K63841 - KitchenAid Slicer & Shredder Mixer Attachment
Works great and not hard to assemble
I have been wanting this attachment for some time so when I saw it on QVC I decided to treat myself. I do have a food processor, but needed more variety in shredding and slicing. When the item arrived, my eyes glazed over, being very un-mechanically inclined, I thought I wouldn't figure out how to assemble it. The directions were very clear and I didn't even have to call hubby over to help. The first thing I did was to make potato chips....they were great. Go figure! I sprinkled them with smoky seasoned salt and they were wonderful. Now to grate hard cheeses like parmesan. Anyone who has a stand mixer should have one of these.
KitchenAid Slicer & Shredder Mixer Attachment
This is the second Slicer & Shredder Mixer Attachments that I have purchased in probably twenty years. I wore out the first mixer attachments with lots of hard use and I'm sure I will have the same luck with the second attachments.
Best Gift Ever
My husband bought me the K5SS over 20 years ago plus attachments! I use it for EVERYTHING and it's great. The housing on my grater/shredder is finally starting to wear out ( when I shred cheese or potatoes I do 5-10 lbs at a time!!!)
Anyone who likes to cook at all should definately have one. The new colors are great too! My only color choice all those years ago was white!
so many uses
I have used these for tons of stuff - from making bread crumbs, to grating carrots, to slicing potatoes for "from scratch" augratin to preparing foods for dehydrating & canning.
I do find that some things, like dried fruit & softer vegies, tend to stick to the outside of the grater and you have to stop every once in a while to clean it off.
and it can be rather messy if you aren't expecting it - it tends to toss stuff everywhere from the front ... I wish KA would develope a directing sheild for the front (this is the only reason it doesn't get all 5 stars)
but I don't need a food processor with this attachment - it does that part of the job for me.
A Must Have
This attachment is so easy to install and use - never again will I cringe at having to shred cheese!
I waited a long time to get my first KitchenAid mixer & I totally love it. Now I have started to add attachments. This is the best way to save space along with having the best. Just love all of it. Recommend highly.
