All I can say is "Don't waste your money!" I thought this sounded like it would be a really good alternative to dragging out my large food processor when I only wanted to prepare a small amount for one person. Not so! To start with, the slicer is fairly hard to assemble--holding down tightly on a really stiff button while using the other hand to slide the blade mechanism onto the base and all while trying to keep the whole thing upright. There are no good directions with this thing so, apparently, you learn by trial and error. I thought I would start with something fairly easy--chopping cabbage for slaw. This is where the trail and error part really kicks in. You have to cut the cabbage first into almost perfectly uniform small chunks. As you place them in the top of the slicer and press down with the holder, you also turn the handle so the blade assembly will chop your cabbage. Not so! The first little section of cabbage will chop, then the blade just keeps turning round and round until you stop and reposition the part of the cabbage left inside. You must keep doing this constantly. It took me longer to try to chop one small serving of cabbage and then disassemble, wash and store this thing than it would have taken me to do the whole thing with my larger food processor! Oh, well, live and learn!
Very easy to set up, breakdown and clean, but didn’t make my task easier made it harder. The suction never gripped to the counter. I struggled to keep the unit in place while I cranked the slicer drum to slice up a few small potatoes. Felt like I was using a kids toy. This is very small if I was not using fingerling potatoes, I would have to chop the potato to fit into the chamber. If I’m chopping, I might as well go ahead and slice them by hand. Not for a larger tasks. Was very excited to put away my mandolin and use this handy unit but disappointed in the end. Love the color.
Don't waste your money! The lock that secures the drum does not hold, it snaps into place but consistently comes apart and I''m left holding the handle. I have tested many times and the handle repeatedly falls off.
