WonderMill Review & Giveaway

WonderMill

I have been milling my own gluten-free flour for 10 years using a WhisperMill.  However, the WhisperMill went out of business and was replaced by the WonderMill which along with a few minor changes has an improved motor.

Given how pleased I have been with my old mill, I was more than happy to review this newer mill.  The company is interested in reaching the gluten-free community because they know, like I do, that the WonderMill works great with gluten-free grains.

A grain mill is not a small purchase.  You will have to spend about $260 to buy a WonderMill.  However, it is a one time purchase.  The WonderMill comes with a lifetime warranty and is the longest lasting mill in the world.  It was tested by continuously grinding whole wheat.  The mill ran for 9 1/2 hours and ground 1,000 pounds of wheat without ever burning up the motor.  Other mills lasted less than half that time.  You can view the video on YouTube.

I believe that in the long run, milling your own flour saves money.  Generally, it is cheaper to buy whole grains than it is to buy flour.  Rice in particular can be bought in large quantities at low prices from a local grocery store which means no shipping charges.

In addition, whole grains such as sorghum, millet, brown rice, and quinoa are best used as soon as the flour is milled since oxygen depletes the nutrients.  This can be done when you have a flour mill right in your own kitchen.

The WonderMill is very easy to use and to clean.  It is loud, as are all flour mills, but you will be amazed at how quickly it turns whole grains into flour.  Here are a few of the flours I like to grind with my mill.

gluten-free flours

Clockwise starting at top left:  sorghum, millet, rice, and corn flours.

You can adjust the coarseness of the grind with the pastry, bread, and coarse settings.  I usually keep mine on the pastry setting.  I tested rice at the three different settings and could tell very little difference.  My contact at the company said that would be the case with rice, but you would see more of a difference with wheat.

I did grind some corn, popcorn to be exact, at the coarse setting and ended up with a cornmeal texture.  That was exactly what I was hoping for.  I have not yet tried this in a recipe, but it looks and feels just like cornmeal so I expect it to work fine.

The rice flour, even on the finest setting, still has a bit of a gritty feel to it.  I have been using this type of rice flour in my recipes for years and do not notice a gritty texture in my baked goods.  Sorghum and millet produce a flour that is lighter and less gritty.

    Wow I would love to win this! I have always thought a mill would be a great investment just to be able to mill your own flour for food storage, since grains store longer than millled flour.

    • helen says

      I think I it would be exciting to grind my own gluten free flours. They would be so fresh. mmmmmmm!

  2. says

    I have been eyeballing grain mills for some time now. I’ve looked at one that attaches to my Kitchen Aid, but always seem to come back to this one. I love the reviews I hear about it. Thanks for offering this giveaway.

    My goal is to make gluten free bread from scratch. The store bought gluten free flours are alright, but I think milling my own would put my breads over the top :)

  3. Zusiqu says

    I’d also love to win this mill! I cook a lot and have been gluten free for 7 years.

  4. Andrea F. says

    I would love to win this! It would be a lot of fun trying different grains!

  5. Kathleen says

    I have delayed buying a mill because of the expense. I would love to win this one!

  6. Kay says

    I had never thought of grinding grains myself. I would love to try this mill!

  7. Jeanne says

    My daughter are gluten sensitive and we’ve looked into buying a mill but the cost is, at the moment, prohibitive. We would love to be able to mill our own gluten free flours!

  8. Felicia Saucier says

    I would enjoy winning this mill; we can’t afford to purchase one anytime soon due to the cost. Thanks for this contest!

  9. Jill says

    This mill would be a HUGE blessing to my entirely gluten-free family. We’ve been gf for 4 months. Over a two-year process of trying to get healthier, I’ve discovered that I have celiac. My husband and daughter both have ADD and feel and function better gluten-free as well. I am having such fun learning to bake with a variety of flours–especially brown rice, sorghum, millet, teff, coconut, almond. Quinoa is on my list to try soon! I’ve tried not to let the cost of the already milled flours be too much of a deterrent, but it is. I can definitely see the cost-effectiveness of milling your own, but a mill is also out of our reach right now. I appreciate your review of this one for future reference, though. It indeed looks like a wonder, and I’d be floored to win one! Thanks!

