Grinding Meat in KA Stand Mixer

While we were grinding pounds and pounds of pork, I noticed metal filings coming of into the meat. I loosened the screws. any advice?

  1. I can't get mine to grind anything!

    1. I've never had a problem with mine, never saw any filings either. The only problem I have with it is the plastic housing is cracked.

      A neat trick I learned from the Bouchon cookbook with grinding meat was that as you put the last of the meat into the hopper add a piece of plastic wrap folded into a square. It pushes the last of the meat out but won't be ground. Then just takes stuff apart and throw wrap away.
