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 ??

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.

Food Grinder Has Cracks

By msbb

from Florida

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

I am having same problem with this grinder as most others are having.
There are cracks around the metal collar that the drive shaft for the auger runs through.
I love my machine but please, I cannot use my machine with this grinder until I find another one.
Love the mixer, concerned about the grinder.

Grinds well...but body cracked

By Kathy

from Oak Hill

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.

Product failure - breakage

By Diane

from Huntsville, Alabama

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

The plastic piece used to hold the meat going into the grinder broke. I cut the meat into smaller pieces, about 1" - 1 1/4", inserted without having to push - more a guiding into the chute. I did not have to push or force. It seems the fat from the meat could not be ground and it formed into a icky mess. And, then the plastic split from the bottom, in the area of the auger up. I don't expect this poor quality of product from Kitchen Aid. I have and regularly use my products (Artisan mixer) and attachments although I do not often use the grinder. In our area many of us are grinding our own meats - this product needs to be improved.

Great Until the Warranty Expired

By Cliff.

from Pearland, TX

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

We bought this grinder attachment along with all of the accessories fully intending to enjoy it in our retirement; however, shortly after then warranty expired the hub developed a crack which has since expanded to the point where I believe that it is unsafe. I contacted KitchenAid Chat and was informed that I may purchase a replacement from them (for more than I can buy the entire package online - now there's a bargain for you). They have made no changes to this product either, so we are assured of having the identical problem sometime down the road...shaftus Americanus ;-) Did you feel it go in?

Poor construction of the grinder body.

By JB

from Ortonville Michigan

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

We have had this attachment for several years and have noticed that after only about 1/2 dozen uses, the plastic body is cracking around the metal collar that the drive shaft for the auger runs through. I would have expected better quality out of Kitchen Aid. The mixer is a work horse, but this attachment is really not up to the job it's expected to do.

Metal dust contaminating food - Beware

By Jason

from Dallas, TX

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

We have had our unit for about 7 years and never had a need to use it until today. In about 1/4 pound of meat, it fully clogged the plate. Disassembling the grinder, the knife had been entangled in sinew. I had kept all fat but removed silver skin prior to grinding. Getting past the knife, the meat was all contaminated with metal rubbings and was dark grey. Further disassembly showed very light wear on the driveshaft.

Not only was this unit unable to grind the meat, it was contaminating it as well. Nobody who wants a working product or cares for the health of themselves or those they feed should ever buy this unit.

Many other similar reports are here in the reviews. My unit was a 7 year old system but was never used. Other people who just bought the unit experienced the same thing so they have done nothing to rectify it their manufacturing flaw.

Great Grinder except has cracked.

By Datsmar

from Gautier MS

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

I bought this a few years ago and the last couple of times I used it I noticed cracks developing in the body. Went to use it today and noted the cracks were getting larger and I'm afraid of bacteria forming in the cracks. Tried to find just the body to replace and can't seem to find one. Don't need a whole unit. With as any complaints the unit has I am surprised the company has not provided a replacement. Did not post a picture because its the same as the other postings with pictures.

Concerned

By New user

from St. Charles, Mo

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

I'm a bit concerned now that I have read some of these reviews. I'm looking into buying the grinder attachment. One of these reviews mentioned grey powder coming off in their food. I have noticed this with bowl that came with my mixer. I thought since it was new it would be fine after have been washed a few times, but I'm still seeing it in my food. This is a bit concerning that I could be ingesting metal particles.

Not as expected

By crude4u

from Austin, Texas

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

I've only used my grinder to process cranberries, twice a year and have owned it for 5 years. Using 24 oz. of cranberries each time, the process takes less than 15 minutes. With this in mind, I have already noticed a crack on top of the hub where the unit attaches to the mixer.
As yet it does not seem to affect the performance but considering the minimal amount of usage, I cannot imagine what I would be facing if I had used the unit more vigorously.

Black stuff in my cheese

By CC

from Texas

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

I am using the grinder for cheese. It works fine for a little while then black grimy particles come out with my cheese. I'm disappointed. I like my machine but this is frustrating.
My husband said the shaft will not fully seat into the base, exposing the metal shaft in the housing, and coating the food with black grime.

Not Dishwasher safe

By Dennis

from Atlanta Metro area

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

Have one of these grinder attachments. KitchenAid chose to use some cheap pot metal aluminum alloy on the main body piece which inserts into the mixer power head. When run through the dishwasher, that piece is corroded by dishwasher detergent and has a gray powder all over it. No telling how much would get on other dishes? It rubs on on hands as a gray discoloration. The grinder plate and blade are not intended to go through the dishwasher. I could accept that limitation, but not being able to put the main body of the grinder through the dishwasher in not acceptable.

Cracking

By A. Cook

After reading all of the reviews I looked at mine and it is cracking on both sides. I saw the picture of one that totally cracked off. I surely will not use mine at Christmas unless I get a replacement for it. It looks like it was a poor design or poor material choice.

Cracked housing

By Tom

from Warrenton, Virginia

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

I have used my grinder for at least twelve years with excellent results, so can't complain. However, the last time I used it I noticed cracks developing in the plastic housing where it connects to the metal part that attached to the stand mixer. I went to the KitchenAid website intending to order a new housing (the other parts of my grinder still work fine), but was unable to do so. Can you help me out here?
Otherwise a fine product that punches above its weight.

Cracked and Shattered Housing

By Darren

from Marin County, CA

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

As others have described, I used the unit only a few times before noticing hairline cracks in the housing. The hairline cracks then opened up over time and created even larger cracks. While making cranberry chutney for Thanksgiving today, the housing completely shattered and dropped pieces of the grinder housing all over me and the food. This occurred at only the first speed setting grinding cranberries and oranges. I would say the unit has been used approximately five times. I love Kitchenaid but this unit is a safety concern. Prior to the failure, the unit worked well. My only design complaint is that the two dyes are extremely fine and extremely course, something in the middle would be a welcome addition.

Very good value for the price.

By John the Cook

from Crossville, TN

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

I use this attachment all the time. I make my own dog food, and often the cheapest meat is pork butt. For two years, I ground it using this attachment. Was it as fast as a commercial grinder? Certainly not. However the attachment only costs me a bit over $50, and a commercial grinder would be many hundreds of dollars. Furthermore, it would take up a lot of storage space. AND, the cleanup is so easy compared to that of dedicated machines.

Two years, using it for a pound of meat per day (usually in 20 pound batches) and the only thing I had to do was sharpen the little cutting blade windmill on a stone (once) when it seemed to be jamming a bit.

This is a plastic attachment, so, you know, it's not meant for heavy duty. However, I've been very happy with it. I've saved about a dollar a pound by grinding my own meat, and that adds up to almost $800 just in the last few years. Furthermore, the homemade Italian sausage I made (Emeril's recipe) from the same cheap pork butt was outstanding!

Cracks make it unusable.

By Joyce L

from Brookfield, IL

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

I have used this grinder maybe 5 or 6 times, and only for grinding sirloin to make fresh burger, to avoid the widespread contamination they have found in ground meats everywhere. Now I notice cracks in the plastic, near where the metal post goes into the mixer hub. This will harbor bacteria, making it unusable for grinding clean ground meat. There is a design flaw here...if only in the choice to make it of plastic! Expensive garbage. If I still had my receipt, I would return it.
