Our Polishing Grain: De-Dusted & Pre-Measured
The granulate we use is derived from corn; it’s fully biodegradable and non-hazardous. It is very absorbent and gives a perfect finish to stainless steel and silver cutlery. Over time the grain requires replacing to keep the machine delivered a perfect finish every time. We recommend every 4-8 weeks, depending on site usage. Our UV lamp keeps grain and cutlery germ and bacteria free (including Covid-19).
Our grain is de-dusted, pre-measured and packaged into bags with instructions written on the front to ensure grain changing is as simple as it can be. The bags come in 2.5kg, 3.0kg and 5.0kg bags.
Our grain is perfectly safe for both use and disposal and is hypoallergenic (it is safe to use in gluten free restaurants. Buy Grain online HERE

How can I tell if I have enough grain in the polisher?
If the polisher becomes slow then you might not have enough in the tank. Top up with a pint of grain or empty out and re-fill with the correct measure. If you have had the grain in the machine for a while do not top up the grain, insert a full fresh bag.
Why is my grain spitting out of the cutlery polisher with the cutlery?
If you don’t allow your grain time to dry or heat up to temperature, the grain will swell in size and won’t filter back into the tank. Leave your machine running for 20 minutes before use to ensure grain is dry and warm and leave it for another 20 minutes after you have finished using the machine for the day.
Why is the grain getting stuck in the cutlery?
The cutlery has not been washed correctly, grease remains on the cutlery and the grain then sticks to this
The grain is wet; before and after each shift the grain must be allowed to dry, so leave it running without cutlery going through it. Before and after every use, leave the polisher running for 20 minutes. This will make sure the grain is dry and at the right size. If the grain is saturated with water it will expand and get stuck in forks.
