I followed the instructions exactly (cut meat into small cubes, chilled it and the attachment, etc.). It was chuck and sirloin steak (for burgers) - not too fatty. Within 30 seconds, the grinder clogged up entirely. I cleaned it out, started again - clogged up again within 10 seconds.
Then I noticed that there were little grey lumps in the ground meat. Upon close examination, they were blobs of engine grease coming from the attachment - apparently the drive mechanism isn't sealed off from the food path well enough. I looked online and, sure enough, it's a common complaint that this thing puts greasy blobs into your food.
No way am I eating that. The attachment went back to the store, after a total of less than a minute of actual use
