I have briefly outlined advantages and disadvantages of each of the electric grain mills available from our 20 years of experience with mills. Keep in mind, all of these mills are high quality and produce excellent, fine quality flour; there is no "perfect" or "best" grain mill. Each mill represents exceptional quality, reliability and will provide many years of service.

The "best" grain mill, is the mill that meets your criteria for price, noise level, storage space
requirements, warranty, and versatility.

KITCHEN MILL - Advantages - Large flour catch pan- holds 21 cups flour, strong
reliability record, stores very compactly (if storage space is at a premium at your house you will appreciate this), produces high quality, fine flour, mills all dry beans and grains, mfg in the USA. Six year warranty. We have sold thousands to satisfied customers over the last 15 years.
Disadvantages: Smaller grain hopper than some mills, Noisier than other mills, does not crack grain.

NUTRIMILL -Advantages - Large flour catch pan, life-time warranty, one piece
construction, large grain hopper slightly quieter than K-tec but has the same motor and milling device.
Disadvantages - Higher price, does not crack grain, takes a larger amount of storage space, mfg. in

WONDERMILL - Advantages - Formerly known as the Whisper Mill, slightly quieter than K-tec, large hopper capacity, six year warranty, high quality flour, grain feeds well into milling mechanism
Disadvantages- Smaller capacity flour cannister (12 cup), does not crack grain, must turn on mill before adding grain so the mill will not jam.

FAMILY GRAIN MILL - Advantages - versatile, can be used with handbase or electric motor base, adjustable from fine to course mechanism so mill will crack grain, can be used with Bosch Universal, German made, very quiet while running, takes minimal storage space, very economical.
Disadvantage- flour may not be quite as fine as the mills above, slower production of flour than high speed mills.

We hope to be of service to you very soon!
