    Wow! That looks so pretty! We have a hand crank one that I have yet to use... and I want to get the Kitchen Aid attachment now that we have one for when we start raising meat animals in the next few years.

    I have a decent hand cranked grinder.
    I grind some deboned rabbit each time I process.
    I actually debone all my rabbit anyway besides the front legs. Need a handle when eating those, haha.
    I grind mine with half pork fat to make sausage. I also grind it with even amnt of pork, and abt 1/4 or 1/5 beef and make some awesome summer sausage.
    I haven't tried to make it into rabbit burgers because too lean for my taste, and don't like ground chicken or turkey much anyway.
    I have tried electric and definitely prefer the manual crank.

    Oh, forgot. I pass mine through twice coarse, and once fine.

    I personally have the field and stream electric grinder. It takes time for big game such as deer or antelope but it does work pretty well even with adding fat. Depending how how fine you like your meat you might have to run it through twice. But for rabbit meat I think it would do just fine and only cost us $100 at Dicks sporting good.
