Summary Ideal manual grinder that will be a decorative addition to your kitchen. The grinder assembly is cast iron with a tapered burr that rotates inside of a stationary sleeve. The handle, bowl, and support/adjustment mechanism are all constructed of stamped steel. A steel shaft connects the burr and the handle. The housing consists of painted hardboard while the drawer is constructed of unpainted hardboard. Has a grind adjustment the goes from coarse to fine and is accomplished by loosening the handle and holding the shaft while turning the adjustment washer. This will move the burr up or down within the sleeve and this will close or open the passage area. The larger the passage the coarser the grind.
Summary Being a manual grinder I would recommend this for only occassional use. If you do a lot of baking, this would make a fine backup, but not your #1 grinder. Unless you just want to get a lot of exercise grinding wheat or whatever. Works perfectly when using for fresh organic cracked wheat, rolled oats, and cereal. Not so good for flour as it doesn't get fine enough. But for the price you cannot go wrong. Good little manual grinder to add to your kitchen utensils.