  10. Jill says

    I shared the giveaway on my FB page. If I don’t win, I’d love to hear that one of my friends did! :)

  11. Suzanne says

    The Wondermill sounds Wonderful! I’d love to win & be able to grind my flours as needed, since I have precious little space in which to store bags of flour.

  12. JoEllen says

    This mill would be such a blessing to our family! About four years ago, our one year old daughter was diagnosed as a severe Celiac. Since that time, genetic testing has revealed that our oldest son as well as myself carry the same genetic makeup as my daughter. So, we have become a GF family. The cost of going completely GF is much greater so I am always looking for ways to help keep costs down while still providing wholesome, gluten free meals. I have always wanted a mill to grind our own grain, but since we are a one-income homeschooling family, luxuries like that always seem to fall to the back burner. Thank you for such a blessed opportunity!

  13. kim ledford says

    I would love to be able to grind my own grains, I live in a rural town and finding gluten free products is not easy. Eating out is not a great option either, everyone thinks i can’t have “glucose” not GLUTEN!!?!!! So this product would be a great addition to my kitchen!

  14. marlene says

    I love your blog, it has helped me out very much with our new celiac diagnosis. I am looking for ways to save money, so grinding my own flour might be my next step.

    Thanks,
    Marlene

  15. Cindi says

    I am the confirmed member of my family with gluten intolerance and all of my family is showing great results from the glutenn-free lifestyle we have now adopted. Since I never realiaed that a home mill existed, I am really excited about the Wondermill. What a lovely investment for such needed nutrition.

  16. says

    Hi Linda:

    I subscribe to you emails and I’ll tweet about it on Twitter http://twitter.com/#!/allergeena I’ll post it on Face book http://www.facebook.com/Allergeena?sk=reviews and I’ll use it for gluten free grains only. I own a local bakery in South Portland Maine: Allergeena Gluten Free Baked Goods. I currently use my blender to grind my own potato flour from dehydrated potatos and my oat flour. What a wonderful tool to have in my pantry for future plans for whole grain bread recipes. Thank you for hosting this give away.

    Sincerely,

    Gina Sandora

  17. Kim says

    I love grinding my own flours. But hand grinding with one of the old grinders is exhausting. This would be fabulous! I’ve looked at them but haven’t been able to afford one.

  18. Beth says

    I just recently found your blog & am LOVING it! I have been looking for a grain mill for quite a while, this one looks amazing 😀 I am just starting on a gluten free diet at the suggestion of my GI doc, waiting for celiac test results but have many other GI & non GI “issues” that he believes will be improved by following a gf diet. This mill would be such a help as I am used to cooking/baking most of our food from scratch….gf flours are hard to come by around here & it would be so much easier to be able to mill up some rice, millet & others. :)

  19. Mary Kay says

    I’ve been gluten free for 3 years and it has completely changed my life for the better. No more chronic low grade depression is an improvement I never expected but for which am so very grateful. This mill would be the next step up in my kitchen endeavors. Thanks for your great blog which follow on Google Reader.

  20. Heather S says

    I would love a gluten-free mill. I have a WhisperMill I’ve used for wheat and loved, but I can’t clean it well enough to use for GF flours and haven’t wanted to invest in another one.

  21. Melissa says

    A grain mill has been on my someday list since I saw someone post about it a year or so ago. It would be much more economical to grind my own flours and it would be great to be able to grind some of my whole grains (like quinoa) into flour as needed.

