Today we're shipping orders for in-stock items placed October 11. 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!

  • This grinder is a beast
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Awesome grinder. First use I butchered two small pigs and had around 125 lbs of sausage to grind. In less than 20 minutes it was done. This grinder is a beast, I couldn't feed it fast enough. Well worth the money.

  • Monster
    By on - Verified Buyer
    It's a monster. The LEM 32 is everything and more than I ever thought it could be. Grinding is effortless and fast the slicer and tenderizer performed wonderfully and the staff at PHG were very helpful. Three months of use 2 big thumbs up.

  • Pan guard has to go!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I purchased this grinder to speed processing time up. The pan guard slows grind time up considerably. After cutting the guard off, knowing the stomper would hit, I ended up breaking a brand new stomper I would have rated a 5 had LEM sold the unit without the pan guard and the correct size stomper. The unit is alot quiter than my old #8 LEM grinder.

    Like other manufacturers, LEM builds the guard in to prevent users' fingers from being cut off.

  • Fantastic grinder
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Fantastic grinder. I ordered it from Pleasant Hill rather than from LEM because they offered free shipping. This grinder makes short work of processing my venison every year. I've been very satisfied with all PHG products and service.
