These durable meat shredders are made from 18/8, 304-grade stainless steel, the highest quality of steel, known for its extreme heat resistance (up to 1,598°F) and corrosion resistance.
The claws are heavily reinforced and have a 1” inch cutting edge at the tip of each claw, so you can actually cut into tougher roasts and butts as you shred. The wood handle is very comfortable, and the manufacturer claims it won’t melt or bend, but I wish it were sealed, as the bare unsealed wood easily gets soaked, absorbing meat juices and grease during meat shredding.
Although these shredders are dishwasher safe, multiple washings could loosen the rivets or even dislodge the wood handles from the blade. The shredders are BPA free with an attractive, rustic appearance, and they come with a 30-day money back guarantee and a 1-year free replacement warranty. Other clones of this type include 1EasyLife, ICCKER, and Wuudi. They are relatively inexpensive.
