Mixers/blenders

Does anyone know of a good mixer or blender system that can handle our superfine flours? I have been looking at something like the Ninja because it mixes with a lid on it which would be nice to keep the flour powder from going everywhere but it gets mixed reviews. Does anyone have something that they use that they have had good success with?

Our Kitchen Aid stand mixer has worked well for us for years.

(Superfine flours and all) No flours flying anywhere. (unless hubs is in charge :rolleyes: )

and the Cuisinart Food Processor handles the rest. (small breads, muffins, paleo breads, etc)

Hope this helps. :)

Are you talking about grinding your own flours or just using the flours? My VitaMix is great for grinding and like IH, my KA stand mixer is practically a miracle in the kitchen.

I should add: if you are talking about grinding, I use a coffee grinder for that task.

I actually had a nice stand mixer but it stopped dead in it's tracks and when I took it apart because yes, if it's already broken, I might as well break it some more, it looked like a lot of flour had lodged up inside of the housing and my guess is that is the most likely cause of it's untimely death. As I said in my original post, the ninja appears to be a good answer because it has a lid, which would help with the flying flour issue but some reports say that the consistency is not always, well, consistent and I was looking at using it mostly for cakes and muffins where the batter needs to be able to have some air incorporated into it. I just wondered if anyone here has had experience with it?

I got a Ninja for Christmas and use it for all sorts of things...mostly smoothies and things of that nature but I have ground almonds for almond flour before and was happy with the results. I use mine at least 5-6 times a week.

I didn't like the Ninja, took it back. That would not last in my house. Spend $ and buy a food processor, it works for so many different things! It's the only one to handle my nut butters but I still like to do it by hand. Wattage is the important key and being able to take it back if you don't like it! I make those nut butters in my Nutribullet, it has 600 watts! I love the thing but not for baking....

Do you find that the food processor works well for cake mixes and bread doughs?

UPDATE: Just purchased and used the Ninja 1200 for the first time and so far I love it! Used it to make the frozzen white sangria as listed on one of the recipe cards that came with it and it is (falsetto voice) Awesome!!! Had no problem unpacking it or taking it apart or putting it together as several stated that they had in their reviews. And look ma! No cuts either. Not sure if this makes me a rocket scientist or if I fall under the category of babes and fools but so far, so good.

I have a Bosch stand mixer because I read that it is best for gluten-free flours. It was expensive but I have had no problems with it. Then again, I have never owned another stand mixer so have nothing to compare it with. I have heard nothing but good things about the Ninja though/
