Basically, it can be said that the power or motor strength is not decisive for the flour quality or flour fineness. For normal use in a private household Grain Mills of the 100g class perfectly adequate if mainly common types of grain such as wheat, rye, spelt, barley or oats are ground. The purchase of a more powerful mill ( Grain Mills of the 200g class ) is only worthwhile if you mainly grind very hard grains such as maize and chickpeas or grain in large quantities.
Not all types of grain can be ground from certain quantities with the finest setting, as the ground material heats up more and more as the quantity increases. Once a certain temperature is reached, the oil contained in the grain escapes and smears the grindstone. The best possible degree of fineness can only be determined by trial and error.
