Im looking to buy one, any suggestions?
After burning up several smaller ones, I've had a 1 hp #22 from Cabela's for over 15 years & have used the heck out of it. They changed models a few years ago so can't speak for the new Carnivore models. BUT... the one I have was actually made by Weston & it appears that they are still selling the same grinder on the Weston website.
1/2 horse Cabelas carnivore grinder. It will grind the meat faster than you can feed it. One of the best purchases iv ever made.
What are you planning on doing with it?
I've got a little cheap one that works just fine for me to process a deer or two a year and the occasional sausage making in between. But if I was to do more than that, I'd want something bigger.
Mostly deer maybe pork sausage occasionally, I bit the bullet and bought the carnivore 3/4, maybe more than enough, but like a gun, better to have and not need...
Thanks for the input
I have the Weston #12 1 HP. It has ground everything I have ever thrown at it and I am pretty sure it has a lifetime warranty.
I know the thread is about electric grinders but this little unit is worth every dime of the $26 asking price.
i have one to, chuck up an electric drill to the end and go slowly. works like a charm.
I don't have one but I've seen my granny use one many a day to grind through several hogs worth of fresh sausage.
I got a new Kitchenaid mixer from Santa Claus and will be purchasing the grinder/stuffer attachment soon. That mixer motor is solid enough for what little grinding I'll be doing.
I have a vintage Oster Regency Kitchen Center with meat grinder attachment. I've fed a LOT of deer through it in the past few years w/o any issue. If you're new to grinding meat, the colder it is the better/easier it grinds. You can find these on Craigslist usually for cheap.
Cant go wrong with the carnivore.
This is my favorite one...
I bought a little Waring refurbished from Cabelas like 4 years ago and it’s still going strong. Paid like $39 for it. Also bought a slicer I’ve never even opened.
I've been using this one from BassPro for years now. Several deer per year. Including some tonight. Its made by LEM...
