Clearance: Maverick 5501 Grinder

This is an R1 clearance item. Please check the tables below to see how we rate our clearance items.

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".

  • “Excellent grinder. Works great and a great price.”

    – John D., KS

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 decided to purchase the newer version. The newer model performs flawlessly without clogging up with sinew. For the price, you can't go wrong.”

    – Greg C., MI

  3. Discount percentages for R1 and R2 items are minimum discounts... Some items are marked even lower.

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.

    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.

  • WOW!!!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Wow!!! I had no idea that meat processing was gonna be soooo much fun. I was using a grinder that had belonged to my parents, probably bought in the 50's. This grinder is the BEST!!! Thanks for offering such good quality and a great product.

  • 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.

  • Grinder
    By on - Verified Buyer
    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.
