Summary: The whole my family uses this meat grinder for years. The best quality ever!!!! Now I am buying another two grinders for me and for my sister who is getting married. Definitely would recommend it.
Summary: I am very impressed with the grinder. I used it to grind venison and beef and did not have any problems with it and it worked quickly. I put in some tough pieces and it just kept grinding away. "MADE IN JAPAN" definitely well built and cut edges were sharp. Used it to fill natural casings for sausage and it worked well also. Nice to have something that actually works like it should.
Quieter Than Waring Pro, Interchangeable Parts is a Nice Bonus, but is Still Quite Loud

Summary: I disagree with the reviewers that state that this model is quiet. It's not. It's relatively quiet compared to other grinders of similar design. This is why this model was purchased to replace an extremely LOUD Waring Pro. Just because it is made in Japan does not automatically make it a higher quality product than a product made in China or elsewhere. To me this is a marketing trick. This replaced a Waring Pro.
