Manufacturer Model #: MC5

A superb unit for domestic or light commercial meat processing, this compact electric meat grinder from Alfa International (model MC5) doesn't take up much room but it has a powerful .5-horsepower, 350-watt motor that will grind meat at a rate of up to three pounds per minute. The MC5 runs on standard 120V power and features both forward and reverse gears (this is a big help in clearing jams in the grinder mechanism); there is a safety overload protection breaker switch built-in. The gears of this unit are steel (rather than plastic, as you will find in many comparable grinders) and the grinder head itself is constructed of die-cast, heavy-duty aluminum. Purchase of the unit includes 3 grinder plates (5/16", 3/16" & 1/8") and three stuffer tubes for sausage. Easy to clean (hand washing is recommended) this grinder is E.T.L.-listed and will satisfy the most demanding home processor.

    This grinder makes a lot of noise when it grinds as if it's straining to grind the meat ! The ground meat is fine, but I'm wondering how long it will last ! It claims metal gears, but the weight of this is so light it doesn't feel like that to me ! I suspect plastic !

    Wish I could tell you its a wonderful item! It should be I just haven't even taken it out of the box yet :-( I do appreciate the weight of the unit, a far cry from the weight of the classic Hobart we've been using. Life got in the way of fun... Shipping was prompt, no issues so far.

    Read the instructions before using. I didn't and put all the metal parts in the dishwasher and they turned black. The instructions are specific and warn that chlorine will react with the metal . Great product otherwise but shame on me for bypassing the instructions. Derek is working on getting me new metal parts and I will gladly absorb the cost of replacement .
