Which grain mill is right for me?
So many great grain mills – but which ones should I buy now? We want to help you find the right grain mill for you.
There are a few crucial differences. Let's find out which grain mill best suits your needs.
Of course, in principle grain mills always work the same way: you put whole grain in the hopper, this is processed into flour by the ground stones below and reissued. Simple. But grain mill is not the same as a grain mill. They have different performance rates, i.e. they process different amounts of grain per minute, their hopper holds different amounts of grain, they can process different grinds, the housing can be made of different materials and it can be operated by hand or electrically. These are probably the main differences. Of course, there are also differences in price, weight, size and other factors. But let’s take another look at the most important questions you should ask yourself if you should choose a grain mill.
