Kitchener 5-Lb. Stainless Steel Sausage Stuffer
I like to make Peperoni and Pepper sticks out of wild game. I tried using the meat grinder to feed the casings but found that it continued to pulverize the meat. Turned it into mush. I read the reviews on this stuffer and decided to purchase it. Yesterday I stuffed 5 pounds of Goose Pepper sticks. What a dream this machine is. My wife cranked while I fed the casings.
Awesome is the best way to describe this tool. We were both surprised how completely the meat was pushed into the tube. The canister is basically empty when the plunger plate hits the bottom.

Its a nice little stuffer. The only thing sometimes the plastic gears slip. Easy to fill with meat.

I've had this stuffer for about 5 years now. Use it to make Italian sausage. It's been a great product, working flawlessly for years. I did, however, break one of the gear wheels by putting too much pressure on it when I reached the bottom of the barrel. The part was easily purchased from the manufacturer, as the parts list and address was included in the box. I highly recommend.

Bought this to make our own deer sausage and it works great and is perfect size. Would recommend to all hunters.

Great Little Stuffer
Bought this stuffer after seeing recommendations and am not disappointed. Very easy to use; much better than stuffing sausage off the end of a meat grinder. You will want to clamp/bolt it down. After the first use I bolted it to a piece of plywood with countersunk bolts and the clamped it to the table - much better.

Great little stuffer
I used this product to stuff 25# of venison summer sausage. Previously have used my grinder to do this. The stuffer packed the casings nice and tight, leaving no air voids. It's super easy to use, cleans up easily, and does everything it's supposed to. I'm so glad I finally caved in and got this. A great value. It does NOT have a relief valve "to prevent blowouts." It has an air release valve that bleeds off the air on top of the load until the piston is in full contact with the meat. The concerns over the plastic gears are unfounded -- they are heavy nylon gears perfectly suited to the size of this stuffer. You would never need to apply as much force as it would take to damage them. If you plan on using this solo, you MUST bolt it down. If going 2-man, you can leave it loose.

Great job !!!
I've used this now for nearly a YEAR and have run over 175# of meat thru it from Italian to bratwurst and such ... I recently recommended it to my brother-in-law who's getint his shipped to his home now. He does a lot of deer and hog ... I just wish the gears were metal, but I've not seen a problem with the plastic, but I'm a metallurgist and .. therefore biased towards towards them.

A cut above the rest
I spent my whole life cranking the old style meat grinder/stuffer. It took a couple hours and lots of wasted meat left in the auger and funnel housing.
We did 6 lbs. of homemade Polish Kielbasa tonight in 15-20 minutes of stuffing time. The only meat left over amounted to about half a hot dog. Clean up was quick and easy. Well worth the investment. 5 Stars for sure NT.

As others say, plastic gears and only 5 pounds of sausage at a time. OK, fine by me. We used one a full summer and it always worked great. This is a no nonsense product, inexpensive and easy to use. If you need a bigger or stronger one, they are readily available, but for what this is and what it does it is just about perfect !

meat stick maker
Purchased this product because of the difficulty in stuffing the small 17 mm casings and it works just great but you must purchase a small 3/8 in tube .
