Genius Speed Slicer Plus with Storage Container
First Time Purchase at QVC
I had never purchased merchandise at QVC-my first time purchase was a great buy-I love my Speed Slicer-easy to use-easy to clean-no more cuts on my fingers-no more mess in the sink-instructions should have a picture of the blade cover for safe removal and replacement on the blades-only issue for me.
Slices vegies with no effort. blade is very sharp.be sure to use guard. On my way to buy to buy more band aids
Reordering What I Returned
I returned this only because I saw the Genius Nicer Dicer demonstrated on In The Kitchen With David. I thought it would be more useful because of the additional chopping and slicing options. That thought was a mistake so I am reordering this slicer today. It may not have all the options but at least I will have a decent size slicer. I have another dicer which I will keep and use in conjunction with this one. This is a great size and will slice medium to large vegetables which is what I mostly use. I also like the safety features this slicer has. Oh well, we learn by our mistakes!
A Kitchen requirement.
This item will increase anyone's performance and save time without the hassle. Cooking always takes time and management which increases tension and aggravation, the ease, speed and excitement one will enjoy of just dealing without really dealing. It's fun and makes cooking fun, so go for it and enjoy your new found play thing. It's like being a kid all over again and having your favorite toy, you wont want to stop playing instead of having that dreaded cooking attitude. You'll find yourself searching for new and more exciting recipes to show off you new found creativity in preparation and cooking. So bring on the Holidays, family gathering's or game days and all other function it's play time and I can't wait.
Love this item!
I can't say enough about this product. I recently bought 75 ears of corn at our Farmers Market and before I bought this slicer, I had to cut off the kernels by hand, which was a pain. I went through those 75 ears of corn so fast it was unreal. The attached container was wonderful for catching all the corn as it was cut off. I also tried slicing tomatoes and cucumbers and onions. It was a breeze and such even slices too. I love this slicer. I must add that it is very important to be careful when using this slicer as the blade is extremely sharp.
it 's okay
have it and it is one of the products we have in our pantry - but hardly use it - I spose it is not what I thought it would be sad to say
Knobs won't turn to adjust blade
I am so disappointed with this - what a waste of money! Right out of the box, the knob to adjust the blade thickness won't turn - I've even tried with some success to use pliers. Not at all as easy as the demonstration. The blade is very sharp and the knob to raise and lower the julienne blades works OK but again, not as easy as shown.
I have used a mandolin for years. But I had to pop in a different blade for each thickness and cutting myself was always a threat. I am really excited about the dials and the small container for smaller individual items!!
I was hoping that the Nicer Dicer could be used interchangeably with this unit, any chance of that:
Chef Tony, keep on cooking. You have great products for the home cook without the professional knife skills.
Right out of the box.... Purchased two. Before I could even use it both have the same problem. The lid will not lock onto the bin. Thought it was a fluke but the same problem with both units. If something as simple as the lid doesn't function correctly, doesn't inspire confidence in the rest of the product. Checked other reviews while it shows the majority are favorable... the first 10 I read 4 were negative.
I wasn't sure when I ordered this that it would be sharp enough to slice good slices. This is extremely sharp and slices easily. But be careful when you use it ...it will slice fingers too (Yes this is from experience). I didn't think that this would be as good as it is. I would recommend this to everyone.
I bought this slicer dec 2013 and have used it about 6 times cutting summer sausage. The V blade is totally dull now. Won't cut butter. Blade looks like it went thru the VietNam war. Can't even find any warranty info any where. Save your money DO NOT BUY.......
Great all around product
Love it Easy to use and so convenient that it can be used over your own bowl or with the container provided. Another great benefit is the little container that affixes to the top and will slice olives, garlic and little cherry tomatoes!! VERY SHARP... be careful.. :) I also bought this for my brother and he LOVES it too...
