Clean Before Using
Dismantle the grain mill and wipe off all parts with damp cloth, removing
any residue from the manufacturing and packaging. Be careful not to lose
the small nylon tip on the adjuster knob during disassembly & reassembly.
Assemble Hopper
Assemble hopper by lining up the sides of the hopper and firmly pressing
them together until both sides are fully touching and no gaps appear on
the sides. After correct assembly the hopper should fit snug on the top of
the grain mill. If the hopper doesn’t fit on the top of the grain mill, the
halves have not been pressed far enough together.
3 Setup Instructions
Mount firmly on a sturdy table or counter top and secure with clamp
screw. See mounting example diagrams below:

4 Operating Instructions
Select desired texture by turning the adjustment knob clockwise for fine
milling and counterclockwise for coarser texture. Turn adjustment knob
by hand only. For the finest setting possible turn adjustment knob fully
clockwise until it stops, then back counter-clockwise 1/4 turn (to
prevent over tightening). Then add grain and begin milling. If you desire a
more coarse texture turn the adjustment knob counterclockwise a turn or
two until output is the desired coarseness. Do not operate mill with adjustment knob tightened all the way clockwise as this may damage milling
1. To get the flour output of the grain mill to be the very finest you must
start with the grain mill empty of any grain and the adjustment knob
turned fully clockwise until it stops, then adjustment knob back counter clockwise 1/4 turn.
2. The grain mill can only be adjusted coarse after grinding has begun.
To adjust fine you need to empty the mill of any grain before turning
the adjustment knob to a more fine setting. For this reason we suggest
the grain mill always start adjusted to the finest setting when starting.
3. While designed primarily for small grains like wheat or rice. The grain
mill can grind most dry non-oily food or grain without damaging the
milling cones. Some things grind better than others. If in doubt try it!
4. Some larger items such as corn or beans may need to be chopped into
smaller pieces before the grinder will accept them. This can be done
easily with a blender or food chopper.
5. The flow into the milling cones is gravity fed. This can be problematic
for very light items (rolled oats or rosemary for example). We do not
recommend using the grain mill with these types of items.
5 Please note:
The adjustment knob has a nylon tip that helps keep the milling cone
adjustment accurate. This must be in place for the adjustment settings of
the grain mill to work correctly. Under normal conditions the tip
should last the life of the grain mill. In the event that the tip receives
unforeseen damage or is missing (to prevent this we suggest not loaning
the grain mill) please contact customer service for a replacement.
Disassemble and carefully handle small parts so they don’t get lost. The
grain mill can usually be cleaned with a brush or dry cloth. If thorough
cleaning is necessary, hand wash in warm (not hot) water and dry all
parts thoroughly. Do not allow parts to soak before washing. Do not
clean any part of the grain mill in a dishwasher.
Grain mill rocks from side to side when the handle is cranked. Grain mill is not properly mounted and clamped. See page 4 for moun ng instruc ons. I am grinding corn, beans or similar sized item and very li le or nothing seems to come out. Larger sized items need to be pre‐
chopped into smaller pieces before mill will accept them. Use a blender or food chopper to cut into smaller pieces. See grinding ps on page 5. The grain mill only grinds coarse no ma er what I do. Make sure the adjustment knob has the nylon p on it (see page 6). For adjustment instruc ons see page 5. If problem persists please contact customer service. I am trying to grind (X) and it doesn’t See page 5 for grinding ps. If prob‐
seem to be working. lem persists please contact customer service. Grain Mill is very hard to turn even with nothing in it. 7 Carefully follow adjustment proce‐
dure on page 5 making certain to turn knob back 1/4 turn a er ghtening all the way. Failure to do so can result in damage to the milling cone. VICTORIO DELUXE GRAIN MILL MOTOR

ment‐grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances. DANGER – Improper connec
on of the equipment‐grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. The conductor with insula on having an outer surface that is green with or without yellow stripes is the equipment‐grounding conductor. If repair or replacement of the cord or plug is necessary, do not con‐
nect the equipment‐grounding conductor to a live terminal. Check with a quali‐
fied electrician or serviceman if the grounding instruc ons are not completely understood, or if in doubt as to whether the appliance is properly grounded.
