The Victorio Manual Grain Mill (around $55 on Amazon) is a stylish manual grain mill for grinding your own flour.
It’s good for people who ..
- want to have freshest, most healthful and nutritious grains
- like to do something useful while they exercise away the pounds
- need to think twice before they bake
- would like to try out milling their own flours before investing in an electric grain mill
- It does what it says–it grinds grain
- Good blend of price and quality
- Good capacity
- The metal part of the machine is sleek and attractive
- It’s small and can fit in a drawar
- It wobbles a little. It would be better if it had a wider base so it would be more stable on the countertop
- The plastic hopper is cheesy looking and ugly
- The wooden handle is uncomfortable to use
- It only grinds when you turn it clockwise; it you turn it counterclockwise, it doesn’t do anything.
- It makes a little mess–I mean, you are grinding flour. But it’s probably no more messy than measuring out flour from a cannister.
This is a nice, good quality machine. As always, think carefully before buying any kitchen gadget because most just end up being a waste of time and money. If you bake a fair amount, are committed to home-milled grains and don’t mind some tedious manual labor, this might be for you.
