The Good Grips Meat Tenderizer is perfect for taking care of your meat and creating the most tender cuts. It features a flat side for pounding and a textured side for tenderizing. The solid aluminum construction is extra sturdy and soft handle absorbs pressure. Not recommended for use in dishwasher.
If you're fond of thin cutlets or like your meat tender as butter, this meat tenderizer is the tool for the job--it's got a flat side for pounding and a textured side for tenderizing. This hammerlike gadget features one-piece aluminum construction for strength and durability. The large, comfortable handle is made of brushed stainless steel with rubber fins for comfort and will remain cool to the touch. It's also nonslip under wet or dry conditions. And the large hanging hole in the handle makes storage easy. This tool must be washed by hand. --Laurie Notaro

Oxo Good Grips Meat Tenderizer Functionally as a meat tenderizer it is quite adequate: hefty enough to do the job and with a grip comfortable to use (like most Oxo products). Its principle drawback is that it can't be put into a dishwasher. I use it a lot on chicken and like to sterilize it afterward - which has to be done by hand....more info
I Can't Review This was given as part of a wedding gift set. I have not heard pro nor con about this item from the receiving couple...more info
Cant put in Dishwasher! Heads up! I got this meat tenderizer today and as always oxo has made a great product however I must admit I was a little dissapointed that it CANNOT BE PUT INTO THE DISHWASHER. The dishwasher is a staple in my everyday life... I clean everything with it...and its a bummer I cant put the tenderizer in it too... oh well... its still a well made product.
Oxo Good Grips Meat Tenderizer Bought this Oxo product based on its looks and reviews. Was I ever disappointed. A piece of junk! Top broke off the 2nd time used. Once it breaks, you can see the poor quality aluminum used in this product. Just another piece of Chinese junk in the garbage. I should have kept the warrenty for something like this. Will be buying a stainless commerical one now......more info
Excellent Quality Big enough but not too big for all kinds of tendering jobs. Its heavy enough but not too heavy that you wouldn't need to use a lot of strength. Size and shape are perfect. Does a wonderful meat job....more info
A Gourmet Cook's Necessity Every good cook or chef needs a good meat pounder to flatten or tenderize meats. This is the one you need. ...more info
Heavy duty The only thing that might be a downfall with this product is that it is not dishwasher safe. But I do dishes the "old-fashioned" way so it won't be a problem. It is of a nice weight where I don't have to put forth too much effort to get the results I am looking for. One side is flat for making meat flat while the other has little teeth that will make tougher cuts of meat more tender. I am very happy with this product....more info
Works great I love to make my own pork tenderlion sandwiches but didn't really have the right tool to make them thin and nice so I purchased this and it works great. Love the design of this meat tenderizer and it is so light and easy to use. Would highly recommend this item to anyone....more info
Rock solid This OXO item is rock solid! Worth the money, and definitly does tenderize meat. Item shipped exactly as described!
great tool for it's intended use, unless you have other plans! Let us be clear, if you're going to take the time to cook in your kitchen, you know a few items must need cleaning afterwards, right? Some more than others. For all those people complaining about this tool not being able to withstand the rigors that a dishwasher can dish out, here's a novel idea straight from the confines of common sense. We've all seen the little, brightly-colored spray bottles in bins at grocery stores, mega-stores and such. Fill one with half and half water and bleach, have it within reach . . . that is, just at about ankle level below the sink your standing at, spray the item to be washed and sanitized to your satisfaction (be liberal if you choose to) and then rest assured you've done everything possible under the sun to have your tight little niche of the world as "restaurant-clean and safe" as any four or five star eatery closely managed by astute folks not wanting to lose their job because of some health department oversight on their part. It's not that we are too lazy to get there, it's just that it's been such a long day with bending and such. And the heat in the kitchen, oh my! Next topic, please!
Besides the foregoing lesson, the thing works great as it should. It will pound meat all day long with the best of them and at a very reasonable price too. OXO rocks significantly!...more info
Black Hands! Great - except that the handle turns my hands black. Maybe it's not dishwasher safe....more info
Okay, but they make a better one I used this for several years, and it is fine for what it is. I like the handle, but the head is a bit small, which can tear the meat.
I've since replaced it with the i-series version, which I like a lot better:

Not bad THis meat tenderizer in not a bad deal. It has a good balance to it and the rubberized handle gives you a solid grip with little or no feedback when pulverizing a thick chop or steak. The only major drawback is that the rubber grip is glued on so it is not dishwasher safe. You therefore have to treat it as if it were a wooden tenderizer, to a certain extent....more info
sturdy piece MY WIFE USE THIS TENDERIZER FOR THE FIRST TIME, FOUND IT TO BE DURABLE AND WELL BALANCED ABOVE ALL IT DID THE JOB IT WAS MADE FOR....more info
Great deal This is a light study and easy to use mallet that is great for pounding out scaloppine. The only drawback is that its not supposed to go into the dishwasher. Great value!...more info
