There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
After some research, we ordered it from Amazon. The delivery time was as promised. The machine was very well packed in a so protective box.
Our first test of the product revealed that we made the right choice. Some points to highlight:
1. Most parts are polished aluminum. So easy for cleaning, very nice appearance;
2. The finishing is careful at every detail. It is clearly a good quality product;
3. It works wonderfully. The powerful motor is far more than enough for regular meat;
4. The ground meat texture results very similar to that from a supermarket grinder. I've seen other home meat grinders that produced a kind of a paste. This one, however, preserves the texture as it should be: perfect for hamburgers, tartar beef and so on;
5. It is so easy to assemble/disassemble and to operate. Impossible to mistake;
6. Despite we didn't use it yet, the sausage kit will be very helpful.
In short, this is a 5 stars product, no doubts about that.
But we had a problem: the aluminum parts are NOT dishwasher safe. We didn't notice that, and what went to the dishwasher was damaged: the shining was gone and those parts became some rough to touch. So, I contacted the seller (The Mercantile Station) and asked them the price of the replacing parts, since I would buy them. What a pleasant surprise: they promptly sent me an email asking for my address, and they kindly offered to send the parts for free (despite, I must stress, the damage was caused by me).
What an elegant attitude! So, would Amazon allow it, the seller would deserve SIX stars.
IMPORTANT NOTE: a few months after we bought our STX, the motor was improved to 2,000 watts, i.e, an increase of about 11%. I'd guess that, with this new and more powerful motor, the machine will able to perform an even heavier duty. My one is still working so fine, no complaints at all.
AN ADDITIONAL NOTE AFTER ALMOST 2 YEARS OF USE: the machine is still perfect, as when it was new. No problems at all. I am really impressed with the superior quality. A great deal!
The STX 3000 TF is awesome! I used it the first time today to grind 5 lbs of Chuck Roast for Chili. I first cut the roast into about 1" X 2" strips (give or take) and used the "Windmill" blade to chop it once, then I used the fine blade to make hamburger. (Double Grind see my picture above). I did not have to practically freeze the meat (it was at refrigerator temperature) and the end result was hamburger that looked as good (if not better) than the stuff you get at the Butcher Shop. I did this in about 30 minutes or so. Then, it took me about 15 minutes to clean the unit. Because this grinder actually empties pretty much the entire grinding tube there was little left to scrape out and throw away like my hand grinder (I usually could count on wasting about 8 oz of product whenever I used it). The STX 3000 bogged down just a little bit when I got a little bold and put a larger chunk of roast in, but it never once overheated. I am so looking forward to making other things with this grinder! It is well worth the money for home use and I expect it to last for many years. What a great product!
abalone. What a pain that was. I came to Amazon and started researching electric
grinders. That's when I found STX 3000 TF.
It was easy to put together. And very easy to use. Took us only minutes to grind
2 abalones compared to 30 minutes the old fashion way.
Two things that could be helpful: freeze your product about 15 minutes before
grinding. The coldness of the meat will make it easier to grind and not become
a gluey mess or get caught up inside the grinder. Secondly, when you are joining
the grinding apparatus to the main machine, make sure you can look inside the
opening and visually see the notches inside that need to align-up with the teeth
on the appendage piece. I use a flash light for this. It's important that they fit
together correctly or you won't have a correct fit or seal.
- It goes through most meat and bones without issue
- Does not process any kind of meat fibers at all; whole chunks and strands of skin and fibers will either slip past the coarse plate or get stuck in the medium/fine plates, requiring the grinder to be taken apart mid-job, wasting a ton of time and potentially leading to premature spoiling of the meat. I have experimented using cold meat or partially frozen meat to alleviate this to no avail
- The plunger is cheap plastic and will collapse if pushed. If the plastic yields, it will be much weaker in that area and possibly lead to cracking
I don't know how well this thing would work for making homemade sausages or whatever. Like I said it does bone fine, but be prepared to either remove as much skin as you can before putting it through. If I could purchase this again, for the money I would probably get a Tasin TS-108 for my needs.
