  • Kitchen Mill Grinders

    Kitchen mill

    The Kitchen Mill is made of the highest quality materials.  The heart of the mill is a patented, stainless steel milling chamber.  The mill is the most advanced way to mill grain.  It has all the advantages of the old stone mills but none of their problems.  There's no gumming, jamming or glazing.  It will not  overheat.  Each mill uses a 1.8 peak horsepower, 120 volt motor.  It is permanently lubricated and will provide years of trouble-free service.  It weighs 8 lbs and is 8” wide, 10” high, and 10” deep.

    Warranty   Motor: 6 years (U.S.and Canada only)       Chamber & Pan: Lifetime

    Made in the USA

    The K-Tec Mill can grind up to 1.5 lbs of wheat per minute.  It sends the flour directly into a 60 oz. flour bin.  This will hold up to 10 cups ground wheat. When you're finished with it you can pick it up with one hand and put it in the cupboard. If you don’t have 11 1/2 inches of shelf clearance, you can turn the grinder housing upside down and sit it inside the grinder’s flour bin making it only 8 inches high. It can grind a variety of items-wheat, oats, rice, triticale, dried pinto beans, popcorn, split peas, buckwheat, rye, millet, soybeans, and whole corn.  Any item that exceeds 15% oil or moisture will gum up and block the mill.  Therefore it will not grind-spices, sugar, nuts, dried fruits, flax seeds, and coffee beans.  Coarsest setting makes flour with the consistency of corn meal.
    The negative side of this mill is that it is quite noisy but considering the speed it can be overlooked.

  • Things to consider when purchasing your grinder.

     

    14 cups flour from 10 cups wheat

     

     

     

     

    A Ten Cup Grind-
    Turning a grinder for 2 or 3 revolutions is one thing. Grinding a full cup of wheat is a very different thing, and grinding enough wheat to make a nice batch of bread is quite another thing. Grinding 10 cups of wheat on different grinders has given us some idea of what different grinders were like for large amounts of wheat.

    Grinding Wheat Is Work
    The first thing people need to know is that grinding wheat can be a lot of work.   Wheat kernels should be hard and will take some amount of energy to turn it into soft, powdery flour. As the tests results will show, some manual grinders require much less energy than others.

    Three Important Things To Consider About A Grinder:

    1. Flour Fineness: One important thing about a grinder is how finely it grinds. It should grind at least a little bit fine in order to get a good loaf of bread.  See our flour fineness chart for more information on this.
    2. Grinding Speed: Another important factor is the difference in the speed different grinders process wheat into flour. Of course, the shorter the time, the better.
    3. Pressure Required To Crank The Grinder:  There can be a huge difference in the turning of the handle on hand grinders. Certainly if the handle is hard to turn, it would require more energy in grinding.  Logic would seem to say that it takes a given amount of energy to grind a cup of wheat to a certain fineness. The easier a grinder turns the slower one would think it grinds and vice versa. Because of the different stone and burr designs, this is not the case. There is a huge difference between the different grinders in how much work must be expended to create the same fineness of flour.

     

    Unimportant Considerations:

    1. The Hopper Size: People with little or no experience with manual grain grinders incorrectly assume the hopper size is very important because if the grinder has a small hopper they are going to have to stop and fill the hopper more frequently. This is faulty thinking because it takes such a long time to grind a cup of wheat even with the very best grinders that the time it  takes to stop and throw another cup or two in the hopper amounts to nothing. Interestingly enough, one of the best grinders and the very worst grinder have the same hopper size. Don't be fooled by this. Hopper size doesn't matter.
    2. The Way It Looks:  There are pretty grinders and there are ugly grinders.  Modern grinders have coating on them to allow easy cleaning and long term ability. But don’t rule out ugly grinders that may do a good job.

    The Controversy - Stones VS Burrs:
    Stones used to be made from natural rock but now are synthetically manufactured. Good burrs are made from hardened steel. You won't find much controversy over burrs but you will concerning stones.

    Stones: A stone grinder will give a finer grind than burr grinders. Modern grinder stones are made from aluminum oxide. This includes the stones in the Wonder Junior and Wonder Junior Deluxe.

    Some opinions have been formed about the stones and health issues.

