Great grinder for the money.
on December 23, 2011
I love making my own ground beef and have done so for years. When my last made in china grinder died I decided to see what I could find that was made in the USA. LEM fit the bill. This is on the low end of their grinders but it seems well made. The week after it arrived a local store put their roasts on sale so I had a chance to see how well it worked.
My old grinder had to be coerced with a plunger to chew on the meat strips. This LEM grinder grabbed the meat and self fed without a problem. I ground 17 pounds of meat in about 10 minutes. We use a foodsaver to package and freeze the ground beef and usually my wife is waiting on me to grind more so she can seal it. With this grinder, I finished grinding and then had to help her with the packaging.
This is a perfect grinder for light home use. If I had a large family or hunted big game I'd probably chose one of their heavier grinders.
