Product Description

Grip-EZ Meat Pounder is stainless steel over iron and weighs 28 ounces. There is brawn behind this beauty. It has a santoprene handle for easy gripping. It pounds meat to be uniformly flat and makes tough cuts more tender. Allowing meat to cook evenly.

Amazon.com

Sooner or later, every cook needs a proper meat pounder for flattening chicken-fried steak, chicken breasts, or veal scallops, or for evening out the thickness of butterflied leg of lamb so it cooks uniformly on the grill. This one's as good as they get. With a professional weight (26 ounces) and size (3-1/4 inches in diameter), it's heavy enough for quick work but small enough for precise maneuverability. Made of mirror-polished stainless steel, with a santoprene handle to provide a sure grip even when wet, this essential kitchen tool should last a lifetime. --Fred Brack

Because of its proper weight and non-slip handle this meat pounder gives excellent control to the cook and flattened meats come out uniform and even with little effort.
We have a flat hammer-like meat pounder which requires great skill and force to produce the same results. This Norpro pounder is easy to use and control. Rightfully judged the " Best Meat Pounder" by Cook's Illustrated.
As with all previous orders Amazon delivered it promptly and in excellent condition.

This kitchen tool is ideal for tenderizing meat, thinning out sirloin for carpaccio and chicken for basil and mozzarella stuffed chicken breasts. I like that it's made well, very heavy, and from a solid piece of stainless steel. It washes up very easily and doesn't have issues with water collecting, because it's only seam (visible in the picture) is extremely tight. The handle is large and easy to grip for me (medium sized male hands) but might be too large for someone with small hands or short fingers. I've been very happy with this tool and would happily recommend it.

What a huge difference the Norpro Stainless Steel Grip-EZ Meat Pounder makes!!! The weight is perfect and makes it so easy to flatten a chicken breast for my chicken Parmesan. I even sliced a pork roast and pounded the slices for some great cutlets! No tired arm. No beaten to death meat. No torn up pieces because I can't get the slice more even. Easy to clean too...no seams for food to stick in! Ten Stars and a special spot in my kitchen for this little wonder!

I do not like this meat pounder. While I usually agree with the assessments from America's Test Kitchen/Cook's Illustrated, this time I do not. Before writing this, I went to their site to re-read the review and saw that they had declared this Norpro model the victor from among only five models tested. It IS heavy; it IS well-balanced; it IS easy to grip. However, the jarring force exerted on the cook's hand and wrist at the point of impact is pronounced, and I'm no 90-pound weaking. I can feel it in my bones! A pounder with the weight (and impact) positioned away from the wrist by a longer handle to the side is much easier, more efficient, and I'd guess, much safer to use. This one is OK for smaller projects, like one or two chicken breasts. It causes too much discomfort in the hand and wrist to be used for much more at one time.

I was looking for a meat mallet, and came across this meat pounder insteas. I read the reviews and thought it sounded better than a mallet so I ordered it. I am so happy I did, because it is the best.
It is easy to grip and easy to use. It is like an extension to your fist, you have more control than you do with a mallet. It is easier to get the meat to an even thickness, because of the larger pounding surface. With a mallet you keep hammering and some parts get thinner than others. With this "pounder" it is easier to get that perfect thickness because you can "feel" what you are doing.
I've crushed walnuts and almonds. I've flattened chicken and pork and I've used it to weigh down sandwiches like a panini press. I use a piece of aluminum foil and put the meat pounder on top. Works great. If you're in the market for a meat mallet...try this pounder instead, you won't be sorry.

The first time I used this pounder I gripped it with my hand resting on the base, and my hand really hurt afterwards. So I filled out a return form and planned on returning it. But then I looked at the box and realized I was holding it wrong. On the box, the person is holding the TOP of the handle, not the bottom. So I tried it that way -- and it worked great, with no pain whatsoever. When you hold the pounder at the top, the weight of the base is enough so that you really don't have to press the pounder down. Rather, you can basically let it drop onto the meat you're pounding and let the weight of it do the work. Having figured out how to use this pounder I think it works really well. The base is pretty wide so you get a good amount of pounding for each pound.

They probably should include some instructions with this though -- some of the other reviews suggest people are having the same issue I did.

I am happy to find a reasonably priced pounder that is stainless steel and therefore dishwasher safe.
