Thinking about grinding my own meat. I have a kitchen aid mixer. Is their grinder attachment worth it or should I just buy a grinder?
funny you should ask my wife has the kitchenaid and yesterday we ground up chuck roast for burgers for the very first time ever using the grinder attachment . we set the motor on 4 cut the roast up and it worked great the motor never once bogged down . after grinding the first time we mixed spices in and reground it burgers were awesome

Kitchen aid is good.
Agree with bigphil - Kitchenaid grinder attachment works great. Used it to grind and stuff kielbasi a few months ago.
It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

Lots of people use the KA grinder. I almost bought one as well. After a fair amount of research, I decided to go with a stand alone grinder that has metal gears, and a standard #12 plate size. The KA grinder does not use a standard size plate, so you are limited to whatever plates they offer. I wanted a really coarse grind to use with chili and other dishes, and was able to buy plates with 1/2" and 3/4" holes.
Use the KA, just quick freeze the meat to make it easier, 10-15 min in the freezer then grind.
