Kitchener 5-Lb. Stainless Steel Sausage Stuffer
Must Have for Sausage Makers!
I was using the stuffing tubes on my sausage grinder and getting tired of the mess and difficulty of that method of stuffing sausages. The cost of this sausage stuffer put me off, not having used one before. I had concerns about the plastic gears and durability. However, this unit is well-built and plenty strong for sausage stuffing. The nylon gears operate smoothly and are easy to clean. I have made everything from hot dogs to 3 inch salamis with this stuffer, and it functions very well. Using this unit, I can stuff sausage by myself, and very quickly at that. For anyone that does larger batches, i would recommend getting the 15 lb stuffer. My only complaint about this machine is it runs out of meat quickly and needs to be refilled often. This is an enormous improvement over trying to use a stuffing tube attached to a grinder. You won't be sorry you bought this!

I bought this product for my husband for his birthday and he loves it. I works tremendously fast. Great product for the price.

Great Kitchen Tool
We used our new Kitchener Sausage Stuffer to make a batch of English Banger sausages this morning. Stuffer worked much better than the stuffing attachment on my meat grinder. Plastic gears work well. Disassembled easily for cleaning. I mounted the metal base to a board and attached the unit to the kitchen island counter top with two C clamps.

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.
