    lidl / aldi type mincers are they any good

    What do you guys that have tried them think of them, any good for the odd roe / fallow bits to make sausages ?

    I use my local butcher. I provide the skinned carcass he adds mix, pork fat, skins and makes them up for 1 a kilo. I think that's a bargain.

    I have killed a few mincers in my time, can't comment on the Aldi ones but the cheaper they are the quicker they die in my hands!

    Mine has Lidl mincer worked fine for 4 years, they come with a 3 year guarantee, I would not recommend for daily grind but occasional use is fine ( maybe once a month).

    I have a Lidl one that I brought a couple of years ago and it is still going strong. It doesn't get a lot of use, but for my purposes has been good value for money.

    It will apparently make sausages, but I just take boned venison to the butchers and they make them for me.

    I found the Lidl one not strong enough to mince a roe/fallow or boar in a session. It got overheated and finally out of service, even mincing carefully, just a few seconds each time, etc. But if you just mince a leg or so it might be OK.

    Now I use a Carrefour mincer, don't know if there are such stores in the UK, which is not more expensive but stronger enough to do an animal in a go. Just the look of the mincer itself is much more profesional, metallic parts instead of plastic...
