    It has an anemic motor. I had one, and dumped it.

    Go to http://www.pleasanthillgrain.com/mea...ders_food.aspx and get the
    Maverick 5501 for $99. It's a superior machine, and comes with three standard #8
    grinding plates.

    Merry I asked about meat grinders here not very long ago and some suggested
    that the KitchenAid mixer attachment worked well enough unless you're going
    into a really serious production. Not nearly as pricey as a separate
    appliance and finding space to house it. Polly

    A repost, just as applicable in this case...

    From what I gather, there is now only one 110V non-commercial meat
    grinder/mincer on the American market which is not produced in
    China/Laogai: the made-in-Japan Panasonic MK-G20NR-W (available on
    Amazon).

    In the 220-240V category, there is a choice of producing countries. I
    like the made-in-Germany Braun Power Plus 1300 (also labelled G1300K).
    Some US distributors carry this and other such mincers, for example
    <http://www.newkunst.com/cat.asp?mCat=Small%20Appliance&sCat=Meat%20Grinder >.
    This is just an example, not a personal recommendation, as I do not know
    anything about this particular retailer. Otherwise, these mincers may
    have to be ordered from abroad.

    I have that Moulinex (2nd one listed at that cite), if it can be
    obtained at that price ($85) buy it, it's a wonderful grinder. It's
    made in France, I bought mine when on a vacation in Canada 20 years
    ago and paid more than $85. A few years ago I upgraded to a larger
    grinder, the Waring Pro... the larger the grinder the better the
    grind. Cabela's has a large selection of grinders to suit all needs.
    Don't even consider that toys r us kitchen aid stand mixer attachment,
    it'll ruin your expensive meat... better to put that $50 towards a
    real grinder. I don't think any home cook needs a commercial grinder
    but if you have the bucks, the space, and the strength to lift it go
    for it. The Waring Pro gives a high quality grind, and Cabela's has a
    great price:

    I have the attachment, but does not meet my needs...

    Thank you for your reply- just what I wanted to know! Guess I'll do a
    bit more research.

    What are your needs, then?

    I have the KA attachment in addition to my Maverick, and it works fine for
    grinding 1-3 lbs of meat.

    But it does not take a standard plate, so if you want a coarser grind (I use a
    1/2" grind for my some of my chilis), you're out of luck, or paying for custom
    work.

    I guess something a little heavier duty. I do at least 5 # at a time,
    and it stresses my KA too much. Plus, it has to be cut just right and
    at the right stage of frozenness? for it to work well. I'm sure that
    applies to other grinders, too.

    Not really. That Chinese #12 grinder that I linked last night will
    grind up an entire cold beef brisket in just a few minutes, and it
    doesn't have to be partially frozen, and you don't have to cut it up all
    that small first.

    That's a Waring MG800 model, which may have already been phased out.
    Cabela's has the cheaper 300W model, refurbed, for about $60. The
    newer Pro (no longer labeled Waring by Cabela) is now 500W and costs
    $229. I'd go for this MG800 at Amazon:

    http://tinyurl.com/33ezwt

    .....for $160 (free shipping). That's a good price, anymore, if
    they're what Shelly claims.

    The one at Amazon is the very same 450 watt machine sold at Cabela's
    for less money but you may need to pay shipping unless you live a
    reasonable distance from their store. Tha Amazon deal is good with
    free shipping. I bought mine about five years ago from Chef's
    Catalog, I paid $160 +shipping. It was meant as a gift for my
    daughter but she said she'd never use it so I used it and retired my
    Moulinex. If you can buy that Moulinex in Victor's post for $85 grab
    it, it's a size smaller than the Waring Pro but I think it's designed
    far better, the grinding head attaches much better and it has avery
    nice storage compartment for blades and plates... it's plenty powerful
    enough for the home kitchen. BTW, meat should be cold for grinding
    but never partially frozen, then it's no longer fresh meat... Isuppose
    that's okay if you'r egoing to freeze it anyway or you'r egoing to use
    it for chili, but for burgers you want fresh never frozen meat...
    freezing breaks the cells and the meal will lose a lot of moisture and
    make dry burgers. With either of these machines you don't need to put
    meat in the freezer to get a good grind, just keep everything cold for
    food safety... I place the grinding head and bowl in my freezer to
    chill.
