Pro Restaurant Equipment Review
THIS IS A USED PRODUCT. ITEM HAS BEEN TESTED AND APPROVED FOR FUNCTIONALITY.
There may be minor cosmetic signs of use, but the item functions as intended.
American Eagle meat grinders are some of the best quality meat grinders we have seen, especially for the price. We like it... a lot! The machine is definitely geared more towards the food service industry in terms of its design. Everything is made of stainless steel so it's very shiny and attractive. It also means that it's easy to clean. When you pick up the grinder head, you can tell how hefty it is. It's certainly not the heaviest out there, but you can tell it is very durable. A standard forward reverse switch is a nice touch, but in our testing, the meat grinder whipped through a ton of meat without any hesitation, so we doubt you will really ever need to use the reverse mode. We ground about 5 lbs of meat in less than a minute, at that rate, this machine can easily handle even more than what American Eagle specifies! We did not have any turkey or chicken with bone to test with, but the owner's manual states that the machine should be able to handle small bones. So even though it's a commercial restaurant grinder, all of you pet owners out there that make pet food or hunters will easily appreciate the power in this grinder! The grinder motor itself is actually very quiet, which is a welcome change from some of the smaller household or even commercial grade grinders out there made by Weston or LEM. When we were using it, the motor made a low purring noise, even while we were feeding the meat through. It didn't appear to struggle at all. The machine also comes with a sausage stuffing tube which provides 3/4" output. When stuffing sausage, we recommend purchasing the optional 0mm or 3 hole plate to make the job easier. We followed the instructions in the manual to chill the meat before stuffing and everything worked wonderfully. American Eagle claims the rifled chamber and auger design allow the meat to pass through quickly to aid in stuffing sausage, and the machine certainly did a good job. Lastly, although the manufacturer suggests exercising caution when putting the grinder head parts in the dishwasher, we decided to test the feeder pan, auger, grinder plates, knife, and grinder head in a dishwasher, and everything came out wonderfully. We did not notice any rust spots forming or anything, but we did follow their suggestion to apply food grade silicone to the parts after washing.
