Opinions needed on a grinder - Page 2

post #21 of 32

sounds like something else, maybe the blade is in backwards? thats what it sounds kinda like to me the flat part needs to be up against the plate. might sound dumb but i think i had mine in wrong the first time and its easy to do.

Try another one first im telling you mine has been good and also you want to almost have the meat frozen because it grinds much nicer and how big of pieces did you cut it up the pork in? its not a heavy duty grinder that can do as big of pieces as an expensive one so you have to cut the meat pretty small and dont force it in let the grinder do the work you can hear when it is straining and dont over due it.

I tried the blade the other way around the second time when I used the coarse plate and it didn't seem to make a difference. I cut the pork butt into small strips to make sure it wouldn't bog the grinder down either. I kind of planned on this happening with a cheaper unit so I'm not upset. I can hang onto the Kitchen Aid as long as I need to so there's no worries.

My guess the blade is in backwards.  It should be put on the auger with the flat surface facing outward, next add the plate then the big retaining screw/ring. Does your motor have a reverse switch? maybe you are running in reverse?

250 watts is pretty anemic, the maximun power that can be safely used on a typical household 120v 15 amp receptical would be 1800 watts

Well kitchen receptacles are 20 amp and 250 watts is only  2 amps so I dont get your point? Yes its not a beast of a grinder that's why its about 40 bucks, but it does the job.

My point was that its a very low powered grinder, It might bog down even if assembled properly , but fed too fast.

I agree with that

My husband and I just bought this grinder and it went through our whitetail hamburger gind 90# of venison and 10# of suet with no trouble at all and was very fast. In addition we ground 80# or so of mule deer meat with 10# of pork shoulder for sausage. Half of that became breakfast sausage and half we seasoned and stuffed in to hog casings for kielbasa. There was no heat buildup at all that we could feed from the housing. We bought this grinder to save the motor of the kitchenaid stand mixer for which we have the grinding and stuffing attachments. The Kitchenaid was a lot slower. The Super 3000 and the Kichenaid tubes both hold about the same length of casings and the setup for the stuffing attachments were not obviously clear, but we got it and the 3000 made very quick work of it. We would have been twice as long with the Kitchenaid.

A few years ago I bought a Torrey 3/4 horse. Even though it costed me  a few grand, its the best investment I made. Cabin fever hit it right on..IMO
