    Need a meat grinder

    So, I'm looking for a meat grinder. I'm ready to start making sausage primarily. I have a Kitchenaid mixer, but don't like their grinder attachment. I found this one that works on my mixer. It looks much better than the plastic version by Kitchenaid.

    Am I barking up the wrong tree looking for an attachment like this, or should I look at a stand alone device? I'm looking for something that is powered, has multiple dies and can accept stuffing tubes. Any suggestions?

    I'm no help there. I have one that has been in the family for generations. It clamps to a table and is powered by a human turning the crank. Needless to say, it gets used, but not regularly.

    Yea, my mom offered me one of those.

    I have a feeling that this may go like the bacon has gone. I thought I'd make that every other month, or so. I'm now making a batch every 9 days to keep all of the friends and family happy.

    So, I'm looking for a 'letric one.

    I used one 2 weeks ago...if it wasn't the same, it was darn close. I made up about 50 lbs of deer meat sausage in a couple of hours.Thats with blending in some pork sausage with it. If ou have the bigger Kitchen Aide, it should work well. My son keeps it sharp by rubbing the plates over fine grit sandpaper of a very flat granite stone every year. But he processes a lot of sausage. I'm going to get me one....hopefully santa reads this

    It looks like the one you found is good and sturdy, just like your mixer. I've actually used our mixer and the plastic attachments and have had nothing but good results.

    I don't remember the exact model of the mixer, but it is one that the bowl goes up and down, not a tilt head model. I'm leaning in that direction. I'm already in gadget overload.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I think we have one just like it. Works well but wouldn't want to run it all day.

    Wife wanted a new grinder last year, and she has the KitchenAid mixer. She just didn't want the one on the mixer. So I kept looking and found the

    Stx Megaforce 3000 , last yr price around $150.00 . Used it guessing 6 times so far she likes it .

    Man, I don't know what your full expectations are for your grinder, but I can tell you that that attachment did not even come close to cutting it for me. I've used various hand grinders, completely worn out a kitchen type model, and then finally got one that I am happy with. Now, when I go to use mine I'm grinding around 4 or so deer plus pork at once. If you are only doing a pound or two at a time that attachment might work for you. Personally I like the #12 size grinders. I have an LEM. I would also recommend the cabelas grinders (the good ones, cabelas has multiple flavors). Of course the grinders I listed go for 4-500 bucks. If you don't do much you could go with a #8 in those brands.
