- SCIENTIFIC: It’s proven. Experiments after experiments, it’s no longer disputable. Salt tenderizes meat and so do salty marinades. Salty marinades don't only help meat to retain moisture but inject additional moisture into it. Hence, tough cuts become juicy and tender. Bladed meat tenderizers generally perform way better than using a fork or hammer (as a byproduct, it also breaks down some tough fibers when penetrating the meat). But not all tenderizers are created equal. Read on to see why.
- BY REAL KITCHEN: MAIRICO studied the most popular bladed tenderizers on the market for strengths and weaknesses in its test kitchen. Many didn't auto release. Some blades were bent on the tough cuts, some rust in the dishwasher, some claim to be sharp but are dull, some have too many blades and are difficult to use. Some started out sharp but quickly became dull after a few uses. Some hold a bunch of water in their handle after a wash and some are just slippery to hold. We can do better.
- IMPROVED THROUGH ITERATIONS: MAIRICO Kitchen thought we could do better. We made prototypes after prototypes, improvements after improvements on the discovered weaknesses, until a final version that outperformed them all (7 iterations of prototypes in all). Some of the major improvements are mentioned in the following paragraphs. There are also several minor improvements you’ll feel it when you use it.
- TRUE AUTOMATIC RELEASE: It’s important. And it’s a much-desired feature once you start using the product. You would want it to work perfectly: Once you press down the tenderizer blades into the meat, it should automatically release. More than half the models we tested couldn’t achieve this. They’re stuck in the meat, especially when used on thick cuts. The issue lies in the weakness of the spring. It feels dangerous to have to pull the stuck blades out after each press.
DON'T BE CONFUSED: With various manufacturers having designs from 24 to 60 blades, which should you choose? Fortunately, we have the answer. We enlisted 19 home cooks and 3 professional chefs to try out different blade designs in two month period, in their real kitchen in real cooking scenarios. And the answer is unanimous: 48 blades. 24 is too small for large cuts and requires too much repetition. 60 is too large for small cuts. 48 blades is the right number of blades for all cuts.
- EASY CLEAN UP: When done, simply rinse and place on top rack of dishwasher for a thorough wash.
- TOP PERFORMANCE GUARANTEED: We guarantee that you'll be very happy with our meat tenderizer and that it'll help you make much better tasting food. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, simply return it for a FULL REFUND.
I got this gift for my husband, who has recently starting reverting back to his cave man urges of hunting and grilling! Unfortunately, it's an expensive hobby, if you want to buy the world's best meat when the hunter has a rough day. Sadly, that's not really something we can afford to do most of the time. Thankfully, I found this little gem online and gave it to him as as a birthday gift. We've only used it once so far, but we're happy with the purchase! It took some supermarket meat (far from the filet section) and turned it into tender, tasty, meat that was easy to chew and enjoy. We'll definitely use it again and recommend it to friends - hard to beat the price!
So far I am very happy with MAIRICO's Meat Tenderizer. I was tenderizing my Tri-Tips with a dining fork before marinating. I would poke wholes on both sides of the meat. This was time consuming and left my hand aching. I used this Meat Tenderizer on a Tri-Tip and the whole poking was done very quickly and the marinade penetrate the meat more thoroughly. After barbecuing, the Tri-Tip was very tender and flavorful. I am very happy with the results.I am very fond of corned beef, but it is difficult to find and expensive to purchase. However, I found some USDA Prime brisket at $4.00 per pound locally. I used this Meat Tenderizer again before putting it in a pickling spice brine mixture for a week. After cooking for 4 hours, the home made corned beef had picked up the pickling spice nicely. It had a nice stringiness and was very tender. I am looking forward to years of use with the MAIRICO Meat-with this Tenderizer.
Cuts through your meat prior to cooking or marinating. Once you use this product, your meat will never be the same! You can have the greatest steaks in town with out the cost of going out. A huge cost saver but I love the product! Will be browsing more of MAIRICO's other kitchen tools for my cooking enjoyment!
Hmm, hmm good. The meat becomes so tender and juicy after using this product. The blades are sharp and the size is perfect.
We wanted this tenderizer to make the most out of our budget. We can feel confident buying something other than prime and to know that we can make it as tender as ever. It worked great on sirloin steak and anything else we have tried it on. I can't wait to try it out on flank steak.
