    Question folks: What are some less expensive options out there to the Country Living Grain Mill? I know that CL is the best mill out there, but is there anything out there that is a viable alternative that isn't junk?

    How about this model?

    Any other ideas?

    That was the first mill I bought, though mine had orange plastic.......it will do "in a pinch".....but it's VERY slow.....a cup of flour is 1/2 hour or more of grinding.....you'd be worn out trying to grind flour for a family.

    IF you think you really will be grinding flour, bite the bullet and buy a lifetime tool....the Country Grain Mill.

    This will give you an idea of the pros and cons of a few of the models out there, personally we have the Nutrimill and have used it for all of our needs for 2 years and it has run flawlessly, and lets just say our 4 kids enjoy their home ground flour. We have been looking at that model as a non-electric backup.

    I highly recommend the Country Living Grain Mill. Save yourself the time and energy and money ('cause you'll likely purchase it eventually) and go with it.

    These guys pretty much have the best price on it. I've ordered from them many times and they are good people.

    Peace out!

    I bought the Family Grain Mill. it was about $130 altogether, hand crank. I was pretty happy with it. I hope to get a Country Living Grain Mill when I can afford to, but for the price this was a pretty good deal I thought. I've only been using it to practice old old old school cooking on the weekends. ;) It works pretty well.
