This is an excellent attachment for the Kitchen Aid mixer. We use it to make ground beef, but I want to try to make sausage with it as well. I plan on using it to make bulk sausage, not stuffed casings. I had two issues with it, one of which was probably my mistake.

First it tends to jam up with gristle. I assumed it would just grind up the tougher stuff but it doesn't so now I make sure to trim the meat accordingly.

Second, and this was probably my fault, it will jam repeatedly if you use the smaller-holed plate. I switched to using the larger-holed plate and it makes great hamburger.

Conclusion: This is great for the occasional meat grinding (less than 5 pounds at a time). If I was going to grind more than that I would probably want a dedicated grinder, but I dislike uni-taskers!

I bought thie grinder specifically to grind figs and dates for a special stuffing traditional Italian cookie. I had my dough made, icing made, and daughters gathered to teach them how to carry on this tradition. Right in the middle of grinding the figs POW the fitting burst! Not only was this a mess but the biggest disappointment was not being able to finish the cookie with the grinder. this product should be metal. Not cheap plastic. Very disappointed, I feel this product should be replaced.

Can't disassemble

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

I like this attachment, haven't used it for awhile. I used it tonight and now the screw won't come out of the housing. It's completely stuck so i can't clean this. I even tried to use a hammer to pop it out and it's not budging. Makes this unusable.

How to repair your cracked housing!

By Chris2001

from Tucson, AZ, United States

Verified Buyer

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

I too have the cracked housing. I repaired it by first putting masking tape inside to form a mold. Then filling the crack with 100% marine-grade silicone sealant and making sure to fill the crack by using a toothpick tool. After allowing it to cure for 24 hours and removing the masking tape backing from inside, I then permanently surrounded the housing with a steel hose-clamp to reinforce it and ensure no additional cracks develop, and this one gets no larger. Good luck.

Wish it were sturdier

By Churchlady35

from Carthage, NC, United States

Verified Buyer

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

I have had this grinder for quite a while but early on developed a small crack in the housing. I have continued to use this and each time the crack increases in size or another one develops to the point that presently what I am grinding comes out through the cracks- unusable at this point so will have to trash it.

Worked great!

By GrandmaNita

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

First time I used the grinder attachment and made cranberry orange relish. Worked like a charm with no splashing or mess. Parts clean up easily with hand-washing. Used the finer blade for the relish. Did use frozen cranberries but think I'll use fresh next time for even faster grindiing. No longer will I use the old grinder which has to be attached to a flat surface and makes a mess!

Plastic Ring Broke

By sdsd1900

from Bonsall, CA, United States

Verified Buyer

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

I've used my grinding attachment quite a few times already. Today, when I tried to grind some beef flank, the ring busted. I had to throw away all the ground meat, and not to mention the mess that had to be cleaned up. I can't understand how the plastic ring would just break like that, I was just trying to grind a thing (but long) piece of meat. I'm kind of disappointed with the quality, because I really like the mixer and the grinding attachment. How do I go about getting a replacement part for this ring?

I use it often, but the area that houses the worm shaft is cracked. This should be lifetime and and never break this way. I fear the unit is on borrowed time.

Built out of weak plastic

By agneta_ion

from Toronto, ON, Canada

Verified Buyer

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

Pretty useful and overall not a bad add-on to have around. The problem is with its build quality. My mom doesn't use this for anything very demanding but maybe some imperfection in the plastic material caused the collar that secures the plate to crack as you see in the picture. Tried to glue it but it's impossible to hold it in place long enough for the glue to set in. Really disappointing as otherwise this is as i said a pretty good idea for a tool.

Disappointed

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

I have several attachements for my Kitchenaid stand mixer, but I've been very disappointed with this item. The quality is less than what I expect of the Kitchenaid brand. After only five or six uses in a two year period, the grinder blade fails to turn and the warranty has expired.

I purchased the grinder at the same time that I got my stand mixer. It took me several months before I used it, but now I use it all the time. I mainly use it to process beef and pork and it is a monster! Quick, efficient and easy to clean!

Not Dishwasher Safe!

By Hard Armor Mike

from Bozeman, MT

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

Received this as a gift and used it grind venison, elk, and bacon with the coarse plate on our first use. Did a pretty good job, only had some leaking from the screw on guard that secures the grinding plate and cutting knife.

Following the manual, we washed the hopper as well as the screw shaft in the dishwasher. The attachment point where the grinder and stand mixer meet has now discolored to a dark gray and has residue that comes off when it is touched. The end of the screw shaft where the cutting blade mounts is also showing signs of rust. I would not expect for such things to occur with dishwasher safe components!

Very disappointed and not sure where to go from this point. Liked using the grinder, but I am very concerned with how it could further contaminate food in the future. Hoping that Kitchenaid is willing to stand by their product so we're not stuck with something that can't be used. Will be reading the user reviews prior to purchasing any other attachments!

This is one that we bought to replace our one that was determined to be a loss due to a fire in our home. I have used other meat grinders and feel this does not even come close to how they worked. I have never had any problems with this. I would highly recommend this to a friend!!!

Does the job as long as it lasts

By MedicCook

from Indianapolis, IN

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

This is the second FGA I've had in the last 15 years..first one was used maybe 10 times in 5 years or so and then the housing split apart. Tossed it and then bought a new one, have had it for about a year now and it gets used maybe twice a month and where the set screw for where it attaches to the mixer has basically drilled out. Now the set screw is biting into the drive shaft. Trying to decide if I want to buy another one of these or buy a completely separate one..

Room for improvement

By SG

from Providence, RI

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

I have used this attachment for over a year. I haven't experienced any of the issues posted by other reviewers (i.e. metal shavings on the meat, oil residues, etc.).

Several design flaws as with other KA attachments:

The hooper could be certainly bigger and a food tray should be default with the grinder (instead of having to buy an additional accessory).

The plastic pusher is probably one of the worst ideas. It is basically a thin stick with a plate at the end. Instead of properly pushing the meat downwards sends small pieces back up when you push! This becomes worst if you try to pass the grounded meat for second time through the grinder to achieve a very thin grind.

A full cylinder fitting inside the feeding tube would have been a much better option.

All plastic construction is not my preferred material, particularly for handling meat, however it does the job.

Since the grinder is a mono-piece, cleaning the inner parts properly is not very easy.

Blade assembly instructions unclear

By stevelandress

from Brentwood, NY

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

I have had this attachment a wile, but don't use it often enough to remember how I put the blade in the previous time. I have the older version of the blade. The thick dark color one. Anyway, it is not marked in anyway, as to top or bottom. So the blade fits in either way. However I have read somewhere that if you put it in backwards the blades won't cut. The blade needs to be marked top and bottom.

This attachment cracks!

By Lhull

from Undisclosed

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

I have been reading many reviews that say this attachment cracks in various places. IT DOES! Read the reviews and do not buy this item. It is way too expensive to have to replace every year because the plastic case cracks.

K A does not seem interested in addressing this problem, nor in fixing it. Do yourself a favor and purchase a separate grinder!
