We bought this grinder to make our own pet food. When you grind up even stew beef or chicken livers and hearts, it is CONSTANTLY getting clogged in the output holes and you have to CONSTANTLY take the whole thing apart, pull all the stuff out of the holes, and clean out the inside before grinding again. Same with chicken. Won't even grind up breast meat without jamming up. It seems unless you're grinding only the leanest tenderloin, with no fat or grissle, or that strip of white sinew that goes thru chicken, it'd be just fine. I can only imagine the aggravation if we used the small holed disk to grind anything. If you're going to grind anything but the best and leanest meats, spend the extra money and go for the Tasin 108 which grinds ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. We're sure wishing we had! Otherwise be prepared to spend literally HOURS grinding up the simplest and smallest amount of meats with a lot of aggravation to boot.
Used this grinder for the first time today and I love it. It is noisy, but then so is the garbage disposal and vacuum and I still use them too. If meat is cut thin enough it feeds itself. Easy tear down and cleanup. I like that the plates are stainless, but I am annoyed that they did not include a medium cutting disc with this model. It appears to be much heavier and more stable than others I looked at and I believe it should last a long time as I'm not grinding meat for a McDonalds.
I bought this for a gift. When I saw how well it worked, I was happy with it. This is a must have for anyone who loves to cook. It's also a healthy alternative because you can control what's in the meat or if you like grind some chicken or lean turkey. Easy clean up and assembly.
I use this grinder to make lots of zucchini relish for gifts & personal use. I would say that this grindle has meet my expectation, even thought I'd prefer a more chunky relish. I would like to see several different heads that the food goes through to adjust the size of the finished product, but i like the power overall.
I love this meat grinder. Powerful, reverse motor, hard working, easy to clean and reasonable feeder try. I would like a feeder tray to have deeper walls for containing the meat, but this is a minor point. Best meat grinder I have ever used.
