Rated 5 out of 5Â by PJBRD Exactly What I was Looking For
I was looking for the meat grinder accessory for the Kitchen-Aid, and found the accessory pack. The meat grinder works as well as I hoped. It easily ground several pounds of pork shoulder very efficiently. It is easy to attach to the mixer and just as easy to disassemble and clean. I do not know how much I will use the other attachments, but the booklet provided actually did generate some ideas! I will definitely be using the meat grinder attachment regularly. Since it is so easy and efficient, I can buy less expensive whole pieces of beef, pork, and poultry and grind them myself. This will save a decent amount of money.

I bought this to use for making applesauce. We used 5 bushels of apples and it was quick and easy. It processed the skin, seeds and stems into a tidy, compact mound that was efficiently pushed out of the machine. I was worried the machine might overheat since we were using this for several hours, but I did not have any problems at all. It does take awhile to clean the strainer, however, and I did not want to let it sit in water since there was mention of rusting. So, I would recommend this if you have a large project- making applesauce, tomato sauce, etc since you do have the cleanup of the strainer.

My Dad bought my Mom her 1st Kitchenaid stand mixe when I was 9 yrs old. At the same time he got the 3 premium attatchment groups. I grew up with these and when I got married I informed my husband that if he ever wanted to eat that these same items were as necessary to my kitchen as the stove. My favorite piece is the shredder (great for shredding large blocks of cheese). Oh yeah, my Mom's original mixer... still going strong, being used by the 3rd generation of cooks in my family 44 years later.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Grandma Alice I got my kitchenaid mixer 37 years ago, for Christmas
This has been the only item that has stayed with me for that long. My daughter is 22, married,1 child +one on the way. It is with great honor that I present her with her very own kitchenaid this Christmas! She will also get the accessories, even if she just uses the shredder for cheese, like I do! My machine has worked fine for 37 years,and the only complaint I have is they didn't come in all the pretty colors all those years ago!
