I was going to suggest Lem products also.

I just got there model # 1113 grinder and am really happy with it.

It's 575 watts. That converts to 3/4 horsepower if I did my calculations correctly. More then enough power for the home kitchen and it made quick work of the 6 pounds of chuck roast,3 pounds of turkey,and 10 pounds of pork shoulder I ground up playing with my new toy.

It's easy to clean and doesn't take up much storage space. About the size of a toaster. It came with a sausage stuffer tube and 3 plates. A sausage stuffer plate. A 5/16" and 3/16" plate. I also ordered a 1/8" plate for a fine grind.

The unit sells for $110.00 and the extra stainless plate was $15.00. I bought a "Refurbished" one and it was $ 88.00. Well worth it because it is a brand new unit that someone simply didn't want so they sent it back.

Lem also has a bunch of products to go along with processing meat so you may want to check them out for that reason.

Don't know if I can post a link since I'm new so I'll do it the old fashion way. Double U Double U Double U dot lemproducts dot com.

And being new I'd like to say Howdy to all the folks here. I'm a quite kind of guy and I'll mostly lurk. (Yeah I'm one of those) But do be prepared for the smarta$$ comment every now and then.

Well, hello, welcome, and pull up a chair, Zagut! No need to lurk to make smarta$$ comments!

Really good info, BTW.

Thanks for the welcome Dawgluver.

I've pulled up a chair and enjoy what I see. But that's my nature. I find I learn by observation. I'll comment if I feel it might add to the discussion. otherwise I sit back and observe.

Seems like a good group of folks here but us hermits take things slow.

And I need to be careful talking to someone names Dawgluver because my 2 sweethearts who are of the species might not understand.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day and keep on cooking.

Am thinking Dawgluvers and Catluvers are probably a 50/50 split here on DC. There's also a fair number of Snakeluvers and Chickenluvers! We do love our pets!

I love dogs. I just don't want the responsability involved in dog ownership.

I had a snake once. A Boa. Never did like/trust him.

I do love Chickens as long as they're not undercooked.

I'm happy with Lucy & Ethel. No mice and they can keep themselfs entertained.

Hope you're happy with the grinder you ordered. Let us know how it works out for ya.

You haven't met Harriet and Myrtle--two very classy chickens. They travel in a 1998 Volvo and dress in couture clothing. And, lay extremely tasty eggs.

I used to think so, too, but I have a small kitchen with limited storage, and already have an N50, so it is my best option. I have gotten used to it, and it is convenient to grind right into a mixer bowl and add seasoning at my first grind and mix before a second grind. I'm using on of the older, all metal attachments.

It's more the time setting it up and cleaning than than it is worth for such a small amount. That and I have to set up a space for the mixer on the stove and work in very limited space. Maybe if I had a nice kitchen where I could keep my mixer on the counter it would be easier to tolerate.

I know what you mean. I have a small kitchen with very little cubboard or pantry space, but I found a nice little cart that holds my mixer and attachments, and has wheels, so I can move it if it's in the way.

Harriet and Myrtle sound like my kind of chicks.

Lucy & Ethel go to the vet in a 86 Volvo but I'm afraid to say that they go naked.

I like chicken dressing but I'm not so sure about dressed chickens.

But who can argue with tasty eggs?
