Cleaning the mill is relatively easy. All that is required is to pull out the foam filter and shake the flour out it, take off a plastic cup from inside the reservoir and shake it out, and wipe the reservoir clean. The internal parts of the mill require no cleaning (they're billed as self-cleaning).
The only problems I've had with the mill in 3 years of at least weekly use are with noise and the plastic latches. This is a very noisy appliance, and earplugs are a must if you will be in the same room while it is operating. The weak spot in the mill are the plastic latches that hold the top motor/hopper assembly to the reservoir. Since there is no other handle or place to grip the heavy top, one naturally pulls on the side latches to lift the motor off the reservoir, and this makes the side latches crack.Read more ›
It is noisier than the newer mills, and produces more flour dust in the room (though it isn't bad - I've seen far noisier and "dustier" ones). The small hopper is a bit inconvenient, as is removing the mill head to get to the flour in the flour pan, as is the small hole the grain feeds through (you have to pretty much handfeed corn and larger beans to keep them flowing).
The biggest problem we had was the clips that hold the head to the pan would crack, and on one of our mills the underside of the head developed a pretty big crack. This mills were still usable, but you couldn't get as good of a seal (to keep down that flour dust).
The company was great to work with though about getting it fixed - and these problems occurred after a few years of use. So it's a good mill, but not the one I'd buy today. Me and My House now uses and recommends the NutriMill.
However, we have had to replace the plastic covering twice due to the clips cracking or breaking completely off. My mother had the same problem with her old one, and so I was extra careful removing or handling the top according to the pamphlet instructions. They cracked anyway; the second time it cracked all the way to the vent. Only on the second fix did the receptionist tell me that if you lift the latch opposite the side where the overflow cup is, and then turn the motor like a hinge, does it minimize that problem (this is not explained in the instruction manual). However, it only took one person to struggle with it for it to break again.
IF YOUR CLIPS HAVE CRACKED: They will replace the plastic covering for free - that is under warranty. So there is no need to deal with flour spraying all over your counter. However, you do have to pay postage to ship it if you do not live near the store. They will pay to ship it back to you.
If not, removing and replacing the motor as described above definitely makes a difference.
The mill has served us well apart from this problem, but we will likely be getting a different one because I am really tired of dealing with this issue every six months.
We have used it moderately, but heavily when we do. The quality of the flour is really good and it takes about 1 1/2 minutes to grind up 2 cups of grain. The flour does get warm. When I am putting in more than 3 loads of grain, I give the machine a rest.
It works very well with your standard grains like wheat and spelt. Corn is to hard for the mill. To do corn, I "crack" it with our KitchenAid mill attatchment then run it through the Kitchen mill for a finer consistency.
I have yet to see any differences with the settings. If there are, I've missed it. I have the mill set on the second to lowest setting most of the time.
The major issues are the noise and the clips. The machine is LOUD. I use ear plugs when I am grinding. The clips are key to keeping flour from blowing everywhere, and they are made of plastic. I have been super gentle with them and they have been working for 3 years. You have to press very hard to get them to snap on and make a good seal. To release the clips, I take a wide flathead screwdriver and place it under the middle of the clip and SLOWLY turn it until the clip releases. I then pull up the top using the attached clip on the other side as a hinge until it releases by itself.
This is a Budget mill that works well. If it is treated properly, it will last.
