I have never used any sort of attachment with my Kitchenaid, and today I used a slicer/shredder that I borrowed from Jill. AND I love it! It really helped reducing the huge pile of zucchini I had adding up by the day! I think I shredded about 8-10 pretty big sized zucchinis and came out with about 22 cups of shredded stuff! We made two loaves of zucchini bread and shared it with a friend that dropped by just in time! Thanks Jill! I am putting it on my wishlist, for the simple fact that unfortuneately I won't always be your neighbor!
