    Would deserve SIX stars, August 9, 2010

    For me and for my wife, cooking is a kind of a hobby. Before buying a meat grinder, we analyzed several models. The first conclusion: the most important feature of a meat grinder is the engine power. This STX has a powerful 1,800 watts engine, more than enough to do all of the duties of a home kitchen (and maybe even of a small restaurant). Other meat grinders with smaller engines, such as 500W or 800W, will not fit for heavy duty (10 or more pounds at once), nor will be able to deal with some kinds of meat.
    After some research, we ordered it from Amazon. The delivery time was as promised. The machine was very well packed in a so protective box.
    Our first test of the product revealed that we made the right choice. Some points to highlight:
    1. Most parts are polished aluminum. So easy for cleaning, very nice appearance;
    2. The finishing is careful at every detail. It is clearly a good quality product;
    3. It works wonderfully. The powerful engine is far more than enough for regular meat;
    4. The ground meat texture results very similar to that from a supermarket grinder. I’ve seen other home meat grinders that produced a kind of a paste. This one, however, preserves the texture as it should be: perfect for hamburgers, tartar beef and so on;
    5. It is so easy to assemble/disassemble and to operate. Impossible to mistake;
    6. Despite we didn’t use it yet, the sausage kit will be very helpful.
    In short, this is a 5 stars product, no doubts about that.
    But we had a problem: the aluminum parts are NOT dishwasher safe. We didn’t notice that, and what went to the dishwasher was damaged: the shining was gone and those parts became some rough to touch. So, I contacted the seller (The Mercantile Station) and asked them the price of the replacing parts, since I would buy them. What a pleasant surprise: they promptly sent me an email asking for my address, and they kindly offered to send the parts for free (despite, I must stress, the damage was caused by me).
    What an elegant attitude! So, would Amazon allow it, the seller would deserve SIX stars.
    IMPORTANT NOTE: a few months after we bought our STX, the engine was improved to 2,000 watts, i.e, an increase of about 11%. I’d guess that, with this new and more powerful engine, the machine will able to perform an even heavier duty. My one is still working so fine, no complaints at all.
    AN ADDITIONAL NOTE AFTER ALMOST 2 YEARS OF USE: the machine is still perfect, as when it was new. No problems at all. I am really impressed with the superior quality. A great deal!

    Let’s make sense of this thread….., August 10, 2010

    11/15/10: In order to clarify some of the comments in this thread I am updating my original review. There was a different model substituted on Amazon.com for the STX TURBO 1800 watt for a very brief period over the summer. During that time all of the reviews for the 1800 watt model showed up on the 2000 watt model and that led to a little bit of confusion. I made it worse by trying to clarify that I did not buy the 2000 watt one. I have now eliminated all comments in this thread that I made in regards to that small fiasco.

    ORIGINAL REVIEW: I recently decided to start making homemade cat food and spent quite a while researching grinders that would be up to the task of handling chicken bones on a routine basis. Most of the information available online from folks who are making their own cat food says that they are either using Tasin or Northern Tool grinders. The Vet whose Web site had the recipe that I am using referenced the Northern Tool grinder having been identical to the Tasin at a lower cost until a recent production change caused that product to start having issues with bones in some cases so I was looking for a similar high-wattage grinder and found the STX Turbo 1800 Watt Model. The power level far exceeded any that were available at my local retailers as well as others available on Amazon. The price was also very competitive with the Northern Tool product.

    The change in my cats since the switch has been remarkable and I am now making food for numerous friends as well. Every Sunday I process 32-40 pounds of broilers through the STX Turbo 1800 Watt Model and it has worked like a charm for just over three months now. Once the majority of the meat has been removed from the birds and is ready to go through the coarse grind plate (the chunks fill 4-5 6-qt containers) the STX Turbo 1800 Watt will grind through that in less than 10 minutes if the meat is well chilled. The bones take longer because I double grind them through down to the 4-mm plate and unless the mixture is VERY cold is does not slide down the fill chute will on the second grind. The machine does not seem to bog down on the bones themselves, however. I have just had to learn to be responsive to the sound of the motor in order to know when to allow the blade time to catch up in order to achieve the fastest overall grinding speeds when processing the bones.

    I am the extremely happy owner of the STX Turbo 1800 Watt Model and my 5 cats (and 26 shelter/foster cats plus several friend’s cats) think that I am amazing because of the STX Turbo 1800 watt model!

    I had been using the meat grinder attachment on my KitchenAid mixer for years. I THOUGHT it was performing well for a home kitchen device. Sure, it took a long time, but isn’t that to be expected? Then it started overheating and it was time to replace it.

    I decided it was time to get a dedicated meat grinder since that was my favorite feature of the KitchenAid. I was looking for possibly an incremental upgrade (or at least no worse). Was I surprised….

    This thing takes about 1/10 the time to grind meat and it doesn’t turn the meat and fat to paste. The blades are heavy and sharp. The feeding tube is wide enough that you don’t have to do a lot of preparation just to get the meat in the grinder. It grinds so fast that the feeding tray is useless–I just could not put the meat in fast enough.

    It was nice to be able to replace many of the colors I had so that I could do the craft I enjoy the most.
    I can’t believe that craft stores no longer carry this product, so I was happy to have found it on amazon.

    I painted a kitchen window in a vineyard scene. This paint set allowed me to be creative, but I couldn’t manage a dark enough green (for my liking). The project turned out pretty well, regardless. I just kept adding coats and blending colors until I got the look I wanted. The quality of these paints and packaging of the set was top notch.

    I loved this. easy to use & it made beautiful stained art projects. just keep in mind the colors dry translucent – when you put them on they look opaque.
