Looking at meat grinders online thinking of going electric

The boyertown hand crank we have broke I have no clue how old it was as it was given to us by my grandmother.

The only manual one Iím interested in is the Weston yet now Iím thinking electric. Any suggestions on electric grinders would be appreciated price range $150 max thank you in advance.

2. I bought the meat grinder attachment for my KitchenAid mixer

And I'm quite happy with it.

3. This

If you own this machine, just get attachments. No need to buy another motor.

4. Absolutely.

We use ours quite a lot. Someday I'm going to attempt sausage, which the meat grinder has attachments for. Also the pasta maker gets a lot of use here, too.

We've had the mixer for about 15 years. They have gotten kind of expensive since then, but what hasn't?

8. The pasta maker is game changer

and I save so much money making my own that I end up buying expensive flour (00 and semolina) and still save money over buying it myself. Plus I can make better ravioli than I've ever gotten commercially.

6. I love my kitchen aid attachment



I do have to cut meat into strips and push down but itís worth the hassle. I know my ground chicken, Turkey & beef isnít contaminated.

And once in a while, I grind up marked down rib eye steaks for the most delicious gourmet burger.

And then whip up a batch of heart healthy crŤme puffs with the mixer.



My grinder is 15 yrs old & still working. Do drape a kitchen towel when grinding beef.

7. I still miss my old hand-cranked one

I got it from my mom. Somehow it disappeared during the divorce and move. No idea what happened to it, like a lot of things. I'm skeptical of a lot of electric things because we get power outages, besides which there is the storage factor and that old hand-cranked baby took very little room.

10. I've been using the Ninja

our daughter got us. I make sausage from pork loin. Not often, about 4 lbs each time, chopped in chunks, processed in several batches. The Ninja makes a nice texture. I don't use it for anything else, although she meant for us to use it for smoothies.

11. I had a non kitchen aid one in 1999. I strongly urge that you see what the pieces parts are

I found the one I had to be prone to jamming frequently. VERY FREQUENTLY.
