Information on Different Casing Types

Casing Information for the KitchenAid Sausage Stuffer

Natural or Synthetic casings can be used with the sausage stuffer attachment. Casings can be purchased at butcher shops or by special order at grocery stores or Internet websites.

  • Casings should measure 21 - 23 mm in diameter for a small stuffer tube.
  • Casings should measure 28 - 30 mm in diameter for the large stuffer tube.
  • A large stuffing tube can be used with or without casings.

Natural Casings

Soak in cold water for 30 minutes to remove excess salt. Rinse several times by running cold water through the entire length of the casing by wrapping an open end of the casing around a faucet and turning on the water – like a water balloon.

Synthetic Casings

Soak casings in water for 5 minutes to make them more pliable and easier to work with.

Using No Casings

Sausage prepared without casings requires a high-fat content so the meat will hold its shape during cooking. Using the large tube without casings results in a sausage link the size of breakfast sausage.
