For consumers looking to move away from heavily processed produce and fast foods, electric meat grinders are a great tool to have in the kitchen. The main advantage of meat grinders is that they allow you to make your own blend of ground meats, or sausages, without any artificial preservatives, coloring, or fillers. Make your own style of turkey sausages, or even cube up some AAA prime rib to make juicy prime rib burgers.
Electric varieties will be much more expensive, but they offer greater convenience and speed. However, manual meat grinders won’t require as much maintenance, and less motors means less chance of frictional heat creating bacterial issues with the ground meat. Electric versions are more popular, but there will be some manual ones included. The horsepower of the motor determines the speed and torque of the grinder. Versatile applications is important as well, which might include extra blade types, sizes and different speed settings.
