Description

Marcato Marga Mulino Flaker

Marcato's recently updated Marga Mulino flaker has been on the market for several years, and is one of the better-known flakers on the market. Marcato describes it as a flour mill as well, but in our view it really isn't practical at all as a flour mill because the effort level is very high, the process is slow (requiring multiple re-grinds), and the flour produced is very coarse. We can recommend it as a grain grinder only if your requirement is for a coarse meal texture, not flour—and even then, in our opinion there are much better choices for meal or flour.

What we can recommend the Marga for, is flaking grain. The six-position adjustability of its roller gap lets you select a setting perfect for your flaking needs, and the Marga maintains consistency of flake thickness and size as well as, or better than, any home flaker we've seen. To speed up the process, we offer this motor attachment for the Marcato flaker.

The frame of the Marcato Marga Mulino is heavy duty chromed steel and the rollers are anodized alloy. Hopper capacity is 14 oz. (based on oats), and the Marga flaker has a three year manufacturer's warranty.

Whether baked, cooked or raw, food tastes soooo much better when it's fresh—and oats are no exception! Our customers use their grain flakers more to make fresh oatmeal from oat groats than for any other use, and love the delicious difference they get with just-rolled.

A variety of other grains can be flaked with the Marga flaker, including wheat, rye, barley and millet, with a little preparation. These grains are normally dry and hard. To soften them, hold them under running water briefly in a strainer. Then spread the grains on a cloth or towel to let them dry over night or for at least 3-4 hours. This time will vary depending on the grain used, but a little experimentation will help optimize the process. The softened grain will flatten nicely into flakes. At the same time this contact with water starts an enzymatic process which makes it easier for your metabolism to assimilate the minerals in the grain.

The Marga has a low discharge height, and the clear plastic tray shown in the video is not included. The motor drive in the video also is not included.

Pleasant Hill Grain offers several other popular grain flakers, and a wide range of whole grain products, including oat groats (dehulled and stabilized oats.)

    I waited a long time to finally order my new Marcato Marga. I read reviews and reviews and looked at different sites, but I came back to PHG and I'm glad I did. I had a question, I called the 800# and a friendly, informative person answered it. Ok, so I ordered and it was a few days later and "It" arrived! Of course I opened the package and immediately read the manual, in English, and put it together, easy. I then pulled out some whole barley and flaked away! it was easy to crank the handle and I had flaked barley for cereal! This is a well made, beautiful tool and I would buy it again. I shouldn't have waited so long!
