Are you a first-time buyer for a home-use meat grinder? Upgrading from a manual grinder? You can check out the Panasonic MK-G20 NR Meat Grinder. It is one of the more affordable meat grinders which is perfect for those who do not want to invest in something more expensive. Take a look at some of the features below and our review about how it functions and see if this is the grinder for you.
Features of the Panasonic MK-G20 NR Meat Grinder
The Panasonic MK-G20 Meat Grinder has the following notable features:
- An 180-watt motor with a built-in circuit breaker to prevent overheating and protects it when overloaded
- Metal parts that are built for heavy-duty use
- Stainless steel cutting plate
- It has a large metal hopper
- Three (3) Stainless Steel Cutting Plates: Fine, Medium and Coarse
- Sausage Attachment
- Plastic meat feeder that you can use to push down the meat into the auger
- Recipes to assist you in creating great-tasting meat dishes with the use of the grinder
All the parts of the machine are made of metal. The cutting plates are made of stainless steel and are very durable. The stainless steel plates are also protected from rusting.
The dimensions of the grinder are 12.2” height, 15.2” width and 6.5” inches depth. The grinder weighs 7.3 pounds which is very light, making it easy to move around the kitchen.
The grinder can go through about 1 kilogram (a little over 2 pounds) of meat per minute. The output rate is less than the bigger grinders such as the Weston #8 Meat Grinder which has a ½ horsepower motor. The motor power of the Panasonic MK-G20 is 180 watts and is less compared to the more heavy-duty grinders sold on the market. The output rate is respectable if you do not need to grind big batches of meat each time.
The MK-G20 comes with One (1) Year Limited Warranty
The grinder is easily disassembled for hand washing. Make sure to follow the instructions on the manual about product care so that you can prevent any of the parts from rusting.
This product has received a high rating. In fact, the majority of customers give this grinder a perfect score. Those who bought this for occasional use at home are happy with the performance of the machine.
- Powerful enough to use occasionally throughout the year.
- For those upgrading from a manual grinder, this machine will help you grind meat faster and more efficiently.
The grinder is not very effective in grinding bones. For those who need to grind bones, such as those who make fresh pet food, you can consider the Waring MG 855 Meat Grinder or the Sunmile SM G50. If you are just grinding meat without the bones, then you should not have a problem with this grinder.
This product is not for frequent use. Those who grind several batches of meat frequently should consider buying a more powerful grinder such as the LEM .75 HP Meat Grinder.
Great for those who just grind a relatively small amount of meat. If you just need a home grinder to be on standby and do not need a more powerful grinder, the Panasonic MK-G20 NR Meat Grinder is more than enough for your needs.
