Grinder On Kithen Aid Mixer?

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if anyone has used the grinder attachment on a Kitchen Aid stand mixer to make flour?

I was thinking about getting a KA Pro mixer to make bread, and that is already expensive. So if I can get away with just getting a grinder attachment instead of a seperate grinder, I would be happy.

So if anyone has experience with this, please let me know if it works.

Thanks!

I used to own a KA mixer and wasn't thrilled with it. When I looked for a new mixer I did a lot of research since at the time I was making 6-10 loaves of bread a week. What I ended up buying is the The Magic Mill DLX Assistent and I love it. The thing I like the most is that the bowl, not the beaters are motor driven, so it doesn't stress the motor as much. I also like that the motor housing/base is all metal. I know that they have a number of attachments, including a grain grinder. If it is made as well as the rest of the mixer-it is a great product. I have had my mixer for almost ten years now, use it almost daily and it works as well as the day I bought it.

Good luck!

I used to use the meat grinder a lot when I cooked for more than one person. It did get a crack in it, but it's on its second mixer and probably 30 years old, and the crack doesn't seem to affect it, so I can't complain. I don't like that wooden dowel you're supposed to cram the meat down the chute with though. It's not sanitary...maybe they've replaced it with plastic?
