Juicer vs Meat grinder
Unlike juicers, meat grinder are mainly invented to grind meat.
You can get the best possible result using meat grinder as you will get finely grounded meat that is loosely packed and has a good texture. you can choose different size of ground meat by changing the hole size of the palate in a meat grinder. you can make sausages or hot dogs too.
not only that those meat grinders are so strong that you can use them to grind meat with bones too. and use it to make pet food (dog or cat). beside most electrical meat grinder comes with a reverse button which helps to stop jamming.
you can use manual meat grinder for grinding meat and in some case making juice too.
juicer , specially horizontal slow juicers, can grind meat
Juicers vs food processor
Besides its usual use like chopping vegetables and making dough, food processors can chop meat too.
A food processor can grind meat and turn it into uneven chank of the large and fine slice. and can handle bones within the meat. but juicers will grind the meat into fine particles and cant handle bones in the meat.
when you run the food processor for a long time, it may turn your meat into past form.
that’s why you will not be able to make sausage with a food processor. or grinding meat for burgers.
Juicers vs blenders
if you have both a blender and a juicer, I will recommend you to use a juicer. as blender produce, lots of heat compare to slow juicers.
Besides making smoothies, the blender can grind meat too. you can blend frozen meat in a blender but you will not get the good texture as meat grinder does. for a blender, Frozen meat is needed to r to get the best result.
if you want to make sausages then you can use juicer or meat grinder instead of a blender. and if you want to make other ground meat for a burger or other purposes you can use a meat grinder
if you blend meat for a long time you will get paste meat instead of tiny chopped meat. but Blenders can grind bones and hard tissues of meat and prepare dog food.
even though , a meat grinder is better than any kitchen appliance (juicer, food processor, blender ) when it’s about grinding meat.
