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.
I loved this while it worked! I always shred all my cheese from a block for a fresher taste and less additives, so this was super helpful! It shredded fast (way faster than a box grater) and clean up was simple. BUT the cons to this are: 1: the handle constantly snaps off during use. Eventually this was the demise of my grater. It is made of cheap plastic (which I knew buying it), and eventually the hands wouldn’t even attach anymore. 2: the auction can be a bit tricky. And it’s very annoying when it keeps popping off the granite counter during use.
I’d love to buy again, but won’t because I know it just lasts a couple uses before the problems start.
Good design, terrible materials. It's nice that it did last a year and for that year, it was great. But this kind of plastic cannot hold up. Things like this do not need to be disposable. We don't need poorly made products that just end up in landfills. Make things to last and I'll pay a bit more for it. Anyway the mechanism in the handle broke so every time we try to turn the handle to grate cheese it pops off.
I thought this would be a good alternative to slicing vegetables by hand but this didn't work very well. Hard to apply consistent pressure on the vegetable and get even slices. My cucumbers came out in long thin pieces rather than evenly sliced circles. Don't think I'll use it again. Might even give it away so I don't have to store it. Food prep the old fashion way works best. Gadgets just take up space.
You have to press whatever you're trying to cut so hard, like i recommend if you have strong hands but for the average person so, just spend a bit more and get the one with a button. Like, i have bruises on my hands from having to press that hard to get the thing to cut.
I should have paid more attention to other reviews, although this one did sound better than other similar products. This grater is not for root vegetables - it was only a matter of time, although I was pretty careful, before the handle broke.
The very first time I used this... it was working amazingly... until it wasn't. the handle broke completely off and the device that secures it in (the little latch thing), broke as well so it could not be repaired. Awesome... said no one ever.
