A LOW-IMPACT, TABLETOP REFINER FOR BEAN-TO-BAR AND NUT-TO-SPREAD MAKERS
Our DCM Melanger 15 (15 lbs/7 kg batch capacity) is designed for artisan food makers and those who want to take their brand to the next level, creating award-winning chocolate, superior-tasting nut butter, pralinés, spreads, and bases for ice cream and gelato. The DCM Melanger 15 was developed in collaboration with makers over four years and field tested for two. Our goals were to ensure maximum durability, energy efficiency, and ease of use, all in a machine with a compact footprint.
Low-impact refining allows for maximum retention of nutritional value while at the same time preserving the shelf-life of the product. This makes the DCM 15 ideal for processing raw ingredients with high nutritional value.
Built to the highest quality standards and manufactured in the USA, the DCM Melanger 15 is custom-built and features high-quality, all-natural granite stones that refine particle size down to less than 20 microns for a perfectly smooth result. The body of the machine features a food-grade, Inox stainless steel construction for maximum durability and ease of cleaning. The solid brass Top Lock Knob is not only sturdy, but allows for fine pressure control of the roller stones.
The DCM Melanger 15’s high-efficiency, energy-saving, continuous-duty motor is engineered specifically to run 24x7x365 days. Its direct gear drive mechanism (with no belts or chains) makes for very quiet operation. The unit operates based on load and consumes only the electricity needed, resulting in significant savings to the maker.
