Stone melanger used for cocoa processing and nut butter making. The Spectra 11 has several changes including a new ventilated and non-rotating lid that allows you to view and to open the lid while running.
The central connector has been redesigned to be able to lift out the stones easily and the drum made leak proof. A double scrapper arm arrangement ensures faster performance. Tension of the granite stones can be adjusted to obtain different grades of shear at different stages of grinding and for different ingredients. The machine features double granite roller stones that rotate over a granite base. This creates tremendous shear that reduces the cocoa nibs to fine chocolate liquor with a particle size of the order of less than 15 microns.
We have made several key enhancements to the stone grinder to make it perfect for Chocolate, nut butters and other food processing.
Our stone melanger can be used to make nut butter from peanuts, almonds and many other nuts and many other grinding applications.
The finest Stainless Steel and pure Black Granite stone (real stone) components make for a durable and outstanding quality machine.
The tension from the stones can be fully released for the conching cycle without grinding further, such that the cocoa liquor is continuously exposed to air without grinding it further. All models have this feature and there is no need for a separate model or attachments to buy. There is no need to buy any additional add-ons or attachments, as all are included.
In addition, this grinder has all the features that make our products stand out a powerful motor, black granite grinding stones for a long life of 10 years or more, and an impact resistant body. Several special features and enhancements have been incorporated to make this stylish melanger perfect for chocolate making by both the amateur and professional alike. For your peace of mind, the unit has a ONE YEAR warranty from the date of purchase.
The Spectra 11 works great as a Nut butter machine allowing you to make healthy nut butter.
The Spectra stone grinder range can produce healthy, fresh nut butter – retaining all the valuable essential enzymes and nutrients. As a nut butter machine the Spectra’s use a simple grinding process, requiring no need for prior roasting or additional oils up to a 26 Kg batch size.
Making Stone ground nut butter with a Spectra machine involves using in-built grinding stones which create minimal friction, allowing the temperature of the nuts to be maintained at low levels throughout, preserving the precious nutrients and flavors whilst achieving a silky smooth texture. There is no need to add salt, refined sugars, trans fats or preservatives.
In contrast – general shop-bought nut butter is processed using blades that chop up the nuts, generating more heat which can alter the taste degrade the key vitamins and healthy oils and generally contain salt, sugar, hydrogenated oils (trans fat!) and preservatives to make it more shelf-stable, resulting in a lower nutritional quality product.
Stone grinding your nut butter helps keep the healthy unsaturated fats, proteins and minimal carbohydrates naturally contained within the nuts – which is good for your heart, helping keep your cholesterol levels in check.
