I have been using the same flour mill for the last ten years. It is made by Kenwood and it works as an attachement to the Kenwood KM800 mixer that I have. This machine has worked perfectly for me. I wouldn't consider anything else. I use it twice every day.
Freshly ground flour retains its nutrients much better than prepackaged ones that you buy in the market. I have found it also to be better because I can control the coarse of the flour and it allows me also to experiment with different mixes.
I've been doing research on attachments for my new Kenwood mixer and pricing out the attachments. The grain mill is on sale at Amazon.com for $59.99 (regular is $94.45). I was tempted to buy it because it's such a good price, but I was having a hard time imagining myself using it. I think I will buy it now after reading this post.
Papa: do you have any of the other attachments? If so, how do you like them?
This is very tempting. Here's my question. It seems that much of successful bread baking depends on the protien level of the flour, ranging anywhere from 10%-14%. If you are milling your own flour how do you know what the protien level is?
