The Wheat Grinder

Many people have asked me what kind of wheat grinder I use. That's easy, I use my Vitamix blender, because it does all kinds of things, from wheat and grain grinding to making soups, smoothies, and much more. See www.vitamix.com.

If you'd prefer a single use type of product, there are many on the market. Check out some of these:

You can start with a less expensive hand grinder that doesn't use electricity: http://www.pleasanthillgrain.com/schnitzer_grain_mill_schnitzer_grinder_shnitzer_flour_wheat_hand_grinder.aspx

or: the Hand Crank Manual Grain Mill/Wheat Grinder by Victorio- Kitchen Appliance to Grind Grains- Emergency Food Storage, http://www.amazon.com/Grinder-Victorio-Kitchen-Appliance-Emergency/dp/B0018P54TS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1240024043&sr=8-2

or: http://www.mykitchencenter.com/Details.cfm?ProdID=1393

However, if you're more worried about ease of use and can afford it, I recommend either the Vitamix, or that you try one of these: Nutrimill, http://www.pleasanthillgrain.com/#Nutrimill

or: http://www.pleasanthillgrain.com/family_grain_mills.aspx

In any event, choose carefully based on what you'd like to do with it. If you plan on grinding a lot of wheat at a time (more than 10 cups), you may want a true grain mill. Check for noise levels too.

Let me know what you choose and how you like it.

Hey mom, we love our Vitamix as the wheat grinder. I have also tried to make Horchata, the Mexican rice drink, but I don't have a cheese cloth to strain... so it probably could have been better. But the Vitamix did great!

Hey mom! We love the Vitamix! We also made Horchata with it (the Mexican rice/cinnamon drink), it would have been fine but I need cheese cloth to strain better.
