If you’re looking for a kitchen tool that can do more than one job, the Norpro Meat Grinder, Mincer, and Pasta Maker will fit the bill.  With just one product you can mince, grind, and make fresh pasta at home.

This three-in-one device comes with all you need to mince your favorite herbs and vegetables.  It comes with two screens – one for coarse mincing and one for fine mincing to suit your needs.

In addition, you can use it to grind meats and even comes with a sausage funnel attachment if you’re interested in making your own delicious sausage from scratch. The grinder is made with stainless steel blades that are built to last.

Finally, if you’ve always wanted to make your own fresh, tender pasta you’ll have several choices.  This tool comes with three attachments that allow you to make your choice of rigatoni, linguine, or spaghetti.

The base of this accessory has a suction cup with locking key.  You can attach it to a table or countertop with strong suction that keeps it in place.  This makes it easier to use as well as much safer.

There are so many uses for this tool, but it only takes up a small space in your cabinet when not in use.  It’s also very easy to use.  Once you have the machine assembled for the use you need, you can easily turn the crank to grind, mince, or make pasta.

While the machine is made of plastic, it’s very thick and durable.  You don’t have to worry about it cracking or breaking from multiple uses.  Customers who have purchased this tool find that it works well for grinding pork, beef, chicken, and turkey.  Some users recommend chilling the meat in the freezer for about an hour to make grinding easier.

They’ve also had success using it to mince or grind nuts, vegetables, cooked grains, and in using the grinder for making baby food and other types of purees.  Especially in a time when people question the safety of commercial foods this tool is helpful.

By grinding your own meat and making your own sausages, you can feel confident that you’re not eating any mystery ingredients.  And by making your own pastas you can enjoy fresh flavor without additives and preservatives that can be found in many products.

Finally, this tool is great if you’re interested in reducing your carbon footprint.  The Norpro Meat Grinder, Mincer, and Pasta Maker is powered completely by hand and doesn’t use any electricity to do its job.

Norpro’s meat grinder/mincer/pasta maker combines the functionality of three kitchen gadgets in one. Crush beans, vegetables and nuts for spreads and pâté; grind beef chuck, round or sirloin for incredible homemade hamburgers; pulverize stale bread for breadcrumbs; or break up veggies for baby food. The possibilities are endless thanks to coarse- and fine-textured steel mincing plates.

Three pasta attachments open up a world of Italian cuisine, enabling cooks to create fresh homemade rigatoni, spaghetti, or linguine. Plus, an enclosed funnel makes grinding sausage a snap. Also included are a suction-locking pestle, plastic tray, detailed instructions, and a recipe booklet. The unit stands 7 inches high with a 4-1/4 inch diameter base.