  22. Gina says

    What a blessing it would be to our family to win this WonderMill giveaway! My husband has Celiac disease, and must be gluten, dairy and egg free. He is currently in the hospital for another intestinal infection. Your blog and emails have been SO helpful to me in learning about new recipes and how to help him in other ways, too. I cannot thank you enough for the wealth of information that you provide!!! We are also a one income, homeschooling family, so a grain mill is definitely out of reach for our budget right now. Thank you for the opportunity to enter your drawing and for all you do!!!

  23. says

    I bet this would be a huge money saver! I’ve never used freshly milled gluten-free flours, but I am now curious if it would improve the texture… I’m thinking more moisture?

  24. says

    Thank you for all you do to help us do the celiac thing! I am gf since March 1 and find I also need to restrict egg and dairy. Overall, I feel SO much better, though, and your posts are very helpful. I’ve even managed to make several gf things my family raved about… corn bread being one of them. I think grinding my own corn is an awesome idea. Then there would be no wondering about contamination.

  25. says

    Not only have I cut out gluten from my diet – I’ve also cut out processed sugar. But I’m a cupcake FIEND! I want to be able to make my own gluten free flour, then add my own natural sweetener to my cupcakes! This is one of the items on my “must own” list!!!

  26. Melissa Friend says

    I would love to win this! I’ve been gluten-free for three months now and feel so much better! I’m already sharing and helping others and am looking for ways to reduce the expense of eating gluten-free grains – and grinding my own would definitely fit that need!

  27. Kim P says

    This would be fabulous to have since we have a mill that we use for wheat and cannot be used for our gluten free grains. It is hard to be able to only gring fresh flour for the wheat eaters in our home while the rest of us have to use flours purchsed from the store but we are always concerned about contamination

  28. Cheryl Rector says

    I have looked into grain mills for months, but the cost is prohibitive right now. I would sure be grateful to win one.

  29. Nancy Archer says

    I have family members with severe Gluten problems. The little children in the famly are particularly affected & it puts a lot of extra requirements on their parents. Having this would be a wonderful way to help the family in their daily quest for keeping all of them healthy!!!!

  30. marg haffner says

    I subscribe via email. This would be an awesome addition to a gluten-free kitchen.

  31. Pat says

    Oh would I love to win this. I do a lot of celiac baking…husband, 2 daughters and their families and a granddaughter. It would be a true test for sure.

  32. Kim says

    I have been gluten free for almost 3 years now. I cook 99% of my food at home otherwise I get very sick. I hope to win this to cut down on the cost of gluten free baking. It would really assist me in trying to meet my budget every month and still eating healthy. Does the mill come with recipes as well?

    • says

      Kim, The grain mill doesn’t come with any gluten-free recipes at this time but we will consider making that change some time in the future. Thank You for the thought.

  33. Teresa says

    This would be great! I have been wanting to mill my own rice flour but the only person I know who has one uses it for wheat. I follow you on email and on FB.

  34. Stacey says

    I would love to win this. I have been really thinking about millig my own grains. I bake GF almost every day!

  35. Cherie says

    Hi, I shared this on my FB “Our Gluten Free Life” Hopefully some new people head on over!! ~Cherie

  36. elyse says

    HI, I’v been gf for 30 some years! I have always wanted one of these, espcially since you read about cross conmination in our flours. thanks for this opportunity.

  37. Kelly says

    I mill grains all the time, but in my coffee grinder. I would love to be able to mill grains all at once instead of a 1/4 cup at a time.

  38. Pau says

    My boyfriend found out about a month ago that he has celiac, and it has been, to say the least, a struggle. We randomly find out (mostly by him having a TERRIBLE day) that something we thought didn’t have gluten really does, and it takes him physically and emotionally back to square one. The other day he begged me to take him to get a sandwich ($14!) and having our own gluten-free flours would make this process a million times better on both me and him! Regardless of winning the mill, I am so excited to have found this blog, it will be a life saver!!

  39. Jeanette Fox says

    We are a gluten free family. I have an allergy to potato (and therefore the flour) as well as a corn intolerance. I would love a mill for quinoa, millet, and amaranth since that flour also tastes bitter when it is not fresh. Thanks.

