My husband wanted to make sausages at home. This meat grinder is great as we can put it away easily in our kitchen because of the size. I recomended this machine to my friends.
As good as my old one that lasted 18 years hope this one last as long very pleased.
Been in use over 4 years still looks like new and works the same. Thank waring for a great product.
I have had my mg100 for about 10 yrs, and have used it every year for grinding venison. Lately i tried to use it to make sausage, but it would not feed the pre-ground, seasoned meat mixture through the casing stuffer. Does anyone have advice or tips on using this machine to stuff pre-ground meat into sausage casings?.

I have not found any problems which others have noted. One inch chunks of meat and larger have worked well. I have made sausage using beef, pork, chicken and turkey. What i have found is that when using the ginder for stuffing casings i need to remove the cutting plate, particularly with poultry, as the fat and skin tend to plug the holes in the plate. Once i did this the stuffing session went very quickly. All meat should be chilled thoroughly before grinding to help prevent the fats from plugging the plate holes. It would be nice if the instructions with the machine were more explicit. That is the only issue making it a four rather than a five star purchase for me. If this machine were stolen, i would buy another immediately.
I got this grinder to turn some deer into ground deer, and it work very nicely. I cut the meat into one inch squares and even added some fresh lumps of pork lard to the mix with no problems whatsoever. I saw the grinder at bed, bath, and beyond for $99, so if you get for less you are getting a great deal. The only reason for four stars is that is is still not the best grinder out there, but for under a $100 it will serve you for quite some time.
This grinder is about as good as you are going to get from a home unit.
We found this grinder to be exactly what we had hoped it would be. We have only ground a roasted leg of lamb and it worked beautifully.
I noticed some negative customer reviews for this item; its due to lack of food experience. This machine works very well, however, you do have to compensate for the fact that it’s a home machine and it has a small feeding tube. You cannot put your average sized 1 inch/1 inch cube into the feeding tube. Yes, it will fit, but no it wont do a good job. Think about it, the big industrial machines take cubes that size. You also cannot run the machine without a steady flow of meat or have it running on empty. One of the reviews said that the machine burned out on the first try. Probably an overexageration but these machines will burn out if you run it on empty of do not keep a steady flow going through the feeding tube. I have been using a hand grinder for several months and although it made my arms look good, the job was really really tough and a lot of waste. This machine was a blessing; just be reasonable, and calm about using it, and the job will come out perfectly. Happy grinding and cheers to any and all who are out there honing and preseving the craft.
This is a great grinder, i see a lot of negatives posted about it, and i must tell you that i hated it at first. It wouldn’t grind without shoving the meat through. The issue is not with the grinder, but with the instructions. Mine came with the blade and a plate in it from the factory, i read the instructions, changed plates and went to grind. Pork with fat on it wouldn’t grind at all. The blade as assembled from the factory, and according to the instructions, was placed in the grinder correctly, but the blade was actually backward. Make sure you put the blade with the flat (ugly) side toward the plate. I then ground 15lbs of pork, with fat on, in about 5 minutes. My issue with the grinder is that i cannot find plates. I want a stuffing plate (no holes, just an open plate). Due to the design (tits on the plates, rather than on the grinder) i cannot seem to locate plates other than what came with it as replacements. In all, an ok product for the money.
I saw the iffy reviews but decided to try one anyway after spotting it at lowes. I wanted something to grind the ribeyes and chuck roasts i get at costco and this thing kicks you know what. You slice the meat in 1″ to 11/2″ thick strips up to 1 foot of so long and its grinds with no problems,i use the medium grate as the small makes burgers too dense and heavy like a meat loaf. As for the lack of stainless blade, just a quick spray of olive oil or canola before storage and the blade is stainless enough. Very pleased with machine and i see no cheap plastic parts people have talked about in earlier reviews.
I reviewed this product three years ago, and thought it was good for the money. My friend bought an lem 3/4 hp grinder and it is an incredible improvement, but last night with 44 lbs of elk left to grind i lost the lem’s blade. So i broke this guy out again. The meat had been cut into huge strips for the lem, but this little guy took it all. It took 3 1/2 hours to grind the meat and fat twice and turn it into burger. So it may not be an lem, but it proved itself once again.
This meat grinder was great. It was for a friend she loves it uses it at least (1) once a week.
