Using the Slicer/Shredder Attachment

How to Use the KitchenAid Slicer/Shredder Attachment

NOTE: For best results, feed only one item at a time into the feed tube (ex. carrot). Do not feed items into the feed tube by hand; always use the food pushers. If food remains in the Fresh Prep Slicer/Shredder attachment after running, turn the Stand Mixer to “0” (Off), remove the remaining items, and place back into the feed tube to shred or slice again.

  1. Place a large bowl under the Fresh Prep Slicer/Shredder attachment to catch food as it comes out.
  2. Cut food so that it fits within the feed tube.
  3. Turn the Stand Mixer to Speed 4, then use the appropriate food pusher to feed the food item into the feed tube.
  4. Push down on the release lever and pull out the blade, in order to change to a new blade.
