I've had the Back to Basics Amazon.com: Back to basics Hand Grain mill: Hand Grain Mill Grinder: Kitchen & Dining for a few weeks now and am happy with the unit. A real objective report may be beyond my scope because this is the first and only grain mill that I've ever used. The mill was purchased from Emergency Essentials (beprepared.com) part # IN FP M100 for the paltry sum of $59.95 on sale. Here is a picture of the unit from their catalog: The mill's frame is made of aluminum, seems to be cast, with all of the edges polished and rounded off. The grinding bit is stainless steel, with a plastic (most likely delrin) bushing and bearing keeping it in place. The interior of the grain hopper is smooth and has no edges, shelves, or protrusions for the grains to hang up on. The base is hollow cast aluminum, one piece design like the frame, with no visible seams. It attaches to a table or countertop with a rubber capped screw clamp. You adjust the fineness (or courseness) of the flour by tightening or loosening the handle's attachment screw. It seemed a little cheesey at first, but after grinding a little bit it seemed like a natural way to accomplish the task. When you back the attachment screw out completely, the whole grinding bit comes out and you can wash it if you so desire. I was able to grind a little over 5 cups of flour (from twice cleaned animal food grade flour) in less than five minutes. The amount of effort required to grind the flour is really miniscule. How much flour do you use in a day? Grinding is easy. The biggest drawback to the unit seems to be the construction. Yes I could see having problems with the bearings, leading to the grinding bit touching the side of the case. You would think that you would be able to feel that happening; aluminum is much harder than wheat grains. The screw clamp seems like a likely weak point because of it's one-piece design. I could see permenantly attaching the mill to a countertop by thru-bolting it down with a screw and very large washer. I'd have to be careful not to break any of the reinforcing webs under the top of the base. Or just designate a place for it on the countertop so you don't have to remove it each time you are done. The biggest advantage to this unit is that every part is available as a spare, and the price of the hand mill is low enough to allow whole units to be bought for spares or replacements. Could this unit last me the rest of my life when used every day? Probably not. Could three units? Most likely, if not abused and parts replaced when needed. We used the fresh flour to make a large blueberry pan muffin, since it was much easier and faster to prepare, and due to the fact that we were still getting blueberries from our bushes at that time. It turned out wonderful. We were warned that natural wheat flour has no preservatives, so it wouldn't last more than a few days until beseiged by mold; but unfortunetly we ate it all by the second day and were unable to verify.[rofllmao] Next batch we are going to use honey instead of sugar as a sweetener. I think it's time that my family get back onto the path of wholesome foods the way God intended us to.
