Customer Reviews

Many customers are already using this Weston No. 4 Commercial Grinder and Sausage Stuffer but they are divided over its  pros and cons.

Some customers have complained that this machine is unable to grind chicken feet or legs properly. One of them has reported that each time he put the whole chicken into this grinder the feet kept getting stuck into it and if you do not remove them quickly they grind the machine to a halt.

Another customer reported that the same happens when chicken wings are put into the grinder; at one point, it had bent the auger. The customer service for this product is also very bad, especially if you  ask for a warranty fix or report damage in the product.

Other users reported that the machine can rust easily even if it is properly stored after clean-up. There are also reports that the cast metal feed tube and grinder have  cracks and other parts were even rusty when first assembled.

One customer also reported that this product does not work in cold temperatures and would trip eventually. Others also said it is not good for longer use; in some cases it lasted only  one year and stopped working  in the middle of a cutting operation.

On the other hand, many customers had immense praise for this product despite its many defects as they believe it is quite efficient. Most of them said that it can accomplish within 15 minutes what other grinders take 6 hours to achieve.

One of them reported he did not have any problem with cutting the chicken legs. Pet owners also rave about this product as they were able to make  quality raw food for their pets without having the problem of the machine breaking down in the process.

It can even cut down the hardest bones such as turkey necks and pork ribs without  any difficulty. Many also commend that this grinder can do more than 50 pounds at a time.

Some even said they were able to grind deer meat and wild hog meat which is known to be very hard to grind and cut into reasonable quantities.

One customer also commended the machine for being quiet and efficient. The sound, some say, is just like humming and it is not overbearing to the ears.

The grinder is also very good and provides good quality meats without having to use bread all the time to clean it up. They also said that the cleaning of this item is quite easy  and there are no leftovers inside the funnel when it is cleaned.

Residue is also not easily formed inside this system, guaranteeing safe meat every time you use it. Some also commended that the system is already coated to ensure that the blades and the gears would last for a very long time.

Some users also said that it is worth the money  spent on this machine  because it is very heavy duty despite the price and it is guaranteed to serve you well for a long time.

Even if it is only used for a relatively short time or once or twice a month, it is still a great piece of work that you guys must try out.

One good tip from users who do not have the counter space for this item is that this unit is quite heavy so better  prepare yourself before carrying this item for outdoor use. Each item might weigh around 30 pounds considering it is made of stainless steel.
