The Diamant grain mill is easily the finest mill we've tested. After analyzing dozens of mills, this one emerged head and shoulders above the rest. It is beautiful, high performing and, since it is made entirely of cast iron, it will far outlast lighter aluminum mills. Equally at home in the farmer's barn cracking bushels of corn for livestock or in the baker's kitchen milling fine flour for delicate pastries. If you are looking for a high quality, long-lasting product, the Diamant grain mill will not disappoint.
Helpful Hint: This mill will even do a decent job of separating sunflower seeds from shells. Run seeds through on very coarse setting - just enough to crack and break the shells. Then, blow shells away with fan or drop seed/shell mixture in a pan of water and skim off the shells. (Shells are much lighter than seeds.)

Galen Lehman, Proprietor, says, ""The Diamant is one of first products that comes to mind when I think of old world quality. It's MASSIVE. That means two important things. First, it makes grinding grain so much easier. Once the flywheel gets rolling, it practically turns itself! Second, it's a great disaster preparedness mill, because the way it's built means it will survive a direct hit from a thermonuclear missile.
""OK, so I exaggerated a bit on both counts. But, two things are true (no exaggeration). It turns easier and is built stronger than any other grain mill I know of.""

Grinds fast and fine - Extra large burrs churn out flour as fine as store-bought 20 percent faster and much more easily than any other hand-turned mill on the market.
Grinds virtually anything - Corn, beans and most oily materials can be ground without using a special auger. Grinds all grains, many spices, legumes, beans, nuts (except peanuts) and seeds without changing burrs! Make flour, meal, coffee, sesame tahini, cereal or animal feed. Specially engineered iron/steel burrs can grind just as fine as other mills' stone burrs and eliminates stone grit in your flour.
Easy to use:
Built to last - This mill hearkens to an earlier time when things were built to outlast their owner and be passed on to the next generation. Solid cast iron mill is one of the heaviest hand mills in the world. Non-toxic green finish with gold trim, force-feeding worm auger pre-cracks grains, three kinds of burrs add versatility, one-year warranty.
Note: After grinding oily or fatty foods, it may be necessary to demount the mill and clean the mill casing, cover and grinding plates. The mill comes with instructions on how to do this. If you are storing the grinding plates for several months in a humid environment, it's a good idea to coat them lightly with vegetable oil to prevent rust. With normal use, the grinding plates should last for many years.
