Grinder works well turning chuck roast into ground beef.
I use mostly lean beef roast cut into pieces as per directions. I usually run it through the large hole die first then grind it a second time through the small hole die. The extra freshness of the resultant burgers is well worth the price of the device and the effort. The only drawback is clogging caused by sinew and silverskin in the roast.

This food grinder is so easy to use.
I have not been satisfied with the quality of ground meats from my grocery store, yet I use ground meat for so many of my favorite recipes. The KitchenAid food grinder allows me to have the freshest, leanest, and most flavorful ground meat for my meatloaf, burgers, and chili, just to name a few. I love it and would recommend it to anyone who wants to improve the quality of their food.

Where's the Beef?
I own this and love it. I grind my own meat for burgers, meatloaf, and meatballs. I typically grind a pound of chuck roast, sirloin, and tri tip. I have never had any problems. Just trim off that thin membrane skin as best you can. That's what clogs the machine but even then, it's so simple to clean that it's not much work. I store mine in the cupboard, pull it out, attach it and grind away

We have the aluminum grinder and have used it for over 20 ye
We are working with the aluminum grinder and have used it for over 20 years. Looked into the new ones and decided to keep the old. We'd like to replace the inside blade but you don't show to have any parts for the unit. That would be a good idea. We've tried sharpening the blade and hope it keeps working for the next 20 years.

Absolutely awful. It may be ok for simple tasks and minimal
I have been making sausage since i was a child and this was simply the wurst!

Seriously, we tried to make 10 lbs of chicken/feta spiced sausage and it was barely useable. To be honest i will go out and buy a cast hand-crank grinder before i would use this again. The slop between the feed gear and the wall of the grinder is so large that unless you force the meat down the shoot it will barely self feed and. Additionally, once ground you cannot use this tool to stuff the casing. Once ground the meat will squeeze past the gear and stay in the tube unless you force it through with the plunger. The plunger should only be needed to knock meat into the worm gear, which SHOULD be doing the work. After 1/2 hour and maybe 10 finger length sausages i traveled 9 miles to go get the old hand crank stuffer to finish the job. This grinder and stuffer are going back today.

I am sure someone will state that the picture shows stuffing the sausgae directly from the initial grind. You could do that if you want a poorly mixed products. I highly doubt that it would have the power to stuff a casing because the design is so poor.

Additionally, If you think of it you want to be able to stuff your casing at the same level as the stuffer tube. With this you have to either hang the sausgae in the air and break the casing regularly, or you have to build some sort of table to receive the sausage. Look at any commercial stuffer and you will see the tube exits at table level.

This is simply an introductory tool and not for any regular use. It's one of those gadgets that will sit at the back of the closet.

Knife replacement blades available for the Food Grinder?
I started grinding my hamburger meat several years ago and this makes that job so much easier.

I have no problems with this grinder but imagine the knife parts would most likely work better if replaced occasionally. Are knife and grinder plate replacement parts available for the Food Grinder?

What a piece of junk
I have used Kitchenmaid's food grinder attachment for years and use it frequently. I recently bought a second Kitchenaid mixer and bought a second food grinder for that mixer. It looks and feels cheaply constructed and just mashes the meat through the grinding plates instead of actually grinding it. I never had to freeze the meat I was working with with their old grinder attachment and it worked flawlessly.

Greese oozes out during grinding
I had my mixer for about 7 years. Love the mixer, however, when using the grinder with pork or grinding sirloin, a blackish grease comes out of the middle of the grinder. Kitchenaide suggests not running the machine hot...what?! Go with the hand held folks!

I've owned and used mine for over 25 years to grind my own hamburger, pork sausage, and venison. I've used it every Christmas and Thanksgiving to make cranberry relish. After 25 years, I need to replace the grinder since the housing has small cracks. It is well worth the price for effortless grinding.

Concern about adulterated meat products, with additives such as sausage with MSG, made me think it's time to get this meat grinder attachment so that we have more control over what we serve our family.

It is a useful attachment. I already have the stand mixer.

Teris S on Feb 26, 2017
I love keeping breakfast sausage on hand (pork for visitors or turkey for my own calorie-conscious breakfast) and being able to grind the meat fresh gives me a more robust flavor than buying ground meat. It's also almost always cheaper!

Will this grinder fit any KitchenAid stand mixer?
A shopper on Apr 8, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it's compatible with any KitchenAid
will this attachment fit my Kenmore 16 speed stand mixer - model # 238.69253?
A shopper on Jul 23, 2011
BEST ANSWER: This food grinder is one of the most useful KitchenAid accessories. Included are a stomper and coarse and fine plates for grinding meat, firm fruits and vegetables. It is specifically designed to fit the KitchenAid Stand Mixer and will not fit the Kenmore
can the grinder handle meats with small bones? like a whole chicken etc? I want to start making my dogs homemade healthy food. bone ground up is a good source of nutrients, and I don't want to have a choking hazard. thanks for any replies.
A shopper on Oct 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have only ground meat without bones. The attachment does not have sharp teeth or anything that would break up bone and I think it would either clog or break the machine. If you cut the meat off the bone ( which is what we do) it goes through the machine very well. We put good size chunks in and it grids it nicely.
I'm ordering a grinder and sausage stuffer does it come with a "pusher" or do i need to order one?
A shopper on Sep 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it comes with a pusher that is a combination "wrench" to help tighten and loosen the grinder (you have to look at it to understand how it works). This is a great attachment that we use all of the time to grind fresh beef, tuirkey, pork and chicken. It's a great tool.
Is this dishwasher safe? Is it difficult to clean?
A shopper on Sep 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have not put mine in the dishwasher, although I think you could. But it is so easy to clean. After I remove it from the mixer, I remove the blades and just run water through the grinder. I hand wash the blades and have not had any issues. I love this attachment.
