The worlds most advanced electric flour mill. It is designed for home use and will make fresh flour out of several kinds of whole grains. Discover the great taste of freshly milled grains. You can enjoy the great taste of natural whole grain flour anytime and built to last for years to come.
Some other tips include 1) Keep the unit clean (especially the cyclone cup). 2) Don’t overfill the unit: 1-3 cup capacity. 3) Clean/replace f-filter as needed; don’t push in completely, it should be about ¼ inch out of the machine (drawing in manual shows that you can see it on the outside of the machine).

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. After the latches crack, there is no firm seal between the top and reservoir, so a haze of flour can puff out the sides while the mill is operating. That doesn't result in a significant loss of flour, but it can cover nearby surfaces with flour dust. Still, for the price and convenience, this is a great addition to any kitchen.
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.
It is absolutely superb as a grain mill and for the money, it simply cannot be beat!
I would strongly recommend it as a purchase, and advise one to learn to ignore the noise, and handle it gently, and you'll come to love this grain mill.
In all I love it, just seems as if the manufacturing is not the best quality.
