BEFORE FIRST USE:
Wash all parts with hot, soapy water. DO NOT wash in the dishwasher. Dry thoroughly.

GRINDING:
Chill the meat thoroughly before grinding to ensure minimal loss of juices. Before grinding, remove any skin, gristle and bone from the meat. Cut the meat into 1/2″ to 1″ cubes. Larger chunks will be more difficult to grind. Place meat chunks into the hopper and turn the handle clockwise to grind.
Should buildup occur when grinding larger quantities of meat, simply disassemble the grinder and wash in hot, soapy water. Reassemble and begin again.

CLEANING:
Wash all parts with hot, soapy water. DO NOT wash in the dishwasher. Dry thoroughly.
Dab a few drops of mineral oil to both ends of the screw before storing to prevent rusting.
Lightly coat the plates, threads and interior of the body with mineral oil before storing to keep lubricated and rust free. Store in a dry place.


 

Forming Sausages

Grind the chilled meat and collect into a mixing bowl.

Add the spices and other ingredients from your recipe to the ground meat and mix together well. Continue to keep the meat mixture refrigerated until you are ready to form the sausage.

Use pork casings for regular-sized sausage and lamb casings for smaller, breakfast sized sausages.
