Grain Mills
For centuries, grain has been recognized as "the staff of life." Modern industrial processing techniques strip virtually everything healthful from our foods — but you can restore nutrition and character to your diet, and the right place to start is with quality grains, freshly ground in your kitchen. We've chosen the mills below as the finest on the market for their performance, versatility, and durability, and the letters we receive from our customers about their new mills have consistently affirmed their outstanding qualities and value.

Nutrimill Grain Mill

Illustration of the Nutrimill's components. The Nutrimill is easy to use. It's also very quick & easy to clean up, with self-cleaning milling heads!

We’ve used the Nutrimill almost daily now for over a month. The machine does what you say it does, is clean and easy to maintain. We’re perfectly satisfied. Above all, we’re very pleased with your courteous and honest service to us. I’m such a critic that when I praise something, it merits high praise indeed. I wouldn’t bother to write this if I was not so favorably impressed. -- Ed Casey, Sacramento CA

The Nutrimill Grain Mill

  • Super fine OR coarse flour, your choice! The Nutrimill uses a high speed impact chamber to create flour from grains and beans, a well-proven milling method. But the Nutrimill has raised the bar for grain mills with new features and abilities users have asked for -- a combination of features found in no other mill. The first of these is the ability to grind super fine flour (much finer than any other impact mill) and also adjust to produce the coarser flour grind you need for perfect corn breads. Its impact grain milling heads mean you'll have no stone glazing. Nutrimill has a 400% range of adjustment from fine to coarse, ten times greater than other mills! We've tested the Nutrimill in the Pleasant Hill Grain kitchen and confirmed that this grain mill turns out incredibly fine flour, quickly and easily.
  • Great Capacity: The award for largest-capacity modern grain mill belongs to the Nutrimill, which allows you to grind up to 20 cups of flour at one time! The Nutrimill's grain hopper and flour bin are perfectly matched: Fill with grain once, and get 20 cups of flour (or you can do any smaller amount.)

  • Convenient, Powerful & Fast: Just pour grain in the hopper, turn the Nutrimill on, and its powerful 12 amp, 1-3/4 hp motor does the rest, quickly producing your choice of fine, medium or coarse flour. Nutrimill's impact grinding mechanism is self cleaning, and Nutrimill operates dust-free -- so making flour won't mean extra housecleaning later! Easy-grip handles and light weight make the Nutrimill very easy to handle.

  • Multi Grain & Bean Milling: Nutrimill grinds wheat (both hard and soft), whole oat groats, rice, triticale, kamut, spelt, dried pinto beans, popcorn, split peas, buckwheat, barley, rye, millet, sorghum, dried mung beans and soybeans. (The Nutrimill isn't suitable for herbs, spices, tapioca pearls, oilseeds like flax or sesame, or fibrous materials.)
  • Trouble-Free: The new design of the Nutrimill's impact chamber allows you to put grain into the hopper before you turn it on with no risk of plugging the mill (something which happens with other grain mills.) Even if you stop it while it's milling, the Nutrimill will restart again with no trouble.
  • Protects Nutrients: Nutrimill keeps your flour at temperatures (typically about 118° in our testing) that protect the nutrients in your grains. Its new airflow design make the Nutrimill the world's coolest-running impact mill.
  • Quiet: The Nutrimill's maker (Kitchen Resource of SLC, Utah) calls the Nutrimill the world's quietest impact mill, based on measurement with a decibel meter. Some people say the Whisper Mill (shown below) is quieter. When we ran them side by side and asked several people what they thought, opinions varied. We think that's because everyone's ears perceive various sound pitches differently, and these two mills do have slightly different pitches. Our opinion is that there isn't enough difference to shake a stick at. Both sound like vacuum cleaners and are far quieter than the earlier "first generation" impact mills.
  • Easy to Store: Nutrimill's trim design fits into your kitchen easily. Keep it on your countertop for instant access, or store it -- either way, with an 11.5" storage height and 11" x 13" footprint, the Nutrimill stores compactly.

  • Future manual option: The Nutrimill's manufacturer plans to introduce an optional hand-operated grinding module for the Nutrimill in the future, a low speed design having stainless steel burr gears that would allow you to grind to a flour texture or crack grain (to any coarseness) without electricity.There is no ETA yet for this option so we don't know when it might become available.
  • Lifetime Manufacturer's Warranty: This great warranty includes the Nutrimill's stainless steel milling heads! The
    Nutrimill is made in Korea by Kitchen Resource of Salt Lake City, Utah.

  • Electrical: 110-120V, 10A, 50/60 HZ
  • Nutrimills have been in our customers' kitchens for almost a year and a half now, and they love 'em. Can we send one to you today?

