    Very easy to use grinder and easy clean up
    Bought this grinder after lots of research mainly to make our own sausages. The reviews were good and this is what put this one just about the Panasonic which also rated well.The main reason was ease of use and American company owned, plus extras (including parts) were listed on the companies web site. The first hurdle we hit though was when the instructions stated you needed food grade silicone spray, new one for me never knew there was such a thing, turns out you need it to lubricate the parts and has to be food grade otherwise its poisonous to you as it would be in contact with the food. Found best deal was Weston's own brand but through a seller on eBay. Search around but make sure it is FDA approved as food grade. So had to wait for that to arrive before we could begin. Grinding meat is very easy, followed both the manual and other people's suggestion online and cut the meat into large cubes, then popped it on a tray into the freezer for a short while, 15 to 30 minutes, this actually makes it less sticky and soft for feeding down the tube into the grinding part of it. The unit comes with three discs for fine, medium and large (or course) grinding, we have found medium is fine for what we need, so far we have ground, pork, beef and lamb with no problems. Clean up is easy just remove the large ring nut to remove the grinding plate, the blade unit and auger plus the actual grinder head (that's the tubing that this all fits into and where you feed the meat down). That is all that needs cleaning in hot soapy water, nothing can be put in the dishwasher. Now the sausage making is a bit harder and I feel needs two people for making it easier, one to work the sausage casing and the other to feed the meat down the chute. Basically you remove the grinder plate disc and the blade, put the stuffing spacer & stuffing funnel onto the end of the grinder head placing the ring nut over it to hold it in place, trust me when you see it you will understand. You then (after rinsing and soaking your casings) pull the casing slowly over the funnel until you reach the end now we found it best not to tie the end of the casing because when you start feeding the meat down from the top you will get lots of air from the funnel end before it gets there, this will let you release it out the end, the meat will only go as fast as you feed it. Then just feed it into the casings as you want until you run out of meat. A quick note we let the meat when mixed with the seasonings to sit for about an hour at least so they could work into the meat plus the meat was again not as sticky as it is first ground. Now the only problem we found that wasn't covered anywhere is once you stop feeding the meat down the auger has nothing to push along so you are left with a lot of meat left in the funnel to use, we had to take the funnel off (which means the ring nut is left hanging on the sausages as well) whilst you pushed the remainder down with a plastic spoon handle. Need to find something better to do this with as we did have one accident and the casing split, so had to work that meat into another piece. Again clean up is easy and if I forgot to mention the stuffing spacer and funnel fit inside the stomper (there word not mine) for easy storage. I would call it the meat pushed myself. Its the plastic part you use to force the meat down the chute from the meat tray on top. But otherwise a good result all round, the sausage part does take time as you have to be careful. The reason we wanted to make our own sausages was two fold, firstly my wife is gluten and dairy intolerant so this was we could make something knowing what is inside it. The second is we are originally from England and wanted to make our own British bangers, ones you buy over here claiming to be them are not trust me. I have to say these were amazing and when cooked on our grill they never spat, burst or caused a flare up. I will upload two pictures (that's all they allow, sorry) one of the unit grinding some pork and the other of our very first British bangers ready for cooking. If anyone is interested this is the basic banger recipe we used and was great.... 2 lbs of regular ground pork 2 and ¾ tsps of salt ¼ tsp of ground ginger ¼ tsp of ground sage 1/8 of a tsp of ground mace (or nutmeg) ½ tsp white pepper ¼ cup bread crumbs1/3 cup of cold water Sausage casings Mix together all ingredients (except for the sausage casings). Enjoy. Okay another few notes, I used cheap country style shoulder rib meat that gets reduced in the grocery store, just trimmed it a bit, it was perfect. Also I bought casings that had good reviews and hog casings are the best if you want natural, we did and they were not tough, chewy or in fact odd tasting, just right. I hope this helps other people deciding on the grinder or even to make there own sausages.

    Be aware of one serious problem
    I have used it a couple of times and the function of it is fine. The one problem and it is annoying is that the meat tray oxidizes after being cleaned. When you try and clean it, it blackens your cloth or spunge. You will have to clean it again before the next use.

    Great for those who feed their dogs raw

    I feed my dogs Raw diet but because they gulp rather than chew. I was concerned about bones harming their digestive system. My brother a veterinarian agreed. I did a lot of research before purchasing this grinder. The 3/4hp motor easily grinds through chicken backs & wings but I haven't tried drumsticks yet. I also like the reverse feature in case a piece of meat or bone gets stuck. Haven't had this happen yet but its a good feature. It does a great job grinding bones into very tiny pieces that can be easily digested by my dogs. Whether you use this for feeding your dogs raw or for your own purposes this grinder is a real workhorse and I would highly recommend it.

    "Excellent Meat Grinder" Highly Recommend!!

    I have been using this meat grinder for approximately 3 months and the results are fantastic. There are many good points and benefits to outline about this meat grinder, its appearance is a modern design, its reliability to get the job done is excellent, meat grinds very easily with its strong durable motor and power, the motor is powerful enough to mince any type of meat as long as its cut down into smaller chucks, it definitely meets my expectations and last of all, offers excellent value for money. I mince approximately 5-15 lbs of meat per week and do it with ease. With any machine like this, it is best to wash up in hot soapy water and dry parts immediately. Highly Recommend!!

