My food processor has attachments for this. I can grate like, cheddar, but I don’t know if it’ll grate, say, parmesan down to tiny bits cuz i haven’t done that. But i’ve done cheese!

This isn’t like the fanciest tool ever, but I think it’s pretty neat and can do both of those things.  It’s from the Martha Stewart line at Macy’s.  It’s only like 15 bucks and you don’t have to get out a giant machine.  It probably wouldn’t work for heavy duty stuff though.

this isn’t really an appliance rather than a tool but a mandolin is pretty good at slicing things. I think it has different attachments too that lets it do different things.

If not, you can always get this for potatoes, a cheese grater for cheese, and one of those chop-its for onion.

yeah, a good food processor will do that (if it has all the right parts) – ejs, what food processor do you use?

Also, if you’re looking for a way to do it by hand, a mandoline is your best friend. I could not LIVE without my mandoline (and yet I’m looking to upgrade on our registry, hahaha)

I have a mandoline.  It comes with slicing attachments, shredding/julienneing attachments, and a large and small grater.

I have only used the slicing attachment, but I plan to try out the julienner soon.

I have a KitchenAid food processor and it can grate cheese and slice potatoes, and I am sure you can purchase a blade that dices the onions.  To have diced onions, I cut my onions in strips and then put them in the food processor.  I love my KitchenAid food processor so much!  It’s very easy to use and I have made great things with it like hummus, pureed soups, etc.

I have this guy:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Hamilton-Beach-500-Watt-Chef-Prep-Food-Processor/5924589

Yes, I bought it at Walmart for like $40. It is awesome =].

It even has little suctions on the bottom so it sticks to my counter so when i’m using it, the force doesn’t cause it to slide around or rattle or vibrate goofy (like a lot of other appliances I’ve used that involve centripetal forces). It’s very easy to use, too. Sometimes there are just too many buttons on an appliance

You could use a food processor, but I’d suggest just using a cheese grater and a chef’s knife. You can do so many things with just a chef’s knife.

there are so many things to do this but the cuisinart is my fave, second would be a zyliss mandolin (oxoo is good too)

Can’t a cheese grater do that?

My mother uses a Salad Shooter for grating cheese and slicing things (such as apples for apple pie) and it works really well.

One word of caution about using a mandoline…ALWAYS use the hand-guard. I’ve seen what can happen when you don’t and let’s just say that the meal ends up pretty much ruined when you have to go to the hospital and get stitches.
