An American Housewife Uses: Fall... makes you think of pumpkin all.the.things and homemade bread. So - this post? My WonderMill Wheat Grinder

  Really super quick post here as it's something I've posted about before but I like to re-post some things once in a while (including some recipes) because so many people are new to HousewifeBarbie.com.  

We don't eat a lot of wheat flour as we are typically pretty low carb, but when we do, it's wheat I grind myself that I've purchased in wheat berry form. (Except at Christmas when I'm baking 1000+ items and obviously I opt to buy the large 25 lb. bags of flour!  Ha!)

For those of you who already know this is the mill I use, you can skip today's post.  I've posted about my mill(s) a few times over the years.

For the rest of you who are interested or who have never thought about it before, this is the grain mill I bought years ago and still love, still use and still recommend.   I love my manual mill(s) as well but for quick and easy, this is my go-to.

WonderMill

The WonderMill can grind over 100 pounds of flour per hour and handles wheat, corn, rice, legumes, beans, and other small grains like Quinoa and Amaranth. 

Some of the items not to mill in the WonderMill are:  Almonds, Cacao Nibs, Cardamom Seed, Cashews, Coffee Beans, Dried Coconut, Flax Seeds, Peanuts, Pine Nuts and Walnuts (all too oily). 

 
Note:  You can see I have Palouse brand wheat berries in my photos;  this is actually the brand I've bought and used for almost 10 years (?) now but I may try a couple other highly recommended brands for my next orders. 

Generally speaking it's a great product and I've never gotten a pebble or anything in any of the bags that has caused havoc with my WonderMill.  They are very clean wheat berries and great quality.  Over the past 10 years I've ordered both direct from their website and through Amazon

However, in all honesty, I did have some issues with my last shipment from them that one of my 4 - 25 lb. bags never shipped. 

I had ordered 100 lbs. direct from their website and got the individual notices when each of the 4 shipping labels had been made and were waiting to be shipped so I could track them.   Within a day or two, three (3) of the four shipped but the final one was still in 'label made' mode.

Sure enough, only 3 were delivered and those were the 3 with shipping notices. 

It took a lot of emails to customer service to get them to even answer me and when I did they weren't really nice to work with.  I pointed out the paperwork and online records show 4 shipping labels created but only 3 actually were shipped, I thought I was being helpful - but that didn't go over well with them and I had a terse reply that of course it shipped (with no label or tracking?) it must have gotten lost.  They acted like they were doing me a 'favor' to ship the missing (and paid for!) bag.

(Funny, I got all the updates this time showing it labeled, received by the shipper, a tracking number and every stop made until it got to my house with no problems.)
Anyway!  You can order wheat berries and/or a WonderMill on Amazon if you wish.  I order wheat berries in both smaller 5 lb. bags (like the photos) or in 25 lb. bags in which I divide up and reuse the burlap bags since I have so many of them after using them for so many years.

  The electric WonderMill - in use in An American Housewife's kitchen for almost 10 (?) years now and still works as perfect as the day I bought it.
