If you want to cut your food bill, add a food grinder to your stand mixer. With this accessory, you can break down large cuts of meat, like a whole turkey breast, and make freshly ground beef, chicken, pork -- even game meat -- for fraction of the grocery store price. Then use the leftover meat bones to make a savory stock that's great for soups.

Meat isn't all it grinds: You can put bread, nuts and cheese through it, choosing whether you want a coarse or fine texture.

Adding to the must-have factor of the food grinder is the fact that several other attachments work with this one, including a sausage stuffer and food strainer.
