What is the life time of the stones?

The life time of the stones cannot be expressed in years. It rather depends on the amount and the type of grain that you are milling. Chickpeas and rye for example are harder than wheat. Additionally, the stones last longer when using the mill mainly on a coarse setting. You can order new stones from us but before you have to consider an exchange of stones you can expect to grind approximately 1500kg of soft grain with a PICO and even 2000kg with a GRANO / VARIO.

You do not need to exchange the stones as soon as you experience the milled grain to be progressively coarse at a giving setting. You can adjust the position of the stones up to 3 times. For details on how to do that please contact us.
