Our "PATENTED - COWL AIR INDUCTION COOLING SYSTEM" can virtually Double the Life of your meat grinder. This unit comes standard with Size No.12 Grinding Head (NOT a smaller Size No.5 or Size No.8 like most kitchen grinders) manufactured of 100% Polished Food Grade Cast Aluminum (Not Coated) with 3 Stainless Steel Cutting Blades, 3 Sizes of Tempered/Hardened Steel Grinding Plates, a Modified Beaner Plate (designed especially for stuffing and extruding sausage), a Set of 3 Sizes of Sausage Stuffing Tubes with adapter and a Kubbe Attachment. We have sold over "80,000" STX grinders in the past 7 years with a 99.8% Customer Satisfaction Rating. This unit comes standard with 3 Tempered Steel Grinding Plates (Course, Medium & Fine). The diameter of the grinding plates are 2 5/8 Inches (the Standard for a Size No.12 Grinder) which makes for a much faster "grind" due to the larger output for the meat that you are grinding. The grinding plate that looks like a "Wagon Wheel" is used for a Coarse Grind, the grinding plate with the Medium Holes (1/4-Inch Diameter Holes) is used for a Medium Grind and the grinding plate with the Small Holes (5/32 Inch Diameter Holes) is used for a Fine Grind. This unit also comes with 3 Each 100% 304 Grade Stainless Steel Cutting Blades. We include the 3 Cutting Blades so you can match up one Cutting Blade with one Grinding Plate so they are a Matched Set. When you match up a Cutting Blade with a Grinding Plate as a set, this keeps the cutting blades much sharper and your will get a much faster and more precise "Grind" on your meat.
