IMPORTANT: COVID-19 UPDATE
Today we're shipping orders for in-stock items placed October 13. Our Hampton showroom is temporarily closed. Despite high order volume, our amazing shipping team is rapidly reducing processing times—we’ve recently added 17 new team members! We greatly appreciate your business and we’re doing our very best to serve you, as Jim C. of California tells. A word to the wise: Because resupply of many product lines remains daunting, and processing times may grow again in coming weeks, there’s never been a year like this to do your Christmas shopping and other year-end buying very early!

By Kim C. in NY on 11/25/2016 - Verified BuyerI'm very impressed with this grinder. It's heavy duty, grinds the meat very quickly, easy to assemble and clean, and quieter than I expected (because I had read a review that said it was loud--my old, plastic type grinder was much louder than this). It's slightly heavy but what do you expect for stainless steel construction. I would recommend this to anyone... now after 6 months, and using it several times, it is still awesome. Thank you for such a good product.14 out of 14 people found this review helpful. Did you?

By Steve B., IN on 11/23/2016 - Verified BuyerThe grinding head weighs about as much as my entire previous grinder. Much more powerful and grinds fast.7 out of 7 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Garrett D. in FL on 6/23/2018 - Verified BuyerTo each their own. Had a 150 lb wild sow on ice waiting on my new grinder. Followed the directions and ran through the 3/8 grinder plate. Not a snag. Took me a half hour to prepare the meat for the grinder and just a few minutes to grind. Put the ground meat in the freezer for about a half hour to run through the 1/8 inch grinder. Meanwhile I was defrosting a couple of pounds of hog fat and about 10 lbs of cubed meat that had been in the freezer since my last grinder failed. When it was half thawed I ran it through without a glitch. Then took out the 3/8 ground meat to run through. This went a little slower. Once the meat is ground you have to use the tamper to feed the auger. In my case I won't use the 3/8 again but go right to the 1/8 plate. The cubes I had in the freezer came out perfect. And I just put in some cut fat at the same time. I was also concerned that the #8 would be too small, but not the case. Quick and strong. Finally, the best feature according to my wife is it's super quiet! She couldn't carry on a conversation with my old grinder, but she had no difficulty giving me advice with this whisper quiet grinder.5 out of 5 people found this review helpful. Did you?

By Penny H. in OR on 12/23/2017 - Verified BuyerI made a purchase of a meat grinder for my son. It was a Christmas gift and sent to his house in another state. The company called me not realizing it was back ordered to let me know it may not get there before Christmas. They apologized and said they weren't sure but they will do everything they could to get a Terri for Christmas. And yes it did arrive before Christmas, four days before. Great customer service.3 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?
