Empura meat grinders include both Manual and Powered (Electric) Grinders. These units are designed to make short work of any meat product you put in the hopper. Manual models require physically turning the hand crank to grind the meats. The electric models grind the meats placed in the hopper with powerful motorized grinder blades and they include anti-jamming and overload protection features. An Empura meat grinder is a heavy duty unit and the available models either mount securely to a table or countertop.
