Question about KitchenAid K45SS Classic Stand Mixer
I recently started using the Kitchenaid meat grinder. After about a hal a pound goes through, black residue is all over the meat. When I take it apart, there is tons of oil-like back gunk in the meat chamber. I was hoping it may just be a one time thing, but this is the 4th batch of meat I have made and it has just gotten worse. I see others are complaining about it (eg. on Amazon.com reviews). It is coming from inside the machine where the grinder attachment fits into the machine. Second question: Does this happen with regular meat grinders also?
The guy that said that the meat produces this is full of it since the black reside is the blade friction against the round metal piece with the holes, i had black fine powder all over my mixer without any meat

This is a common issue with the Kitchenaid food grinder. The black residue is a product of the meat itself.
With Kitchenaid Food Grinder Attachments, it is recommended that the meat be partially frozen before grinding. This is to ensure a quality grind and to make sure the meat holds all its juices while grinding.
If any juices from the meat are leaked into the food grinder, the friction will cause a chemical reaction and turn the juice from the meat into a black substance.

In most instances, it has a lot to do in the way you clean it. Don't lace it in the diswasher because it with become somewhat 'tarnished' where black-like suit can rub off, and coat the meat.
I discovered Palmolive oxy dish soap (blue bottle) just by trial and error. Put some on a sponge/ (non-metal) scouring pad, and scrub the attachment, it will take off the majority of the gunk that's rubbing off and after a few times of cleaning it, it'll get back to its aluminum luster. Easy remedy to clean any aluminum item.
