Kitchener 5-Lb. Stainless Steel Sausage Stuffer
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 .

The best part of this stuffer is that either small or large batches of sausages can be accomidated. I had a traditional stuffer prior to this one and sure love the ease of use. I have made summer sausage, chorizo, breakfast sausage and bratwurst all with ease. I wish it came with a stronger gear but for the price what a bargain compared to others ive seen.

Quick & Clean Fun
This stuffer is super simple to use and dismantles quickly for easy cleanup in the indoor kitchen. Mounting to a bench or using a C-clamp makes a one-man operation go smoothly, yet two people turn it into a race of who can crank as fast as the other can twist casings. It's fun! We like the smaller hopper in order to run batches of Italian, breakfast, summer, jerky sticks during the same butchering, whether beef, elk, deer, or antelope. If you cook for large groups - stuffing manicotti or pastries is a breeze with only one hand. The only improvement we found is adding a stop nut on the vertical spiral gear, so our strong boys don't crack the plastic gears when squeezing out the last little bit at the bottom. If you do bust a gear, NT is FAST and understanding about sending replacements.

This stuffer is a very good product and I am glad I purchased it. Stuffing with my grinder was a chore, but now with this stuffer the process goes very well. Only thing I could recommend would be a slightly larger base flange to ease clamping it to my work table. I would highly recommend this stuffer over the more expensive models.
