As spice mill is called both a milling operation , the different types of spices processed as a kitchen appliance or panel device with manual or electrical drive to spices if required freshly schroten - such as the pepper mill .
The processing of the spices takes place with appropriate machines; black and white pepper are first processed with the roller mill. This results in coarse meal (split grain) from the peppercorns, which are then processed with the "Perplex". Ground pepper (fine product) is made from the shot.
In the case of kitchen appliances mills are open (z. B. poppy mill ) and closed- grinder (z. B. pepper mill , coffee grinder ) distinguished. In the closed mold, the material to be ground is first placed inside the machine before the grinding process is triggered mechanically (e.g. with a hand crank) or electrically. In the open form, the material to be ground is continuously fed into the grinder during the grinding process. To avoid injury, shorter ground material is a Mühlenplunger pressed toward the mill.
