The Inexpensive Weapon Of Choice For Many Home Cooks
When it comes to injecting meat, a heavy 304 grade stainless steel injector (most others are plastic or a cheaper metal with a chrome coat) is an ideal choice. It holds 2.3 ounces of fluid and comes with three needles, an 8 cm (3″) for thin cuts of meat, and two 15 cm (6″) needles. One of the needles has 12 holes for even distribution of liquids, and the other has an open end for easy injection of mixtures that have bits of garlic, herbs or other seasonings.
Equally appealing is the fact that it comes with 4 spare silicone O rings, and it comes in a nice box that holds all the parts. There is a comfortable three-hole finger grip to make injecting easier and the removable lid makes cleaning a snap. The silicone gasket provides a really good seal, and the injector comes with a lifetime guarantee.
