LOW-MOISTURE, NON-OILY GRAINS:
*The following grains may be ground in your KitchenAid Grain Mill:
WHEAT - Many different types of wheat are grown in the U.S.
Hard wheat, with a high percentage of protein, is generally considered
best for bread flour. Soft wheat is 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
RICE - White and brown rice grind equally well.
BUCKWHEAT - For best results, buckwheat should be hulled before
grinding. Raw and toasted buckwheat grind equally well.
BARLEY - For best results, barley should be hulled before grinding.
MILLET - Toast millet in a heavy, dry skillet before grinding to
bring out this very small grain's unique flavor. Stir constantly to prevent

DO NOT grind peanuts or coffee beans in your Grain Mill. Their high
oil content can damage the grinding mechanism. Remember that the Grain Mill
is for use with low-moisture, non-oily grains.
Clean burrs and other mill parts with the furnished brush. If needed, a
toothpick may be used to clean burr grooves.
The mill does not necessarily need to be cleaned after every use, but should
be brushed when changing types of grains.
DO NOT wash the Grain Mill or any of its parts in an automatic
dishwasher. If it becomes necessary to wash the mill, wash by hand using
warm water and a mild detergent. Dry thoroughly with a towel as many parts
as you can reach, and leave it to air dry for the remaining parts. Do not
reassemble until the next use. If burrs are not completely dry, grain may
clog the mill.
If the unit is to be stored for a long time, lightly coat the burrs with
mineral oil. Hand wash, as described above, to remove the mineral oil before
