• If you are a regular sausage maker, this is a must-have machine. This vertical stuffer was designed with one goal in mind: stuffing sausages. Many meat grinders come with attached stuffers, but these are usually afterthoughts in the design process, and the effects of this show. The sausages develop air bubbles as they are stuffed, or burst outright. Additionally, it can take multiple people to stuff the sausages as one holds the grinder down and the other runs the machine.

    The LEM Stainless Steel Vertical Sausage Stuffer solves both of the above problems. It has an air valve which causes any air introduced into the sausages to be automatically squeezed out of the stuffer tube creating perfectly stuffed sausages. Second, it also has two C-clamps that come with the machine, solving the problem of needing an extra person. If you have nice counter tops that you’re worried about wrecking, fear not – placing a damp towel on the counter will not only give the sausage stuffer extra stability but it will also prevent the clamps from marking the counter top.

    As an additional bonus, the LEM Stainless Steel Vertical Sausage Stuffer is made primarily out of metal which makes it simple to disassemble for cleaning and reassemble for use. The plastic piston which comes in contact with the food is also nice and easy to clean. The sausage stuffer is also sturdy in its construction and could last a lifetime if treated well. The machine is 17 by 10 by 9 inches in size, weighs approximately 10 pounds and can hold 5 pounds of ground meat. It also comes with three sizes of stuffing tubes: 1/2″, 3/4″, and 1”.

    While neither the cheapest nor most expensive sausage stuffer on the market, the LEM Stainless Steel Vertical Sausage Stuffer is a great machine. For its price, it gives you all the conveniences of a commercial sausage stuffer to use at home without the associated price tag.