  40. Lucinda says

    Our house is gf as I have Celiac and my children are gluten-intolerant. Being able to grind my own flour would save me money plus let me keep on hand only what I need. Especially since I live in a rural area and have to travel to town to buy my flours. Just putting some whole grains in the freezer or buying rice from the local grocery store would be so nice!

  41. Lucinda says

    I already subscribe to your RSS feed. I especially love your Saturday links. I find so much great information that way! Thanks.

  42. Penniless Parenting says

    Wow. I really, really, really would love to win this. I recently started going gluten free, and in an effort to keep costs low, I am grinding all my own grains… in my coffee grinder, which doesnt always get the grains so fine, so I end up having to sift out the coarse unground grain and regrind it… about 3 or 4 times for every cup I grind. I would love a real grain grinder!

  43. says

    Im looking to buy a mill for GF grains but would love one that ground rice to a superfine. I would most definitely mill all of my own GF grains.

  44. says

    OMG! Excuse the worn-out phrase, but I am so excited to see this mill. My husband attempts to make me flour via our coffee grinder. Ha! I am gluten-sensitive and so are a few of my family members. It would be so awesome to win this mixer as my current budget wouldn’t allow me to enjoy it at the moment. I would have so much fun making my own flour and making flour for my friends and family to encourage us in the new journey of eating gluten-free. Thank you for posting this contest and for your awesome blog! 😀

  45. Aubrey Munson says

    This would be such a blessing for our family. After my 6 year old cousin was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia (a life threatening blood disease), his mother switched him over to an all natural gluten free diet. This diet combined with a bone marrow transplant and amazing care at Cincinnati Children’s hospital is saving his life. This mill would be a priceless gift for the family as they return in the next month from the Ronald McDonald house and such a blessing for his mother as she continues this life long nutritional change.

  46. Robin says

    This would be such a great addition to our gluten free household! Love your website. :)

  47. Janice Glass says

    I have been dreaming a a mill to grind our gluten free grains. What a blessing it would be to win this Wondermill. Thank you for the possibility! Janice

  48. mare says

    I’d love to win this baby! Reminds me of the first time my husband wanted a sandwich and I said I’d start making the bread. Now I could say I’ll start grinding the grain!!

    I can only imagine how wonderfully fresh this would be and would love it for the more exotic gf ‘flours’.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  49. karen diskin says

    I would love to win something like this. With the price of all of the flours I like going higher and higher, something like this might help reduce the cost of my grocery bill.

  50. Plum says

    I am recently GF and am grateful for all of your excellent information. A grain-mill really makes sense for a healthy GF lfestyle.

  51. Holly Wagner says

    Oh My Word! I was so hoping for a chance to win one of these! Thank you for this contest! I would use this mill to make fresh flour for my DD who has Cystic Fibrosis and was just diagnosed with Celiac Disease in June (and is CRAZY picky), myself as I am gluten intolerant and was dx’ed at the same time and my other 4 kiddoes who are going in for Celiac testing this week. Gluten Free foods are sooo expensive to purchase that this would be a God Send for this single Momma.

  52. Susan C. says

    What a wonderful item to have. It would be nice to grind your own flours. They would be so fresh. My husband planted amaranth last year. Had I had a mill, I could have ground it into flour. I follow you through email. Thanks for the chance to win.

  53. Holly Wagner says

    I’ve just subscribed to your blog :)
    I usually read your posts linked to FB.
    Thanks again for this AMAZING contest and Congratulations on 3 years blogging!
    LOVE your blog <3

  54. Kristin Kowalski says

    It would be a blessing to have this mill! I get tired of trying to find suppliers of GF grains and then figuring out the best prices. Plus since our income is much less than it was a year ago, it would be great on the family budget.

  55. Holly Wagner says

    I just tweeted!

    @waggytail

    I would really LOVE to win this one, even the shipping isn’t going to hold me back!

