Rated 5 out of 5 by Debbie Kitchen Aid mixer and attachment.
I love my Kitchen Aid mixer and use it for all my baking needs. I never had to replace it and I have had it for about 8 years so it is well worth the investment. I also purchase it for my son who wants to be a chef and recently I bought the attachments for him. He can use his imagination to create culinary wonders.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Long time KitchenAid customer Meat Grinder Cracked Housing
My husband bought our KitchenAid stand mixer during the spring of 1989 along with the accessory bundle. It is a fantastic appliance and I couldn't cook as easily without it. I have sung its praises ever since I started using it. As a matter of fact three of my friends/family have bought one based on my insistence that it is a quality product and our daughter and son in law were very happy to receive theirs as a wedding gift from us. That having been said, the housing on the meat grinder is cracked. I can't say when it did cracked as it has languished in the drawer for many years. Also, we have put it in the top tray of the dishwasher to clean and sanitize it and I don't know if we weren't supposed to do that. The plastic could have become brittle and just cracked. After reading the other reviews complaining about the same issue I am thinking my justifications as to why it cracked are less likely. The only reason I am writing this review now after all these years is because I am surprised and upset that it did crack as it really hasn't been used that often. Also when we were making sausage the meat would squish out around the plate area but I attributed that to it being plastic and not able to seal well. I see other people have had the same issue though. I'm sorry for the length of this review. I wanted to be clear on the reason for the complaint as I do like the mixer. So in summary, I fully recommend the stand mixer as it seems to be of good quality and still works great even though it is 25+ years old. I have also bought other KitchenAid appliances, including our refrigerator, based on the normal quality of the company. I cannot recommend buying the grinder accessory though. It seems to have a design or material flaw and just seems cheap in comparison to the rest of the appliance.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Meat Master Would be great to upgrade this away from foriegn plastic.
Re-inventing the wheel didn't work here. Make at least two metal sizes, small and maximum output meat stuffer grinders. How about adding on a set of metal cuber/tenderizers Out of metal! These inferior plastics blow up! Stop it! How did this get past any kind of American quality control? Isn't it time to BEEF up!?

Rated 1 out of 5 by butterfly2014 Horrible!
I purchased this for canning and making large amounts of salsa, hot pepper relish etc. The roto blades are not sharp and it makes mush / juice out of everything instead of slicing or grating. I am beyond disappointed in the attachments for the kitchenaid. If you do something extremely hard it works but not very well. I love my mixer but absolutely hate the attachments I purchased the large package with all of the attachments and the vegetable strainer is a waste as well. The screen is so small that if you do tomatoes you end up with nothing but water and waste all of your tomatoes, Same for apples. Oh, and if you want to do blackberries.. you can't because it clogs up the screen! Also, some grapes you cannot do as well. I really wish this worked or I knew it did not work correctly so I could have purchased something that did work. Save your money!

I really like the attachments I purchased. I have used the meat grinder and the slicer so far and both have been easy to use and made my cooking just a little easier. They aren't hard to clean really just need a good rinsing after use.
