Family Grain Flaker, Meat Grinder & Processor
The Family Grain Mill offers multi-grain flaking, meat grinding and food processing.
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. You can see an interior image and more details on the.
Our customers use their grain flakers more to make fresh oatmeal from oat groats than for any other use, and love the delicious difference they get with just-rolled.
A variety of other grains can be flaked with the Family Grain Mill, including wheat, rye, barley and millet, with a little preparation. These grains are normally dry and hard. 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 at least 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 flatten nicely into flakes, similar to commercially available rolled oats. At the same time this contact with water starts an enzymatic process which makes it easier for your metabolism to assimilate the minerals in the grain. Tip: Be sure to open the flaker attachment and remove any residue on the rollers after processing dampened grain, to prevent possible corrosion.
The Food & Meat Grinder is available with a variety of disk sizes, to grind and mince almost any type of food you can think of.
The Food Processor slices and shreds vegetables, nuts, fruits and cheese with interchangeable stainless steel drums.

By Rochelle H. in IN on 2/11/2016 - Verified BuyerThis is my second purchase of a Family Grain Mill. I bought the other one about 8 years ago, and replaced the burrs 3 times. I use it about 2-4 times per week. I like the flaker option, and have been making my own granola. I also like the hand-crank option, and have used it 4-5 times when we were camping, or when the power was out. It is easy to use, and not too tiring. The motor is a bit too loud, and I wish it had a finer grind, but overall, it is the best mill for my needs.5 out of 5 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Beth J. in TN on 4/12/2016 - Verified BuyerEnjoy milling my own flour. I've experimented with a variety of gluten free nuts and beans. Great product and very easy to use and clean.2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Janine W. in KY on 4/15/2016 - Verified BuyerI have enjoyed grinding wheat berries with this mill. It has other attachments that increase its versatility in the kitchen. The only reason(s) I didn't give it an excellent rating are as follows. I was surprised at how flimsy the electrical cord is. Even though I haven't had a problem at all, the cord doesn't have a heavy duty quality to it, or a thick commercial type of covering in the event a knife falls on it (stored below the knife wall). The little marks indicating the fine- or coarseness of the grain are confusing. It is difficult to tell exactly what the degree of fineness will actually be. Also, the grain if I grind a lot warms up. While that hasn't been a problem for me, my subsequent research shows that is an issue for many serious bakers. I do not use it frequently. I am more of an occasional baker. All in all, I am happy with this mill.1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By Nancy C. in PA on 4/13/2016 - Verified BuyerThis is my first mill so I have lots of experimenting to do, but so far I have no real complaints. I really like the fact that I can now grind my own flours for my homemade bread and make my own grain flakes with the flaker. I am having a good time seeing all it can do. It will more than pay for itself in no time at all.1 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Kenneth A. in CA on 4/13/2016 - Verified BuyerThis mill works great. I use it to grind wheat berries so that I can make bread at home. With the hand mill I can even make flour when there is a power outage. I haven't used the meat grinder yet, but I'm looking forward to trying it out.1 out of 2 people found this review helpful.

By Lance H. in WI on 4/12/2016 - Verified BuyerWe got the hand base combo that was available with the mill and flaker attachments as well as the adapter to use on our kitchen aide mixer. Works wonders. Tried with the hand base just to test and was fast and easy. We use on the kitchen aid normally.1 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Megan G in ME on 4/12/2016 - Verified BuyerI have used this mill mostly to make spelt flour (occasionally coffee beans). It works well; I can set it up and leave it to grind. It does get a bit covered in flour dust during use. It is SOOO easy to take apart and clean.1 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?

By Edye S. in CA on 4/11/2016 - Verified BuyerVery good quality and performance. I only gave 4 stars because of the toxic perfume smell coming from motor and cord.1 person didn't find this review helpful. Did you?
By Debbie F. in UT on 7/17/2017 - Verified BuyerMy brother and his wife are on their second well-loved flaker. They have been talking about it for years, so I finally got on board. Here is the recipe for the best breakfast:
2-1/2 Tablespoons of oat groats flaked
2 Tablespoons flax seeds and 1 Tablespoon of chia seeds ground in a coffee grinder
1 Tablespoon of almond flour
1 Tablespoon of coconut flour
Fruit and nuts as desired (I like raisins, chopped dates, and slivered almonds)
Milk (cow's, almond, rice etc)
4 drops of stevia
We eat this raw and fresh (or I freeze individual servings in ziplock bags) and it is AMAZING!!!!Was this review helpful to you?
