What You Need To Know Before Purchasing A Good Meat Grinder For Deer
Dishes from chopped meat can be found in almost all cuisines of the world.
They go well with all kinds of side dishes, have high nutritional value, excellent taste and are easily absorbed by the body.
It is not difficult to prepare minced meat dishes in a professional or home kitchen – the main thing is that a good meat grinder is near.
Any kitchen can do nothing without a meat grinder! However, the name of this household appliance to modern electric models does not reflect all its capabilities.
An electric meat grinder is now not only able to turn meat into mincemeat but also helps to cook homemade sausage, a variety of purees, sauces, smoothly and beautifully chop vegetables or fruits for salad, mold curly cookies from the dough, grate cheese, grind ice for cocktails or nuts, squeeze citrus juice quickly.
But there are very respected companies that don’t hurry to equip their grinders with fashionable attachments.
For example, a meat grinder from Panasonic has generally no attachments, but the manufacturer pays attention to other points: power, performance, quality of the motor.
The assembly of many models of this brand is Japanese.

When you buy an electric meat grinder, be sure to specify what mode of operation it is designed for. If the engine does not have a cooling fan, the device can only work in periodic (intermittent) mode: every 10-15 minutes, it will be necessary to pause to cool the engine.
If you need a meat grinder to work continuously and withstand a long load, choose a device with an engine cooling system. A useful feature is a reverse.
In the case of winding the wires on the auger shaft or blocking the meat-cutting system with a solid product, you can turn the screw in the opposite direction at the touch of a lever and fix the problem without having to turn off the engine and disassemble the meat grinder.
Material and Attachments
The advantage of the metal, in this case, is that it does not stain from the juice of the products (as white plastic) and retains a presentable appearance for a long time.
Tricks of manufacturers: talking about the strength is ridiculous – you are not going to throw a meat grinder. But they say!
Uniqueness, again! And if the grinder is destined to fall, then the metal can be deformed.
The metal case is heavy – this is a minus.
So, how to choose: the ideal option is a plastic case and a stainless steel food tray.

Three Things To Know When Buying A Meat Grinder for Deer
- Power Source. If you just want to grind all the meat you can in as short of time possible, electric is the way to go.
- Versatility. If all you want to do is grind chili meat, a grinder with very few extras should meet your needs. But if you want to make sausage or do other things with your grinder, shop around until you find one that has all the attachments you want.
- Quantity. How many deer you kill each year, which determines how much meat you’ll need to grind, also plays an important role in your selection of the perfect grinder.
So, you have bought the meat grinder of your dream.
Here are some general recommendations for the operation of meat grinders.
When you operate a professional meat grinder, the following simple rules must be followed:
- Assemble the meat-cutting system correctly, otherwise, the meat-grinder will not work normally and may even fail. Do not overtighten the clamping ring, since in this case the knife will press too tightly to the grill and become too hot as a result of friction, but also do not twist it too weakly so that there is no gap between the surfaces of the knife and grill, which reduces the quality of chopping meat;
- Clean meat from tendons and cut into small pieces. Remember that conventional meat grinders are not intended for processing meat with bones and frozen foods. Do not use a meat grinder to make breadcrumbs: crumbs of stale bread quickly blunt the knives, and an undercooked crumb creates increased pressure in the cylinder, which can cause a knife or auger to break. To grind dry bread, we recommend buying a special machine;
- Feed the product to the auger with a pusher, but do not press too hard so as not to cause engine overload;
- Do not let the meat-grinding system work idle, as this leads to premature wear of the components. This is especially true for multi-knife systems, partial and full Unger.
- And one else advise: before buying a meat grinder, read customer reviews. You can get a lot of information that the seller will not tell about.
We hope that our recommendations will help you choose the right meat grinder and ensure its long uninterrupted operation.
