2, 3 or 4 blades?

Postby Thewitt » Sat May 11, 2013 6:19 pm

I bought a reasonably heavy duty Meat Chopper made by Orimas, model TBS 200.

It comes with 4 discs of varying sizes, along with 4 knives. Two of the knives have 4 blades, one has 3 and the other has only 2.

Can someone shed light on what purpose the 3 and 2 blade knives serve?

You can always try different combinations and see what happens.

My guess is that 2 blades will make a more even chunk of meat when larger holed dies are used. 2 blades obviously slices half as much as four blades so if you slice too much with large holes i would imagine the meat chunk theoretically shaped like a hockey puck instead of something closer to 1:1 length to diameter ratio.

On the other end if you were to try the 2 blades on a small holed die then the meat might backup because it isn't being cut enough to be pushed out of the die at the correct rate.

What is the perfect balance? I have no idea but I'm guessing personal preference will have a lot to do with it.
