Specialty flours, like chickpea and rice, have great health benefits, but they can be expensive. With the right tool, you can mill your own grains and make your own flour. And you can do this with any type of grain, including wheat berries for standard all-purpose flour.
There are many benefits to having your own mill, but the main benefit is knowing exactly what’s in your flour. You have control over the quality of the grains or legumes that you use.
A mill will also save you money. A bag of chickpea flour is about double the price of a bag of whole dried chickpeas. If you like using specialty flours in your recipes, you will save so much money when milling your own grains and beans.
You also enjoy more versatility. It’s not easy to find black bean flour, but you can mill your own if you want. A mill allows you to be more creative in the kitchen, which makes you love home-cooked food even more.
NutriMill’s Harvest Stone grain mill is powerful, easy to use and built to last.

Why I Like My Grain Mill So Much…
The Harvest Stone grain mill is designed to mill just about any grain you throw at it. The mill is equipped with a 450-watt, heavy-duty motor and near diamond-hard milling stones. You can mill just about anything with this unit, including legumes and grains.
You can use this mill in a wide range of recipes, including:
- Baby food
- Protein powder
The only thing you can’t mill is oily grains.
With this miller, you can make:
- Whole wheat flour
- Chickpea flour for gluten-free flatbreads
- Lentil flour
- Oat flour
You can’t make nut flours with this miller, as the oil in the nuts will damage the milling stones.
If you really want to make bread from scratch – using homemade flour – you need a miller like this one. Wheat berries are no match for the grinding stones in this unit.
The motor has auto-shutoff thermal protection to keep the motor from overheating while milling. The shut-off feature allows for continuous milling, so you can make a lot of flour at once if you wish.
The Harvest Stone mill gives you complete control over the size of the grind. You can grind your grains or legumes as fine as pastry flour or coarse to use in cereal. The texture can be adjusted by twisting the knob in the top bowl of the unit.
The unit is easy to use. Just add your grains to the bowl at the top of the machine, choose your grind size, and start milling. Your flour will come out of the chute on the front of the unit. The power button is conveniently located at the side bottom of the unit.
The durable housing is made from eco-friendly bamboo. Not only is bamboo a sustainable material, but it also offers a natural, clean look that goes well with any kitchen décor. This is one kitchen appliance that you will proudly display on your countertops.
The platform just underneath the bowl comes in six colors, including: black, blue moon, cayenne, charcoal, edamame, gold, powdered sugar, rose gold and silver. The color is a nice contrast against the natural bamboo wood shown on the rest of the unit.
There’s a lot to love about this mill. It looks great in the kitchen. It’s powerful enough to mill most grains. It’s easy to use, and it’s durable.
- Powerful motor
- Auto-shutoff feature to prevent overheating
- Adjustable texture (from pastry fine to coarse)
- Durable housing made of sustainable bamboo
- Grinding stones can mill nearly all grains and legumes
- Looks great in the kitchen
- Available in a variety of colors
- Compact size
The only complaint with this miller is that it’s quite compact in size. If you plan to mill a lot (like several pounds) at one time, this unit may not be a good fit for you.
Otherwise, this mill is more than big enough to accommodate a large family. And even if you did want to mill a lot of flour, you’d just have to reload the bowl a few times. The motor will allow you to continue milling for quite some time.
Aside from this minor complaint, this miller works like a dream. The motor and milling stones are powerful enough to mill all types of grains, and you have complete control over the texture of the flour. You can make it as fine or as coarse as you want.
