Do you still use a mincer like this one, or do you use something more modern to mince food?

I have one of the wonderful mincers and it used to be my mum's. I have not used it in a while purely as I haven't had anything which required mincing! I will never part with it unless it is to give it to my chef son! What a brilliant piece of equipment and definitely made to last a lifetime!
Amen to that! So easy to pull apart and clean; so easy to get fine or coarse. . . I used to beg to be allowed to use it as a child.

I did until I had my kitchen remodelled and it did not fit on the bench anymore, so I gave it away.

I now have an attachment on my Kenwood Mixmaster though I think this is more work and more washing up than the old fashioned style.

They are antiques now and I have seen them a few times in collectible shops when I used to go to this type of shop.

They are still efficient and simple -I do not have a processor and not sure if a processor minces meat or fish?
by Finy
I agree with you Finy, the old one was the way to go - simple and efficient. A processor turns it to mush very quickly, you have to keep a good eye on it unlesss you want meat paste. I had the Kenwood too and agree that it was a chore to keep clean.

I am sure my mother's old one is around somewhere, I should see which one of us has it. I prefer the old ones over anything.

I buy ready minced meat. So, no, I haven't used one of these or a modern alternative.

I would if I had one. I have a kitchen aid but have not purchased the minced attachment

I personally have never used one like this. But I know persons who say they haven't used one of this type in years.
We have this one and the modern attachments for the electricals but we always use this one and pretty easy to clean too.
Had a Spong Mincer but now don't know where it is. Far superior mince to the electrical ones and doesn't heat the meat whilst you are mincing.
Quick to clean and easy. Little bit of oil on the parts and you are done. Great for cold roast lamb or beef to make shepherds pie, put an onion through the mincer at the same time as the meat, plenty of black pepper and all the left over gravy you have….lovely. Top it with mashed potato and stik it in the oven for 30 minutesif you can be bothered. I heat it in a pan and top toast with it…..just lovely and such a lazy meal.
I have never used a mincer like this but my mother had one and used it all the time. The meat was delicious and tender.
Buy food already minced if need be.
My Mum used to have a Moulis, & used it constantly!

I’ve never had on, but my parents did. I don’t know what happened it it, when dad died, & my moved out into her next house, on her own.1 of my 2 sisters may have taken it.
I still have mine on my fishing boat. Great for making instant berley heads and all. Wouldnt be without it. Yes I do wait till they're dead....Mick
