Description

Marcato Marga Mulino Flaker

Yogurt with granola, honey, chia and strawberriesMarcato'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 ten 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.

  • “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... This is a well made, beautiful tool and I would buy it again. I shouldn't have waited so long!”

    – Lisa L., OK

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.

  • Marcato Marga Mulino Flaker vs. Flaker Mill for KitchenAid
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I purchased the Flaker Mill attachment for the KitchenAid first and was not happy with the thickness of the oat flakes, especially for oatmeal cookies. The oat flakes were too thick in my opinion and the KitchenAid Mill attachment does not have any adjustments. Additionally, the roller for the KitchenAid attachment is only about 1 inch or so wide so it is rather slow at processing the oats. The roller for the Marcato Marga Mulino Flaker however is much wider, probably 5 or six inches and the Marcato Marga Mulino Flaker has an adjustment knob where you can change the thickness of the flakes all the way down to a coarse flour, (although it is too coarse for flour in my opinion). Additionally, because the floor is so much wider it processes the oats much faster than the KitchenAid flaker attachment even though it is done manually with a crank handle. Although the KitchenAid works as advertised I would rate the KitchenAid at a 3 compared to the Marcato Marga Mulino Flaker which I rate as a 5.

  • Fresh is better!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    First, this is my first whack at mulling or flaking after considering it for years. Who needs another chunk of iron in the kitchen, am I right? No, I am wrong. The difference in freshly flaked oats (to you preference) is totally worth it. Absolutely delicious.

    Second, Marcato. Works a treat. I have their pasta roller. The flaker is just as bulletproof as the pasta roller. Seems like this will last considerably longer than an Italian constitution. Whacka whacka

    Get one. You won’t be sorry.

  • Marcato Marga Mulino vs All-Steel roller mills
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I have just replaced my ALL-Steel oat roller mill with this Marcato Marga Mulino from PHG and been using it for a month. Now I know the difference!! The Marcato is a much better quality. It turns more smoothly and the hopper on top feeds the oats to the rollers continuously without needing me to use my fingers to break up blockages. The PHG site said it did not come with a container to catch the grain, but I was so pleased to receive my order with a beautiful rectangular receiving container that matches the hopper. All the parts - metal and plastic - are nicer quality than the All-Steel mill. My old All-Steel mill has no marks indicating it was made in Italy or by Marcato, though they now advertise both. And there is NO one supporting the All-Steel mill any longer with repair parts, information, or service.

    I highly recommend the Marcato and that you order from PHG, as the Marcato on Amazon looks like an older model and I trust PHG to be there if you ever have any need of help.

  • Even better than the original flaker
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I've been using the Marga flaker for more than 20 years. Even replaced my original 5 years ago. I noticed that there was a motor available for it, and since I flake kamut and spelt I ordered one, only to find out that the motor fit only a redesigned flaker. I was going to return it, but decided instead to buy the redesigned model and give mine away to a friend who ate oatmeal. The flaker arrived the next day! The new design is easier to use and clean. Since it doesn't have a grain catcher it would have been good to include a tray similar to the ones shown in the brochure. Luckily I had a small rectangular tray that would fit under the grain exit chute.

  • Very Happy!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    This was my first time using an oat roller. The unit is very solid & well built, & does a pretty easy job of rolling the oats with little effort & quickly. Well worth the price!

  • Well built, solid, and very easy to use!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    We grow food-grade naked oats on our farm and have been wanting to try flaking them for our own oatmeal. After researching grain rolling devices, the Marga came out on top. It is very solidly built and comes with a best-in-industry warranty. Since we use a separate mill to mill flour, this was not a concern with the Marga. Pleasant Hill Grain Co. has the best price on this mill, so we ordered from them.

    The roller arrived late yesterday, so we rolled oats for breakfast this morning. It is very easy to set up and use, and the results were wonderful! The Marga is extremely simple to operate, and we were able to get oat flakes at the desired thickness with little effort. We're looking forward to regularly using this roller with the oats grown on our farm!

    Kudos to the Pleasant Hill Grain Co. staff for doing a wonderful job in spite of the current difficulties!

  • Greatest Flaker
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I haven't tried to use it for flaking wheat or oat groats but it does an excellent job in cracking wheat and making Scottish style oatmeal. Their is a cheaper one out there that you can buy but this one is far superior! Would recommend it to anyone wanting a well made hand flaker.

  • Nice and impressive
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Out of the box looked like a well made device. Opted to use as an oat flaker since I have a dedicated flour mill for milling flour from grains. Ease of assembly and time to run a cup of oats through makes this machine a worthwhile investment.

  • Works as Advertised
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Unless you wish to make oat flour, don't use the number 5 setting. This unit delivers neatly flaked grain as the pictures show. Fresh oatmeal is superior to Quaker's and on par with steel cut. Flavor is a hand's down winner. Multigrain cereals cook as usual and can be lightly toasted for extra goodness. Fresh fruit, nuts, and half & half and you'll blast out the door to conquer the day!
