The Messerschmidt Grain and Flour Mill Attachment (formally Family Grain Mill) will connect easily on to this solid hand drive and mill all kinds of flours to use to make your bread or any baked goods.
Mills a Variety of Grains- The Messerschmidt Mill will grind any whole grains into coarse cracked grains or steel-cracked cereal, to medium cornmeal textured flour, to fine flour for breads or cakes. The grinding cone is infinitely adjustable. The milling heads grind a wide variety of grains and seeds including wheat, oats, corn (not popcorn), soybeans, rye, rice, barley, spelt, flax, buckwheat, millet coffee, kamut, quinoa, and sesame seeds. This mill will also grind different spices like coriander, pepper-corns, and some chopped, dry, non-oily herbs and spices. Nutrients are also preserved as the Messerschmidt grinds cool.
Grinds Quickly and Easily - It takes about 2 minutes to mill one cup of flour when using the hand mill or about one and a half minutes if using the electric motor which has 150 watts. One cup of wheat will make about one and half cups of nice fine flour. The hand base is easily to turn compared to other hand operated grain mills and usually requires a lot less time to produce a nice fine flour. We have tested this mill against other hand mills that we sell and this one definitely makes the finest grind of the flour. The large capacity hopper will hold 5 cups of grain.
Quality German Construction - Manufactured in Germany, the Messerschmidt mills use the finest quality materials in their construction. We first brought them directly into Canada in 1988 and the units we sold then are still in use. Built from durable high-carbon steel and high quality polycarbonate that withstand years of use, they will last you a life-time.
Easy to Clean - All the components of the Messersschmidt mills come apart quickly and will clean up easily. Most times we just use a pastry brush to brush away the excess flour and then wipe clean with a dry cloth. Even the milling heads can be taken apart in a few seconds to clean as well. An extra bonus for this system is that it is dust free.
Preserves Nutrients : Similar to a pepper grinder, the milling head has cone-shaped carbon steel burrs that crush the grain without creating high heat that comes from friction-type mills. Heat is an enemy to the nutrients in your flour, and destroys the vitamins and minerals we want our fresh ground flour to have. Stone mills can add grit and glaze over with grains that have extra oil in them, but the durable steel burrs in this system will not have either of these problems and will produce years of service. The Steel burrs are also easy to replace if needed.
What Does it Mill? - Basically the Messerschmidt grinds any grain and some seeds such as flax and sesame. We can make wheat flour, corn meal flour, oat flour, rye flour, barley flour, rice flour, spelt flour, flax flour, buckwheat flour, millet flour, coffee, kamut flour, sesame, and more. The mill will also crack grains to an infinite variety of sizes from "Cream of wheat" texture down to rice-size particles.
Grinds Quietly- The Messerschmidt Cereal and Flour Mill is a very quite mill and you hardly notice it is working.

Quick Compare Guide: The Messerschmidt Flour and Cereal Mill is much easier to turn than most hand operated grain mills. Will not grind as fast as an impact chamber mill such as the Nutrimill, or quite as fine of a flour though still fine enough for bread, but is much more versatile, as you can grind anywhere from cracking grains to flour with the turn of a knob. Oily grains/nuts such as peanuts and sesame will not hurt the Messerschmidt mill, as they will on an impact chamber mill such as the Nutrimill Classic Grain Mill. Will Grind approx. 1 cup in 2 minutes w/ motor, and slightly less by hand. Though the Messerschmidt Mill will not grind as fine as some of the impact chamber mills, this is much more versatile, and the easiest to operate hand mill we have ever tried.
