Messerschmidt Grain Mill Attachment for Kitchenaid Mixers

MESSERSCHMIDT GRAIN MILL (Grain Mill Attachment for use w/ Kitchen Aid Mixer)
Model: 4001
This Grain Mill Attachment for use w/ Kitchen Aid Mixer is manufactured in Germany for 27 years by Messerschmidt. Built with premium Lexan and hardened surgical steel burrs. This is a durable grain mill capable of a lifetime of dependable use. Adjustable from fine to coarse. This Grain Mill Attachment is made by Messerschmidt, and will grind more finely than the Grain Mill Attachment made by KitchenAid.

The grain mill will fit on your Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer with a twist of the wrist. The mill steel burrs grind low temperature frictionless milling, avoiding the heat created by most grain mills, giving a true grind. Heat can destroy many of the nutrient in your flour. A cup of fine flour is produced in approximately one minute with the KitchenAid Stand Mixer. Large 5 cup open hopper for continues grinding of grains. Dust Free and removes quickly for cleaning.

Here's a few things you can mill: Wheat, oat, corn, (not popcorn) rye, spelt, kamut, barley, rice, peas, most beans, coffee, sesame seeds, most dried herbs, dried jalapeno's and other hot peppers and more.

The manufacturer recommends that you use this on Kitchenaid mixers of 325 watts of power or higher.

Note: KitchenAid Adaptor Not Needed

Q&A

Questions on Messerschmidt Grain Mill Attachment for Kitchenaid Mixers

  • From at 10/23/11 3:03 PM
    • There are numerous complainats about Kitchenaid's Flour mill attachment ranging from destroying gears and plastic shields by several customers. They say it is too much of a burden on the Kitchenaid motor. DOES THE MESSERSCHMIDT CAUSE THESE PROBLEMS TOO? AND WILL YOU GUARANTEE THAT IT WON'T DESTROY MY MIXER? Thanks for your reply. Tom
    • The Messerschmidt Grain Mill has grinding cones versus grinding burrs, that are MUCH easier to turn than most mills even in their manual grain mill that you grind by hand. The ease of grinding is what makes the Messerschmidt hand mills so popular. This is also what makes their KitchenAid attachment a better choice for use with your KitchenAid mixer, since it will place less strain on your motor, since the way that it grinds is more efficient. However, the manufacturer still does not recommend it for the entry level models if I recall correctly, so I would not use this Messerschmidt grain mill on your mixer if it is one of the lower wattage motors. We can not warranty the product, as warranty is through the manufacturer and not the retailer, but we have been selling this for a long time and haven't had issue with it. Also, please keep in mind that Kitchenaid does not make this item, and so that may handle the way Kitchenaid would handle warranty issues as well. Also, we have a lot of reviews on this grain mill, so I'd read those too. If you want more specific's, the US importer would probably be happy to discuss this with you as well at 386.763.2177.

    • I have a Kitchenaid Professional HD. Is it heavy enough for this grinder?

    • Will the Messerschmidt Grain Mill Attachment for Kitchenaid Mixers, fit model ksm500pssm ?

    • I can not get this grinder to grind poppy seeds pasty to use for baking. I would need a smooth and almost oily paste. How can I achieve this?
      Thanks
    • If you grind them raw, it will come out more like a meal, or slightly more oily, as they will still stick to the burrs. If you roast them, they will be more pasty, so you may wish to try this.

    • Hello, I am considering buying this grain mill to use with my kitchen aid 325 watt mixer, model no. KSM150PSC00.

      At this writing, my intentions are to make wheat bread from the grains I grind with this attachment. In the future as I get familiar with the attachment, I may use it for other grains as well.

      Is this attachment suitable for my machine?
      Is my mixer powerful enough to handle grinding other grains with this attachment? The reviews have me a bit concerned about using this attachment with my particular machine.
      How much grain can you grind with this mill before you need to let the mixer rest?
      How many times do you need to put the grain in the mill to grind so that the flour is the same consistancy of the commercially sold flours over the counter?

      The last thing I want to do is run my mixer!

      Has anyne in your company used a 325 watt kitchen aid mixer to test this particular grain grinder? If so, what were their reactions and findings?

      Thanks for the time and I look forward to seeing your responses.
    • The Kitchen Aid Artisan mixers are 325 watts, and this is the manufacturer minimum recommendation for use of this attachment, so yes, it is suitable for your machine. You can grind 10 cups at a time before letting the mixer rest, and then your Kitchenaid mixer needs to cool for 45 minutes before resuming grinding again.

      You need to grind the flour once to get a grind fine enough for bread, but it's still not powder fine. If you grind the flour twice, it will be finer, and plenty fine enough for bread. However, it will not be as fine as store bought.

