The 'Huon' 5Lt Sausage Filler is the result of years of testing to find the best possible device for home or semi-professional sausage making.
This is the most practical, durable and reasonably priced filler on the market. It has been constructed predominantly from stainless-steel, and features solid steel gears which do not suffer from the common breakages that can occur in many of our rival brands. This filler has an air-release valve in the plunger, which helps prevent air pockets making their way into your finished sausages or salamis. There are two gears, one for filling and one for rapid retraction of the plunger for re-loading.
Another key advantage of the 'Huon' Filler is that it comes complete with a set of four different sized, straight nozzles. Straight nozzles are a vital feature for those wanting the flexibility to use collagen sausage casings. Beware of other brands that only offer tapered, plastic nozzles which only allow natural casings to be used. When choosing a filler, you should also beware of machines that have a similar outward appearence to the Huon Filler, but have cheap nylon or cast-alloy gears internally.
Although it is possible to fill thick sausages using a funnel attached to a mincer, these hand-wound machines are a vastly superior alternative. They are much quicker to use, allow the use of collagen casings and the filling of thinner sausages, and do not unnecessarily heat the meat like a mincer does.
Choosing a sausage filler can be confusing, as there are many brands, sizes and styles available. Our 30-plus years of experience in the industry tells us that horizontal-style fillers are much more stable and easier to operate that vertical machines. In terms of capacity, 3Lt models are too small in that they require frequent re-fills. Our 5Lt and 7Lt models solve this problem whilst still remaining relatively easy to operate. A 5Lt Horizontal filler is the perfect choice if you are trying to fill sausages with a single operator, whilst the 7Lt model offers higher capacity with a 2-person operation. Combined with it's other features and advantages, the 'Huon' Sausage Filler is simply the best device for the best price.
1. The thinnest calibre of collagen casings that can be used with this filler is 26mm (Nippi 260).
2. Our sausage fillers are constructed from highly polished stainless steel. This finish tends to accentuate tiny incidental scratches and weld marks that do not affect the operation of the unit in any way. The filler is designed as a functional and practical piece of equipment, not a work of art!
