In this installment of Buy or Bust, we're talking about the Cabela's Carnivore 1/2 HP Commercial-Grade Meat Grinder. While the Cabela's Carnivore Commercial Grade Meat Grinders can be purchased in sizes up to 1-¾ HP, the ½ HP is plenty capable of taking on high capacity grinding jobs. The Carnivore's ½ HP induction motor is quiet but powerful and can grind 5-7 pounds of boneless meat per minute. Designed with a high-output air-cooled fan, unique air-cowl design, and ribbed motor cover optimize airflow, these features keep the grinder cool helping avoid overheating as it works through your meat pile. The forward/reverse auger resists binding and an innovative Carnivore Cool-Tek® Gel Ice Pak feature wraps around the head to keep the meat inside the grinder head cold to resist sticking and binding. The commercial-style stainless steel grinder-head ring nut makes removing grinder plates, blade and auger easy, while the patented auger-pull-handle tool makes removal of the auger easy. Included with the Cabela's Carnivore are 4.5mm and 10mm grinding plates for your choice of fine or coarse meat and the one-way fit stainless steel cutting knife ensures proper installation. The Carnivore weighs in at 44 pounds and meeting the size of this meat eating machine is a heavy-duty carry handle and extra-large nonslip feet. Also included with the ½ HP Carnivore is a sausage stuffing star, funnel flange, 3 sausage stuffing tubes, snack stick stuffing tube, plastic high speed stuffing auger stomper, and 1 Cool Tek Ice Pack. These accessories make it possible to dive into the delicious world of sausage and snacking sticks instead of limiting users strictly to grinding only.