  56. Holly Wagner says

    Last entry, I just shared your post on Facebook. Thanks again for this magnifient opportunity <3

  57. Rusty says

    Wow, I’ve been making GF for about a year now for my roommate to help her get used to the lifestyle. I quickly realized how expensive flour could be. This would be an amazing help towards continuing as I myself find most GF better now than their wheat counterparts.

  58. Kathleen says

    wow! what a great givaway. I have been looking at grain mills for years wishing to afford one. it is nice to hear that you feel it will save money in the long run. how grainy is the rice flour? more so than store bought?

    • says

      Yes, the rice flour comes out a little more gritty than store bought, but I do not notice grittiness in baked goods.

  59. Heather Brandt says

    I’d love to use it to help us save money in grinding our own gluten-free flours!

  60. Matthew Edward Peterson says

    I started gluten free a few months back because i had a feeling it would help me out in many ways. Since i have gone gluten free my mind has been clear and i have more control. I have gotten feeling back in most of my extremities and i dont feel so bloated all the time. It has been such a blessing. I am grateful for pages like this because gluten free is not easy unless you have help and support. But it is such a fun new way to cook and great adventure to see the benefits whether you are celiac or not. Thank you

  61. Dana says

    A mill would be awesome! I’ve been trying to ‘grind’ my own rice flour in my Blendtec, but it just doesn’t get it fine enough…

  62. Gretchen says

    I was a home baker (and pretty good, too) before I started eating gluten free, over a year ago. I stopped baking except for family birthday cakes, which are mandatory! I didn’t even know that grinding my own grains (and mixtures) was possible! It sounds amazing! Since I could never afford this on my own, I really hope I win!

  63. Christine Taylor says

    This sounds doable. I have a gf daughter and have recently joined her in eating gf. I had put it off due to the cost. This would help with that and it is bound to be better than the taste of some of the bought flours we have been using.

  64. Susan Riley says

    I would love to save money and enjoy fresher flours by grinding my own gluten free grains. I’ve been considering getting a mill ever since I read your post on milling your own gf flour.

  65. kati says

    it would be so nice to have my own mill. i do a lot of gluten-free baking and cooking and a mill would be really handy. thanks.

  66. Lynn Renander says

    I will post this giveaway on facebook. Would love to win this great prize and help our family eat healthier!

  67. Jamie Seigfried says

    I would love to win the wonder mill. I have been gluten free for over a year now and really would love to be able to grind my own flours. I like the aspect that it would cut costs of purchasing flour and who can resist making things from scratch.

  68. says

    I would love to win this! I am wondering if it will do the Garbanzo beans as I want to make my own Gafava flour since it’s so expensive. I found out I had Celiac Disease in May and am interested in grinding my own beans and flours.
    Thanks

  69. MNMacGill says

    I live in a bedroom community of Eugene, Or and have to order online my flour.
    Just as I was entertaining the idea of buying a flour grinder, this update arrived in my mail box.
    Thanks for the sign :-)

  70. Virginia says

    Oh Wow this would be really great to win. My daughter has Celiac (found out on her 13th birthday) so I make gluten free products for her. My husband & I eat many of the gluten free items as well.

    Thanks.

  71. Pam says

    OMGoodness! How sweet it would be to win this…!!! I was diagnosed with Celiac Sprue (hate to say the word ‘disease’, sounds contagious), back in 2006. Since then have been 99% true to the gluten-free diet. And it is TOUGH, for someone who has always loved pizza and pasta. Thank the Good Lord I like rice too. Now, almond flour has made it to the gf scene. And coconut flour as well. Everytime you turn around another company is making gf products. I’m sure it’s a ‘fad’ diet for some, but for us cd’ers, it’s a must. A way of living…not by choice. Thanx so much for offering this, it’s a fantastic give-a-way. I’d love to be the winner, but, I’m happy for the lucky one that does win it.

