Grinder That Was Used To Grind Wheat

Recommended Posts

Pre-celiac disease, I had a years supply of wheat stored. I gave it all away to church members whan I was diagnosed. One thing I have not been able to part with is my electric wheat grinder. It is a Whisper Mill, and I paid $200 for it. I used it A LOT to grind wheat as I was really into baking my own bread with freshly ground whole wheat flour. In retrospect that seems like such a stupid idea. :rolleyes:

My question is this: do you think I could ever get my grinder clean enough to use it for gluten-free grains? It cannot be diassembled. I can clean the chute out with a toothbrush and then run a boatload of cheap rice through it to try to slough off any gluten grains that are remaining. I am having SUCH a hard time getting rid of it since it was so expensive. I have not used it, but I can't let it go. I think the answer is probably no, but I am hoping tha tone of you has a gluten-free magic wand for me.

I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be able to clean it well enough to be safe. However, you could list it on eBay and then put that money into getting a new one.
