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 came here to report large cracking in the FGA and assumed since Kitchenaid stands for quality that it would be covered by a warranty. At a retail price of over $60 this shouldn't break so easily. It's a few years old however it has been used how many times?? maybe 7 ??

JUNK!

By Linda

from Okeana Ohio

Comments about KitchenAid® Meat Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment (Fga):

I was in the middle of grinding soft, mushy blackberries (not some tough meat mind you) when suddenly......POW! the grinder split apart. This was only my 2nd time using this. You'd think as powerful and heavy-duty as their Stand Mixer is Kitchen Aid would have an accessory that could handle that power.

Poor Quality

By Chef

from Maryland

Comments about KitchenAid® Meat Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment (Fga):

I did not read the reviews online about the grinders problems with cracking. I would think that the company would replace the grinder, as it is a manufacturing flaw. As reported here and online, the plastic on the grinder cracks. Then when you go to get it replaced, there is only a one year warranty. Doesn't make sense. Why would anyone want to spend the money on Kitchen Aid that you expect quality. The mixer is great, but the have skimped on the grinder.

Fantastic! But needs a splatter shield.

By Rosie the Riveter

from Texas

Comments about KitchenAid® Meat Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment (Fga):

I love it. It's great for finely grinding and food. I particularly love using it to grind meat and vegetables for spaghetti sauce and burgers.
The only problem it has is when grinding the meat, it has a tendency to splatter juices everywhere. If they just had some sort of splatter shield for it, I would be rating this at 5 stars.

Food Grinder problems

By Fran

from Dallas, TX

Comments about KitchenAid® Meat Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment (Fga):

I received my food grinder as a gift from my son to go along with my Kitchen Aid mixer. I used it a few times to grind chicken but decided it was too much work.
This spring I bought the vegetable and fruit strainer to use on home grown tomatoes. When I took the food grinder attachment out of the box I noticed it had a crack but used it anyway. Did the tomatoes fine but when I tried to put some small grapes through the strainer it exploded grapes all over me and the kitchen. I wouldn't buy another plastic one but will try the metal one since I need a good strainer for my fruits and veggies. Hope it performs better and longer.

Cracked housing

By Rex

from Holt, mi

Comments about KitchenAid® Meat Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment (Fga):

I have enjoyed using this attachment, and I have always felt that KitchenAid quality justified the price. Sadly, the housing of my grinder has cracked, and judging from the reviews, it appears to be a common problem. I cannot justify spending the money to replace this attachment.

Worst product ever

By teddyM

from Gainesville , Florida

Comments about KitchenAid® Meat Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment (Fga):

I have three Kitchen Aid mixers that I have purchased over the years and so far all three work great.

Unfortunately I thought that I would buy another grinder so that I could keep one with each machine,
but stupidly . I thought that I would buy the plastic unit because it was a little cheaper , and what could
possibly go wrong ???

Well , I got about 6 months use from it and when needing to use it again , I heard a LOUD CRACK when I started to grind my fresh meat for my weekly meatloaf .

I had no idea what it was , but as I tried to continue grinding , it would NOT work properly.

I switched out the grinder with one of the metal ones to finish the job , and when cleaning the plastic
unit , I found two cracks in the neck part that sits up against the machine ( as shown in one of the reviews
on this page).but the cracks were not surface cracks ,but through and through ,which rendered it useless.

NO MORE PLASTIC EVER AGAIN !!! HUGH waste of money !

MINE TOO CRACKED!

By Eltee

from Sierra Vista, AZ

Comments about KitchenAid® Meat Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment (Fga):

I was grinding some meat today and heard a loud "crack" coming from the grinder. Sure enough, there were 2 cracks in the housing; one at 11 o'clock and one at 3 o'clock, loofing at the power hub attachment end.
I put a hose clamp on it to finish my project but it won't last forever.
I'm writing this because I saw so many other complaints of this nature in the reviews.
Is it a design flaw?

Crack in Base of housing

By Missa

from Austin, TX

Comments about KitchenAid® Meat Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment (Fga):

I have used the meat grinder attachment for several years when making homemade tamales. When I took it out of the box this year I discovered a crack at the base where it inserts into the stand mixer. Even though I have had it a number of years, I only use it once a year. I was extremely saddened to find the crack as the attachment was not inexpensive to purchase.

