What distinguishes the Salzburger Grain Mill?
The solid wood milling chamber
This is where the grain is milled! This means that even if friction is built up on the side wall no synthetic material is transferred to the flour.
| ||In our milling chamber your grain and flour only comes into contact with pure wood(except stone holders and mill-stones) |
|We construct all our milling chambers from solid, hard, untreated beech wood |
Wood has known antibacterial properties

Wood has anti-static properties!

The millstone – the heart of the mill
We are the only manufacturer offering natural millstones for electrical household mills
We are great lovers of natural granite millstones
The production of our mills with natural stone milling mechanisms is, however, considerably more complex and more costly for us than the production of our mills with our synthetic millstones. For this reason, we also offer alternative, lower-priced mills with corundum-ceramic millstones.
|Granite millstones are formed by nature and are mined from nature! |
|Salzburger Grain Mills with natural granite millstones ||Artificial corundum ceramic millstoneAlmost all other manufacturers use corundum ceramic millstones |
| || |
|We therefore grant a 24 year warranty on breakage or break out of stone particles. Free sharpening of granite millstones (if required) within a 12 year warranty period ||Corundum ceramic grinding stones – main component Artificially produced corundum |
Corundum (alumina Al2O3) used to come from natural deposits (eg Naxos Island, Greece). It is a very hard, artificially manufactured mineral for abrasives today. Various degrees of purity can be achieved during the production in the melting process: from dark brown normal corundum to white precious corundum. In order to influence the properties (eg toughness, chipping ability) of the precious corundum in the desired manner, certain elements such as chromium or zirconium are incorporated in a controlled manner into the crystal lattice and the different types of precious corundum with the corresponding colors are formed.

The solid wood housing
Illustration: Solid wood – our mill “Max
|Our mill housings are made of solid, hard beech-wood |
For surface treatment, we use only organic beeswax oil, no linseed oil varnish and no paint.
We use no plywood, multiplex or plastic materials
The proven coarse/fine adjustment
based on the experience of a lifetime of over 30 years.
| ||Easy operation with one hand. Adjusting the fineness is also possible during milling. |
|Coarse/fine adjustment is achieved by lifting and lowering of the lower millstone. || |
Thread made of steel or stainless steel
|We use no plastic threads, but construct our threads from steel or stainless steel |
| ||We use proven Austrian ATB industrial motors and renounce the use of Chinese imports |
