This is a great flour mill.
Carol Flock
Well made unit, you have to mount it to a table, so be ready to drill some holes or buy the accessory wall mount attachment.

You can spend less on a cheaper mill and you will end up wasting a lot of money in the long run.

I bought this mill after a 30 minute phone call with the man who makes them. Very pleasant gentleman, whos gentle saleman's ways will talk your ear off, but you won't mind. This is a great mill! Our milled wheat is the best I've seen anywhere. The bread we made had the best texture I've ever eaten.

BUT...

This is not a mill you keep sitting around your kitchen, unless you live on a farm and have a closet to store it in. It is big and cast iron. Ain't nothing going to break on it. Don't worry about the warranty, your grandchildren will be fighting over it in 2090. I knew it would be heavy duty, but I was surprised how heavy that duty was. It comes with no base, so my son and I crafted a base that we thought would work well in the kitchen. We even glue rubber on the bottom in hope that it wouldn't slide. Not good enough. Even with clamps, it wanted to slide, which my wife wasn't very happy to see happen on Corian counters. Fortunately the rubber prevented scratches. This mill needs to be mounted PERMANENTLY on the surface where you grind; bolted to the table. If you keep it in the garage, keep it covered. We've had to clean it out by taking it apart (very simple, by the way) after letting it sit in the laundry room a couple of months without a cover. Gross mold isn't tasty.

Next, unless you buy the motorized kit, be prepared for a workout. Remember your physics when considering the extension arm. Yes, the arm gives you more leverage, requiring less strength. However, your work is the same. Half the force, but twice the radius of the circle. Remember that formula, C = 2*R*pi. You're cranking that lighter force over a much larger distance. I found it easier without the arm, once I got the momentum going.

The country living grain mill is simply the best. It's solidly built to last a lifetime and easy to use. You really can't appreciate this mill until you try a cheaper one. It seems a little pricy, but you get what you pay for. If you are serious about grinding your own wheat (beans, corn etc) don't waste your time and money on anything less. You will either be discouraged and quit or you will eventually upgrade to a nicer mill like this one.

I bought mine about a year ago because I made the mistake of grinding my own wheat to make bread. I had a cheaper (but still quite serviceable) mill Hand Grain Mill for beer making. The difference in flavor and texture of fresh ground wheat flour is profound. It hooked me immediately and I have never gone back. The trouble is, grinding wheat flour by hand can be a soul destroying task. My next purchase was an electric mill. BlendTec Kitchen Mill - Grain and Flour Mill. It worked as advertised, but it was LOUD and cleanup was a real chore.

I finally broke down and bought the country living mill and motorized it using a belt drive and electric motor. It works perfectly fine without the motor, but I am very lazy. If you want to hand crank it, an extension bar for the hand crank is a nice addition that will make the job almost effortless.

This is a genuine flour mill that produces excellent fine flour in a single pass...or you can open it up to make a courser meal or a cracked grain.

I bought my Country Living grain mill about a week ago. After thinking that I didn't need a costly mill to do what people have done for millennia, I realized that there has been profound progress in simple technologies. That's not to suggest that this mill is easy, that it will crank itself (although it will crank itself if you give it a motor), but the quality output versus frustration and difficulty input ratio is awesomely enhanced.

I appreciate the sense of sturdiness in this mill. Some things are merely heavy and somehow still manage to seem flimsy. This mill is fairly heavy, but the sense of sturdiness exuding from it belies its weight. However, the weight really matters little, because you're not going to be packing it around. The elegant lines and beautiful simplicity of this mill belong as a fixture in the kitchen, bolted securely to the counter.

I made some bread yesterday. Sprinkled in with the wheat in the mill's hopper, I added some dried rosemary and caraway seed. The resulting flour showed no specks of these spices, but the aroma was incredible. For bread I prefer a grind that is slightly more gritty than this mill will provide at its finest setting, so I backed it off a bit toward the course side.

I am planning on motorizing my mill, but there's one thing you should be aware of on this matter. The company specifies that the lifetime warranty is void if the mill is motorized by any means other than the Country Living motorization kit, which costs about as much as the mill itself. Since the warranty was one factor in my decision to buy this mill, I will have to deliberate on this for a while. However, the quality of construction and availability of spare parts such as bearings and plates seems to negate the necessity of a warranty anyway. It's one of those rare products that can offer such a warranty in trust that it will never be cashed in. This mill will define durability for your great grandchildren.
