Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hibiscus47 Not a meat grinder!!
This was a birthday gift. The only purpose was to grind my own meats. All it does is mash meat and stop after a minute because of the build up of fat, muscle and grizzle. Have to take it apart to pry off glop just to have to do it again and again. Tried with beef and then pork with same results. There are grey pieces of meat dispersed among ground meat Very disappointed with this, even though have 2 mixers that are are by far the best I have used. One mixer was my mom's dating back from 1958 and still runs like a top and my newest is 20 years old in excellent condition.

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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jennifer Grey Ooze coming out when grinding meat.
I invested a lot of money in meat to start grinding my own. I've tried several ways partially frozen to room temperature and gray keeps coming out on every kind of meat. Also meat comes out of grinder at the point of connection to the machine. Very disappointed.

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.]

I bought this with the intention of grinding meats, but grey ooze comes out whenever I try using it. KitchenAid denies there is an issue, but unless you want grey metal shavings on your food, buy another product.

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..