      Nobody here has used this Messerschmidt grain mill attachment on a Kitchenaid mixer before; however, I have used this mill with the hand crank and motorized versions, and so am very familiar with the ground flour consistency, and ease of grinding. The hand crank version is VERY easy to turn compared to other grain mills of it's type, due to the cone grinding burrs. This Messerschmidt grain mill attachment should put less strain on your motor than the Kitchenaid Grain Mill attachment made by Kitchenaid, as it uses grinding burrs, which seem to produce more friction. I've made a lot of bread in my life, and between the two, I'd buy the Messerschmidt version.

    • I have a 700W pro series kitchen aid stand mixer. Will this mill handle grinding nuts? (Almonds, hazelnuts, mostly)
    • The FGM Kitchenaid Grain Mill attachment will not grind nuts. You will need to purchase the slicer/shredder attachment with a kitchenaid adapter and the additional drum set. The finest drum in the additional drum set will grind almond and other nuts into flour.

    • Can we use this grain mill to grind rock sugar ( to make powdered rock sugar?)
    • I contacted the manufacturer and they do not recommend using the Messerschmidt Grain Mill Attachment model KA-4001 for grinding rock sugar. The sugar has a tendency to gum up the grinding burrs.

  • From Jeffrey Chan at 11/11/13 11:58 PM
    • Can this mill grind coffee bean to espresso grade?
    • Yes, the FGM Grain Mill is capable to grind espresso grade coffee. The only minor issue with grinding coffee in the grain mill is that the beans will discolor the mill from inside.

poppy mill Review by

Great for poppy seed. Not the best for grain. Definitely not for nuts. Gives a course grind. Can't get as fine as store bought flour. Not noisy but hard to adjust. All plastic frame. Metal grinder but needs to be put together carefully to avoid damage when grinding. A bit overpriced for plastic. (Posted on 12/20/12)

Great for Poppy Seeds - I Concur Review by

Based upon the review already provided I purchased the Messerschmidt Grain Mill specifically to grind poppy seeds for a traditional poppy seed roll recipe. This recipe calls for a lot of poppy seeds and grinding the seeds brings out the flavor of the seeds when baking. The grinder worked great. No oiliness issues. (Posted on 12/22/11)

Poor Customer Service & Will Wear Out in Long Run Review by

Rating
1

We purchased the Messerschmidt grain mill in December of 2008. Although it doesn't make a fine flour, it worked for cracked wheat and such. Unfortunately, it is also very noisy. Overtime the mill gradually weakened until I decided to find out about replacement parts because we were well within the 5 year warranty as guaranteed by the manufacturer. I called EverythingKitchens in October 2011 and they instructed me to call the manufacturer. After numerous attempts to reach the manufacturer representative, I resorted to sending an email message. The manufacturer's customer service representative responded via email, "It is very important that each and every time you use our products you make sure that your grains are free of foreign objects because such as object can cause the burrs to wear down faster and also can damage the conveyer screw. We have both parts available for purchase. The price of the burrs is $25.65, and the conveyer screw is $5.87, plus we charge $7.00 for the Priority shipping." I assured her that no foriegn object had passed through our machine, and the burrs looked sharp. Because I had already invested $100 in the mill, I wasn't too keen on an additional $50 for a mill that may not last. I requested that the company at least agree to cover shipping in order to inspect the mill; however she insisted that there was nothing more she could do for me. Please purchase a mill that will last and provides good customer service. The Nutrimill is a great alternative. I have heard that they stand behind their products and will replace the grinding burrs EVEN IF the fault lies with the consumer. (Posted on 11/2/11)

Much Better Than The KitchenAid Grain Mill Review by

Rating
5

I initially purchased the KitchenAid grain mill and it would not grind wheat berries into flour. The chunky grits were too coarse for bread. The Messerschmidt Family Grain Mill I purchased from Everything Kitchens does grind finely enough to make whole wheat bread flour. I use half or a third freshly ground whole wheat flour with the balance white bread flour for a nice loaf of light whole wheat bread, pizza, etc. I also liked that the Family Grain Mill is a modular design. I bought the KitchenAid attachment and the hand crank base, so I have the convenience of grinding flour using the power of my mixer, but I also have the ability to hand crank the grain mill to grind flour when there is no electricity. Great for preparedness people! The plastic is apparently a very tough polymer, because it's very robust despite the lightweight appearance. It grinds faster than most (all?) of the other mixer powered grain mills, and even though it's a bit noisy, it's quieter than most other grain mills as well. I think the machined burrs grind more efficiently too, so it's easier on your Kitchenaid mixer and easier to crank by hand. (Posted on 8/7/11)

The compact size allows me to store the base of the grain mill attachment in the mixer bowl making it handy for most chores. I use it to grind various grain grits for morning cereal and also to evenly grind my spices for pastrami. Using the large detachable hopper, I have also milled larger quantities of oat flour for wonderful pancakes. It is a great tool for the do-it-yourself food preparer. (Posted on 5/27/11)

This grain mill attachment works wonderfully. I have excellent control over the coarseness of the flour. The flour emerges cool, which indicates an efficient grinding mechanism. Also, related to this efficiency, there is no stress on my Kitchenaid Mixer. It's a piece of cake! (Posted on 5/11/11)

Our family is very pleased with this grain mill attachment for the Kitchenaid! I use it once or twice a week and it is very dependable. It is a bit loud but grinds the grain quickly. I use it to grind millet and rice. I used it to grind wheat berries before going gluten free. I use the finest setting for all of my grinding. It works wonderfully when making my own flour mixes. I wait about 45min. in between grinding sessions and my mixer never over heats. This mill has really helped our family to save money so that we can eat according to our health needs.

