Food processor & meat grinder

A food processor and a meat grinder are both kitchen appliances that can be used to chop, grind, or puree food. However, they are designed for different tasks and have some key differences.
A food processor is a kitchen appliance that can chop, shred, puree, and grind a wide variety of foods. It typically has a large container or bowl with a blade at the bottom that is powered by an electric motor. Some models may also come with additional attachments, such as a shredding disc or a slicing disc, to expand their capabilities.
A meat grinder, on the other hand, is specifically designed for grinding meats. It typically has a metal auger or blade that grinds meat by forcing it through a metal plate with small holes. Meat grinders can be manual or electric. Electric meat grinders tend to be more powerful and efficient than manual ones. Meat grinders are used for preparing ground meats for burgers, sausages, and meatloaf, etc.
Many food processors now come with attachments for meat grinding, that way it can be used for both the tasks.
It's worth noting that some food processors may not be able to handle large chunks of meat, and a stand-alone meat grinder may be necessary for some types of ground meats and is considered more efficient.
