I have lost my instruction sheet so would like yo know how do I separate main body from the white sucker end for washing, or does it not separate ?

Di
Di  

Yes it seperates, you need yo turn the base to the unlock positin as when you turn it it sticks to the bench top but also locks in the top part. Hope this helps

i have the same problem, it is really hard to get off for cleaning, even after i have released the suction.

Where is it made?

CHINA of course

Jaclyn

It's a sad fact atm that most products are made in China until manufacturing goes back to the original countries. Having said that, you'll miss out on a great slicer!

How do I chop dates with my sumoslicer

crowmountain
crowmountain  

Not recommended.
First they must be de-pipped and whilst doing this it is easier to chop with a small sharp knife.

Good day, are you able to cut tomatoes with this ?

crowmountain
crowmountain  

Not Recommended. Easier to chop with a sharp Knife. Soft fruits tend to clog the blades

I have not tried but agree with crowmountain. too soft. unless you want to use the tomatoes in cooking.

Lorna

Sorry Denise, I have a Borner V Slicer and still pondering, if I will buy the Kleva Sumo Slicer. My Borner can do everything and do not want to get rid of it, as there is still a lot of years left - still very sharp and still looks quite new. Maybe, one day, I will get one. Cheers.

I have purchased a Sumo Slicer and I can't secure on my bench, it just doesn't lock.I have slightly moist the surface and still no success.

Ronald Moore

Hello Gloria ! I have not had that problem with my slicer or any other problem for that matter.Make sure your bench is flat and clean and dry.When you turn the locking mechanism clockwise to lock it to your bench apply some pressure to the slicer so that it sits firmly on the bench as you turn the locking mechanism.It is important that the rubber seal is clean and dry also to allow the ' suction' to work.You may need to clean your seal with something like vinegar if it has a film on it which is stopping the suction from working.My slicer attaches very strongly to my bench and has not failed once.Good luck, remember it is important everything is clean just as in attaching a GPS to a car windscreen.Hope my comments help - Ronald Moore.

Paul

If you use vinegar, use that protectant for car rubber and vinyl, otherwise the seal will perish.
Make sure there isn't a thin plastic suction cup protector covering the suction cup on the base

your bench top must be absolutely smooth.

Just received it and cannot get it to adhere to the bench. What is wrong?

Pat
Pat  

I found that if you very slightly dampened the surface where you want it to stick it would adhere well.

Matt
Matt  

That’s because they are rubbish, wait till you use it, then you’ll have something to whinge about LOL

Stuart Bates
Stuart Bates  

Matt, whineing is not enough. Please say what you think or know to be the problems.

Then an informed decision can be made

We cannot get the sumo slicer to stick to our lame ex bench top which makes a two person job all of a sudden, I have read a few other comments with the same problem and then some saying it works fine

happy customer

Leave the top off and make sure the arrows are not aligned. With little pressure then lock the arrows together, going from right to left.
Put top part on after it has adhered.
Hope this helps.

Get a glass chopping board to place it on. Not a perfect solution but something.

How do I make zucchini noodles woth the Sumo slicer

Kleva Range
Kleva Range   DM   

Hi Karen, Unfortunately the Kleva Sumo Slicer is not designed to spiralize vegetables, it can however create short zucchini pasta style pieces which can be created using the coarse grater drum.

How does the sumo slicer slice onions. All I seem to be able to do is shred it.

Gordon Howard
Gordon Howard  

I have had no success with onions at all.

Kleva Range
Kleva Range   DM   

Hi Wally, Thanks for your question.

The slicer blade works best on hard fruit or vegetables, a hack we have found to easily slice onions is to place them in the freezer or cool section of the fridge for an hour beforehand. This should ensure the onions are cleanly sliced without any difficulty.

Please let us know how you go with it!

Hi. Is there a way to get the slicer attachment to slice thicker. I have tried it with cucumber, zucchini & potatos & they all come out as thin as tissues. Very frustrating.

Catherine

I don't know. Mine come out fine.
