Aobosi is a renowned name in the kitchen appliance industry. They supply different quality products such as meat grinders, air fryer, juicer, mug warmer, and so on. Though they do not have so many items in the meat grinder product line, all the products they have are of good quality. In this article, I am going to review the Aobosi 1200W electric meat grinder that is one of the best choices in the low budget category. After the read, you will know the pros and cons of this item. Therefore, it will help you make a better decision.

We do not find the size of the feeding tube or grinding plate of this unit. However, what we can say from the experience that the size of this meat grinder is #8. Therefore, the feed tube and the grinding plate is not large enough to consume meat in large volume. But it will be sufficient for a residential kitchen.
The rated motor power of the Aobosi 1200W meat grinder is 350W. This may seem a little confusing because it is also a 1200W meat grinder. This 1200W is the maximum wattage at load, not the working wattage. Comparing with other #8 meat grinders we find that the motor power of this unit is average.

|Cuisinart MG-100 Electric Meat Grinder||300 W|

The motor power of 350W is sufficient for grinding meats of a small to large family. But it will not be good for commercial uses.
Grinding speed is an important factor if you are a heavy user. Especially, a commercial meat grinder must have a high grinding speed. For a residential grade meat grinder such as Aobosi 1200W, this feature is not that important. The operational speed of this unit is 132 lbs per hour. Comparing with the competitors, the speed is just below the per.
|Name of the meat grinder||Speed|

|Cuisinart MG-100 Electric Meat Grinder||180 Lbs/H|
|Chefman Choice Cut Electric Meat Grinder||156 Lbs/H|
|Bbday 350 W||180 Lbs/H|
Although the comparative grinding speed of this Aobosi meat grinder is lower, it will be sufficient for a residential kitchen.
The number of accessories that come as free with this Aobosi meat grinder is satisfactory. You will get three different sizes of grinding plates for fine, coarse, and medium output. The accessories also include stainless steel blade, sausage maker, kibbeh maker, and meat pusher.

If you are in a limited budget then the price is an important aspect for you. The price of this Aobosi meat grinder is around 50 bucks. Are the values generated by it good enough? According to my observation, you can compare this meat grinder with the competitors that cost around 100. It is difficult to find a better meat grinder at this price. Therefore, the overall value for the money of this unit is great. If you are interested, you can read our article on the top 7 meat grinders under 100 USD.
The metallic accessories of this unit such as grinding blades and plates are made of stainless steel as usual. You should not expect the feed tube and meat tray to be made of stainless steel as it is a budget meat grinder. I think these are made of aluminum alloy. But the finishing of the body and all the parts is fine. For this reason, this meat grinder is not dishwasher safe. You should clean it with mild liquid or wipe it with a wet cloth.
Weight and dimension
The dimension and weight of this Aobosi meat grinder are 15 x 6.7 x 12.2 inches and 8.05 Lbs consecutively. If we compare the dimension with other comparable meat grinders, then we find that it is a little bulkier. Although it will be a good fit for a small kitchen with limited space on the countertop. The comparative weight of this unit is average.
What is it good for?
Considering all the attributes above, I can say that the Aobosi 1200W meat grinder is a great choice for a residential kitchen. If you are a person who does not have enough money to spend but wants a great value for the money, then this one is the best choice for you. Although the manufacturer claims it to be good for commercial use, I must not suggest this unit for heavy commercial purposes. But you can use it in a restaurant or butcher’s shop for limited and light use.
What we liked about this Aobosi meat grinder
First of all, the value for the money is the most prominent advantage of this Aobosi meat grinder. Other than this, the number of accessories is also quite satisfactory. To avoid accidental start, this machine is equipped with a dual safety switch that is a unique feature of this unit. The trapezoidal design of this machine has made it more stable during you operate it. It has a built-in overheat protection system that cuts the power when the internal heat is too much. This mechanism is better for the longevity of the motor.
What we did not like
This Aobosi meat grinder is not dishwasher safe. Therefore, you have to wash and clean the accessories with warm water and light liquids. The body is also not made of stainless steel. Although I do not expect a stainless-steel meat grinder at this price. Other than this, it is a great choice for your home kitchen.
