Every day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.
Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the STX-3000 Turboforce Meat Grinder. I spent a lot of time in 2017 deciding on what meat grinder I wanted to buy. I was pretty much in love with the Cabela’s Carnivore but had a real hard time paying 400-500 dollars for a grinder. Specifically since I use on heavily 2-3 times a year during hunting season, then only about 1-2 times a month for small amounts throughout the year.
So I looked at a lot of options but came down on the STX-3000 Turboforce Meat Grinder because I firmly believe it is the best value under 300 dollars on the market. First it is a size 12, in other words big, it has great capacity. It also has two speeds and a reverse setting, which at times can be important.
It comes with three blades, most only come with one and while such blades are a standard product in all grinders they usually cost 12-20 bucks a piece to replace. It is powerful, I put 20lbs of deer and pork though it in about 15 minutes and it worked flawlessly. This weekend I had a beef roast that I wasn’t thrilled with as a roast, so I picked up some pork an ground both with the wagon wheel for chili meat. It took longer to take it out than it did to put 6 lbs of meat though it.
After months of research, using several different grinders and finally buying and using this one I have found THE GRINDER I recommend. I can promise you that you will not be disappointed with this one.
On another note we made about 20 lbs of sausage with this grinder using the sausage stuffer attachment. Dorothy and I ended up getting pretty good at it, but it will be the last time I use a grinder, any grinder to stuff sausage. I will be adding a LEM 5 pound stuffer to our pantry soon. The grinder worked fine but likely it took 2-4 times as long as using a dedicated stuffer.
But for grinding you just can’t beat the STX-3000 Turboforce Meat Grinder unless you spend hundreds of dollars more, and then, you don’t beat it by that much. So if you need a grinder in your kitchen, I can’t recommend this highly neough.
P.S. – Here are a few videos I posted to facebook using this grinder.
Even though these videos are on facebook, you should be able to see them even if you don’t have a facebook account as they are publicly posted.
