    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.

    Does the job.

    Unit works great to process venison. Grinds up nearly frozen chunks well. It went through two deer in about an hour. I also have used the sausage attachment which worked well, with a few minor issues. Would prefer a slightly longer stuffing tube to accommodate more casing. The tapered nature of the tube was difficult to fit an adequate supply of collagen casing which resulted in shorter than desired links, but overall was workable for the cost. Also the base unit could have been a little heavier to stabilize from moving, but as stuffing was a two man job anyways, not a major issue. I like the stainless components (with exception of the plastic gear) which come into contact with what you are grinding (gear does not touch meat). Although the gear is plastic, it seems to be robust enough to last and a spare gear is included with the unit. All in all, for the price, it is well worth not paying a butcher what I accomplished in an evening with two people.

    Quiet Workhorse

    We are using this grinder in our school cafeteria. It is quiet yet very powerful. Other products do the job but are extremely noisey. A quiet unit was a necessity for us because our cafeteria is next to classrooms. However we didn't want to sacrifice power. We are thrilled with the perforformance of this grinder, and the cookie attachment is an added plus. We also needed the durability and cleanliness of stainless steel parts. This machine is getting a heavier workout in our kitchen than it would in a residential setting, and it is handling the workload effortlessly. We grind over 20 lbs of meat everytime we use it, usually frozen meat. No problems and easy clean up. Love our grinder.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Destroyed Itself

    I bought this grinder based off of the overwhelmingly glowing reviews here, but my experience it was terrible. It's use was to be to help in our foray into sausage making, but it turned an already long and arduous task into a nightmare. Where do I start? Pieces of tendon and fat would clog it up and need to be forcefully removed from the machine. It makes the loudest, most unholy screeching noise of any meat grinder I've ever heard, and, worst of all...it ground ITSELF. Yeah, that's right. After one half-hour of use, the grinder had taken chunks out of itself with the grinding mechanism. Literal chunks. It pitted itself and began to rust in the dishwasher. Yes, yes, it doesn't say anywhere that it's dishwasher safe, but in the this day and age...it really should say that it's NOT. Fortunately, Walmart's return policy is nearly flawless and we were able to return the cleaned item for a full refund. It's possible we got the dud, considering everyone else says it was quiet and perfect and powerful. Us? We'll invest in a good hand-crank.

    "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!!

    Weston Heavy-Duty Electric Meat Grinder

    Great meat grinder. Works very easy, light weight and easy to store. Clean up is easy but you should not put the grinder housing and pan in the dish washer. Hand wash only. We had been using a KitchenAid mixer/ grinder attachment. This thing blows that away x10. The grinder comes with alot of great accessories and it also has one extra drive connector in case you break one. Most all the parts are metal other than the connector. I am guessing this was made this way so it would fail in case of a jam so it would not damage the motor or auger housing. Well built unit for the price. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a grinder for occasional use in the kitchen.

    Real Nice product

    Good horse power. Easy to clean. I have had it for about three weeks and used it four or five times. I think as long as you follow the instructions you will get your money's worth. I am very pleased and enjoy making my own sausage and ground meat. I know now what I am buying as for quality of meat because i do my own. This ginder does not over heat and just grinds away as long as you cube the meat. Go for it !
