Mr Grill injector customer review

“The first thing I tried it on was a pork butt roast. After injecting the roast I put it in a zip lock bag with some of juice left over and did the same with some pork ribs. I let them marinade in the refridgerator for two days turning them over once in a while in order to spread the marinade evenly. This injector is of professional grade and has opened a new chapter in my cooking. And by the way, the meat is delicious and tender through and through….(read more here: Mr Grill seasoning injector review)”

Our opinion of the MR. Grill injector

With an average of 4.7 out of 5 stars from over 275 people, there can be not too much wrong with this meat injector. I found one person that mentioned that at the first use the needle rusted, but he was able to brush it of. I would have send it back.
Like all injectors it is a little hard to use with thicker marinates and solutions. Also be careful when you use a warm solution. The heat get transferred through the metal real fast and it might be getting warm.
Most reviewers mention the sturdiness and liked the whole hand grip with the 2 rings on the side to put your fingers in.
Overall this meat and marinade injector can be recommended as a good buy for a descent price

Grill Beast Stainless Steel Meat Injector review

(Back to Top)
grill beast injector reviewThe grill beast injector kit is a number one seller and received a 4.9 rating from over 275 reviewers.
The stainless steel is high grade and the injector hold 2 ounces, just like most other brands.
The needles are 6 inches long and that makes it possible to even use it as a turkey injector.

Grill beast injector customer review

“Heavy duty and comes with tips, hints and video online on the best way to use it. I purchased it to use with fruit by injecting spirits into watermelon initially. The product owner was verry helpful and even called me to talk about the best way to do that. Since then I have also used it to inject meats for grilling and roasting. Once I got the hang of it I like using it. The customer service they have is great and in the USA so it is easy to contact them….(read more here: Grill Beast meat injector review)”

Our opinion of the grill beast injector

It was not easy to find bad things to write about the Grill beast injector. I could only find a total of 3 somewhat negative reviews.One about the o-ring leaking and one about that the marinade came out in clumps in the meat.
Maybe this can be blamed on the marinade and not on the quality of the meat injector?.
The 6 inch long needles make it possible to use it for larger cuts of meat and also to marinate a whole chicken or turkey.
There is E-book included in the purchase of the grill beast and a 100% money back guarantee.
We can give this a “highly recommended and thumbs up” recommendation.

Bayou Classic 5011 2 ounce review

(Back to Top)
bayou classic 5011 reviewThis Bayou injector can be bought as a single injector or in a 3 pack. This is easy if you need presents for all backyard grillers. I could not find how long the needles re, but looking at the picture I guess about 3 or 4 inch.

Bayou classic 50011 customer review

“Good quality heavy steel and fit and finish are good. The threads on the cap are thin but could only be stripped by not paying attention. It works smoothly. The complaints of filling it with juice is again just silly, if your juice is too shallow to use the liquid needle (the one with the holes) use the minced marinade needle to fill and turn it upside down and swap needles. I give this 4 stars only because this is not made in USA….(read more here: Bayou classic 5011 review)”

Our opinion of the Bayou injector 5011

After reading lot of customer reviews on several sites we can come to the conclusion that this injector is pretty sturdy and hard to break. It will last many years if used in a normal way. There was a little complaint about the holes being big and that made it hard to suck up the liquids. They stated it was easier to fill from the top in that case.
The ounces markings on the side makes it easy to see how much you inject at every place.
The fine threat on the top is a little easy to strip according to some people, but I could only find a few complaints about that.
Overall this meat injector that also can be used for marinades with some courser ingredients can be considered a good buy for its money.

Epica 2 ounce Stainless-Steel injector review

(Back to Top)
Epica meat injector reviewEpica is a well known brand and that is why the 4.7 star rating form almost 300 users does not surprise me.
The 6 inch needles in combination with the easy grip for 3 fingers makes it very easy to use.

Epica meat injector customer review

“I did not have to worry about waiting for the sauce I was injecting to cool to a temp to use in a plastic injector that otherwise may have damaged it. The two different types of needles was also a plus. The multi-port needle is great for large cuts of meat, but you have to either make sure you have all of the openings inside the meat, or you will get splash out side of where you want….(read more here: Epica injector review)”

Our opinion of the Epica 2 ounce seasoning injector

We always look at the lower ratings first in our reviews to see if we even include the product on our website, but there was no doubt about the Epica injector. With its 2 ounces it is just as big as the other once we reviewed, but the thing that got most mentioned most was the quality of the material and that it was easy to take apart to clean.
The downside was the threat on the on the plunger top was a little touchy, but I read that in most other reviews also.
Almost 300 reviews and an average of 4.7 stars makes this a good buy for its bucks.

cuisavor meat injector reviewHigh grade 18/8 stainless steel body and comes also with two needles. As an bonus you will get a silicone basting brush with your purchase.

Cuisavour injector customer review

“Cuisavour’s stainless steel seasoning injector has a great built quality. I personally tried the other brand, the ones with a plastic cylinder, it’s cheap and I thought it will last but I actually used it for only three times then it was already broken. Now I learned from that mistake and bought this stainless injector and I’m very satisfied, it was worth the money. I’m using it every weekend to cook some good food, it’s very easy to assemble/disassemble, very comfortable to use and clean! If you want a sturdy seasoning injector I recommend this!
…(read more here: Cuisavour seasoning injector review)”

Our opinion of the Cuisavour meat injector

Almost did not include this injector in our reviews because I did see many reviews from people who got a free example in exchange for a review and that always make me wonder a little.
But I found many more reviews from verified buyers and that made me change my mind, because that would make it possible for met to write an honest review.
What I found that it is a pretty good quality product and easy in use and easy to clean.
If I would recalculate the ratings and subtract the the “pai” reviewers I still come to a very good rating.
Overalll we can give this meat/marinade injector a good rating and a good buy for its money. Although the price is a little higher than the other injectors we reviewed.

Injector needle and marinade needle

(Back to Top)
Although I personally have used both type of needles for marinating and injecting meat, some people like to use a different needle for different type of meats.
Injector needle
meat injector needle
This needle is just like the needle in a syringe and has the opening at the end.
 
Marinating needle
marinating needle
This one has several openings all over the length of the needle and the end is sealed to spread the solution only form the sides. This one is better to use with marinades that contain more solids like minced garlic.
 
I think it is just a personal preference, but I can also see the point of people saying that the marinating solution will be better divided through out the meat.
I have used both and could not really see or taste a difference. But feel free to let me know if you think I am wrong and you now why we should use one.
 

Tips and advice

(Back to Top)

  • Use a little olive oil on the plungers to make them work easier
  • Use the marinate needle for liquids that contain more solids to divide them better in the meat
  • Clean and dry good after use
