  • “This LEM meat grinder's so strong I don't think it can be jammed unless intentionally. It has the Big Bite auger that really moves a lot of meat. Strong, quiet, easy cleanup.”

    – Stephen H., MO

The feed augers of LEM meat grinders have a proprietary Big Bite design that lets them grab meat chunks easily, saving you from having to force meat into the machine. ETL-Sanitary Certified to NSF Standards.

  • #22 Big bite
    By on - Verified Buyer
    This is what I'm talking about!!! Heavy duty, quiet, and EATS the meat. Ran a deer through it yesterday and had no problems at all. With our old grinder we had to spend a lot of time cutting everything off of the meat so we didn't clog it up. I decided to leave a lot of extra stuff on the meat that I would normally have to take off just to see how it would handle it. Absolutely awesome. Didn't miss a beat. Didn't bog down and didn't plug up the plate. Ran through it like a hot knife through butter. Should have purchased this years ago. Enjoyed it so much, I told my buddies that I would bring the grinder over and grind their deer up for them. Next... 1700 lb. bull with a bad leg.

    Great build quality, an extremely strong motor, and the five year warranty sealed the deal for me. You can't beat LEM.

  • Smooth transaction. Great product.
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Questions prior to purchase were answered fully and in reasonable time. Product arrived on time and in good condition. This is a great meat grinder. Extra price is well worth it. No longer do I need to dice meat into small pieces or prefreeze it. Second grind is just as easy as first.

  • Quick, Easy, and Affordable!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    If you are not a fan of the short cuts all the stores take when processing your food, You can make what you want! quicker than you can drive to the store to buy what you really do not enjoy!! Grind your meats to suit you! Not the quickest, and sometimes watered down way others work your food! It will be fresher, taste better, and only have in it what you want in it. No water, no filler of weight that changes the taste, and above all, ground the way you want it ground!! This unit is solid, quiet, and fast! It will not keep you working long, Remarkable what it can do in just a few minutes, and you will finally taste ground meat, etc, the way it is suppose to taste! ENJOY!!!