  72. Jennifer says

    I would love to start milling my own GF grains. Anything that would lower my grocery bill would be a Godsend!

  73. Dawn-Marie Valdron says

    I have followed your blog everyday since I discovered it after my son was diagnosed late November. He lives in a nearby town and I have had to rediscover cooking all over again. I have been intrigued by the grain mill but have put it on the back burner as many appliances had to be purchased for his place and mine in order to accommodate his gluten,dairy and egg free diet. Thank you for all your contributions to newbees like myself!

  74. Mary Jo Pearson says

    This mill would be very helpful and save me alot of money. Being on such a tight budget, I can not always afford to purchase the ground flours. What a treat this mill would be.

  75. says

    I’ve been on an uber-healthy & gluten-free diet for over a year now & intend to stick with it. I’ve been researching grain mills & wishing for the money to spend on one while I get my new backyard farming business up & running…. A free one would be simply amazing. :)

  76. Kristine says

    I would love to win this mill to make my own GF flours. Buying pre-milled gluten free flour can be expensive!

  77. Susan says

    This is one of the many new things I have wanted to try to help defray the high cost of gluten-free everything! Sounds like a wonderful machine and I would love to try it!

  78. christine says

    My family is recently gluten free due to my husband being gluten intolerant. Its been a challenge finding recipes, flours, flour mixes and this Wonder Mill would be an amazing tool to help me out!! I would love to be able to grind all my own flours!!

  79. Cathi says

    Would love to have this. . .I blieve it also grinds nuts too, which is what I’m looking for. I love Macadamia nut flour, but you cannot find it in any store or internet, and when you do it’s very expensive and not always fresh tasting. So, I am looking for a work horse of a grinder that will grind Macadamia nuts into flour for my Gluten free recipes.

    • says

      Cathi, you cannot grind nuts with this mill. You must put only dry grains in it. However, they do make a hand mill that is good for nuts and seeds.

  80. says

    I didn’t know that certain gluten free flours lost nutrients over time. That is one good reason to have a mill.

  81. Sarah S says

    I currently have a Magic Mill grinder, but need to get a new one that has not been used for wheat. I have always wanted a Wonder Mill. They are the most quiet grinder out there. I also love how you can control the setting on it!

    I also subscribe via email.

    I posted this on my facebook page.

    I tweeted about the contest too!

    Congratulations on THREE years!

  82. Lu says

    Would love to grind my own flours-the fresher the better. Not to mention saving a little money on all those GF flours!

  83. Vicky says

    I would like to submit my entry for this WonderMill giveaway. Thank you very much for this review and opportunity. Receiving one of these relatively expensive mills will make a big difference to the quality and cost of gluten free food to a happy Celiac.

  84. Betty Rood says

    Have been wanting to get one of these now and maybe i will get lucky..Just like the ones above it would be an awful good blessing to get one.I also live in small rural area in south alabama and its not easy finding gluten free items for the family.We raise 3 of our 5 grandchildren ,age 3,6, and 9 on one income .The youngest 2 have adhd and ocd and by trying to use more and more toward gluten free items i have heard would help.Thank you so much for this giveaway and good luck to each of us 😉
    alwaysatryin2 at gmail.com

  85. Betty Rood says

    i have a couple of questions,,# 1 how long in generial should the flour last when milled yourself
    #2 have u had a chance to try the meal yet? When i was younger we did our own and i so loved the cornbread (fried and baked) made from it..

    thank u so much and what a great review ..
    alwaysatryin2 at gmail.com

    • says

      Hi Betty. This is just my guess. I use my flours pretty quickly. I would say it should last several months. Some are better kept in the refrigerator or freezer. I always keep my brown rice flour in the freezer. Sorghum and millet seem to do okay at room temp.

      No, I haven’t used the corn meal yet. I plan on using it for cornbread, but don’t turn the oven on very much in the summer.

  86. Christine says

    I would LOVE to win this! I would like to start grinding my own flours. That would be so excited to have fresh GF flours!

