Genius Nicer Dicer Plus 10-piece Multi-Chopper
Smaller than you think
I ordered this after seeing it demonstrated on In The Kitchen With David. It looked like it was just what I needed to slice and dice. I previously purchased the other Genius Slicer but returned it when I saw this one. I was greatly disappointed when this one came. It is much smaller than it appeared to be on TV. The chopper would not even hold 1/2 medium onion so I had to cut the onion in quarters. Even then, the chopper would not chop through the onion. The slicer was so small that I was not able to slice a medium tomato. The grater was also very small and much too fine. I am returning this product and repurchasing the Genius Slicer. I was greatly disappointed in this product.
Great once you figure it out
I was a little leery after seeing so many negative reviews, but mine arrived yesterday and I was anxious to give it a try. The instructions are helpful but don't cover some things you need to know. I have other similar devices for chopping and dicing and such but these seemed to offer additional possibilities. The slicer works well, but the tomato slices are very thin, although they will work. The cucumber slices are perfect. The various chopper blades seem to work well once you figure out how to take out the "partial blade cover." I'm a big guy with good heft, so I don't have a problem pressing down all the way. Probably didn't need it but it will get good use in this time of year when there is so much fresh produce and fresh fruit. It would be nice if there were variable slicer blades, but I guess at this price point you can't have everything. Definitely a keeper for me.
I was excited to receive my Multi-Chopper, but very disappointed when I used it to chop zucchini. It simply does not work as demonstrated on QVC. The zucchini (young and tender) got stuck in the square blades. I had to manually push it through each square to clear it out. That's no time saver to me. This is a very basic, uncomplicated kitchen gadget. It should work as smoothly and easily as demonstrated, regardless of whether it's sitting on the counter, table or kitchen island. This is absolutely not worth the price and is going back.
Having problem using the chopper.try this little trick. Instead of using it on you counter top use your TABLE to chop. You will have better leverage to push down, because your table is lower. Also do it quickly.
It works for me. Good Luck
love this chopper
This dicer is so nice and easy to use and clean up. I have had mine for a few years and use it all the time epically for onions for hot dogs. I am the unofficial onion cutter for church functions. I have used this dicer for veggies, meats and cheese with no problems. Great wedding or shower gift.
You should add all the above in who I would buy this for that is how much I love this dicer.
THIS DOESN'T WORK FOR ME
I have ordered many many things from QVC and had no problems but this just doesn't work for me. The leaver just won't completely close and the vegetable that is in the dicer with not completely go through the blade. I have tried it every possible way without results. My sister is also a QVC'er and she also tried to get it to work. It's useless to me and has been more than 30 days since I received it. I see how wonderful it works on tv and others give great reviews so I think I got a lemon.
Convenient, Useful, Sanitary Kitchen Gadget
Just got my Dicer Plus out again recently to use. Actually put it away quite awhile ago and forgot about it. I used it a lot when I first got it and will now keep it in a cupboard that I use frequently. It is very useful, the grates are very sharp--be careful!-I like the mandolin slicer and the grater attachment the most. I am sometimes leery of using really hard veggies like carrots and potatoes to dice and cut up--I feel like it will break but I have had no problems. When cutting softer veggies or fruits like tomatoes, peppers, peaches,etc. sometimes they end up partially smashed and they get caught in the blades or the skins don't cut all the way through. So I try to use things that are hard/firm instead of very ripe. I love the storage container especially when I am chopping things up ahead of time. This is great if you need to cut up a lot of things or if you want everything the same size. More sanitary than a chopping board, too.
Works super don't know how I got a long with out one
DOESN'T WORK FOR ME
I HAVE HAD THIS ITEM FOR OVER A YEAR, AND THE ONLY PART THAT CONSISTENTLY PERFORMS AS DESCRIBED IS THE MANDOLIN SLICER. I HAVE WATCHED THE PRESENTATIONS SEVERAL TIMES TO SEE WHAT I MIGHT BE DOING WRONG, BUT IT ISN'T ME. I HAVE SLICED MY VEGETABLES DOWN TO SMALL PIECES AND THEY STILL DON'T PUSH THROUGH EASILY. MOSTLY THEY JUST GET STUCK. I COULD NOT BE MORE DISAPPOINTED IN THIS PRODUCT.
I have had this for a few months now and I hardly use it. The plastic parts are not as sturdy as I hoped for. The cheese grater cracked after only two uses. I'm glad I kept my old cheese grater. At least it slices potatoes great for scallop potatoes...which is one of my favorite dishes.
Not what I expected
I was very excited after watching the presentation for this. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen chopping. I could not get this to work with ease the way the presentation was showing. It was more of a waste of time then helping me. I didn't give up since it was a new tool. I am yet to use this the way I expected it to work out.
Don't buy this!
Unfortunately I purchased this item and didn't use it right away. I've tried using it three different times and not once did it perform AT ALL! Total waste of money. Very disappointed QVC would sell this.
