Pros: Ease of using, quality product, much more quiet than other grain mills, LIFE TIME WARRANTY!
Are you looking for a way to improve your health? Have you heard how important whole wheat is in our diets? Have you seen the price of Whole Wheat Bread in stores? The Whisper Mill is a great way of helpin you make WONDERFUL whole wheat bread in your home!
The purpose of the Whisper Mill is to put wheat berries into and turn it into flour. To use the Whisper Mill you first must have good whole wheat berries. I prefer Golden Pairie Wheat Berries, which can be purchased through many food co-ops. You just put in 8 cups of grain in the "hopper" and out comes 12 cups of fine flour! To clean it, just wipe it with a cloth. So easy to use...so easy to clean! It stores very easily and does not take up much room, It measures approximately 12 inches high and 8.5 inches wide. E
You also don't have to limit it to just milling wheat! You can also mill oats, rice, triticale, kamut, spelt, dried pinto beans, dried green beans, popcorn, split peas, buckwheat, barley, rye, millet, sorghum, dried mung beans, soybeans, dried corn and chick peas. The Whisper Mill is adjustable from normal bread flour to the finest flour for pastry. You cannot mill coffee beans in this because of the oil in coffee beans.
What a great teaching instrument this also is for children!
Show them a real field or a picture of a field of wheat growing. Next show them the wheat berries and how it is made into flour. How we take for granted just buying this from the store.
The other wonderful and main reason we use the whole wheats, is that once wheat is ground into flour, it within 24-48 hours it looses much of it's nutritional value. White flour in the store has hardly any nutritional value whatsoever! Your grinding your own wheat and using it right away...this is how you get the full nutritional value!
For some of the technical information on this great little machine, it grinds nearly 100 lbs. of flour per hour. Its strong 1-3/4 h.p. motor is maintenance-free and runs on standard 110 volt current. The uniqueness of this machine is its innovative Microburst milling chamber. Scores of stainless steel fins spinning at high speed literally explode grain to produce a very fine flour. There is no gumming, jamming or glazing, and it never overheats.
And yes, it is QUIET, compared to other mills! It has the normal "hum" of a vacuum. I used another mill for awhile and had to make sure my baby was at the other end of the house because the noise scared her so much!
I highly recommend this Whisper Mill if you are looking to better your life and begin making wholesome food from scratch, especially bread. There is nothing like freshly baked bread and this Whisper Mill will help you get it! Can't you smell the bread baking now?? :)
