Kitchen Aid Shredder Attachment
« on: April 05, 2014, 06:09:21 PM »
Some people have expressed interest in this in the past, so I snapped some pictures while I had mine out tonight. I don't use it very often but it does do a great job if you have a lot of cheese to grate. They come with three shredding cones to handle any chore.

Thanks for the picture! I've been considering getting one of these but I think my KitchenAid isn't long for this world. I just did a 6 pound block in the food processer fitted with a shredding disk yesterday...I'm not thrilled with the results (too fine) but it's better than hand grating!

Is there a cone with bigger holes? I love the thick shreds I get from a friend's pizza shop.

actually there are 4 cones, two for shredding and two for slicing, so you can get many different results. This was the fine shredding cone, I plan to experiment with the fine slicing cone in the future.

I appreciate the photos. i wanted to ask about clean up. Is it easy to clean or a hassle?

Sometime when i know that i will be making a lot of pizza, i will buy shredded cheese to save time.  Also, when I buy cheese from a Pizzeria, it is always shredded cheese because they do not have the time to shred it either.

My KA shredding attachment is easy to clean. I just take it apart and put each piece in the dishwasher. There's really only two pieces to clean; sometimes three. I could do it by hand pretty easily, I suppose, but I don't see any point in doing that, since I always shred more than enough to last longer than my dishwasher remains idle. I only ever use one of the four shredding/slicing "cones." The other three take up space in my hardest-to-reach cabinet area.

How do you like the Presto salad shooter?  Is the "professional" or regular one?  Pros/Cons?

I have perused a few threads here where it is mentioned but the desirability (or lack) does not seem clear to me.  I usually just shred with the baby version of a KitchenAid food processor..

Thanks,
Mitch

I have the Presto Professional, it is pretty loud -  so I only use it if I am making several pizzas. For one or two pizzas, I use a box shredder.

The shredder attachment is phenomenal!! How can anyone live without the scalloped potatoes produced by this attachment!!  ???

A always "volunteer" to run and clean the attachment if the wife says we are gonna have the scalloped taters!!

I "do" the onion for the recipe with the shredder just before I to the potatoes.

Add some home ground whole wheat, to die for!!  :drool:

I have to admit, we do drive it with a Hobart.

I borrowed my sister in-law's KA shredder attachment for a block of mozz. I honestly didn't like it...the shreds were very inconistent in size, some were very fine, almost powdery, and others were what I would call standard size. I'm going to stick with using the shredder disk for the food processor.

I've used one several times. It worked well, but the [cheese] shreds were smaller than I would like for pizza.
Pizza is not bread.
