My intent is to grind 3/4 - 2 pounds of meat for pate. I have no intention of sausagemaking and so I'm eyeballing a #10 meat grinder. The ones made of tin plated cast iron cost just under $40 and the stainless ones around $89. Any knowledgeable recommendations would be welcome. And yes, for around $30 more, I can get something electric at Wally's.
