The Nutrimill is made by the L’Chef Company. The actually have several brand names like L’Equip, Bamix, and Nutrimill. They also are the exclusive distributor of Bosch mixers in the U.S. and Canada, although they don’t own that brand.
Nutrimill’s tagline is Homemade matters. I love that!
How it works
The Nutrimill Plus is an impact mill, which means that inside the mill there are two wheels, but only one turns to grind the wheat. The steel wheels fit so tightly together that running grain through them as one wheel turns crushes the grain into powder.
You can control the rate at which grain is fed through the mill. In general, a slower feed rate creates finer flour as long as you have the motor speed set to high. The faster the grain is feed through the grinder the courser your flour will be.
The feed rate and motor speed work inverse to each other. In other words, you’ll need a slow feed rate and a high motor speed to get fine flour. Then to get course flour you’ll need a high feed rate and a slower motor speed.
Do not leave grain in your mill
You don’t need to turn the Nutrimill on before you place grain in the hopper, but you do need to let it run for about 5 seconds after the grain is finished grinding. Do not store your mill with grain inside. You never want to store any appliance with food in it. Also, always thoroughly wash and clean your grain mill.
The Nutrimill comes with a grain suppressor that you take off for larger grains or beans.
The Nutrimill Plus requires an air filter. Always make sure it’s completely dry and clean before each use. Also, to clean make sure you remove as much dry flour as possible otherwise the flour might clump in the filter.
Make sure your grains are dry and free of debris.
