This machine is a beast - in a good way! Just the head alone weighs 4 lbs. so it's beyond sturdy. I won't be grinding large quantities, but still look forward to using this for all my grinding needs - not just meat. I expect this will come in handy when I break out the major Holiday baking recipes - nuts, dates, etc. And I also look forward to buying inexpensive cuts of meat and grinding them myself to save even more.

(What's this)
I have wanted a high quality, medium duty meat grinder for many years, especially after grinding a hundred pounds of elk a few different years with an old Polish #32 hand crank grinder. That's more of a job than most people can imagine. This machine is a #8 throat grinder with a 1/2 Hp motor. This throat size will take 2" strips of meat all day long. The gears are metal, not plastic, and the unit is all stainless steel. At 35 lbs it needs the strong carry handle on top of the unit. LEM is a quality manufacturer up in Ohio. I bought a 20 lb beef sirloin butt today which I will defat completely and grind it into 97% lean burger. Then vacuum pack patties for the freezer. To me that's fun and economical work for more healthy eating. Check it out at Cabela's where it's a hundred bucks more than here at the Home Depot. Also this unit comes with 3 grinder plates, 3 sausage stuffer tubes, a meat plunger and 5yr warranty. I would like to see a reverse on this size machine, but only available on the huge 3/4 Hp and larger commercial units.

Wow big bite is right ground up the meat faster than I could put it down the tube never needed the pusher. I do not know what I was waiting for after using grandma's hand crank one for so long and bribing the kids to turn the crank. comes with 3 different steel plates I will say small and medium and also one to stuff sausage. Has a drawer underneath to hold them all so you can keep every with the machine and not have to hunt for them. Three different size tubes to stuff your casings. I must say even if your not going to make sausage you need this machine with all the ground meat recalls. Time to call your local butcher and grind your own. Trust me you'll never want to buy store bought ground meat again.

(What's this)
Long-time elk hunter here, and for my 20 years of hunting, my husband and I always used the heavy hand grinder my dear Mom gave me when I got my first animal (a pronghorn). I’ve resisted getting an electric grinder because I like to leave lots of connective tissue in my ground (I think it helps adhesion for burgers and sausage), and most of my friends with electric grinders burned them out within less than 5 years. So the fact that this grinder has a 5-year warranty speaks volumes compared to cheaper, less durable or powerful grinders. So far it works really well - even with connective tissue - and should last a long time, as long as I follow two cardinal rules: cut pieces to ~2” thick for feeding, and don’t get too aggressive with the pusher. I only use the pusher to get close to the blades but I do not actually force the meat through. The grinder comes with cutting plates for 3 sizes of grind. I typically use the coarsest one first and then re-grind anything that will become burger or sausage using a finer plate. (Note that LEM makes an excellent cylinder-style sausage stuffer, and it is superior to using the grinder to stuff casings - well worth having a separate dedicated tool.) I’m hopeful that this grinder will outlast all the cheaper ones - so far, so good! (I rated 5 stars overall but only 3 for energy efficiency because my hand grinder is still the most efficient - but not nearly as time-efficient!)

Wow, this machine is the real deal! Ground up the meat without a hiccup in record time. I have another smaller unit that takes forever and required a lot of attention This one just swallowed up those chunks ! It is indeed a heavy duty machine, easy as can be to clean. Has a nice handle to make it easy to transport and comes with 3 coarseness guides and three sausage stuffers of varying size. Built to last a lifetime!
