When we first started our first storage adventures we actually didn’t even know what wheat kernels looked like. The whole idea of storing wheat, grinding it, and cooking it without electricity seemed so foreign and daunting to us that we didn’t even try to tackle it for almost a year.
One day I was visiting a friend and she had a wheat grinder on her counter and I started asking her all about it. She showed me how it worked and sent me home with a little baggie of flour and a bread recipe. All of a sudden I realized that wheat was flour, and I knew how to cook with flour! I borrowed her wheat grinder every few weeks until I could afford my own and when we finally purchased our WonderMills our food storage lives changed forever. In fact, we even did a post titled 17 Ways to Use a Wheat Grinder a little while back. Yes we use them that much!
The two mills we have always recommend are the WonderMill and the NutriMill. You can’t go wrong with either option. We preferred a few of the WonderMill features over the NutriMill when we did a side by side test so that is the model we went with at the time. However, NutriMill just came out with a BRAND NEW mill called the NutriMill Plus that we are excited to try out. Here are some of the details in comparison to the classic Nutrimill:
The NutriMill Plus boasts 11 new patented improvements. It is 15% quieter than the Classic mill and has 20% more capacity than the classic NutriMill.
The Plus mill is uniquely designed to nest compactly inside its flour canister for a 30% smaller storage footprint than the Classic mill. With its patented 4-stage filtration system and included flour bagger accessory, milling at home is clean and convenient. We are so excited to get our hands on one of these and try it out in another little side-by-side comparison!
