“Point of difference is something all our customers strive to achieve, but when you can do it so simply, it makes the process very exciting and sparks the creative side of your brain into overdrive” David Van Rooy
We can guarantee you the Mockmill range will expand your thinking and bring your innovative ideas to life, well it has for us anyway. We have run spices and cinnamon sticks through the mill for our fruit buns, peas, corn and other legumes for various sourdoughs, and created a delicious range utilising oat, long grain rice and chia seeds.
At Vanrooy, we have been using our machine to mill and create incredible gluten free flour here in The Test Kitchen and the best part is, unlike most gluten free flours on the market, ours has zero additives and zero stabilisers! There are other health benefits to making bread the old-fashioned way, as well-known dietitian Joanna McMillan explains: “When you stone grind the wholegrain instead – as we would have done in days gone past – and especially if you do this yourself at home, the result is a more rustic bread with a significantly higher level of an array of nutrients, much higher fibre and a far lower GI.”
Better hurry though, the extreme demand and popularity for the Mockmill range has meant we only have a handful of units left! You can secure yours online or by calling us on 03 9768 3300
