"I have two of these, one with aluminum rollers, one with nickel plated steel rollers. I think the differences between the aluminum rollers and the steel rollers is that the steel are nickel plated, making them smooth and less efficient at grabbing/capturing seeds. Running my fingers over the aluminum rollers feels like a rough cat's tongue or cockelburr grabbing the grain. It's aggressive- nickel plated steel is not. With my aluminum rollers I can roll on setting #3 a measured cup of soft red winter wheat berries in 1 minute and 4 seconds. With the steel rollers it takes well over 3 minutes. I would recommend the aluminum rollers and not waste my time on the shiny nickel plated steel version."

"I bought this, used it on soft red winter wheat and can't say how wonderful it is. I took it apart to see how it was made and having an engineering background was very pleased to see metal gears. I wanted to discover different and easier ways to consume the 1,500 calories per pound contained in wheat other than making bread which takes 4 hours at least. I rolled a pound or so of it, boiled it in water on my wood stove and three men ate it with milk and maple syrup. Took 30 minutes start to finish. It was wonderful. I recommend it highly. Those of you that think this roller will process wheat for bread, buy a proper mill. But buy this one too."

"I have owned this roller mill for several years. We grow our own hulless oats and barley and are very happy with it. It is very fast, we can roll enough grain for a breakfast for a family of four in a couple minutes. We cannot make flour with it, although a very small amount of flour is a by-product of rolling. It does crack wheat, but it comes out rather fine for cracked wheat. We've found no easier tool for processing our grain."

"We recently bought this mill and are presently using it to grind grains for our chickens. It works well, is easy to turn the handle, and is rather fun! We grew field corn and are grinding it with this. The only part that takes time is, to get more of a powder, you have to put it in over and over. I don't mind, but it does take time. "

"This mill has done a lovely job of rolling the oats from our local grain CSA into oatmeal. (The CSA has also borrowed it to demo that process at local food fairs - a great hit with kids because it creates a familiar product.) It's compact, quiet, and easy to turn. I especially like the setting that creates thicker flakes, but it will also do thin flakes similar to grocery store oatmeal. On the remaining setting, it will create a meal texture. Other grains can be rolled, and I'm looking forward to trying that. The grain sometimes stops flowing through the hopper and needs a stir with a finger to get started again. But overall, I'm very pleased with this mill."

"There were no instructions from the manufacturer for rolling grain with this mill. This is what worked for me: 1 c. soft white wheat in a jar with 1-1 1/2 t. water. Let it sit overnight, capped, and in the morning, roll the grain. I used an adjustment of 2 1/2 for rolling the grain. After rolling, I "sifted" it a little with a coarse seive before storing it in the cannister. I've also sprouted some hard red wheat, let it dry (but not quite enough) and rolled it. That taught me to watch the moisture level in the grain a little better. Compressed air cleans the body of the mill after the cleaning with the included brush. I'm sure there are more user friendly grain mills out there but I haven't the time or funds to search them out. I'll keep this one but I do so reluctantly. Andi in TX"

"I ordered this product to crack wheat for me. I was excited to read that it also made flour. It however did neither. It seemed to roll the wheat similar to that of oatmeal and no matter what setting I put it on, it didn't seem to make a difference. So happy that Lehman's have a fantastic return policy. It did go back. I can not recommend this Roller Mill"
