It has a grater, at least 2 slicing blades, and a rotary cutter that will chop or dice almost everything very fine. Takes less than 10 seconds to get finely chopped onions.
Heck, it beats egg whites wonderfully. If you are so inclined, it will make thin batters like for waffles, cakes, etc. I know I did that today. Clean up is a snap. Oh I even made a very simple frosting.
How is this different from a small food processor? I have the Cuisinart Mini.

This one is manual, not electric. It holds up to 4 cups.
When using the blade, you turn clockwise for chopping and counter-clockwise for blending.
Note: whenever you grate something, there is no chance of the food getting stuck between the top of the food processor and the shredder blade.
Oh and it works much better than my Hamilton Beach food processor.
Actually faster and easier to clean.

The advantage I see is in using this gadget is that the whole potato can be grated. With a box grater there's always a piece at the end I don't grate because I'm afraid of hurting my fingers.

I love it for making sliced potatoes for scalloped potatoes too.
But do click on the black one, it isn't an add on item.
Oh and the other cool thing, the potatoes will go straight into the bowl.

Oh and I cannot be held responsible if you later determine you need a second one.

Do you have to use a lot of force to grate potatoes with this product?

No. Very little in fact. Literally just move the potato back and forth.
I have not so great hands and what I recommended is a life saver.
The grater is very stable.

I'm confused...isn't the potato inside the gadget while it's being grated? How dose this work?
