To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It cuts grapes, cherry tomatoes and other small fruits but not in a consistent manner as you would like. It still does the job and depending on the hardness of the item you can run them twice by the machine to achieve smaller pieces. You need to be quick in moving the blade to avoid squishing the fruit. I still like it to make salads faster but would be more careful cutting fruit for babies as grapes for example may stay almost at the regular size if not ran twice by it. It’s really easy to clean.
That's I thought, but who doesn't have issues with slicing cherry tomatoes. Tomatoes need to be fairly firm though or you get mush. Good gadget to add to your kitchen if you use cherry tomatoes regularly
This cuts my time in half, literally! The only thing I don't like is that sometimes the grapes don't line up correctly so the cut is not actually half way down the middle. I sometimes have to go back and cut them manually or stick them back in the tube to cut them again. Other than that, it's super easy to use!
The Progressive zip slicer makes cutting up large quantities of grapes or tomatoes easy. The tool is easy to use and clean, making food prep much simpler. The blade is totally encased, making is safe for even my elementary age daughter to use. One issue is that the tube is quite large and the food items can shift around prior to slicing, making the cuts not as uniform as some may like. Cherry tomatoes seem to work best, as grapes are smaller and tend to roll around more. Some of my grapes were sliced unevenly, defeating the purpose of using the slicer. The larger the grapes, the better for using this tool.
This slicer works perfectly! It cuts right through grapes or cherry tomatoes. Even when I filled the entire tube, the blade went right through the entire batch. Very convenient for salads. Also very nice if you're like me and clumsy when it comes to knives and fingers...
This item is user-friendly and easy to clean. It gets 5 stars for functionality. It loses one star only because I wish there were more things you could slice with it -- other fruits or veggies. If anyone has experimented with other food, please comment!
I like it! I sliced a whole bunch of red grapes at the same time for a chicken salad - what a time saver. Haven't tried it with tomatoes yet but I'm sure it'll work beautifully on that too. This was larger and sturdier than I expected. Good purchase!!