    1. Grit In The Flour: The American Dental Association had made a statement that's often repeated by numerous dentists, "You shouldn't use stone ground flour because the grit the stones leave in the flour will wear your teeth down." This      might be true of stone ground flour in the third world where native populations use two rocks to grind their meal, but it is not true of these modern grinders. Aluminum oxide stones are Extremely Hard. After the break in period, these stones will not wear down. Many people who have motorized their manual grinders and people who own electric grinders with aluminum oxide stones have individually put tons of wheat through their grinders over many years and their stones are still serviceable.
      There may there have been people who pull the grinder out of the box, push the directions aside and grind up a cup of  flour. Then they never use their grinder again because they found grit in the flour from this first grind. Grinders need to be broken in by putting at least a quart of wheat through them, then discard the flour. After the stones are broken in there will be no more grit.
    2. Health Concerns About The Stones' Composition; Aluminum Oxide: There has been some conjecture of late concerning the effects of aluminum on our health. The U.S. Government does not believe that aluminum can be absorbed by our digestive systems.  Many of us literally eat aluminum every day in some form and many people use aluminum pots. There is valid reason for concern, however, as high amounts of aluminum have been found during autopsies of Alzheimer victims.

    There are some who  choose not to buy one of these grinders because of the aluminum oxide stones. But there's a world of difference between aluminum and aluminum oxide. From the beginning to the end of the manufacturing process, aluminum has never been involved in making the stones. When these stones are made, the manufacturer starts out with the same material that aluminum is made from, bauxite. Bauxite is a red clay that's dug out of the earth. Then it's heated up to over 2,000 degrees C for several days until all that's left is a cinder. This is what the stones are made from. There is no aluminum in them. The aluminum oxide is as harmless as sand and if a particle does break off the stone it will pass harmlessly through you.
    The bottom line is you will have to make up your own minds about this issue and go with a burr or impact grinder if you still feel aluminum oxide poses a health risk to you.

    Cost VS Use: You may wish to temper your decision on the quality of grinder you will be spending your hard earned cash on by how much you think you will be using it. There are many who have purchased a manual grinder, have never used it, and depending on circumstances, never will use it. Contrast this with the families who use a grinder every week to make breads, pancakes, rolls and cereals with freshly ground wheat. You will have to determine if you want to invest in a manual grinder that will only be used to get you through the tough scrapes or will you be using it all the time.  A grinder is an investment.  The reward comes from its use.  Perhaps some real thought should be put into getting a grinder that will nicely serve the expected needs of your family whatever they may be.

  • Positive and negative aspects of grinders.

    There are many aspects to consider in grinders and their uses before purchasing one.  Sometimes is is difficult to know what each grinder does or does not do.  Here are a few things to consider when shopping for a good grinder.

    Stone Grinders

    Favorable   Characteristics

    • Grinds finer than burr grinders.
    • Adjustable to any setting between cracked wheat and fine flour.
    • Should last a lifetime.
    Unfavorable   Characteristics

    • Manual stone grinders tend to turn harder than manual burr grinders.
    • Stones quickly become 'loaded' if you try to grind oil bearing seeds.

     

     

    Burr Grinders

    Favorable   Characteristics

    • Will grind dry grains as well as oil bearing seeds - wheels will not load up.
    • Adjustable to any setting between cracked wheat and fine flour.
    • Much safer machine if you are grinding grain that has not been completely cleaned of grain sized stones and small pieces of metal.
    • Should last for many years of normal use.
    • Generally turn easier than stone grinders.

     

    Unfavorable   Characteristics

    • Will not grind quite as fine as a stone grinder.

     

     

    Electric Impact Grinders

    Favorable   Characteristics

    • Very small, light and compact.
    • Grinds very quickly.
    • Grinds grain into very fine flour.

     

    Unfavorable   Characteristics

    • The blades are somewhat fragile: Small rocks or metal pieces can make the micronetic chamber eat itself! (K-Tec says their grinder will eat some small rocks but care should be taken in grinding). If you take care to only use well cleaned grain, these grinders will also last many years.
    • Noisy
    • Even on the coarsest setting the flour comes out relatively fine. These things won't give you cracked wheat.
    • Won't work without electricity.

