does anyone here have an electric meat grinder??? If so which brand?

I am thinking of ordering this one

Weston - 33 0201 W - Heavy Duty 575 watt Electric Meat Grinder | CSN Stores

do you think that will be good enough to grind up raw recipes and bone? it's 575 watts so I figured that would be strong enough? but I've never grinded bone before so no clue lol I did see it featured on a BARF website this was the cheapest one as some can run up to $500 + which I am not looking to spend that much.

I have no clue about meat grinders. :confused:

I just wanted to suggest doing a search for that model for reviews. That's what I always do when I'm looking to buy something.

The brands I have heard BARFERS recommend is the Tyson and the Northern Tool. Most people buy from onestopjerkyshop.com. I bet if you talked to some BARF people, you could get a great recommendation.

I did read reviews but none of them mention grinding bones.....just about all the hunting they did and meat they chopped up for venison sausages and burgers hahaha nothing about bone I'm thinking maybe I will have to feed bone seperate but wanted a second opinion as I buy the SMACK and it has grinded bone in it think it would be cheaper to get meat with bone in also if I proportion it properly

It says there is a warranty. Maybe you can just try it out? Also maybe look for some relation with the wattage and bone crushing?

I'm not being much help, maybe I should go back to my corner.. lol

Read the reviews on the Tasin. They are excellent. There are 14 reviews there and I just read the first few of them for people grinding for cats and they all recommended it. It powers right through the bones.

Ah ha, I found the one I was thinking of. It's now on sale for $125 and is sold to hunters and also BARF people. It says it can easily grind through chicken, rabbit, and (some) turkey bones. I have heard others say this is a good one.

Good luck with the grinder! Keep us posted. I'll be anxious to hear how it goes for you and that grinder will definitely pay for itself in just a few months of not having to buy the expensive pre-mades!

Maybe you could find it in Canada or on ebay? If I was going to get one, that's the one I'd get. :)

That is what I am looking for to buy it here! I will see if any canadian ebayers are selling them even if I buy on ebay from the us I can still get charged duty! I need to move over the boarder hahaha my parents are looking into moving to the states somewhere with a warmer climate they haven't decided where yet but I probably will go with them if I am done my RN course by then! If I get into the course that is *fingers crossed* way off topic sorta haha

ok so I contacted them and the total price with shipping will cost me $201.55 usd and they said that customs usually charges $0-$25 for duty fees. I am definitly going to buy it I think it will pay off in the end when my dogs don't die from arsenic or any other poisons in dog food!!! I am going to ask my oh to pay for half as a gift haha so I may have to wait a couple weeks before ordering but I am soooooooooo pumped to start making some delicious eats for my puppers and my new puppy will be fed raw from the womb til 15+ years very exciting!

I am returning all the unopened bags of kibble we have that is at least $100 to go towards the grinder woohoo
