Presto Salad Shooter Electric Slicer/Shredder
WASTE OF TIME
I ordered this to eliminate the hassle of slicing onions and other salad fixins. This is not the move. The food chamber is too small to accomodate the shape of the onion, bell pepper, etc. to slice it properly. You must hold the machine with one hand and the food guide with the other and apply the amount of pressure needed to get the thickness that you desire; this is not easy and you never get what you want. I ended up destroying a perfectly good onion, and my cucumbers never acheived the desired thickness, they went from paper thin to cardboard thin.

Great for shredding cheese for a recipe that call for it to be shredded.
Will probable find other uses for it also.

Love it (again) !!
I've had one for years but the plastic frame finally cracked grating some very hard cheese. I cannot live without this wonderful helping hand as I have chronic joint pain. So this is my second purchase of the Salad Shooter. I expect this one will last the rest of my life as the first one lasted about 20 years and that with almost daily use.

Love the Salad Shooter. Works well on most vegetables but I tried to slice a sweet potato (for chips) and the sweet potato is a bit too hard for the slicer. Otherwise, I'm very satisfied.

happily it works with the old slicer blades
Had my first salad shooter for 23 years before it gave up the ghost, so I tried this one of the same brand name. It is slightly different in design. The base is slightly different/taller which seems to be as good or better in ease of handling.
I use it frequently for carrots, potatoes, radishes, etc. cheese and celery are doable but not always as clean a cut. I have a mandolin which I use frequently also, but I use my salad shooter several times a week as it is easier to use with no danger of cutting myself.
Also, the previous blade cones are usable on this model which was a nice surprise, as this model only had two designs and my previous model had about 8.
The only thing I would like to see is a hook or an edge to wrap the cord more easily.

I have previously had a salad shooter for 20+ years and absolutely loved it. I did not know I could buy replacement parts only so I purchased a new one, plus additional cones. To my amazement, you can order replacement rings so now I have two. Will share with my daughters. The product is so useful in all my shredding, cutting, grating needs. You cannot go wrong with this product.

The only product I use to grate cheese
I have used Presto's Salad Shooter for years. It makes grating hard cheeses easy. No more cut knuckles! It is also great for slicing or shredding many veggies. The grating features makes preparing zucchini bread a breeze. So many uses and easy to clean & store. Love it!
