Excellent product! The tiny holes was what I was looking for, and when I first got it & saw how small the holes actually were, I was afraid the "food" wouldn't make it thru the holes without plugging. But when I tried it out, it worked just great! I highly recommend this item, and also recommend MeatProcessingProducts.com. The service was great & items were packed quite well. I highly recommend them, as well as these grinding plates.
