Fresh ground sausages, pates, meats for chili, and fish for soups can all be prepared at home with this professional quality meat grinder. Solid and sturdy, the beautiful brushed stainless-steel housing should last a lifetime.
After my years-old Waring Pro MG100 died, I ordered one of these last Nov. Ran strong & great for 6 mo, grinding up chicken for my kitty food. Then one day it seemed the motor was running a little slower than usual- right up til it made the terrible noise & died. Yes, I got the extra service plan- returned (easy), refunded (quickly), & just reordered a new one (should come very soon!). Even tho the first one died, I'm still getting another one because I liked this unit the first time around. I never made sausage so I can't speak to those accessories, but the motor is defintely powerful enough for my needs. The exit chute does seem a bit short, but I never had any problem getting even my large bowl under it. I like that it has a spanner for removing the end piece (the old one didn't have that, made it VERY hard to remove after use). The hopper & chute are much larger than old grinder, processes meat quickly. It does make some noise (hey, it's a meat grinder- it's gonna make a little noise), but much quieter than my old model was. I once accidentally had the switch flipped on before plugging unit in, & it did not start running until I turned the switch off & then back on again- I like that it does that! To the person who complained about the parts losing their"normal color and shine" after washing: the reason that happened is because you ran them thru the dishwasher. Something about dishwasher detergent adversely affects certain metals, leaves them dull & pitted, which is probably why the instruction manual states that all parts need to be hand-washed. (yes- I once ran the parts from my old grinder thru the dishwasher so I KNOW what happens to them ...) I always hand washed the parts for this grinder & they still looked nice & shiny 6 mo later. DO buy the extended service plan- it's well worth $16! I recommend using a soft hand while grinding-- don't try to force-feed the meat.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? excellent- body is actually stainless steel, not plastic like other grinders
Please tell us about the quality of the product. good quality- giving 4 stars only because I had to replace unit after 6 mo
How accurate was the on site description of the product? fairly accurate
Mine broke after about 10-12 pounds of meat, the motor would quit when i began putting meat in. Im guessing it was a manufacture malfunction. If you buy it make sure you get the 2 year warranty. After i washed it, it lost all its normal color and shine
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? After first wash it lost all its normal color and shine
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Not the greatest for the money
