Sausage Stuffer Kit is rated 1.5714 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pretty awful Don't waste your money. It seems like a good/cheap accessory to add to your food grinder, but it's way more frustrating than its worth. Took me and my roommate over an hour to get ~2lbs of bratwurst stuffed with this thing. Inconsistent feed, tons of air bubbles, the meat pusher they include with the grinder kit works well for grinding but is worthless for stuffing already ground foods... It's a terrible system.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful! I bought this to make hiking snack sticks. It is terrible. Takes forever to stuff sausage of any length and the stuffer does not fit the vertical column to feed the meat into the spiral. This means that the meat goes AROUND the stuffer and shoots back up, so you are literally accomplishing 15% of the sausage you should be. No way recommend, I'll be looking for a new sausage stuffer or will just have it done professionally.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Possible, just like herding cats. It can be done. With some youtube research and a lot of stubborn determination, I made about 2 dozen satisfying-looking sausages. The other reviewers are largely correct, however - it's not very good. I can attest to the meat-grinding potential of attachment. It does a fine job cutting pork, with which I've had significant trouble in the past due to its high fat content. Though the blade is prone to getting choked up on the gristle, I was able to get through 14 pounds of pork shoulder with only one stop to remove excess fat. I recommend following the 1-inch cube guide lines more or less, however, because a longer strand of meat, while within the capacity of the grinder, doesn't do well with the worm and causes excess strain on the mixer. 1.5 x 1.5 inch squares worked fine for me. Then there's the sausage stuffer. With all that ground pork, I went out and bought the horn (they're sold separately at our local Fred Meyer) and followed the instructions to the T. This would be a great sausage maker for a proctology student, because I was basically stuffing the intestines by hand. I think that the problem isn't with the horn being plastic, though. With the ring screwed on completely, I had no meat-leakage and no air getting in through the seal. The real problem with this is that the worm was definitively designed to grind cohesive meat, not push deconstructed granules. The worm has a significant-enough gap between it and the wall of the chamber that as it tries to push the meat forward, it squelches backward over the screw and makes no progress. The only way to get it to go forward is to pressurize the the meat from behind by pressing more into the chamber from above. Here's where everyone is running into air. The push-bar/ring-loosener combo that comes with it is also designed for the grinder. While it serves its purpose well there, it was also given a nice gap around the sides, so it would be easy to use to push meat and vegetables with. That gap is where all the meat squirts up from, because in order to push a (practical) liquid, you need a seal. You won't find it here. The result is that when you pull up on your plunger, you create a large vacuum that the freshly squelched meat falls back on, making an air pocket. This gets into your sausage casing and you start over or struggle through to the end. I won't recommend the procedure, but I followed a how-to-sausage video online which was titled "How to Make Homemade Sausage" by food farmer earth (I'm not affiliated, but I am grateful. I thumbs-upped it). In the video, the guy conveniently used this same system. His technique, and the one I followed, was to forgo the plunger and push the meat in by hand. The tunnel to the worm is long enough your fingers can't get in there, but I used three fingers at once anyway to be certain of my safety and to get enough pressure to move the sausage. What you're doing is essentially pressing the meat by hand through a long funnel into a casing. If you're careful, you get little or no air this way. My best was about 3 feet of sausage before air got in. If you keep the air that gets in up at the horn, you can largely keep it out of your sausage. Poke holes in the links when you're all done to release any air you missed, and the spin it a little more to tighten it. Also, if you're doing multiple flavors like I did, I'd recommend a drop of food coloring on the end of one flavor to signal when the last of it has come out Slap the next flavor on top and keep forcing it through. That way you don't have to start this grueling process over from the beginning, since you already have a chamber-full of meat with no air in it. Oh, yeah, and you can get WAY more than "3 or 4 feet" of casing on there effectively. TL;DR It's a good enough grinder for even fatty pork almost-warm meats, but the sausage stuffer horn was a nice afterthought that they didn't modify the grinder to work with it at all. Grinder: B+/A-, Stuffer: 60% D Still Reading Because I'm Enraptured: Tomorrow I plan to grind the next 12 two pork shoulders (there was quite a sale) but instead of using the mixer, I'll poke the horn though a gallon ziploc bag, fill it with meat, and squirt it into the casing like it was frosting. That'll be a whole lot easier on my hands, back and feet, I think.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from decent meat grinder, unacceptable sausage stuffer Last night, I used the KitchenAid FGA to grind 20 pounds of pork butt. Although it was a bit slower than dedicated grinders, and required me to cut the raw meat into smaller chunks, I knew what I was probably getting into with an entry-level attachment for an existing appliance and was generally pleased with the results. After refrigerating the ground meat overnight, I expected to have an equally satisfying experience putting the ground pork into casings using the KitchenAid SSA. Unfortunately, that was not the case. The tapered stuffing horn isn't long enough to accommodate a standard length of hog casing without bunching up, and the reduced diameter of the nozzle output increases resistance and makes pushing the ground meat into the throat of the FGA a real chore. The critical flaw it that the pusher/wrench tool (while it works fine for pushing meat into the auger/worm mechanism for grinding) is not properly designed for pushing already ground meat into the auger/worm mechanism for stuffing sausages. It doesn't make an airtight seal with the throat of the FGA like you get with single-purpose stuffers that have an o-ring, and it doesn't have an escape valve for trapped air to get pushed out. The result is a messy and ineffectual stuffing effort that's more frustrating than anything else. I love all my KitchenAid appliances and accessories, but this is the exception. I will continue to use the KitchenAid FGA for grinding small batches of meat, but I will be going out to get a real stuffer tomorrow. Today's experience with the SSA was bad enough that I have no desire to repeat it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from stuffer is useless We used our Kitchenaid Mixer to make sausage. The grinder attachment worked well, we ground 16 lbs. of pork. However when we tried to stuff the sausage this Stuffer would not feed the sausage. It is totally useless. We had to run out to Sportsman's Warehouse and buy a sausage stuffer (Lee Vertical Stuffer), it worked perfectly. Don't waste your money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolutely Useless This is absolutely useless for stuffing sausage. If the plunger had the same diameter as the throat - so that it could act more like a piston - it might have some value, but it would still take an inordinate amount of effort. As it is, it took me forever to stuff just three links' worth and the continuous plunging up and down turned the sausage into an emulsified paste.
