I purchased a KitchenAid food grinder attachment a couple months ago for my stand mixer. I was having a hard time finding ground sirloin, so I decided I would occasionally grind my own. With the recent outbreak of e.coli and at least one death in New Hampshire, I've decided I'm not buying any more commercially ground beef.
Back to the subject...I love the grinder. It attaches to the mixer and works like a charm. It is necessary to put the bowl onto something to raise it up, but that is not a big deal. A pair of food-service gloves, a package of on-sale sirloin and I'm in business!
Oh ya, and BTW, after washing the parts, I dip them in a sink full of water and a small amount of bleach, then I wash again (since bleach is corrosive) ... just in case.