    Best Value for sure

    I ground about 100lbs of meat on this the first day i had it and it took it all like a champ. IT did get a little hot after about 30 min of use but i expected it to and i just let it rest for about 10 min and went back to it. It is ideal for home use. It is not the most powerful grinder i have seen but it cant be beat for the money. I was not impressed with the plastic exterior and it doesn't appear to be very durable, i don't think it would make it through a fall to the floor from the counter but so far so good. When i picked up the box it was so light that i had to check inside to make sure the box actually had something in it. I was skeptical but when i got it home and started it up it easily ground everything i fed it. I would buy it again and would surely recommend this to any one.

    Well worth the Money

    This is a great grinder. We used it for deer sausage and it made short work of 40 lbs of meat. We custom ground as it has three grinding disks. It wants you to use food grade silicon spray (Pam cooking spray or a generic brand (just read the labels) so don't think you have to go and buy something special for lubrication. We are really impressed with the low cost and excellent quality of this grinder. It is a workhorse.

    I love it

    My Wife bought it for me, and i Love it. I use it for making Venison Sausage, and as fast as I can put the venison in, it's ground up perfectly . It grinds so fast It is almost not fun for all the prep cutting that you do first. I love it and recommend it wholeheartedly. The price I believe is very reasonable and it's worth it.

    Great Grinder

    This grinder is what I've been looking for. I had a previous grinder that was junk and I took it back to the store. This grinder has three different stages of grinding. The meat comes out just like you bought it at the grocery store. I'm very pleased! I would recommend this grinder to a friend.

    Weston meat grinder--33-0201-W

    The grinder is exactly what I had hoped---solidly built, stainless steel on the grinding parts, and plenty of power. I tested the grinder, initially, with a bottom round piece of meat about 3 lbs which was frozen. I thawed the meat somewhat but left it fairly solid and removed small amounts of sinew or cartilage as I cut the meat into 1 inch squares. As I pushed the squares into the funnel to the grinding screw, they fed automatically without need to use the stomper to push the meat through. I used the coarse plate and the output was as I expected. I ground the 3 pounds in about 5 minutes. The clean up was simple--just the few parts in hot soapy water. That was all I have done so far. I presume chicken, beef and other meats, carefully prepared to grind , with produce the same results. Even though I only used it once, I am happy with its performance. I have not gotten any incentives or benefits to make this review.

    Weston Meat Grinder 575 watts

    excellent machine, easy to clean, used several times as i like to know what is in my meat. Made burger meat, game meat all toether about 10 pounds. That left me with those good fresh bones to make broth with and wow all front a meat grinder. ONE THING i wish they had offered to include a can of silicone spray food grade. Got some and it is great too. Use this grinder every week. 100% better than my meat grinder that goes on my mixer. cannot say enough good things about it.

    Not Bad for the money

    Decent little machine that is good for use around the house. A word of caution about this and all grinders coming out of China. The wattage and horsepower is greatly exaggerated. I saw one model advertised as 2.5 horsepower. Another at over 200 watts!

    1. The blade is stainless steel and the housing is aluminum. the gear attachment that drives the blade is plastic where it connects to the motor so you just have to be careful not to let it get too hot. IT is a light duty grinder but works great even for larger projects
    by Will86
    2. Blades are metal and strong. I grind whole fish for chum, Liquid drains through the same area the meat is discharged.
    by xmuskyguide
    3. Any liquid goes out the same end as what you put in. The blades are steel.
    by 1Zenpuppy
    4. The auger, burrs, and knife are metal, it can't last for ever but you can order replacement parts, but the one I have has already paid for itself by grinding pork butt, beef tips, making my own ground beef and Pork. It is very handy, it will also grind pears, apples, carrots, and much more.

    2. Chunky plastic, but have held up well for me so far. I looked for metal geared grinder and they all seem to be on the high end, more expensive models. For meat with little tendon in it, this grinder works great.

    3. It has a heavy duty plastic gear where the grinder attaches to the machine. I'm not sure what the inside gears are made of. Everything else is made of stainless steel including the grinder blade, hopper and the auger.

    4. Plastic. That is a draw back. But it held up for 120 lbs. of deerburger and sausage. Easy to clean up.

    6. THE GEARS ARE PLASTIC.

    7. There is a reason some of these machines have plastic "drive" gears. The design is to allow the drive gear to break to prevent damage to the more expensive main gear and/or the motor. Similiar to an outboard engine propeller. The propeller has a internal hub which is designed to break when you hit something with the prop. If the hub didn't break you could break or bend your ss prop ($400+), break the prop shaft ($200+), drive shaft ($400+) and/or the gears in the lower unit ($200+). Get the idea now? It prevents damage to the more expensive parts. Many people know this,... normally the price of parts in a machine will cost you more than what you paid for the entire unit! Someone pointed out the plastic drive gear is about $14, and I can guess the price of the main gears are probably "at least" half the price of a whole new unit.
