We grind our own hamburger so we know what in it. So this was the perfect product.
Just had a small issue when making sausage. Every time you push the meat down through the grinder it forms an air pocket in side the sausage casings. Drove me crazy but over all it’s a good product for the money.
Kitchen aid quality and heavy, well made unit. It works very well for its intended purpose. We are pleased with this purchase and believe you will be, too.
I was taught how to make sausage about 25 years ago, the meat grinders then where sturdy and were bolted to the table and you cranked them by hand. This one seems quite a bit less sturdy feeling.
I wish i had bought this a long time ago. I don’t see how anyone who does a lot of cooking can be without this grinder. I have did so much with this it’s been unbelievable. It makes grinding anything a breeze. I have always used an old fashion grinder that my grandmother had. You know, the old crank one that has to be mounted onto something. This is sooooo much easier and takes a lot less time and energy. I would highly recommend this grinder. No kitchen should be without one.
I received this as an anniversary gift as an attachment for my kitchenaid stand mixer. Unlike other meat grinder attachments i read about, this 1has never given us a problem. Never has gotten clogged at all.
- Good tool
- Superior in every way to the actual kitchen aid brand
- Sturdy and durable
I did notice that the meat needs to be a bit smaller than the kitchenaid grinder would take. It stays nice and cold unlike the kitchenaid. The only drawback is that is it a bit of a surprise when it wiggles about a bit more than the kitchenaid grinder attachment when it is working. But having the carbon steel cutting blade made an excellent texture to the gorund meat. I will not use silicone spray to lubricate the internal parts. I have been using food grade linseed oil which my sausuage making books have as an alternate for my compression sasuage maker and related tools.
I am a professional chef and just received the grinder it fits the kitchen aid profesional 6 quart mixer perfectthe look and feel are awsome, i will agian review after some heavy use.
Exceeded expectations; a rarity these days.
Product quality is good, i am not giving 5 stars just because it is very difficult to wash and sometimes the meat cannot pass through it.
Performed flawlessly and appears well made.

I can’t wait to use this grinder to make my own burgers, sausage & ham salad. Brings back memories of my mom making her own ham salad etc.
I am a beginner to sausage making and i didn’t need a dedicated meat grinder. This is smaller for storage and fits on my kitchen aid blender perfectly. Prior to the purchase i examined the kitchen aid meat grinder and due to all the plastic felt it would not be durable enough. I have no qualms with this unit. It is all metal and very well made. Of hot and sweet italian sausage and it worked admirably. Disassembly and clean-up afterwards was very easy. I can’t wait to try breakfast sausage next.
Easy to uses, handles grinding well, does not clog up, easy to clean. Suggest you chill the meat so that it is almost ready to fereeze but not frozen, works better.
This works great on our kitchen aid mixer work better than the one that kitchen aid sell.
I love that it’s easy to completely take apart and clean.
I gave the chef’s choice as a gift to my daughter who loves to cook. She made a fresh lasagna bolognaise for our post christmas dinner and used this to grind the beef and the pork. It worked very well and cleaned up easily. She oiled it a bit before putting it away. She says the prepackaged ground meat we buy could come from hundreds of different animals. She loves the idea of using one piece of meat that she has selected from a store she trusts.

Wish i has invested in this long ago.
When we got it we tried it out worked great ground are our beef for the grill.
Vary good product and fast delivery.
Works perfectly, cleans up easily.
Better than any original plastic.
Freshly ground hamburger meat is the bombthis product is easy to assemble, easy to use and fun. I purchased chef’s choice sausage stuffing tubes and have used this product to make homemade sausages. The solid metal construction will ensure these product lasts a life time.
Forged, stainless steel cutting blade
Much better than the kitchen aid brand grinder. I wish they made more kitchen aid attachments, like a can opener that kitchen aid no longer makes. Oh yeah, and the kitchen aid brand sausage attachments work well on this. Also, you can place this in the freezer before using it, which is what you want when grinding meat.
This little power house is badass. A lot better than the one kitchenaid offers.
It works very well when you follow the instructions. Breaks down and cleans up easily after use. Use a bit of cooking spray to prevent rusting, store in original box with a cup of dry rice as a desiccant and its all good.
I originally bought the one from the manufacture and did not like the fact that it was plastic , some sausage use paprica or other spices and will discolor the plastic and if you are not careful cleaning it , you will scratch it and than it will always look dirty the one from chefs choice has more attachments is sturdier and i’m not afraid of it breaking it. I did not give it 5 because the plastic pusher seems a little loose thinking of using a wooden dowel machined to fit feeder tube.
This product does what i need it to do. I use it for grinding 5-40 pounds of deer a year, more if we get 2. Saved me lots of money, because my wife has a kitchen aid and i don’t have a meat grinder. Best suited for small amounts of grinding, not for large quantities.
Had the plastic meat grinder attachemt and was not at all happy, used it seveal times. Frustrated so forked up the $$$$$ for this one.
We like and use this device weekly.
Generous metal food hopper with food pusher that stores extra grinding plates
So much better than the plastic version that we had. Grinds much better and faster.
I purchased this unit and am using it to grind sprouted wheat berries, which i am making bread out of. I rate it highly and do not think i would be satisfied with the plastic meat grinder that is also available for the kitchenaid. Some notes:* thoroughly clean the unit after use. The feed chute is hard to clean at the bottom, where it intersects with the auger chamber. * lubricate the (aluminum-on-aluminum) threads to prevent galling. One caution when using your kitchenaid under heavy loads. The motor may overheat when operated at its lowest speeds, because the cooling fan is not very effective at these speeds. Instead, turn the speed up to the middle of the range where the fan runs faster. For those using this grinder to make sprouted wheat berries into dough, i recommend passing the berries through a second time, which results in a finer, more agreeable mouth feel in the dough. Coat your hands and the ‘stomper’ with water (a little goes a long way) to keep the dough from sticking too badly.
Did a wonderful job grinding all 35 lbs of sausage meat.
We had previously bought a kitchen aid plastic version of this and it broke during first use. This stainless steel product is very sturdy and should be around for a very long time.
Worked great, and easy to use.
