Salzburger Grain Mill MT 5 – Nut with stainless steel thread
Built like in the 1970s.
More than 40 years ago, the “Original Salzburg Grain Mill MT 5“ was designed with a steel thread for adjusting the fineness of the ground flour.
Even today, decades later, pioneers and mill connoisseurs still speak of these mills and their high quality.
The concept of that time has proven its worthiness and mills built 30, 40 years ago are still in use today.
20 years later, in the years around 1990, the mill was modernized and equipped with a new adjustment mechanism, with bayonet lock. (See grain mill MT 5)
However, it turned out that this modernization involved compromises in terms of the mill’s versatility.
The elegant bayonet lock is best suited for milling small grains such as rice, wheat, rye, spelt, einkorn etc., but is shaken loose by large grains.
For many chefs today, however, experimenting with special grains such as kamut, maize, soybeans, etc. is interesting. People with allergies in particular attach great importance to being able to mill gluten-free grains, which are usually large and hard.
That is why we have returned to the roots in 2020 and proudly present the new, old…
Original Salzburger grain mill MT 5 ED with stainless-steel thread, the most beautiful and robust mill (with a 360 watt drive) from the Salzburger Land.
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 have gone 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, with the exception of the millstone and the stone carrier. For decades, beech wood has proven to be the best material for this heavily used part of the mill.
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. It remains in place during the entire grinding process.
This avoids the need to correct the flour fineness.
The 360 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.
Baking with a natural stone flour is a real experience! Crispy breads, fragrant cakes and pastries reward the miller for his work.
There are things between heaven and earth,
which cannot be explained and which still exists. So it is with the flour of the natural stone. How could we explain the baking behavior in a highly scientific way? Hardly possible! But you can believe us that old, experienced bakers have tasted this flour with the following Statement, in good Austrian:
Des is hoid no a Mö! (in High German: That’s just another flour!)
