After reading reviews on this product and watching a video on the internet of someone slicing and shredding different items, I decided to purchase the item and see what I thought myself. Like many other reviews, I did not have success with slicing vegetable but I have been happy with how it shreds blocks of cheese (this was my main reason for purchasing). As for the quality of the unit itself, I am not having any issues with it cracking or breaking as other reviews have mentioned. I also have not had any problems with the parts rusting after washing as one review mentioned, but I only hand wash all the parts and make sure to lay them out to completely dry off before storing them. So if you are looking to mostly shred cheese (and like me will not use a hand grater due to a past incident with my finger) I recommend this product.

I tried shredding baby carrots yesterday. Some pieces of carrots got stuck between the white housing and the round shredder disk. What did get through the shredder disk were quite shredded, though. I'm concerned about the food waste. I also had large chunks of carrots mixed in with the shredded carrots in the finished product. The white plastic housing held the orange color of the carrots and no amount of washing could get the stain off. This was my first use so I was surprised that no other reviewers mentioned staining or material remaining between the white plastic housing and the round shredder. I will keep working with it, but may return.

I recently purchased my kitchenaid... bought the shredder attachment right away. It does okay with cheese...Does much better after it has been placed in the freezer, as suggested.... Tried to make Cole slaw,and I had to push so hard on the lever to get the cabbage shredded.... Tried to slice onions.... That was horrible... IT MADE NOTHING BUT ONION JUICE!! In my opinion, it should slice through stuff like butter... not turn it into a gloppy, sloppy mess.... what a disappointment.... All my life I have wanted a KA mixer and tools, for such disappointments and hassle....HOW SAD! I should post the videos....