     

  • Grinders-a look at three different types

    Grain grinders come in three basic types:

    stones and burrs
    • Stone
    • Burr
    • Impact

     

    Stone Grinders are the oldest type of grinder there is and was the only kind until only a few years ago. Stone grinders have two circular grinding stones. One stone turns against a stationary stone. Grooves are cut, radiating out from the center of the stone. These grooves diminish until they disappear towards the outer edges. When grain is ground, it falls through a channel into the center of the two stones. As the rotating stone turns, it pulls the grain out through the channels and is ground, with the flour falling out the outer edges of the two stones. A hundred years ago these stones were often two or three feet across, weighed hundreds of pounds and were turned by windmills or water wheels. In modern home grinders these stones are small, usually only about three inches in diameter. They are not natural stones like the grinders of yesteryear, but are made from very hard materials that will last a life time if used with care.

    country living burr

    Burrs are similar to stones except their ginding wheels are made out of steel.  These burrs are sometimes referred to as teeth in grinder advertisements. Burr grinders have some advantages and disadvantages over stone grinders. One advantage is that grinding dry grains as well as oil bearing seeds will not clog or "load up" on the burr.   The disadvantage is that it will not grind as finely as a stone grinder.

     

    blades from impact grinders

    Impact grinders use 'blades' placed in circular rows on metal wheels. One wheel turns and the other wheel is stationary like the manual grinders. But this is where the similarities end. When the two wheels are put together the rows of blades intermesh, running microscopically close, yet never touching the blades from the opposite wheel. The rotating wheel turns at several thousand RPM. As grain is fed into the center of the fixed wheel, the interaction between the two wheels 'impacts' the grain and literally pulverizes it into a fine powder as the grain works its way to the outside of the wheels. The K-Tech Grinder and the Wonder Mill both are impact grinders.

    • Hand vs electric grinders

    • Good and negative attributes of grinders
    • How to pick the right grinder for you

     

     

    Purchasing the right grinder for your food storage and emergency preparedness is a big decision.  There are a lot of manual and electric grinders used every day, but many have been sold that have never ground a kernel of wheat. They are sitting in the back rooms of homes all over the country waiting for that time when they will be needed. When that time comes, many will be baffled or surprised at the capabilities of their grinder. All grinders are not created equal. With all the choices and the different  needs it can become confusing.  The information here will help educate you on the many aspects of the different manual and electric grinders. This will help you make a better choice on the right grinder for you.  Grain grinders come in many shapes and sizes. Some are large and bulky and some can be picked up with one finger. Some take a lot of work and others require only the flick of a switch. Because there is such a big difference between grinders, it is necessary to know what you expect from your grinder. After studying the information you will have a much better idea which grinder is best for you.

    Hand or Electrically operated: Some consideration must be given to whether you will buy a hand or electric grinder, or both. This all depends on present circumstances, any preparations you may want to make for the future, and how often you plan on using your grinder.  Powered grinders are nice, fast, and work well with the quality of flour put out.  The drawback for electric grinders would be lack of power. The Country Living Mill can be motorized and be used either way.  Hand operated mills come with stones and burrs. Impact grinders must turn far too fast for manual operation. Hand grinders require some work.  Ease of turning and grinding would be a big plus in hand grinders.  For families that intend on using their grinder on a regular basis, they may consider an electric grinder for every day use, and a hand grinder for emergencies.

    Grain grinders come in several basic types:  The next consideration should be the type of grinder you may need.  This also depends on the products you plan on grinding.   For grinding,  stones, burrs, carbon steel grinding plates and steel impact plates are the working part of the grinder.

    stones and burrs 

    Stone Grinders are the oldest type of grinder there is and was the only kind until only a few years ago. Stone grinders have two circular grinding stones. One stone turns against a stationary stone. Grooves are cut, radiating out from the center of the stone. These grooves diminish until they disappear towards the outer edges.

     Country Living Hand Grinder Z011

    Country Living Hand Mill

     This grinder is the Cadillac of grinders.  The Country Living Mill is solid I-beam construction from cast aircraft aluminum, double industrial sealed bearings, stainless steel shaft, and carbon steel grinding plates come together to make a rugged and durable mill, which is backed with a lifetime warranty.    Each mill, before leaving the factory, is tested by grinding some wheat to ensure that it is functioning properly.  If you are gluten intolerant you would need to request a different grain in testing.

    This mill is designed to last for many lifetimes.  Now a fine hand mill that can actually out grind many of the electric mills by 10 to 15% and then out grind ALL electric mills by 100% when it really counts!  It is one of the easiest manual grinders to use.  The Country Living Mill will grind virtually all dry grains and legumes, including wheat, corn, beans, peas, amaranth, etc. It was designed to be quickly and simply motorized - no adapter kit necessary.

    (All information taken from the manufacturer’s pamphlet.)

