Using a meat mincer ensures consistency in the size and texture of your minced meat.

This is especially important for dishes such as burgers or meatballs where the texture of the meat is important.

How do you use a beef mincer?
The mincers from Maxima have a large scale where you can place pieces of meat. When grinding meat, it’s important to use meat with a higher fat content. To get the best texture, first cut the meat into smaller pieces and use meat that has just come from the refrigerator.
Insert the appropriate disc with the desired hole size. This determines the texture of the meat. Once the appliance is switched on, use the stopper to guide the meat toward the small knives and disc plate. The sharp blade of the mincer effortlessly cuts the meat into small, uniform pieces. Gather the ground meat in a container or bowl.
For even finer mincing, the meat can be passed through the mincer again. Each mincer includes two standard hole sizes, six or eight millimeters in diameter. If desired, additional accessories can be purchased for an extra fine grind, such as a disc with three-millimeter holes.

How to clean a professional meat mincer
When preparing food, it's important to thoroughly clean your kitchen appliances and utensils after each use. When processing meat with kitchen appliances, there are often leftover pieces that can become difficult to remove if they dry out. Fortunately, cleaning this meat mincer is a simple task.
You can easily remove the grinding section for cleaning. The bowl, screw rings, spiral blade, knives and discs are all made from stainless steel or hardened steel, ensuring durability and easy maintenance. While these parts can be put in the dishwasher, it's advisable to remove any larger meat pieces before washing. Additionally, you can opt to soak these parts in warm water with a bit of vinegar for added cleanliness.
Once all the parts are cleaned, they can be reassembled with ease. Before reassembly, ensure that everything is completely dry. The casing of the meat mincer, also made from stainless steel, can be wiped down with a damp cloth. For optimal hygiene, it's recommended to use a solution of lemon water or vinegar and salt in warm water. This will provide the most hygienic outcome for your cleaning efforts.
