Get Ready for Delicious Meals By Using A Meat Grinder

When it comes to processing meat, using a meat grinder makes quick work of an otherwise tough job. There are many different types of new and used meat grinders for sale on eBay.

How do you select a meat grinder?

You will first want to decide on your power source. eBay meat grinders will either be manual or electric. In general, a manual meat grinder for sale will be easy to store as they are typically relatively small in size. There is a definite speed factor when going with an electric version. You will also want to look at:

  • Durability: These machines do a lot of work in a short period of time, putting them through some wear and tear. You will want something that will be long-lasting, especially if you expect to use it frequently. Grinders with molded plastic components are fine and usually more affordable. Cast aluminum is one of the commercial-grade materials.
  • Cutting blade: Stainless steel cutting blades are used by many in the industry because this metal can retain its sharpness and shape. In addition to being easy to clean, it is also rust-resistant.
Types of meat grinders

The set-up of a grinder will depend on your kitchen's layout. The different categories include:

  • Clamp-mounted: If you have a countertop that extends beyond your cabinetry, consider the clamp-mounted meat grinder such as the Weston Manual Tinned-Meat Grinder and Sausage Stuffer.
  • Bolt-mounted: If you have a wooden work table that can be used for cooking projects, mounting a grinder with a bolt is a possibility. Chop-Rite and LEM both make bolt-down machines.
  • Suction-mounted Another manual version is a suction-mounted grinder, such as the Aliskid manual meat grinder, which can be quickly attached to a flat surface.
  • Attachment: If you have a stand mixer, you will be able to use a meat grinder attachment with it. You will already have a processor bowl and a reliable motor that will be able to power the blade.
  • Stand-alone: A stand-alone electric meat grinder machine may be a good investment if you frequently process meat and do not already have a stand mixer. Examples include the Sunmile SM-G31 electric meat grinder and the LEM Big Bite electric grinder.
Other functions

A cheap meat grinder on eBay might have just one function, but many do more than that. Some can shred and cube, and many can also be used to stuff sausages into casings.
