Modern people are now more conscious about what they are eating and filling their stomach with. They have moved from buying grounded meat from the local market to getting a smart meat grinder to do the grinding on their own. There are two categories of meat grinders, such as, manual and electric. Chances are that you have an electric version because electric ones offer better performance and functionality. Now, all you need is to learn how to use an electric meat grinder.
Maybe, you already know how, but for the ultimate safety, you should know about the job more precisely. Here is a step by step guide for you.
Step 1 : Know About Your Grinder
The first step is all about knowing your machine and its parts. An electric meat grinder is powered by a motor and includes a pusher, screw, hopper, blade, plate, and cover. All the parts are necessary for grinding.
Step 2 : Get Familiar with the Operation
Before you start, learn how to assemble the meat properly. Take the head and line it with the motor assembly. To attach it, press the head in and turn it clockwise. Now, put the hopper over the head. After the assembly is done, you can start using it.
Step 3 : Dealing with the Meat
The meat should be cut into cubes, not too large or small and keep the meat in the hopper. As you put the meat in the hopper, it is time to start the motor and push the cut meat through the head by a pusher.
Step 4 : Choosing the Plate for Desired Meat Cuts
You will be able to see ground meat coming through the plates. The auger and the blade inside the head cuts and grinds the meat. In general, the plates are of three kinds and provide three types of ground meat, like- fine, medium and coarse. You can choose any three of the plate as per your requirement.
Finally, you will have ground meat on your plate. A meat grinder also comes with sausage stuffing funnel that helps you make sausage out of meat. So, if you ever wish to eat sausage or do not have enough time to make your breakfast, you can make sausage by putting minimal effort.
