Grinding Blades and Cutting Plates

The plates are of three different sizes allowing you to have different sizes of grinds. The largest is the wagon wheel grinding plate which produces relatively large pieces of meat. The ¼ inch cutting plate gives you moderately ground meat whereas the smallest is a 5/32 inch and gives you the finest grind. You can grind twice (using the same or different grinding plates) to have an even mixture and a better grind.
The grinder comes with matching plates and blades to give you high efficiency meat processing besides completing the task really fast. Because of the precise matching of the plates, the blades will not dull during grinding, instead they get sharper. Although the grinder should never be washed in the dishwasher, you can do that for the cutting blades if you want to clean it faster. The grinding plates should however not be put in a dishwasher because they are made of tempered steel. In case a replacement needs to be done or any maintenance practices, you don’t need to call a specialist because you can do them all by yourself.
The STX -3000-MF has 3 grinding speeds which you can select just by the press of a button. There is the high speed that is used for grinding most meat. The low speed is good for stuffing sausage. There is a Reverse button that is used when something gets stuck in the grinder. The unit will rotate the blades in the opposite direction and allow you withdraw it.
An important feature that lacks in some models is the cooling system. The STX -3000-MF Megaforce has an effective cooling system. It is a patented cowl induction type of a cooling system. This systems relieves your machine of the high temperature stress that comes from the heat that is generated during the grinding process. This induction cooler expels hot air and takes in cool air from the surrounding which in turn takes the heat and is later expelled out with it, leaving behind a cool machine. The cooler makes your machine last very long because extended periods of exposure to heat reduces the life of grinders to a great extent.
Sausage and Kubbe Stuffing Tubes
In case you want to prepare sausage, this grinder has the option for you. It has a sausage stuffing plate which allows easy and fast flow of sausage to the sausage casing. There are different sizes of stuffing tubes which you fit into an adapter then mount them to the grinder head and proceed with sausage stuffing. The sizes of the tubes are ½, ¾, and 5/8 inches. For those love to prepare kubbe, it is all made easy with this machine because there are kubbe tubes which you can use for stuffing.
Aluminum Grinding Head
The grinding head is a size 12 which is good for large loads. It is bigger than most other models which are size 8 or less. The parts of the grinding head are all made of cast aluminum. This gives it a shiny surface. However, they are not dishwasher safe and you have to hand wash with soap or detergent.
The machine has a maximum 3000 Watts motor. This provides the machines with enough power to grind large loads of meat. It rotes the blades fast and this gives your meat pieces a good grind. With the three blades, a motor with this power capability is very sufficient. On high speed, you can grind over 200 lbs. in an hour.
For the safety of the user and the machine itself, there is as circuit breaker that ensures high, destructive electric current does not reach the essential parts of the grinder. The circuit breaker cuts off the power flow completely if dangerous currents flow into the system. This prevents the losses that come with having to buy a whole new machine. Your house is also safe and anyone operating the grinder is well protected in cases of power surge.
