If your meat grinder has pieces of meat stuck in it, run a piece of bread through it to remove the pieces before you wash it.

I found that using croutons instead of softer bread works better.

Mother always ran her onion through last.

I have an old metal meat grinder. How would I go about cleaning it so that I can start using is? Thanks.

It may have a little rust on, use an old tooth brush to clean in the little places. Don't let it soak in water long. Rub a little cooking oil, shortening on them, then wipe it off. Seasoning the metal. Old kettles, appliances, tools always did best when cared for with a little 'lard'ing.

Try putting some slices of bread through the meat grinder to take off the surface rust inside the grinder

I am giggling from my toes ;-) Those old metal meat grinders would "maybe" rust if they've been left out in the rain for a decade or more ;-) I still have my mom and dad's old meat grinder that they received as a wedding gift in 1953 and, believe me, those puppies can take great abuse ;-) They're like the old Timex watch ads, "They take a licking and keep on ticking." :-) Die-hard cooks still demand them and they are still produced ;-)

Just soak it in the bleach and water as I mentioned below and then soap clean and all the bacteria and possible gunky build up of food particles will definitely be gone :-)

Oh, and chris t makes a good point about taking them apart ... I am glad chris mentioned it :-)
