  • Meat Maximizer™ 45-Blade Meat Tenderizer with Removable Blade Cartridge
  • Used in great kitchens around the world.
  • The patented, removable blade cartridge makes clean-up a snap.  So easy to clean – the product has earned NSF certification – the only hand-held tenderizer in the industry with such recognition.
  • Assembles and disassembles in just seconds.
  • 45 razor sharp knife blades cut through connective tissues that can make meat tough. Easy to use, this age old technique known as “jaccarding” makes faster, more flavorful, more tender meat! Helps to retain your meat's natural juices.
  • Perfect for beef, chicken, pork, veal, turkey and game -- readily penetrating flavor deeper into your favorite cuts.
  • Reduce cooking time by up to 40 percent while helping meats to cook more evenly.
  • Improves yield and "plate coverage" by reducing shrinkage.
  • Tiny "heat channels" are created, resulting in faster penetration of marinades, providing more even cooking throughout the meat, and significantly reduced cooking times – all without changing the shape or appearance of your meat.
  • Made of FDA compliant ABS and genuine 300 Series stainless steel metal components.
  • Highest quality stainless steel results in sharper blades that will not dull, discolor, rust or change shape over time.  Knives measure 50 RHC and are sharpened on both sides for prolonged performance that stays sharp – even after frequent use.
  • Dishwasher safe (top shelf recommended).

Andre Jaccard's Lesson # 1 - Mechanical Meat Tenderization

  1. Who invented mechanical tenderization of meat?  Andre Jaccard; founder of Jaccard Corporation, is widely credited with introducing the process of mechanical tenderizer to the United States
  2. What is a mechanical meat tenderizer?  A mechanical meat tenderizer utilizes a series of razor sharp knives (see diagram below) to surgically cut the meat’s “connective tissue”, thereby making any cut of meat “butter tender”.  
  3. Are mechanical meat tenderizers the same as meat mallets or hammers?  No.  While a meat mallet can breakdown the connective tissues on the top surface of the meat, it does not penetrate far enough into the meat to cut the many connective tissue structures below the surface.
  4. What is the “connective tissue” of meat?  Collagen is the protein that makes up connective tissues such as tendons and ligaments. It is an incredibly tough stuff and if meat has too much collagen it will be tough and hard to eat.
  5. What are the benefits of mechanical tenderization?  (a) Makes any cut of meat “butter tender”, (b)  stimulates quicker & more complete penetration of marinades and rubs, (c)  reduces cooking times by up to 40% & eliminates need to par boil poultry, (d)  promotes even / thorough cooking throughout meat regardless of uneven thickness or low / high spots and   (e)  reduces shrinkage of meat during cooking.
  6. Isn’t this the same as stabbing the meat with a fork?  No.  Think of a piece of rope and the difference between pushing a nail through the rope stands and pushing a razor sharp knife through the strands.  A nail will find a path through the rope without cutting the strands.  A knife will slice the strands.
  7. Are all mechanical meat tenderizers the same?  No.  Jaccard meat tenderizers have long been the gold standard within the industry and have lasted the test of time.  They are made of superior, high quality materials and are backed by Jaccard's exclusive Lifetime Replacement Guarantee.
