The Family Grain Mill (FGM) is a highly versatile grain mill which is
suitable for almost any grinding or milling task that you would need a grain
mill for. Its grinding is 'infinitely' adjustable with a dial adjusting
dial so it can make fine flour for baking bread, or it can mill fresh
cracked grains for your morning cereal, for example corn grits, steel cut oats,
or can even make a finer cereal if desired. Please note that for fine flour, you
need to mill the flour in two passes.
The Family Grain Mill is much more than just a grain mill as all the
components are modular meaning that you could start out with just the Hand Base
and grain mill attachment for which will give you a high quality grain mill at
the inexpensive price of $129.95. Later you could purchase the the motorized base
and combine it with the grain mill attachment you already own for a terrific
electric grain mill. As you desire more functionality, you may purchase, the
grain flaker to make your own oats for cereal, the vegetable fruit processor
attachment which can slice and shred vegetables, and also nuts, fruits, cheese,
the meat grinder attachment, or the Wheat Grass/ Fruit/ Berry Press which
can make your very own wheat grass. Rather than purchasing individual
attachments later on, you can save money by purchasing multiple attachments with
a motor base as your initial purchase, for example the motor base, grain
mill attachment, and flaker.
For any combination purchase of a motor base and an attachment, you will
also receive a free hand base, which can come in handy if for example you are
milling grain bread, while your kids want to make some oats for breakfast
using the hand base and flaker. The hand base clamps very quickly to a table or
counter and will attach without marring the surface it is attached
The hand base has
a hand crank for power without electricity. With this you can mill flour in a
manual mode with relative ease as compared to other manual mills on the market.
The 1.1" thick plywood hand base is made out of 17 layers of wood. This is how
the base looks with the mill attached.

Black Beans, Kidney Beans. Coffee beans may be ground as well,

minutes when functioning with the motor base, or 2 to 4 minutes when operated
manually with the hand base. The Grain hopper has a 5 cup capacity. A few
points of interest in comparing this mill to others is that the mill's
steel burrs mill your grain without excessively heating up like with other
mills, so your grain always stay in a safe temperature range
during milling. Also the steel burrs when they do wear out after you have gotten
long usage out of your Family Grain Mill can be replaced. Lastly some of the
mills on the market create a fine dust everywhere during mill, not the family
grain mill and unlike the vacuum cleaner level of noise that you hear with some
other electric mills, the Family Grain Mill is relatively quiet. The motorized
base is powered by a high quality Bosch Motor. The Family Grain Mill has a
lifetime limited warranty. This covers the hand base, mill and
flaker, but not the steel burrs as eventually from use they will need
