I generally stuff approximately 40 to 50 lb of sausage per season. I use LEM products to streamline my sausage making process. The only time I have said that I wish I had bought something different is my upright stuffer. I bought the 5 lb stuffer. I wish I had bought the 15 lb stuffer. It's a small thing but stopping to reload the stuffer takes more time. Once I have everything the way I like it I just want to roll with it. - David
Sausage Stuffers vary widely. Don't jump on the first one you see. Take the time to determine which type of Stuffer is best for you and how you'll use it. Here are the 3 types of Sausage Stuffers you'll find at LEM:
|5 lb. Manual Stuffer # 824|
Manual Stuffers - sometimes called Horn Stuffers - are low cost, low maintenance but require additional effort and time to stuff each casing. This is a great Stuffer for the person who makes a small quantity of sausage.
|5 lb. Vertical Stuffer # 606|
|10 lb. Ultimate Stuffer # 1111|
So which stuffer is for you? Well - ask yourself these 4 questions:
- How much sausage am I going to make at a time? How often?
- How hard do I want to work to stuff casings?
- How quickly do I want to stuff casings?
- What sort of clean-up and maintenance should I expect?
