese really well. So unless you are going to be shredding large quantities of cheese, this attachment is probably not worth the expense.

Our First  Test

We have to agree with other reviewers on this one. We had issues not only with the outcome of the food but with the device itself.

We tried this out first with carrots, cucumber and cheese. We used the fine shredder for the carrots and the cheese and the results were pretty good for the cheese. I would be happy to use this again for grating cheese especially in large quantities. However, the carrots came out a bit too sloppy in my opinion as if they were over processed and the cucumber was just mush.

Also when we finished using this attachment we had a lot of trouble removing the grater/slicer cone to dismantle the slicer to wash it.
