NEW and INNOVATIVE STYLE MEAT TENDERIZER also used as PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE PRESS!
- FDA Food Compliant 304 18-8 Stainless Steel
- Made and patented in the USA
Tenderizer is 2 1/4″ diameter, 1/2″ thick solid stainless steel and weighs 11 oz. With a handle it will be almost 1 lb. and with this weight, there is
no need to “pound” as with traditional aluminum mallet style tenderizers. If you put a round knob style top as shown in the picture, it will be ergonomically comfortable to use for arthritic hands, making it easier to tenderize any piece of meat or press Grandma’s Peanut Butter Cookies!. Combine this meat tenderizer with the chicken press and make a mallet like in the photo for a super tenderizer! It also comes with a custom made rubber cap so it won’t mar counter tops to keep it on display when not being used.
*note: these caps are available separately if you purchased the tenderizer
*How to: drill a 5/16″ hole in you handle blank, either use one of my self-tapping mandrels or the 3/8″ tap to thread the blank. With the mandrel on your headstock, thread the blank on the mandrel, bring up the tailstock to initially shape your handle; this eliminates vibration. Finish turning, apply finish of choice. Glue the set screw in the handle using either Titebond III or CA. You want to remove the handle to put the tenderizer in the dishwasher and if the set screw isn’t glued in the handle, with removing it often, the threads will wear thin and it will have to be glued in later.
*Tip: For selling at shows, make 6 to 10 different handles with the set screws attached and let the customers choose which handle they want on a tenderizer, cookie press or chicken press. They will feel like it’s a “custom” item. I do apologize for the slight price increase but stainless steel is starting to go up like everything else it seems.
*note: the wood handle in the photo is not included, it is just to show a suggested handle shape.
