A professional quality meat grinder for home use/Brushed stainless steel housing/Heavy duty 150 watt motor/5 year warranty.
Engineered by Waring, this versatile meat grinder helps you ensure that the food you cook is as fresh as possible. Suitable for home use, the machine grinds beef for tacos, turkey for burgers, and pork for sausage, as well as non-meat items like vegetables and fruit. Powered by a 150-watt motor, the grinder has a durable die-cast metal hopper and brushed stainless-steel housing. It comes with three separate cutting plates to let you set the grind for the task at hand. Use the fine plate for baby food and hamburger, the medium plate for relishes and soup meat, and the coarse plate for vegetables or chunky ground. Operation of the grinder is simple, and the clearly marked on/off panel includes a reverse function that helps retrieve clogged food. The reverse toggle must be held down so you cannot accidentally leave it engaged. Waring also includes a small and a large sausage attachment for transferring blended meat and spices to sausage casings. Although the grinder may not have the hard-wearing qualities of all-metal models, the plastic used in its construction is both spare and durable. Waring includes a plastic food pusher and a recipe booklet, as well as a 5-year motor warranty and a 1-year warranty on the appliance. Cutting plates must be washed by hand. --Emily Bedard

I have been using a hand grinder for several months and although it made my arms look good, the job was really really tough and a lot of waste...due to the huge auger. This machine was a blessing; just be reasonable, and calm about using it, and the job will come out perfectly. Happy grinding and cheers to any and all who are out there honing and preseving the craft.
Other posters put down this unit, but if you use it as intended, it will make you happy.
In summary: people chill out, this ain't a 300-400 class grinder obviously its a 100 dollar unit, its not going to grind a 900 pound cow in an hour or chew up bones. For the price point you won't find a grinder that will perform any better, most are all 2 pounds a minute until you are ready to spend about 200 bucks. If you aren't able to justify the 200-300 dollars for the outfitter style units, then buy this grinder as its just fine for someone who isn't running a meat processing shop on the side. I suspect those who didn't like it had the blade in backwards perhaps? many first time grinders wouldn't know better than to leave it facing the auger, that makes it chop the meat? Just make sure your knife is facing the plate, that is the only way you are going to get it to work as designed.
After using it and grinding my deer meat for the season, I am sort of glad i didn't spend the other 150 on the bigger outfitter model. I never waited much on the grinder at all, just plopping in the chunks, and occasionally tapping it with the pusher. Just keep your chunks small, don't attempt to feed a huge chunk down the hatch, it isn't engineered for that, and cutting the meat into 1 inch chunks will allow you to trim more fat anyway.
But there is one major flaw with the machine. We disassembled it to see if it was an easy fix. The gears are all made of plastic, which is more or less fine except one gear. One plastic gear rotates with a metal drive gear. The metal drive gear that comes direct from the motor has sheared the teeth off the plastic gear it comes in contact with.
Our use in the restaurant wouldn't be much more than someone who makes a good amount of their own sausage or burgers for home.
