The first thing I noticed was how heavy the attachment was. It's not a lightweight piece of equipment! So my first concern was about the stress the weight would place on the mixer. I'm still worried about that after several hours of use. Like any of the KitchenAid attachments it's a little noisy when running and there is some vibration. I attribute that to the causing what some reviewers said about the attachment 'falling off' the mixer. I don't believe that's an issue if one keeps in mind that vibration in any piece of equipment tends to loosen fasteners over time, particuarly friction secured fasteners like KitchenAid uses to hold their attachments to the mixers. My advice? Check the fastener for any sign of loosening if you're going to use it for a lengthy period of time.
So on to the tests. First was a twenty pound bag of russet potatoes, peeled and sliced to fit the hopper. I found varying advice on the speed setting. What i discovered was that in general the harder the item to be sliced and diced the faster you want to set the speed. Potatoes took about a seven to eight setting while larger carrots I set to ten. Apples worked fine at lower settings. Tomatoes (I used Roma) worked well and seemed to do better at a medium speed. That surprised me at first, I was expecting them to do better at a lower speed because of their firmness, but I think it's because of the skin. I did not try any skinless tomatoes - that might be a test for another time. Cucumbers were best at a low setting (Note: I peeled the cucumbers in my testing and the softer they were the worse the results - English cucumbers worked the best for dicing). Another thing that I found interesting was that i got the best results when dicing if I DID NOT use the pusher to force the vegetables into the hopper - letting their own weight and the angled blade pull them in worked just fine. A big WARNING - don't try to use the attachment to dice meat - that was a disaster! I have not tried cheese yet and if (when) I do I'll add to this review.
So the dicing aspects of the attachment worked better than i anticipated. Since that was my primary reason for purchasing it I was very happy.
I moved on to the slicing blades and was interested to note the adjustable thickness setting on the slicing blade (KitchenAid calls it their ExactSlice System). That's an interesting touch and i wonder how long that's going to last. Endurance is just as important to me as functionality since I tend to keep my technology until it expires! I would have preferred a metal mechanism, but that would have necessitated a price increase that probably would have made the overall cost a nonstarter. It worked fine as did the shredding and julienne discs. I typically prefer my Cuisinart for those functions (so many more blades and options) but if I'm going to do dicing as well as slicing and julienne cuts the KitchenAid is my tool of choice.
Next was cleanup. How labor intensive was that going to be? I found that cleanup was actually easier than for my Cuisinart. I should note that i clean my tools immediately after use, no matter which brand or device. I've learned my lesson from letting debris dry in hard-to-reach places! The KitchenAid came apart as easily as it went together. Most of the pieces came clean in just a spray of warm water and a quick dip into a soapy bath and rinse. A nice scrub brush gets almost anything off easily and KitchenAid has thoughtfully provided a small tool for clearing any food stuck in the dicing grid so you don't end up with bloody fingers. I also like that there is an insert that lifts out to protect the mechanism from any food particles or fluids that go around with the blades. That was a feature I hadn't really considered important until it came to cleanup - then that made things a breeze.
The included storage case is nice, but I have two concerns. The first one is a little picky, but I had a difficult time in getting the blades back into the case so it would close properly. Turns out that the adjustable thickness slicing has to be in placed into the storage case with what I'll call the plastic sweeping tab rotated so it's located to the right of the case or it interferes with the closure. A picky concern, true, but I was beginning to think I'd lost my mind when the case wouldn't close the first time. Second, the location of the hinge for the case means that in the open position it does not rest on the surface, but is slightly elevated. I've seen the same design on other cases and the failure mechanism is when left in that position for too long or if there's an impact it damages the hinges. A very small design change would have alleviated the possibility with zero additional cost in either materials or fabrication.
Overall I think this one's a winner!
Concerns? Well, like all bladed kitchen tools how sharp they are tends to make a huge difference. I am concerned about how well the dicing grid retains its edge since there's really no way to resharpen it. I didn't look into the cost of replacement, but i suspect it's not cheap! The other blades? Well, they seem to be the same quality as the Cuisinart's, and I've used those blades for at least ten years without issue.
