    Had anybody used a kitchen aid to process game? How effiecent is it? In the market for a new grinder before next season but the wife got a kitchen aid for Christmas so considering just getting the grinder attachment. It's 325 watt so just under .5 HP

    If you read the reviews on Amazon of the Kitchen Aid brand a lot of people complain about particles breaking off and contaminating the meat. I decided to get $150 cabelas brand grinder on sale. This is a photo off amazon. Just be carful what you decide. [​IMG]

    I don't have any other grinders to compare it to, but I haven't had problems with the kitchen aid yet. I have professional 600 (575 watts). I've only used it this season though for 32 lbs of venison and about 6 lbs of hog.

    I'll bet a dedicated grinder would be faster, but the setup I have will be used for years since it works "good enough".

    for occasional grinding it will be fine, for heavy use, IE group of guys sharing or ? it will now be very fast or hold up well ! If you shoot 1 or 2 deer a year go for it

    That's all I have used last 3 seasons. It's slower compared to regular grinder. I usually quarter up, then cut my roast, steaks, stew meat, ECT. Then I cut up chunk to grind. Usually about 2-3 hours I can cut and grind everything. I put mixer on speed #4 for grinding so not to burn engine out. Wife wouldn't be happy. It's worked fine for me so far, but I'm planning on up grading to regular grinder. I killed 3 last year, 2 year before, and 3 in 2015. So 8 deer and stood up so far

    Mine has three under it with pork loin mixed with it. It's a little slow but I don't have anything to compare it with. Price was right so it works for now.

    I used the attachment this past year for my doe and it worked amazing. I just took my time when I was grinding as to not over work the motor and burn it out. Im going to probably use it again this year as to just use what I have and it works amazing.
