How To Choose The Best Sausage Stuffer for Your Kitchen
A sausage stuffer is a relatively simple machine, especially if you are looking for a standalone option over a KitchenAid Stand Mixer Attachment. Here’s a few things to consider.
Decide what kind of sausage you want to make
There are two types of sausage, fresh and cured. Fresh sausage is made with uncooked meat, while cured sausage is made with cooked meat.
Choose your stuffing tube size
This will vary depending on the type of sausages you are making. For breakfast sausage, a 3/8 inch diameter tube is recommended, while for Italian sausage (like mortadella), choose a 1 inch tube. Keep in mind that you can always make your sausages using multiple stuffing tubes to accommodate different types of sausage.
Choose your power source
Your choices are either manual or electric, with the former being good for catering to specific needs while the latter is great if you plan to use your stuffer for other tasks as well.
Consider your budget
Sausage stuffers range in price from around $30 to $200. Choose the one that fits your needs and your budget.
Spring-driven or piston stuffers are usually hand powered, but they tend to be the best choices for beginner sausage makers who don’t want to break the bank. They’re also not too powerful and can be used by anyone in any kitchen without having to worry about electrical power needs.
Consider the size and design of your kitchen top
Remember that electric sausage stuffers usually come with their own motor, which may require some additional space on your kitchen top. On the other hand, if you plan to use your electric stuffer only occasionally or if you don’t have enough counter space for an electrical unit, go for a smaller, manual option instead.
Choose a model that is easy to clean and maintain
How easy is it to clean? Can parts be washed in a dishwasher or are they too complicated for that? How much effort is required to disassemble them so you can thoroughly wash them after use? Keep these things in mind as you shop around.
Consider brand history and reputation over a long period of time in addition to any online reviews
There are a lot of sausage stuffers on the market, so it’s important to do your research and make sure you’re getting a good quality product. Look for brands with a long history of satisfied customers and products that are known for their durability and easy cleaning. You can also read online reviews to get an idea of what others have thought about a particular sausage stuffer before you make your purchase.
Reasons To Make Your Own Sausage
If you’re reading this, you have probably decided that making your sausage is a good idea. However, keep in mind all the benefits when you are deciding which type to go for. Making your own sausage is an incredible idea because of –
You get to choose the ingredients that go into your delicious sausage, so you know that it will be delicious every time.
Making your own sausage is the best way to ensure that you are using high-quality meat in your sausage mixture. When you spend time preparing your own sausage, it’s obvious when there’s something missing or if the meat has too much fat in it (which can be removed).
Sausage comes in countless different flavors and it is very easy to create your own recipes at home. You can use any combination of spices and meats that you like to create unique flavors.
Commercial sausages and other processed meats can be very high in preservatives and additives, but making your own ensures that you know exactly what goes into the sausage. Many of these ingredients may also contribute to health problems such as heart disease and cancer, so it’s best to take control of what you put in your body.
When you make your own fresh sausages, you have complete control over the ingredients, the flavor, and the texture. This means that you can cater to any dietary needs or restrictions that you may have. You can even create amazing smoked sausage.
It’s no secret that homemade food is almost always cheaper than store-bought food. Sausage is no exception – in fact, you can save a considerable amount of money by making your own.
FAQs about Sausage Stuffers
Here are some frequently asked questions about Sausage Stuffers
What size sausage stuffer should I buy?
There is no one size fits all answer to this question, as it varies depending on what you are stuffing. Fortunately there are some rules of thumb that can help give you an idea of what size you will need for your kitchen. If you plan on stuffing sausages less than 3/4″ in diameter (including breakfast patties) then a model with a 1-3/8″ diameter plunger should work well. Look for a machine with removable stuffer tube for more options.
Should you use a manual sausage stuffer?
Many people use a manual sausage stuffer for their home kitchen. It is very easy to assemble, clean and store; it’s affordable and will work well for stuffing smaller sausages such as breakfast patties. They also make it easier to portion the meat uniformly which guarantees that you can use up all of your raw materials before they go bad. All these reasons make manual sausage stuffers very appealing for people who like to do things themselves without too much fuss and bother! An electric sausage stuffer is going to be used primarily in a commercial setting with a large batch and continuous production.
How much sausage are you going to make at a time?
One of the most important decisions when choosing a sausage stuffer is how much do you need each time. Manual models may only be able to handle small batches while electrical stuffers can handle continuous production. The most popular home models work with 5 lbs at a time, but you can always use less, or get a slightly larger model.
Why choose a vertical or a horizontal sausage stuffer?
The main difference is that a vertical sausage stuffer machine features the plunger, which injects meat into natural or artificial casings via gravity. A horizontal sausage stuffer features gears that handle the stuffing process. A horizontal stuffer is usually smaller than a vertical stuffer, but also more likely to break and requires more muscle force to turn the metal gear.
