  • The Original Super Meat Tenderizer ™
  • Professional quality, 48 knife hand-held meat tenderizer
  • Used in great restaurants around the world.
  • Achieve better cooking results from less expensive cuts of meat or enhance the flavor and texture of even the finest meats with the original multi-knife, manual meat tenderizer.
  • Razor sharp knife blades cut through connective tissues that can make meat tough. Simple to do, this age old technique known as “jaccarding” makes more flavorful, more tender meat!  Also 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.

    I love the way these tenderizer cuts the meat fibers and injects tenderizer powder as well as spices deep into the meat. There is no splashing of the blood and juices all over the place which makes clean up even easier.

    I just purchased on of these and I have to say this is high quality and built to last. It does everything it claims to do, so you won't be unsatisfied and sending it back. Heavy duty and very well made. I highly recommend it.

    Rating Gotta have this!
    My friend, who owns a restaurant, bought me this amazing tool 15 years ago. The tool simply penetrates all types of meat - poultry - fish -- SIMPLY! Take the toughest meat you have and run the Jaccard through it a few times and when you go to eat it you can almost use a fork to cut it. So soft and palatable. After Jaccarding your meat your marinade will soak right in. You'll love this item!

    I have been using the Jaccard tenderizer for years on deer and wild turkey. It makes every steak so tender you can cut it with a butter knife. We have used it several times on venison from big, old bucks, and the result is always the same — tender steaks that my whole family enjoys. Buying this tenderizer was a fantastic investment!

    Rating Great Product
    As an avid deer hunter, I would typically only use the backstraps and tenderloin for steak. After trying this product, even the tougher cuts are so tender that I am saving many more cuts for the grill. Plus, the marinade penetrates throughout the steak in minutes, not hours. This is the perfect tenderizer for those that like wild game meats. Thank Jaccard!

    My father was a professional butcher and store owner. He thought enough of . this item to purchase one for all of his offspring. I have used it on occasion and it delivers the same effect as having cube steak. My disappointment is if you need to replace a part, good luck! Though this company has a contact us mail slot, your not going to get any help. Lifetime Warranty... good luck!

    Rating Super Meat Tenderizer 48 blade owner
    My parents own one of these tenderizers, and recommended it to me. I purchased one and absolutely love it. It tenderizes better than the "hole" type tenderizers or the mallet! My most recent purchase was actually for a friend, who also loves it and can't believe how well it works at making everything tender. The "blade" tenderizing just seems to work so much better, and it takes less time to marinate and cook. It is worth the money, plus it's easy to clean because it's dishwasher safe.

    I brought this to tenderize elk and bison. It works very well! We had tried traditional marinades and techniques, but this make a tough piece of meat slice and chew much easier!
