LEM Products Clamp-On Meat Tenderizer
Tenderizer works very well. Very easy clean up and storage. Minor limitation - the thickness of the piece of meat to be tenderized is somewhat thin. No adjustment can be made to accommodate thicker pieces.
Good quality metal tenderizer for the money though.

I started with an "el cheapo" Mr. Tenderizer which is plastic junk. This tenderizer is heavy duty. I don't understand the negative reviews because it does what it is designed to do. I have processed 6 deer using this for steaks and have had no problem with pulverizing or the steaks not being tender. It does work and works well.

You get what you pay for
I bought this two years ago when they came out because I wanted to start processing my own deer. I also bought the smallest LEM Grinder. The Tenderizer is messy because of the design and it takes a little effort to clamp it to the counter, but works well once you get it on. I tried putting the steaks through it twice but found it unnecessary. I did take the orange plastic cover off. I found it just made using the tenderizer harder and I think it was put on there for safty reason. If your not stupid you should be able to keep your fingers out of the way. Clean up was pretty easy I just hosed it off with my sprayer from the sink and let the runoff go down the disposal. Steaks were very tender and I couldn't tell the difference between them and those I had done professionally the year before. If you don't want to spend a couple hundred bucks on the bladed one I think you'll be happy with this. If you've got the money to spend get the better ones with the blades. All in all it's a good peice of equipment for the price.
