Chard FG1000B – Very nice grinder for the price!

We recently used this to grind meat, and couldn’t have been more pleased with the results. It is well made (metal parts), quiet, and doesn’t seem to heat up.

Works great and i have made three huge batches of chiang mai sausage (sai ua) with this unit. I did buy a couple of extra grinding disks in stainless steel to get the courser grain needed for this particular sausage and it came out great. Clean up is only by hand but is easy to accomplish.

It’s amazing , thank you amazon.

I want to buy 2 more for my mather prethent and for my sister birthday. Havy duty grinder is good😄😜.

Easy to set up, use and clean.

I have made four 5 pound batches so far, the grinder has no problems. I do have some issues using it for stuffing casings, the pusher tool is hard to hold on to. I have to take off the cover to get a good hold. The meat holds it in the feed tube so tight it pulls a vacuum when you remove it to add more sausage.

  • Great grinder for the price
  • Works great and I have made three huge batches of Chiang
  • Great value!

A great grinder, we put the blade in wrong and broke it. Their instructions regarding the blade was difficult for us to understand. All is good and happy with the grinder.

Amazon did a great job in making a timely delivery. I have used it multiple times (>60) since its purchase and have been functioning efficiently and effectively for grinding my chicken, beef, mutton and goat. It is easy to use and clean. Recommended for kitchen use.

I love the product because i used it for grinding my venison and it had no problem for the job. I researched many other #12 grinders this size and it buy far had the lowest price. I only grind meat about once or twice a month so the size will be perfect for what i use it for. The speed setting also had a reverse that came in handy a few times. It came with other grinder fittings that seem very well made and strong. It also came with a plunger and casing tubes for making sausage(haven’t tried those yet) overall a great grinder for the price.

Only issue was when i accidentally tried stuffing bratwurst with the smaller tube, which was my fault, and it took forever.

I had been researching the best electric grinder for grinding deer meat that is not too expensive because my old one could not handle the snew in deer meat because it would keep clogging up. I found this one at a local sports store on sale and gave it a try. It never clogged and it even has a reverse switch. Its not noisy and doesn’t get hot. For the money this is a must buy. Its has multiple attachments, 3 grinding sizes and its easy to clean. Will try and update the more i use it.

CHARD FG1000B #12 Heavy Duty Electric Food Grinder

The CHARD #12 Heavy Duty Electric Grinder lets you make your own variety of burgers, brats and sausages.

The 500 Watt motor, large hopper and food pusher allow you to grind or stuff generous portions of meat in a short amount of time, quickly and efficiently. The reverse auger function helps to prevent jamming and ensures continuous use. The stainless-steel cutting blade and sintered steel cutting plates can process up to 6 pounds of meat or game per minute.

All grinder accessories conveniently nest inside the food pusher. The hopper and grinder head assembly are removable for easy clean up. Includes two sausage stuffing tubes and one stuffing plate attachments.

Also features a built-in cord storage area and a thermal safety reset button that provides overload protection and extends the life of the grinder.

HELPFUL HINTS:

– Grinding stale bread pieces may help remove food residue left in the appliance after use.

– Cut food into strips or cubes slightly smaller than the opening on the large DIE-CAST HOPPER.

– Make sure food is free of bone, tough tendons, nutshells, etc. before grinding.

– Raw meat and fish should be thoroughly chilled (not frozen) before grinding to reduce the loss of juices.

– Freshly ground meat should be refrigerated and cooked within 24 hours.

– Trim a handful of fat from meat. Process the fat through the hopper to lubricate grinding mechanism for better processing results.

– For best drying results, prepare sausage a day or two prior to use.

It would slow down a little but “ate” anything fed to it. The only thing that stopped me was having to empty the bowl of ground meat. Spending $ on the grinder rather than a butcher, this has paid for itself already in the first year.

I bought this as an upgrade to my old 300 watt warner grinder. It cut my grind time to a third of what it took. It will grind the lower calf muscle on a white tail deer whole. If it will fit down the tube it will grind it up. I did this with refrigerator temp venison, if you chilled your meat it will grind even faster. I have put 2 deer through it so far, as i normally process 6 deer a year i will update at the end of the season.

I’m loving this electric grinder. As it had on the outside of the packaging, it has thoughtful design. Initially it made me laugh, but when i started looking at it, i realized they were right. The part you push the meat down with holds the other parts, the buttons are easy to use, and i like the way the grinder is secured into the motor with the flip of the switch. I’ve been struggling with an old oster grinder that i’ve had for years. I couldn’t get through a 1/2 pound without having to pull it apart and clean the stuff off of the blade (and we’re very picky about cleaning up our meat before grinding). This grinder has a large shoot to put the meat through and grinds through our elk, pork, and suet like a champ. I did many pounds of meat quickly and effortlessly. Shoots it right out and there are three sizes of holes. Haven’t tried the sausage tubes yet, but i’m sure they will do great. The device also takes a size 12 blade and those are available locally from cabela’s, so i’m happy about that as well. After struggling with my other grinder for years (partly because the blades are dull and there is no way to really sharpen them due to the way they are designed), i’m really excited to use this machine. Made loose elk sausage this afternoon and it worked better than i could have imagined. If anything changes, i’ll repost.

I am really enjoying this grinder. It has everything the more expensive models have. Be sure and follow manufacturers grinding procedures. You need to be sure and remove silver skin etc. Assembles/disassembles super easy. You should buy a can of food grade silicone spray for your grinding plates, wash them and immediately dry and spray w/ the silicone. Have made breakfast sausage, italian sausage and, grinding my own beef and turkey. This way i know there are no fillers or.

So far we have used it only for rabbit meat but it makes super ground meat.

Broke gears after several uses, but got replacement parts under warranty with out a hassle.

Powerful 500 Watt Motor with Stuff, Grind and Reverse functions

Ground a whole deer the first time i used it in less than 30 minuteseasy to set up, easy to cleanlove it.

Thus was literally half the price of the same one at fleet farm. Works great and makes quick work of grinding and stuffing sausage casings.

My wife is pleased using it.

Excellent grinder and much cheaper through amazon than at dunhams sporting goods.

Not so good stuffing sausages. It clogs up before it reaches the stuffing tube.
