1 Kamut is extremely hard. A lot of heat is generated during grinding and thus condensate. Therefore, grind Kamut only in very small quantities (depending on the mill type). Grab into the flour – if it is too hot, turn off the mill and ventilate the grinding chamber after grinding.
Depending on the fineness, you can grind the following quantities:

  • MAX special approx. 250 grams
  • MT 12 approx. 500 grams
  • MT 18 approx. 750 grams
  • When ordering a mill, please refer to the use of Kamut.

2 Corn: There are many different types of Corn. The edible Corn, which is common in Austria and Germany, is not a problem for the marked mills. But especially in Italy there are very old, especially old varieties of which we know that some of them cannot be grinded. Unfortunately, we cannot test and cite all types of corn.

2 Corn

Normal edible corn, as is common in Austria or Germany, can be ground with the hand mills. However, it is more forceful. There are many different types of Corn. Especially in Italy there are very old, particularly hard varieties of which we know that some of them cannot be grinded. Unfortunately, we cannot test and cite all types of corn.

What you can’t grind:

In general, no oily seeds can be ground such as:

  • Flaxseed
  • Mustard seeds
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Poppy
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Nuts
  • Almonds

Due to the consistency, you cannot grind:

  • Salt
  • sugar
  • Tea
  • Flowers
  • Leaves
  • Buds
  • Grasses
  • Sprouts
  • small woods
  • dried small fruits and berries
  • Chestnuts
  • various cores

It is not recommended to grind coffee. Colour and smell penetrate the grinding stone, cleaning is very difficult. If only coffee is to be ground, please contact us
