Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jo Best grinder ever!
I was a little unsure when I ordered the grinder because of the reviews about the grinder not working correctly. When I received my grinder and used it I was very happy. I had no problems with he products function. I have used it several times and still have not had any problems. I have ground beef, Chicken and deer. It did a great job and very fast. I honk all you have to do is read the directions to make it work.

I LOVE my Kitchen Aid stand mixer. I use it all the time for baking and cooking. For that purpose it works great. However, I have purchased the meat/food grinder attachement. My intention was to make homemade ground beef pattys for burgers. The machine will not grind the steak or roast to burger. It gets clogged right away. Even worse that the few bits of ground burger that make it out are coated in black greese from the axle. This machine is not cut out for use as a food grinder. I'm very unhappy with this aspect. More so disappointed. Much of my reason to invest in Kitchen Aid was because of the various accessories compatable with the machine.

This is one that we bought to replace our one that was determined to be a loss due to a fire in our home. I have used other meat grinders and feel this does not even come close to how they worked. I have never had any problems with this. I would highly recommend this to a friend!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Erik Terrible food grinder. Unless you like Grease.
Wasted several pounds of ham. Ran some through, looked great then noticed ALOT of black particles. Pulled the grinder apart, and the axle was covered in grease, also coating all the meat. Nice design boys.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MedicCook Does the job as long as it lasts
This is the second FGA I've had in the last 15 years..first one was used maybe 10 times in 5 years or so and then the housing split apart. Tossed it and then bought a new one, have had it for about a year now and it gets used maybe twice a month and where the set screw for where it attaches to the mixer has basically drilled out. Now the set screw is biting into the drive shaft. Trying to decide if I want to buy another one of these or buy a completely separate one..

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Chubby Chef Good Idea - mediocre execution
i've been using this attachment on my food processor for the past week to make ground pork for dumplings but no matter how tightly i screw on the plate, the ground meat starts pouring out of the sides of the screw cap, ultimately clogging the grinder. it could have been an amazing attachment that would have been a big time saver but now i rarely use it unless i'm forced to. please fix the design so that the ground meat doesn't just seep out all over the place...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Fire LTChef Disappointed, not durable.
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.

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.
