This professional-grade tool, with stainless-steel prongs to break down tough meat fibers, provides controlled, uniform meat tenderizing. You can also use it to pierce meats before they're marinated so flavors penetrate deeply. It provides precise control when the tenderizer's handle is pushed down, so the prongs pass through the holes and into the meat. When you release downward pressure, the handle springs up again, poised to tenderize another section with the same smooth, uniform action. This durable, heavy-duty tool will last a lifetime. It's dishwasher-safe, too. Our Professional Meat Tenderizer will improve the texture and taste of poultry, fish and beef, while also hastening the marinating and cooking time.
