IMPORTANT: COVID-19 UPDATE
Today we're shipping orders for in-stock items placed November 16. Our Hampton showroom is temporarily closed. Despite high order volume, our amazing shipping team is rapidly reducing processing times—we’ve recently added 20 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!

Clearance: Pro-Cut KT-8 Meat Tenderizer-Cuber
This is an R2 clearance item. Please check the tables below to see how we rate our clearance items.
The Pro-Cut KT-8 commercial meat tenderizer/meat cuber is a very heavy duty, long life machine that provides great results with a high production rate. Even tough meat is turned into tender cuts by 43 hardened stainless steel cutting blades, each having many cutting points. In addition to tenderizing mechanically, this process greatly increases penetration and absorbtion of marinades and seasonings.
The KT-8 tenderizes boneless meat without tearing, making it easy to cook in less time, so meat retains its natural juices. A strong 3/4 HP motor and heavy duty gear transmission handles cuts up to 3/4" thick and 8" wide. Thermomagnetic motor protection guards against overloads. An available fajita attachment extends the abilities of the KT-8.
“Thank you so much for your help! With service like this, your company is going to the top of my where-to-shop list!”
– Diane Speed, OK
The commercial meat tenderizer has a stainless steel cabinet. For safety, a microswitch automatically disconnects motor if cover is opened. Dimensions are 9.5"D x 19.5"W x 29"H. Weight is 73 lbs.
The Pro-Cut KT-8 is safety and sanitation certified, conforming to ETL-UL std. 763, NSF-8 and Canadian CAN/CSA std. C22.2.
This meat tenderizer is excellent for beef, pork, chicken, venison, elk and all other game meats!
Please note: This machine does not cut meat into cubes. In the meat processing industry, just as tenderized round steak is commonly called "cube steak", the term "meat cuber" refers to a machine that tenderizes meat by using sharp knives to cut meat fibers.
For great performance with any cuber-tenderizer, it's very important that your meat is chilled to about 32 degrees F. Warmer meat will tear and mush, and these problems are eliminated by proper chilling. Room temperature meat can be flash-chilled by placing on trays one layer thick in a freezer for 20 minutes.
Pleasant Hill Grain is one of the largest stocking distributors of Pro-Cut equipment in the U.S. Our company sold the highly respected Mexican-built Tor-Rey (also called Torrey) brand of meat processing equipment until the Pro-Cut brand was established specifically to do business in the U.S. market. Pro-Cut has no business connection with Torrey today—but their basic machine designs are the same, and having sold both brands for years, we can vouch that Pro-Cut's quality is fully the equal of Torrey. Pro-Cut builds time-proven, workhorse machines you can depend on, with excellent pricing.
At Pleasant Hill Grain we're here as your meat processing resource. Whether you need a commercial meat tenderizer, replacement parts or just answers to some questions, we look forward to serving you!

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.|

By Gale S. in MO on 2/29/2016 - Verified BuyerPleasant Hill Grain had the best price I could find. We ran beef round steaks through once than turned the steaks 90 degrees and ran them through again. We cooked the steaks they were so tender we cut the steak with a butter knife. The KT-8 is blocky looking most other brands have a clear plastic guard you can see the meat feed through the knives. The knives are hard to clean. Very satisfied.Moderator:
FYI, the blade blocks can be lifted out and placed in the dishwasher. Thanks for your review Gale!2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?
