I spent 110 on this one and put everything in the dishwasher when I'm done. Pricey but worth the convenience of not having to hand wash everytime.

I really want one of these but but just had a thought, can't we just buy quality meat from the grocery store and get them to grind it? That way you get good quality ground meat and no added cost?

Side note. Do you just take extra meat you have (raw) and just grind it up and feed it to your cat. I want to try feeding raw food to my cat, but I always grew up with the raw chicken = salmonella, so I always wondered, do I need to cook it, or just shred the raw meat and give it to my cat. How do I know my cat won't get salmonella?

Not all grocery stores have butchers to grind the prepackaged meat they sell, and when they do, may not be on schedule at the time you shop. Longo's has butchers, but, they won't grind if the grinder has been cleaned for the day, they'll only do it if it's already going.

Having your own, allows you to mix cuts for custom results. I cut a top sirloin primal to roasts and trim the top layer of fat, cut cubes for stews and kebabs, and then combine the trimmed fat with the left over meat sirloin, and add a portion of chuck for a 80/20 mix of ground beef to my specific grind consistency. My cost for the ground beef is higher than buying pre-ground meat, but I am getting better ground beef. I also end up with a nicely trimmed cap to use for tacos, burritos or pulled beef sandwiches.

"Grey ooze" reports have stopped so it sounds like they finally fixed the tolerance issues on their grind plates. I've had 4 of these in the past and every single one had the grey ooze issue.
It had to do with the auger rubbing on the grind plate creating metal shavings mixing with the fat and creating a grey ooze.
If they fixed it, it was a pretty okay entry level grinder.

To be honest... you're not missing anything. Trying to stuff sausages through a grinder is a work in futility.
If you're gonna make sausage, buy a piston stuffer. I can stuff 10lbs of sausage by the time you stuff 3 links.

Specifically with this unit and not plastic in general, metal is more likely.
Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.

I usually pop them in the oven at 350F for about 15 mins to "disinfect" the top bacteria layer. Then you need to a a predetermined amount of skin and bones then vitamins, water, etc . PM me if you want the recipe. My cats are doing so much better on raw compared to dry kibbles.

After missing this deal yesterday, I was able to order it at the same price today! Thanks OP! Now I just need to return the one I ordered from Bed, Bath & Beyond for $52.
