Bottom line: if you need extra iron in your diet, look no further, this is the product for you. For the rest of us, stay far away. It just sucks I'm 2 days over 1 month return policy... I'd give zero start if it was an option.
I unpacked the new unit and put the old one up on the shelf (fortunately I didn't toss it), and my first surprise was the new (improved?) design of the pusher. As shown in the picture, the old pusher was a nice, smooth, tubular unit, while the new one was basically a flat piece with a clumsy cutout for your hand, and a round disk at the bottom for pushing the food. I not only found this to be odd-looking and clumsy to use, but the worst part is that the food easily works its way around the small disk and accumulates to the thinner shaft so that after pushing, you lift it to add more food, and some of the clinging bits then fall off and land in various places. I put up with this for maybe 10 minutes, then cleaned it, tossed it in the drawer and grabbed the pusher from my old unit.
The second surprise was the redesigned cutting blade, as part of the draw for buying a new unit was to have a nice, new, SHARP blade. As I have tried to show in the photos, the old blade appears to be a part that may have started as cast iron, then machined as needed, whereas the new blade (albeit nice and shiny) appears to be stamped from a piece of metal (assuming steel). I didn't think this would be a problem, but I could not have been more wrong.
I have bought boneless lamb legs to make my own ground lamb for years, and have never had a problem till now. I know what I am doing, and I cut the lamb into the usual pieces, roughly 3/4" square. Shortly into the process it not only became difficult to push, but what was coming out was more like mush and could not be easily pulled off the grinding plate. I unscrewed the retainer and found that bits of sinew had wound all around the prongs of the blade, and also around numerous holes in the disk, and it took several minutes to clean before I could resume. Again I stress that I have done this numerous times with the old unit and never had this problem!
Unfortunately I had purchased this 5 to 6 weeks before my first use. Had I used it sooner it would have been returned, but now I am stuck with it. Fortunately I kept the old unit, so I have at least salvaged the pusher, the blade, and the cutting disc on the old unit was also different than the two that came with the new one, so I now have three discs to use. But shame on KitchenAid for cutting quality on what WAS an outstanding attachment!
Once I started the process of grinding the semi-ground pork, everything was fine. The manual recommends grinding meat twice and I was happy with the texture on the second grind. However, it was then that I noticed grayish spots in parts of the pork that were coming out of the grinder. Once I saw that 3 times, I stopped grinding, cleaned up, disassembled the parts, cleaned those, went on Amazon, printed out a return shipping label for the box, packed the grinder up and will be taking it to a UPS outlet tomorrow. I'm THAT disappointed. I've never returned a product so quickly but I can't stand by this product and recommend it.
1) While the product is plastic, the material quality is exceptional and is very durable.
2) Having two grind sizes was very beneficial, I did a double grind (large first, then the smaller size) and the quality of the ground meat was as good if not better than the store.
3) The attachment was very easy to take apart and clean. The product material cleaned very easily and all of the mechanical pieces were easy to remove and reassemble.
1) This grinder had a very hard time grinding fat. As we processes the elk meat, we added beef fat to accommodate for the lean meat and the fat caked to the inside of the grinder and auger forcing me to take the grinder apart and clean it every few pounds of grinding making it very time consuming. I was able to work around this by grinding all the meat on the larger grinder setting without fat and when I came back to do the finer grind, I added the fat and it didn't bind up as much. With that said, this would concern me if I were grinding up even a few pounds of fatty beef or pork.
2) The cutter needed to be cleaned throughout the grinding process to remove gristle that would tend to wrap around the cutter, which would add resistance to the grinder making it so that I had to push pretty hard to get the meat to grind.
3) The plunger seemed a little flimsy and wasn't very comfortable to push the meat into the grinder. it could start to hurt your hand after a while.
All in all, I was very satisfied that with the product especially considering the cost compared to standalone meat grinders. I don't believe that the product is intended to grind 40 lbs of meat in one shot however, for general use at home a few pounds at a time, this is a great product and I would certainly buy it again.
