Hey all! In this busy routine life, it is difficult to carry out everything manually. One has to carry on with job, look after the house affairs and much more! In all this busy and hasty routine, cooking should be fun! So that you not only enjoy it, but it saves you time too!
Manual meat grinders come in handy when you have to grind meat in little quantity. It also helps you exercise your hands, arms and shoulders. But when it comes to larger quantities, an electric meat grinder is the best option. It not only saves you time, but effort too!
While choosing a best electric meat grinder for your kitchen, keep in mind a few things so that you choose the best product for you!
A products’ design seems very attractive to eyes but check whether:
- The machine has a plastic body so that is does not weigh much
- Should have rubber feet so that it stays on your shelf and you do not have to hold it to make it stay
Normally the electric grinders’ motor power varies.
- They range from 150 to 1400 Watts
- Grinders with motor power 300 to 500 watts are common
- 750 to 1000 Watt motor helps you grind 7 to 8 pounds of meat per minute
- You can get 2 to 3 pounds of meat ground with a 300 Watt motor
Decide which one you will choose keeping in mind the quantity of meat that you normally require ground.
Grinders with a reverse switch help you:
- In freeing any jams that occur during grinding and,
- Makes cleaning easier
So it will be handy if yours has one!
BLADES AND PLATES
Make sure that the cutting blades and plates are made of stainless steel and are very sharp. Stainless steel blades are long lasting and resistant to rust. Their sharpness will make the process quicker!
NUMBER OF PLATES OR MINCING SCREENS
Mincing screens are normally of three types:
- Coarse mincing screen
- Medium mincing screen
- Fine mincing screen
A grinder with all these accessories helps you grind meat in various ways. Check the number of plates different brands are offering.
Sausage funnels come in different diameters ranging from 10mm to 30mm normally. Look whether the one you are looking for has this accessory or not.
The cost you bear to purchase something, should give benefit not only in short run but in the long run too. These appliances usually come with one year warranty. Some parts like the electric motor may have a longer warranty period.
Other accessories like foot switch, patty maker, tenderizer, sanitary lubricant and cleaning brushes also come in handy if available.
