Butcher's Insider Secret: Equipped with 5 knife blades, one to match with each plate. A common mistake home meat processors make is using the same knife blade with each size plates. The plates have very small imperfections which will in turn cause nicks and grooves in the knives. If the same knife is used with the same plate, these grooves will match up with the plate and make for a smooth sharp cut. If knives are shared then they will acquire grooves that don't match with the plate being used and will not make good contact for a clean cut.

Aside from being incredibly convenient and economically advantageous, grinding game meat with a home grinder is also safer. Recently, millions of pounds of ground meat have been recalled due to potential health hazards such as E. coli contamination. Unsanitary food results in about 5,000 deaths each year. But, grinding the meat at home ensures that the meat stays fresh and sanitary. Additionally, commercial machines use such great force that the juice is squeezed right out of the meat, causing it to lose its flavor. After a successful hunt, this is the last thing that any hunter wants. Home grinders allow the meat to retain the juices, enhancing the game meat's flavor.
Each of the Chicago Food Machinery brand stainless steel meat grinders with exterior polish finish are created with the metal casting process called "sand casting." Frequently preferred over mold casting, sand casting offers a better final product not only in appearance (less "seams") but also in durability. Sand cast stainless steel products, like the Chicago Food Machinery manual meat grinders, are better able to withstand the rigors of shipping, frequent use, and offer an easier cleaning experience than cheaply manufactured competitors on the market today.
