KitchenAid Meat Grinder Attachments FAQ

The wide variety of KitchenAid Meat Grinder Attachments confuses the customers, and they are suspicious to which one to give the priority. We have separated the most frequently asked questions below and hope you will receive the answer to your question regarding meat grinder attachments.

Q: Would one or both of the KitchenAid SSA Sausage Stuffer Kit Attachment for Food Grinder work in conjunction with the bagel die in a Ronco pasta maker? Thanks!

Actually, the sausage tubes are very small in diameters to directly attach to the Ronco Pasta maker. In case you want to attach the sausage tubes to a Ronco, you have to sacrifice one of the pasta dies. You are supposed to cut the center of the die with a metal lathe until the sausage tube fits properly. Afterward, you can use the die as an adapter, and you can add the sausage tube to the KitchenAid mixer attachments pasta maker and have a sausage maker as a result.

Q: I’m confused by the listing; do the meat grinder attachments come with the sausage tubes?

Generally, the sausage stuffer includes only the tubes. You should buy the KitchenAid mixer grinder parts separately.

Q: Does this stuffer extrude a premixed ground mixture? I tried once, and all I got was aerated sausage.

It can extrude a mixture up to 2lbs, but you have to force the meat through the tube. In case you are doing 1 or 2 lbs, it will do the job, but it is very slow for 15 or 20 lbs. It is not worth the effort for more than 2lbs.

Q: Does the FGA blade work for the metal unit?

The KitchenAid Meat Grinder Attachment Blade is designed for the KitchenAid FGA plastic grinder, and it won’t work with metal Kitchenaid meat grinder.

Q:  What kind of metal are the blades made of?

They are made of stainless steel.

Q: My KA stand mixer is new, but the KitchenAid stand mixer grinder attachment is about 15 years old (fga-2). Will this blade work with it?

Probably it should work, as there are no major changes in design, and it fits all models.

Q: Is the KitchenAid JE Citrus Juicer Stand Mixer Attachment easy to clean? I typically dislike juicers because the clean-up process is so difficult.

Yes, it is exceptionally easy to clean thanks to its simple design.

Q: Will it fit the European Kitchenaid model?

It should work for all models, be it a European or American. Perhaps the only difference is the voltage, and it will need a converter to work with US standard. The attachments are universal to all stand mixers, if not they would require a million different attachments for the different models by KitchenAid manufacturers.

Q: Is it made in China?

It is made in the USA.

Q: Can the RVSA Slicer/Shredder Attachment for Stand Mixers dice onions?

It can shred and slice almost anything, but it doesn’t dice. In case you want to achieve the dice effect, you had better use the slicer cup of the meat grinder attachments and make vertical cuts in the onion, as far as the slicer is horizontal and the result ends up with diced onions. But, if you are intended to dice large-scale onions, the answer will be NO.

Q: Is the body metal or plastic?

It is metal surrounded by hard plastic.

Q: Has anyone tried slicing cucumbers? I wanted to make cucumber salad.

Yes, as long as the cucumber itself isn’t too mushy, the slices are just fine! If you have trouble with this or anything else, like cheese, try freezing it for a few minutes first to harden it up before slicing

.Q: Will the KitchenAid shredder attachment shred Gouda cheese?

Very likely you could shred Gouda cheese with one of the blades.

Q: Will it slice almonds? I don’t mean grate or chop. I am looking for thin slices.

Unfortunately, No.

Q: My stand mixer was made before 1990. Do KitchenAid Slicer/Shredder Attachments fit the older machines?

Yes, they absolutely fit the older mixer. If you have the opening in the front, these will fit. You can grate cheese, grind your meat, and make your own juice & wine. You can use the mixer for a wide range of aims.

Q: How many pounds of meat will the grinder grind per minute?

Actually, it is able to grind 3 to 4 lbs.
