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 bought this because we are eating keto now and my old food processor does a terrible job of grating cauliflower and makes a huge mess. This drum slicer does a great job making cauliflower rice quickly and with hardly any clean up time. We just love that cauliflower rice. It also chops walnuts well. I use the coarse shredder drum for both of these. The blades are very dull, and the slicer blade is pretty useless for me. I prefer my V mandolin for slicing. It just mangled zucchini. It can cut carrots, but the blade is so dull (I can run my finger along the blade without the slightest danger) that you really have to turn the handle hard and it popped apart a couple of times until I got the knack of how to turn it. Nothing like that happens with cauliflower and walnuts with the coarse shredding drum. It should do OK with potatoes, but we are not eating them on the keto diet.
If you want to grate potatoes or cauliflower or nuts, then this will do the job. I am happy with it because it does what I bought it for.
This product works great. I love using it. Its easy to clean everything can go in the dishwasher. The only downside is the bottom is smooth. It should have rubber or something so it stays put. But its an easy fix. I still live it and use it often. Was fast and easy to grate carrots for my carrot cake. I would recommend this to anyone who cooks or bakes a lot
Ok it's not a food processor. Lots of plastic. The grating barrels are lethal! Very sharp. It's easy to put together and take apart. Easy enough to clean. I've grated Parm and Ramano cheeses with both grating blades. If you cut them up into chunks it does better and doesn't "stall" or jam. I thought I'd just do what I needed for recipes as I went. But it grated that block of cheese so fast I just did the whole thing and put the extra cheese in a container. The suction thing on the bottom. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Probably the type of counter tops I have. Still works. If you man handle this thing it will break. If you have things that are 20 years old you'll be fine. If things just disintegrate in your hands like my husband this is not the grater for you! I found a container that holds all the barrels so they aren't rolling around in the cupboard. I like it. Glad I bought it and heaven help me I think it's kind of cute!
This has made shredding veggies and cheeses so much easier for me! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it does not suction to the counter or anything really. I tried to suction it to the counter, the stove, a plastic and a wooden cutting board but it refuses to suction down. It still works great though... I haven't used the slicer drum yet but I have shredded carrots, potatoes, hard cheeses and soft cheeses with no issues at all. I was really excited when I tried the soft cheese in it for the first time and it worked beautifully. It doesn't mush up the cheese and it is crazy easy to clean. I have even recommended this to my friends already because it is that awesome.
We Love your slicer. It feels good using it. It does a great job. We use it mostly for grating cheeses. It is easy to clean, and the parts are easy to assemble and disassemble. It is solid and stable once set up, and the suction base holds it on the counter top securely. The color is cool too! Thank You.
Decent product for its price point...Product is plastic (except for the drums which are easily bendable tin-alloy). The handle where it attaches to the body isnt the best design (and my biggest GRIPE). You really need to baby that handle and NOT bare down hard on cranking the handle or you'll snap it off. But at its price point, it does exactly what I expect it to do. I WOULD NOT buy this thing if you plan to use it daily or weekly. Find a more Commercial option. But for an item I grab and use maybe 4 times a year, and didn't cost me +$100 in commercial kitchen construction...its a decent product.
It is cute and would be a great gift for someone! It is very light, but for the deal you get that is to be expected. It took both my husband and I to actually grate the block of cheese because the base kept moving around and almost tipping over. Once we got the block started it went much easier and didn't make me want to throw it out! LOL Overall a good value for the money if that is a concern and be a cute gift!
This purchase is exactly what I expected and am pleased with it. This makes cutting veggies efficient and easy. The suction works very well. Once I engage the function the base does not move :-) This product is easy to disassemble and clean. There is one con, the body is plastic and I wish it was made of 'heavier' material. Overall, extremely satisfied.
