Can I just say how in love I am with my NutriMill? Seriously!
Before I got my hands on this beauty, I was working hard hand grinding our wheat. Every day I would stand at my kitchen counter and grindâ€¦ and grindâ€¦ and GRIND. It took a while. Itâ€™s definitely nice to have a hand grinder in case of power outages, and I love the one I haveâ€¦ but for everyday use itâ€™s quite a workout to grind those 4-5 cups of flour needed to make one loaf of bread!
Call me a sissy, but I just couldnâ€™t keep it up. We were seriously lacking in the baked goods department.
Something had to give. I needed more power! So I hopped online and read every review I could find on electric wheat grinders. They are definitely an investment, so you have to know that itâ€™s gonna be worth it. After Iâ€™d compared all of the options out there, the NutriMill came out on top every time. I had to have her.
The package had hardly touched my doorstep before Iâ€™d scooped it up and ravaged the box in search of my most coveted prize. It was a breeze to fit together, and before I knew it she was ready to roll. I could hardly wait.
The kids all crowded around in awe as I took her for a test run. I poured the grains into the hopper, closed the lid, checked the manual one more time, and turned her on.
The sound was a bit like a vacuum cleaner, just not quite as loud. To me, the humming was beautiful. It was the sound of my wheat being groundâ€¦ effortlessly! I could hardly contain my excitement.
In just a tad bit over a minute (1 min. 8 sec. to be exact), 2 cups of wheat berries were finely ground into 3 cups of gorgeous flour. Amazing!
Iâ€™d read reviews of some electric grinders being messy, and resulting in a cloud of flour all over the place. People complained that they had to do their grinding outdoors or in the garage. I was very pleased to find that with the NutriMill I had no dust whatsoever on my counter top after grinding my wheat.
I cannot even begin to tell you how pleased I am with my new electric wheat mill. Yes, I would still highly recommend a hand mill for emergency situations (Lehmanâ€™s has a nice selection of these as well). But if you plan on grinding wheat daily, you do not want to be without a NutriMill.
