Has anyone ever used the Kitchen-aid attachment for grinding grain? I am thinking about getting one if they work well. I would like any feedback or opinions.
Although I don't have one myself, I think RLB critiques it in the Bread Bible.
I do have this grain mill and it works fine. I first put my grain in on the control setting that is 4 slots from the fine setting. Then I put the grain through again on the fine setting. It takes two times. I have the 6 qt. model. So, I can put 5 cups through and then put them through again. It then is too hot and I have to wait about 1 hour if I want to do anymore grain. This mill has alot to offer in the grain settings. And you don't have to worry if there is a stone in your grain, it won't hurt the mill, which is nice, because I read the micro type of mills can get ruined from a stone. I really like my Kitchen Aid and want to get more of the attachements. The mill also, is so much more affordable than most other mills on the market.
I purchased my KA grain mill in the mid '80s and have used it regularly.
I discussed my experience with it in depth on this thread on milling grain - scroll down to get to the discussion on the KA mill
