Using a manual meat grinder can be tough labour. Hands can cramp after extended use of the hand crank. Depending on the task being performed, it can take hours longer to use a manual crank rather than an electric unit. However, you don't need to spend a lot of money to upgrade to an electric meat grinder. Utilising a common household tool, an electric drill, you can bring your old-fashioned unit up to speed.
