I have been enjoying the ability to make my own flour over the past several months. I originally got a Wondermill electric grain mill and instantly fell in love.
I keep it in my kitchen and use it all the time. Here are some of the recipes that I have created with it:
- Gluten Free Ethiopian Injera Flatbread
- Gluten Free Vegan Pumpkin Muffins
- Gluten Free & Vegan Brownies
- Gluten Free, Vegan Maple Drop Cookies
- Gluten Free, Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies
However, I was also intrigued by the ability to make my own flour without using electricity, so I was excited to receive a Wondermill Junior Deluxe hand grain mill to try out. The hand grain mill can also grind more things than the electric mill can.
The Wondermill Junior Deluxe hand grain mill is a very high-quality, versatile grain mill that can:
- Grind flour faster than any other hand mill
- Crack grains or produce pastry fine flour with one pass
- Grind spices, herbs and oily grains (like flax or coffee)
- Make smooth and delicious nut butters
You can see everything both mills can grind on WillItGrind.com.
When I opened the box, this was the contents. The mill was mostly assembled. There were just a few things for me to do.
It was relatively easy to assemble the rest of the pieces. The directions were pretty easy to follow as well.
You need a sturdy table or counter with a longer edge to clamp the grain mill to, or a location where you can mount the grain mill permanently. It really does need to be mounted well, or it is more difficult to turn the hand crank. Our counter (pictured above) is definitely not the ideal mounting surface for the Wonderfmill hand grain mill.
I was definitely impressed with how sturdy the grain mill is. It doesn’t have any plastic parts, and the only non-metal parts are the nylon hand grips, clamp and adjustment knob. It is very well made and durable, and I don’t see that I’ll ever need to purchase another hand grain mill. (It does come with a limited lifetime warranty.)
I like that the Wondermill Junior Deluxe only weighs 10 pounds (that’s half the size of its more expensive competitors), so it’s easy to set up, then store again for later use. Having a hand grain mill is definitely a great idea if you’re looking to add to your family preparedness storage.
If you’re looking to add a hand grain mill to your sustainable kitchen, I recommend the Wondermill Junior Deluxe. They are available for purchase on Amazon.com. Or you can find a list of other dealers here.
