Before buying your Vegan Milker, make sure that you have carefully read the next four points:
HOW TO USE THE MORTAR
Once you’ve blended the seeds with your hand blender:
Raise the filter above the milk in the jar and – this is VERY important – don’t press with the mortar straight away.
If you do so, pulp will spill everywhere as shown in the video.
There are two ways to press the pulp:
Method 1 – Use a kitchen spatula or spoon to stir the milk and pulp mixture until most of the liquid has leaked. Then, you’re free to use the mortar.
Method 2 – Slowly drop the mortar on top of the milk until the liquid has leaked and you’re left with mostly pulp. Then you can press with the mortar to release the last few droplets.
In case you’ve blended the seeds in a blender or food processor.
First, pour the liquid inside the filter attached to the jar. Then, you can use method one or two.
WOODEN MORTAR DETAIL
Our mortar (made from saustainably-sourced wood from forests in the north of Spain) can have knots like the picture.
This is a problem of aesthetics alone, as it doesn’t impact performance.
The process is carried out this way since creating completely smooth mortarts would involve throwing away 40% of the wood used, which isn’t a sustainable option we can get behind
HOW TO CLEAN THE FILTER
Check out this real-time video to see how to clean the video in less than 1 minute.
Some milks tend to be more slimy, such as oat, flax and coconut, so they need to be cleaned with warm water.
If you want your filter to last a lifetime, follow the tips you’ll find on this post.
FILTER MESH DETAIL
STEEL MESH LINE
The dark line running through the inside of the filter IS NOT RUST, but the result of welding the mesh to link all the parts.
You’ll find a thorough explanation on this post.
THE MESH IS NOT SMOOTH
The plastic part and the mesh aren’t glued, but injected instead. This means that the steel part is embedded inside the plastic. Once that the injection process is finished, we run a quality control test to make sure that the filter will last a lifetime. This involves pressing the steel mesh with a finger, and is also thoroughly explained in this post.
