help with choosing a mill please!

August 7, 2012 - 10:09am -- happy

Please help me I am rippign my hair out and need to buy SOMETHING


I know there is info scattered about this somewhere but I cannot find what I need still. 

I need to grind flour as I bake my own bread.

If I am going to buy something mroe expensive I want something that can mill other stuff as well. 

I preffer a natrual stone mill as to avoid metals when I can, but I understand that I would have to have a burr attachment as well for other things. That is ok.

Hints on finding the right mill

November 3, 2009 - 1:34pm -- violet

I know there are a number of excellent mills for different applications, so I hope I get this detailed enough to really pinpoint which will work best for me. Thanks in advance for your advice!

I'm looking for a mill that can accomplish the following;

can mill coarse or very fine flours (dry grains) for baking, pasta, hot cereal, pastries, gravies, cakes, breads, etc.

does not heat the flour (over 120 farenheit)
