How the press works
Prepare your ingredients
The first step is to add a little bit of drinkable water to the cereals (the quantity of water may vary depending by the cereals used but it is always a very small percentage). Let them soak for at least 30 minutes, until they are perfecly moistened and then put them in the machine’s feeding group.
The press must be switched on. Once it reaches the correct temperature the press will automatically load the requested quantity of grains in the mould, based on the set recipe.
Heat and pressure
High pressure is generated thanks to the hydraulic system; pressure and heat are the keys for starch gelatinization and expansion process. The cereals transform.
The hydraulic pump reduces the pressure, the moulds give space to the cereals that instantly expand inside the shape, thus forming the actual rice cake.
When the moulds open the moisten inside the grain, which has turned into steam, is released.
The rice cake is then ejected from the machine through the designated slide, while fresh grains are loaded in the mould, ready for a new cycle.
