KitchenAid Grain Mill

KitchenAid Grain Mill
Attachment for KitchenAid Stand Mixers
Model GMA
For low-moisture, non-oily grains.*


Insert the attachment power shaft (A) with the grind worm (B) and movable burr (C) into the grain mill body (D).

Mount the front plate (E) with adjustment knob (F) onto the front of the shaft.

Note: Turn adjustment knob two or three full turns in a counterclockwise direction to ensure a flush fit. Turn and tighten screws into place.


Before attaching the Grain Mill accessory, turn off and unplug the mixer.

Loosen attachment knob (1) by turning it counterclockwise Remove attachment hub cover  (on some models, the cover lifts up).

Insert the attachment shaft housing (2) into the attachment hub (3), making certain that the attachment power shaft fits into the square hub socket.

Note: Do not run mill continuously with burrs rubbing together; damage to mill may result.

Rotate the attachment back and forth if necessary to position it properly. When the attachment is in the proper position, the pin on the attachment will fit into the notch on the hub rim.

Tighten the attachment knob until the attachment is completely secured to the mixer.


Adjust fineness of grind without grain in the mill.

To adjust for grinding, turn adjustment knob (F) counterclockwise two turns and start mixer at Speed 10.

Note: Do not grind more than 10 cups of flour at one time. Allow mixer to cool at least 45 minutes before using again, or damage to the mixer may result.

Turn adjustment knob (F) clockwise until grinding burrs just make contact - burr contact will be indicated by a change in motor speed and sound.

Immediately turn adjustment knob (F) back (counterclockwise) three clicks.

Stop mixer and fill hopper with grain.

Turn mixer to Speed 10 after grain is added. If grind is too fine, turn adjustment knob counterclockwise one click at a time until desired coarseness is obtained.

Note: Flour ground with the Grain Mill will have a coarser texture than commercially ground flour, because commercial grinders sift out some parts of the berry before marketing the flour.

Continue to replenish grain in the hopper until the desired amount of grain is ground.

It is not necessary to press grain into the hopper with hands or any utensil. The moving grind worm will automatically feed the grain into the burrs.

If you grind more flour than your recipe requires, store it in the refrigerator or freezer to prevent rancidity, since this natural product contains no preservatives.

*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 flour.

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 burning.

Your local library or health food store can provide more information on grains.

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 using again.


When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed including the following:

1. Read all instructions.

2. To protect against risk of electrical shock, do not put the utensil in water or other liquid.

3. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used near children.

4. Unplug from outlet when not in use, before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning.

5. Avoid contacting moving parts. Keep fingers out of discharge opening.

6. Do not operate the appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the appliance malfunctions, or is dropped or damaged in any manner. Return damaged appliances to the nearest Authorized Service Center for examination, repair or electrical or mechanical adjustment.

7. The use of attachments not recommended or sold by KitchenAid may cause fire, electric shock or injury.

8. Do not use appliances outdoors.

9. Do not let the cord hang over the edge of table or counter.

10. Do not let cord contact hot surfaces, including the stove.

11. Check hopper for presence of foreign objects before using.

12. This product is designed for household use only.
