Used my meat tenderizer for the first time and it worked like a charm. Cut some steaks out of the venison ham and ran them through the $277. stainless steel hand meat tenderizer. The first pass through looked good enough, we ran them through again and wow it did its job with very little effort. After pan frying the steaks tI didn't need a knife to cut them, did it with a fork. I have purchased several items from LEM and so far very happy with the purchases LEM has a customer for life.
I've owned one for about 5 yrs. now and use it during winter to tenderize my deer meat. It's very well made, easy to use, does an excellent job, and cleanup is simple too. It'sworth every penny if you cannot afford to spend the extra $ on a electric model.
