Â by Bonnie B17 No problems for me!
I must admit, I was a little leery about buying this attachment after reading all of the bad reviews. But, one of my main reasons for buying the Kitchenaid Artisan Mixer, besides baking of course, was to get the meat grinder and sausage stuffer attachment, so I could make home made kielbasa like my mom used to. I can't understand why these other reviewers had so many problems. I grew up helping my mom and dad make sausage, so I pretty much knew what I was doing. I didn't have any problems with air bubbles, and the plunger from the meat grinder worked fine to help push the meat through to stuff it. A full size casing fit onto the stuffer just fine, of course you have to bunch it up, but it fit. The end result was perfect kielbasa, and I'm proud to be able to carry on my mom and dad's legacy.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Nichjake Worst product I've ever dealt with
Products that work poorly or break quickly are annoying, but not nearly as annoying as products that do not work at all and do more harm than good. Such is the case with this piece. I tried it twice, once as directed and once trying to troubleshoot...no matter what I tried this piece does not work for stuffing. I managed to get a few links, in about an hour. This is unacceptabe. It takes too long and works too poorly to produce decent quality sausage. The meat gets too warm, the machine turns it into a nasty paste and it incorporates so much air that what little is produced, is a terrible product. This will be going in the trash. The grinder portion is OK, very slow but it get the job done. The stuffer is where the problem lies.

I DO AGREE WITH EVERYONE ABOUT THE PUSHER. I FIXED THE PROBLEM BY PURCHASING A WOODEN DOWEL THE SAME DIAMETER AS THE TUBE. YOU CAN ROUND BOTH ENDS WITH SAND PAPER AND SOAK IN OLIVE OIL FOR A DAY YOU GET NO MEAT STICKING ON THE PUSHER AND NO AIR POCKETS. HOPE THIS HELPS EVERYONE.

I found this to be a very easy to use accessory. I don't understand the negative reviews unless it's simply user error. It worked great for me.
