Great for what I do.

By Just a Guy in the Kitchen

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Attachment:

I have had this food grinder for several years and use it constantly. I use it to grind the cooked vegetables when I make my own salsa (tomatoes, onions, garlic, hot peppers). I bake the vegetables and then run them through the coarse grinder to get a chunky but consistent consistency. I could easily put them in a food processor or blender, but prefer the chunkiness from the bigger grinder die than the smoothness from a blender or processor. This thing works perfectly and consistently and always gives great results. The only issue I have had with it are that pressing the juicy vegetables down the chute with the wooden press will occasionally put too much pressure and cause the ground veges to squirt out the die & beyond the bowl or to squirt back up the food chute - but I attribute this to my over-pressing the food to speed up the process. Simply turning up the speed does a better job of grinding quicker.

Let me add this disclaimer: I do not grind meat with it. I don't grind venison, boar, or even beef for burgers or chili. But, for my use in grinding vegetables, this does a perfect job every time.

terrible blades

By Louise

from Oregon

Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Attachment:

The blades on this accessory are horrible. Just grinding chunks of meat for meatloaf requires cleaning out the blades every other cycle.

Room for improvement

By S&G

from Providence, RI

Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Attachment:

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.

Disappointed, not durable.

By Fire LTChef

from Waterbury, CT

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Attachment:

I recently bought this grinder at a kitchen/chef supply store. I was excited to have item to use with my stand mixer. Sadly, the housing sustained a crack during usage. I was careful not to overstuff the unit, or apply too much pressure with loading meat. I expected more, especially because I certainly paid the price for the name. I will continue to use Kitchen Aid products, but as far as this item, I guess I am better off using the old school manual unit that clamps to the table.

Food Grinder sometimes works well

By Debbie

from Chillicothe, Ohio

Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Attachment:

I got this food grinder quite a while ago but the grind worm broke a piece off and I ordered just the new grind worm. I think my husband said it cost 20-30 dollars. Today I used it again for the first time using the new grind worm and the cooked chicken kept getting jammed up and I had to take it apart about three times before finishing my chicken salad. Cheese works pretty well as I had made pimento cheese spread in the last one before it broke. If this one breaks then I will go back to my old metal one that attaches to the table top.

Complete waste of time and money

By Joe

from Natick, MA

Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Attachment:

We've had this for a few months and were really looking forward to grinding meat for hamburgers. After about an hour of constantly trying to unclog it we gave up. This product is a total waste of money - at least for grinding meat. I wish I could give it zero stars.

Ineffective/Useless

By Disappointed Di

from Michigan

Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Attachment:

This grinder has a feed tube that is too long and narrow. I wanted to grind ring bologna for sandwich spread and couldn't get it pushed down far enough to reach the spiral feeder. Resorted to my old hand crank grinder to get the job done. I won't bother trying to grind meat. By the time you cut it into small chunks and freeze it so it doesn't get turned to mush, you might as well use a quicker method. Also, most parts are plastic with exception of cutting blade and plate.

Works well but you gotta follow the instructions

By LVKA

from Mandan, ND

Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Attachment:

I like this attachment, very useful! They tell you to make sure meat is as cold as possible and that is way wise. Mine was not and the fat on the meat eventually blocked up the grinder because it was not cold enough. My fault!

Smashes Instead of Grinds

By Nascardog

from Highland, CA

Comments about KitchenAid Food Grinder Attachment:

This review is for a replacement unit for my 10 year old Kitchen Aid food grinder that had developed a stress fracture in the body of the unit. Unfortunately, this new grinder does not work anywhere near as well as my old one did. First off, this grinder does not come with a wooden pestle for pushing the meat down the throat of this unit, so thankfully I had saved my old one. The auger of this unit does not catch the meat and pull it in as it is being fed into the unit. I have to push down so hard on the meat that I'm certain this plastic unit will soon crack and fail. As the meat goes through the redesigned cutter head it does not get cut but instead it is squeezed bit by bit through the coarse plate. Instead of creating coarse ground meat it very slowly pushes out strings of mush, similar in texture to cooked oatmeal. Because the grinding/smashing of the meat is so slow, there is no way someone could use the sausage stuffing attachment on this food grinder unit. Thankfully I have a 5# sausage mixer and separate 5# sausage stuffer so at least I was able to finish the 30# of kielbasa I made this afternoon. I would have been really screwed if I had depended on this unit for stuffing the casings. I really love KitchenAid products so I'm hoping that perhaps I just ended up with a manufacturing defect. Not sure what I'll do next time I need to grind meat for burgers or sausage. Might just have to invest in a stand alone meat grinder. Yikes, those things are expensive!
