Product Description

Product Description

Nor Pro Meat Grinder/Mincer/Pasta Maker. 7" Height. Ideal for meats, beans, nuts and many vegetables! Make your own pasta from your favorite recipe. Includes instruction and recipe booklet. Comes with two screens: Coarse mincing plate, fine mincing plate, sausage funnel and 3 pasta attachments: rigatoni, spaghetti and linguine.

Amazon.com

Norpro’s meat grinder/mincer/pasta maker combines the functionality of three kitchen gadgets in one. Crush beans, vegetables and nuts for spreads and pâté; grind beef chuck, round or sirloin for incredible homemade hamburgers; pulverize stale bread for breadcrumbs; or break up veggies for baby food. The possibilities are endless thanks to coarse- and fine-textured steel mincing plates.

Three pasta attachments open up a world of Italian cuisine, enabling cooks to create fresh homemade rigatoni, spaghetti, or linguine. Plus, an enclosed funnel makes grinding sausage a snap. Also included are a suction-locking pestle, plastic tray, detailed instructions, and a recipe booklet. The unit stands 7 inches high with a 4-1/4 inch diameter base. This kitchen tool is FDA-approved. --Mary Park

Customer Reviews

It is clean and easy to be cleaned.
Richard
Any amount of fat not trimmed off of the cut of meat will jam up the blades and the entire operation comes to a halt.
SeattleCook
The suction cup base holds strong on my granite counter top and handle is easy to turn.

I like this grinder.

In the past I've owned the metal grinders that you have to clamp to a table and the electric kind with big motors that take up most of the space on the kitchen counter. They were so clumsy and a pain to clean that I seldom used either one. The electric one failed recently grinding peanuts!! and the old metal manual one got left behind in the last move so I decided to try this Nor-Pro despite it being made partly of plastic.

I was pleasantly surprised at how well it works. You do have to assemble the blades correctly. My first project was meatballs -- it ground the meat(buffalo stew meat in this case), the onions, a little garlic, mint stems and leaves, and the dry bread all very nicely into the square bowl which is included with the grinder. I grind my own meat to avoid the fat and "parts" from supermarket hamburger. The coarse grind is just right for tacos or wonton filling. Cleanup was easy - I put the pieces in the square bowl, added some hot water and a squirt of detergent and it was all clean in a few minutes and ready to use for the next meal. The extra pieces fit into a small plastic ziplock bag along with the basic instructions so they are not likely to get separated or lost. The rectangular bowl is attractive enough and the right size to take to table to serve sushi or gyoza.

The plastic is nice sturdy plastic like that in Lego toys. You do need to have a smooth countertop for the suction to work to stabilize the base(it doesn't work on my butcher-block table). It looks nice sitting on the counter so there it stays and gets used a lot. I only use my blender for smoothies nowadays. Nuts and beans and all sorts of other foods get ground in this little grinder.

One needs to make sure the pasta dough is not too moist...

Don't be put off by the low price. This thing does exactly what it is expected to do exactly as one would expect it to do it.

Even the priciest gourmet food store does not clean its meat grinder to my satisfaction. Your medium rare burger is going to contain some medium rare pork as well.

Anyway, this thing replaces an attachment on my Kitchenaid stand mixer. It is easier, faster and simpler to clean. I love the way this thing adheres to the counter. Three pound meatloaf of beef, pork and veal took just 10 minutes. DEFINITELY put the meat in the freezer for about an hour before grinding. Cut the meat into strips. It only takes a few minutes to figure out what works well and what does not. For burgers, you might want to run the meat through twice.

I haven't a clue why some of these reviews are negative. Perhaps they assembled the mechanism incorrectly.

Bought this item based on the large number of positive reviews here on Amazon. Had no intention of using it for pasta, just meat.

FIRST - no one mentions that the handle is longer than the unit is tall. So where and how it sticks to what surface is immaterial if none of these surfaces is an edge. My formica counter top has a raised lip, so it didn't work on the edge as I needed.

Overcame that problem, and embarked on my first project, grinding some top round for making meat loaf.

SECOND - any fat and tendons do stick and clog the grinder. Easier with the coarse screen than the fine, but it got stuck so badly, the cover plate totally unscrewed and came off!

today, tried making sausage. had to stop in mid project and switch back to grandma's old Universal grinder.

The semi-frozen trick didn't help.

If you are just getting started on doing your own meat grinding and are really going to stay with extremely lean meat, this is a great unit to get started with. If you are grinding vegetables, cooked grains, to make veggie burgers, baby food, or for someone who needs soft foods, again, good unit. If you are planning on doing any kind of larger quantities, get yourself either an electric or a good, bolt on the counter, universal metal grinder.

I have been looking for this item as I bought mine several years ago and could not find it again, until now. I had planned to give it to my kids for Christmas as it is such a great item to have, neat, clean, handy and works great...but you have to do it correctly. If you put the blade in backwards it will NOT work. Read the instructions for those that did NOT like it.

Great item.

After Fox news told me about "pink slime" going into the ground meat that I buy at the supermarket I decided to grind the meat myself. Read a lottttttt of reviews and took away a little from each. For instance, J. Ferguson said to cut the meat in strips. Elaborating on that I advise you to cut the meat in strips the size of your middle finger. Another reviewer said to place the meat in the freezer for about 20 min. because it'll slice easier and if you try to grind the meat while it's real soft it'll squirt juice all over the place. The grinder is a lot smaller than the picture would have you believe. The hopper is only about the size of a 1 cup measuring container.
I was only interested in hamburger meat so I bought two five pound rump roasts which is ground round (after it's ground) for $2.88 a pound on sale. Grinder was on the way. Put the roasts in the freezer for about 30 min. Sliced steaks off the roast about as thick as my middle finger. Then I cut the steaks into strips and length about the size of my middle finger. When the grinder arrived I put all the strips in the freezer for about two hours. Read the instructions on the grinder, took it apart, washed everything and put it back together. Anchored the grinder to the countertop and when the meat was rigid enough I started grinding.Remember, the idea of partially freezing the meat is so that it doesn't squirt juice all over the place. Grinder never came unstuck. You have to use that big white tool that comes with the grinder to lock it to the countertop by turning the locking nut until you feel it lock. While grinding you can't just drop the meat into the hopper and expect the auger to catch it and push it into the blade.
