The Back to Basics Mill does mill flour, though not as finely as an electric mill. The two piles of flour in the photo below somewhat show this. The pile on the right is from the Back to Basics Mill; the pile on the left is from an electric mill.
|Note the coarser flaking in the right-hand pile.|
I'm glad to have this for use in case the electricity goes out or the end of the world comes! It is a great arm workout and I think I can handle that once a week or so. And as you can see, it makes excellent bread!
|The hopper is smaller than that of an electric mill, but a cinch to refill.|
|Manual grain mill = fresh flour + arm muscles!|
|Another benefit of a manual mill is the quiet operation...a consideration if you have small children.|
|Worth the effort? Absolutely!|
