This slicer/grater works on your mixer as shown in the description. It is a little bulky and noisy because you mixer part goes round and round while the other attachment is working but it does work well and does the job. It is a little pricey for all plastic pieces except the slicer itself, but that it Kitchenaid for you. My KitchenAid mixer is still going after 30 years and I was glad to get this attachment to still fit it.
More of a shredder than slicer, best use is for hard cheese. Mozzarella works better if gently frozen. Carrots or potatoes work ok. Cucumbers maybe, if they are very firm. Celery, onions, not so much. If you wish to slice those, there is a different accessory, KSM1FPA food processor attachment. I was expecting the housing to be aluminum, but it is a tough plastic. The drive shaft and blades are nicely machined metal. The wide slicer could probably use sharpening with a Dremel, if you own one.
This slicer arrived on time and in perfect condition. I returned it because the cone slicing blade was so dull it mushed raw onions and celery. It worked mediocrely on firm root veggies but fruits were an absolute mush as well. If I had the right tools I could have sharpened the cutting edges but at 50$ I think it should come ready to use and I don't have the right tools. The shredder code worked fabulously on cheese and carrots. I do not think this is worth keeping for one good cone. I was hoping to rid myself of my cumbersome food processor but that won't be happening now.
