LEM Products 5-Pound Stainless Steel Vertical Sausage Stuffer
5 Reasons to Make Your Own Sausage:
- Taste: Your sausage will taste better. You can customize your preferred blend of spices and seasonings.
- Quality: You're choosing which cuts of meat you're using. You will never wonder if a nose or ear or another unwanted part is in your sausage!
- Health: You add as little or as much fat and salt to your sausage as you want. Plus, you're not adding chemicals, additives, or preservatives-uless you want to.
- Control: If someone else processes your game, then you have zero control over the processes they use.
These single gear stainless steel stuffers set the bar for performance and dependability.
The precision machined carbon steel gears are manufactured to eliminate slippage and wear, and won't rust or collect germs. Cylinder is easily removed for clean-up. The hard plastic piston with built-in release valve allows air to escape, making your job easier. These are reliable, high performance, gear-driven stuffers that will last. For additional protection, the 5 lb. Stuffer now includes a protective gear box cover. This innovation takes safety and durability to the next level by ensuring your gears and your food are well protected.

I would give it five stars except for the following two complaints: The handle attaches with an allen screw (wrench provided), but it comes loose with use and I have had the handle fall off in mid-crank a few times. I can't seem to get it tight enough to stay on for a whole 5 lbs of sausage making. Also, it would be nice if the manufacturer would smooth the excess plastic off the ends of the tubes before shipping - if you don't do it your casings will tear as you load them.
I finally wised up and started reading reviews on Amazon concerning stuffers in the price range I could afford. From the reviews I read concerning this stuffer it appeared the only downside was the fact it took a fair bit of cranking to remove plunger assembly so the hopper could be refilled. All in all, it seemed just about everyone loved this stuffer so I took the plunge and bought one. "I am now a HAPPY sausage stuffer!! This stuffer did indeed make stuffing sausage so much easier and I can operate by myself, hip, hip hooray!!
The other reviewers did a fine job describing how this stuffer performs so I won't bother to repeat the raves here but I would like to add a couple thoughts. First, it is easy to clean this unit. When you're taking it apart to clean it, don't forget to remove the o-ring on the plunger in case any meat fragments got under the o-ring. It's easy enough to do. I just carfully used a butter knife to slip under and lift the o-ring out of it's groove. Just be careful so you don't damage toe ring. The second suggestion I have works great but the LEM folks will probably frown on this one. In place of the crank handle, I use a cordless, variable speed DeWalt drill motor coupled with a 6 point 3/8 drive 9/16" socket. I also adjust the drill motor so that it will slip (screwdriver setting) so it's impossible for me to crank to hard and damage anything. It's so easy to vary my stuffing speed with this set up and it only takes a few seconds to crank the plunger back out so I can refill the hopper.
One other thing I did was before I ever used the stuffer, I removed the gear cover and I packed the gear housing full of food grade synthetic grease. Those metal gears will be around long after I'm dead and gone!! If the LEM folks want to void my warranty, I'm fine with that. As well as this thing is built and the material used to build it with, I don't see much chance of it coming apart.
Sorry for such a long review. I seldom review items I buy but in this case, I decided to share my tidbits in case anyone is interested. Y'all have a GREAT day!!!
All of that and clean up was simple and easy. I like the new design that enclosed the gears. I can't say enough about how excited and please I am with the LEM 5 Pound Stainless Steel Vertical Sausage Stuffer. It is a real winner.
You get what you pay for! This LEM 5 lbs. Sausage Stuffer "EXCELLENT"! Very well build, Stainless Steel, and works with NO EFFORT! Wonderful!
This Stuffer is definitely a Commercial Stuffer, No Homeowner stuff here! I've been making all types of Sausage. Beef, Pork, Chicken, and Turkey. I am experimenting with all types of Sausages. I must try Squirrel, and my wife's Cat is missing . . . You'll love this Stuffer!
