Meat mincers are now essential tools for most butchers when they wish to chop or mix raw or cooked meat. Originally butchers would use mincing knives to produce minced meats before the meat mincer revolutionised the industry.
Butchers would use either a mincer knife or cleaver to mince the meat. This meant that the production of minced meat was very slow a laborious for the butcher. For centuries this was the way minced meat was produced.
In the nineteenth century German inventor, Karl Drais invented the first meat mixer, which was hand cranked and it forced the meat through a metal plate that had small holes in it. This resulted in long, thin strands of meat.
