Default Opinions on Grain Mills

I'm looking at new grain mills and I was just looking for opinions as to the quality and ease of use of the Monster Mill, Crankandstein and Grain Crusher. All three are relatively pricey, and I just want to get the most for my money.

All three are very good choices. I have the Monster Mill MM2-2.0 and I love it.

I have the MM3-2.0 and really enjoy using it. I've noticed a slight improvement in grain crush over a two roller mill, but it's not so much that I absolutely recommend three rollers over two. If you have a few extra bucks, the third roller is nice, but it's not a necessity.

I have the barley crusher, works great and its a pretty good price, really it comes down to personal choice, they are all pretty damn good!

I have the Barley Crusher as well and love it.

It seems that anyone who has bought a grain mill has been very happy with the investment, regardless of brand.
