Grain Mill Attachment

The following attachment is designed to mill low-moisture, non-oily grains such as wheat, corn, rye, oats, rice, buckwheat, barley, and millet.

Grain Mill Body — serves as a hopper; guides grains into grinding burr

Grind Worm — drives grinding action

Movable Burr — grinds whole grains into flour

Adjustment Knob — adjusts the fineness of the grind

Cleaning Brush — use to clean burrs and other mill parts after use.

Grain Mill Attachment - Parts and Description

NOTE: Never immerse Grain Mill in water or other liquid. Never wash in dishwasher. For recommended cleaning methods, See Care and Cleaning section.

NOTE: The Grain Mill is designed to grind only low-moisture, non-oily grains. Do not grind peanuts, coffee beans, soybeans, or sunflower seeds with the Grain Mill; their high oil or high-moisture contents can damage the grinding mechanism.

Assembling Your Grain Mill

NOTE: The grinding burrs of this unit have been lightly coated with mineral oil to help prevent rusting during storage. Before using the grain mill, wash off the oil with a mild detergent solution and dry thoroughly. If you do not remove the oil, the burrs will become clogged and the grinding action will slow down. After using the grain mill, follow the "Care and Cleaning" section.

Insert the attachment power shaft (A) with the grind worm (B) and movable burr (C) into the grain mill body (D). Mount the front plate (E) with adjustment knob (F) onto the front of the shaft. Turn and tighten screws into place.
Assembling Your Grain Mill


Before attaching the grain mill, turn off and unplug the stand mixer.

  1. Depending on which type of hub you have, either flip up the hinged cover or loosen the attachment knob (A) by turning it counterclockwise and remove attachment hub cover.
  2. Insert the attachment shaft housing (B) into the attachment hub (C), making certain that the power shaft fits into the square hub socket. Rotate the attachment back and forth if necessary. When the attachment is in proper position, the

Tips for Milling Grain

Flour ground with the Grain Mill will have a coarser texture than commercially ground flour. The Grain Mill grinds, and you receive, all parts of the berry; commercial grinders sift out some parts of the berry before marketing the flour.

It is not necessary to press grain into the Grain Mill hopper with your hands or any utensil. The moving grind worm will feed the grain into the grinding burrs.

One cup of grain yields between 1 and 1 1 ⁄ 2 cups of flour.

One cup of oats yield 7 ⁄ 8 cup of flour.

If you grind more flour than your recipe requires, store it in the refrigerator or freezer to prevent rancidity, since this product contains no preservatives.

Do not grind coffee beans in your Grain Mill; their high oil content can damage the grinding mechanism.

Do not grind grains or nuts with a high moisture or oil content, such as peanuts, sunflower seed, and soybeans. These can also damage the grinding mechanism.

Suggested Grains

All these low-moisture, non-oily grains may be ground in your KitchenAid ®

Grain Mill

WHEAT — Many different types of wheat are grown in the United States. Hard wheat, with a high percentage of protein, is generally considered best for bread flour; soft wheats are preferred for cakes, cookies, and other baked goods. Mix hard and soft wheats for all-purpose flour.

CORN — Grind fine for baking, coarse for corn meal mush.

RYE — Combine rye flour with wheat flour for best results with rye bread; rye does not contain enough gluten for good rising.

OATS — Oats must be hulled before grinding for flour, or use rolled oats. Oat hulls prevent proper feeding of grain into grinding burrs. In most recipes you can substitute oat flour for up to 1 ⁄ 3 of the all-purpose flour.

RICE — Both white and brown rice grind well.

BUCKWHEAT — For best results, buckwheat should be hulled before grinding. Raw and toasted buckwheat both grind well.

BARLEY — For best results, barley should be hulled before grinding.

MILLET — Before grinding, toast millet in a heavy, dry skillet to bring out this very small grain's unique flavor. Stir constantly to prevent burning.

Your local library or health food store can provide more information on grains.

Using Your Grain Mill

Note the grind symbols at the top of the dial. The Fine Grind Symbol (A) indicates the finest grind setting. The Coarse Grind Symbol (B) indicates the setting for the grind that is most coarse. Each notch on the dial represents a grind setting.
Using Your Grain Mill - Indication

  1. Select the finest grind setting by turning the adjustment knob (C) clockwise to the Fine Grind Symbol (A).
  2. Fill the hopper with grain.
  3. Once the grain is added, start the mixer at Speed 10.

NOTE: If the grind is too fine, turn the adjustment knob counterclockwise, one notch at a time, until desired coarseness is obtained.

  1. Continue to replenish grain in the hopper until the desired amount of grain is ground.

NOTE: Do not grind more than 10 cups of flour at one time; damage to mixer may result. After grinding 10 cups of flour, allow the mixer to cool at least 45 minutes before using it again.

Care and Cleaning

Clean burrs and other mill parts with the provided brush. The Mill does not necessarily need to be cleaned after every use, but should be brushed when changing types of grains. If needed, a toothpick may be used to clean the burr grooves.

Do not wash Grain Mill or any of its parts in an automatic dishwasher.

If the Grain Mill must be washed, wash it by hand with mild detergent and warm water. Dry thoroughly with a towel. Allow to air dry. Do not reassemble until next use. If burrs are not completely dry, grain may clog the mill.

If the unit is to be stored for a long period of time, lightly coat the burrs with mineral oil. Before next use, hand wash as directed above to remove the mineral oil.
