Overwhelmed with Mill options
I've been grinding my grains with the Vitamix dry container but I want to move up to an actual grain mill. In a perfect world I'd be able to do everything from grinding peanuts and sesame seeds into butters, cracked grains, coarse to fine dent corn (I've been buying corn meal in 3 different grinds), rye, wheat fine enough for pastry flour and the mill would work manually when needed but mostly used electric and be portable. From looking around I don't think I'm going to find that all in one mill.
Originally I thought I wanted the attachment for my Ankarsrum, which I guess is the Family Grain Mill brand. After watching the you tube video by Only Grain Mills, I wasn't very impressed. It seems slow and it also doesn't appear to grind very fine. I do a lot of pastry baking. I thought the Nutrimill would be great but reviews seem to indicate that it's great for pastry and bread flours but I'm not sure I could really get a good coarse cornmeal grind with it. I like the option of regrinding but I think with an impact mill I wouldn't need to anyway. The Komo classic looks great too, and it seems to have a wide range of options from fine to coarse and I like that the setting is clearly marked, but I'm not sure how I feel about the ceramic mill plates.
I have also looked at the Diamant, Country Living GM, Grainmaker and Wondermill Jr. And while I think the first 3 are beautiful, if I'm honest I really don't want to do the work to hand mill, pay the extra cost for convert them to electric and I want something I can put away when I'm not using it.
