Love it.
Whenever I see a mincer like that I get a squidgy feeling in my tum because many years ago in my early teens I was helping our African maid (Nanny) mince the meat. I used my forefinger to push the meat down when she turned the handle. The drama following was pure comedy in retrospect and I ended up with stitches and a still sensitive scar. Grin
very well done..

Whenever I see these mincers they always bring back memories of when I were a lad, and I got the job of mincing the meat! Never thought of mincing an orange for its juice though.... 😁🍊 A super idea and presentation here, Janet 😃👍

I love the colour contrast but hope not too many oranges were injured in the process.
I do love a juicy orange!

Great idea for a photo. I love the name ‘Spong’, sounds very comical. Yes I too had close finger encounters with one, but escaped just, as a kid. Did it make any juice here I wonder, Janet ?
Dave 🙂
The orange and green go extremely well together. Apart from the whole photo, I like the very subtle boundary line; just enough and perfect colour.

I just love that name - Spong mincer - conjures up all sorts of images in my head!
Always remember mum using one, especially to turn beef into mince for cottage pie.

Mum used to mince the left over cooked beef or lamb from Sunday on a Monday, along with raw onion for cottage or shepherd's pie ...the smell was divine, I loved all the different attachments for different size of mince.

It also makes me think of this video.....
Stick to oranges Janet.....don't mince any kids Wink