Convenient with some concerns Review by

Rating

For size and ease of use for the flour grinder I found this item convenient, but the quality of grind and stress on Kitchen Aid mixer are issues to keep in mind. The grind set to the smallest setting comes out between semi-fine and medium. Also a Kitchen Aid mixer w/325 watt motor is required, and those have plastic gears and after grinding a couple of cups of hard wheat on setting 10 the motor becomes very, very warm.

It's a great grain mill if you don't want really fine flour and if you only need to use it once in a while. I ended up buying a Wondermill Grain Mill because of the amount of flour I use I was afraid of burning up my Kitchenaid. If you make all your own bread and pasta and do not use any commercially ground flour as I do, you will need something a little more powerful than this grain mill attachment for your Kitchenaid mixer.

Well made, easy to use Review by

Bought this Messerschmidt flour grinder attachment to grind wheat for bread flour. I use only Northern Hard Red wheat, and am well-satisfied with the results using this grain mill for my Kitchenaid Mixer. The texture is perfect for whole wheat bread. No problem to clean, easy to assemble, easy to adjust grind (once I figured out the knob on the front). I am hesitant to try grinding poppyseed with this, as they are an oily seed. My mixer is a Kitchenaid Artisan. I follow Messerschmidt instructions to the letter and there has been no stress, strain or over-heating on the mixer as a result. (Posted on 5/10/11)

Great Grain Mill Review by

Rating

We looked around for a long time trying to figure out which grain mill to get. It is amazing to me the range of money you can spend on something like this. I was definitely tempted to get a certain hand-crank cast iron, $400 grain mill, but I just didn't want to spend that much. So next on my list was to find the right combination of lower price and good quality. I struggle with the idea of depending on my KitchenAid to run this, but I figured if anything ever happened to my KitchenAid, I would be going straight to Costco to buy another one anyway. Besides, they are a pretty bullet proof machine.
I have to admit that we have not used our grain mill very much to this point. But the times that we have used it, it seems to put out a pretty fine flour. The only thing missing is some sort of cover for the hopper. When it gets down to the last of the wheat, it spits some of them straight up with considerable force. It will sting your hand a bit. I think this grain mill is a great product, and they had it for a great price here. (Posted on 5/10/11)

I have used this grain mill twice to make bread flour. I had to run the grain through twice and still was not as fine as I would like. It also was a slow process compared to the Krups coffee grinder that I had been using but could only handle small amounts at one time. If you like coarse grain it its ok. (Posted on 5/10/11)

Solid, well made grain grinder Review by

The flour mill does exactly what it's supposed to do. It will not make a fine flour, though, so don't expect light and fluffy pastries or bread from this. The flour is going to look more like cornmeal at it's finest setting. There's little dust and it dismantles easily for clean out. Strong and we have used it on a K45 Kitchenaid mixer with no problem. 5 cups flour in 6 minutes. (Posted on 5/10/11)

Perfect, Compact Mill Review by

I am very pleased with this great grain mill. I already owned a KitchenAid Mixer, so this was the perfect way to get a grain mill that doesn't take up much storage space. It is quieter than I expected and runs the grain through at a nice pace. I did note that the instructions came with a different brand name for the mill than this site lists, but it appears to be one and the same. I use this grain mill mostly to grind wheat for my bread. I pass wheat through twice to help get a fine grain (an initial coarse pass, then a finer grind). I do have KitchenAid with metal gears, which is important for this kind of use. (Posted on 4/21/11)

I have used this grain mill several times now and am very pleased. Buckwheat, spelt, and wheat run through this flour grinder with no problems. Mill works effortlessly. Easy clean up. The mill breaks down easily and reassembly takes maybe two minutes. I won't be buying flour after I use up what is in the pantry. (Posted on 3/29/11)

Dependable Strong Unit Review by

Rating

Considering "plastic" look, after 1 yr. of use, this flour mill takes on anything of reason, and for the most part, on a single pass. I usually initially crack corn before a second and fine meal pass. I have no doubt that the Messerschmidt grain grinder will function for years. It does work fairly fast as the product info states.

2 considerations: I have a "600" model Kitchen Aid w/ steel gears. I could not use w/ a much lighter weight motor. Also, It is possible to jam, especially when cranking to finer grind while it is stopped w/ grain already engaged in milling apparatus. That is easy to avoid. (Posted on 11/6/10)
