Maverick 5501 Grinder

Maverick's MM-5501 grinder offers speed, toughness and attractive design!

  • “We put up over 100 lbs. of both pork patty and link sausage. It's already paid for itself. GREAT PRODUCT!”

    – Dennis C., IN

Big #8 dies: for easy, fast feeding of all kinds of food. Large #8-diameter plates measure 2-7/16" across, over 30% larger than most grinders in this class. Three plates are included: 1/8" (fine), 3/16" (medium) and 5/16" (coarse.) The Maverick MM-5501 grinds more meat in less time than competing grinders. Throat diameter is a generous 1-9/16".

100% duty cycle means you can grind for hours on end with Maverick meat grinders without the overheating that happens with lesser grinders. The grinder's 8 lb. heft reflects stout construction.

Maverick food and meat grinders have shear inserts to protect the motor from damage in case of obstruction by bone, etc. If you miss a bone, it won't mean the end of your grinder. Ninety day mfg. warranty for home use.

Save money and eat healthier. Fresh ground foods taste better and are better for you. Enjoy knowing what goes into your food with a Maverick meat grinder! Recipes and food preparation tips included.

Fast, easy cleanup: Disassembles completely in seconds for easy cleanup.

Bonus: Includes cookie making die and pasta-tube die for making kebbe.

  • “I can't believe how fast my order came! I thought about ordering from Amazon for two-day shipping but went with Pleasant Hill instead because I've always had great service. Pleasant Hill's prices were better than Amazon for the items I ordered, and it came just as fast.”

    Works great. We have put up over a hundred pounds of both pork patty and link sausage. It has already paid for itself. The Maverick 5501 meat grinder is a GREAT PRODUCT!

  • Plenty of grinding power wiothout clogging
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I can't say enough about this little beast of a grinder! I first bought one in the nineties and was looking to only replace the grinding blade, but with the model now obsolete and parts scarce to find, I decided to purchase the newer version of what I have. Happily I can say that newer model performs flawlessly without clogging up with sinew. For the price, you can't go wrong.

  • Good purchase

    Good purchase. Easy to operate. Used it first to grind some lamb for meatballs, then some beef that ended up a bit tougher than expected. If hubby gets an elk next season, we'll make hamburger and sausage.

    The Maverick meat grinder is very well made and is just what we needed to make our own sausages.
