Great For Food Storage
Wheat is the Ultimate Food Storage Item
If stored correctly, wheat will last at least 25 years and probably longer. When you grind your wheat into flour it only lasts a few months before it goes bad. Keeping a wheat grinder with your wheat storage enables you to grind wheat as circumstances dictate and keep your long term storage intact. In addition, your freshly ground flour is more nutritious than store bought flours.
- Hand crank mills generate less heat and preserve the grain's nutrients
- Create more interesting and flavorful breads

Top customer reviews
- 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.
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.
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.
Not cool that I have to disassemble it and re-assemble it every single time I want to use it or make minor adjustments -- I already "lost" the washer twice! And this mill cannot operate without that washer!
I can't judge the quality of the grinding as I've never ground anything but coffee beans in a $9 electric grinder before, something I'm not about to try with einkorn wheat berries. So here are two photos so those in the know can see what you get with this thing.
