Sausage stuffers are machines that are used for the production of sausages in both commercial food production and food service industry applications. Sausage stuffers are available in various sizes, shapes, with various features and can be used to make different types, shapes and sizes of sausages. Sausage stuffers allow the user to fill meat in sausage casings easily. This tool is popularly used to control the taste, size, texture and form of the sausages. Maintenance of the standard of product and elimination of human mistakes in the filling process while achieving optimal speed and accuracy of operation for large batch sizes is crucial to the restaurant and food production industry. Sausage stuffers operate on a simple process to produce consistent quality and large volume of sausages. A chunk of ground meat is filled into the upper open end of the sausage stuffer cylinder. A piston then pushes the ground meat toward the bottom of the cylinder and the meat is then extracted through an outlet called the nose into the sausage casings. Commercial sausage stuffers are generally made of food grade stainless steel and are very easy to clean. Commercial sausage stuffers can produce fine quality mince and this is important to the process of pushing them through the sausage casings and maintaining consistency in form and size of the sausages. The commercial sausage stuffer is easy to clean and can be much efficiently kept free of germs.