Have had this grinder for 10+ years and each time that i use it i marvel at what an exceptional tool it is. I use it for grinding meat, making sausages & making pates/mousses. It is very easy to set up/take down, clean & can run for hours without complaining. It takes very little room to store.
As several other reviewers have said, this grinder is a very good deal for its price point. I’ve used it to grind chicken, pork and beef and all have come out fantastic. As some have complained about jamming it really isn’t a case of the grinders fault but rather of the meat. When grinding any kind of meat you must have it as cold as possible. It essentially should be almost frozen. If the meat begins to warm up, it will start to clog no matter what you do. This is pretty much the case with everything save for the huge industrial grinders so care must be taken before you grind meat in the first place. Anyhow, as i mentioned before, grinding was smooth if a bit slow. I had no feeding or jamming problems whatsoever. My only issue with this device is using it to stuff sausages.
Major improvement over the stand mixer attachment i had been using for years. . The plastic gear that attaches to the feed screw cracked in half. I’m willing to admit this may be user error. I haven’t reached out to cuisinart yet, but locating a replacement online has been impossible so far. I will update after my attempt to remedy the issue. 18: on my initial attempt to remedy this issue, cuisinart was very responsive.
The one i bought was the same model number but had a 300 watt motor on it. I ground 100lbs of beef the night i brought it home. While it was not as fast as my larger one, it did do the job and went through everything i gave it without binding. I did not expect it to be fast, nor did i expect it to be as strong as it was. This grinder will do a good job and i highly recommend it for home use. It would be perfect for a hunter that only has a few deer to grind each year.
Works great, you just can’t stuff too much meat in at once.
This grinder performs very well for the prices it’s been selling for. When i saw this one, it was clear i had been looking at other units that were to high in price for a home unit and for my needs. I’m getting the same grind quality seen from a professional unit at the market. Granted it is not fast, but it’s fine for me. You almost never see a grinder at any price with 3 coarsness disks. Unfortunately the disks are not stainless steel, but units costing $499. 00 often don’t have stainless either. Also, this grinder has a reverse feature which you rarely see at any price. Other posters put down this unit, but if you use it as intended, it will make you happy.
This is perfect for people like me who deer hunt and do their own butchering. Excellant well made product, easy to clean, easy to use. Put mine to good use for 2 years now. Caution, venision is very lean and should be mixed with some pork fat or bacon,sorry, that is not included,lol. And do not let your friends know you have one or you will be grinding for day’s. Compare the amazon price to lowes harware who also sells this smae one. For home use its perfect, even has sausage making attachments. Picture on the box shows hamburgers and things cooked. We even joked the ground meat comes out cooked and ready to eat according to the picture.
I read a lot of reviews of this grinder beforehand, so when i brought it home, i expected to have to be very careful with how big i cut the meat and on how much cartledge and ‘silver stuff’ i left on my venison. Well in the process of skinning the deer, i stabbed my hand and was having a hard time gripping the meat and cleaning it up really well. But i gave it a shot anyway. It just ground everything i threw at it. I made 17 pounds of ground venison, and i never had to stop and clean the grinder once. I cut the meat up into cubes just small enough to fit down the feeding chute, and i left a lot of the tough silver stuff on there. I did apply some downward pressure on the plunger, but i suspect if i had been more patient, that it would have done the job without that. This is my first electric grinder, and i’m used to doing this with an old hand grinder, which will wear you out and make you shell out that money for the local deer processor to do it for you. 00 for this grinder at my local hardware store after taxes and everything, and the processor wanted $75 just to ground; more than that for sausage and steaks and stuff. After my second deer this will have more than paid for itself, and i couldn’t be more pleased with the performance.
I purchased this grinder ‘newly’ refurbished for a great deal. I ground the meat not suitable for steaks from two deer in about an hour. It was enough to fill eight gallon size freezer bags before i split it up for the freezer. I never had a problem with anything i saw in the bad reviews. It is a home model and some extra prep is needed in cutting the meat into cubes or strips, and it is basically meant for meat. The grind is pretty fine, even with the course blade and it must be hand washed and dried to prevent rusting. The parts arent crude, they are cast. Everything fit together fine and stayed in place perfectly. The machine will start to bang a bit if you load huge chunks of meat into it but it never clogged or got too run down to grind for me. If you want a precision engineered machine for frequent use, with the capabilities to grind very course or very fine, you should spend an extra hundred bucks or so on a professional model.
