Attach the four-leaf handle cap to the T-link and tighten. Attach the stainless steel square-plate or food pan to the top of the T-link and you're ready to go.

    Truly a poor product. It isn't even as powerful and durable as a kitchen aid stand mixer with meat grinder attachment. Of course, webstaurant did resolve our unhappiness and our Globe is wonderful

    I bought my Avantco meat grinder at the Webstaurant store on line just like I bought many other items from them, like most of other products that I bought from this company it break as soon as the warranty ends, niether Webstaurant store or Avantco want to take responsibility and help to fix it, When ever you order something from Webstaurant store or Avantco you should know this products are not lasting for long. I am very unsatisfied.

    from Artburger llc Posted on

    Thank you for the review. We’re sorry this machine did not last for you and we really are quite apologetic that we could not help you in this matter. To help this grinder last to its full potential, we recommend regularly lubricating this unit.

    The MG12 makes processing meats unbelievably easy. I've never used a machine that was so easy to use. Calling this grinder "Heavy Duty" doesn't do it justice, the weight of the machine alone confirms that this is a commercial grinder. I will definitely be recommending this grinder to anyone looking for a serious meat grinder. As far as appliances go, this is the best purchase I've ever made.

    from Sherri A Posted on

    this grinder is a commercial grade grinder with plenty of power. my only complaint is that it ships with sausage stuffing funnels but you have to order the disc for it to be able to stuff into casings.should be included with the machine

    from robert merrow Posted on

    This is a great grinder. It has worked well for our charcuterie program, which is mostly terrines and sausages. The only small drawback is that it is extremely heavy.

    Posted on

    What a great asset!! Pays for its self the first time you do not have to buy a case of ground beef. I would recommend getting some spare Washers (MG12) to have on hand.

    excellent cooking equipment with warranty and good service of packing and protection at the time of transportation. We can recommend this company at the best prices of equipment for restaurants and cooking utensils. they guarantee excellent care transport

    from diaz Posted on

    This meat grinder is great for all types of meat and fish. it is perfect for a smaller operation, it cuts through sinue easily without overheating

    from Jack & Alice LLC. Posted on

    We love this grinder. It grinds as fast as you can feed it and does not seem to strain at all. Even deer meat does not have to have all the silver removed. I highly recommend this grinder.

    Posted on

    I purchased this grinder as an upgrade from a locally bought smaller unit that just couldn't keep up with deer processing duty. What an upgrade! We were finally able to use it once our schedule settled down and processed about 35lbs of meat in what seemed like a couple minutes time. Cleanup was easy and the included plate sizes were perfect for the pepparjack-wurst sausage that we like to make. Excited to see how it performs next season with hopefully putting it through more of a workout. It is easy to tell this unit was made for the long haul with how heavy it is and the beautiful construction of the components. Includes a couple spare parts as well.

    We purchased the Avantco MG12 grinder last year to replace a very old Hobart unit. I have been pleasantly surprised in how the Avantco keeps up with our grinding needs.

    Needed to get a good heavy duty meat grinder at a reasonable price. No need to look further this unit is a great unit for any small hunter or deli or food establishment that wants to grind there own meat .

    The item has been great for my business. We have used it for all types of events and the food stays warm for hours while traveling to customer locations.

    from Hell's BBQ Posted on

    This grinder has done a marvelous job for us. We mostly use it to convert the remnants of sliced brisket into chopped beef for sandwiches, but on a substantial scale. The grinder is very sturdy--the only complaint being that the input tray moves around some. That can be solved by clamping it to the carrying handle. I bought a grease tubes along with the grinder and add grease into the port before every use.

    from Wimberley Lions Posted on

    Take the work out of meat grinding with this superb grinder from avantco. Easy to maintain.

    Posted on

    There really is nothing like being able to use a meat grinder that you don't have to grind yourself. It is very easy to use and a very reasonable price.

    Posted on

    This is a great heavy duty meat grinder! It works best when you store all the lose parts in the freezer before hand to keep the meat as cold as possible when grinding!!
