Bottom line, grinding your own flour saves you money, and has considerably more food value than flour purchased from the store. All-purpose flour has gone through a series of steps to take all of the fiber and bran out of wheat. The resultant product is void of any fiber, which is equivalent to glue in your digestive system. Wheat flour that you buy in the store, although more nutritious than all-purpose flour, also has had some of the outer bran removed so that it doesn’t spoil as fast. Grinding your own flour is hands down more wholesome and nourishing. Fresher flour also produces better, more flavorful baked goods.
Buying the Blendtec Kitchen Mill Grinder for me was a no-brainer purchase. After buying a couple of bags of Gluten-Free specialty flours, I knew there was a cheaper alternative, so I looked for a way to save money, the answer? Grind your own flour, especially if you are Gluten-intolerant. I can grind:

  • Amarynth
  • Teff
  • Quinoa
  • Garbanzo beans
  • Popcorn
  • Brown rice
  • Buckwheat

I buy in bulk for a fraction of the cost that you buy the flours pre-ground when I grind them in the Kitchen Mill.
Another thing that I love about my grinder is that I can get all kinds of flours, packed with nutrition, that aren’t available at the store. For example: Teff flour. I love Teff flour in Gluten-Free baking, and I have had a hard time finding it in any store.

Teff flour is extremely nutrient dense, because it is contains a large amount of germ and bran due to the size. Germ and bran is found in the outside covering of grains. Teff is the smallest grain in the world, It takes 150 grains of Teff to equal one wheat kernel, making it full of germ and bran. It is also high in protein and fiber.
I have found Teff flour sold at IHerb. I recommend buying a grinder and grinding your own for the above reasons mentioned, but in the mean time you can try IHerb’s Teff flour.
I usually grind a few flours at once, use what flour I need, and then store the rest in my freezer to preserve more of the nutrition. That way I always have what I need on hand.

A few reasons that I love this grinder in particular are:

1. It is powerful—the motor can handle grinding even beans to make bean flours.
2. It doesn’t make a huge mess. The compartment where the flour is ground into is completely enclosed.
3. It has a control setting that grinds flour from super fine to coarse. I always grind most of my flour on the super fine setting, which makes excellent brown rice flour.
4. It has never gummed up or gotten clogged on me.

    Will the mill let you “crack” your grains, like oat groats or wheat? Most mills only let you grind them into flour. ie: Steel cut oats

    THANKS for putting a list of what you grind in this mill online. I’ve used the mill for many years, but it didn’t come with any info on what it was capable of grinding. I love doing rice flours it really does make them nice and smooth. I’ve done millet, popcorn, garbanzo, beans, quinoa, and buckwheat, but I was wondering about teff. I can’t wait to try it.
