Rated 4 out of 5 by Sarah14 Great for cheese and carrots
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bettyboop3327 Not sure what is wrong and can't find an answer
I love my Kitchenaid stand mixer, my problem is when I have used the shredder/grater or the slicer attachment. Both of these do a relatively ok job but when I am using them, they come loose, I have to stop the process and pull the pieces away from the blades, etc..
Not sure what I am doing wrong but it is easier for me to just do these processes by hand than having to fight with the attachments.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Consumer Nice for cheese but nothing else
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Karen26 I love this product!
I have had my kitchen mixer and shredder slicer attachment for 37 years. I love it. However this week I found the shaft attachment that attaches the blades to the attachment was bent. I am not sure how this could of even happened after all these years of use. Kitchen aid sells new ones and one is on the way to me. I use this attachment for shredding and slicing cheese, potatoes, cabbage, cucumbers, peppers, carrots, just about anything firmer than tomatoes (it doesn't slice those they are too soft) I have found that my daughter in law's kitchen aid mixer is not as powerful as mine and doesn't work as well. I read the other reviews of this attachment and did not find those problems. So if you are going to buy a new mixer make sure it is the most powerful motor for the best use.
The graters can be difficult to clean especially if used for cheese. It is bulky to store.
