Meh

Tb 9/25/2017

I bought this to shred cheese....it worked good for awhile....except the cheese did gum up between the housing and the shredder. Now the shredder flies out all the time and will not stay in the unit. A lot of money to get another one:(

A questionable attachment

Jim W. 9/25/2017

Well, I too bought the Roto Slicer/shredder with the intent of utilizing it for what the name implies, shredding vegetables. From what I"m reading it does that and a lot more, sheds and destroys most vegetables that com in contact with it. After washing and preparing several different types of veggies, I gave it a whirl, slow or fast the end result was the same, MUSH! Great if you want to peel potatoes, run them through the shredder then cook them for mashed. If that is your desire, this is a great machine to create mushy veggies. Carrots, same thing. And like anything and everything, what doesn't make it to the blade goes behind them and jams up the works, I mean really jams the thing then you have a problem of getting it apart to clear the jam only to have it happen again and again. OK, so let's address a solution. First, all the cones have a blade/cutting edge that is parallel to the hopper. The blade doesn't cut, it shreds whatever is placed into the hopper. Cones should have a spiral twist in the entire cone similar to a barber pole to allow the cone to cut. Increase the clearance in order to get between the cone and the housing to clear a jam yet reduce the clearance at the initial point of contact to ensure the items being cut enter the cone instead of sliding down between the cone and the housing. Speaking of the housing, hard plastic is a poor choice, even though it is probably made by injection molding. Try a layered fiberglass mesh that can withstand the torque developed when in use. The drive shaft should be supported in it's entire length with a seal on both ends to prevent food stuffs from entering the shaft and installed in such a way that if necessary can be easily removed and replaced. The entire Roto Slicer/Shredder is good in principal; however, there are several design flaws that once addressed will make this very useful attachment.

Slicer and Shred Cone Concerns

Xanderinn 9/24/2017

The shredding attachment worked great. Problem is with the c po new. They are supposed to be stainless steel and dishwasher safe. But when we retrieved them from the dishwasher they all had what appears to be rust stains. Now I don't want to used them for fear of what will transfer to our food.

Bad design

Scarlet 9/23/2017

Do not use this attachment it is no good at all. Unless you don't mind eating cuts of plastic in food. I had to throw out 5 pounds of mozzarella cheese. I didn't notice that the cutter was also cutting the edge of the housing till I removed it to wash it. It had large cut marks on the inside. If you place any pressure on the pusher it will lean to the other side and cut the plastic housing. Can't believe KitchAid never pulled this off the shelves and never did a recall.

I bought this attachment thinking it would make life easier. It made everything into mush. Ruined all my vegetables. I wish I could've returned it but waited too long.

Poor performance

Petra 8/5/2017

I had this shredder tucked away for about 6 years. I got it out today as I recently injured my wrist and shredding by hand is not an option at the moment. Today I was reminded again why it was tucked away for years. The idea is there but that's it. It doesn't shred, it mushes and on top quite large pieces of whatever you are shredding get stuck in between the housing and the actual shredding cone. Very poorly designed and so disappointing. You would expect so much more of KitchenAid. I do own a meat grinder too from KitcheAid and I am VERY satisfied with it. But I feel this is not worth spending money on it. In fact quite the waste. Back in cupboard it goes.

Kori 7/19/2017

I received this as a Christmas gift. I am finally using it now that there is an abundance of fresh vegetables available. I simply cannot get this to work, All I end up with is mush. I have tries all 4 cones. I have tried various speeds. I have read everything I could find. I was so excited to try this attachment out. I love all my other KitchenAid items, but I am extremely disappointed with this one.

What a piece of Junk!!!

Cruiser 7/5/2017

I can't believe KitchenAid would put their name and stamp of approval on such a poorly designed, totally useless piece of junk. The only thing this attachment makes is a mangled sloppy mess. I have dime store appliances that work better than this piece of junk. It would seem that KitchenAid is just cashing in on a once reliable name and reputation. Do yourself and others a favor, don't waste your good money on this thing, it's junk pure and simple. We should all get a newly redesigned model that actually works as it should, for Free!

tom 6/25/2017

the post or the piece that goes into the mixer that twists onto the cones has broken and i am unable to fix it. The set is not able to be used without this part. There should be two posts with the set in case one breaks. I have had this unit for several years, but the cone still have not come apart as it was not used a lot in that time.

