Ham ham – a convenient tool for cooking delicacies in home conditions. For the cost of 2-5 kilograms of quality store ham you get a device that can provide you natural product for many years to come.
But the choice in the ham market is wide – how to find a model that will be as convenient and easy to use as possible? Editors facilitated your choice by finding the most successful devices among others.
How to choose ham
Even such a simple device is important to choose the right depending on your desires and needs. When we search we recommend that you pay attention to the following characteristics models.
- The form. Can be found on sale square ham or round section. The choice of form depends only on which form ham you prefer. For taste or cooking convenience she does not affect.
- Volume. Measured in liters, actual load in kilograms varies depending on the density of meat or minced meat. We recommend that you estimate the approximate consumption of ham / sausage in your family and take the model “to fit.” The standard is considered volume up to 1.5 liters of the finished product.
- Body material. The most universal will be stainless steel, from which most models are made. It allows you to cook not only on water, but also in the oven. And gives you the opportunity to not worry about quick spoilage or excretion harmful substances in the finished product. There are also plastic models – they are more convenient, but not suitable for everyone.
- Sizes. Most standard ham makers have dimensions of 11x11x17 centimeters. But it’s better to choose a model like this so that it fits completely in the intended dishes for cooking (pot or bowl of a multicooker).
By the way, we recommend using ham to cook in a slow cooker is much easier than trying to withstand the temperature 75-85 ° C in a standard pan or oven. But if you wish you can cook delicious ham on anything, the main thing is not to overheat meat, otherwise instead of delicacy you get pressed minced meat cutlet.

Smile S 302
This ham is the cheapest of foreign models in our rating. Her purchase will cost you only 900 rubles – practically like 2-3 kilograms of decent store ham. Naturally, such low price affected the thickness of materials – stainless steel and springs quite thin and look fragile. Therefore overload ham products we do not recommend – may crumple or burst.
The ham is relatively small – only 1.1 kilograms of finished ham at a time. The bottom has three standard provisions. Square shape and four pressure springs on the cover provide excellent product compression. But in a slow cooker or a small pan to place the device will be problematic – to lie it will not be exactly at the bottom.
In the reviews, buyers note that the shape makes the ham more convenient for slicing. And on sandwiches it looks better. But there is a drawback – the metal is poorly processed, because of which the edges turned sharp.
- Low price.
- Square section – ham is more convenient when cooking sandwiches.
- Sharp edges of the case and cover – you can accidentally cut yourself.
- Uncomfortable to place during cooking – does not lie flat on the bottom.

The bottom has three positions, the top cover is fixed three tight (sometimes too tight) springs. At the exit you can get up to 1 kilogram of the finished product.
There were some shortcomings. Metal machined poor quality – the edges of the cover and the ends of the springs can cut the skin, if they are inadvertently offended. In addition, the walls and cover are pretty thin, which affects longevity. In user reviews they write that after some time the “stainless steel” Beloboki begins rust a little.
- DVD instruction included.
- Poor stainless steel – corrodes when use.
