  1. I have had the Marcato Atlas Grain Mill for about 3 months now. It works well with oats and rye, which are softer. For harder grains it cracks them, so no wheat or spelt flakes. Making flour requires some muscle and the flour is a bit coarse.

    The mill does tend to move when anchored with the single clamp provided by the manufacturer. I have solved this problem by placing the mill at a corner of the table and clamping down the unanchored side with a largish c-clamp (a couple of dollars in a hardware store). It makes grinding much easier, my youngest kid wants to do it now.

    On the plus side, the mill does not take much counter space so you can leave it mounted, and the oatmeal from the fresh flakes is VERY good.

  2. I bought this originally to flake several types of grain for making granola. It handles oats beautifully, but just shatters harder grains. Gums up badly on anything that is at all oily. But the oats do come out very nice in a couple of different thicknesses.

  3. I’ve had this for over a year and we use it almost daily. It is a great oat flaker! You will never buy oatmeal again after tasting freshly flaked oats. It is not good for grinding wheat for flour though. I use an electric mill for that. But I bought it strictly for oats and I’m extremely happy with it for that purpose.

  4. We bought this to go in our food storage in case we ever needed to grind wheat and didn’t have electricity. My sister broke it out this weekend because she wanted to eat wheat cereal for breakfast. It worked okay for that, but you are looking at a lot of work if you wanted flour. You’d have to put the wheat through twice to get it fine enough. Also, it’s not real sturdy. There is only one clamp on on side, so you have to hold down the other side while you churn.

    Overall, we are happy (price has really gone up since we bought it) because if we were ever in a pinch we’d have a way to use our wheat storage. But for everyday use, I’d look for something else.
