Introduction NESCO® Food Grinder

  • With your own NESCO® Food Grinder, you control the ingredients. You control the amount of fats, salts and other additives, for a healthier diet. Chunky sandwich spreads, savory appetizers, hearty soups, relishes and homemade sausage.
  • You can make sausages out of any foods.
  •  Your NESCO® Food Grinder is intended for processing relatively small quantities. Meat needs to be cut into relatively small chunks and gristle should be removed or it will likely clog the grinding head assembly.  If the grinder is locked, turn grinder off and press the reverse button. If this does not unlock the grinder, turn the unit off, unplug the electrical cord from the outlet and disassemble the grinder head and remove the obstruction. Reassemble and continue grinding.
