The growing demand for organic and health foods containing dietary fibres has led to a renewed interest in traditional stone grinding of cereals. Flour produced on one of our stone grinding mills contains all the natural vitamins, minerals and ballast substances and can be used for baking without further processing.

Our flour grinding machines meet the demand of all types of customers, from big milling companies using our industrial mill Grindmaster as the heart in their milling plants to the small to medium sized farmers who enjoy the possibility to mill their own grain on e.g. our tabletop mill EM 25/250 or our small industrial mill EUROPEMILL 600 W, and thus get value added to their production by selling flour from their own farm shops.

bob's way - the mill

bob's way - the mill

Bob's journey began in the mid '60s after coming across a book about an old stone-grinding flour mill. Unable to shake his vision of operating a flour mill that provided healthy and nutritious food, Bob tirelessly searched for his own set of usable millstones. With a little time and persistence, Bob and his wife found several sets of millstones and began their first mill in Redding, California.

In 1978 the couple left the mill and retired to Oregon City, but fate stepped in one afternoon when Bob came across an old mill that was for sale in nearby Milwaukie, Oregon. A few months later, Bobs new mill was producing stone ground flours and cereals for local customers.

They enjoyed much success until 1988, when an arsonists fire tragically destroyed the building. Never one to back away from a challenge, Bob worked to build the business again from scratch, creating the Bobs Red Mill you know and love today.

To make superb whole grain flour, no modern technology can match the Old World engineering of a stone mill. Our beautiful stone grinding mills are much like the ones used during early Roman times. Unlike high-speed steel rollers, our quartz millstones ensure the most nutritious parts of the whole grain remain, so we can pack wholesome goodness right into your bag.

Because the millstones grind at a slow speed and cool temperature, the inherent nutrients and flavor of our grains are preserved, a production 'secret' that allows us to seal in the freshness and bring you wholesome, quality foods, just as nature intended.

Today, our spacious facilities in Milwaukie, Oregon include the 325,000 sq ft headquarters, laboratory, and manufacturing plant and our 127,000 sq ft distribution center! There we produce thousands of products each dayall with the same good, old-fashioned and simple techniques our customers have come to love and trust since our beginning.

Come see the whole grain magic making for yourself in Milwaukie, where you can tour the Mill, shop at the Whole Grain Store & Bakery, and eat at our Restaurant! Youll be able to eat some of our delicious whole grain products, see our historical milling equipment and the modern factory in action, and purchase some goods to take home! You might even see Bob there enjoying a bowl of oatmeal, visiting with customers, or playing piano.

The moHA! ginger grater has blades that are arranged in all directions for steady grating, as opposed to a one-directional rasp grater. But like with a wand-style rasp grater, moHA!'s cutting surface is made of sharp and durable precision-cut stainless steel. When you rotate the device, an integrated cleaning arm sweeps in a circular motion to scrape shavings off the blade, so all of the grated food ends up in your recipe, not stuck in crevices. A small compartment catches food shavings, for less mess and easier measuring; plus, the concave sides are comfortable to hold and allow you to keep a firm grip on the grater during use. The moHA! Ginger Grater has pieces that detach easily for cleaning, but the device stays together during use. When you're done using it, simply disassemble and toss it in the dishwasher.

Most pepper mills (this model also grinds spices) take forever to grind just one tablespoon. This new designwhich we developed with Kuhn Rikonis easy to use and produces all the spice you can use quickly and easily. Its innovative back-and-forth ratchet action is easier than a twist-style mill, especially for those with hand issues. The precision ceramic grinder is effective and durable, and the front-loading hopper is far easier than top-loading grinders, where half the spices inevitably spill during filling. Perhaps our favorite feature is the removable bottom container, which makes it easy to measure and transport spices to a stovetop pot or mixing bowl.

We strongly encourage grinding whole spices fresh for your recipes. Sure, its an extra step, but the flavor boost is transformative. Thats why we designed a Ratchet Grinder with Kuhn Rikon and these accompanying stacking spice jars, which snap onto the bottom of the spice mill for less mess and easy storage. These 3-tablespoon containers are just the right size for holding a small amount of spice without letting it go stale. We also love the containers for transporting small amounts of spices and seasonings in our lunch or picnic containers. A desk lunch will never be boring again.

Every kitchen needs a box grater, and this clever design by Danish company Eva Solo is a pleasure to use compared to other models. The large stainless steel cylinder acts like a cup to contain food as it is grated, so you can easily see how much you've grated and transfer the food to your dish when you're donecompare this to standard box graters that create untidy piles of shavings. About 60% of the grater's circumference is covered with grating holes, in traditional coarse and fine sizes, and we found it very easy to brace the tool with one hand while grating with the other. Eva Solo's product is also easy to clean, as it is dishwasher-safe and large enough to wash thoroughly by hand.

Japanese company Kai, who makes our favorite poultry shears, also produces a line of kitchen graters: the Pure Komachi Series, which has sharper cutting edges than most brands because its stainless steel is precision-cut using an innovative etching method. The Fine Grater & Zester, which comes in a cool slate gray hue, shreds food similar to a wand-style rasp grater, but with finer, more delicate resultsit's also easier to clean. We especially like it for a dusting of lemon zest or nutmeg over a dish. The ergonomic handles are made of plastic treated with a nonslip coating that wraps around the whole device to form a grippy base at the other end, which is helpful if you choose to brace the grater against a surface.

This mortar and pestle set from German company Zassenhaus is durable, efficient and easy to use, with ergonomic handles and convenient pour spouts for less mess. The nearly indestructible cast iron is ideal for grinding foods, as its coarse surface creates more friction to release aromatic compounds from spices and herbs and achieve a finer texture. And because the mortar is made from a single piece of metal, it can be cleaned more easily and thoroughly than stone models. We also like that it's lightweight and more practical for daily use than cumbersome granite. And because it's thinner, both the sides and edge of the mortar are easier to grip while in use, for quicker, more effective grinding.

Here at Milk Street, we love crushing spices or herbs by hand to create more variation in texture and extract more flavor, and a mortar and pestle allow us to blend them more precisely. The molcajete is a traditional Mexican variation of a mortar and pestle for grinding dried chilies to use in salsas or for making perfect guacamole. It has a shallower, wider bowl than a typical mortarabout 6 inches in diameterwhich helps for closer control and more surface area to break down tough textures, like the skins of guajillo or ancho chilies. Plus, the molcajete is made of coarse and incredibly durable volcanic stone that creates plenty of natural friction. Its accompanying pestle is called a tejolote; at 3 inches long, it's perfectly proportional to the shallow bowl of the molcajete. Our food editor, Matt Card, says this tool is worth owning for guacamole if nothing elsethe texture it yields is the ideal balance of creamy and chunky. Try our recipe for Central Mexican Guacamole, picked up from Mexican cooking doyenne Diana Kennedy. Each molcajete comes in a one-of-a-kind, hand-woven and vibrantly colored basket made from palm leaves. It's meant to hold tortillas and has a lid to keep them warm, but we also like to use the basket to keep fruits and vegetables on the counter, such as tomatoes, onions or avocados for the guacamole you'll be making. It even makes an attractive container to store kitchen clutterloose change, receipts and the like.

When you're freshly grinding whole spices, a standard-sized mortar and pestle will do the trick and produce flavorful, aromatic results.

This charming ceramic pot functions as a two-in-one garlic storage container and grater. Three holes in the side provide ample air circulation to keep garlic fresh, while the jar shields the cloves from light, which can lead to sprouting.
