If you buy enough meat to keep your family in burger for a month, and knowing what's in it, "YES", I say it was worth it and probably will pay for itself within a year.

Barb, the primary reason why I bought one is because I grind for the dogs. I supplement their diet with raw food. I grind about once every 2 months in batches. It's much cheaper than buying prepackaged.

I've also grounded other meats for us but not nearly as often. It did pay for itself in about a year so it was a good investment for us.

I'm waiting for the big brown truck, suppose to bring the grinder today. Looking forward to using the workhorse.

I believe this week it's only $85
It is $99 with shipping but that is okay.

Excellent! Don't know if you are planning to grind bones but I've used it on chicken bones with no problem.

Disclaimer: Northern does not endorse or recommend grinding any kind of bones and it will void the warranty of the grinder. Even though they mention about feedbacks from those of us who do on their website.