    • V-Groove wheel for quick and easy conversion to electric motor.
    • Cast iron flywheel for easy turning and smooth flow of flour.
    • Large hopper holds 2 lb. of wheat.
    • Easy Dial - Self Locking Adjustment.
    • Double sealed industrial ball bearings.
    • Hand cast solid aluminum body.
    • 30% less torque or energy required to turn than any comparable hand mill on the market.

    This grain mill is designed to be easily motorized. The fly wheel is grooved for use with a standard V Belt. We recommend using at least a 1/3 HP motor rated at 1150 RPM and equipped with a 1 1/2" pulley. This ratio will produce about 115 to 120 RPM at the flywheel. Other motors may be used, but they will need to be geared so that the RPM at the flywheel does not exceed 120 RPM.

    The motor and the mill should be securely fastened to a substantial surface. The mill handle must be removed before motorized operation. Never allow the mill to operate without grain being processed!!! Belt size may be determined by the distance the motor is mounted from the mill. Belt tension should not be excessive or bearing damage may occur.

    Country Living Products warrants this mill to be free from defects in material and workmanship under NORMAL USE and conditions for a period of twenty (20) years which includes all parts, excluding the finish. The grinding plates are warranted for a period of one (1) year from the original date of purchase. This warranty is voided during this period if the mill is motorized, used other than recommended or for commercial use.

     Bean and Corn Auger
    The auger that comes with the Country Living Mill resembles a large spring around the grinder drive shaft in the feed housing. This auger produces a minimum amount of drag on the crank wheel and is enough to move small seeds such as wheat through the feed chamber to the grinding plates or burrs. As the burrs themselves are designed for small seeds, the small grain auger that comes with the grinder doesn't adequately move large seeds through the mill in an efficient manner. For those of you who wish to grind larger seeds such as beans and corn, you'll need the larger auger designed for this purpose.

    Corn and bean auger
    Courseness knob

      To install the Bean and Corn Auger, remove the threaded coarseness adjustment knob by turning it counter-clockwise until it turns off the shaft. Slide the rotating burr off the shaft then remove the drive key from the groove in the shaft. Now slide out the grain auger spring. The Bean and Corn Auger comes with a spring that resembles the grain auger spring but is only half as long (not shown). After sliding the grain auger spring off the shaft, slide the Bean and Corn Auger spring on the shaft. Place one of the two drive keys into the groove of the shaft and slide it inside the feed housing until it contacts the spring. Slide the Bean and Corn Auger over the drive shaft, recessed end first, over the top of the spring. Ensure the auger's key way slides over the top of the just installed drive key. This locks the drive shaft to the auger, insuring they rotate together. Install a second key in the groove of the drive shaft and slide it down to the auger. Now, reinstall the rotating burr, insuring the key slides into the key way of the burr. Lastly, install the washers and the threaded adjustment nut. All of this takes maybe 2 minutes and is really a simple operation.

    When grinding large seeds, you may first try increasing the gap between the burrs so there is as much as 1/8 inch gap between the plates. This will grind the beans into chunks. Then put these chunks through the grinder a second time with your burrs set to a fine setting. This will give you a nice, fine flour.

    Unfavorable   Characteristics

    • The blades are somewhat fragile: Small rocks or metal pieces can make the micronetic chamber eat itself! (K-Tec says their grinder will eat some small rocks but care should be taken in grinding). If you take care to only use well cleaned grain, these grinders will also last many years.
    • Noisy
    • Even on the coarsest setting the flour comes out relatively fine. These things won't give you cracked wheat.
    • Won't work without electricity.

  • Whole Wheat Bread

    4 cups hot tap water

    2 tablets Vitamin C-crushed

    ½ cup oil

    ½ cup honey

    1 ½ tbs. salt

    ½ cup lecithin

    10-12 cups whole-wheat flour

    2 tbs. yeast

     

    Grind 8-10 cups wheat.  Using the hottest tap water, pour water into bowl.   Add crushed Vitamin C tablets.  To the water mixture add oil, honey, and lecithin.  Mix in 4 cups flour.  Sprinkle yeast over top stir sightly. Let stand 5-6 minutes until bubbly.  Add salt and 4-6 cups more flour and mix for 12-15  minutes.  Dough should be smooth and elastic and should pull away from sides of bowl.  Dough should be moist and may be slightly sticky.  Adding too much flour will cause dry cracking bread. *Dough is thoroughly developed when you can pull off a small piece and stretch it to form a paper thin sheet.

    Shape into loaves and place in well-greased bread pans.  Let rise until double in size.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.  Temperatures and times will vary. Remove from pans and cool.  Yields 4 medium loaves.
