  • “Outstanding commercial style grinder in a smaller footprint. It grinds fast, with precision. Had a grinder on my mixer, pitiful, used once and then bought this baby. Totally different experience. Made 20 lbs of sausage lickity split.”

Bottom Line: If you’re a highly detail-oriented person, we recommend sticking to “R1.” But after a week’s use, the only real difference between one of these items and a brand new one will be the money you saved.

Expanded Ratings Descriptions

R1 Very close scrutiny is required to tell that the item isn’t brand new. Working surfaces may show slight wear; for example, the bottom-inside of a Bosch mixer bowl may show swirl marks because Bosch mixer whips are designed to “float” against bottom of bowl. Non-working surfaces (cabinet, control panel) look essentially new. Carton may not be perfect.
R2 Typically has a small scuff or mark on a non-working surface like a mixer cabinet or the top of a pressure cooker lid.
FR Mostly returned items which have been brought fully up to new-equipment performance specs at the factory.
D Demonstration items have been operated briefly at Pleasant Hill Grain.
DIS These items have never been used but we no longer sell them at full price in our store because it was discontinued by us or by the manufacturer.
U Has had light use.
SDB Has moderate damage or blemish on a non-working surface, such as a scratch or dent in the housing, or paint blemish.
NOS A brand new item that isn't the newest model.

    Outstanding commercial style grinder in a smaller footprint. It grinds fast, with precision. Had a grinder on my mixer, pitiful, used once and then bought this baby. Totally different experience. Made 20 lbs of sausage lickity split. Recommend you pick up Bruce Aidell's sausage book as well.

    By on - Verified Buyer
    Used this for grinding meat at home, saved us about 6 hours over grinding by hand. The product worked great but more importantly, the customer service was above and beyond what a lot of businesses provide.

    My older dogs must have their dry food ground up. After destroying many choppers, Cuisinarts, etc., I sent Pleasant Hill the dog food and they ground up a sample. They tested the food and called me with the perfect grinder. Thank you Pleasant Hill Grain!

  • What a Grinder!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I am almost reluctant to provide a review on a product that I just received. Anyhow the grinder arrived and it was very well packaged. So, of course, I had to try it right away. It was obvious that this grinder is very well constructed and is ideal for home use. My first grind was excellent and I am very satisfied so far with the quality. Additionally, the ordering process and the pre-purchase inquiry was very helpful. The packaged arrived on time as predicted and I have no complaints at all.
