The original review was written back in 2005. Since then, KitchenAid has replaced the plastic gearbox cover with one made with metal. This review may be outdated at this point, but accurately reflects the problems we were having back under the previous design.
Original text from February 18, 2005:
This attachment reveals a design flaw in the Kitchenaid Mixer design. Inside every Kitchenaid Mixer you have a transmission/gearbox that drive both the mixer and the accessory drive shaft. This gearbox has a PLASTIC cover that holds all the gears in place.
The grain mill attachment places the *most* stress on your kitchenaid, more than any other attachment you can buy. What happens is when you're grinding wheat, it heats up that gearbox and the plastic cover starts to flex, and if you run it more than 10 minutes it'll heat up enough to break the plastic.
I bought this attachement for my wife for Christmas 2004. It broke the transmission and stripped the gears on the mixer in January. We removed the cover and saw the cracked plastic. Kitchenaid promptly sent a replacement mixer even though ours was "out of warranty". This tells me that they KNOW about their design flaw.
We got our shiny new Kitchenaid Mixer the next week. My wife took it out of the box, attached the grain mill and started it grinding flour. Within 10 minutes the plastic cover failed on the new one. Kitchenaid sent out a new one, again. We're now on our third mixer and we're looking to get a refund from Kitchenaid for the Grain Mill so we can go out and buy a real wheat grinder.
It's really sad. All Kitchenaid needs to do is put a metal gearbox cover on the transmission and you could grind wheat into flour non-stop. I can't believe that they're willing to stake their good name on a plastic part!
This is a great an "cheaper" way of getting a wheat grinder. ;o )
*****Update 5/12/11-I have had some issues with my kitchen aid mixer since using the grain mill. It's slowing down and making strange noises. My sister in law called kitchen aid because when she bought and used the grain mill it broke her mixer. This grain mill according to kitchen aid is not recommended for use with a machine that is not at least 500watt and in the professional series. I'm pretty upset that we had to call to get that information. I've looked and looked everywhere online and in the manuals and I can't find it. It seems pretty shady to keep that info to themselves.
Dinged it a star because:
- limited to grinding 10 cups of flour during a session, then having to wait 45 minutes for the motor to cool. Instructions do not delineate between professional series mixers and smaller models so not sure if this is an issue for the bigger mixers.
- blades are steel - long term storage requires disassembly and coating blades with mineral oil to limit rust. Must clean initially before first use to avoid clogging
- housing is fairly substantial aluminum, hopper holds about three cups of berries. The housing does rock and roll a bit when you grind at the finest setting for flour in a single pass; nothing broke and I guess it would be ok, but seeing the deflection in that housing left me uncomfortable.
Bottom Line - ok for occasional use. Buy a dedicated device if you have 10 kids and make bread every day from fresh ground flour as I can't see this holding up to serious use for any length of time.
-Easy to attach, use, clean, and put away.
-Doesn't take much storage room.
-Not insanely loud (it is loud.. but not ear piercing loud like other stand-alone mills I've heard).
-Doesn't heat the flour as you mill it.
Drawbacks to this grain mill are related to your intended use.
-There is a size limit to the hopper (I don't grind enough at a time to have this bother me).
-You can only grind so much grain before you have to let the motor cool (again, I don't grind enough at a time to worry about this).
-On the finest setting, the grain isn't as fine as a $200 plus mill, however, this mill didn't cost $200 plus.
I usually start milling on the finest setting, and then run all of that flour back through on the finest setting. Twice through makes a noticeable difference, three times is unnecessary.
