Genius 9 Cup 8-Piece Slicer Shredder Food Prep System
I purchased this as a gift for my husband for Christmas. I purchased it because it stated on the actual show that slice thickness was adjustable. When my husband opened it and read the instructions there was no information at all on how to make a slice thicker or thinner. On top of that, the show made it look very easy to use, but in actuality you have to be a contortionist to use it. You have to hold the hopper cover and push down on it while doing something else. He said send it back. He said the mandolin that we already have is much easier to use.
Does not work as demonstrated
This is probably the worst product I have ever purchased on QVC. It does not work as demonstrated and I was so frustrated trying to use it that I threw the entire thing in the garbage. Don't waste your money on this product. If I hadn't thrown the original packaging away I would have returned it.
Happy with this purchase
Truly enjoy using my slicer/shredder. It's easy to operate, is compact and a wonderful convenience to have in the kitchen.
terrific for your family
i brought this product for me but especially for my sister that has carpal tunnel and she love's to cook when i saw her chopping w/ a knife she never could cut thing's up without asking for help but when she used this slicer she's just smiling and slicing away without anyone helping her so thank you for making this
Save your money
This product is so inferior in so many ways. I am returning it. Too bad I have to pay for shipping just for trying it. It is flimsy, the blade doesn't fit well and will not turn the entire way around.
Did not work as shown. Would not recommend anyone buy it.

couldn't wait to get this machine. Was very disappointing after using it. The legs under the lid drop down and it jams in the blade. Tried several times and thought I was doing something wrong. Would not recommend. it. I sent it back.
Would Not Work
I am too old to try to get this piece of kitchen equipment to work. It was HARD to turn. I was so afraid the piece you push down on would break. One must cut everything very small to get it to fit into this. The opening is a strange shape to begin with so I had a really hard time with a potato. I suppose it needs softer foods to work well.
Worst Purchase from Chef Tony
I didn't pay attention to the poor reviews given on this product...should have. This item would work great for men with giant hands, but women are most likely to use this. I started with cucumbers, and they were a disaster. Tried other soft veggies - same results. The slot where you put items to cut is kidney shaped therefore cutting food to fit is tricky. I am returning this ....sorry Tony, but you need to go back to the drawing board.
my tomatoes took a real beating with the recommended dark green blade....left a lot to be desired on the presentation. Something tells me you need to lot of research on your own for what blades are best and forget what the receipe book tells you!
LOVE IT...LOVE IT
The Slicer Shredder Food Prep system has made making my own hash browns a piece of cake....Hash Browns from raw or baked potatoes are prepared in a flash...Salads are prepared quickly and they look as if they were made professionally....Yes I would recommend it to a friend. Clean up and storing the system is easy peasy!!!!! Thank you Genius this product has hit a home run in my kitchen!!!
It took me awhile to decide to use this - I have a KA food processor which I love & use. But I also love FAST salad and veggie prep when I'm short on time at dinner, or making my lunch for work at 6 am in the morning! I love it for making fast salads; or quick shredding of slaw veggies, or my favorite quick prep of pickled vegetables. Sometimes my food processor is full of veggies & I need shredded cheese or a quick veggie topping. Or I've made dough in the food processor & I want coleslaw, or shredded veggies, or a salad. The blades are easy to put in place; it's easy to use the bowl; everything cleans up quickly. I'm pretty happy with this.
