In attached video you can see assembly and usage of this grinder. It fits my KitchenAid mixer very well. The fit it tight and does not need to be re-tightened. I purchased round steak which is less than $3, it made much better tasting hamburger than the store-bought ground meat. The grinder drew in the meat in easily, I only had to push the very last pieces. The grinder is easy to clean, there was not much left inside. The little bits of fat were stuck to the plate which I rinsed with hot water. The plate (the piece with the with the holes) is made stainless steel and can be washed in the washer.
A few words about cleaning. The grinder is made out of three different materials, and the washing instructions are different depending on the material.
The following parts are made out of stainless steel and can be washed in the dishwasher.
~ The 3x Grinding plates
~ 2x Stuffing tubes
The plastic food pusher also can washed in the dishwasher.
~ Food pusher (Plastic)
The Grinder body, grinding worm, food tray, locking ring are Aluminum die-cast. Since its surface is polishing only, without extra nonstick coating it will discolor if you washed in dishwasher. Even though this does not ruin it does make it look bad. The aluminum parts should be washed by hadn in soapy water.
The package also include the sausage making attachments. I will post an update when we use them.
Overall, I am quite pleased. Using the grinder did not make much extra time to set up or clean, I was able to use better cuts of mean, and there is less worry about contamination that happens with the store-bought ground meat.
