    Meat Grinder

    Can anyone recommend a good meat grinder? I want to make sausage, but as of right now I know jack squat about making it. I consume enough sausage that I don't want a starter kit I will grow out of in a short period of time.

    Any other sausage making tips you want to give are welcome too.

    FYI -- I do have a kitchen aid mixer. I know they have an attachment.

    k.

    Edit: I don't think my new avatar sits well with talk of sausage. I'll let you read into that comment what you will.

    keep everything as cold as you can even the grinding plates and worm.

    I have a stand alone and a Kitchen Aid attachment. Personally I'd start with the KA attachment and if it's something you think you will really continue on with, then up grade to stand alone equipment .

    i use a 70s vintage Kitchen Aid Attachment (all metal), and it's great! i have heard that the current attachments are not as good.

    I have the plastic Kitchen Aid attachment. It's not my favorite--meat & blood tended to squeeze past the bearing back into the drive mechanism. Kinda nasty. Although since the KA is sitting on the pantry floor waiting for me to replace its stripped gears, it's kinda moot right now.

    Drinky-Gaaru, I'm interested in this myself...like to see what you decide on, and how it works out.

    that is something that doesn't happen with the vintage unit, for sure.
