Kitchen Mill is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from My blendtec kitchen mill exploded I 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've had the original since 1999 I'm sorry to read the negative reviews. I have the original Kitchen Mill and just now replaced the gasket with the stick-on one from Blendtec. The gasket cost 10 bucks with shipping! It does not work like the original. I have to put masking tape all around the mill to keep the flour from blowing out. I can't use it in my kitchen any more. Mine is super loud, so loud it hurts. I use industrial ear plugs. Also, these mills get your flour very hot-over 100 degrees. Freeze the grain first or lose nutrition. From these reviews I will not be replacing my mill with its Blend Tec version. I'll probably go with a KoMo because of the 12 year warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 21 years and going STRONG! I got my mill 21 years ago, and it is still going strong. I got it for free when I got my Kitchen Champ mixer/blender. It has been used to grind bushels of wheat, corn, barley and other grains over the years. While it isn't quiet, it is faster and better than the electric stone grinder that I used to use. I love that I can adjust how fine the grind is. If I have any complaint, it is not easy to get it clean. I usuallly use a blowdryer to get all of the dust out. But, after 21 years, that isn't much of a comlaint! I don't have any other appliances that have lasted that long (I dropped the Kitchen Champ and killed the computer after 11 years).

Rated 3 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works OK, but using it is a strugle I'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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Service for mill The 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!

Hello, I need this for a 220v, 50mhz country. I have no problem to use a 110-220v transformer, but what about the frequency? will it impact the outcome? Thanks

Asked by: Anays
The mill is only available for the US and Canada and is 120v. Using the machine in another country would void the warranty but could conceivably work if you had the proper converter, protector, etc. Using a transformer easily could have an impact on the machine, and we cannot guarantee that it will work properly.

The manual states that this mill is not for coffee beans. I am assuming this is because the coarsest setting is for cornmeal consistency. Can this mill be used to for grinding coffee beans extra fine (similar to extra fine flour) for Turkish coffee?

Asked by: SAM1
The mill cannot mill coffee beans because of the moistures and oil in coffee. It will gum up the milling chamber. The coarse setting on the mill will still give you flour. The mill will not mill a cornmeal consistency.

Does this machine need circulation while it is running, or is it all right to put it in a box so that the "dust" from the flour does not spread all over the kitchen?

Asked by: Phyl
It will need the air flow In order to mill correctly. There should not be any dust if the cyclone cup, gasket and f-filter are functioning correctly.
