will it grind? experiments with wondermill grain mills

This site was created by those who work in the WonderMill service center. The WonderMill Grain Mill service center often gets asked if our grain mills can mill all sorts of different items. Sometimes these items are just uncommon grains and spices but some of them are just odd ball items, like fertilizer. We decided to make this site to give people a place to find answers to what they can grind, and demonstrations of grinding it.

WonderMill grains mills are the best grain mills on the market, with the abillity to mill several items that many grain mills will not. There are two grain mills to choose from, the WonderMill electric and the Wonder Junior hand mill. The WonderMill electric grain mill is fast and gives you good variety of items it can grind, not including oily grains, nuts and seeds. The Wonder Junior hand grain mill can grind a very wide variety of things that even some of the most expensive hand grain mills cannot, including oily grains, nuts and seeds.

wondermill junior grain mill, wonder junior deluxe + hand grain mill

The Wonder Junior Deluxe+ grain mill comes with interchangeable milling heads that lock onto the body of the mill: One pair is stone and the other pair is steel. This allows a range of milling options and flour results that can't be matched by other grinders having only a single set of milling heads. The steel burrs tackle wet or oily materials and are also best for certain dry materials, while the stone burrs provide a fine grind for dry grains and dry beans. When using either set, the grind is quickly and infinitely adjustable from extremely coarse to extremely fine, or anywhere between. Two optional powering accessories are also available for the Wonder Junior milla power drill adapter and pulley wheelto further extend its usefulness.

The NEW Wondermill Junior Deluxe+ boasts mutiple upgrades: A lockable adjustment knob system, burrs that lock onto the body of the mill, and a quick-pull locking pin for easy shaft change. This great mill is more amazing than ever!

The Wonder Junior is among the easiest-operating hand crank grain grinders on the market. With the quick change head system you can switch from grinding dry grains, beans and legumes to oily or wet grains, nuts, seeds or coffee, in just minutes. The Wonder Junior is a fast hand mill, producing 1-1/4 cups of fine wheat flour in 1 minute with very reasonable turning effort. It has a generous hopper capacity of over 1 quart.

The thick, 4" diameter corundum stone burrs of the Wonder Junior mill combine aggressive precision grinding with long burr life. Using the stone burrs, your Wonder Junior can grind wheat (both hard and soft), oat groats (dehulled oats), rice, triticale, kamut, spelt, dry beans, lentils, dent (field) corn, popcorn, dried sweet corn, split peas, buckwheat, barley, rye, millet, teff, quinoa, amaranth, sorghum, dried mung beans, garbanzos, and more (all dry grains and beans.) The Wonder Junior can easily be adjusted to grind coarse, fine, or anywhere in betweenso you're ready to make flour, grain meal, cereal grinds, cracked grain... you name it. Switching between stone and steel burrs takes less than two minutes.

The 4" diameter stainless steel burrs of the Wonder Junior mill can be used with any of the dry grains and beans that the stone burrs can be used with. In addition, the steel burrs can be used for oily or wet materials that would gum up and/or clog grinders that use only stone burrs or impact-style milling heads. In conjunction with its newly redesigned, highly aggressive feed auger, when using the steel burrs the Wonder Junior mill can grind nuts, coffee beans, herbs, spices, oilseeds like flax, fibrous materials or sprouted seeds or grains, cacao nibs, dried bone, alum and more. (The Wonder Junior is not suitable for grinding dried carrots or mesquite bean pods.) The Wonder Junior can easily be adjusted to grind coarse, fine, or anywhere in between. The steel burrs prepare you to easily turn out nut butters, grain flour, steel cut oats, meal, cracked grain and more. The Wonder Junior grain mill equipped with its steel burrs has the widest range of grinding capability that can be found. Read the .

The robust construction of the Wonder Junior grain mill is seen in its solid metal unibody design, heavy duty replaceable bronze bearings, large diameter (5/8") steel drive shaft and a heavy duty crank arm with handle that's sized to be comfortable for every hand. Each component of the Wonder Junior is more than strong enough for decades of daily use. The construction of the milling body extends to the milling heads as well. The steel and the corundumstone burrs alike are engineered for both excellent grinding performance and long life. The entire main body of the mill is powder coateda food safe, super tough, long-lasting finish that helps make cleanup a breeze.

The Wonder Junior mill is beautifully designed for a lifetime of steady use. Easy to clean and simple to operate. Between the stone and steel burrs, it grinds virtually any grain, bean or seed. Nicholas F., SC

The Wonder Junior's table clamp wasn't an after-thought, as is the case with many mills. It attaches easily, and with its large dual clamp screws it won't slip during grinding. The large swivel pads on each screw mean it won't chew up your table, and it accommodates surfaces up to 2-1/8" thick and a counter overhang from 2-1/2" to 2-3/4" deep.

It takes just one to two minutes to clean the mill out after grinding a material like dry grain, and a handy brush is included that makes it easy. Because the Wonder Junior Deluxe+ includes the Flour Guide as standard equipment, you won't have flour scattered around on your counter. Cleanup takes a little longer after grinding wet or oily products (like when making nut butter), but the mill's quick, tool-free takedown makes any cleanup simple and hassle-free.

