What to do when the knife in the meat grinder becomes dull?
A meat grinder is an important kitchen appliance familiar to everyone. An indispensable thing for grinding products: meat, nuts, vegetables, berries, fruits.
The auger of a classic meat grinder consists of two important elements:
movable blade (knife);
And the mechanism of operation is as follows: a rotating auger pushes food into the holes of the grate, and a movable knife cuts it on the sharp edges of these holes.
Therefore, it is important to replace the knife together with the grate. After all, if the grate is also dull, then the new knife will cut badly.
Over time, the knife and grate wear down, and the meat grinder no longer performs its functions so effectively, chewing food or crushing it.
Trying to sharpen an old knife yourself is difficult and unsafe. It is necessary to use professional equipment for high-quality sharpening.
Sharpening knives has its drawbacks:
the knife and the grate no longer fit tightly to each other, and the products are chewed;
sharpening must be done before each use of the meat grinder;
it is necessary to sharpen the knife evenly so that the fit to the grate is maximum.
In addition, it is important to replace the knife together with the grate. After all, if the grate is dull, then the new knife will cut badly.
It is much more profitable and easier to purchase a new knife for your combine harvester or meat grinder model. It will only need to be thoroughly rinsed and calmly used. And to make your new knife last longer, thoroughly rinse and dry it after each use. That way it won’t rust.
