    Customer Questions

      Questions on KitchenAid Food Grinder Attachment Model: FGA

      • Q:  is the cutting blade before the cutting plates made of stainless steel or carbon steel?
      • A:  The cutting blade for the Kitchen Aid Food Grinder Attachment is carbon steel.
      • Q:  Can I use the Kitchen Aid food grinder to make a cranberry relish which needs to grinds cranberries and oranges?
      • A:  It will depend on the recipe, and how fine you need to grind the fruit, but this will most likely work well for this.
      • Q:  do you sell the cutting blade for meat grinder? lost mine after using it once.
      • A:  We do not offer the extra parts. You may contact Kitchen Aid directly at 800-541-6390 to inquire about parts.
      • Q:  is the feeder screw plastic or metal ?
      • A:  When I look in the manual on page 3 listed at http://www.everythingkitchens.com/PDFfiles/FGA.pdf, I see that it is both plastic and metal. The core is metal, and the auger on the outside is plastic. I hope this helps.
      • Q:  how do I get the auger out of the meat grinder attachment?
      • A:  The manufacturer's manual says the following on page 3 for assembling the auger onto the food mill, so you would need to reverse these directions for removal. If you want to follow along visually, feel free to open the manual on the product page.

        "Insert the grind worm (A) into the grinder body (B). Place the knife (C) over the
        square shank at the exposed end of the grind worm. Place grinding plate (D) over
        the knife, matching the tabs of the plate with the notches of the grinder body. Place
        ring (E) on grinder body, turning by hand until secured but not over tightened.
        Note: Use wrench (F) for removal only, do not use to tighten ring."
      • Q:  Will this grinder attachment work to grined up deer meat.
      • A:  I copied the following from the manual, so it appears that the FGA Kitchenaid Food Grinder attachment will work just fine for venison.

        "Cut food into small strips or pieces
        and feed them into hopper. Meat
        should be cut into long narrow strips.
        Turn mixer to Speed 4 and feed food
        into hopper using food pusher. Never
        put your fingers in the hopper."

        "Coarse Plate — Use for grinding
        raw or cooked meats, firm vegetables,
        dried fruits and cheese.
        Fine Plate — Use for grinding raw
        meat, cooked meats for spreads and
        bread for crumbs.
        Grinding Meat — For better mix
        and more tender results, grind beef
        twice. Best texture results from grinding
        very cold or partially frozen meat.
        Fatty meats should be ground only

        However, if you are a hunter, and processing a whole deer at a time, you may be wanting something more heavy duty. Check out the LEM meat grinders at http://www.everythingkitchens.com/lem_meat_processing_products.html#meatgrinders. I hope this helps!

      • A:  Hello Betty,

        We appreciate you reaching out to us with your question.

        No one was tried that here or at KitchenAid. The representative told me that you can certainly try but rinse it right out with water afterward so the acid doesn't sit on the parts for too long.

        Hope this helps. Enjoy your day, Betty.

        Thank you,

        Everything Kitchens

    Great addition Review by

    When I owned my restaurant (33 years), I used my Kitchen Aid Meat Grinder to make ham salad for the menu. I used
    1/2 ham and 1/2 bologna. Also boiled eggs, dill pickles and relish. What a time saver, plus we sold out as soon as it was made. I have made it my mission to gift every past employee with a Kitchen Aid Mixer for their wedding. I am also adding the meat grinder this time. They are a pair that fits together.

    Great attatchment Review by

    I recently purchased my mixer, and the majority of the attatchments. I've been slowly trying to use all of them to see how well they work. The meat grinder works great, we usually mix half venison half beef. Excited to see how well it works with that. (Posted on 2/23/16)


    Pretty good product. Review by

    Works well for what it is. Real good for cooked chicken or ham. Raw beef you can have some trouble with the gristle and have to clean it out often. But overall it works well and cleans up quick. (Posted on 12/2/15)


    Kitchenaid Food Grinder attachment....... Review by

    We love our meat grinder.....about the bread crumb person, if you read the instructions.....you are to dry the bread completely first......we made our own sausage and used the fine grinding part....it was smushy, but I loved that....we added lots of herbs and made a smushed tightly sealed patty of sausage.....it was so lean we had to add a tiny bit of olive oil.......Now we can eat with out nitrates and it worked slowly alone as I trimed up the sale priced pork chops..............we love it and will try grinding up meat for some stews...can't wait to do that too.......:) (Posted on 1/9/13)


    Kitchenaid Food Grinder Attachment Review by

    Grinding meat takes forever. It 'mushes' rather than grinds.
    I ground some dried bread into breadcrumbs and later found a lot of plastic from the screw in them.
    I don't recommend this item. (Posted on 12/22/11)


    Kitchen Aid Grinder Review by

    I couldn't be more pleased with the Kitchenaid Food Grinder. Well made and easy to use and clean. Have been making my own ground beef and bulk sausage for several weeks now and there is no comparison to what is available at the supermarket. I love knowing exactly what is going into the food we eat. The only thing missing, according to my husband, are the bits of bones and cartilage. (Posted on 8/18/11)


    Food Grinder Review by

    I am very pleased with my Kitchenaid mixer and the Grinder Attachment. I liked it so well I got one for my son and his new wife as a wedding gift. Outstanding product! (Posted on 5/11/11)


    Food Grinder Attachment Review by

    I purchased my food grinder as a gift, but I am sold on Kitchenaid having two mixers and a 16 cup & 12 cup food processors with most of the attachments. I have used my food grinder to make hundreds of pounds of bratwurst and a variety of other sausages. (Posted on 5/11/11)
