Meat Grinder: Speed Up Your Food Preparation
What Is Meat Grinder?
Meat grinders are kitchen appliances used to chop or grind meat, vegetables and other foods. The machine has a grinder head with sharp blades, which can be adjusted to different sizes of cuts. Different types of meat grinders include manual, electric and tabletop models.
How To Use A Meat Grinder?
Firstly, the meat is placed on the plate. The plate is a funnel-like attachment that feeds the meat into the grinder. The size of the plate will determine how much meat can be processed at one time.
The meat travels through an auger, which is a long screw-like piece that pushes it forward until it reaches the cutting plates.
The cutting plates are made up of sharp blades, which cut and grind the meat as it passes through them.
Once all of your cuts have been made, they will pass through a worm gear that moves them towards the discharge chute where they can be retrieved from your machine.
But there are a few things that operators need to pay attention to when the grinder is working. Because different methods of use will affect the thickness of the minced meat. The main factor that affects the thickness of minced meat is the speed of rotation of both parts. If you increase their speed, you get thinner slices; if you reduce them, they become thicker.
Tips For Choosing A Better Meat Grinder:
Material Of The Grinder：
The material of the meat grinder is not only about the quality, but also about whether it can be sterilized. Stainless steel is more common, because it does not rust easily, and it can be sterilized at high temperatures. The material of the meat grinder directly affects its durability and reliability. If you want to buy a commercial one, we recommend choosing stainless steel ones, because they are more durable than other materials. MARCHEF’s meat grinders are made of high-quality stainless steel. The blade is very sharp and not easily corroded.
Choose a More Powerful Motor：
The power of the motor determines how quickly and efficiently you can use your grinder. The motor’s power should be at least 600 watts if you intend to grind large pieces of meat. For many busy kitchens dealing with large amounts of meat, the MARCHEF with its powerful motor is a better choice. MARCHEF’s meat grinder has 4-pole motors, which means it can bring more power.
Capacity For The Machine:
The capacity refers to how much meat can be ground by one cycle of rotation; it is usually measured in kilograms. Generally speaking, the larger the capacity, the higher the price. For example, if you want to make sausages from 100 grams of pork belly per kilogram, then choose a 3-kilowatt model with a capacity of 300 grams per kilogram. Different restaurant kitchens will have different needs. MARCHEF has a wide variety of meat grinders for customers to choose from. There are Motor Speed 1400/rpm and 1480/rpm, etc.
Stationary And Fixed:
Under normal circumstances, the meat grinder is stable when it is working. If it tilts while turning at high speed, this poses a great safety threat to the operator. Therefore, when choosing a grinder, you should also pay attention to its stability. In this regard, MARCHEF also has its own considerations. It chooses to add rubber to the bottom support of the meat grinder to prevent the machine from being unstable during work.
Design Of The Body:
Meat, vegetables, etc. produce some juices during processing. If these juices flow into the meat grinder, it will affect the quality of the final product. Therefore, the design of a commercial meat grinder should be designed to prevent this leakage of juice. And also ensure that when processing, there is no leakage of oil or grease; In design, MARCHEF tries to be more compact. This can prevent the juice produced by the meat grinder from seeping into the inside of the machine.
