Default Meat grinder help

I am considering purchasing a meat grinder for the purpose of processing my own grind, so I am soliciting your help. Any suggestions?
  • I generally prefer to keep as much meat as possible in cuts, but I hate to be waist-full and grind is so handy for a number of purposes that I do keep some grind; but its not like I'll be grinding a whole deer, elk or antelope.
  • I would prefer something that doesn't take up to much storage space when cleaned and packed away.
  • I would like something that cleans up well.
  • I don't think I mind grinding manually, but I have never done it before so maybe I am being foolish.
  • I don't mind spending a few extra bucks and buying it once. I hate going cheap to find out that I need a better unit (I've done that too often).
  • Generally speaking I'm not much of a foodie but should I consider something that is also adaptable to processing sausage?

Thank you
Steve G

We bought one of these last year, its worked well... although its noisy, but I think all grinders are pretty noisy.

Does the wife happen to have a Kitchenaid mixer...their grinder attachment kit is a nice way to go if you're grinding for one meal at a time. You can make sausage with them to.

I like the price and the reviews are overwhelmingly positive. The negatives look legit too though. Thanks DallanC

Yes she does. But she has an irrational fear of game meat (Doesn't eat it at all, doesn't even like to see it on the grill next to her beef), so I find it easier to just avoid that whole mess. Its funny, she won't touch my game mammals, but she'll sure touch my game fish.

We bought this one:

I ground trim from 2 deer, and made about 50 lbs of summer sausage, both deer and waterfowl, and I have been happy with it. Like Dallan's, this one is loud, but it works so far.

Your poor wife has it all backwards. It's the beef she ought to be wary of.

Academy sells this grinder also. I have seen it on clearance for around $60. I wanted a review, so thanks.
