Family Grain Mill with Handbase
Quality Construction: Manufactured in Germany by Messerschmidt, the Family Grain Mill is built with high carbon steel and premium Lexan polycarbonate (football helmets and industrial safety shields are made of Lexan) with great attention to detail. It's a durable grain mill capable of a lifetime of dependable use.
Nutrient Preservation: The milling head's conical steel burrs shear grain without friction, avoiding the heat created by most grain mills – heat that can destroy many of the nutrients in your flour. And unlike stone burrs, steel burrs won't gum up or glaze, and don't add grit to your flour. The Family Grain Mill's high carbon steel burrs are long lasting and easily replaceable.
Fast & Easy to Use: A cup of fine flour is produced in just two minutes in hand operation, or a minute and a half with the Bosch Universal motor base. Because it doesn't grind with friction, the FGM's hand operated base turns easily, much easier than most hand operated mills. Overall time/effort is four times less than required by most hand mills that produce a coarser flour. Hopper has generous 5 cup capacity.
Grinds Herbs and Spices in Small Quantities
Fast Cleanup & Dust-Free Operation: Family Grain Mill components remove quickly for cleaning. The grain mill head disassembles completely in five seconds, so it's quick and easy to have your mill ready for its next use. And where many mills create a cloud of flour dust to settle everywhere, the FGM operates dust-free.
Quiet: The Family Grain Mill will be very easy on your ears.

Also cracks grain to any size -- you can set the adjustment dial to any size from flour or meal to cereal grind or cracked grain.
Warranty: Manufacturer's 5 year warranty. (excluding replaceable burrs)

Quick Compare Guide:
The Family Grain Mill is much easier to turn than most hand operated grain mills. Will not grind as fast as an impact chamber mill such as the Nutrimill, or quite as fine of a flour though still fine enough for bread, but is much more versatile, as you can grind anywhere from cracking grains to flour with the turn of a knob. Oily grains/nuts such as peanuts and seasame will not hurt the Family Grain mill, as they will on an impact chamber mill such as the Nutrimill. Will Grind approx. 1 cup in 2 minutes w/ motor, and slightly less by hand. Though the Family Grain mill will not grind as fine as some of the impact chamber mills, this is much more versatile, and the easiest to operate hand mill we have ever tried.
