Have you ever wanted to make your own burgers, meatballs or sausages? If so, you need to get yourself a meat mincer. Mincing meat manually with a knife is not only a tiresome process, it’s also very messy and it takes some skill to be able to mince it evenly. It’s important to make sure it is even as different sizes will cook through at different times.
With a meat mincer, you simply drop your cuts of meat into it and out it comes minced. Depending on which grinder you get, you can use all kinds of things in them now from different types of joints and even frozen meats.
A few years ago these meat grinders were just for meat, however some also come with different attachments so you can chop vegetables. Its worth noting that you should always make sure they are fully clean after mincing meat, before using it for vegetables.
There are a number of different meat mincers on the market and you dont want to be wasting your money on a device that is just not powerful enough, or made from poor quality materials so it just doesn’t last.
In this section below, you will find a buyer’s guide. This guide will help highlight what you should look out for when buying a meat grinder.
You can get meat mincers that have a handle on them and you turn this to mince the meat, these are less expensive and are more often than not smaller. As mentioned they are manual so if you do plan to grind a decent amount of meat, you might want to consider an electric model.
A good quality electric meat mincer will have different cutting modes, all will have the typical on and off function but some of the best have a reverse function. This basically allows you to reverse the meat back through if it does get stuck, useful for when mincing big chunks of meat.
Generally the different modes will help you dice the meat to different thicknesses. Always start with the largest mincing settings and then go smaller. Do not go for the smallest mince setting, as this will overwork the machine and could cause it to break.
As you use your mincer, you will notice that it can start to get warm. This is because of the motor and the blades spinning very quickly, even more so if you are doing big batches. Metal parts do stay cooler for longer than plastic parts, in fact its often recommended to refrigerate or freeze the metal parts first as this will keep them cooler longer.
Plastic will not retain the heat, so if you do have a plastic meat mincer you will need to mince your meat in batches. After-all you do not want your raw meat to be getting warm.
It is important to look at the power, this is determined by the size of the motor. The power is going to determine what it is going to be able to mince. Now more often than not, every mincer will be strong enough to grind meats such as pork loin, lean beef, chicken breast, etc.
If you are looking to mince tougher cuts of meat like braising steak, you are going to want one with a bit more power. Its also worth considering getting a higher powered meat mincer anyway, as this will help your grinder last longer.
Your meat mincer is going to be mincing and grinding raw meat, so on and hygiene level you need to make sure that it is as easy to clean as possible. You want one that doesnt have small parts or too many areas that bits of meat could get stuck or even lost. If it is easy to take a part, then this will make it much easier to clean.
Its not just about hygiene though, if you don’t fully clean the machine out then you could jam up and cause the motor to overheat.
I would always recommend looking for a meat mincer that comes as part of a kit, that basically has a number of different accessories to allow you to mince the meat for different uses. Whether that is for making sausages, or meat for a ragu. The more attachments it does have, the more things you will be able to make with it.