Thanks for your patience as we remodel!
  • Illustrated: Flaker Mill on Motor Base, Grain Mill on Hand Base, and detached Veg. Processor. For a mill that offers either hand or electric operation, the quality and performance of the Family Grain Mill make it an unbeatable value.

  • Modular Design: Any component of the Family Grain Mill ("FGM") may be purchased either individually or in cost saving, multi-component packages. You may purchase the hand base or the electric drive base (or both), and all accessories will interchange between the two, locking in place easily with a twist of the wrist. (Hand base is available free during reduction sale.) Optional adapter will allow you to drive Family Grain Mill accessories with a Bosch Universal mixer. Click here for more images of the hand base and its strong table-edge clamp.

  • Versatile Multi-Grain milling: The grind is infinitely adjustable, from fine for bread flour, to medium for "Cream Of Wheat" style cereals, or coarse for steel cut or cracked grain. The milling head grinds corn, soybeans, wheat, oats, rye, barley, rice, spelt, flax, buckwheat, millet, coffee, kamut, quinoa, and sesame (doesn't grind popcorn or tapioca pearls.) It will also mill some chopped, dry, non-oily herbs and spices. The Family Grain Mill grinds cool to preserve nutrients. Large 5 cup hopper capacity.

  • Additional Functions: Available options for the Family Grain Mill are listed in the table below. They include The Vegetable Processor which slices and shreds vegetables, nuts, fruits and cheese with 3 included stainless steel drums. The Flaker Mill head flakes soft grains and is popular for fresh homemade oatmeal, making a hearty flake from oat groats (oats with the hulls removed) that's thicker and chewier than store-bought flaked oats. See an interior picture and more details on the Oat Flaker Mill attachment here. The Food & Meat Grinder is available with a variety of disk sizes. And the Food & Meat grinder serves as the platform for the Berry Press, the Sausage Stuffer, and the Hard Cheese & Nut Grater.

  • Grinds Herbs & Spices in small quantities: Click for more Family Grain Mill info.

  • Quality Construction: Manufactured in Germany by Messerschmidt, the Family Grain Mill is built with high carbon steel and premium Lexan polycarbonate (football helmets and industrial safety shields are made of Lexan) with great attention to detail. It's a durable grain mill capable of a lifetime of dependable use.

  • Nutrient Preservation: The milling head's conical steel burrs shear grain without friction, avoiding the heat created by most grain mills heat that can destroy many of the nutrients in your flour. And unlike stone burrs, steel burrs won't gum up or glaze, and don't add grit to your flour. The Family Grain Mill's high carbon steel burrs are long lasting and easily replaceable.

  • Fast & Easy to Use: A cup of fine flour is produced in just 2-4 minutes in hand operation, or 1.5 minutes with the electric drive. Because the Family Grain Mill grinds with a cutting action rather than with friction, its hand operated base turns much easier than most hand operated mills. Overall time/effort is 4X less than required by most hand mills that produce a coarser flour. Hopper has generous 5 cup capacity.

  • Fast Cleanup & Dust-Free Operation: Family Grain Mill components remove quickly for cleaning. The grain mill head disassembles completely in five seconds, so it's quick and easy to have your mill ready for its next use. And where many mills create a cloud of flour dust to settle everywhere, the FGM operates dust-free.

  • Quiet: The Family Grain Mill will be very easy on your ears.

  • Easy Setup, Compact Storage: The Family Grain Mill motor base is free-standing in use, while the hand base clamps quickly and securely onto a table or counter edge, without marring.

Finest Flour - Lifetime Warranty - Grainmaster Whisper Mill Flour Mill

The Grain Master Whisper Mill

  • Fine Flour, Fast & Easy: The heart of the Whisper Mill is its innovative Microburst milling chamber. Scores of durable stainless steel fins spinning at high speed literally explode grain to produce a very fine flour. This "impact milling" technology has all the advantages of the old stone flour mills but none of their problems; there's no gumming, jamming or glazing, and the GrainMaster Whisper Mill won't overheat.

  • Quiet: Unlike earlier impact mills that had extremely loud, painfully high-pitched sound levels, the Whisper Mill sounds like a normal vacuum cleaner in use. Oftentimes customers tell us they have one of those other mills, and are buying the Whisper Mill because they're just sick of the sound level; many have been wearing ear protectors to mill their grain, and some have been milling outdoors.
  • Powerful: Whisper Mill grinds nearly 100 lbs. of flour per hour. Its strong 1-3/4 h.p. motor is maintenance-free. Whisper Mill runs on standard 110 volt current. (220v model available.)
  • Multi Grain & Bean Milling: The Whisper Mill mills wheat (both hard and soft), whole oat groats, rice, triticale, kamut, spelt, dried pinto beans, dried green beans, popcorn, split peas, buckwheat, barley, rye, millet, sorghum, dried mung beans, soybeans, dried corn and chick peas. Whisper Mill is adjustable from normal fine bread flour to finer flour for pastries. (The Whisper Mill isn't suitable for herbs, spices, oilseeds like flax or sesame, tapioca pearls, or fibrous materials.)

