Maverick 5501 Meat Grinder (#8 head)

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

Maverick's MM-5501 uses a 575 watt motor to grind over 23 pounds of meat in only 10 minutes! Runs quieter than other grinders, for comfortable use. Can be operated continuously. Motor has reversing switch.

Three grinding plates are included with the Maverick MM-5501 meat and food grinder. Precision manufactured stainless steel plates and knives thoroughly grind all types of meat, cheese, vegetables or nuts. Stomper is included. Sausage stuffer tube and spacer are also included.

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".

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

    – Dennis C., IN

The grinder's 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.

The Maverick MM-5501 food and meat grinder features a shear coupler that prevents expensive damage to the motor and transmission in case of obstruction by bone, etc. So if you miss a hard bone, it won't mean the end of your grinder. The grinder has a 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 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.

  • Great grinder!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    We've used a commercial grinder for as long as I can remember. Cannot get parts for it anymore. My husband researched grinders and came across this one. Ground up 3 deer and worked great! We shut it off every 15 minutes as recommended. Never clogged up or bogged down. Thanks for a wonderful product!

  • Small but powerful
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Compact and powerful, easy to clean, and grinds beef into wonderful hamburger. Next will be making pork sausage. Only negative is a need for a slightly smaller diameter stuffing tube to be included (won't fit 26mm casings).

  • Meets our needs
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The Maverick definitely meets our needs for our favorite sandwich makings - chicken salad! It will serve extended family also. Fast delivery and free shipping were a plus.

    Purchased the grinder to prepare fresh meat for our dogs. Use the grinder to prepare chicken wings, necks and backs. Unit is powerful and grinds chicken parts with ease. I would recommend this unit.
