Product Description
Shake up your cooking style and start preparing meat and poultry products in the home with the Breville VTP141 Meat Grinder. This innovative appliance enables you to efficiently grind all kinds of meat and poultry for a variety of everyday foods. Use this fresh mince to make your own barbeque staples such as hamburgers and sausages or winter warmers like stuffings and pie fillings. Give it centre stage with meat balls and meat loaf; grind it to a smooth paste for pâté and spread or just keep it thick and lumpy in dishes like lasagne and chilli con carne. Alternatively, ditch the meat and go veggie crushing nuts for vegetarian roasts. And you can season to your own requirements, adding herbs and spices to your personal taste and can monitor the amount of salt and fat that goes into your recipes. The meat grinder has a powerful 500 watt (W) motor and the heavy-duty tray, knob and blades are made from stainless steel, a material known for being less corrosive and more resistant to rusting than others and boasts antibacterial properties that keep it hygienic. The grind chute is detachable for easy cleaning and there is a reverse button to change the direction of the spiral. Choose the consistency you want with the three exchangeable stainless steel cutting blades, offering coarse, medium and fine grinding options. The kit also includes a food pusher to help insert the food into the grinder and a sausage stuffer for perfectly-formed sausages. The unit has non-slip feet for safety and comes with great recipes to get you inspired in the kitchen.

great for kids

Great for body disposal.

We have a 1400w kenwood with meat grinder attachment on it, and it makes it work hard so I'd question how much good 500W would be on this or how long it would last.

Any decent reviews?

Not sure what the point of a reverse is either, unless its prone to jamming (not the musical type either) or getting stuck down a dead end alley.

Does this actually make certain food types such as meatballs cheaper in the long run, or is buying it readymade from the supermarket better?

I think its a bit OTT for the home chef to be honest. I mean, they recommend you put mince in it, to change the consistency....

However whenever I make meatballs/burgers with mince from the supermarket, I never have any problems with the consistency at all. It just seems like an added expense. Though, undoubtably, someone will tell me otherwise.

Still it's a good price based on the deal alone, so its hot from me.

Depends on the cut and the price of chosen meat/ belly pork/ rusk / herbs etc really. You get what you pay for in a supermarket. Home made sausages with decent ingredients cost more than the better quality supermarket ones, but you know whats gone into them and you can change the recipe to what you prefer - i.e. add more or less flavour or make them whatever size you like. Meatballs are pretty much sausage mix without the casings. They can take a while to make and gets messy, so might not be to everyones taste. Good fun though and you can make a load and freeze them, or change recipes easily by adding different spic mixes (or go hardcore and make your own up). I dont think personally I save any money by doing it myself, but we eat less of them and have more peace of mind. Having a friend who worked in factory for a while making sausages, make us switch. BTW, we're not posh either so making your own isnt just for posh people.

I have had one of these for 5 years and they do the job just fine. The reverse is needed if you put meat in that has a bit too much stringy fat and it winds around the blade.

Is it better than buying meatballs in the supermarket ? yes it is as you can buy cheap cuts of beef and mince them at home without biting in to a meatball to find bits of bone. Until you make your own mince you wont know the difference but mince made with just cheap cuts of beef is fantastic. Std mince in supermarkets can contain lots of rubbish. one of the main ingredients in std micne is beef trim and heart.

As for sausages i find you cant buy a decent sausage these days. the cheap ones are well cheap and rubbish and the top of the range may contain good ingredients but for me the texture is all wrong and they contain grissle. People assume that a sausage with 90% pork is superior to one with 70% this is just not true. A good sausage should contain around 70% any more than this and you are making a burger. What matters is the quality of the ingredients.

I use pork shoulder and belly pork
1kg of pork
Added to this 5% spices
10% breadcrumbs
10% Water this is needed to offset the dryness added by the breadcrumbs. decent pork not the supermarket stuff does not contain a lot of water.

as you can see the % of meat is dropping quickly but the sausage is tasty and contains zero crap.


anyhow yes the mincer is worth having and making your own saugase is great fun and works out for me around £3.00 per 500g of sausage. add 5% bacon to your sausage meat to get that hotdog taste with the hotdog crap.
