Contrary to popular opinion, there are some appliances that you can use for two different functions aside from their original purpose. Meat grinders, for example, can be transformed into sausage makers, mincers and many other things.

However, you need to be familiar with the available attachments you can use with your meat grinder in case it does not come with attachments or only performs  one major function. You also have to check if the attachment is suitable for your meat grinder, so be careful.

Here we list some of the attachments that are available in the market.
