The Desire Slice and Go came in a well packaged eye catching box and was really easy to put together after i had read the instruction leaflet.
It is a great design in a modern black and red which sits neatly on my kitchen worktop.
It comes with 3 different cutters which store away at the back of the machine when not using them.
It's brilliant for grating cheese in seconds! I've sliced and grated carrots, sliced cucumber and potatoes and it comes in really handy for grating salad ingredients.
It's quick and easy to wash which is a plus point.
I'm sure that over the next few months i will find many uses for my new kitchen friend, especially as the colder months are looming with soups and casseroles to prepare!
I would recommend this product to all my friends.

'Wow' ... was first thought when I saw the box! If this gadget can do ALL THAT, then I'll have fun in the school holidays with six grandchildren! It is fabulous! I involve the children in the food preparation and it encourages them to eat. We've cooked minced beef, and used ALL THREE cylinders to grate and slice carrots, then had fun checking them out eventually on their plates! I was amazed at the speed and the quality of the sliced onions! No more tears!
I've taken my 'MINION' and an extension lead outside to the garden table at lunchtime, and grated cheese directly onto each child's plate, over pasta.~ even allowed the older ones, to press the easy to use button, themselves! What fun, and so easy to wash and store away! I use it almost daily. It's so tidy and compact, and attractive ~ very practical for my small kitchen. In fact, it's quite a talking point, and so is the three year guarantee! That's great!
I love carrot cake, and that will be my next delightful baking challenge with my MINION, but my 'pièce de résistance' so far, is ~ 'Gratin Dauphinoise'! Another 'Wow'! The sliced potatoes happily came tumbling out of the MINION, and in record time, I was ready to put the dish altogether. It was exciting, and if I'm allowed a boast, it tasted delicious ... and not a calorie in sight!
Seriously, I am absolutely chuffed with my new gadget, and it helps me make 'exciting, colourful, healthy, salads' in minutes, and I look forward to the colder weather, when me and my MINION, will make soup, lots of soups! It's definitely an asset for HEALTHY LIVING!
Yes, I recommend this product.

The product was easy to put together, and even easier to use. The black and red give it a modern look, and with its size make a welcome addition on my kitchen worktop.
I have used the fine attachment to grate cheese,and the larger grater for cabbage, carrot and onion for my homemade coleslaw, so much easier than doing by hand. I have even used it to grate garlic and tomato for my spanish garlic bread.
It is very easy to dismantle for washing, and I think the storage on the back of the machine for the additional 2 attachments is a great idea, as things tend to get lost in the back of cupboards !
I love this product and find it very useful, the only down side being the price, as I feel it is a bit on the expensive side, however I am sure it will be used on a regular basis.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The Desire Slice and Go is in an attractive eye catching box with simple bullet point indications of cutters, storage and guarantee plus a coloured illustration of functions.
It is a compact/contemporary piece of equipment than would look good on the work surface. I used it for making celeriac remoulade (never made before-would involve a lot of grating!)-really successful, coleslaw, potatoes for sautéing and would be suitable for grated carrot salad, adding hidden vegetables to meals for fussy children and marmalade. Easier to wash than a processor and a lot cheaper. Would be great for parties, buffets and for wedding/engagement/birthday presents.
Great forhealthy eating, wedding presents
Yes, I recommend this product.

This product is very nice and compact with the additional attachments slotting in the back out of the way. The colours are super smart and it would be nice to have the other gadgets in this design.
It's a grater and slicer and I think it's a little basic but if you have this readily available on your worktop it can come in very handy. It is small but it's very speedy.
It''s excellent for grating cheese using the course grater.
I would definitely recommend this product especially if you make soups and casseroles.
Yes, I recommend this product.
