Product Description


The LEM Big BiteTM #8 Stainless Steel Meat Grinder delivers enhanced performance for all your meat processing needs. Featuring Big BiteTM technology, the LEM 8 allows more meat into the auger and moves it to the grinder head more quickly for a faster grind without clogs. A rifled grinder head delivers an easier second grind by reducing the need for a stomper. The 110-volt motor on the LEM 8 Grinder is permanently lubricated, allowing for easier care and a quieter grind. For a more dependable and faster grind, use the LEM Big BiteTM #8 Stainless Steel Meat Grinder.

Great Grinder
Great grinder! Really good quality. Wish I'd bought sooner. I was using a kitchen-aid mixer with grinder attachment...night and day difference!!

Very fast grinder. Like that Big Bite feature. Motor is quiet with plenty of power.
Bought my Big Bite a few years back. This is the fastest small #8 plate grinder I've ever witnessed. No need to chunk meat into smaller pieces. I hand feed 2- 1/2 " X 8" strips down its throat when grinding near frozen pork butt or bottom Sirloin & Chuck beef. Motor & worm gear gobbles meat up without a drop in rpm. Only dislike? Wishing there was a Reversing motor feature like the bigger Lem grinders have which is not all that important on this speedy little #8.

Careful of connective tissue!
I really love this grinder and have never regretted pending the cash for it. The old KitchenAid attachment was hopelessly inefficient. The #8 grinder goes through 5 pounds of sausage-bound pork shoulder in minutes. A word to the wise, however. This evening I ground pork shoulder, chuck and some Osso Buco that had been languishing in my freezer, to make a big batch of Bolognese ragu. The osso buco was a big mistake. The connective tissue in it fouled the grinder, turning my meat into mush. Fortunately, I have a very old German F Dick 7" cleaver (from the 1920's I expect) and used it to pre chop the meat, then passed that through the grinder using the large die. Problem solved (and lesson learned!).

Great grinder
I stepped up from using a cheap grinder on our KitchenAid mixer. I was amazed at how fast and easily I can now process sausage. This equipment is a game changer. The machine works faster than I can load it.

Fantastic investment!
This meat grinder is built like a tank and grinds meat quickly and easily. I am extremely happy with this product and also purchased the meat mixer that can be attached to efficiently mix spices evenly throughout the ground meat.

Grinder works even better than I expected. I’m sure it will last a lifetime.

Quite, Powerful, and man does it grind. I already ground up over 800 pounds of pork, beef and venison.
This is my 2nd LEM #8 Grinder. When I received the #8 Big Bite, I gave my old one, which I had for over 15 years and still works great. Barry is very happy. Lol

Now I understand why it's called the "BIG BITE"
The all stainless steel construction surpassed my expectation. So impressed with the quality and performance. I can't hardly keep up with the feed when grinding the meat. It takes me longer to prep the meat for grinding than the grind. Would definitely recommend this grinder for the serious home chef.
