Odd grinder

Post by Butterbean » Sun Aug 25, 2019 21:30

A friend picked up a bunch of old grinders and knowing I'm into that type stuff he gave me this one. I've never seen one like this before and only took it because it is unique in that it doesn't use a knife. Instead, the worm pushes the ingredients out to the plate and the plate turns and does the "cutting". I don't see how this would work too well on meats so I'm assuming it is used for other things. Has anyone ever seen anything like this before?

That was the way they were back in the day.
We still have one that we use for grinding toast,onions and celery for Thanksgiving dressing/stuffing. It also works well for grinding liver for pate', but never tried it with raw meat. I'd bet it would work ok if the meat was cubed small and semi frozen.

Thanks. I've never seen one like it and was curious. I'd think with meat it might work you pretty hard but can see where it might shine with pate's or vegies.

The mold should grow fine in normal drying conditions. Whats your humidity and temp?
