This unit also comes with 3 Each #304 Grade Stainless Steel Cutting Blades. We include the 3 Cutting Blades so you can match up one Cutting Blade with one of each of the 3 Grinding Plates included 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 you will get a much faster and more precise "Grind" on your meat. Since the cutting blades are manufactured out of Stainless Steel, you can wash these either by hand or put them in the dishwasher.
Mount the cutting blade on the front of the auger. PLEASE NOTE the flat sharpened part of the cutting blade should be facing OUT, otherwise it WILL NOT GRIND properly
* DO NOT WASH ANY PARTS OF THIS GRINDER IN THE DISHWASHER!!! The 4 parts of
the grinding head (head locking cap, auger, grinding head & meat hopper) are made from
100% cast aluminum. Wash these in liquid dishwashing detergent (like Dawn) and hot water,
towel dry immediately and store for the next use. Do not soak parts in water for long periods
of time - they WILL discolor. Do not wash and lay flat to air dry - they WILL discolor.
