I try to wrap anything for the freezer in a single layer. Steaks are wrapped side by side rather than one on top of the other. Ground beef is wrapped in half-pound packages and pressed flat on a half sheet pan for freezing.

Wherever it makes a difference, Individual packages are frozen flat on a half sheet pan so they have flat surfaces. While this does facilitate stacking in the freezer, I do it so they will defrost quicker. Flat packages present more surface area to the counter top which is a great defrosting aid.

Congrat's on the new LEM.

I've had mine for years and a dedicated grinder is much easier then the expanded use mixer.

LEM. is a good company and has reasonable customer service should the need arise.

I see lot's of tasty ground treats in your future.

If you're into ground Turkey now is a great time of year to pick it up cheap.

Now if you'll excuse me it's time for me to break out my LEM and go to work on the 20lbs. of chuck I just picked up for $3.99 a lb.

Nice purchase for sure, lets see a picture of that baby in action...

I use the #12 hub on my stand mixer for a grinder, it works well, sausage, even a make shift past extruder {not great for italian pasta but some noodles do will with the 1/8" grinder and no blade...

I have this grinder and love it. A little heavy, but that is the quality.
