I bought one of these recently at Costco when they were on sale for 245.00. They now have a special for a free food grinder or slicer/shredder if you mail in the receipt/upc/online form. The purchase date must be from April 1-May 31. This is a pretty good deal (I think) for a 475 watt KA with attachment. See the form for the small print/details.
