  • Patent number: 8635948
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a working unit or a device that includes a working unit of this type for processing foodstuffs. The working unit can be driven and made to rotate by means of a drive unit of said device. The working unit preferably has at least two working elements that are situated on a working axis and that act in the peripheral direction of said working axis. At least one of the working elements can be pivoted about the working axis in relation to at least one additional working element within a restricted pivoting angle. The pivoting mobility of the blades, which are preferably interspaced and positioned axially one above the other, permits said blades to be brought into a common radial resting position in order to fill the container with the product to be cut, in such a way that practically the entire container volume is exposed and can be filled.

The hopper has a cover that can be releasably latched to the open top of the hopper. The hopper is rotatably mounted on a stand. A motor is attached to one side of the hopper and has a shaft that extends into the hopper. A spindle is mounted on the shaft and disposed inside the hopper. Rows of triangular-shaped extend radially from the spindle, with adjacent rows being canted in opposite directions. The motor rotates the spindle to shred the meat. A handle may be attached to the motor and used to manually rotate both the motor and the hopper on the stand to shake up or redistribute the meat within the hopper for thorough shredding.

  • Patent number: 7490788
    Abstract: An exemplary grinding machine includes a grinding unit and a receiving unit. The grinding unit includes a rotor, a first spindle, and a first driver unit connected in series. The first spindle has a first end coupled to the rotor. The first driver unit is coupled to an opposite second end of the first spindle and configured for driving the rotor to rotate relative to a first axis. The receiving unit includes a container configured for receiving the rotor therein. The container has an inner spherical grinding surface defining a central second axis. The first axis is parallel to and spaced from the second axis.
