    Default Cabela's Manual Grinders

    Does anyone have any experience with Cabela's manual grinders? If so, good product? Any other manual grinders out there you'd recommend?

    I have a #32 grinder. Have had it for 10 years or so and have put a lot of meat through it (well over 500 lbs - all of which was double ground). Still works as good as the day I bought it. Good product. Not as fast as the bigger electric grinders, but I got it pretty cheap and each year my cost / lb of burger gets lower and lower!

    Default Another option

    We have been using the Kithen Aide mixer (350 watt I believe) with the grinder attachment for over 10 years now. Works adequately for small volume.
    Looking to upgrade to the Cabelas 1HP sometime though and have a dedicated machine as the Kitchen Aide works, but is not the fastest. However, it's alot better than hand grinding!
    They also make a sausage stuffer attachment FYI that is decent.

    I use a 1 horse electric grinder. I put about 1000lbs through it every season and haven't had a problem. I guess it depends on what you want to use one for. I make sausage and burger for alot of people and it works great. If you plan on making sausage I HIGHLY recommend getting a verticle stuffer. The time that it will save you pays for itself in almost one use.
