The Flower Mill herb miller is hands down our favourite tool for the job. Unlike most other grinders it has been designed without any teeth so technically mills, not grinds!
This is the 4-piece version with a mesh catch screen.
The Flower Mill functions by rolling the herb across the screen causing it to naturally break up where the material is weakest. This results in an extra fluffy... grind?.. with increased surface area and no compacted lumps from where herb has been caught by the teeth and forced through the screen. More surface area means higher performance from the same amount of material when vaporised, letting your material either go further or do more for you!
This is about as cutting edge as grinders get without having a single cutting edge! (Couldn't resist sorry). The lack of teeth and deep chamber also provides a huge increase in grinder capacity, giving the Flower Mill the largest grinding capacity of any grinder with the same dimensions, allowing it to grind 2-3g at a time! It even seems to separate the stems, holding them in the milling section!
Due to the lack of teeth this grinder has very little resistance during the grind making it ideal for people with poor grip, or who just don't want to expend a lot of effort to grind their material. It also grinds very quickly, providing you don't fill it right up! The outside of the grinder has a smooth matte surface, with the aluminium body being slightly grippier to make it even easier to hold while grinding. All in all, very comfy to use.
The included medium grind screen makes a great size for a wide range of vaporizers, breaking up the material small enough for full vaporisation effects, but large enough that air still passes through it easily. The Premium Expansion Pack contains a full range of screens with different sizes. We are also big fans of the fine and super fine screens included in the Premium Expansion Pack as they provide maximum surface area and fast extractions at lower temperatures when used in convection vapes. Ideal for micro dosing.
Another advantage of the Flower Mill Premium is compatibility with the Ring. The Ring is replaces the Catch screen (fine mesh screen) section of your four piece miller, effectively converting it into a 3 piece, with all your material being collected in one place (how we use it). This allows for a larger chamber capacity than the regular version, letting you grind and store more herb for the day.

Now... we don't usually leave manufacturer descriptions attached but in this case they've done such an excellent job it'd be rude no to! So that's all below our info. I have endeavoured not to repeat information too much!
From Flower Mill
THIS "CATCH" VERSION WOULD BE TRADITIONALLY CONSIDERED A 4-PIECE GRINDER. INCLUDES NEW 20 FLUTE ROTOR.
The patent-pending rotor design rolls the herb across the screen, progressively crumbling the herb where it naturally wants to break apart. This separation results in a naturally soft and fluffy herb.
A food grade (304) stainless steel milling chamber (rotor, sleeve, screen, and optional catch) ensures your herb is never milled using aluminum. Precision tolerances and careful design means no metal on metal contact in the milling chamber. The outer case is manufactured from aircraft grade (6061) aluminum to keep weight at a minimum.
Rather than shredding like conventional grinders, Flower Mill’s innovative milling process crumbles the herb, resulting in a lighter, fluffier product.
The rotor was specifically designed to naturally process your herb down to the appropriate size as it’s sifted through the milling screen leaving no partially processed herb behind to be painstakingly picked out.
Unlike conventional shredding, the Flower Mill requires much less effort to operate. The lower catch unthreads with only a quarter-turn and a magnetic closure on the top lid makes it easy to load and access your harvest.
No pesky teeth taking up space plus the deep milling chamber means the Flower Mill can process more than a traditional 2.5" grinder. Quickly and cleanly process 3.5g at a time.
All parts fully disassemble to allow complete access and total cleanliness.
Bought this for a mate, it’s a really nice bit of kit. Feels super solid in the hand and everything is just quality: the way the threads engage, the weight, the way it pops together with the magnets all just feel right. I have a cheapo alu grinder and they both do the same job but there’s a whole world of difference! If I start on flower again I’ll be getting myself one
What a piece of kit...
I held off getting a "premium" grinder/mill for some time and instead went through countless cheapy aluminium ones that all shred and gunk up constantly, but seem like they're worth a tenner at the time....they're not. I got sick of picking and poking the stuff that was stuck in the grinder teeth and had to find something better.
I finally caved and settled on one of these and I am not disappointed in the slightest, even the box it came in is well presented. The Flower Mill itself has a nice solid, heavy (But not too heavy) feel to it. It's extremely well machined and all the parts fit together flawlessly with an amazing textured finish. It all comes apart for easy cleaning and the changeable plates are definitely worth grabbing if you want different levels of grind.
Finally my orders were processed and dispatched incredibly quickly and received next day, great service from RecVapes, thank you!
You're very welcome and thank you for the review! I's great to hear people love them as much as I do! I went back to a budget grinder the other day just to see and the difference in monumental.
This Flower Mill is just awesome! Really solidly made and has a lovely weight in the hand. Very tactile. Use it as a 3 piece so I got the Ring and the expansions pack with extra milling plates.
The milling process works really well and the different plates give different sizes to the end product but every plate produces something lovely and fluffy and a pleasure to vape. It is seriously easy to use with virtually no pressure required when turning. It mills everything and you just get a slight rumble turning the lid from any twigs or stems left after your bud is processed.
I believe you get better flavour from your herb and it definitely goes further once you are milling as opposed to grinding.
As ever, service from Matt is superb and well done on stocking such a brilliant product!
I fully agree with everything here, it's a total pleasure to use, thanks for the suggestion dude!
