Genius 9 Cup 8-Piece Slicer Shredder Food Prep System
Not the most efficient food prep
While the product is attractive, it is cumbersome to store, and not as easy to use as the demonstration on TV (or perhaps I'm just not skilled enough). I have to keep adjusting the food in slicer and if it's not positioned just right, it won't slice, shred, whatever. It is most used to shred hard cheese, like precorino-romano. Any type of vegetable slicing is just not worth the hassle.
Purchased this product just for grating cheese, which has been great, fast and easy to operate. Will be venturing out to other disks soon, I'm sure. My only problem is getting the devise to stay in one place, will look into using a rubber mate, that may help. It is easy to assemble and washing up was really quick. Would recommend this product.
Save your money! Worst product ever!
This is THE worst product I have ever purchased from QVC. It's cheaply constructed and I was not able to grate or slice a single item I attempted (cucumber & zucchini). The item was difficult to use and unstable. I will be sending this item back. I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing, it would have saved me a lot of headache.
I gave this as a wedding present for my Brother and new Sister-n-law. I didn't know what to get them as she said she had everything. I knew that every time she tried to peel or cut anything, she would cut her fingers. I thought this would be perfect so she wouldn't cut her hands anymore and my brother wouldn't have to look for added protein sources in his food. She was very happy she got this. Thanks QVC, you came through again. I have been an avid shopper since 1990 and love your products! Keep em coming and I guarantee I will keep on buying.
Works for me
I really like this product - much easier than my big food processor and easy to clean. I use it 1-3x week. The only problem is the waffle blade did not work. All the other blades work great. You do have to press down and with hard foods this can be awkward. If you have hand strength issues or arthritis - you will have trouble. It is a manual processor so it takes some elbow grease.
what a Pain!
Waste of your time. I tried and tried, a lot of work 4 poor performance. WIsh I could return it, too late.......
I was cleaning out my cupboards & saw this tucked away in the back.Been there for about 6 mmonths.I remember watching the guy work with it on TV.Thought wow I need that.Well I should have given it a secong thought & saaved myself 40 bucks.It does not grate cheese or anything.Really a mess .I did what the one gal said put it away & maybe try again.But I forgot it.Now it is off to the Goodwill.
Don't waste your money
I purchased this and didn't open it until several months later. MY mistake, if I had opened and used sooner I would have returned it ASAP. Had a very difficult time trying to shred hashbrowns, was not smooth. Too late for me to return, my bad.
Does not hold up
Several pieces have broken and it does not hold up to doing many jobs. Plus very hard to figure out what blade will do what. Plus very awkward to put all parts together to begin job.
Not as easy as you think
I will admit that I have only used mine so far with cheese but it is NOT as easy as it looks on TV. My main issue with it is that the plunger/holder is plastic and its so wobbly that its hard to hold steady pressure. In turn, I find then that the cheese ends up migrating all to one side and that makes it even harder to hold down with one hand. I will keep it just so I can try other things in it but I am really not impressed with this at all.
A REAL TIME SAVER
I personally love this product. Shreds in a jiff. It is easy to use and easy to clean. I gave this shredder 4 stars because of the plastic material used. I can't see this product lasting many years especially if accidentally dropped on a hard surface.
Love it love it
This is the best product that you can buy. Coleslaw, anything that you can slice.
