Useless almost to the point of comedy,
This review is from: Eddingtons Mincer Pro, White (Kitchen & Home)
When this product arrived, we found two broken-off pieces of clear plastic rattling around in the box. We considered sending it back, but since they weren't structural and wouldn't affect the operation of the mincer, we decided to chance it.
We needn't have worried.
The sucker pad would not stick to the worktop. On the second grind, turning the handle sent more meat back up the hopper than out of the end. Getting anything out of it at all required so much pressure on the "rammer" thing that the plastic started to make ominous cracking noises.
After 15 minutes we threw it straight in the bin (still with most of a steak inside) and ordered a takeaway which, I'm pleased to report, was delicious.

This is not an insightful review at all. Just inept use of the device. If you have to apply a lot of pressure, it is because the retaining ring is screwed too tightly causing too much friction between the cutting blades and mincing disc or the meat was not cut into appropriate size pieces. The fact that you describe something as the "rammer" thing indicates a heavy handed mental approach.
