Topic: OT - Tassenhaus "ricer" (7 msgs / 195 lines)
1) From: Brian Kamnetz
I saw this listing on eBay"
"This sale is for one antique rotary ricer.  It is 9 inches high and
has a clamp screw for fastening onto a table.  It is white and has a
label which says " Tassenhaus".  The first letter could also be an F
or a z...".
Question? What is a "ricer"?
Brian

Zassenhaus Grain Mill.
Used for rice, even regular rice (and not jsut instant rice).
The second picture is your confirmation - Rel Label, Lion, Black
Umbrella - and the old Zassenhaus script...
Here's the description from their website, regarding grain mills:
Das Genießer-Kornmahlwerk:
Das Geniesser-Kornmahlwerk unserer Korn- und Getreide- mühlen bietet 1
Jahr Garantie auf das original Präzisions-Stahl- mahlwerk. Auch hier
sorgt, wie bei unseren Kaffee- u. Espresso- mühlen, robuster
Spezialstahl für eine extra lange Lebensdauer. Die zentrisch gelagerte
Spindel führt das Mahlgut konstant über die sog. "Schnecke" an das
Mahlwerk, so wird das Mahlgut  gleichmäßig und fein geschroten. Mit
leichtem Dreh an der Stellschraube fixieren Sie stufenlos den
gewünschten Mahlgrad und erhalten das mit Vitalstoffen optimal
versorgte Korn für leckeres Gebäck, köstliches Brot oder das
kraftbringende Müsli
Sorry, I don't speak German...

I have an old ricer for making baby food.  Doesn't look like that. 
Typically, a ricer extrudes foods to smaller pieces.  Picture forcing a
boiled potato through a coarse seive to make the beninnings of mashed
potatoes.  This looks more like a meat grinder.
FWIW,
Jason

Something like (with an assist from google):
You like/enjoy using the grain mill. It has a 1 year warranty on the
precision steel burrs. The snail/spiral on the burr distributes the grain
evenly. Consistent feed assures an even & fine grind. More durable than the
espresso & coffee mills, made with a special stronger steel.
It has a stepless set-screw adjustment. Adjusts to grind for leckeres (a
pastry that uses a very fine flour), delicious bread flour, or Müsli (ver=
y
coarse).
Good design & made with strong materials to make a mill that lasts.

5) From: Michael Wascher
Found it on EBay!
It isn't a coffee or grain mill. It works like one of those rotary cheese
graters, except this is bigger & clamps to the table. It is usually used to
grind nuts. On special occasions or holidays my mother borrowed one from a
friend up the street. It was used to grate nuts into a coarse meal for
strudel filling, or into a fine flour for use in cookies that were made onl=
y
for Christmas.
It should come with several drums, you install the drum with the preferred
degree of coarseness. There should also be a wooden plunger with a concave
bottom. You used it to push the nuts against the rotating drum. Stops in th=
e
side of the chute stopped the wooden plunger from contacting the rotating
drum. Splintery strudel just isn't very appetizing!

Well, that's interesting! So a "ricer" isn't used to process rice, it
is used to make other things LOOK LIKE rice!

I wonder if you can then use the "rice" to clean your other Zassenhauses...
