Blendtec - The Kitchen Mill By KTEC - Electric Grain Grinder - Grinds Wheat, Barley, Rye, Rice & All Grains - 6 Year Warranty
We love this grain mill! It is a super durable and inexpensive option compared to other electric grain mills. Discover the great taste of freshly milled grains. We sell this mill, but we also use it! We use it to make delicious fresh baked multi-grain bread and ezekiel bread. The taste of freshly milled whole grain bread can't be replicated with any store-bought or processed flour.
Mills all grains
whole wheat, rye, oats, rice, buckwheat, millet, corn, soybeans, barley, triticale, spelt, lentils, beans, chickpeas & more. You will be delighted with the results. The Kitchen Mill was not designed to grind spices, sugar, high oil content seeds (sunflower, sesame, flax, etc..) nuts, coffee, dried fruits and the like. Makes flour from fine to coarse. The coarsest setting makes flour about as coarse as cornmeal. It does not do cracked grains.
Whole grain flour is healthier than processed store-bought four that is generally milled from the endosperm of the grain, which contains mostly starch and a little protein. Whole grains contain natural fiber. Diets containing adequate amounts of fiber help you stay slim and avoid many of the diseases caused by fiber deficiency.
A great additon to food storage
Having whole grains in your food storage doesn't make much sense without a reliable way to convert that grain into nutritious usable flour. The Kitchen Mill is the perfect compliment to stored grains.
A quality investment
The Kitchen MillTM is made of the highest quality materials. The heart of the mill is a patented, stainless steel, MicroneticTM milling chamber. The mill is the most advanced way to mill grain. It has all the advantages of the old stone mills but none of their problems. There's no gum¬ming, jamming or glazing. Your Kitchen MillTM will not overheat. Each mill uses a 1.8 peak horsepower, 120 volt motor. It is permanently lubricated and will provide years of trouble-free service.

Good, Cheap, and Loud
We have used it moderately, but heavily when we do. The quality of the flour is really good and it takes about 1 1/2 minutes to grind up 2 cups of grain. The flour does get warm. When I am putting in more than 3 loads of grain, I give the machine a rest.
It works very well with your standard grains like wheat and spelt. Corn is to hard for the mill. To do corn, I “crack” it with our KitchenAid mill attatchment then run it through the Kitchen mill for a finer consistency.
I have yet to see any differences with the settings. If there are, I’ve missed it. I have the mill set on the second to lowest setting most of the time.
The major issues are the noise and the clips. The machine is LOUD. I use ear plugs when I am grinding. The clips are key to keeping flour from blowing everywhere, and they are made of plastic. I have been super gentle with them and they have been working for 3 years. You have to press very hard to get them to snap on and make a good seal. To release the clips, I take a wide flathead screwdriver and place it under the middle of the clip and SLOWLY turn it until the clip releases. I then pull up the top using the attached clip on the other side as a hinge until it releases by itself.
This is a Budget mill that works well. If it is treated properly, it will last.
