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/

    • Make sure that you ask the doctor how long she has to stop the supplements before you have her levels tested and be sure to take them all with you when you have the appointment so the doctor knows what she is taking.
    • Talk to your doctor. With your family history and symptoms he/she may be able to diagnose based on resolution of your symptoms and family history. Also check with your local hospital if it has it's own lab.  Mine covered any labs at a greatly reduced cost based on a sliding fee scale. Did you have an MRI before they did the spinal? Celiacs with neuro impact will have white spots on an MRI that resemble the lesions found with MS. Many neuro doctors don't know this. I went through what you did and they did a spinal on me also based on the MRI results. If my doctor had know what the UBOs (unidentified bright objects) were I would have been diagnosed a couple years sooner than I was. Make sure if you supplement that you ask your doctor which ones you need to stop taking and for how long before they do a blood test to check levels. Sublingual B12 is a good idea when we have nervous system issues, but needs to be stopped for at least a week for an accurate blood level on testing. I hope you get some answers and feel better soon.
    • Thanks for that.  Will get her tested for deficiencies.  I did take her to a naturopath and get her on a bunch of vitamins, but she never was tested via bloods, so will get on to that, thanks  
    • Hi Could a mod please move this post:   and my reply below to a new thread when they get a chance? Thanks! Matt
    • Hello and welcome Firstly, don't worry about it but for ease your post (and hopefully my reply) will probably be moved to its own thread. That will make it easier for others to see it and reply and also help Galaxy's own thread here on track and making sense.  The antibodies that the celiac tests look for can drop very quickly, so... maybe? Celiac is difficult to test for, there are different tests and sometimes someone doesnt test on one but does on the other. If you can get a copy of the tests and post it here the community may be able to help explain the results.  It may have shown damage to the villi, the little tendrils in your intestine that help you extract nutrients from your food. Celiac is one, but not the only, way in which they can get damaged leading to a vast number of potential symptoms and further making diagnosis a tricky proposition. Definitely, there's a connection. Here's a page that explains it in detail: https://stomachachefree.wordpress.com/2012/03/21/liver-disease-in-celiacs/ Fantastic  It sounds as if your doctors were happy to diagnose you on the basis of the endoscopy? It may be then that you've found your answer. I hope so, you've clearly had a rotten and very scary time.  I'm sure with the positive reaction to the diet you want to go on and get healthy, but I would only add that you should discuss this with your doctors, because they may want to exclude other potential causes if they've not confirmed celiac at this point. Check out the advice for newly diagnosed here: To your family I'd simply say that celiac is a disease of the autoimmune system, the part of our body that fights diseases and keeps us safe. In celiac people the autoimmune system see's the gluten protein found in wheat, barley, or rye grains as a threat to the system and it produces antibodies to attack it and in doing so attacks it's own body as well. It's genetic in component so close family members should consider a test if they have any of the many symptoms. There's roughly 1 person in 100 with celiac but most of them don't know it and are risking getting or staying sick by not finding out.  There's further info for them and you here: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I'm going to ask a mod to move your post and my reply to a new thread, but wanted to give you an answer first The good news is you've found a great site and there will be lots of support for you here. You've also got 'lucky' in that if you're going to have an autoimmune condition, celiac is a good one  Most react really well to the gluten free diet and you will hopefully have much more healing to come!
