This Post Should've Been a Review of an Electric Grain Mill...

I don't have one of these. Grrr....
If you have been following my Prepping Plan, you might have noticed that I was planning on getting an electric grain mill this month. My Wonder Mill Junior Deluxe works very well and it only takes about 7 minutes of cranking to get enough flour for a loaf of bread, but let's be real. I have four kids, I homeschool, and I have other uses for my time. If I'm going to regularly grind grain, I really could use an electric mill.   

After I posted about my experience with my hand mill last month (read about it here and here), the president of a certain big name grain mill company emailed me and offered me a very nice discount and some freebies if I would try out and review their electric model here on my blog. I was surprised and delighted. The mill was actually the one I was planning on buying, and the discount would enable me to buy it this month.

Well, the grain mill company didn't follow through on their offer and, as a result, I still don't have an electric mill. Now I have to buy a different type of grain mill just so I can thumb my nose at this company. I'm looking at getting a Nutrimill, unless that company decides to play with my emotions, too.

What are your experiences with electric grain mills? Do you have any recommendations or know of ones I should avoid?


  1. Awwww, that's so messed up!! I was all excited for you when you said they were gonna hook you up. Man, that stinks!! I'm like you, three kids (another on the way), homeschooling, homesteading, and have the same hand mill and a rare extra moment to spend grinding wheat. I'd LOVE to get my hands on an electric mill. I'm also looking at the NutriMill. I've read lots of good reviews about it, but they are so dang expensive! I hope you are able to find one soon... I totally know how it is!

  2. Hi Kendra! I'm excited that you've checked out my blog because I certainly enjoy yours. Hopefully both of us will get an electric mill sooner than later. I've been keeping you and baby #4 in my prayers. :) Emily
