      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 ??

      MINE TOO CRACKED!

      By 

      from Sierra Vista, AZ

      Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment:

      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 

      from Austin, TX

      Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment:

      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.

      Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment:

      I've had my food grinder for quite awhile and have enjoyed using it, thus the 3 stars. However, the housing has now cracked - just from normal usage. This accessory is much to expensive to need replacing.

      Problems with Food Grinder maybe assembly problem by user

      By 

      from Oakland, CA

      Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment:

      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 

      from Ellensburg, WA

      Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment:

      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.

      Crack in hub

      from Pittsburgh, PA

      Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment:

      I was very excited to get my grinder so that I could ground my own chicken breast, but this product cracked on the third use. Very poorly made and a waste of money.

      Black good,metal shavings continuedo problem

      By 

      from Cleveland, Ohio

      Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment:

      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.

      Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Stand Mixer Attachment:

      I just bought one kitchen aid meat grinder and used it today. I noticed there is a fine dark metal powder produced in the center where the grind worm is rubbing the grinding plate. The powder make the food dirty. I have thrown the food. I decide to return the product to seller.
