Not worth getting

By Peter

from Arizona

Comments about KitchenAid Sausage Stuffer Kit:

You, basically, have to stuff the sausage with the plunger. The grind worm didn't push the sausage into the casing well at all. Even with steady and gentle pressure the sausage meat mostly oozed back up the feeder tube. Very bad design,

worked great for me.... first timer

By The new Sausage King of South Elgin

from South Elgin, Il

Comments about KitchenAid Sausage Stuffer Kit:

Received it as a gift. First time ever attempting to make my own sausages. I cubed the meat, put it in the freezer for a 1/2 hr, then ran it through the grinder, then mixed in herbs and seasonings. Then put it back in the freezer for another 1/2 hr to stiffen it up again. I then ran it through the grinder into the prepared natural casing. I had to work it a bit the fill the casing evenly and push out a little air here and there. But I thought it went pretty smoothly considering it was the first time I used this thing. There was one thing that i didn't like but it wasn't a gamechanger. The grinder got a little warm after running it for a while. I put it in the freezer with the meat before grinding/stuffing the second round. As long as the meat was cold enough to start with, it never got too warm by the time I got into the casing. I'm no Abe Froman, but I think the negative reviews were due to user error or too high of expectations.... I thought this unit worked rather well, especially for the price. Just don't expect to crank out 100 sausages an hour.

Worked fine for me.

By OldSmokerDude

from Eau Claire, WI

Comments about KitchenAid Sausage Stuffer Kit:

Was totally impressed with the grinder attachment for processing deer, and wanted to try making sausage, too, so bought the sausage maker kit. I'm with the last reviewer -- I think the people with negative reviews must have been doing something wrong. I just made 5 lbs. of pepper sticks and it went very smoothly. Had none of the problems described below, with the exception of one or two air bubbles; even that was rare, and a pin hole solved it.

The meat I used was ground fine beforehand, which I'm guessing makes a big difference. Trying to grind AND stuff simultaneously doesn't seem to work, which is probably why the instructions don't recommend that.

I had a helper feeding the ground meat while I stuffed the casings, which definitely helped -- I think I could have done it single-handed, but it wouldn't have been as easy. All in all, the sausage maker worked fine, and I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

I was skeptical when my wife wanted to buy one of the pricier KitchenAid mixers. But I've processed eight deer in the last two months with it, and I'm a believer. Hobart it ain't, but it's pretty darn good.

Don't believe the negative reviews, they're doing it wrong.

By Kleinen Küchenchef

from Chicago

Comments about KitchenAid Sausage Stuffer Kit:

The attachment works perfectly. The complaints about the plunger being too small and the air in the casing is due to user error. A little bit of air gets into every sausage maker. For the first pass, tie a knot in the casing for the end and add a tiny hole. Push all of the filling into the casing until it's one continuous tube. Start from the end and choose the length of sausage you want, then make a gap to get the end of the link. Twist the casing around to tighten. Continue down to the tube to keep making same sized sausages. Let the cool. Before or after cooking, depending on whether you smoke, grill, boil or fry, you can cut the spaces between the sausages. Go look at some youtube videos for how-to. The extra air is fine, you just have longer casings than you would otherwise

Bad design

By Chef Rich

from Phoenix

Comments about KitchenAid Sausage Stuffer Kit:

I have both the new and old stuffer grinder. the old one cracked after many years, not unexpected. Bought a new one with the magic all-in-one plunger wrench, its garbage. Luckily I still had the wooden plunger from the old grinder, which works wonderfully. Seems like the designer never actually used the new plunger.

Disappointed

By MisHell's Kitchen

from Ottawa, ON Canada

Comments about KitchenAid Sausage Stuffer Kit:

Bought this product a week ago. Had my daughter and a good friend come over to have a sausage making party. Everyone who gave this product a critique about the plunger is correct. I was not grinding the meat as it was cut extremely small but used the auger to stuff the casings. Too much air got into the casing because the plunger didn't work well. The meat continually got stuck, squashed, oozed from gaps everywhere. So I came online to see if Kitchenaid makes a 1.5" attachment and found that I'm not the only one extremely disappointed. So sorry I wasted my money on this. There were a lot of other products comparable in price that would have been better. I trusted Kitchenaid name. I won't do that again

Terrible plunger design

By Unhappy

from PA

Comments about KitchenAid Sausage Stuffer Kit:

Like other reviewers have stated, the plunger's diameter is just too small and doesn't create any type of seal and also allows air in. While pushing the meat down the tube the meat just squishes around the edges. I even kept the meat in the freezer ahead of time to keep it cold as is recommended for sausage making. I abandoned attempting to make sausages altogether and ended up pan frying the meat in patties. This product is so bad it actually prompted me to write my first review of a product ever.

Really flawed design

By Ohieaux

from Ohio

Comments about KitchenAid Sausage Stuffer Kit:

As others have noted, the plunger design is inadequate. As the plunger is smaller in diameter than the feed tube, there is no way to keep the auger full. If you use it, you will starve the casing and introduce air into the system. I would guess that a larger diameter plunger might work, but I'm not going to waste more money on this attachment.