  • Protects Nutrients: Whisper Mill's impact milling heads mill flour at a cool, constant temperature (about 120° in our testing) to keep all of the fresh whole grain nutrition in your food.

  • Easy to Use: Just turn it on, put up to 8 cups of grain in the hopper, and the Whisper Mill quickly gives you 12 cups of fine flour in the storage container, ready to use. And the Whisper Mill won't create a cloud of dust in your kitchen.

  • Self-Cleaning: Whisper Mill heads are self cleaning: Just wipe the grain hopper with a cloth, rinse the separator lid, and the Whisper Mill is clean.

  • Easy to Store: Whisper Mill body is 12" high and has a trim 8.5" footprint, so it doesn't take much storage space. The flour bin's connector tube pops out of the mill, swivels over and tucks into a recess in the lid. Solid lid goes on flour bin for flour storage.

  • Electrical: 110-120V, 10.5A, 50/60 HZ

  • Lifetime Warranty! (And this unsurpassed warranty includes the Whisper Mill's Microburst milling heads!)

Which grain mill is the best?

The answer really depends on your individual needs...

If you don't need a non electric grain mill, then an impact type mill is ideal. They're very fast and they grind all of the dry grains, most beans, and some non-oily seeds, into very fine flour. If they require any adjustment, it takes literally a second or two to do. The original impact grain mills of 15-20 years ago had a high-pitched (ear splitting!) shriek, but the new impact mills have a nice, civilized sound level. The best way to describe it is to say that they sound like vacuum cleaners. If your electric vacuum doesn't offend your ears, then you'll get along wonderfully with a modern impact mill. Impact mills never glaze over like stone burr mills can, and unlike stones, the milling heads of the impact mills we carry won't break and virtually don't wear at all -- if you could ever possibly wear a set out, they'd be replaced free of charge by the manufacturer.

So then... which impact grain mill? Here are some thoughts that may help you choose the grain mill that's right for you:

The Ultramill is the least expensive of the modern impact grain mills. It has a 20 cup flour capacity and features a pre-cracking chamber that lets you add grain before starting the mill, without plugging. The fineness of grind is excellent for most breads, but the Ultramill's fineness is not adjustable. Removing its flour bin requires some finger strength and dexterity -- it's no problem at all for most people, but we do not recommend it for those with arthritis. The Ultramill is louder than our other models, but it does not have the high sound pitch of the old, original impact mills. It also requires a bit more cleanup. Given its price, however, the Ultramill is a good and serviceable grain mill.

The Whisper Mill is noticeably quieter than the Ultramill and its grind is adjustable between settings of "fine" and "finer" (the range of adjustment is 40%, and it will not do any coarse grinding.) Its separate flour bin has a 12 cup capacity.

The Nutrimill is the first really new impact grain mill design in fifteen years. The Nutrimill combines the most popular features of earlier designs, and adds some great new features that will make your baking easier and more fun. The Nutrimill's 20+ cup flour capacity is 2/3 greater than that of the Whisper Mill. It has a pre-cracking chamber, so you can add grain before turning the mill on if you wish (doing so would plug the Whisper Mill.) The Nutrimill is the first impact grain mill ever made that will produce either a coarse ('meal coarse") or fine grind, and its finest setting produces finer flour than any other impact mill. Its 400% range of adjustability not only makes Nutrimill ideally suited for every kind of wheat bread, but also for perfectly textured cornbreads and the lightest whole grain pastries. "Everything you'd want in the perfect grain mill" is an apt description of the Nutrimill, and coming from a maker with many years of experience in grain milling, you can expect a lifetime of excellent service from the Nutrimill grain mill.

The Family Grain Mill offers the choice of hand or electric operation. With the Family Grain Mill you can buy the hand base alone, or the electric base, or both. Despite its modest price, the Family Grain Mill is a high quality tool (unlike most hand grain mills on the market), and it's very versatile, offering the ability to grind flour, crack grain for cereals or those nice "chewies" in your breads, grind meat, stuff sausages, flake oats for fresh oatmeal (have you ever tasted fresh oatmeal?), even process vegetables.

The Country Living Grain Mill (see the Country Living Grain Mill) is a very heavy duty, hand operated, steel burr mill that's really built for the long haul. It produces very fine flour as well as adjusting to coarse settings for cracked grain. It features exceptionally large, high carbon steel burrs and it turns easier than most hand grain mills, particularly with the available "power bar" option. A motor drive option also is available for the Country Living Grain Mill.

All of these grain mills are quality machines that will provide years of enjoyable service, time savings, and healthful nutrition.
