My blendtec kitchen mill explodedI have had my current blendtec kitchen mill for just over three years. This was my third blendtec kitchen mill. I do not register my mills for warranty as I use them to grind small dry wood samples for analysis. My previous mills have jammed and the motors burned up. Something happened to my current mill while in use this morning and it literally lifted up off the cannister and landed upside down. I am fortunate to use the unit on a table considerably lower than counter height so the motor housing did not hit me in the head. I'm sure this was just a crazy fluke and will be promptly ordering a new unit, my fourth in 8 years. This unit grinds better and costs less than anything available in my industry. Like others have said about flour dust (wood dust for me), it blows out from between the motor and canister. I did not have this problem with my earlier mills but have with my last two. Either the gasket or the latches have changed as my last two units haven't locked down like the previous units.
I recommend using it outdoors or indoor with an exhaust fan running. I also recommend wearing safety glasses, a dust mask and hearing protection as the unit is as loud as a jet engine and particles have a tendency to fly out when the hopper is almost empty. I would like to see the gasket/latch issue addressed and it would be great if there was an easy way to be able to unjam the milling chamber and clean in there. As you can see in the picture, my mills get heavy use. Like others, I use compressed air to blow out as much residue as possible.

Works OK, but using it is a strugleI've had my mill since 2006. I just ordered the third gasket! The gaskets don't last, and the two unit halves don’t fit together well. I seems the gasket was an afterthought added to the prototype. Without a good seal between the motor unit and the bin, the mill shoots out flours at nearly supersonic speed! The foam “filter” placed at the motor exhaust port doesn’t do much to keep the product inside the unit either. I can’t use my mill indoors because if I do, I have to clean the entire room.
The other reason I can’t use the mill indoors is it sounds like a jet plane ready for take off. If I had a decibel meter, I would let folks know how loud this thing really is. I literally take it to the garage, don the ear blocks, and grind the grain outside.
Even on the coarsest setting (the dots on the “adjustment” panel provide no real notion of the fineness of the mill), the mill is very fine. With a stone grinder, you can produce everything from cracked grain to the finest XXX mill.
I stored the unit in the garage for while and bugs invaded the works. The bin was clean, as was the bottom of the motor, but A LOT of material accumulates inside the mill that you can’t remove. Did I mention I clean this thing with compressed air (like at a gas station)? And even then, material is left behind. I know this because I had to crack it open to clean it after the bugfest.
This machine will make a flour from wheat berries and other dry, non-oily grains. If you have a need for that task, this mill will work. Just don’t plan on doing it indoors without hearing protection, and budget for replacement parts.
Finally, it’s clear that the new manufacturer, Blendtec, makes blenders and the mill appears to be a product afterthought. On this very review form, I’m asked to state “how I use my blender the most” and “how many blends do you currently have on my machine” which is puzzling given this is not a blender.

I am disappointed that the flour blows out while it is grinding. Makes a mess

Service for millThe clips on the grinder are not up to par. They break easily and then you WAIT forever for the repair team to get to your unit! Maybe it's because it was under warranty and not worth their time!

disappointed jean from
Well, I loved this when I first bought it.When I first bought this I loved it. It does everything it says it does. I have owned it for several years but used it here and there, not constantly. Last year it started blowing the flour into the sealed top of the mill and it was shooting out the vents on the sides. I called Blendtec and it was out of warrantee and seemed that it would cost a lot to fix it. I took it apart and saw that the sealant used to glue the motor to the plastic housing had come apart. I cleaned it well and did continue to use it with it blowing flour all over when in use. Now the housing for the motor has a crack in it. I guess I am disappointed that it was not more durable. I thought for sure I would only have to buy one grain mill in my life. Now I have to buy another one. I just wish it was more durable. I took good care of it, did not drop it, etc. and it still lost its seal and started malfunctioning.

nothing to complain about!My mom got me this for my birthday, and I was so excited! I have not purchased bread for weeks, now. It's been great to be able to mill my own wheat and bake my own super-delicious bread. It makes flour and stores upside down (perfectly compact for my teeny apartment!) And I think people who expect there not to be a slight flour mess with any wheat grinder would be crazy. So far it's done the job well. I have no complaints, and it's no louder than an air popper. Yay for wheat grinders!
