This review is from: Bonzza British SAUSAGE MAKING KIT with Meat Mincer Grinder Stuffer, Sausage Skins, Seasonings & Yeastless Rusk in a Boxed Set makes up to 8lbs of virtually SALT FREE sausages Cumberland, Olde English, Plain with added meat. Now with Pasta Making attachments to make your own Macaroni, Tagliatelle and Spaghetti. An Ideal Father's Day or Birthday Gift. (Kitchen & Home)
Early in our married life (almost 40 years ago) my wife and I bought a metal hand mincer. It was not a success, it constantly had to be taken apart to free the blades from chewed up meat detritus. So, having got fed up with commercially available sausages, it was with some trepidation that we ordered this kit. Hoewever we were very suprised; perhaps the quality of meat has improved. The grinder works very well, plastic it might be but it is easy to use, functions very well and so easy to clean. I have made two lots of sausages and they have turned out very well. The ingredients provided give good flavour and the recipe provided is simple to follow. However the instructions for use of the equipment could have been clearer. For example how much to fill the sausage skin to allow for linking. I have also made some excellent minced beef; I do not like shop bought mince but this is good. The only disappointment is the lack of alternate recipes for sausages. The supplies work well and allow you to experiment but I would suggest that twice the amount of collagen tubing is needed if you are going to use all the ingredients. It is tedious and time consuming to mince a full kilo of pork and then stuff the sausages, which really is a two person job as the hopper needs filling and pressing down constantly, it can be done with one pair of hands but does take more time. Had I known how good modern mincers are I would have bought a motorised one, but only to save time as I cannot really fault this mincer.

I am now going to see if I can produce home made pasta as the mincer comes with pasta making attachments.
