People say Innomoon is really similar to Kitchenaid.
Quality for price
I ordered this because I wanted to be able to shred my own cheese on my KitchenAid. Pro: price,quality, ease of use , dishwasher safe Con: none
Great for the price
Not kitchenaid brand or quality but does the job and and less expensive than the brand name. It’s adequate for my needs because it’s not used everyday.
Better than a bulky food processor.
After shredding my fingers trying to make carrot cake using those handheld shredders, I finally caved and decided to give this a try. I debated getting this or a food processor, but a food processor is such a pain because of all the parts you have to clean and it takes up too much space. This is easy. You pick the part you need, snap it into the connector, and snap that into the Kitchenaid. It goes quickly and you only have two small parts to wash. They look and feel a little cheap but they’re quality enough and great for the price. Just make sure you either have someone helping you to catch the food or have the Kitchenaid bowl (or another large bowl) in front of the Kitchenaid, simply due to the design. It’s not this manufacturer’s fault; it’s just the way Kitchenaid designed their appliance.
Good quality and convenient attachments
I say they are good quality, because I have another off-brand Kitchenaid attachment and it is so-so (still functional, but you can see the quality is not that good). I can't say this is great, because the rotary blade/shredder steel is a little thin. I wish they are made from thicker steel. I ruined the fine grater (and the housing because it got deformed) when I grated a hard, aged gouda cheese. I contacted the customer service, and they replaced the grater and the housing right away. Great customer service! Lesson learned, just be careful when using it. Last notes: It shredded the standard gouda cheese well. Overall, I like how it save space and my cooking time.
Solid, handy and the usual Kitchenaid quality .All we needed.
Well worth it
I was unsure about buying a generic brand for my KitchenAid mixer but we absolutely love it. We have only used it for carrots to shred and it works wonderful. Super easy to take apart and clean way quicker than shredding carrots by hand. I would definitely recommend and wish we had gotten one sooner
I've only used this to shred zucchini so far, but man, it's a time and arm saver! Prior to this attachment, I would hand grate or use a spiralizer. For overripe, large zucchinis, I quartered and removed seeds before processing. The skins can get stuck around the blade, but it's easy to get them out because they bob up and down as the blade spins. The flesh can also get stuck in the barrel as others mentioned, but you can easily remove it with a spoon without shutting off the machine. I processed well over 100 cups with a Kitchenaid Artisan and this is still shredding like it's brand new!
I’ve had my KitchenAid mixer for years, but never purchased any cool accessories. I bought this slicer/shredder primarily for making potato pancakes. My husband shreds the potatoes by hand. I bought this for him to use and now he’s mad because I didn’t buy it sooner. Needless to say he was very happy with the way it shredded the potatoes. I have also used it to slice vegetables for soups and it works like a charm. I can’t wait to use it to shred the zucchini from my garden.
I had been using a tabletop suction cup grater/slicer which worked reasonably well, but the suction would always lose its grip on my counter, so I had to chase after it. Also, I could only fit a short bowl under the unit to catch product. I saw the reviews for this non name brand slicer grater and decided to take a chance. While it worked well for my first project, grating potatoes, I was unable to release the blade from the housing. I had to remove the housing from my kitchen aid, clean the interior or the blade, but it still wouldn’t release the blade. Both my husband and I worked on trying to push up on the release button and somehow grab the grating blade and finally got it to release. Looking inside the housing and the outside of the blade, there was quite a bit of shredded potato, apparently holding the two parts together like glue. While it is unlikely I will need to release the blade while it's mounted to the machine to switch for another blade, I would have liked the blade to have released when I used the release lever. I did follow directions, but the unit had other plans. It is easy to clean and did get the desired results, so it's a keeper. At least I don’t have to chase the unit as it skittered across my counter. And I use the KitchenAid's bowl to catch the results.
Overall, not a bad unit for the price.
I've only used the unit once and that was for grating hard parmesan cheese using the fine shredding cone. It got the job done and the results were what I wanted. However, the metal cones are on the thin side so if you try to force food down the chute too hard and fast, I'm sure you will warp them. They're not flimsy but no where near as solid as the old KitchenAid cones from my old unit. I also recommend using speed 6-7 rather than 4 as advised. Go slow, apply gentle pressure, and it will work just fine. (Remember, it's still much faster than by hand using a cheese grater.) I like the easy cleanup and another nice feature is how easy the cones attach to the unit. I think you can't find anything better for the price. Be sure to hand wash only.