Having said that, I love it. The slice thickness lever makes choosing your slice thickness easily and I love the dicing feature! I make pico de gallo quite often and I was used to dicing my Roma tomatoes and red onions by hand. It took a while. Last night I made some pico using the dicing kit and it was the most evenly diced pico I've ever made!
Also, I read a negative review from someone who didn't like the dicing kit and even claimed that his KitchenAid stopped when he tried to dice harder items like onions and carrots. I don't agree. It handled the firm red onions I put through it with no problem whatsoever. I think that other reviewer's issue was not reading the manual. You want your KitchenAid on a speed of 4-5 for SOFT fruits and veggies - but all the way up to 10 for harder fruits and veggies. I'm betting the guy whose machine stopped didn't increase the motor speed for the harder items.
I'm looking forward to using this attachment a lot for things like pies (dicing the fruit), potatoes O'Brien and potatoes au-gratin, salsa, grated cheese, etc. etc. I would recommend this product to anyone with a KitchenAid mixer.

For the occasional light shredding work, or slicing, it's great, but the real reason to get this is for dicing. I was able to dice up an eggplant, zucchini and some peppers in about 2 minutes, with minimal cleanup afterwards. The diced pieces are a little smaller than I'd like, but for the ease of use and speed and lack of personal effort, I'm not complaining. No regrets!
I am very disappointed!
Yo estaba buscando algo para picar y rallar (no tanto para rebanar) y que no ocupara mucho espacio para guardarlo. La calidad de todas las piezas es buena y las navajas y cuchillas parece que van a durar un buen rato. Como todo procesador, tiene muchas piezas que hay que saber armar y luego hay que lavar o limpiar pero así son todos los procesadores.
El picador funciona mejor de lo que se pueden imaginar, simplemente pica y muchas veces no hay que empujar la comida por el alimentador, solita va cayendo. El tamaño de los cubos es de 8mm por lado y salen perfectos. Yo he picado cebolla, zanahorias, calabazas, jícamas, pepinos, queso manchego (debe estar muy frio), jamón y salchichas sin problema. Los tomates también se pican bien pero no deben estar muy maduros porque se aplastan y salen sin forma los pedazos. La boca del alimentador si es algo chica pero el proceso de picar es tan rápido que vale la pena cortar las cosas a la medida para acabar en un dos por tres!
El rallador en fino o grueso funciona bien y ahi si no hay mucha ciencia. Hemos rallado zanahorias, calabazas y sobre todo queso. El queso debe ser duro (como Parmesano) o estar casi congelado para el rallado sea limpio y no se "embarre" el queso en el disco.
La función de rebanar es la que menos nos interesaba pero sí la hemos usado y funciona bien. El tamaño del alimentador limita mucho su utilidad. No puedes rebanar tomates para las hamburguesas o un pepino para la ensalada porque hay que partir el tomate en 2 o 4 para quepa y el pepino a la mitad (a lo largo) para obtener mitades o cuartos de rebanada normal. El hecho de que puedas modificar el grosor de la rebanada es muy bueno y util para cosas mas chicas como apio, zanahorias, salchichas, cebolla (en mitades), etc.
Trae un disco para hacer cortes juliana que creo es el que menos sirve. Todo sale como si fuera rallado y como el alimentador es chico, el largo de la juliana está limitado y no hace mucho sentido.
Este accesorio de la batidora no tiene un depósito en el que haya cuchillas para triturar, moler, amasar, etc. Si estas buscando algo que haga eso y además rebane y ralle, vas a tener que comprar un procesador completo. Yo compré un Food Chopper de 3.5 tasas de la misma marca y con eso tengo para picar finamente cebolla, nueces, hierbas, etc.
Hasta ahora sólo lo he usado para picar en cubitos de manzana y pera, y quedan muy bien, ahorra mucho tiempo si haces grandes cantidades.
