Inspired Village… Before minced meat was a supermarket staple, who remembers it being made at home with a trip to the butchers and one of these?

Steve Thorpe… I had one in the eighties.

Mike Waghorne… I often remember having to use one helping my mother in the kitchen when I was around 4 or 5

Stuart Moir… My mum had one of those, I used to put mud in it

Judy Atkinson… I still have one of these. Used to mince the leftover cold beef or lamb with onion & carrot for cottage/shepherd’s pie

Pat Fears… yes, me too.

Keith Rodway… Still use one

David Edmunds… You could buy mince from the butcher these were used mainly for mincing Sunday roast meat to make rissoles or shepherds pie

Paul Slidel… Yes, I remember them well. Usually used for leftover roast meats to make shepherds pie yum

Martin Stoggell… Still got one I think.

Tony Court-holmes… my nan had one

Glenn Piper… Oh yes

Pauline Hillier… Yes I do

Harry Norcliffe… The bacon slicer always fascinated me.

Faith Brooker… One of my jobs.

Margaret Fletcher… My mum had one

David Natan… Me To

Yvonne Ellis… Yes

Serena Jackson… Left over lamb for shepherds pie on a Monday

Alan Esdaile… Mum and dad had one. Lots of leftovers put in it but shepherds pie used to taste much better then!

Colin Bell… They used real Shepherds in those days……..

Jacquie Hinves… I have one of those mincers in my cupboard. It was granny’s.

Janet Brophy… My Mum & Dad Had One Of These

Dave Nattress… Yes, my Mother had one of these when I was very young exactly the same as this. Funny enough for the first time for ages tonite’s tucker is home made shepherds pie, good home cooking from the Chief Chef on a rotten windy rainy October night. Meat already minced these days.
That’s the end of the good news, bad is the dog still has to go out – not that she minds the rain!

Judy Atkinson… Alan, buying ready minced meat is not the same as mincing your own cooked meat. Also you need to mince the carrots & onions to go with it

Ray Binning… We still have one. It’s still used occasionally.

Alan Vale… years ago got one at a car boot £0.50 I think long gone now

Rick Startin… Yep, I’ve still got the one we had when I was a kid
