A Mincer that Actually Workers: Taobao Recommendations

YuMiZuNovember 19, 2020~ 6 mins read

Hey Raw Feeders and Home Cooked Food owners, HEADS UP!

In the past 2 years that I’ve used the mincer, I’ve gotten many questions on the mincer I use, so let’s just one shot answer all the questions that you have!

Also, this mincer does not only mince meat and bones. You can use it to make sausages for yourself or your pet. But most importantly, you can also purchase the meat slicer component to slice or cube the meat if your pet does not want only minced food.

This is a looooong post, so please bear with me and skip to whatever is necessary for you.

To prevent having to read through everything, you can skip to the necessary pages here

About the Mincer I Bought

Cost of mincer: ¥950
Shipping fee: ¥180*
Total charges: ¥1130 (approx $226)

* Please note that recent shipping rates are much much higher due to a shortage of containers. See page 5 for more information.

The combo I purchased is 套餐三 (combo 3), and it comes with three sizes of cutting die and a sausage maker kit. The material that I chose is stainless steel for extra durability. I’ve used the mincer for 2 years and it is still functioning well.


What can it Mince?

Meat? Of course!
Chicken/duck neck? Yes.
Chicken/duck feet? Yes.
Chicken/duck carcass? Yes, but you need to cut it into smaller pieces first, which I found to be too much work, so never again.
Pork bone? No.

Simply put, you can only mince boneless meat and poultry bones. The only thing I will say you have to take note of is tendons because if the tendon is very long, it does not get minced up and ends up getting caught in the machine, which will cause it to stop. So if you are mincing tendons, I suggest mixing it with other meats to make your life easier.

Now, for some satisfying (yet kinda gross) ASMR of our past mincing videos.

Duck neck goes down quickly

My number one regret: Trying to mince a whole duck. It was too much work chopping the duck into smaller pieces, so I honestly do not recommend doing it because it is really tiring, unless you have a big meat cleaver to first hack the carcass into smaller pieces. But, the mincer can indeed mince a whole duck carcass.

More mincing, and honestly minced organs always looks horrible dripping from the mincer

And when you mincer them into a big bowl, it looks like ice kachang haha!


Make your meal prep easier!

Cast steel and Mangalloy can rust, so you must dry it thoroughly after washing, and use some cooking oil to grease the parts to prevent rusting.

Forwarding from China to Singapore

So, for sending the mincer (and any of your other Taobao loots) back from China to Singapore, you have many different options to select from. You can use Taobao’s own forwarding service, but it will probably be pretty ex since they charge by the bigger of the actual weight versus volumetric weight. With most third party forwarders for shipment via sea, they use volumetric weight, which will be a lot more affordable.

As of today (18/11/20), the current shipping charge for 0.1 cubic metres is ¥240 (approx $48). But the rates are fluctuating quite a bit lately, so check with the forwarder directly.

Step 1: Add Jason on WeChat

This is the usual forwarding company I go to, you can scan the code on WeChat and speak to him directly for the latest rates, and how to send your parcel back.

Step 2: Get the warehouse address from Jason

Inform him you need to send parcels back to Singapore, and he will give you the address of the warehouse to send all your parcels to.

Step 3: Add the address to your Taobao address

Then, copy the address and add it to the addresses on Taobao. Be sure to replace the part that says 你的中文名字 into your Chinese name, and ensure all other details are correct, and nothing is left out. Send a screenshot to Jason if you want to be safe, and have him check the information are correct.

Step 4: Shop as per normal

Now, you can shop as per normal. The only difference is that you should select the address given by Jason when checking out. Also, remind your sellers to write the code given to you so that your parcel is directed to the correct warehouse. For example, my code is C7232, so I’ll send this message to the sellers 货物外包装写上[唛头号C7232],切记!

When all your items has reached the warehouse, let Jason know you are ready to ship them out, and he will send you an excel sheet. Simply key in all the tracking number into the sheet with the necessary details, and they will prepare for consolidation.

P.S. To make sure that nothing is left out, be sure to just send a message to the seller and ask them how many parcels are there in case they send your order out in separate parcels.

Also, using third party forwarders allows you to buy things that Taobao does not allow to consolidate. This means that you can buy some pet products like shampoo, conditioner, treats, etc that you can’t send normally.

There are some really good shops that makes amazing homemade snacks for human or treats for your pets, just look around for them and you can send them over!
