STX 4000 Turboforce II Meat Grinder Review

STX 4000 Turboforce II

The STX 4000 TB2 Turboforce II Meat Grinder is what manufacturers describe as a “Beauty and a Beast” because of its stylish appearance and outstanding performance. This grinder reminds me of a classic car with a black finish and shiny chrome parts. We love its power and speed as well as the new features.

The key innovative design element is the cooling system, which ensures the grinder’s motor remains cool, even under load. For anyone who needs a grinder capable of handling large quantities of meat, this air-cooled grinder is fast becoming the grinder of choice. The cooling feature is also reputed to double the grinder’s life, designed to save you money.

We are also impressed with the five grinding plates that come with the unit, some being new sizes. A bean plate is included in the five and allows for speedy stuffing of sausages. If you are looking for a quality, high-performing electric meat grinder that can easily handle large quantities, the STX 4000 is a good choice.
