After switching on the appliance, you can use the stopper to push the meat towards the small knives and disc plate. The blade of the mincer cuts the meat into small pieces. Collect the ground meat in a container or bowl. Now it’s ready to use in your dish.

These have holes with a diameter of either six or eight millimetres. You can also purchase extra accessories if you want to grind the meat extra fine.
