    There is a forum here which might have info.

    I know many of the manual hand cranked ones break, I was looking to get one but all seemed bad.

    Have a kenwood but the attachment is expensive and doesn’t offer the ability of some of the purpose built mincers.

    The Andrew James ones get good reviews but it’s not a brand I’m familiar with.

    I have a hand mixer and ice cream maker from this brand. Suitable for home use and great value.

    FWIW I have been making sausages for a fair while now, I have the Kenwood mincer attachment.
    Its much better than cheap mincers and does a great job of mincing with plenty of control and power.
    For stuffing them I have a 5kg dual gear horizontal stuffer, this is easier to control in my experience then a stuffing tube on the mincer.
    I add the spice to the meat, mix thoroughly and then mince. Once minced I mix it again and fill the stuffer.
    I prefer the natural casings to the collagen type. I find them more forgiving.
