- Solid build - 3/16" aluminum, single piece body - nothing to break.
- One moving part (grinding head), seems pretty strong
- Easy to clean, seems rust-proof
- Does not damage counter-tops (it's clamp-mount), due to a rubber pad and good pressure distribution.
- Grinds predictably, not super-dust-like fine, but fine enough.
- Can grind many things (nuts, seeds, etc) as longs as they are fairly small (see Cons)
- looks nice
- Thin enough to be stored in a kitchen drawer, fully assembled
- Manual (Requires effort) - but that's understood.
- Very slow with flax seeds (must be set to very coarse - back nut off a lot), but does the job.
- Large grains or nuts (eg almonds) need to be chopped first - they simply don't fit through the teeth.
- Not easily suited for use with a handheld drill (Yes I thought about making it electric for bigger jobs). Can probably be done but you'll need to clamp the square head (see photos) so a big chuck is needed - you can't just use a socket wrench as you need to apply a pulling force to it... Can't fault it for this, it was hardly a design goal.
In short, it's worth it if you need 2 cups or less, infrequently. With hard grains I was able to do about 1 cup per 2 minutes of cranking, with millet and similar grains it is faster.
Finally, there is a certain pleasure in connecting with your food in a way an electric motor probably won't.
The grinder is very simple to put together and fairly easy to use. Be aware that you may have to tighten the clamp occasionally as you use the grinder, but it is not difficult to do. I wouldn't attempt to grind large amounts of flour at a time unless you want your arms to hurt, but it is perfect for grinding a few cups at a time for a recipe- and kids love to help out!
Also, while the coarseness of the flour can be varied, but it will not produce a superfine (cake) flour.
One last note: Although my flour from my electric grinder is a finer flour than I can get out of this grinder, this grinder still grinds flour fine enough for bread.
That being said, the Victorio mill is just OK in it's operation. It does what it says it will do. On the finest setting it mills fine-enough flour for my quick breads. It IS hard work, but I expected that anyway. I did not, however, expect to have to use a large spoon to continually push the wheat berries down into the grinding mechanism. I think the opening to the mechanism is too small. It is a REAL HASSLE whem dealing with dried corn. It does grind it well, but it's difficult getting the corn down into the grinding mechanism.
If you are looking to purchase a mill to "try out" fresh-milled grains, this will suit you just fine. I could possibly recommend it as a back-up in case of power outage, although there are much better models available; but as a primary means of obtaining fresh-milled grains, even with only occasional use, I cannot recommend it.
Plan A: I bought all the ingredients needed (several varieties of whole beans)put them in my food processor to make it quickly turn into flour (the instructions said it would only take 10 seconds). Twenty-five minutes of pulsing and not seeing any powdery flour - only whole beans, I knew I had to do something else. So I tried to sprout the beans. After 3 days of rinsing beans, I created a loaf of Ezekial Bread that could easily hold a small yacht in place.
Plan B: Time to look for a flour/grain mill. I didn't want to spend a fortune so I looked at all the flour mills for under $100. I saw the Victorio Hand Crank Grain Mill, read the reviews, some favorable, some not and decided to give it a try. I LOVE IT! Yes, it's manual and it took me about 20 minutes to crank out 5 Cups of beautiful fine flour but I also got my exercise in so it was worth it.
Do I recommend this product? Absolutely! By the way, I did bake my bread and it smells heavenly! Also, it's small and stores so easily (the box is about as wide as one of my cookbooks).
Buy it, you won't be sorry.

I use it to grind corn, and with the help of a chopstick, it makes great cornmeal.Published 3 days ago by RevTurtle
It's an awesome grain mill. The only downside is that if you grind the wheat kernels two finely the first time the auger get's stuck. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Jose Aguilar Cuevas

Generally unimpressed. It mills flour okay but it takes a painstaking amount of work to get any substantial amount of flour out of it. Read morePublished 1 month ago by C. Allen
