For electric, I have the grain mill attachment for my KitchenAid stand mixer (have all the pasta making, meat grinding, and fruit/vegetable straining attachments too, so I don't need a bunch of separate appliances.) For hand crank, I have a small one from Germany, as it was all I could afford (OR have room for!)

Can't help it, SciFiChick! the thing is just SO versatile, with all the different attachments...I use the fruit/vegetable strainer when I make things such as apple butter, can also use the grinder to make ground meat, have the sausage stuffer tubes, the grain mill, and pasta making rollers and plates. I use all of the attachments, but have yet to use the mixer portion!

Ice you don't use the mixer part? what about baking bread? I love doing that, it's so easy, just dump in the stuff, let it mix, and you ready to shape a rise.
the mixer is the ONLY part I use... every day.

Empress, when I bake bread, I usually just do my mixing by hand...heck, I usually do ALL my mixing by hand...I can have it already done in the time it would take me to drag the mixer from in the back corner of the counter and get it set up. Just like when I made cornbread tonight...just mixed it by hand.

OK, the cornbread recipe is now in the "Food storage and recipes" section. I created a thread called "Cornbread". The spaetzle recipe is in the "noodles" thread.

IceFire will a grain mill attachment for the kitchenaide grind coffee beans too? I don't see why it wouldn't but I don't really know.

Thanks!

Kitchen Aide has a grain mill attachment?
I need something to grind almonds into meal or flour..
I use almond flour in a lot of my diabetic recipeds and the food processor I have is not up to it.

I did buy the Komo grain mill http://www.amazon.com/Tribest-WM001-Gra ... B001DZ6TGA
But you can't mill oil holding grains, seed and nuts. So I wanted something else, which I also could use hand cranked. I came up with this one:
http://www.lehmans.com/store/Kitchen___ ... 3150?Args=

I only bought the wooden thing and the grain mill. They had a special adaptor for my kitchen aid. So I guess I am all done:)
HOpe to recieve this witin a couple of week (I live in the Netherlands so I get my grain mills from Germany).

Hope this helps!

For grinding almonds (and other nuts as well) into meal, what I did was get a 2nd small coffee grinder, that I have "dedicated use" for doing nuts. It works well. I've done almonds and pecans in it for nut meals--the pecan meal I used to make a flour-free "crust" for pies. I can tell the grinders apart, because the one I use for coffee is black, and the one for nuts is white.
