This video will show you how to assemble your Avantco MG series meat grinder, give you tips for use, and show you how to clean and maintain your meat grinder.

Assemble your meat grinder. Place T-link into enclosure. Tighten the locking screw. Insert screw pushing bar into T-link, rotating it, making sure it's all the way to the back. Insert four-leaf blade onto screw pushing bar, making sure the flat-side of the blade is facing out. Place the round knife on the end of the screw pushing bar, making sure the edges of the round knife are flush with the edges of the screw pushing bar. 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. Remove skin, bones, & silver skin from meat & cut into pieces the same size as the feeding hole. Use the included feeding bar to feed the meat into the grinder.

Thoroughly clean the machine body using a damp cleaning and sanitizing cloth. Make sure you lubricate oil seal of gear box through the screw hole. We recommend using our sanitary petrolgel lubricant. Every six months will work. To prevent blade damage, sharpen or replace the blade when needed. If you have trouble with smooth meat output, here are some troubleshooting steps. Make sure the handle cap is tight. Make sure the round knife is clean and not blocked and make sure the grinder blade is sharp. Here are some tips to get the most out of your Avantco meat grinder. To ensure meat stays at optimal food safe temps, it is always best to keep meat refrigerated until ready to use. Never use frozen meats in grinder. Before grinding any meat, submerge all pieces of equipment that will come in direct contact with the meat in ice water to thoroughly chill them or place them in the freezer. Place bowl of ice under your catch bowl to ensure ground meat stays cold during grinding. Do not overload your meat grinder! With their easy to use operation the Avantco MG Series meat grinders are the perfect choice for your small butcher shop, deli, or restaurant!
