Some of the advantages of electrical meat grinders include efficiency, speed and sanitation. Electric meat grinders are versatile, easy to use and require relatively little maintenance.
Electric meat grinders are efficient because they only require the user to feed meat into the feeding chute. Manual meat grinders are more difficult to use because they require the user to turn a hand crank. Electric models also get the work done in a much shorter time, and are particularly good for grinding large amounts of meat.
Electric meat grinders are easier to set up than their manual counterparts. They have few attachments, and only require to be plugged in before use. Manual units are larger and bulkier, and are secured by twisting a clamp. They are overall more difficult to get started.
Finally, electric grinders are less messy and more sanitary. Manual grinders require the user to turn the hand crank and handle meat at the same time. This can contaminate the meat especially if the meat grinder is not cleaned properly. Electric meat grinders are more expensive, but make up for the cost in convenience, speed and efficiency.
