Use these lightweight plastic tubes to stuff your home-ground meats into natural casings for hand-made sausages. The small tube shoots out breakfast-sausage-size links; the larger one is great for boudin blanc, Italian sausage, and more. Each works in conjunction with KitchenAid's food grinder attachment, and the set comes with instructions for handling and stuffing casings. Tubes are dishwasher-safe. --Betsy Danheim

Very good product, does the job.
Tina Theo
Also, it creates air pockets inside the stuffed sausage or even the casings that have been loaded onto the sausage tube.

We make our own sausages and this attachment or my kitchen aid stand mixer is great addition.

I started learning about sausage stuffing in order to make a good andouille for jambalaya, gumbo, etc. Most decent equipment out there will run anywhere from $[...]-$[...] for a decent stuffer. Double that total and you can get a grinder as well. If you're going to make consistently large batches (25 lbs or more at a time) then you're probably going to want to invest in those.

However, if you're just learning and starting out and already have a KitchenAid and the associated grinder, then the stuffing attachment for less than $10 is a no-brainer. I've used it a couple of times now and I can say that it makes high-quality sausage without a problem.

I have noted a couple of negative reviews for this product. Not knowing the specifics of how those people used the product, I can note some things I learned on my own, and from a site. That is an excellent site about andouille and sausage stuffing in general (especially with a KitchenAid).

1. When grinding, make sure the blade is in. I forgot to do this on my first batch and it turned the meat into paste and was impossible to get the grinder to work properly (which is why they include it).

2. Make sure you keep the meat very cold. I haven't had to cool the attachments, although that might help, especially when the meat isn't the coldest.

3. Use the coarse grind plate for sausage. You can the fine grind plate (for hot dogs for example), but I would recommend just using the coarse plate and running the meat through multiple times for a finer grind on your sausage. The grinder can get some tissue wrapped around the feeder and it could require some disassembly and cleaning (might take 3-5 minutes), especially with the fine grind plate.

Once you realize how it properly is assembled for stuffing, you realize how great a product it is. TAKE OUT THE BLADE AND GRINDING PLATE. If you don't remove these, it will seem impossible to stuff a full length casing. It took me an hour doing this. I dissembled, and removed the blade and plate, replacing it with the plastic spinner in the box, and once I did that, the auger did its job and started pulling the meat through, instead of the vicious plunger stuffing that was needed before.

Once this was done, I stuffed 10lbs in about 30 minutes (50 links). My recipe:

10 lbs pork shoulder
2 lbs bacon (unsliced)
2 lbs ultra-sharp cheddar (shredded)
2 tbs ground fennel
2 tbs ground corriander
2 tbs ginger
1 tbs ground mustard
1 tbs chili powder
2 tbs red flake pepper
1/4 cup water
sprinkling of salt

Use natural hog casings and your all set.

Sausage making is an artform. It can be difficult to get the hang of, but with the right info you can make wonderful, fresh sausage and feel good about the ingredients inside. This sausage attachment works pretty well. The hopper is a little small, but unless you are making a ton at a time, it's not a deal breaker. It's important to keep the meat really cold throughout the process though or the fat will melt and could hurt your mixer engine. I picked up The Mixer Bible which has about 35 sausage recipes along with 300 other recipes for the mixer and it's other attachments. I really like the book and it walks you through the ins and outs of working with all the attachments.

I purchased this kit along with the food grinder attachment so that I could make sausage without spending a ton on a separate stuffer. I'm now going to buy a separate stuffer. The kit worked, after a fashion, however...

Being a conversion kit to the grinder, it naturally is elevated about a foot or so above the counter. The means that you cannot allow the stuffed casings rest on the counter as you stuff. The weight pulls the casing off the horn.

Also, trying to feed the ground meat through the machine was messy and difficult. You had to feed meat in, add more meat periodically, control the feeding of the casing, hold the sausage as it filled and, since you're doing all this stuff at once, start and stop the machine periodically. It's nearing impossible and very frustrating for one person to do alone.

Also, depending on the consistency, much of the meat came back up the feeder neck as I pulled the plastic plunger out. This means re-feeding the meat 3 or 4 times before it actually gets through the machine. A /very/ slow process.

In combination with the food grinding attachment, this accessory for the Kitchen Aid mixer makes short work of any sausage making task you set before it. I've helped friends cook feasts for 200+ people with this attachment and everyone eating was stunned at the short amount of time it took us to make their fresh, homemade sausage.
This attachment beats a hand-crank grinder and extruder easily. And because it attaches to the mixer itself, I've found it far more stable and easy to access than the grinder-extruder combinations that mount to the countertop. With precious little in terms of countertop space, the mixer takes up more room, but the ease of use more than makes up for that. In combination with the food grinder, I can process an entire deer's worth of meat in an evening with this attachment.
Meat sausage isn't the only thing you can process with this fine attachment. Fruit sausages work equally well and the opening in the extruder is wide enough even for larger items. For the more creative among us, you can use the extruder to fill things like balloons and other awkward items much more easily than with a funnel and an extra pair of hands. You'd be surprised at exactly how many things you'll find you can use this attachment for.
The cleanup of this attachment is a breeze. Nothing sticks to the plastic and soapy hot water makes short work of a dishwashing task that would otherwise be onerous on the hand-crank machines. Better yet, throw it in the dishwasher. For the work I've put mine through, this attachment paid for itself based on ease of use alone before I was done with my first batch of sausage.
