STX Magnum 1800W Series Electric Meat Grinder Review
A meat grinder is expected to do what it is supposed to do – grind meat. But some critical consumers want something more powerful, something that will just devour the meat for you and churn out meat that is, without a doubt, ground up. But where can you find such a monster that will work seamlessly in your kitchen countertop?
The STX Magnum 1800W Series Electric Meat Grinder is one such machine that claims to be a beast when it comes to grinding meat. What’s more is that it has a lot of other unique features that may just put other meat grinders to shame. Boasting of so much power, efficiency, and durability, could the STX Magnum 1800W Series Electric Meat Grinder be the machine for you?
Design – 4.8/5
The STX Magnum 1800W Series Electric Meat Grinder comes in a sleek and gorgeous stainless steel housing which not is not only good aesthetically, but also offers great protection. Perfect for any modern kitchen, as this machine looks quite futuristic, it can fit in well with your other appliances. Having only two buttons on one side, one button for the on and off and the other for reverse, there is no confusing as to which buttons to hit. The modern look of the on and off button is something of note as it resembles that of a computer – really chic.
The metal food tray is spacious enough to hold generous amounts of meat on it and is not at all an eye soar like the food tray of other grinders. Some consumers may find the feed tube of the meat grinder to be small, but that is a negligible drawback as the power the machine claims to have offsets the size of the feed tube.
Accessories – 5/5
This is where there STX Magnum 1800W Series Electric Meat Grinder really shines – the accessories. If you want a meat grinder that has tons of accessories to play with, this machine is the one for you.
This meat grinder comes with a polished cast aluminum size #12 grinding head, three tempered steel grinding plates, three stainless steel cutting blades, three sausage tubes and kubbe attachment, and last but certainly not the least, a tomato juicer attachment that comes with all of its accessories and components.
The three tempered steel grinding plates are of varying sizes: course, medium, and fine. With these three plates, you can choose how ground up your meat should be – a huge plus as some other brands only have two plates, while others want you to purchase the extras. The three stainless steel cutting blades match up with the grinding plates so there won’t be any problem with that. The sausage attachment allows you to make your very own sausages while the kubbe attachment will allow you to create Middle Eastern dishes perfectly by finely mincing meat.
What probably takes the STX Magnum 1800W Series Electric Meat Grinder over the top is its tomato juicer attachment which allows you to make fresh tomato juice for either drinking or maybe even pasta sauce.
Power – 5/5
The STX Magnum 1800W Series Electric Meat Grinder features 1800 Watt of peak output power, with anywhere between 800 and 1200 Watts of power while grinding meat which is a lot of power. When grinding meats such as chicken, this machine will eat it right up quickly and efficiently, without having to use the reverse button. You can do several pounds of pork or beef in just a couple of minutes; it will swallow it up easily and spew out ground meat.
You can grind around a hundred pounds of meat and the machine won’t show any signs of slowing down or giving out on you, and it can take you only around 20 minutes to do that. In fact, this meat grinder is so powerful it can handle chicken bones – not an easy feat. And it can grind all the meat up quietly too!
And with such a powerful motor (which is powerful enough to process even bones) you can surely grind up tough meats such as those from wild game.
What makes this machine even more impressive is the brand’s patented “Cowl Air Induction Cooling System.” What this proprietary technology does is cool off the motor, which means you won’t have to stop the machine for it to cool down as the cooling system does it for you while the meat grinder is operational. So you get to grind meat continuously, saving you time and effort.
Ease of Use – 5/5
The simple design of the buttons makes this meat grinder easy to operate. But not only that, cleanup is also a breeze as all you need to do is to hand wash the parts and you are all set. Take note that since the parts such as the grinding plates are made from hardened/tempered steel, you will need to hand wash them as the dishwasher is not an option. The other parts, such as the cutting blades, are made from stainless steel so they are safe to put in the dishwasher.
Verdict – 5/5
Design-wise, the modern look of the STX Magnum 1800W Series Electric Meat Grinder would make it fit well with your other appliances. When it comes to ease of use, you are sure to have a simple time cleaning and dealing with all of its different parts and accessories.
What is worth highlighting with this great meat grinder is its accessories and its power. For the price of around $200, this brand is totally worth it! You get more than enough accessories to get whichever size of ground meat that you want, you can make sausages and Middle Eastern-themed food, and as an added bonus, you can get to juice tomatoes with it.
The power behind the STX Magnum 1800W Series Electric Meat Grinder is something worth investing in. When you can grind different kinds of meat with ease, as well as include chicken bone, you are surely getting a monster of a machine. And with its patented cooling technology, you can use it for long periods of time. Think of the time and money you can save with this machine.
