Joy's of Homemaking- Wondermill The World's Best Electric Grain Mill Review!

As you probably read previously on my blog I have been baking home baked bread for my family. Baking your own bread not only saves your family a lot of money, but is more nutritious as well. However, the key to achieving the most nutrition possible with home baked goods is first using quality ingredients. Why would you want to bake your bread with flour that has had all nutrition stripped out of it and is no longer fresh?

Some facts about flour found in grocery stores.

#1)Wheat Flour - Retailers need flour that will have an extended shelf life. To create a flour for preservation the wheat flour is striped of the most nutritious part, wheat germ. Within days of being ground the wheat can start to lose it nutritional value. Even if you are buying 100% whole wheat flour from the store, it has lost much of it's natural nutrients.

#2)White Flour - You are not receiving any nutrition from white flour. Having it's nutritional parts removed, being highly processed and bleached, (for that "white" look) is like eating dirt. Whole grains which take a longer time to be digested, absorbed, and broken down are stored for energy. White flour immediately raises your blood sugar levels, the same way sugar does. That means after you eat it, your body has two choices: either burn it off immediately, or store it as fat. If that isn't enough reasons to avoid white flour, I don't know what is!

Why grind your own fresh flour?

#1) More Nutritious - You will reap all the wonderful health benefits from your wheat. You will have a flour that is superior in nutrition to any flour you will buy in a grocery store.

#2) Taste Better - Your flour will be fresh and will taste much better. There is no comparison to the taste of baked goods made with fresh ground flour then using old flour that may have gone rancid!

#3) Cost Less - Grinding your own grains is more cost effective than buying commercial flour. Whole wheat berries can be purchased in bulk for less money and will last a long time if stored properly. Saving money on something that is more nutritious for your family not only makes good financial sense but is an investment into your health!

Now that you have a little education on why grinding your own flour at home is important, let me introduce you to the WonderMill....

The WonderMill is the world's cleanest, quietest, easiest to use mill. You can create super fine flour or course flour at temperatures that preserve nutrients, ensuring you will always have the perfect flour for your food. The WonderMill has the capacity to perform big jobs. You can grind over 100 pounds of flour in 1 hour. You don't have to worry about overloading the WonderMill because of it's large 1250 watt motor!

The WonderMill can go beyond only grinding wheat. With the WonderMill you will be able to grind rice, legumes and beans as large as garbanzos! You can grind popcorn kernels to make fresh ground cornmeal and other small grains for flours such as spelt, oat, millet, bran and more!

I have greatly enjoyed the WonderMill. I never knew grinding my own grains could be so simple! The first time I used the mill I ground brown rice. It literally ground a whole bag of rice within seconds! I store the rice flour in my refrigerator and have been making my baby healthy homemade rice cereal with it. Another great way to get some added nutrition into your family's diet is add bean flour into your cooking. Soups and stews are great for this as well as babyfood. I ground a full bag of pinto beans and the WonderMill ground them into a perfect flour quickly and easily!

To use the WonderMill all you need to do is turn the mill on and start adding grains, beans, etc. The flour canister will fill with flour and be ready for use or storage! That is it! No messy clean up and very little flour dust! The WonderMills flour canister can hold up to 13 cups of flour! You can store your unused flour in it or transfer to a separate container. I recommend freezing any unused flour as this helps prevent nutrient loss.

Here is a video I made showing how quick and easy the WonderMill grinds wheat berries. It only took 55 seconds to grind one 2 pound bag of wheat berries. It gave me 8 cups of flour which is enough to make 3 loaves of bread!

In this video I will show you how quick and easy you can make your own cornmeal grinding popcorn in the Wondermill. It took only 1 minute 5 seconds to grind 2 pounds of popcorn!

Grinding your own grains will only take seconds of your time and give you and your family added nutrition to your diets! Completely worth the added effort.

Here is a video from WonderMill's site that demonstrates the power of the WonderMill. It is built to last and will not bog down even after hours of use!

It will pay for itself in a short time and with the money saved you will always have the ability to grind your own fresh grains every time you bake!
