Grain mill MT 12 Nut without plastics*
The mill for connoisseurs – with stainless-steel thread
With a milling capacity of 170g of fine flour, this grain mill is the best choice when a large family has the need of a lot of flour in a short time.
Great importance is attached to natural materials in the construction of a Salzburg flour mill.
The housing and the funnelof the stylish mill are made of beech wood and protected on the outside with organic beeswax oil.
All conventionally used cereals can be milled, but also hard grain such as rice, maize, soybeans, chickpeas etc. are processed perfectly.
We preserve old values
and strive to build our grain mills as ecologically as possible.
We have always been passionate about technological improvements. When it comes to upgrading materials, we have however remained “traditional”.
Milling with natural granite stones:
Since the beginning of time, people have ground grain with natural stones. Granite is renowned for its durability, hardness and self-sharpening properties. This is what we consciously demonstrate through the warranty we offer.
Granite is nature in its purest form – without any bonding agent.
Impurities, such as pebbles that might be in your grain, are easily ground up by the granite stones. We are not aware of any stone particles breaking out and then getting into your flour.
Granite millstones therefore protect your teeth.
The FOOD grain is ground as naturally as possible with BIO granite stones.
Baking with flour ground on a natural stone is a real experience! Crispy breads, fragrant cakes and pastries reward the miller for his work.
Healthy cereal for breakfast?
Self-ground grain provides the precious foundation of a nutrient-rich breakfast.
The milling chamber
Two components lend the grain mill its strength and durability:
- The thread
- and the milling chamber located therein.
1. The stainless steel thread (and at the same time the outer stainless steel chamber)
For decades, a thread made of steel was used to adjust the milling fineness. This high-quality and robust adjustment system became known for its precise millstone guidance and is still highly valued by technicians and mill connoisseurs today.
A special feature of this design is the dissipation of the drive unit’s heat: Steel is known to be an excellent conductor of heat and prevents heat build-up.
Today we are one step further and use stainless steel.
2. The inner milling chamber made of wood:
As a logical consequence, the inner grinding chamber is made of wood, and the stainless steel flour spout is diligently covered with wood on the inside. The wooden inner chamber ensures that the flour retains its precious nutrients unaltered. All wooden parts on the inside are free of any varnishing substances and solvents. The freshly milled flour only comes into contact with hard, untreated beech wood, except for the millstone and the stone carrier. For decades, beech wood has proved to be the best material for this part of the mill, which is subject to heavy wear.
Unlike most plastics, wood has proven antistatic and antibacterial properties.
Adjustment of the degree of fineness by means of stainless steel thread
The coarse-fine adjustmentis made by turning the funnel by means of a stainless steel thread. The flour fineness can be adjusted with millimetre precision. This is maintained during the entire grinding process.
This avoids the need to correct the flour fineness.
The 550 watt industrial drive unit
Is manufactured in Europe (not in China). It is dimensioned more powerful than needed and completely maintenance-free. The drives are durable and protected against overload. They are precisely matched to the size of the millstones.
The mill does not require any special maintenance. To clean the mill occasionally, it can be opened without tools in a matter of seconds with a small twist of the funnel.
There are things between heaven and earth,that cannot be explained and yet exist. It is the same with the flour of the natural stone. Is it possibly to explain the way to bake with it scientifically? Hardly! But you can believe us when we say that old, experienced bakers have tasted this flour with the subsequent statement, in good Austrian:
Des is hoid no a Mö! (in English: That’s simply flour how it’s supposed to be!)
