If it's really old, the blades may be dull. There are replacements on the replacement parts order form. It might be worth the couple of bucks to see if that fixes the problem.HockeyLover said:I was given one by a friend that is 13 years old! You should see the box! It appears to be in good condition, but I have yet to be able to make anything but applesauce with it, and I've only tried with Granny Smiths! I think I'll have to check out the product info. I'm wondering if it's missing a piece?

Do you use all types of potatoes?legacypc46 said:This is one of my favorite tools in the entire line...I love it for apples, but even more so for potatoes!
