Cracked housing

By Rex

from Holt, mi

Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Attachment:

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 Food Grinder Attachment:

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 Food Grinder 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 Missa

from Austin, TX

Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder 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.

I'm very disappointed

By RVer

from Spring Branch, TX

Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder 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 Teresa

from Oakland, CA

Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder 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 Father of 5

from Ellensburg, WA

Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder 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.