I want grated not mush

Darlene the baker 6/24/2017

I bought this a while back to go with my new mixer that replaced my old Kitchen Aid. I wish I would've kept the old cones. The new ones just make mush out of carrots, zucchini, cheese, etc. This is not acceptable. Can I exchange for better sharper cones that work? Or is this what I am stuck with?

Housing Cracked

Mindee P 6/21/2017

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

Monroe 6/14/2017

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.

Check your parts carefully

BAMaustin 5/9/2017

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.

A concept that works!

teribk 3/29/2017

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....

Frustrated

Christy from Texas 2/26/2017

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.

Nothing but trouble

Dora 2/17/2017

My sister has had one of these for many years and has always had good comments about it so I got one a few years ago. The first time I used it, it was hard to get the shredder blade attached, and when I was done, I couldn't get it off. So this sat in the back of my pantry shelf ever since. I noticed it last week and decided to try again. I had to use pliers to get the shredder blade off and to attach a slicer blade. It was difficult to get it attached to the mixer, and to remove it when I was done. I have not been able to get the slicer blade off now. During the time this sat in the pantry, the plastic cracked where it attaches to the mixer.

Terrible do not buy. Older one was great replacement is not

mbeckler83 1/24/2017

I loved my previous one bought 6+ years ago and it served me well for many years but finally the plastic broke where it attaches to the mixer. I figured 6 or so years was a good run with something I used weekly so I ordered a new one and waited. Got new one and got rid of old one including the slicing cones. Boy was that a mistake the new cones felt lighter and they are so much duller then the old ones you need a lot of force to slice even soft things like sweet potatoes. At first I thought it was just my imagination but after reading other reviews on here I see I'm not the only one. If you buy this because your plastic housing broke DO NOT GET RID of your old cones the new ones are so much more dull then 6 year old ones and you will regret not having them.

Not happy with this

ackrondeb 1/2/2017

Tried to slice carrots. I used both thicknesses and both turned out about the same. Bits and pieces. Had a few slices, but most pieces. Plus it spit everything out onto the floor instead of the bowl. I had to hold the bowl right under it and press on the hopper thing at the same time. Needed 2 people to use it. Don't want to try it on anything else. I really believe it would make mush out of anything softer than a carrot.

Horrible slicer

Adam 1/1/2017

I got this for free when I bought my kitchenaid stand mixer. Used it first to spread some potatoes for hash browns. The shredding aspect of this actually works pretty well. Shredded a few potatoes quickly. Nothing stuck so clean up was a breeze. Hash browns came out perfectly. Decided to try the slicer to make some potato chips. This is where this product falls flat. It was absolutely horrible. My slices were all a different constantly and some of it ended up as mush. If you plan on using this for slicing, save yourself a few bucks and get a nice mandoline instead.

Poor Ergonomics

Lisa 12/31/2016

This product needs to be redesigned. Assembly is difficult, frustrating, and often unsuccessful. See photos. When attaching the slicing cylinders, the consumer has to grip a thin metal rim and twist into another part which is a friction fit. In my case, the friction fit was too tight and I was only able to use one of the slicing cylinders. I tried to wear gloves, but the gloves ripped and my fingers were in pain. I have to worked in a deli, and also a restaurant kitchen and I have experience with cutting and slicing equipment. I can tell you that this kitchen aid product poses a risk of somebody injuring themselves during assembly. (I have additional photos)

I've had my Rotor Slicer/Shredder for 4 yrs but the plastic next to attachment to mixer is cracking ready to break off. My mom has an old metal attachment that is still working great after all these years. I only used it for shredding cheese because vegetables turn mushy and watery. I spent over $1,000 on several attachment accessories for my mixer trusting the brand. I don't have issues with other attachments this is my first real issue. My cones are in great shape and the rotor except the crack area is fine. See photos. Very disappointed with this. Shedder wasn't cheap.

Jen S 12/29/2016

I received this attachment as a Christmas gift from my husband. We were very excited to use it for the first time to make pizza and we're so disappointed with it. Pepperoni turned to crumbles, red peppers, cheese, everything to mush. Tried different speeds, different pressure and nothing helped. The blades need to be sharper! I contacted KitchenAid and was told I just needed to use fresh fruits and vegetables and peel the cucumber skins and freeze the cheese first...etc...shouldn't have to do all those extra steps for it to work properly! I think KitchenAid should refund for this product or send out new ones with a better design and sharper blades.

