Use of bread

Cleaning the meat grinder can be simplified by using bread. After work, disassemble the device and remove the remaining meat. Then pass a piece of bread through a meat grinder to collect the remains, because it absorbs fat and oil.

Freezing details

Another effective tip for cleaning the meat grinder after use is to freeze its parts before cleaning. By placing the parts in the freezer for about 30 minutes, the remaining meat or fat will harden and it will be easier to remove them. After cooling, gently scrape off the residue with a small brush or toothpick.
