Rice Grinders

I want to get my own rice grinder to make rice flour. It is so expensive at the store and come in such small packages! I was hoping I could get some good brands from a few who have experience with these machines. They look pretty expensive to be buying the wrong one. Thanks for any ideas!

I have a Nutramil...have had it since 2008...I grind my own flours....rice, buckwheat, popcorn (I use popcorn instread of corn, it is easier to get from the grocery store, and cheap), The mill works pretty good, but I don't know if there is a grain mill that is better...I am not familiar with other mills.....When I want oat flour...I use rolled oats, and chop it up in my processor.....Yes, the mill was pricey...at that time about $280...at that time I believed the Nutramil to be the best one for me.....I didn't want to pay the prices for flour in the store either....and that is partly the reason for buying my own grain mill....plus I know what's in my flour, and it's fresh....I have found a supplier of milo...and plan on getting some of the grain to grind into flour....

Thanks! With all the talk of contaminated rice I'd prefer to make my own rice flour and I've always been OCD about what's in my food (even before Celiac). This information is useful, thank you :)

I have a Vitamix that could shred a hockey puck to dust. It's my favourite kitchen "power tool". They are very expensive but they last decades. Great for smoothies, soups, food processing and making flours.

I use my KitchenAid mixer for anything I can find an excuse to use it for. I only have one attachment for it at the moment which is the shredder/slicer which I bought for cheese and hash browns because I simply don't have the stamina or strength to shred them by hand. I have often considered getting the grain mill for it but just can't decide if it would be worth buying. If I ever do get it, I will certainly weight in here on my opinion of it!

    • Hello! My daughter was diagnosed with Celiac non-biopsied about 6 months ago. When I recently went for my physical, I mentioned to my PCP that my daughter was Celiac, she said that I need to be tested. I took a blood test that day and here are the results: Anti-Gliadin IgA                     Gliadin Ab(s) IgA - 18.23U/ml    -      Standard Range: 0-15 U/ml   - Result: Positive My PCP told me to start a gluten-free diet right away and she will re-test again in 6 months. I was expecting a full panel, like my daughter had, not sure if it is necessary or not. We elected not to put my daughter through a biopsy, as she was just recovering from a ruptured appendix and her GI Dr. agreed that he numbers were so high that she was fairly certain w/o biopsy that she was Celiac. My DD feels so much better. Do you think this test is enough for me to start the gluten-free diet? I actually have cut way back on gluten, as I somewhat eat what my daughter eats. So my test may have reflected that decrease. Should I ask for more testing? Is this test sufficient? Thanks for any assistance!!  
    • That's hard.  You can try the "I come to be social,"  "I have serious food allergies", "I only come to drink"...... whatever might feel comfortable.  I know celiac is not an allergy but more people understand if you say celiac is like a severe food allergy.  Do go, have fun.  Don't let food stop you.  Yes, people give looks but honestly they get to know that this is just you and hopefully they will come to accept it. 
    • I thought it had all died down too so I started buying them for my celiac daughter. 4 boxes were fine. The 5th made her very sick for over a week.  Beware!
    • Agree!  That is a difficult spot to be in.  I have a friend who insists she can cook for me.  I have tried the "I come for the company, not the food", "I am celiac.." etc.  I finally gave up and said "I love you but no!".  It's very hard.  Very hard!  But stay strong.
    • I never ate at the fair but always "rewarded" myself with a nice glass of wine at the wine and beer patio!   The corn on the cob might be ok but I have to agree with the poster who mentioned that stuff at the fair probably isn't terribly clean.  Stuff your purse with snacks and enjoy.  My partner would feel bad about eating in front of my and I would just - I don't feel bad so that's your problem, not mine! lol
