Features of the Waring MG100 Electric Meat Grinder
The Waring MG100 Electric Meat Grinder has the following notable features:
- 150-watt motor
- Large die-cast hopper that can hold a lot of meat
- Reverse function to help shake down any meat that might clog the grinder
The MG105 comes with the following attachments:
- Three (3) cutting plates
- Sausage Attachments
- Food Pusher
- Recipe Booklet
The Waring MG100 is made out of durable materials. The hopper is made of die-cast metal while the body of the grinder is made of brushed stainless steel. Like its bigger brother, the MG105, the gears of the machine are made of plastic.
This plastic gear is where the quality of the Waring Meat Grinders are questioned, and doubt is cast on how durable the gears are. Naturally, plastic gears are more prone to break or strip compared to gears that are made out of metal.
The grinder’s dimensions are: 10.5 x 6.5 x 13.5 inches. It weighs 9.2 pounds. The grinder’s size is not too big, and it is just the right weight. As previously mentioned, the large die-cast hopper allows you to line up a bigger batch of meat that makes the process faster.
The MG105 has a one-year manufacturer warranty and a five-year limited warranty on the motor. Considering the mixed reviews this product is getting, it’s good to know that it has a warranty.
How Does it Work?
As with any grinder, be it electric or manual, we recommend that you read the user manual before assembling and operating.
Once you’ve assembled the grinder, plug it in and start loading the meat onto the hopper. Feed the meat in the tube and use the food pusher as necessary. If the grinder clogs up, use the reverse function to help dislodge the meat that got stuck.
It’s best to use hot water mixed with liquid soap to clean the parts of the grinder. Make sure that you can thoroughly scrub the parts that came into contact with raw meat.
The Waring MG100 Meat Grinder has received a pretty good response. There are some customers who disliked the product. We ran through the reviews and summarized the important points we think you should consider:
- Not really “professional” quality. Waring advertises this grinder to be a “Professional Meat Grinder.” Naturally, people will expect to get something that exudes such a quality. Sadly, a few users revealed that their MG100 grinders are no longer usable after a period of a year, even less for some. One user noted that if it is professional quality, it should at least last longer than a year considering that usage has been light.
- Gears break easily. This breaking is an off-shoot of the first point we mentioned. There are some users stating that after using it for a few times, the gears broke, and the grinder became unusable.
- Affordable. This grinder is one of the affordable options for electric grinders.
- More efficient than a manual grinder. Just add your budget and you’ll be able to purchase this electric grinder. You won’t have to hand-crank your way through a whole deer if you have this.
- Seemingly poor quality. The user comments alerted us to the risk that the grinder might not be as durable as it sounds. It would be a shame to have a “pro” grinder break down and become trash even before the one year mark has passed.
- Not all stainless steel. Not all parts of this grinder are made from stainless steel. The plates are not stainless steel and can rust quickly if proper care is not given.
Should You Buy?
We would recommend this grinder for those who do not grind frequently. Given the comments on durability, this grinder might fair better in a household that only grinds a few pounds of meat now and then. If you grind big batches of meat regularly, this might not be the machine for you. We recommend that you stretch your budget further and take a look at the Waring MG 855.
