We purchased this grinder to grind chicken meat and organs. It would get hung up and we had to turn it off, let it cool down, clear out the blades and then restart again once it was cooled off and this was on our first attempt at using it. We were not grinding up serious bone or anything. We did try the occasional chicken neck and it actually did better on one neck at a time than it did on meat and skin. The pusher seemed to just make things worse. We returned it. If you need to grind meat, spend more money and get a serious meat grinder.
After reading chapter 9, titled "Meat" from Anthony Bourdain's "Medium Raw", I will NEVER use or eat pre-processed ground meat again. I made ground beef hamburgers from beef a few weeks ago, and they were actually quite good. The grinder worked well, but a tip I learned AFTER the fact was that I should have frozen the meat first before grinding. This is a basic grinder, other than the sausage maker, all it does is grind meat. I had to stop and un-jam it a few times because I did not trim the meat first, and it comes apart easy enough to clean while in progress. Cleaned up afterwards was easy, stored away easy. For something I will hopefully use once every month or so, it was an appropriate value.
I have used the grinder only a couple of times, so durability is a guess, but since we are not hunters who process a whole moose in two days, hope it will last.
A pleasant surprise - it is very light, much lighter than expected from a motor, and the noise level is low. Overall, very good!
Works good if you cut the meat in 1" cubes as suggested in the manual. It struggles a little with bigger chunks of meat.
Pleasantly surprised to see "Made in Japan" on it.
I used it once, so far seems to be what I wanted.
Well built, strong, quiet, easy to use and easy to disassemble and clean. I use it regularly and am glad I bought it. Although it doesn't appear it in the picture, it is slightly larger than I expected, and glad of it. A first quality appliance fairly priced.
I bought this meat grinder specifically to grind pork. The pork membranes constantly clogged the cutting blade and opening, rendering the machine useless. It had less trouble grinding beef, but still couldn't cut the membranes. I returned the grinder.
It is helpful for us to prepare our food. It saves our time. With this product we can do lots of delicious dishs.
If you care your kitchen you should buy it.
I bought it few day ago, and from the first use i washed the Metal parts at night and left it on the side to dry until the morning.
The next day I found that some of the parts are rusted, so I took it back to the store the same week.
This grinder may not be strong enough for commercial use but it is perfect for the private kitchen. We have ground up beef, chicken and pork without issue. The grinder prepares the meat to a consistent ground and is powerful enough to handle fairly large amounts of meat.
We were impressed enough with this product to purchase one for another family member.
This is a great product for processing venison
Having a blast grinding up anything and everything. Quiet, compact, works just as I had hoped!
Although a bit noisy, the motor is very powerful and will grind meats, fruits, and vegetables without any problems. CLean up is easy.
My husband and I used this meat grinder when we butchered a hog. We were impressed by the power and speed. We had no problems grinding 25 lb. of sausage meat. We like lean sausage so we didn't grind a lot of fat. We didn't freeze our meat first. We took it straight from the fridge. So far no complaints, there was an odor when we first turned it on but it quickly disappeared. Highly recommend for quality and price.
Great item but be careful the blades rust easily
I bought this grinder to make dog food for my small do. She has been eating Paleo for 2 years and was hoping to cut costs. This grinder did not grind chicken thighs, bot defrosted and frozen...meat got stuck in the holes, backing everything up. The whole process was very messy as I had to disassemble every time to clean out the opening.
It works like a champ. It is made in Japan and it's sold at Walmart (rare). Best price offered by Walmart.
Bought as a gift. Has been used only once. Seens to work great
This grinder was very easy to set up, use and the clean up was a breeze! I was truly surprise and more than pleased and I recommend it highly.
If anyone need a meat grinder
That is the thing for you

that is a staff
and I know good staff I was a cook when I was younger
