LEHMAN'S OWN HAND-CRANKED GRAIN MILL DESCRIPTION
Grinds any grain, nut, seed, or bean - Long-lasting, cast iron burrs can grind just about anything.

Grinds finer than similar hand mills - Machined cast iron burrs grind all dry grains plus oily materials like soybeans, peanuts (peanut butter), coffee beans, sesame seeds (tahini) and some spices and small herbs.

Easy to adjust - Adjusts from powder-fine to coarse with a turn of a knob.

Durable - Bronze bearing hardened stainless steel shaft, double-ribbed handle and dent-proof plastic hopper.

Optional flywheel-Purchase the grain mill with the flywheel for smoother turning and less effort. Flywheel 16"OD, 10-1/2 lb.

Note: We call this mill our best because price is a factor for most people. If price is not a major factor for you, check out our Diamant grain mill. It is the finest mill we've seen anywhere in the world! It turns much easier and more smoothly, grinds faster and is more durable.

"We are really enjoying our new grain mill, made cracked wheat cereal the next morning, then whole wheat bread. We are looking forward to trying many recipes in our new cookbook, too."

"This mill works great, though you have to fuss a bit to figure out the tension on the stones; grind multiple times to get really nice texture fine grind. The reason I gave a 3-star review is because I just can't figure out how to set the mill and/or what bowl to use so that it catches all of the grain. More on the counter and the floor than in the bowl! A big mess to clean up. Small batches would be OK, but if you want to bake something like a bread recipe that requires pounds of flour, you'll need to grind in advance or plan ahead so you have enough time AND energy."

"Caveat: This is based on first use. Grain mill arrived in perfect order. My wife and I cleaned the mill per the instructions and put it to use this morning to grind some Prairie Gold wheat for pancakes. The mill ground the wheat with ease. Adjusting the burrs to the desired coarseness is very easy. Wow! The best pancakes ever! The mill was simple to use and very efficient. The grinding process was a great work out before breakfast. We are more than pleased with the quality and workmanship of the mill. Thank you Lehman's for a great product."

"I boiught this hand mill after attending a Country Living Seminar that taught living independent. My family spent time grinding the Hard Red Winter Wheat - so it was a family affair!! We made two large loaves of bread and had enough fresh flour for pancakes the next morning. NOTHING tastes as good as FRESH flour in food. We are looking forward to ordering different kinds of wheat to try in our cooking. Thanks for a great product - - this should last long enough for our grandchildren to use it!!"

"Arrived two weeks ago, used it three times. We ground different grains, all of different coarseness. The smoothness and consistence of the "grind" was perfect. The ease in cleaning is good. Overall simplicity and finish of this item is very good."

"I have been using one of these for a while now and have the following experience: 1) It is surprisingly hard to turn, at least without the flywheel, and I am a strong manual worker/carpenter, so that is saying something. 2) It is slow. If you have all morning to make pancakes, or only need a cup of flour for a muffin, it will be quick enough, but if you want to make all your own bread, tortilla, pancake, etc flour with this, you are gonna need to budget some time into your schedule. On the upside though, you won't need to do any upper body workouts anymore... 3)Construction wise, the paint is pitted and I would love to know what is in it as it is peeling off from inside the grinding chamber on mine and I like to know what I am adding into my diet. I am considering buying the flywheel to see if that improves things, I sure hope it will, 20 min to grind a cup of rye is below my personal standards, that means 40 min before I can even get the first cake on the griddle. As an avid hand tool user, I feel that Lehmans needs to go back to the drawing board with this one, and make quality a bit more of a concern, even if it means raising the price a little, frankly I find this a little embarrassing for an American made product. So to sum up, I think this is great for anyone who just wants to occasionally make some fresh flour, on a sunday for example, but for anyone who wants to have all their flour fresh and all their bread fresh, look elsewhere (tempting price, but don't buy twice)."

"Our first try with the Best Grain Mill was a wonderful success! We ground buckwheat groats and had the buckwheat pancakes on the stove within 20 minutes. So easy to use, easy to clean and solid enough to be worth the price. An excellent product!!"

"I purchased this grain mill about 10 years ago, I used it a little back then, and then we moved and I stored it for several years. I pulled it out of storage about 8 months ago. It still works great. I just purchased replacement burrs for the mill. That is what I am reviewing. The replacement burrs are wonderful. I like them better than the original ones that came with the mill. Great product. Thank you."
