We have been buying a lot of bulk meats to make out budget stretch further. With buying meats in bulk we wanted a really good meat grinder for the beef, pork and chicken we buy to make it last longer, and be able to get different types of meals out of one piece of meat. This grinder caught our eye initially because of price, and secondly because of all the attachements that come with it. When I looked at this closer I could see that this is made with high quality materials and will hold up to a lot of use. This meat grinder has 3 speeds and comes with 3 Cutting Blades, 3 Grinding Plates, a Kubbe Attachment and Sausage Stuffing Tubes. The only thing we have to purchase is the actual sausage casings. This meat grinder comes with really clear instructions that make it very easy to put together and operate. The machine runs with push buttons on the side that are clearly marked. My husband and I are very impressed with the quality of the grinder and it's attachments for the price point this is at. This grinder and it's attachments do need to be hand washed, but the pieces wash up easily and quickly. This is a compact machine so it's easy to store. We are very impressed and very happy with this electric meat grinder!

SMOOTH, QUIET AND POWERFUL
Since it looks like I am the first customer to leave a review for this product, I thought I would take a little more time with my review and tell you my Pros and Cons on this meat grinder and why I purchased it in the first place. I had been shopping for about 3 months for an electric meat grinder that came with everything all in one "Kit" so I didn't have to buy more additional pieces later for a certain type of meat grinding or sausage stuffing activity. I was also looking for a grinder that had a larger diameter of meat stuffing tunnel (the place where you stuff the meat into) and a larger diameter "hole" of where the meat comes out, but most all of them we looked at were (as we found out) what is considered a smaller size #8 kitchen grinder and not the larger size #12 grinder like this STX Turboforce grinder is. When I saw this advertised on Wal-Mart and read that it was a Size #12 Grinder with ALL of the accessories I wanted, I bought it immediately. I have now been using it for only about 2 weeks and am very happy with it. If it keeps working like it is at this time, I will be quite happy for a very long time as it is exactly what I was looking for. OK...Here's my Pros: 1) The price - Can't Be Beat for all you get with this package. 2) This is a very nice looking grinder and the chrome accents make it look very nice on my kitchen counter. I normally keep it on my counter as I grind meat so often. 3) It's a Size #12 Grinder and not a size #8 - this was very important to me. 4) It came with 3 different sizes of Grinding Plates: a 4mm (right at 1/8"), a 7 mm (right at 1/8") and also what they call a wagon wheel plate for those large sausage grinds. I also use the wagon wheel plate as a spacer for stuffing sausage as this makes sausage stuffing a lot faster and easier. 5) I wanted to make sure I got a grinder with "Stainless Steel" Cutting Blades and this one came with 3 of them. 6) The 3 sausage stuffing tubes and kubbe attachment were exactly the additional parts that I was looking for in a grinder. 7) Very Easy to clean. Just read the instructions carefully on this because you do not want to put any parts of it in the dishwasher. 8) As I said in my title, "Smooth, Quiet and Powerful" and you will find this is very true if you purchase one. 9) Instructions - Well written with many photos on how to assemble the parts for different purposes. Also includes hints on grinding correctly, sausage stuffing and how to clean all of the parts. I also want to mention that my husband and I had a "grinding day" last weekend after we had purchased close to 70 lbs. of chuck roasts. After stripping the meat into 4 to 8 inch long strips and chilling them in the freezer for 15 minutes, it took us less than 30 minutes to grinder ALL of this meat into some great tasting hamburger. I might let you in on a little secret we have for much better tasting hamburger: Add 1 slice of bacon to the mix for every pound that you grind and you will not believe the added taste that this gives to the hamburger when you fix it on your outdoor grill. And last of all...Get This - This product comes with a "3 Year - 100% Guarantee". How many companies trust in their product so much as to give it this long of a guarantee so DON'T buy extended warranty on this product if some outside company offers it to you. I read a lot about these STX people and 99% of all that I have read is nothing but excellent on the quality of their products and service!!! My Cons: None as of yet, but after I use it for another couple of months, I will revise my review if I have any problems with the product, but from what I have read about this grinder from other reviews on other sites, I won't be having any problems with this unit in the future.
Money well spent!
I've been trying to eat healthier and bring my family on board. It can be expensive, so in an effort to save money while still eating healthy food, we started looking for a meat grinder so we could start to stock our freezer with sales meats that normally cost more if bought already prepped. I did my research for a stainless steel grinder with stainless steel parts. I was investing my hard earned money and didn't want to have to buy all kinds of extra attachments and parts, we also wanted to try making our own sausage so having the attachments to make them included with the grinder was also important. I set out to the store and bought sirloin and boneless ribs to grind up for hamburger and meatballs. I grabbed chicken for stir-fry, tacos, and turkey for burgers. I also grabbed salmon to grind up for burgers and other recipes I had on deck. Then I started grinding. What I love is that the grinder is super simple to put together, it comes with cutting blades, grinding plates, sausage stuffing tubes, a kubbe attachment and it has 3 speeds. I made meatballs with it last night and added in seasonings before bagging and freezing them. There really is a better taste to the meat when you grind it up yourself vs the store. It didn't take long at all for the grinder to work the meat through and we didn't have any issues with using it or cleaning it after. I plan on using this grinder for a long time, money very well spent!
A good consideration for an in home meat grinder
Walmart.com has an extensive number of meat grinders to choose from. After a lot of consideration and comparing of products I chose this one. It looked like it has the best features. The size of the unit in the description just did not sink in. The size was somewhat of a surprise when the meat grinder arrived. The first thing was the size of the unit. It is indeed a large unit. Three or four times the size of my old unit. This is indeed a heavy duty unit for home usage not to be confused with a commercial unit found in a butcher shop. When using this unit, cool down the meat to just above freezing as that will grind better. This unit just gobbles up whatever meat it is fed. Want to try something different? Use 75% flap meat and 25% pork. This makes a very nice tasting hamburger or meat loaf. If grinding for a cookout or other gathering where only three or four pounds need grinding, the setup and cleanup will take longer than the actual time spent grinding the meat. I keep the items in plastic bags for storage. The design of the unit permits easy and quick assembly. Cleanup is simple just remove the parts and wash in warm soapy water. DO NOT PUT IN A DISHWASHER. This is a very good choice for anyone that plans on grinding more than a few pounds of meat at one time.
Can't beat this grinder
First grinder I've purchased and I'm glad I bought this one. Went through 40 pounds of venison in less than 15 minutes. Making the sausage links were a breeze also. Very good quality machine with all the attachments you need. Looking forward to making my own ground beef for burgers.
I received this today early. I washed all the parts i was going to use. I had deer meat to grind. Omg. I am in love. It is great. Easy to put together. Easy to take apart and wash. And did a fantastic job. Love it. I will be making sausage later on. I very much think you should get this one I recomend it highly.
After doing so much research we were so excited to finally get our meat grinder! It's definitely going to help stretch our food budget with being able to buy meat in bulk and process our own burger. It's very high quality with a strong motor and a variety of attachments to choose from. The attachments vary from fine to coarse blades along with attachments to make your own sausage and all you need to do is purchase the casings! It took no time at all to grind up the meat to make our own breakfast sausage and all we had to do is add the seasonings to our taste. The grinder is super easy to assemble and take apart. And cleaning was an absolute breeze! Cant wait to see what we will make next!
Making sausage is hobby for us . It does everything it was supposed to do . No more hand cranking and jammed up grinder.
