About LEM Products

LEM Products Direct was founded back in 1991. Although products with LEM branding are found in stores all over the USA and Canada, the company itself mostly operates over the internet. Its physical address is in Ohio, in West Chester. Lem manufactures and sells all sorts of products that you may need to convert your game to a tasty meal.

Larry Metz is the man behind the whole idea. Having worked for a large meat cutter company for 35 years, he left to launch his own company, staying in line with the meat cutting business. Being a hunter himself, he also has a pretty good idea of what people need to ease their meat preparation processes, as demonstrated by the type and quality of products manufactured by the company.

LEM products are generally well constructed and of very high quality. The products might be very highly priced, but you will certainly not regret your purchases. All you need to do is look around for a product that will fit your needs. In my opinion, the advantages of these products heavily outweigh the disadvantages.

PROS

LEM is an old and established company. It has all sorts of products that you may need to grind your meat. Whether you are new to the whole game preparation thing, or a seasoned professional, LEM has what you need. Their products range from entry level, all the way to heavy duty products that can be employed for commercial purposes.

LEM manufactures meat grinders, sausage products, jerky products, preparation products, seasonings, kitchen supplies, cooking products, drying products and storage products. The company comes up with new products consistently. All grinder spare parts are also readily available.

One thing I really liked about their heavy duty products is how they can comfortably grind bones. Only the #5 and #8 Big Bite grinders are not warranted to grind bones, although they can still be used for this. The company just doesn’t cover grinding bones in their warranty agreements. I used the #12, #22 and #32 Big Bite grinders to grind bones for my dog, and the machine didn’t even pause or slow down. Users are advised against using these machines to grind dense bones since they can cause damage to the machines.

LEM puts an emphasis on quality and believes in their products so much that they readily offer generous guarantees on the products. All LEM products are sold with a warranty and money back guarantee which, of course, vary depending on the product. For most products, the warranty covers the first year of purchase. Stainless steel electric meat grinders have the longest warranty periods, generally running for up to five years. For your warranty to be valid, it must be registered online, and you must have your purchase receipt with you. All the exchanges can be carried out online if you are not in a position to visit their offices in Ohio.

All LEM products also carry a 30-day money back guarantee. If any product fails to meet your expectations, you can return it to the manufacturer for a new one, or for a refund of your money within the first 30 days of purchase.

LEM uses returned products to manufacture refurbished products, which are sold with a new warranty agreement, and a 30-day money back guarantees. Refurbished stainless steel grinders come with a two-year warranty. These products are also sold with generous discounts since they are not really new products. That said, refurbished products are thoroughly inspected, repaired and made to be just as good as new. If you are working on a tight budget, then these products can help you save some extra cash.

CONS

One notable disadvantage of LEM grinders is the feeding tubes. For some reason, LEM grinders have small feeding tubes, and this means you always have to cut your meat into smaller pieces.

LEM also manufactures some powerful machines which still lack a reverse functionality. All of LEM’s heavy duty Big Bite meat grinders lack a reverse functionality, but these machines are so powerful, that it won’t clog anyway, so it’s not really an issue.

The meat grinders are also generally very highly priced.

CONCLUSION

As many other LEM customers will attest, LEM produces very high-quality products. The good thing with this company is that it has products for almost all types of hunters and meat grinders. Whether you are looking for a small scale product for your home and leisure needs or a machine that can produce meat for all your customers, LEM has you covered. Should their products fail to meet your expectations, you can always return them for a refund or an exchange.
