Why mill whole-grain flour at home? Natural kernels of whole wheat contain 16 minerals, 10 essential vitamins, and at least 4 other vitamin factors generally found in bran and wheat germ. Whereas refined white flour, usually front and center on the grocery-store shelf, consists mostly of starch, a small amount of protein, and very little vitamins or minerals. Other types of commercially milled flour compromise full nutrition as well, in order to prolong the flour's shelf-life. Flour from freshly milled grains at home, however, not only offers enhanced health benefits and an easy way to increase natural fiber in one's diet, it also tastes delicious - whether making homemade flour tortillas, a warm loaf of bread, a birthday cake for a friend, or a batch of chocolate-chip cookies with the kids on a rainy day. Furthermore, the mill will pay for itself with the money saved by milling flour at home, baking homemade goods, and buying grain in bulk. In addition to its durable construction with high-quality materials, the mill provides solid-state electronics, a self-cleaning stainless-steel Micronetic milling chamber, a 10 amp direct-drive motor, permanent lubrication, and a design that won't overheat. Built to last, the compact grain mill measures approximately 9 by 9 by 10-1/2 inches and carries a limited lifetime warranty on the chamber and pan with a six-year limited warranty on the motor.
The electricity-saving milling tool with 1-3/4th peak horse power motor has a self-cleaning and lubricating mechanism, which keeps the mill new and germ-free.

By the centrifugal force, every grain in the center of the chamber recurrently hits the several rows of the milling teeth that grind the grain into refined flour without heating up the floor.
