    Some reviewers have complained of discoloration of the attachments or difficulty cleaning it. I find this to be untrue of my experience with it. Since purchasing this unit, I have shredded sharp cheddar as well as Colby cheese 4 or 5 times and have had no issues. One thing I do agree with is that there sometimes will be a thin strip of cheese that was not shredded once the blade attachment is removed, but I just eat that by itself, so its no great loss. Additionally, the shredding blades that come with the unit shred the cheese in a way that makes the cheese shreds/curls fluffy. While surprisingly amusing, it is beneficial because that means the cheese can be spread further in recipes.

    I have used the slicer/grater several times since purchasing it. It grates parmesan cheese and related hard cheeses just as I want. The slicing blade works well on carrots, my only use thus far. I will probably continue to use a mandolin for softer vegetables. I'm pleased with ease of cleaning. The blade and grate mechanisms slide out easily and the holder for the slicer/graters is easy to clean also. I have put them into the dishwasher with success. I wish the slicer provided for different thicknesses, as the earlier model did, but all in all, well worth the price.

    My first Kitchen Aid attachment

    I wanted to get more use from my Kitchen Aid mixer, so I bought the Slicer/Shredder Attachment when it was on sale. It was great for slicing zucchini and worked well for grating carrots. Carrots however stain the plastic casing, but it cleaned up well with baking soda. Very glad that the slicer and shredder cylinders can be washed in the dishwasher. I don't mind washing the casing by hand.

    I have wanted a kitchenaid mixer for years and finally bought one, I am extremely happy. I was so excited I bought several accessories. The slicer is nice, I have only used the slicer so far. I cut up zucchini and it was interesting to use, if you’re not careful the sliced pieces will get jammed up in the slicer barrel. Wish you could choose between thick and thin slices, standard is pretty thin. Otherwise it is great!

    This purchase was made because A) I have a KitchenAid and B) I am tired of cleaning that triangle shredder that we have had for years. The feeder port is not tiny, but it is not anywhere close to big. Cleaning is easy. There has been many times where the cheese builds up in the cylinder and you have to scoop it out. The item is not too bad, and not too great....workable.

    My wife and I bought this attachment to grate up cheddar cheese. In fact that is the very cheese this is pictured on the box. Unfortunately not only did a clog up the device but it just didn't cut it very well... and cleanup is absolutely horrendous. We very quickly packaged this up after cleaning it (which took forever )and sent it back to Best Buy.

    Overall a good quality attachment that you expect from Kichen-aid. Everything was of the highest quality and easy to assemble. The only thing negative was the slicer was only a thin slice. It slice cucumbers no problem but you couldn’t get a pickle slice rather they came out as potato chips.

    This attachment is incredible. There are four different blades so you can really slice and shred however you want! You can slice veggies into thin, identical slices in no time. You also can shred cheese and veggies. The great thing is that the feeder has different inserts that are various widths, so you can really shred whatever you want.

    I had the older model and they had an issue of the plastic cracking. I did like the cone shape of the older one better. However it appears they corrected the issue of the plastic cracking. Because of the straight design rather than a cone shape you may need to stop and remove things like cheese, takes about 2 seconds. Still very happy with this.

    Who knew shredding cheese could be so satisfying?

    I bought this attachment because I was hosting a party attended by someone with a potato allergy. Most pre-shredded cheeses have potato starch in them. Like all Kitchen Aide attachments it was easy to use and clean. And all my freshly shredded cheeses were delicious. I’ll never hand shred anything again.

    Individual blenders, food processors, and grinders work better than all-in-one components. Of course that is true with all products. It is like getting an all-in-one multi-tool; none of the tools work as well as one specifically designed for one purpose. With that said, this was purchased for the mixer and it is great for that purpose.

    Speedy Shredding

    Almost six months in, I've yet to use the slicer on this attachment. The shredders are great, though! Everything is quality-made, and the box is convenient for storage once the pieces are dry. The shredder attachments will tackle a brick of cheese in a matter of seconds, and cleanup is easy.

    This is a must have attachment for our kitchen aid stand mixer. We normally make egg roll stuffing and sausages. Cutting vegabables are done quickly and we also grind our meat..we had to buy a separate blade to get a The right grind we want from 3rd party and we also got an attachment to make sausages too. Overall it’s helped save time and money!

    Better than old version

    I had the previous version of this and it had a crack; hence I read I wasn't alone so it seems kitchen aid listens to the users. This version doesn't slice at an angle, but straight down. Now the downside, there isn't a super thin slicer blade like the old version. Kitchen Aid? You listening?

    Great cheese grater

    We use this mainly for cheese and it works well, the only problem is you waste cheese as some always slides between the grater insert and the housing unit and flattens out. If you do a lot you will have to pull out strips of cheese or it will eventually cause it to clog up.

    KITCHEN AID ROCKS

    I advise all Kitchen Aid attachments. This machine does it all. This replaced an item that I once had to suction to the counter and hand turn. It kept coming loose and I was tired of turning it on a few occasions. It was more cumbersome than the Kitchen Aid item. So. I can say. This works great.

    After much research, I decided on the professional series to make sure I had ample power to mix bread dough. This mixer doesn't disappoint! It has ample power to mix even the thicker doughs. I also like prefer the bowl lowering instead of the top lifting models because it requires less clearance height below upper cabinets.

    This attachement seems sturdy and well put together. It installs easily, and switching out the blades is simple and convenient. I haven't had much opportunity to put it through its paces. I have used the fine grater for parmesean cheese, and it made short work of it.
