To keep your home sausage maker looking and pumping at its best, we recommend handwashing thoroughly in warm water, with a mild detergent and a brush, and leaving to air dry on a tea towel before first use and after every use.
Knock the humble sausage sizzle out of the park! Get creative with your seasonings, use up your leftover meats and veggies, and enjoy the most fun you’ll will ever have in the kitchen. But before you begin, read these instructions in full and make sure your sausage maker is thoroughly washed and dried ready for use.
Make your filling
Grab some guided Thermomix cooking inspo from Cookidoo, like Spiced Beef Sausages and Vegetarian Breakfast Sausages. Or make up a batch of your family’s favourite beef, chicken, pork, veggie or vegan sausage filling recipe. And if you’re ready to stretch your skills a little further, give some dry cured sausage, chorizo and salami recipes a go.
Load your filling
- Hold the plunger release leaver down and pull gently on the plunger release knob to pull the plunger through to the end of the barrel.
- Unscrew the nozzle cap to open the end of the barrel.
- Take a cup of sausage or jerky mix, shape it into a roll narrow enough to fit into the barrel and push into the open end of your sausage maker.
- Repeat until the barrel is full.
Attach a nozzle
- Choose one of the three attachable nozzles – the small one for breakfast sausages, the large one for big juicy bangers, or the flat one for jerky.
- Place into the nozzle cap and screw onto the end of the barrel.
- Slip your casing onto the nozzle and tie a firm knot in the end.
- Squeeze the trigger with a gentle, even pressure to pump your sausage mix onto the casings.
- Take care not to over-fill your casings, so they won’t break when you start twisting to make your links.
- Tie a knot in the other end of your casing, then twist to make your links.
- Spray or brush your tray with a light coat of oil.
- Squeeze the trigger with a gentle, even pressure to pump strips of jerky mix onto your tray.
- Place your tray/trays of jerky into your oven or dehydrator.
Cleaning and care instructions
To keep your Home Sausage Maker looking and pumping at its best, we don’t recommend putting it in the dishwasher. Before first use and after every use, handwash thoroughly in hot soapy water, using a brush to clean the inside of the barrel and leave to air dry on a tea towel.
