Advertised as “The World’s BEST Hand Grain Mill” the Wonder Junior Hand Grain Mill is the latest offering by the same people who bring us the WonderMill electric grain mill. The WonderMill has been a staple for home milling and is known for its quality and performance over the past decade. The Wonder Junior Hand Grain Mill continues in that quality tradition for The Wonder Mill Company.
The WonderMill vision is stated so well on their website
“It’s a pretty big claim to call your product “The World’s Best.” But we know that after you have used the Wonder Junior Hand Grain Mill that you will agree. For years hand grain mills have either been really cheap or really expensive. And unfortunately their ability to perform has been directly related to their cost. The cheap ones perform poorly and the expensive ones perform great. When we designed the Wonder Junior we set out to create the perfect storm in hand grain mills. And we wanted the versatility and high quality of the most expensive grain mills in a price range that was affordable to the homemaker. We found the perfect storm with the Wonder Junior Hand Grain Mill.
The Wonder Junior is a wonderful answer to the problem! Finally, a sturdy, well-built, functional, portable hand-cranked grain mill that does more than a superb job and does not cost a fortune!
The Wonder Junior is easy to use, quiet, clean and produces an excellent, fine flour (with no sifting and re-grinding required) and with minimal effort (even for a 10 year girl). For less money than the huge mills, the Wonder Junior produces excellent results comparable with mills costing several hundred dollars more. The Wonder Junior can vary the grind from cracked grains to bread flour with a simple adjustment of the knob making it versatile as well.
• portable, yet extremely sturdy and well-built for a reasonable price
• the metal body and quality powder finish is scratch and chip resistant
• can be washed with soap and water unlike many other mills
• stone milling heads are made from natural stone and require no maintenance
• stone milling heads can be easily adjusted using a simple knob to adjust the fineness of the flour, from pastry flour to cracked grains
• hopper is large and holds over a quart of grain
• hopper is attached to the mill body and will not fall off
• handle is extra-long (10 inches) which makes hand cranking easier
• extra-large bearings never need lubricating
• covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty (see Owner’s Manual for details)
In the Deluxe model, the Wonder Junior comes with steel burrs to grind oily nuts and seeds. The burrs also work well for cracking grains. Also included in the Deluxe model is the patented Super Grip Dual Clamp which prevents the mill from sliding while milling.
The steel burrs allow the Wonder Junior to be a complete all-purpose mill. The stones are excellent for milling dry grains and legumes, but the steel burrs will grind nuts and seeds. Think of being able to mill flax seed into meal for the freshest product. What about homemade peanut or almond butter? Corn bread and corn grits on the menu? Simply mill dried corn to the preferred texture. You can even grind coffee beans into fresh coffee. The Wonder Junior hand mill is not only strong and durable, it is extremely versatile and has features even many of the larger, more expensive mills do not have.
This one mill outperforms many other hand mills and even in some areas, outperforms the most expensive hand mills. The Wonder Junior Hand Grain Mill is perfect for small or large families, those who prepare for power outages or those who camp or travel. This is the one mill informed and prepared families should not be without.

I have been researching a great mill for my grains to be used in prepping. I could have opted for a cheaper one, but I want something like this to be reliable, and long lasting. Obviously, I can't speak for long-lasting, because I just purchased the product. But it does exactly what I need, with different grains. Spending this kind of money on a product I want to have wasn't easy, but necessary. And for what I got, the price is worth it. This mill is built to last. I have no complaints for what I've purchased, and my confidence in its' ability to last is reinforced by the mills' sturdy build. Paying a little more for something that is so good, and will undoubtedly last long, was worth it. Gives me peace of mind knowing I have a product that works with everything. Top notch grain mill that I am recommending to everyone who I know that is prepping.
For the quality, I guess it would be worth it, but it is the versatility that caught my eye. This is for more than just grains, which makes it great. Heavy, but sturdy, once installed you wouldn't be moving this around, so make sure you know where you want it.
A great mill
This is a great hand mill to have. It does a great job doing a quick, efficient job.
