    This wonderful KitchenAid® attachment has changed the way we view ground meat products. From the very first time I purchased an inexpensive roast, asked the butcher for a half pound of beef fat, went home and ground our own home made ground beef, we decided we would never buy store or factory ground beef again. There is no comparison. After the "pink sludge" scare a few years ago, everyone wants better ground meat products and this simple device makes it not only possible but easy and affordable. I also grind pork butt and make our own sausage patties by simply adding a bit of sage and you can too. I also grind the beef, pork and veal to make the best meatballs ever. If you have ever considered this attachment, quit thinking and go get it. You will be so glad you did. Thanks, Mark from Sacramento, CA

    I love the grinder. The problem is, with a company that makes such a superior Standmixer, I have had to replace the grinder twice, and shredder twice. They crack easily and at the cost of them, they are not a good buy. I just purchased one of your vintage grinders that is made of aluminum and wonder why you changed the aluminum to plastic. The plastic ones aren't any good. As for the shredder, I decided to go with a cheaper brand food processor instead of purchasing a 3rd one. I love my Kitchen Aid and have bought one for both of my kids because they are excellent. But advised them that the accessories aren't worth the money. Sorry.

          Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Attachment for Stand Mixers:

          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.

              We ground up elk meat for the first time and it worked great. We even made some Italian Sausage using the ground up meat. We will be using attachment often. It was easy to use.

                      Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Attachment for Stand Mixers:

                      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.

                          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.

                            i only use it for meat products. sometimes the meat sticks & it has to be disassembled to cleans & then put back but it's a minor setback.

                            Used for 6 months. PRO: Useful when out of store bought ground meats. PRO: Gives a good grind texture that cannot be done by my food processor. PRO: 2 handy size grind sizes but wish it had one even larger. Handwash metal parts only. CON:a little difficult catching food as it comes out of the grinder. I use a wide bowl sometimes a cookie tray. You should store the parts together back in the original box or something. I use a cloth bag for my mixer attachments. Requires practice to find out what shapes and sizes of food to use.There is a additional attachment tray you can buy that catches the food as it squirts out of the grinder but I have not tried it.
