Genius 9 Cup 8-Piece Slicer Shredder Food Prep System
this grater is cheaply made. It is all cheap plastic with the exception of the disks and part of the handle. The bowl is so fragile I doubt it will last more than a few uses. The parts will out live the bowl and without the bowl it's useless.
Loved the slicer for about a month, then after using yesterday found out it was cracked on the top. Too bad it wasn't made with better, thicker plastic. It was great for awhile, now, not so much.
I purchased this Slicer and gave the other 3 I had away!! this slicer/Shredder is all you need and it works so easy! I love it. Here after I'll just go to QVC to begin with they have the best products.
Don't believe the one star reviews!
OMG, to think I was not going to order this due to the reviews I read who had given this a 1 or 2 star...I always read reviews. I panicked and just order without reading the reviews then I went to read them. I was about to cancel my order due to what I read by a few people who expressed how hard it was and how much pressure you need to use to work the shredder.....however I remembered I could send it back and I ordered one anyway!
Well, to start off I am very disabled and weak so those 1 and 2 stars made me question my purchase. I just used it last night I thought I feel like making egg salad...then it hit I just got this shredder so why don't I use it?
I was in complete shock it took me less than 30 seconds to shred 6 jumbo eggs!!!! I was so happy and the salad came out the best I ever made in over 30 years, I feel like a pro now. I am so happy I can't wait to do other things in it like waffle fries. I know the eggs are soft so maybe I need to try a harder vegetable to see if it takes a lot of pressure to use.
I did not even use the bowl last night it was too late and I was to lazy but it went smoothly, but it you will love it.
difficult to use
I have arthritis in my hands and thought this would be helpful to use.
It was not. Could not squeeze the handle together enough to close it. My cucumber was
not nice slices; but a chopped mess. The bowl did not stay put even though it had non
slip spots on the bottom. It would skid around the counter while I was trying to get a
grip on the handle and turn the crank with the other. Will box up and return.
I need something that will be easier on my handicap.
i use less pressure turning the spindle on this grater than when I use a regular grater. It doesn't irritate the carpal tunnel.
P.S. Wish the compartment where you place your food was larger though, I.e. to fit a large potato.
I read the reviews and all most didn't buy. Then knowing how easy it is to return thought I would try . I love it . Was so happy when I grated my cheese. Would recommend .
Simple to use. Fast, easy clean up. Would definitely recommend this product!
Not so Good
Received this product yesterday and was very disappointed. I never could get it to do anything as it is too hard to push . I got my neighbor to try and she also good not push hard enough to get it to slice or shred. Will be returning in a few days. It also is not sturdy.
Kitchen prep work made easy !!
This slicer/shredder makes prep work in the kitchen a breeze !! Easy to clean and easy to use.... Love it !!
When I saw this on QVC I just had to have it. We do a lot of camping and generally a lot of places do not have electricity so this looked to be a great sub for my food processor. The day it arrived, I could not wait to give it a try. I was so dissapointed. The blades kept hanging up in the plastic handle. At first we thought we were doing something wrong, so we kept trying to seat the blades and making sure the handle was in properly. Such a waste of time. We ended up with plastic pieces in the food, and the blades just kept jamming up. Not happy with this one. Sending back with a quickness.
