Now i can make my own burger and know what is in it. It works great but it is slow. I am happy with this purchase.
Head is louse and wobbles when grinding. It grinds good, easy to clean and assemble.

Very well made and price can not be beaten. Very powerful grinding capacity and very easy to clean and store period.
It gets the job done quick & clean and gave me no problems. Easy to clean and the motor didn’t bog down when i was stuffing it with pork. I made the best sausage i have ever tasted with this machine.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Good Light Duty grinder.
- cauld of don better
- The little grinder that could
Got this yesterday, already used it for beef, but with pork, make sure you clean out the tendons that wind about the knife blade , on the second ground, happens even at the butchers with pork. What ever you do, do not put in any part in the dishwasher. Just wash in warm soapy water and dry, found out the hard way with the dishwasher, it will oxides and take forever to clean. Other than that very happy with this item, does what it says.
Love i make sausage links for our savanna monitor ‘puppy’ easy to use.
Bought this for my 70 year old mother who was using her mother’s manual meat grinder. The first time she used it, she called giddy as a girl. She said what used to take her 2 hours, only took her 10min to grind 3 lbs of ham. Said it was easy to use and clean.
I have used it for over 5 months now and and still running very smooth.
Saw this grinder and read some of the review and they was mostly good so i bought it. It came on time and in good condition and it does a good job grinding my meat ,but it will only get three stars because it only came with one stuffer tube , i wish i had done a little more research on grinders because i could of buy another grinder at about the same price that would have all the tubes , also since this is my first grinder i don’t now what is the size of the tubes so i can order the ones i want they will only get three stars because i think they could of included at least another tube for a smaller links.
I bought this grinder for processing our deer meat. Last year i bought the grinder attachment for my kitchenaid mixer and it just did not do the job. So, this year i decided to find a more ‘heavy duty’ grinder and i looked at a lot of different ones from the cheapest to the most expensive. This one stood out because of the price and the reviews.I used to dread processing deer meat because of the awful grinder i had to use last year, but this year it was a breeze. Easy set up, grinds very quickly, and easy clean up too. Never had any problems with the meat getting jammed up in it and then having to stop, clean it out and then start again. I am so happy i bought this grinder, definitely worth every penny.
This is a great grinder, gets the job done. Made 30 lbs of ground venison last weekend and it did not miss a beat.
It is easy to operate and does everylthing a grinder is suppose to do. Good price and good equipment.
Overall is a decent product for the money. When using this particular grinder, you do have to make sure that the meat is partially frozen to keep the fat emulsifying in the auger when grinding. Once the meat is about 50% frozen, it grinds relatively quickly for a small, consumer grade grinder. The only other issue that i had was the noise. I haven’t tried stuffing sausage yet but will be in a few days. Cleanup wasn’t bad – a bottle brush is definitely needed. Make sure you dry the parts good then lightly coat all meat pieces to stop oxidation and rust from forming. I use coconut oil as it leaves no off tastes and has natural antibiotic and antiviral properties. If you have a limited budget and grinding small infrequent batches this is a good, economical choice.
Nice little grinder/sausage stuffer, ground a 7 lb pork shoulder in about 5 minutes. Easy to assemble and disassemble, powerful, very easy cleanup. 3 dies come with it, but i used the largest of the 3. The smaller ones will grind meat into mush. A bit noisy, but not overly so. Instructions that came with it are limited, especially regarding stuffing sausage. After grinding, and before stuffing casings, remove the cutter blade and die, then insert the casing tube.
This things shrieks like a banshee, and wabbles like a drunken sailor, but it gets the job done. (to be clear, the machine itself does not move, but the grinder head wabbles on the shaft. ) i processed a deer, and an entire cow with it. Well over 100 lbs of ground meat. If the thing dies tomorrow, it owes me nothing.
I’m able to make 5 lbs of sausage in just minutes. I have discovered that colder meat works best, but all the books say that anyway.
Very good item and shipped very fast.
I have already ground 7 lbs of pork and 4 lbs of beef.
I bought this little guy with the sole purpose of making boudin, a cajun sausage. It works great for that and chewed up some pork roast without even bogging down. The only reason i didn’t give it 5 stars was because it tends to emulsify the mixture, making it more like pate’. Other than that, no complaints.
This is a very good low priced grinder. I use this for processing wild game meat, and thus far have ground about 50 pounds of meat. As long as you use common sense and good grinding practices (partially freeze the meat, dont overload the hopper, etc) this unit will work fine. As others have noted, i would not recommend placing any part of this grinder in the dishwasher. After use i wash all parts in hot soapy water, and then lightly (very lightly) oil all metal parts with vegetable oil. I store the grinder plates in a bag of rice to absorb moisture. If you take care of this unit, i would imagine it will last a long time. I certainly would consider this a ‘light duty’ kitchen grinder, but for my purposes, and this price point, its a good unit.
