Grinding Fresh Beef, Homemade Sausage, Homemade Hotdogs, Making Sausage Patties
I bought this machine for occasional home use to grind my own beef, pork, chicken, and turkey. These days you don't know WHAT is going into our food products and I figured this was one way to feed my family a better product. Since buying it I have been finding reasons to use it and have had a lot of fun with it. I have made homemade sausage and sausage patties (without the ever present grissle found in store-bought sausage), and intend to dabble in homemade hotdogs next.
I found the LEM #5 very easy to set up and use even right out of the box. I ran right out and bought a chuck roast to turn into ground beef the day I got this machine. I can feed 1 inch strips of meat into it and it pulls it through and grinds it up without hesitation. The "big bite" technology aids in pulling the meat through without ever needing the tamper. All the parts, external AND internal, are made of stainless steel. The feed tray is plenty big and also made of stainless. It operates quietly and with plenty of power.
I really cannot find ANY things I don't like about this machine. I shopped around on line and got it for a great price with free shipping. I looked at other home-use grinders but none of them came close to the quality of this machine.
