Spectra 40 Grinder

The Spectra 40 holds and can refine approximately 40-45 lbs of chocolate.

The unit has two black granite “stone” rollers that rotates at over 100 rpm on a granite slab. This creates tremendous shear and reduces the particles of sugar and cocoa to the smoothness we expect in modern chocolate, somewhere in the 1-30 micron range. Please read the Grinding section about how to use it and it’s limitations.

And as it used to be for the smaller Melangers, until Spectra gathers more data, there is not the standard 1 year warranty for these units. If they arrive with a defect, that is one thing, and are covered, but long term use for chocolate making is currently not covered and no warranty is implied for their suitability for making chocolate. For this reason also, we currently can not accept returns for non-defective units. We don’t like this either, but it is the policy Spectra has set.

Please see the completeWarrantyfor more details.
