The NutriMill Wheat Grinder is THE best grinder around! My sister-in-laws gave it to us as a wedding gift, and I’ve been using it f or 6 years! I was just getting started into food storage and wanted to make my own homemade bread… you know, becoming a New Wife and all… Other than getting my “Bosch”… it’s been the BEST thing that ever happened to me!
*In the kitchen appliances section of course!*
I pretty much use my NutriMill wheat grinder for corn meal (for homemade corn bread) and wheat flour (homemade bread). I’m sure there are LOTS of other uses I know nothing about. I usually grind a lot of wheat at a time, then put the rest in the freezer for easy use later for pancakes/waffles, or muffins. FYI: When you grind wheat it loses nutrients the longer it stays out. Putting it in the freezer allows the nutrients to “stay” longer.

Pros of the NutriMill Wheat Grinder
- I can fit 4-8 cups of wheat to grind at a time… I honestly haven’t specifically measured it…
- There are multiple settings to adjust at your will. There is a knob for adjusting the “course-ness” and how fast/slow you want the grain to go.
- Grinds very fast! Especially compared to my hand grinder
- I love how hands free it is.. this allows me to get other things ready for the recipe while the grain is grinding.
- Expensive… although totally worth it if you use wheat flour a ton!
- It’s loud. I don’t mind, but my kids do
- I personally feel like it can only grind about 4-6 cups at a time before it starts over heating. I’ve never TESTED this out, to push it to the limits… too scared to try!
- It has many settings, but I’m not able to just “crack” the wheat like I can with the hand grinder.
- This is a large appliance which will most likely end up sitting on your counter. It’s too tall to fit on most shelves in cabinets, so it eats up counter space.
- Turn on the grinder BEFORE putting grain it… something about it being better for the machine… I NEVER did this the first 5 years… and it still works. I probably should have read the instructions better…
- There are two types of settings. High/Low which is how fast the grinder will allow the “food” to go through. Fine/Course which is how thin/thick you want your grain to be ground… does that make sense?
- To grind nice soft flour, I set to High and Fine.
- For corn kernels for corn meal, I set to Low and Mid Course/Fine
If you are planning on making homemade bread every 1-3 months, I TOTALLY recommend buying this! My mom just got one this past Mothers Day last year and LOVES it! She’s been using some old one for the past 15+years and is SO amazed at how versatile it is!
