GRAIN AND FLOUR MILLS
Here at HealthyKitchens.com we carry several grain or flour mills for our Canadian customers. Our favorite is the Nutrimill by L'Equip which we have sold now since 2005. We also carry several hand mills or grain mill attachments for the Bosch machines, such as the Family Grain Mill, and our new German Schnitzer Mills.
You may be asking yourself "Which grain mill is the best"
The answer really depends on your individual needs...
The Whisper Mill: The Whisper Mill impact mill is no longer available; for more about the Whisper Mill, see below. The Nutrimill — from a different and very reputable manufacturer — offers everything the Whisper Mill did, and more.
"Thanks so much again for your interest and prompt service, Kerstin is now on a whole new plane of breadmaking, much faster and with less work than the usual spin-grinder approach, and with far superior flour results."
WHY MILL YOUR OWN FLOUR? CLICK HERE FOR SEVERAL GREAT REASONS
Please note: The Bosch Kitchen Centre and HealthyKitchens.com sold the Whisper Mill for years, and for years it was the best impact mill made. But after a change of ownership, service from the Whisper Mill company began to decline. We continued to offer the Whisper Mill for some time because we were able to fill the service gap for our customers, but the company's behavior finally reached such a bad state that we said "no more" and dropped the product. A short while later we got word that the company had, without warning, closed their doors. In doing so, the owners turned their backs on obligations they had to us and to many other parties. Happily, the Nutrimill grain mill is now available. The Nutrimill does everything the Whisper Mill did, and offers major advancements. First, the Nutrimill company is owned by entirely different people — people who, in our experience, have displayed a high level of integrity and who have always provided good service to us and to our Nutrimill customers. Secondly, the Nutrimill can be turned on with grain already in the hopper, and can even be switched off and back on again with grain still in the milling chamber. Doing that with a Whisper Mill would plug it, often requiring the user to return it to the manufacturer for warranty repair — an option that's no longer available. Most of our Whisper Mill owners avoided these pitfalls, but it took only one lapse (possibly by an uninformed or forgetful family member or friend) to cause a real problem. The technology of the Nutrimill makes such troubles a thing of the past. Thirdly, the Nutrimill has a much wider range of texture adjustability than the Whisper Mill. No impact mill can make "cracked grain" (large coarse chunks typically used for making cooked cereals), but the Nutrimill can grind much coarser than the Whisper Mill (a medium meal texture) or much finer (for pastry flour)... as well as anywhere in-between. So it's ideal for making bread flour, but can also do other things. Fourth, the Whisper Mill's 12 cup flour capacity is far exceeded by the Nutrimill's 20 cup flour capacity. The form factor of the two mills is an apples-and-oranges comparison... the Whisper Mill's milling unit was a little smaller than the Nutrimill, but because its flour bin sat outside the mill, the Nutrimill actually occupies less space, with its larger-capacity flour bin that slides into the lower part of the mill housing. Our conclusion is that the Nutrimill is a big step forward in grain milling. It's fast, easy, convenient, and with its self-cleaning milling heads, all you do when you're done using it is rinse out the flour pan. It's easy to see why it's been the best-selling grain mill in the world for over three years now. The bottom line for us is the judgement of our customers: We sell a lot of Nutrimills and our customers are delighted with them — rarely do we receive one back from anyone who was disappointed. You can see the Nutrimill above and we'll be happy to answer any questions about any grain milling questions if you'd like to give us a call!
