Meat grinder blades are a key component of your meat grinding setup. They work together with the plate to cut and grind your meat. The blade has two or four cutting edges that sweep across the holes in the plate at sharp 90-degree angles to precisely cut your meat. The plate has multiple sizes of holes that allow you to choose the coarseness and texture of your meat.

The best meat grinder blades are made of stainless steel, which resists corrosion better than carbon steel. They’re often covered with a layer of oil to help prevent rusting as well. You’ll also want to look for a grinder that is easy to disassemble for quick and thorough cleaning. You’ll need to clean the plate, knife, and feed tube as well as any other meat-touching parts of the attachment.

A good meat grinder will also come with a cleaning brush and a small amount of mineral oil to keep your blades and plate in great condition. After you’re done using the grinder, you can apply a thin coat of oil to your blades and plates before storing them. This will prevent them from  and rusting while in storage.

A good meat grinder will be able to handle your toughest cuts of meat with ease. It will also be able to mince a large batch of meat in a short amount of time. It will have a larger feed tube so you can put more meat in at one time and make the process much faster.
