The Flaker Mill head flakes soft grains and is popular for fresh homemade oatmeal, making a hearty flake from oat groats (oats with the hulls removed) that's thicker and chewier than store-bought flaked oats. Hopper is 6 x 3.5 inches (dia. x height).
Oats are a naturally soft grain and more of our customers roll oats than any other grain in their Family Grain Mill flaker—but many other grains including wheat, rye, barley and millet can be flaked too, with a little preparation. These grains are hard and brittle, and would normally shatter rather than crush. To soften them, hold them under running water briefly in a strainer. Then spread the grains on a cloth or towel to let them dry over night or for 3-4 hours. This time will vary depending on the grain used, but a little experimentation will help optimize the process. The softened grain will crush and flatten, rather than shattering. At the same time this contact with water starts an enzymatic process which makes it easier for you to assimilate the minerals in the grain.

By Susan W. in MN on 6/19/2018 - Verified BuyerThis flaker is amazing. With the addition of the adapter for my Bosch Universal Plus it ran smoothly and turned out oat groats crushed to resemble what we all recognize as oatmeal but unlike store bought oatmeal these are fresh and bursting with nutrients. I sealed what I processed in a mason jar and used my vacuum sealer to keep as fresh as the day I processed them. Love this flaker and the Bosch adapter. Thank you for these great products!1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By Richard in Texas on 1/5/2018 - Verified BuyerI bought this on 1/9/2012 and it's been great, and functioned flawlessly. I started putting my Universal away in its cabinet, though, so I bought a FlicFloc manual flaker. It's definitely slower and if I have the Universal out I still definitely still use this fine accessory.1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By Christine F. in NY on 11/30/2019 - Verified BuyerI use the grain mill every week, for years. I always make our own bread. I added the flaker. Very nice. Easy to switch heads. I only grind enough for one meal. Great taste.Was this review helpful to you?
By Anne B. in OR on 10/4/2019 - Verified BuyerWe bought our flaker and grain grinder in 2004 and they have stood the test of time. Our daughter is now 22 and out on her own and requested her own flaker and grinder. Once you start flaking/grinding from whole grain, you can't go back. The flavor is just so superior.Was this review helpful to you?
By Ashley G. in OR on 3/19/2018 - Verified BuyerI've only used the flaker a few times so far, but it works great for oats. They are so tasty fresh milled! Easy to set up and use also.Was this review helpful to you?
