1st Time Stuffer
Being a simple person I made deer sticks with my 22 grinder. My wife helped with this chore and it did not bring us any closer. I purchased the 5-lb stuffer and I wondered why I waited so long to get one. Follow the instructions and it works great. I would recommend it to anyone who is trying to use the grinder to stuff with. Now I can do it by myself, and my wife and I get along a little better.
Easy, fast and efficient
This little puppy really cranks out the sausages! Unlike out old plastic tubes, the metal tube works well with the pre-tubed casing, once you add a little oil to the outside of the tube. Our only question is the directions call for you to grease parts of it with a food safe grease/lubricant but did not come with any. As these areas are in direct contact with food we are using grape seed oil.
Santa brought me the 5# SS stuffer, UPS played football with the box during delivery but LEM sorted that out for me. My local store put pork on special this week so it was time to give her a try and all I can say is WOW, We have been using the Kitchenaid for years and have stood for hours trying to get the mix into the casings. We have done in an afternoon what would have taken us two days in the past years, I thought maybe I had got too small a stuffer but for us Is is just perfect and the product it turns out is superb, the fill is perfect, we could not be happier with the machine, Grinder and mixer next. Thank You LEM.
Very well built, easy to use
Better then I thought
Just used sausage stuffer yesterday for the first time, did 9 lbs. of sweet Italian and 9 lbs. of potato sausage and this machine worked better then I expected. I have used the stuffer on my Cabela's 3/4 horse grinder and it was a pain in the a**. It is a great grinder but trying to use the stuffer attachments even with help is not easy. Lem's stuffer is easy to assemble and use and it cleans up easily. When I first received the Lem's stuffer I through it was to small but the 5lbs. capacity worked out well as I use doing the stuffing by my self. The only negitive comment I have is the base is small and the clamps are to small to use easily? There are four holes in the base for mounting but I do not set up my processing for permanent use so I will have to make up a stand to use. Overall I am pleased with my purchase.

this is a really terrific machine - once you get the hang of how to manage the speed on meat filling! lol......at first we were yelling at each other to WAIT! WAIT! WAIT! cuz sausage was just POURING out! but, with a few minutes practice, we figured it out. gonna be using this forever.
Works better than stuffing with a grinder
Well built, cleans easily, works better than a grinder to stuff sausages.
I got the 5 lb. sausage stuffer and its not very well made. While stuffing as you get below half way the " pillers " the crank and plunger are on bends very easily. The cause is the thickness of the base plate is very thin and and bend with the slightest torque. I was going to send it back but I believe the cabelas grinder is just like the lem. I added extra water to thin it , but no change. The only cure was to cut some steel plate to use as washers. The bottom is not flat so a bigger standered washer don't work.
We started out with the jerky cannon which we really liked but had to move up to something where we could make larger quantities of snack sticks. This is a great product. Made well and we can do so much more with less time. The first time we used it, we stuffed 5 pounds of meat into 17mm casing in 50 minutes.
5 lb Stuffer
Well built, easy to clean, works great!
Worked very well
Am new to making sausage, but this suffer worked great. Only wish I had gotten bigger unit, as you can go through 1 canaster very quickly.
