We grind oats to flour and make waffles. It takes patience but it works really well. If youo have bulk grains, and the power goes out, a solar oven and your back in business. We make Ezekiel Bread and it is perfect for grinding whole grains for the bread mixture. Grind your own corn bread meal, works great.
I use it a lot more than I thought I would190 of 363 people found this review helpful
I have been impressed with how durable this mill is. I like to make my own bread and the quality of this mill gives me very fine, excellent flour. We bought it for emergencies but I find my kids think it is fun to use, so we have ended up milling our flour with it nearly every week. It does take a little bit of work, but that's what the kids are for, right? Anyway, great mill.
Pretty light, but durable1 of 3 people found this review helpful
The picture makes this look bulky or heavy I think, but it is actually pretty light. Be ready to mark up a section of your counter though installing it.

This can help create the Ezekial bread I've been wanting to make. I'm glad it is available in a hand crank! Maybe the Ready Store will sell Ezekial mix one day in a value bucket?
Great little grinder and much more affordable than other ones and still works well. I use this primarily to grind what and sometimes corn for polenta/grits. Havent had an issue yet. Takes a little muscle to use, but well worth having over a battery power or electric one that will not be useable if there is no power or battery life left.
Better than expected
I was a little worried when I got this but was just wanting a good mill to have as a backup. This will never grind wheat down far enought to make excellent cake flour in my opinion but for making pancakes, waffles, bannock, or any other breads it's great. Does take time, it's not a fast grinder.
Good for the price
Who knows when you will need this. It will definitely be a great addition to your preparation.
This grain mill is available from competitors websites for almost $30 less....however, this is a high-quality mill that will be crucial for when the power goes out. Mill your grains twice for a finer flour.
From the Ready Store:
Kate, we offer a price match on all products so give us a call and we will take care of you. Also with us since we offer free shipping on order over $100 we often are less expensive than others when you compare final TOTAL costs instead of the pre-shipping and tax amounts.
Questioning strength of mill
I just recieved my mill today and when I took it out of the package and began to read the instructions I am not very sure that this is worth the price. The instructions say that it cannot grind corn or beans and I truly am not wanting to have to buy another grinder. I am just trying to get started on all my prepping and am dissapointed that I paid way more for this than what I found on another site for half the price after I ordered this product. I guess I will have to wait and see if it will work better than the directions seem to say.
