I am highly disappointed in this product.
However if you are looking for something to cut up your large pieces of pot roast, then it works wonderfully. I looked over the box, searched through the “owners manual” and no where does it say that this product is not intended to cut through bone. When thee blade hits the bone, it turns, not only do you get zig zagging cuts but the blade also cuts into it’s own aluminum base. There is no way to keep the blade from doing this.(we are not incompetent around band saws). And like all the other reviews I have seen about home meat saws, the blade falls from the track often.
We ended up deboning all our meat by hand, and using the saw to only cut the meat into roasts and steaks. The grinder works beautifully, hands down beating a hand cranked grinder.
If you can’t afford to buy a commercial meat band saw then I would highly recommend buying a Saws-all. Cuts trough bone like butter, leaving gorgeous steaks in it’s wake.
