When I saw the Microplane model I first thought, "No moving parts, especially parts that work in significant tension." I have a Microplane grater that I use for grating nutmeg and similar uses, and this wheelie thing sort of looked really cool. After using it on a tough beef steak, pork steak, chicken thighs, I must say I'm impressed. The reality is this is just a mini-handheld version of the way meat is cubed in your market. There is somewhat of a learning curve on rocking the device over the meat, rather than just pounding it into pieces and the blades are maybe 3/8 inches tall, so the blades really don't go all the way through the meat, but because it does cut the connecting tissue so well, it really does make the meat very tender and enlarges the result so a "chicken fired steak" tends to stay spread out, rather than shrink to the original shape, which seemed to be the case with the Jaccard type machines.
The only complaint that I can see is some people make have, is a concern with cleanliness. I do not believe that knives should go through a dishwasher, and this tenderizer is a series of very sharp knives. It does clean easily with a stiff brush under hot tap water, which I would believe is the preferred method of obtaining and maintaining sanitary usage. Furthermore it is way easier to clean than the Jaccard type tenderizers.
I plan to buy another one for my cabin in the woods. For hunters and those who are into grass fed beef and similar food sources, I highly recommend you give this a try, and forget the Jaccard devices, or as a replacement, when those self destruct.
I did not have any trouble rolling it on the meat. I use this regularly and am pleased with the tenderness of the meat and the little pores it leaves behind for seasoning. All said and done I would definitely recommend this product.

Be careful not to stab your hand. but this totally works for tough meat!
to clean, just use a tooth brush.
Very sharp. Needs blades that go farther around the circle to me. Maybe I am just tlazy though! Pretty good all in all.Published on March 27, 2014 by Patrick McDonald