The Wonder Junior Deluxe+ comes very well supplied with all of the essentials. Included standard are the mill itself, the stone burr set, the steel burr set, the flour guide, the table clamp, a handy cleaning brush, and a handle remover tool. The new Masa Auger attachment can also be included, as an option in the selector menu above. Optional available items include the drill adapter and the pulley wheel.

The Drill Adapter and Pulley accessories are shown below. Other accessories that are included standard with the mill can be seen on our in case you want a spare or replacement, or bought your mill earlier without one of the things that now comes with the mill. Whole Grain Nutrition: Harvest the Benefits! Imagine that for years, your children ate mainly candy. Imagine that you did, too. Imagine an entire nation on a candy diet. Imagine the health consequences. Natural whole grains contain a myriad of health-essential nutrients, from proteins to vitamins and amino acids. But "white flour" consists only of the starchy endosperm of the wheat kernel. In its natural form the endosperm provides wholesome energy, but it's the least nutrient-rich part of the grain. Removed are the nutrient-packed bran, wheat germ, and wheat germ oil. Then to make it extra white, industrial processors go further, chemically bleaching it, and returning just enough of a few vitamins to stave off beriberi and rickets. They're allowed to call the end product "Enriched Flour" but a truthful label would read "Impoverished Flour." This snow white, denutritionalized substance is a commodity worth billions of dollars annually to its merchandisers because of a commercially useful characteristic: Unlimited shelf life. No matter how long it sits in the mass distribution channel, it can't go bad precisely because there's actually nothing left in it that can go bad. Nutritionally, it's bad when bagged. A few companies have grown enormously rich marketing this pseudo-food on the basis of convenience, ease, and its dazzling white appearance. But a blind eye was turned to the consequences of replacing real whole grain flour with something that looks special, yet is virtually devoid of nutrition. In essence, candy. So widely has this nutritional travesty become accepted that we call itand think of it aswheat flour. But to depart further from natural grain flour would scarcely be possible. Then to make matters worse, artificial sweeteners, flavors and colors, appetite stimulants and preservatives are added to many of our foods. "Artificial" tells you those things aren't naturally food. But have you ever wondered what they actually are, then? Did you know some of them are actually petroleum derivatives? What unintended side effects might those complex counterfeit compounds have on us? The human body is an absolute marvel; scientists have a long way to go to understand a tenth of how we work. But as capable and as resilient as our bodies are, common sense and history teach that we need wholesome, nutritious food to remain healthy and strong. The denatured byproducts being mass marketed today don't provide what we need, because they've been profoundly altered by processes in which real nutrition is considered last, or not at all. There's a great solution to this problem. By grinding grains in your kitchen and using the whole grain flour while it's fresh, you get the nutrition needed for strength and health. You also get far tastier food, with genuine characterincomparably more satisfying than today's mass marketed pretenders. After transitioning to whole grains, putting out a plate of white styro-bread will elicit comments like "Why are you giving us this... and where's the good stuff?". Even flour labeled as "whole grain" in stores falls far short of what you can easily grind yourself, because unless it's ground while you wait, the essential Vitamin E in true whole grain flour would go rancid in days (meaning that it's probably been removed), and all nutrients begin steadily oxidizing-away from exposure to oxygen as soon as grain is milled. What's in those bags is not whole grain flour if it's been sitting on a shelf for even a few days; that's literally impossible. Making real food is more than doable, it's downright fun with help from Pleasant Hill Grain! A grain mill like the KoMo Classic is the place to start. And to make whole grain bread quickly, easily and with consistently wonderful results, nothing beats a quality stand mixer that's capable of mixing and kneading bread that's ready to pop in the oven quickly and without hand kneading. These machines make it easy to turn the corner to a far better and more enjoyable way of eating!

This adapter lets you power your Wonder Junior grain mill with an electric drill. The mill should not be turned at more than 300 RPM (revolutions per minute), which is about twice the typical speed of hand cranking. With many drills it's difficult to maintain a particular speed. The DeWalt DW130V is one drill that users have found it pretty easy to control the speed with. Powering the Wonder Junior mill using this adapter and a drill does not void the manufacturer's warranty. The Power Drill Adapter includes a special tool...

Chain Sprocket fits on the shaft of your Wonder Junior Hand Grain Mill so you can hook it up to a bike. The chains of most modern bicycles will fit the sprocket, and mill speed must be no more than 300 RPM. User is solely responsible for safe design and operation of any drive system, including...

This large heavy duty pulley wheel accepts standard V-belts and can be used to provide power to the Wonder Junior mill from a variety of power sources. Whatever power source you may use, the Wonder Junior needs to be turned no faster than 300 RPM (revolutions per minute), which is about twice the typical speed of hand cranking. Power sources are limited only by your imagination. One popular approach is adapting a standard or exercise bike so you can use leg power rather than arm power. An electric motor can be used, but...
