I do think a vertical stuffer is in the cards, but I have to make sure this is something I will definitely stick with, as storage space is at a premium. I'm not big on "single taskers" but as I venture forth, I think my small appliances will have to get culled, so I can make space for a stuffer.
Note to self: Clean out pantry to make space for sausage stuffer, during your time off work in two weeks.
I know the smaller vertical stuffers hold about 5 lbs at a time. Do you have any recommendations for something a bit smaller/more manageable for a beginner? I believe I read something about the horizontal ones... with a lever? *scratches head and tries to remember*
I do very much appreciate all the kind words of encouragement! I think I can... I think I can...
Bloo would not recomend a stuffer smaller than 5lbs. If space is the problem, consider selling the stock pot. Once you get the stuffer, it will be your new adiction