Shredder produces mush instead of cole slaw.

New kitchenaid owner 12/27/2016

Just purchased a new KitchenAid KP26M1PSL Professional and the KitcenAid Mixer Attachment Pack w/ RVSA, FGA & FVSP. Tried to make coleslaw for Christmas with the course shredder. I do not know if it is not made correctly or what but it is soo dull all I got was a mush of cabbage and carrots. The fine shredder and both slicers fill sharp. They have been sharpened. This one is just blunt stamped out metal that is as dull as a froe. Do not know if I can sharpen it or not.

Everything Cook Carolyn said is true. I was very excited to get the shredder slicer & am very unhappy with it.

oh mylanta!

Cook Carolyn 12/7/2016

This is very painful for me to write. I have a big white 20 year old kitchenaid stand mixer that still works like a marine!!! I got attachments for it 10 years ago and have had nary a problem with the attachments or mixer, even with the age difference! I got a brand new kitchenaid stand mixer from one of my bosses, last year for Christmas. I got new attachments for it this last month. They Are Junk!!! I washed and dried the slicer tubes and one is rusted already. Then I went to use it to shred lettuce using three of the slicers and only got mushy lettuce. Yes it took a pair of pliers to get the hub loose from slicers tubes. The tube that rusted would not attach to the hub. I'm thinking of wasting more time by taking it back to the store and try another set?! Kitchenaid has always been such a good brand. What happened? You only get two stars out of 5. Embarrassing

Not at all what I expected

LilDab 11/30/2016

I have several kitchaid products and this is the first that I've been disappointed with. Here are a couple issues that I have with the product: 1. The housing easily gets stained. 2. I washed the two attachments I used and the next day there were rust spots on them. 3. The locking mechanism of the attachments are difficult and unsafe to remove. One of my attachments requires pliers to remove, 4. Therer is no consistency of the slices that are made. This would be a product that I would return to the store. However, they will not accept a used item. I think Kitchenaid should seriously consider modifying this product.

Cracked housing

Canyon man 11/26/2016

Bought our first kitchenaid twenty plus years ago has work flawlessly it's in the last five a crack in the house of the roto slicer/ shredder has appeared. Am hopeful that a new housing will let us shred cheese, just like it did when it was new ( here's to hoping)

Very poor product

RN 11/25/2016

Right out of the box I was skeptical since the blades were dull. I could not have cut myself if I'd tried. I attempted to shred lettuce and cheese and slice cucumbers and carrots for a salad. The lettuce and cucumbers turned to mush, the carrots turned to awkward chunks, the cheese was shaved in small wide pieces. The cheese would work, but was not what I expected from something advertised as a shredder. In addition, food was wasted due to large pieces getting stuck between to blades and the housing unit which led to me taking it all apart between each food item. I am very disappointed in the product and will likely never use it again. Huge waste of money. I am surprised a brand like kitchen aide would keep their name on this without remedying all the many faults in the product and the disappointed customers.

Be hesitant

Red the home chef 11/19/2016

I bought this attachment because the food processors chute was too small to handle whole potatoes. It was a waste of money. followed all directions and still would not shred cabbage very well-just gummed up. I trust a product with such a well-respected name would do better than this. The cones do not seem to be very sharp. save your money and invest in something else. If you email kitchen aid don't hold your breath for a response.

Needs better casing

Homemaker 11/19/2016

I bought this when I got my mixer about 15 years ago so I hope you've fixed the problem with the casing. Mine broke along time ago but I didn't use it much back then as I worked. I can still use it for soft items and it still works but not to slice anything like cucumbers or even celery. I don't work any more and I love to make pickles but this tears these things to pieces when you try to slice them.So I was looking on here to get a new slicer/shredder,but all I really need is the casing. I saw the reviews and though I'd add this in case it helps anyone.

Yes, I recommend this product

Casing cracked

Pat 11/17/2016

I purchased the shredder many years ago. Shortly thereafter the casing cracked. I have only used it to shred zucchini and cabbage and it works fine. I have finally decided to replace it because of the broken casing. While searching for a replacement I came across these reviews and decided to provide my review even if it is years late.
