The Best Choice Products Meat Grinder is a modest yet potent meat grinder that achieves commercial commercial-grade power while retaining consumer-preferred pricing. Its defining points include a high-output motor and a wide feeding tube, allowing it to grind impressive amounts of food in a short span. Its powerful motor cuts through both dense meat and soft bone, thanks largely to its multiple speed settings and large cutting blade. For these reasons, it earns our Top Ten Reviews Bronze Award.

This home meat grinder is rated for 2000 watts, or 2.6 horsepower, which is more than quadruple the output of many other grinders. Considering the low price point, its output of 3 pounds of meat per minute makes this device a good value. It can achieve the most output through its highest speed setting, though using the low setting is recommended as this ensures a more thorough grind. Though this is among the least expensive grinders in our evaluation, it can still handle a wide range of foods, including vegetables, soft bones and large meat chunks.

This stainless steel meat grinder's main strength is its performance, and its main weakness is definitely safety. It offers only the most basic levels of safety in its design. Its feeding tube, a wide 2 inches in diameter and 4 inches in length, has a slight taper to help prevent accidental injuries like trying to shove food in with your fingers. In addition, when disassembling the grinder, the last thing you want to have happen is accidentally turning on the device while disassembling. The device is designed with multiple buttons that are slightly recessed to help avoid such accidents.

The device does not come with any type of UL rating to indicate it adheres to specific manufacturing standards. This does not instill confidence in the quality of the machine. If parts break down during the warranty period, it may take weeks for a replacement part to arrive. Additional safety features like a built-in circuit breaker would protect its motor and gears against power surges when a jam is encountered, yet this feature isn’t included. If you want a meat grinder with a circuit breaker, check out the STX Turboforce 3000.

This food grinder uses one of the largest cutting plates out of all the products we evaluated. It uses a #12 grinding head, which means each cutting plate measures 2 3/4 inches for higher grinding output. It can achieve a variety of grinds through the use of its three cutting plates and kibbe attachment, though it lacks any form of sausage feeding tube.

From a warranty standpoint, this electric meat grinder comes with the basic protection you’d expect from a kitchen appliance. Both the motor and its removable parts are protected with a one-year warranty, with replacement parts available for separate purchase through the manufacturer. However, consumers often complain about how slow the manufacturer is to respond to such inquiries. In addition, the company is located internationally and parts may take upward of a month to arrive.

The Best Choice Products Meat Grinder touts a powerful motor even while under load, which means it can handle most any kind of meat you’ll want to grind. Though it lacks any sausage stuffing tubes, it has an impressive grinding output through its sizable feed tube. It's missing important safety features such as a built-in circuit breaker, and it does not have responsive customer support. Yet when it comes to raw power and high grinding output, this unit is among the best for home users and hunters.
