Rated 4 out of 5 by Grammarian 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 Blendtech Fan 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 4 out of 5 by 1derwoman from Great For a While We purchased our Kitchen Mill 6 years ago and have used it regularly. I make bread several times a month. More than once we have ground a 20 lb bag of wheat in one session. It's been a beautiful tool in our kitchen and it does a wonderful milling job. It grinds quickly and the grain is very fine. I've given the mill as a gift twice and recommended it to everyone. Two years ago I noticed the seal around the pan was giving out and the room was taking a flour bath when in use, so we replaced the seal. At replacement I noticed a tiny crack in each of the side latches. The new seal and cracked latches meant that we had to hold the unit together to prevent flour from coating the house. The cracks have grown over time with use. One crack now runs right up to the filter section and the unit is useless. It's a fundamental design flaw of poured plastic. I'm so disappointed and am now shopping for a new mill. If you plan occasional use, I highly recommend the Kitchen Mill. If you need a work horse, move on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Suzie 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 5 out of 5 by MaryCeleste from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elnsanch from Clean and not as loud I’ve used it for my first time, did 12 cups of wheat straight through. Did not have powder flying all over the place-the way the grinder top seals to the container helps , and it was more quiet than other grinders. It packs up so small to stick on a shelf neatly. My only wish was that it would come with a little brush to brush out the flour in the grinder. But not a big deal-can just get a brush somewhere. Very happy with the grinder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SingingChef from Works perfectly! I ordered this attachment to go with an older model Kichenetics K2 mixer (2006 precursor to the Mix and Blend) and this works great! I recently used it to make an ermine frosting, which needs to be whipped at high speed for upwards of five minutes. Light, fluffy, and the best frosting I've ever made, compared with the results from using a hand mixer or KitchenAid. Awesome products; I love Blendtec!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Samson10 from Back to working great! Thanks for getting my new piece to me so quickly. I use my Champ for my bread making and was missing it terribly. I was concerned when I couldn't find a supplier in Saskatchewan, but was very relieved to know I could get the part I needed through you. Thanks again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tammy from Can't live without it I have a Blendtec mixer/blender combo and I LOVE it. After killing 3 bread machines and my 20 year old Oster I researched and bought a Blendtec.

Rated 5 out of 5 by scooterD from Perfect fit for my old K-tec I have a K-Tec Kitchen Champ ("Food Preparer" Model C-4) that I have used for well about 15 years. Messed up badly when I accidentally set the mixing bowl on a hot surface and melted the bottom out of it like a marshmallow. Thankfully, the Blendtec bowl is a total retrofit. It appears to be a slightly more rigid material than my old bowl which is a very good thing, -especially for kneading bread dough and mixing stiff cookie doughs. Thank you, Blendtec. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elizabeth from Awesome product! I have no clue how the other reviewer used the kneader arm! I have been making beautiful bread for 17+ years using the kneader arm with the dough hooks. You can't use one without the other... So if the kneader arm was used alone with the mixer bowl no wonder the thing didn't work... The kneader arm doesn't move by design the dough hooks move and the kneader arm pulls and folds the dough to develop the gluten... Don't listen the the other reviewer... Listen to the one who has been using the product for almost 18 years... If you want to make bread dough, you need both the dough hooks and the kneader arm!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Crazy8mom from Works like a charm I had lost the kneading arm during our move. I called to order another one. They were so helpful, gave me a time window for delivery. It arrived as they said! I'm back to baking for the holiday! YES!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shirley Vick from what I expected This little piece of foam gasket is incredibly expensive for what it is, next time and for others who have the same machine I will recommend they go to a hardware store and buy .50 cents worth of weather stripping, it would do the same job ! However I am glad its on my machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DB in LA from Worked on my 30 year old Kitchenetics Kitchen Mill Did not want to replace the perfectly functional mill for want of a gasket, and was worried it might not work right, but it was fine. Directions were clear, it was easy to replace, and all is good again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MRSC from Love it! I bought this about a month ago, and I love it. It works so much better than the old gasket, and my kitchen work space is cleaner because there is less flour being blown through cracks on my mill. Instead of putting off milling my wheat I don't worry about it because the whole process is less messy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by professoryelnats from Wheat Grinder Mill Gasket The Mill gasket come in two adhesive strips. Clean the surface well before adhering. Be cautious as you apply it as it sticks very well and may not come off if you miss place it. Fortunately for me, the strips were a little bit longer than I needed. Works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mklyo from My mill is back in service after many months. I do not have the blender, only the mill. Great! Finally can mill my wheat again. The gasket works great, I think that it is better than the earlier design. I like the sticky side which presses on to the body of the mill--a good improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mjenf from Simple to use My wife and I bought a Kitchen Mill a few years ago and we grind our own berries quite frequently. Over the past few years we only used 2 filters. We probably should have changed them out sooner than that, but they still worked for the most part. We ordered new filters and the mill is running better now. They are great filters, although, I would not recommend rinsing them. Rather, just dust off the flour and put it in a dry spot. We were rinsing them after use, and that made them brittle and the filter shrunk a little. Overall, great filters, highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fatmormonwoman from F filter, I love you. What words can convey my feelings for me new F filter? I love it. It is so cute! It is in the shape of an F. Sometimes I play with it on the counter top when the kids are at school and I am alone in the kitchen. I walk it around and talk to it. It is a wonderful, squishy letter F. I keep it handy in the flatware drawer. I don't know what it is for but I have fun with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Momof6 from Improved Quality! I have had my grinder for 20+ years. For a time the F filters did not hold up for more than 2 grindings. They just kind of compressed from the heat. These F filters are a bit big for my grinder, but I just insert them until they stop. They have held up beautifully. I love this grinder and hope to continue making healthy flour for my family.
