What do you expect? This is a "home" grinder. It's a consumer model, light, easy to pull out, grind a few lbs of meat, and put away. Follow the directions and it'll last a while. I bought this because I've always wanted to start making my own sausage. I love bbqing and have recently gotten into cold smoking my own bacon and fish and the next logical step is sausage making. I didn't want to invest $100's into a grinder to use a few times a year so I got this. For $80, less with a 20% off coupon, you get a nice little machine that will do a decent job on a relatively small batch. I wouldn't recommend doing more than 5lbs at a time. Cut your pieces small and go slow and it does just fine. If you want a machine to pull out once in a great while, maybe a few times a year. This will last you forever with proper care. If you're processing alot of meat. Using it frequently to do medium sized batches, or try to do too fast, it just won't last. This machine isn't built to handle that kind of work. If that's what you're looking for plan on spending a good deal more and buy a heavy duty machine. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this grinder to anyone with the caveat that you understand it's limitations and have clear expectations of what you want to do with it. January 7, 2013
Piece of junk I used this grinder 2 times and the blade is so dull I can no longer use it. The 3rd and 4th time I tried to use it, it took me an hour to grind 1 lb of meat. Don't waste your money go get a commercial grade grinder. November 12, 2012
Waring Pro MG100 I received this unit for Christmas and did not have the opportunity to use it until last night. Last night i ground 4lb of wild pork and seasoned an additional 4 lbs for sausage using a recipe found in the instruction manual. I followed all of the manufactures recommendations in preparing the unit to be used for the first time including oiling the movable parts with vegetable oil. the unit functioned exceptionally well last night and was cleaned and dried per manufactures recommendation. this morning i assembled the unit and thought that I would be done with my sausage grind rather quickly and move on to making breakfast for my wife and I. the unit failed, after assembling the unit I turned it on, the unit did not sound good it sounded as if it was jammed or bound up and I had yet to apply any meat into the feeder head. I disassembled the unit checking each part looking for the problem and then reassembled, when I turned the unit on a second time it sill sounded as if it was bound up and was turning the feed screw at a very very slow rate of speed. I turned the unit off after about 5 seconds and the unit is done, the smell of a burnt motor is my confirmation. I am very disappointing that I was able to get less than 20 minutes use out of this unit but based on the reviews that I have read I intend to give it another chance and exchange it for the same brand and model and hopefully this problem is isolated to this unit.

Good choice for home use. I got one of this in 2008 and I do not regret at all, even though mine came with a connection issue in the main rotor. I fixed that by myself just taking off the nylon ring to give more room to the squared rotor bar going inside to attached pieces and having more grip. That's all. So far I can grind lean meat very quickly, about 3 pounds in 10 minutes or maybe less. By the way, you cannot use a home device continually for hours, otherwise you are going to burn it. Some reviews say that this unit burns, but that probably should be by mishandling the device. Here is my trick to get the job done quickly, just cut the meat in long thin strips, measure about a finger thin (not a thumb). Keep the strips as long as possible and you are going to be good. Forget about the little black socket for pulling the meet, that just add unnecessary pressure into the set. Keep the the strips thin and long and you will not need to use that socket, believe me. I figured out that recently by myself after years suffering with that socket. Other thoughts, this is a very good way for getting lean meat and having the calories low. Have in fun. February 13, 2012
