I like to use the grinder to make ground beef, pork or chicken. I find the knife and cutter plates do not maintain sharpness to cut the meat but pushes the meat through as a paste. Does KitchenAide sell improved knives and cutter plates? I would purchase. Please reply. Fred Schuba

Customer Reviews

Food Grinder Attachment for Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 122.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Metal dust contaminating food - Beware 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Grinder except has cracked. 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from unable to use for anything I bought this a while ago and today realized I can not use it for ANYTHING. A while back, I tried to grind meat with it, only to have it fail completely (the blade only mushed the meat, didn't grind it and the machine quickly became backed up), and today I tried to grind sliced ham, only to realize after grinding two pounds of it, that the middle of the grinder was rubbing metal on metal, pushing a gray fine metal infused substance into the ground ham. Needless to say, I had to throw out the two pounds that I ground, had to buy new ham and had to use my old hand-cranked grinder. Disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Problems with Food Grinder maybe assembly problem by user 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 I wonder if that is a part that people don't realize is essential to the operation of the 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor construction of the grinder body. 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Black stuff in my cheese 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I loved this food grinder, as I prefer to grind my own ground beef... however, the plastic cracked the metal piece/shaft that goes into the machine... after only using it a few times. I use my mixer for everything, but won't be using this accessory any longer. :-(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke on third use About this and this is the third time I've used it I was grinding bread and the housing in front broke off. I'm trying to grind fresh Meats at home but since this broke I can no longer do that. I love my KitchenAid mixers should have listened to the reviews and not bought this. I love how it grinds meat but I'm very disappointed
