The better manual ones are all metal. Check for that.

Micki, take a look at Amazon.com. They have numerous manual meat
grinders available, at least in the United States. I had an unfortunate
experience with an electric one many years ago. The problem was that the
impeller had a plastic screw molded to a metal shaft and it was
impossible to clean it as meat worked its way under the plastic and it
STUNK. I tend to avoid them for this reason, but the manual ones
probably have an all metal impeller and should not have this problem.
