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).

You don't have to be a prepper to appreciate the value of an electric grain mill. Anyone who wants to provide a healthier alternative to store-brought breads for their family but needs to stay within a budget will love the Blendtec Mill.
There are several mills to choose from, most of which are honestly much more than I can afford. Blendtec solved that problem for me. It's been the perfect mid-range, cost-effective mill for my needs and I couldn't be happier. I paid close to $180 for this mill when the average is over $200 and even upwards of $400 for other grain mills, though admittedly the prices seem to have fallen on the others since I purchased this one.
I've used this for hard red and white wheat and soft white wheat. There are a range of settings for a more coarse flour to a pastry flour setting. I've used them all with success in making hearty and lighter wheat bread and waffles. I'm having fun experimenting with my whole wheat recipe books. This mill is easy to operate and clean. It also comes with an extra filter. It's very fast. I can get 2-4 cups of flour in under 2 minutes.
The biggest con is the noise. This is an understandable issue and one where I have to admit that you're probably getting what you pay for as there are quieter mills on the market that come with a higher price tag. Also, you can't do nut butters with this mill. I have noticed that some flour escapes during milling. It's not a lot and not too big of a deal to clean up but it is an extra step. I give this product a 4-star rating out of 5, only knocking one off because of the noise and flour escape.
1. Use earplugs: This mill is loud, as expected with its direct drive motor.
2. Use a towel or guard over the top, but don't restrict air flow: When the hopper has just a little grain left, the heavier grains like rice tend to shoot back out the infeed port. Placing a towel or a guard over the top of the hopper will prevent small rice bullets from shooting out.
3. Use a small paint brush or pastry brush: Use this to tap the sides of the collector bin so the flour that is sticking to the sides falls down during the grinding process. It can also be used to clean off the mill when grinding completes and "scrape" down the sides of the collector bin. The key to no flour mess is to tap the sides of the collector before removing the top portion of the mill and to use the brush to easily clean off the mill and collector bin. The brush can also be used to nicely feed the grain into the infeed port and get any stuck grain until the port cover.
I measured the temperature of oat flour and brown rice flour after running the mill continuously for 2-3 minutes, and both measured 122 deg F. This is too hot in my opinion. I can get a nice fine grain on the lowest grain setting, so my flour isn't gritty.
Some things I do not like about this mill:
- The infeed port tends to clog, especially with softer grains like oats. That paint/pastry brush is a must for this problem.
- The "clips" that keep a good seal with the collector bin seem like they will break if you are not careful, and the hopper/motor is heavy..
- The port cover is not large enough to prevent the grain from shooting out of the hopper.
- The air ports tend to get grain in them; they should have been moved to the other side of the hopper.
For improvements, perhaps somehow incorporate a handle so that users do not accidentally break off parts. Perhaps a better guard to keep grains from flying out. It is already a very good product so these improvements would make it even better.
