Â by SharonCooks Very disappointed
I came here to report large cracking in the FGA and assumed since Kitchenaid stands for quality that it would be covered by a warranty. At a retail price of over $60 this shouldn't break so easily. It's a few years old however it has been used how many times?? maybe 7 ??

I was paying double for ground chicken; now I'm paying half the price.
Rated 1 out of 5Â 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.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by S&G Room for improvement
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.
