For a long time we’ve been using everyday household manual and electric mincers.. after a fair few of them weren’t up to the job, we went Italian!
The Trespade No 8 EL Young Electric Mincer is the entry level of our range. Which sounds like a lot of money for an “entry level”… however, when breaking down venison carcasses, this little beast will work through around 10kgs of meat in approximately 10-15 minutes. The No.8 is the smallest and ideally suited for home use, for making batches of mince, sausages, burgers or even paté.
It will mince a range of meat including Pork, Game, Lamb, Beef or Venison with ease. This little workhorse will mince around 10kgs of meat in approximately 10-15 minutes.
With two mincing plates in the box, this electric mincer gives you the option to mince a coarse or a finer mince. By using the fine plate, you can also produce the mince fine enough to paté.
Whilst there are dedicated sausage makers available, the No 8 EL Young comes with 2 sausage nozzles included. These give you the option to make Chipolata or Cumberland size sausages, and provide endless hours of entertainment while you perfect your recipe and sausage stuffing technique.
It is easy to dismantle and clean and will fit easily into the bottom section of a standard kitchen cupboard. We would suggest that you do not put this mincer assembly in the dishwasher, cast iron doesn’t take too kindly to it. Although… we do offer a stainless steel electric mincer, the Trespade No.8 Stainless Steel Electric Mincer. This one has a stainless assembly and can be washed in the dishwasher.
Using the No.8 El Young Electric Mincer for mincing meat…
This electric mincer will deal with pretty much any meat you throw at it, pork, lamb, venison, beef, game, poultry, it doesn’t matter.
It also, couldn’t be simpler. From our findings prep your meat before mincing, the smaller the chunk, the easier your machine is working, with mechanical sympathy in mind, chunk your meat down and preserve the life of the motor and bearings.
Ensure you have the blade and mincing plate that you require installed.
Start the mincer.
Load the feed chute with care, keeping hands clear of the chute, and use the provided “stuffing bat” (not the official name for them I’m sure) to press the chunks into the chute.
Stand back and admire your mice pouring out of your No.8 El Young Electric Mincer.
Enjoy using the mince for cooking loads of different dishes… or… look below for advice on sausage stuffing.
Using the No.8 El Young Electric Mincer for making sausages…
Take the meat you’ve minced in the step above, add your chosen seasonings, breadcrumbs, spices etc to make it to your taste.
Remove the plate and knife part from the electric mincer.
Ensure you have the larger gauge 16mm plate fitted into the electric mincer.
Put one of the sausage nozzles onto the front of the outlet pipe and fit the screw on ring back on.
Install your chosen casings onto the nozzle leaving about an inch hanging over the end, then put the sausage meat back through the mincer to fill into the casings.
