I'm looking at buying a mincer and am seeing them listed with descriptions like:

  • Cast Iron Meat Mincer # 12
  • Kitchen Craft Cast Iron Mincer 5

I haven't yet seen any mention of what the number means though! Can someone please enlighten me?

5

The number specifies the diameter of the grinder plate

  • #5 is 2 1/8 inches
  • #8 is 2 1/2 inches
  • #10 and #12 are 2 3/4 inches
  • #20 and #22 are 3 1/4 inches
  • #32 is 3 7/8 inches
