Great Until the Warranty Expired

By Cliff.

from Pearland, TX

Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Attachment:

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?

Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Attachment:

Have only used it a couple times but it's doing exactly what I hoped it would. Happy that it comes completely apart to be able to wash it.

Poor construction of the grinder body.

By JB

from Ortonville Michigan

Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Attachment:

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 Food Grinder Attachment:

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 Food Grinder Attachment:

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 Food Grinder Attachment:

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 Food Grinder Attachment:

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 Food Grinder Attachment:

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 Food Grinder Attachment:

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.
