Works better than expected. Honestly did not have high hopes for this stuffer, but it exceeded my expectations. Ive stuffed over 200lbs of snacks sticks, breakfast sausage links and smoked sausage trough it so far, and its done everything I asked it to do. I do wish it was a little lower geared, you really have to crank it to get the snack sticks out. Other than that Im impressed.
