This high quality meat grinder is manufactured by Messerschmidt of Germany and imported by the importer of the Family Grain Mill. It includes a medium (4.5mm) cutting disk. The meat tray measures 5" x 4" and the vertical feed tube is 1.5" inside diameter. Note: Kitchen Aid states that, starting with a cool mixer, accessories may process a maximum of 10 cups of ingredients, then the mixer must be allowed to cool a full 45 minutes before further use. Kitchen Aid mixers must be operated on speed setting #10 and must be rated 325 watts or higher to use such attachments.
Tip: Be sure your meat is chilled to near freezing (but with none of it actually frozen) before grinding. This both reduces the load on the motor and improves the quality of your ground meat.

The FGM attachments for Kitchen Aid mixers are German-manufactured and are far superior to attachments made by KA. Note: This direct-fit KA attachment fits only the Kitchen Aid. It will not fit the standalone motor drive or hand drive base.

(Note: If you're in the market for a mixer that will do larger batches of heavier dough, as well as accept FGM milling attachments without such restrictive limits on batch size and running time, see the workhorse that will "do it all" in your kitchen.)
