This is a very well made grinder. All metal construction except for the bushings which are self-lubricating nylon. Grinds meat very well, and quickly. Two extrusion plates are provided for fine and course grind. Be aware, this is a hand-wash tool. The cutting blades and extrusion plates are high-carbon steel. If you put them in your dishwasher they will be rusted to the point of ruin. The product literature clearly states that this tool must be hand-washed with mild detergent then immediately dried. I use compressed air "dust remover" to get the water out of the holes in the extrusion plates. The steel parts should then be lightly coated with food-grade oil. This takes less then five minutes. If you take proper care off this machine it should last a lifetime or longer.
