The packaging for this set is so quirky and attractive, I love the colour coded aspect it would sit well in any kitchen. The container is very durable it’s dishwasher safe. There is a handle on there to grip onto when slicing/grating. The lid of the packaging doubles into a jug which has come in very useful for me and my cooking it’s translucent too. I already have the slicer out so saved me getting my jug dirty too. There are slots inside the container so that each part of the set can be neatly organised when you put it away. The non-slip feet are a fantastic touch as upright graters can be very frustrating sliding around the worktop as your trying to quickly grate cheese for something in the oven. I think it’s compact not much bigger than an everyday grater so has literally replaced my old grater in my cupboard.
Before having this grate and slice set I used to dread chopping or slicing of any sort, I can never get the exact size I require and can be clumsy, however since owning this it has become an effortless task and the big bonus is it’s so easy to get to grips with it and no plugs are involved. I have a tiny kitchen so electric choppers just take up to much room for me when cooking.
I’ve tested every single part of this set. The slicers are so sharp my onion was all chopped in seconds. I used the julienne slicer (green) for my onions which chopped it into tiny little strips. The block didn’t hold the onion very well it kept slipping off so I used my hands but that wasn’t a problem for me. The course and medium graters I rate just as highly I honestly can’t believe how effortless a task it is with this product. Having the grater resting on the lid of the container makes it so much easier. The standard slicer is fantastic I’ve sliced cucumber, carrots, apples and I’m sure I will many more things for years to come.
I have a toddler and a baby who will be weaning very soon. This set will help me make their food exciting and different each day keeping meal times fun.
I would highly recommend this to a friend purely because it’s so easy to use, compact and durable. I’m sure this will remain in my kitchen for years to come. I can tell this product has been very well thought about. Although it’s more expensive than a normal grater/slicer it’s well worth every extra penny. It can be stored and used easily and conveniently.
