Three mill choices - which do you recommend?

These are in my price range - each week I bake several loaves each week or home consumption, along with a batch of crackers and pizza dough. I live in Montana where a number of my grain farmer friends are experimenting with heirloom/heritage and landrace grains and I want to mill my own flour out of their berries.

Here are the choices that fall in my price range:

WonderMill Electric Grain Grinder (Selling for $199)

Mockmill 100 Stone Grain Mill (Selling for $249)

NutriMill Classic 760200 High Speed Grain Mill (Selling for $219)

(Prices are as of today on Amazon)

Thanks so much!!

I had the Nutrimill and just sold it and bought the Mockmill 200.  I love the new Mockmill.  It's fast and not too loud.  That would be my choice.  I've not heard anything bad about it.

May I ask why you sold the Nutrimill.  I just finished using mine this morning to grind some Khorasan and the lid separated on the hopper. I have a huge amount of flour to clean up and am thinking about the the Mockmill. Thanks

based on Ian’s recommendation. It is great! You can get it on sale now at Breadtopia! I use them for almost all of my grain/ flour needs.

I have the Mockmill 100 also, I am very happy with it. Sorry, I can't compare to the others.

I haven't seen the Mockmill models in person, but have seen the ads.  In general, a stone mill, like the Mockmill, will give you much more control over how fine the flour is, and that is a good thing for a mill. I had the predecessor to the Wondermill, and while it was fairly quick, it was extremely loud.    I would go with a Mockmill if I was looking for a new mill.

Looks like I have my shopping list whittled down to the Mockmill - now I have to count my pennies and see if I can manage the 100 or the 200.

Much appreciate your input!! I'm really looking forward to milling at home since I have so many friends growing grain here in Montana and willing to experiment with some unusual grains. What fun!!
