Grind wheat, oats, corn, rice, and other low-moisture, low-oil grains. This all-metal grain mill simply attaches to the hub of your stand mixer for quick and easy milling. Choose from 'cracked' to extra fine consistency. For everything you want to make. KitchenAid.
Cooking from scratch is made easier with a stand mixer, and made all the more literal with this grain mill attachment. Use it to make flour out of wheat, corn, rye, oats, rice, buckwheat, barley, and millet--any low-moisture, non-oily grain (peanuts and coffee are a no-no with this tool). Make up to 10 cups at a time. The mill is sturdy, heavy, and easy to assemble and attach to the mixer's hub. Adjust the knob to the desired grind, fill the unit with grains, and crank it up to 10. When you're through, brush it clean with the small brush included in the kit. If you need to, wash it by hand, but don't put it in the dishwasher. --Betsy Danheim

I was using King Arthur flour prior to this - so already something decent - and after baking bread milled from hard red winter wheat? Totally blows away the store-bought. I was shocked how much better it was. There is depth and dimension to the bread that was simply not there before. I just can't go back and after using up what store-bought I have, I probably will never buy flour again.
How well does this mill work? Pretty good for the price I'd say - if you already have a real kitchenaid (more on that later). If you want a fine flour and are using a hard wheat you'll want to mill it about 2-3 times. If you want something coarser for a rustic bread - 1 or 2 runs through. Yes that's correct - you'll need to run it through the mill more than once for most flour. Dealbreaker for me? No. Do I think this matters for the average person? No. You gotta be realistic for about $100 you're getting a pretty good mill (all steel construction), but it's not perfect. If you want light duty commercial, then go pay $2-3k for a small commercial mill. For the typical baking enthusiast who is going through maybe 2-3 lbs/week? This is perfectly adequate. You can run it on speed 10 on a real kitchen aid and it takes no time at all.
One criticism - the flour kinda drifts about a bit. My solution was to set my tall bowl atop something so it's right underneath - easy fix just have something sturdy underneath.
Okay I said you need a real kitchenaid for this - Personally I have a Pro Line (DC motor). If you have the Commercial (AC motor) that's probably Okay too. Artisan? Forget it. Buy a hand mill or get one of the other powered mills out there.
I would not run it for too long not to stress the motor, but for one or two loaves of bread at at time, that'll be fine.
I love this gadget.
UPDATE: Upon having used this for a few months, I've decided to purchase a dedicated grain mill. This does not grind wheat fine enough for pastry-type applications. It is still a good purchase, and great for grinding larger things (corn, beans, etc.) that grain mills usually can't fit through. Also a great first passthrough device for larger things.
I am removing 1 star (not due to the grind size) because I've learned you have to hover over it as it works. I filled it up with grain (only holds 3 cups at a time, thank heaven) and walked away. A couple of minutes later, I heard a horrible crunch then crash. The 'bolt' that holds attachments had worked loose, the grain mill had flown off the mixer and hit the bowl of flour sending wheat berries and flour flying in every direction at once. I was displeased. Do you have any idea how far a wheat berry can fly, bounce, and skitter? Don't leave it unattended and check bolt often.

I've used it for grinding wheat, also tried it with coffee beans.
That works it is only a bit more work to get the coffee out of the grinder.Read more