Problems with Food Grinder maybe assembly problem by user

By Teresa

from Oakland, CA

Comments about KitchenAid® Meat Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment (Fga):

I love this food grinder and use it for all types of meat on a weekly basis. Today I accidentally did not assemble it correctly before trying to use it and learned that is a disaster and created most of the problems reported in the negative reviews here. Someone put away the parts to my food grinder and didn't put the little square "knife" part with the other parts and I somehow forgot it existed. So I assembled the grinder parts and it hardly worked at all. I go a small crack in the housing, had to use the pusher to even get anything out a all and thought I had broken something. I cleaned it all out and tried again and started even getting metal shavings grinding from the shaft into the meat. So I stopped, took it apart again and found a manual and realized I had neglected to put the little square part they call the "knife" on to the shaft before the round grinding plate. Once I found it and put it on, viola, no problems at all and it was back to working as it has always worked....which is GREAT......so I wonder if that is a part that people don't realize is essential to the operation of the grinder....it can't be lost or just ignored.

In any case, there is the issue that these parts can be easily lost but I clean and dry mind and then store them all assembled in a large plastic zip lock bag near my mixer so it is ready to use next time.

Good innovation, impractical design.

By Father of 5

from Ellensburg, WA

Comments about KitchenAid® Meat Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment (Fga):

I used this grinder for the first time tonight, and was mostly satisfied with the actual performance of the setup. Unfortunately, having used a commercial grade grinder before, I found the housing design to be frustratingly inefficient. If the food were droped into a v shaped chanel feeding down directly to the auger, it would eliminate the need to physically ramrod every individual piece of food down the frustratingly small shaft (likely eliminating most of the cracked housing complaints I have been reading), while at the same time mixing the ingredients much more thoroughly. I, unfortunately, will most likely not be useing this attachment again, simply because of the feeding mechanism. If a new housing is developed an marketed, I will happily look at it.

Black good,metal shavings continuedo problem

By Beansnees

from Cleveland, Ohio

Comments about KitchenAid® Meat Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment (Fga):

I bought this to make baby food. After the first use it started making grey goo in the food around the shaft.I cleaned it again thoroughly..still there. I tried using very cold/ frozen meat...still there. Upon searching found that it is metal shavings! Kitchen aid says it's oil.. neither I really want feeding my child. Will be returning. Kind of a bummer since I love all my other attachments. Seems to be a long standing problem that has yet to be addressed ( found reviews for years with same problem) . I would not recommend buying this attachment.

unable to use for anything

By Expected more

from Chicago, IL

Comments about KitchenAid® Meat Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment (Fga):

I bought this a while ago and today realized I can not use it for ANYTHING. A while back, I tried to grind meat with it, only to have it fail completely (the blade only mushed the meat, didn't grind it and the machine quickly became backed up), and today I tried to grind sliced ham, only to realize after grinding two pounds of it, that the middle of the grinder was rubbing metal on metal, pushing a gray fine metal infused substance into the ground ham. Needless to say, I had to throw out the two pounds that I ground, had to buy new ham and had to use my old hand-cranked grinder. Disappointing.

Making an awful squeaking noise.

By Cooking Guy

from Gladstone, MI

Comments about KitchenAid® Meat Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment (Fga):

I bought the grinder years ago and make sausage sparingly. It always has ground the meat well, but now makes this horrible squeaking noise. When I make bread, the mixer doesn't make the noise so I have deduced it is the grinder. I have tried using olive oil as a lubricant but that doesn't work.
I am looking at buying a free standing meat grinder at this point.

Works

By Rich the electrician

from Indiana

Comments about KitchenAid® Meat Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment (Fga):

This grinder works worlds better than the sausage suffer and the only two complaints I have is that it leaves a black/gray looking stuff in the meat! Does not look appetizing and took me a long time to fish put all of it I could find! Besides that had some oil appear on the end of the inserted shaft because the mixer runs kinda hour with this attachment on.

Grinds well...but body cracked

Comments about KitchenAid® Meat Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment (Fga):

I have used this grinder a handful of times and have been very happy. Yesterday when using it I noticed that the body is cracked in a couple places. I am surprised because KitchenAid (in my mind) stands for excellent quality. Sadly, this attachment doesn't live up to that reputation.
