How do you assemble the grain mill?

When you get the grain mill attachment for your KitchenAid mixer, make sure you check out how to get started and assemble it. See the steps here ...

The grain mill for mixers (5KGM) is for grinding wheat, oats, rice, corn, barley, buckwheat, millet and low-moisture non-oily grains. Before you use it for the first time, you need to wash off the oil that has protected the burrs in storage.

How to remove the oil from the grain mill:

The grinding burrs of the grain mill attachment have been lightly coated with mineral oil to avoid rusting during storage. Make sure you wash off the oil with a mild detergent solution and allow it to dry thoroughly. If you do not remove the oil, the burrs will become clogged, and the grinding action will slow down.

How to put the grain mill together:
