Waring Pro MG800 Professional Meat Grinder, Brushed Stainless Steel. Professional quality meat grinder for homemade sausages, hamburger, and more Sturdy brushed stainless-steel housing with extra-large die-cast hopper.
Fresh ground sausages, pates, meats for chili, and fish for soups can all be prepared at home with this professional quality meat grinder. Solid and sturdy, the beautiful brushed stainless-steel housing should last a lifetime. An extra-large, die-cast hopper holds a generous amount of cubed or sliced meat, which is then fed into the grinder tube with a long plastic pusher. Three metal cutting plates are included: fine, for spreads, pates, hamburger, and baby food; medium, for soup-related textures; and coarse, for ground meat used in chili. Fish and vegetables can also be ground with the appliance. Stored inside the pusher are two sausage attachments, which allow meats and spices to be combined for thin or plump sausages (recipes for Cajun, Italian, venison and other sausages are included in the user guide). Covered by a five-year warranty, the 350-watt motor works effortlessly and operates with a simple on/off/reverse switch. With the hopper attached, the grinder measures 10 by 13-1/4 by 8 inches. All parts should be washed by hand. --Ann Bieri

When I want to make a batch of hamburger, I buy 15-20 pounds of beef, trim off the fat, gristle, and sinew before grinding. I add an appropriate amount of fat evenly to the meat chunks as I grind them. It's actually fun and goes so fast. I wrap and freeze the freshly ground beef in one pound packages. I also make my own bulk sausage, using the recipes included with the grinder. Delicious! As with the hamburger, when I am ready to make sausage, I buy 15 to 20 pounds of meat--pork, turkey, and/or chicken--and just follow the recipe. This fresh sausage is also wrapped and frozen in one pound packages.
The hopper handles a large amount of meat, and all I have to do is keep piling on the large chunks, guiding them into the feed tube. I have not had to use the "pusher" because the grinding screw easily pulls the meat down and through. The grinder has never bogged down or clogged up. I usually grind more than one type of meat and/or sausage in a session, so to clean out the grinder between products, I run saltine crackers through. Then I'm ready to continue with the next project! Speaking of crackers, this grinder also makes terrific cracker crumbs...And I have yet to try out all it's other capabilities, such as grinding fruit, nuts, and cheese.
The cutting plates will rust if one does not follow the instructions for cleaning and storing them. (After washing the plates, I dry them in a warm oven, oil them lightly with vegetable oil, and wrap them in waxed paper.) If the directions are followed, there will be no problem, and the grinder will be ready for the next big job...
This grinder is loud--I plug my ears with a bit of tissue, which takes care the noise--and it has one speed, which is not a problem--one speed is all it needs. I like the simplicity of this machine; there are no "bells and whistles" to figure out and break. It is a straight-forward, hard-working, no-nonsense appliance.
I enjoy using my grinder. It is powerful, fun to use, and economical. I buy quality meats on sale and in bulk, which saves me quite a bit of money. Also, I feel good about knowing EXACTLY what is in the ground meats/sausage I feed my family and friends, and how fresh it is! I can highly recommend this model for anyone who desires a dependable and powerful meat/food grinder.
It arrived well packaged in the mail today and I had 30 pounds of venison waiting for the grinder. I quickly read the directions and assembled the machine. Assembly and operation are very intuitive.
I have never owned another meat grinder before but I have been given "home ground" meat that looked like it had been smashed and mushed without actually grinding leaving a stringy consistency in the pan. Based on the reviews I read this machine would give me a good quality grind.
I am entirely pleased with the performance.
SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE NOTES
The auger does an amazing job of pulling the meat through once it comes in contact. There is no need to force the chunks down the chute unless they are too large to easily slide down.
The motor has power to spare. It took less than 15 minutes to grind 30 lbs of venison. This also included time I was taking to soak up some excess blood beforehand and to fiddle with the machine. It was over too fast. I was having fun!
The machine was not nearly as loud as other reviews had indicated. I was prepared to put in my earplugs but they were not necessary. My wife and I working side by side were able to communicate with ease while the machine was running.
The quality of the grind was excellent. The meat comes out ground and not "mushed and extruded" like some other grinders do.
I only used the medium grinding attachment but I think its great that they give me options for both a finer and a coarser grind as well as the capability to make sausage.
I was impressed with the overall quality of the machine. It appears to be well built and it comes apart easily for cleaning. Take-down and cleanup was completed in about five minutes. The oven was on because we were baking bread so I put in the carbon steel cutting head and plate to heat off any excess moisture. Reading the other reviews, I don't want to have any first hand experience with the rust I keep hearing about.
The box and packaging is well built and it all goes back in very well so I will be using the box it came in to keep it safe for storage between uses.
We tested the final product this evening in a venison spaghetti. It cooked up great and we were very pleased that we can now eat our venison in more ways.
