Anyone who has ever cooked a steak or even tried a barbeque will know just how important the marinating process is. It not only brings a lot more flavor to the meat, but it also begins the cooking process so you can leave that meat a little less on the heat and prevent it from drying out. However, the really dedicated chefs will go one step further and use a meat injector to bring even more flavor to the dinner table. In fact, although most cook will insist on the importance of actually leaving the meat to marinate, by using a meat injector you can cut that time in half, or you can even skip the hours upon hours of marinating. Ideally you should indeed leave the meat to marinate for a couple of hours at the very least, but, by pumping the marinate straight into the stake you can cut a couple of corners. Of course, the device itself needs to be of the very best quality or it will break down when you are pushing in a thicker sauce. That is why you should make sure to scroll past the following list of the best meat injectors of 2014 to the in depth reviews we have created for them and choose the one that best suits your needs.

1. Premium Quality Meat Injector by PrimoChef
We decided to start not with the very best choice we have tried, but with a couple of meat injectors that would be perfect for a regular kitchen. The Premium Quality Meat Injector from PrimoChef uses a stainless steel body and plunger that will last you for years and years. The one thing that you want to stay away from are plastic injectors that you can be certain will give out after a couple of uses. In fact we decided to start with the Premium Quality Meat Injector from PrimoChef because it is a relatively affordable alternative and it comes with a life time warranty. It also comes with 2m, stainless steel, large needles. We particularly like how big the holes on the basting needle are since most marinades and sauces will have some sort of garlic or onions chunks in them, and the side holes will deliver them right in the depth of the meat instead of acting like a sieve.
2. Mr Grill Meat / Marinade Injector
Our second choice for our list of the best meat injector of 2014 is also the cheapest one on our list. We honestly do not think you can or should go lower in price than this or you will compromise the quality of your kitchen utensils. It has a 2 ounce capacity on the syringe itself and a solid, stainless steel body. It also comes with a very comprehensive recipe book, and we are not too proud to admit that we actually were able to pick up some interesting suggestions from it. The other thing that we know you are going to love about the Mr. Grill meat injector is the fact that it comes with its own foam interior case that will not only protect your injector for year, but it will also make for a very interesting conversation starter at your next barbeque.
3. The SpitJack Magnum Meat Injector Gun
Now we can finally talk to you about our favorite meat injector of 2014. It is a much more expensive product than anything we have featured so far, and that is why we would only recommend this tool for the true gourmands, the people who know good food and insist on having it every day. The problem with every other injector on the market is that it uses a regular plunger and that can be quite difficult to press down on. It is not impossible, but if you are going to use a meat injector every other day, you will need to use The SpitJack. It uses a trigger to help you squeeze the brine straight into the meat using your entire hand. Its other interesting feature is the fact that the body of the injector is partially glass, like on those old time syringes, so you can see just how much sauce you have while you are pushing it in.
4. Meat Marinade Injector – Commercial Grade
The reason why we did not stop with the SpitJack was because Dad’s Jerky Meat Marinate Injector has one feature that no other product has: it has a 4 ounces capacity which will prove useful if you have a big family or a large group of friends and you cook for them often. That extra-large syringe will cut in half the time you spend injecting in the marinate and the fact that the needle is also extra-large, with 10 holes, further helps get your secret sauce in every part of the stake. It may not be the solution every family needs, but it will certainly make an excellent choice for some cooks.
5. Cuisavour’s Seasoning Injector with 2 Gourmet Marinade Needles
The last product we are going to discuss is the Cuisavour’s meat injector. It is just as good as any other injector we have featured here and it cost just about as much. The reason we decided to feature it on our best meat injector of 2014 list is precisely because there is no other injector in its class that is better than it is, and also because it has the Cuisavour’s stamped on the side. That may not make much of a difference for a lot of our readers, in which case we would like to direct you to the first reason we decided to give it a review, but it will matter to people who like to have a posh kitchen and that branding goes a long way towards that look.
