    Product received in a timely manner and of good quality. Have shopped at Sausage Maker for years and use Rytek’s book for numerous items.

  2. Jim Leland (verified owner)

    Just the right size. Good price.

    I bought this lug to mix small batches of sausage (up to 15 pounds) with the lid because I wanted the option of having a lid to make certain types of sausages. I liked that it would fit in the refrigerator. I couldn’t give it an excellent review because the lid sits on the top of the lug fine…but it doesn’t actually fasten to the lug in any way. Otherwise this product does everything I expected it to do.

    Perfect size. Will be ordering more of these soon.

  5. Steven Phillips (verified owner)

    This is a great product for the price. Just big enough for grinding mixing and storing. Fit in my refrigerator without an issue. Thinking about purchasing another.

    Good size and it fits under the drum to catch the shredded cabbage.

  7. Idahoan (verified owner)

    It will work. Doesn’t hold as much meat as I thought it might. Thirty pounds with the lid still fitting would be a full Lug.

  8. val kitzan (verified owner)

    Perfect size for mixing

  9. Allan Flatoff (verified owner)

    Good size to stick right under the grinder nozzle. Not too tall. It’s a little light-weight / flimsy so it wouldn’t stand up to much commercial use. Occasional home use is fine.

  10. Eddie Cavett (verified owner)

    I loved it

  11. David Bradford (verified owner)

    The tubs are sturdy but the lids do not latch & only gravity holds the cover on the lug

  12. peter holand (verified owner)

    like the size and the cover. only thing I do not like is that the coer doesn’t lock

  13. Joe (verified owner)

    It is airtight and will protect the contents from any type of contamination during the sausage making process.

  14. LLOYD ANTHONY CUPICCIA (verified owner)

    Not as sturdy as the larger one. It’s ok and serves a good purpose. I wish they could make the compact one as well as the larger one.

  17. M G (verified owner)

    Works great. Perfect for whole poke belly or whole salmon fillets when brining

  18. Kim Godfrey (verified owner)

    This lug is just the right size to fit in the average fridge. Makes mixing the meats easier also.

    Great size that will fit in my frige.
    I love it !

  24. Robert Goebel (verified owner)

    I like the tub and it fits in the refigerator well and should be good for mixing meat for summer sausgae and sausages in. I wish the lid snapped on instead of just laid loosely on top. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5. Otherwise I like the quality and the price, just trying to push for a lid re-design.

  25. Anonymous (verified owner)

    nice size

    Great quality, reasonably priced and quick shipping!

    I have other regular sized lugs of yours and was looking for a smaller one for smaller batches of sausage to make cleanup easier. Didn’t really need the lid but couldn’t get the smaller lug without it. I was expecting the same quality as the regular lug only in a smaller size. That wasn’t the case. It seems more flimsy and was surprised that the lid only sat on top and did not snap on.

    Just the right size and good quality.

    Easy to use!

    I thought the lid would attach tightly to the lug, but it does not. Disappointed with the lid.

    The items were great as I gave this to my daughter and husband. She was very excited to get them as she and her doctor husband are always entertaining.

  38. Michael M. (verified owner)

    I really like this tub as it handles my mixing of 15 lbs of ground meat with room for me to shift it around really well. Clean-up of the lug is great, simple compared to other plastic tubs that I’ve worked with. It is unfortunately about an inch too long to fit in my refrigerator front to back (I have a side-by-side unit) so I can’t store my ground meats in it overnight – measure your refrigerator if you plan on using it this way.

  39. Barry H (verified owner)

    I bought this as it is sized to fit on a refrigerator shelf. Lid fits a bit loose, but all in all this is a good product.

  40. Joseph Capo (verified owner)

    Nice tote. Cover stays on by gravity only. No seal

  41. Norman Worzella (verified owner)

    Perfect size for refrigerator. Fits between the shelves. The lid is loose fitting on lug, does not snap on. If you fill lug high enough the lid raises above top of container and allows air in.
