Before the first use please mill a handful of grain on scale 6 and then discard the flour.
This will remove any mineral debris from the manufacturing process on the milling stones.
1. Connect the plug to the power socket.
2. Place a bowl beneath the chute.
3. Select milling grade.
4. Switch on the mill.
5. Add the grain to the hopper.
6. After milling switch the mill off.
Please read carefully before using your Mockmill for the first time.
Use only cleaned grains. Unclean grain may contain small stones that can damage the milling stones.
Milling foods or substances other than those listed in the milling guide can damage your mill and void the warranty.

Only use dry grain for milling. Moist grain will lead to the build-up of a film on the milling stones. You can remove the film simply by milling dry grain on a coarse setting.
If in doubt, press a kernel onto a hard surface with the back of a spoon: If it breaks with a loud crack, the grain is dry.
Grains that are too damp for milling can be squashed flat and then they look like a rolled oat. Rye should be stored for at least six months following harvesting before milling.
More information about the different grain types and their uses as well as the adjustment of the milling grades can be found on our website under Service/Help on mockmill.com
The Mockmill easily handles dried spices and seasonings, including pepper, coriander, cardamon, cinnamon, and more. Please note that some spices, such as cinnamon, may need to be broken into pieces small enough to feed into the Mockmill.
To flush the mill of the aroma of milled spices, simply mill a small amount of grain (such as wheat or rice) right away. Then use this “flavored flour” to add aroma to your baking or sauces!
Please refrain from milling nuts or oily foods such as sesame, flax, or poppy seeds. Even coffee beans contain a great deal of oil, which leaves a film on the milling stones, rendering them incabable of processing the grain properly. However, you have the option to mill oily products or fresh herbs by milling them together with dry grains (mixing ratio: 5% oily product to 95% dry).
Choose a coarse setting and mill about half a cup of dry grain, such as wheat or rice. Move the lever from coarse to fine and back again while milling. Milling on a very coarse setting, so that the grains are just broken, will quickly remove any film from the milling stones. For thoroughness the grains can be passed epeatedly through the Mockmill. In severe cases, when a hard film has built up on the stones, it is advisable that a few slits be cut into the film’s surface with a sharp object, such as the tip of a paring knife. This creates a starting point for the cleaning process.
Cleaning the mill stones & chamber
The Mockmill is a piece of electrical equipment and should only be used under proper super-vision (and not by children).
Keep hands and other objects (such as spoons or screwdrivers) away from the milling mecha-nism at all times. Failure to do so could cause injury (to the fingers) and/or damage the milling stones.
Never submerge the Mockmill in water or any other liquid. Wipe the casing clean with a moist cloth. It is important that no water enters the mill. The millstones should never be cleaned with water or a wet cloth!
Always disconnect the appliance before cleaning.
The milling stones clean themselves if you select a coarse setting from time to time. If the mill is not to be used for a while, we recommend removing flour residue by milling on a coarser setting.
If the Mockmill is not operating properly, you can easily open the Mockmill to inspect.
The milling chamber can be cleaned by the following steps.
1. Please disconnect the Mockmill from the power socket before opening. Turn the hopper anti clockwise.
2. Lift the upper stone (stator) and control the milling surfaces.If a hard film has built up on the stones please remove this by following the instructions on page 17. Then the stator can be put back on.
3.Take the hopper and turn it one full time clockwise. Then plug the mill into the power socket and switch on. Turn the mill further until you hear a slight ticking noise.
