Grinder pro's / con's help please

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Since the KitchenAid is broke, I been checkin grinders. Maybe I've narrowed it down.

Northern Industrial #12

Kitchener #12

I think they are the same grinders.

Northern says all carbon steel cutter and plates. $129

Kitchener says SS cutter and plates. $99

If you have use one of these grinders, "a heads up" good or bad would be appreciated.

What is a Kubbe attachment?

I have the Griz 5# stuffer so I won't be using it as a stuffer.(best thing since sliced bread).

 

 

Thanks Dave

Dont have any experience with either grinder but here is what I found for you on the Kubbe attachment

What is a kubbe attachment used for?

I got a meat grinder and it has a kubbe attachment. What would one use that for?

Kubbe is a traditional Middle Eastern dish comprised of a cylinder-like shell made from meat, usually lamb and bulghur wheat, the centre is then stuffed with a spiced minced lamb filling and the ends are sealed to form a parcel. These are then deep-fried. To make the outer shell requires great expertise; the Kubbe attachment should shape the outer shell ready for stuffing.

I have the Northern and it is a great grinder...  Also they are both the same grinder I believe...  Northern gives the best warranty though...

I bought a Kitchen Aid grinder to make small batches of turkey sausage.

Haven't used it yet.

After seeing your's I'm having second thoughts about even trying it out.

I bought this one from Northern.

http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200451267_200451267

It's almost always on sale for $99, which is what I paid for it, and what it costs now.

 

 

Northern also has this one for $129.

Now would somebody like to tell me the difference between these two grinders????

Other than the $30????

 

 

Thanks,

Bear

The Kitchener grinder is on it's way. I've got to get stuff done. ABT's, buttermilk sausage, boil some bacon and give a review. Poker night. BBB is in the fridge. I've got pictures to post. The KitchenAid is on the kitchen table in pieces.

I think it is MILLER TIME!!!

Thank you one and all.

I have the exact same model (See his other thread, it is the 525W Professional 6). I have used it to grind and stuff Bratwurst for about 5 years. I make about 5-6 pounds at a time and have worn out one stuffing tube. I do understand what everyone says about it being a pain to grind and stuff with it, but mine has stood up tot he test of time.

Now, I do admit that I just got the Cabela's 11 lb vertical suffer for Christmas. I haven't had a chance to try it out, yet but I will soon! I just wanted to reassure some of the people who were asking that my Kitchen Aid has done OK for a while.

That's it?

Weird---You would think if that was all it was, they would just advertise the one, and offer the better warranty for another $30.

I have heard nothing but good comments about the Northern Tool grinder.  I wish I had bought that one, but my little no name one works fine for the small batches I do.

 

Good luck and good smoking!
