Read the following summaries for a brief review of each grinder. Our list of best meat grinders under $50 is a similar list to our best manual meat grinders. That’s because the price of manual meat grinders are often affordable and fit within this price budget. Therefore, we will refer you to our manual meat grinder page for the grinders that make it to both these lists.
1. Bellemain Manual Meat Grinder
The Bellemain has a high rating but not that many reviews. It’s a small and cheap grinder that gets the job done but you won’t be using it for large batches of meat. We have already written a brief review of this grinder that you can read here.
2. Kitchen Basics 3-in-1 Meat Grinder
The Kitchen Basics is the best value for money in this category. You can use it not only to grind meat but also to make other types of foods. We have written a brief review of the Kitchen Basics grinder which you can read here.
3. Starfrit 093347 Manual Meat Grinder
This grinder with a robotic sounding name comes with only one grinder plate. It means that you can only grind meat to one certain size (thickness and texture). Even though there is only one plate, you still can use it to grind meat that can be used in all sorts of recipes, like beef and chicken. You will enjoy this grinder if you are looking for a simple and affordable meat grinder.
If you want to grind with different thickness and textures, then you will need more than one grinder plate. In that case, you won’t like the Starfrit 093347 and should look for a different brand. You can take a look at our in-depth review of the Starfrit 093347.
4. Norpro Meat Grinder
The Norpro is the best rated meat grinder under $50. It has the highest amount of five star reviews. It’s similar to the Kitchen Basics 3-in-1 since it also has three functions. We have written a brief review of the Norpro meat grinder that you can read here.
5. Weston #10 Manual Tinned Meat Grinder
The Weston #10 can grind 2-3 lbs of meat per minute. It’s a grinder that is built for ‘heavy duty’ use but not as powerful as an electric meat grinder. It comes with two grinder plates that you can use to grind a smooth texture or a coarse texture of meat. You can also make sausages by using the stuffing plate that comes with this model. It’s easy to use the grinder and it grinds meat well.
The grinder plate is not made from stainless steel, and some customers complain about it rusting easily. If you want a stainless steel meat grinder, then you should look at other options. You can read our full review of the Weston #10 grinder here for further information.
Are There Electric Meat Grinders Under $50?
Buying a meat grinder under $50 saves you money. There are good meat grinders in this price range that are reliable and get the job done. The downside is that there are no good electric meat grinders within this price range. But there is one option you can consider.
If you want the power of an electric meat grinder but with the price of a manual one, then you can shop for used or second-hand electric grinders. We find no electric grinders that are under $50, except when they are sold as used. If you have no issues using second-hand kitchen equipment and taking the time to shop around, then you can find a good deal on electric meat grinders.
That said, if you do want the power of an electric grinder, then we suggest you raise your budget and shop for the best meat grinders under $100. You will have a wide array of options from both manual and electric meat grinders when you shop in this price range.
