Grinding Whole-Wheat Flour at Home with the Victorio Grain Mill

No, this isn’t about ground beef. This is about flour.

Last year, I became intrigued by grain mills. What a great idea — so I thought. That lasted until sticker-shock set in. The whole idea was put on hold as “nice idea, too expensive.” You can literally spend hundreds upon hundreds of dollars for a grain mill. Some are quite attractive to look at, but still, they’re expensive pieces of kitchen equipment. Trolling through Amazon taught me that there are great varieties out there. Some do a better job — apparently — than others, but at the end of the day, unless you buy one and try it, you don’t really know how it will work or whether it will fit your needs.

Our needs were basic: Just something to grind whole-wheat flour or whatever strikes my fancy. I don’t see myself as a daily grinder, but many do. Who knows, with enough passion, it could happen!

Trying Out the Victorio Grain Mill

In a recent trolling trip through Amazon, I came across a Victorio grain mill, and I checked it out, as I already own their food mill, and love it. It was under $100, so with a click of the mouse, said mill along with some bags of Bob’s Red Mill whole grains, were on their way.

Loved this artificial on the Victorio. I have the deluxe model and can grind corn as well as garbanzo beans. I opted for the hand crank model for now and maybe in the future Ill get the motor for it. Sue is right about one thing, can't beat the flavor of fresh ground flour.
