    I'm a big fan of heavy cast iron grinders. I have a size 32 which is pretty large. for a hand mincer, I wouldn't go below a 22.

    Cast iron ones are great, because you can freeze down the whole unit.

    Find a good one and you'll hand it down to your grandchildren one day. Try 'tre spade' for a good Italian unit.

    I'd love to find a #32, but for now my 22 will have to do.

    Another thing to keep in mind about these cast iron grinders, if the hand crank becomes too much for you, you can add a motor, gear box and pulley and make it a bulletproof electric grinder.

    I have the plastic one and it is terrible. Now the metal one that spinblue posted looks like it has potential.

    I have the 1 1/2 horse commercial grinder from Cabela's which is a total workhorse. We make a lot of sausage, so it comes in handy and cleans up easily.

    Sorry I have been offline. I will choose one of these grinders, and thanks for the suggestions everyone. Be prepared to give some kick-ass sausage recipes

    I picked up a LEM #12 earlier this year and couldn't be happier. The thing is a beast and does an awesome job.

    It looks like a decent grinder attachment for a mixer runs as much or more than a small standalone grinder. Has anyone used any of the smaller countertop grinders, like the Lem 575 watt model? I know a bigger one would be better, but I don't grind that much meat and I'd throw out my back schlepping one around.