  87. Brenda says

    I would love to be able to grind flours at home. More importantly, to teach my 18 year old celiac daughter, so she will be ready to conquer this new world of eating on her own.

  88. Lindsay says

    I just learned that I have celiac’s 5 months ago. I have been wanting a mill to continue baking and eating processed-free foods. Do you find that the brown rice has a more gritty texture than the white rice or are they the same? What about the tastes of the flours? Thanks for your blog… I loved reading and realating to your story. That’s important for new celiacs!

  89. Patty says

    I am an email subscriber. Wow! When I saw this give-away I couldn’t believe it. This is an awesome prize that anyone would enjoy. I was diagnosed with Celiac almost 2 years ago. Like everyone else, I would agree that it is so expensive to keep buying flours. I can’t even imagine how wonderful it would be to just grind my own flour and have fresh flour to use for everything. Thankyou so much for the opportunity to enter this contest. I would use the mill every week. And of course only Gluten Free.

    Grinding my own GF flours would be a huge benefit to our family as we have 9 gluten intolerant family members.

  91. Terri says

    I would love to be able to grind grains at home and save money. I am very interested in “retro” ways of doing things – usually much better than the “new” ways. Thank you.

  92. Kirsten Martin says

    Had to sell my old grain mill when diagnosed with celiac. Would love to have a new grain mill that wasnt contaminated, so I could have freshly ground flours again!!

  93. S Wallace says

    Having two Celiac’s in the family we go through quite a bit of GF flours around here. This mill would sure come in hand and cut costs! Been talking about buying one, but winning it would be even better :) Thanks for the opportunity.

  94. says

    wow! I would love to have my own mill! We’re planning to plant some grains like quinoa and amaranth in our garden so this would be great!

  95. says

    I subscribed awhile ago. Love your blog! I bake a lot of GF meals, muffins, and snacks for my hubby and two kids. I have wanted to purchase a Wonder Mill for well over a year but the cost is holding me back. I would love to grind fresh gf flour!! Thanks for your blog. It’s been so useful to me and I have shared it with others!

  96. Kim Belongia says

    This mill would enhance my cooking experience. My son and I both have celiac disease. Our entire home is gluten free. I absolutely love to cook for my non celiac friends and they love my cooking. Winning this mill would absolutely open a whole new set of doors for me. I am keeping my fingers crossed!!! Thank you so much for offering this give away!

  97. Pam Fahy says

    Nice review of the mill. It certainly makes me want to own one.
    I am the president of the local celiac support group and pass on info from your blog to the group.
    I would love to win the mill to use for GF purposes!!
    Thanks for offering such a great giveaway.

  98. Pam Fahy says

    I follow you on Facebook. Not sure how to post this giveaway on Facebook…But will give it a try.

  99. Pam Fahy says

    If I had a blog I would certainly mention this giveaway.
    I’m on twitter, but haven’t tweeted yet.

  100. says

    This is such a great giveaway! I no longer live in the Boston area, where finding gluten free flours was a breeze, now I have to special order them online. This would make life so much easier!

  101. Anissa Kline says

    Wow, I would love love love to win this mill! My daughter was recently diagnosed w/ celiac disease and I do all her baking/cooking for her seeing as she is in college. This would save a lot of money for us in the long run!
    thanks!!!!

  102. Susie Smith says

    This would be such a wonderful investment for saving money on Gluten Free flours. I didn’t even know this existed. I will definitely be saving my pennies to purchase this machine. Thanks for sharing the information.

  103. Janis S. says

    I would love to win the wondermill to grind my own flour. I’ve had lots of unexpected bills the past 2 years, so buying one is definitely not in the budget for now. Thanks for your great blog!

  104. says

    I love that the Wondermill can grind so many different grains and nuts and make so many types of flours. I don’t have one, but I’ve used my in law’s. I especially like grinding popcorn (yes, regular old hard kernel popcorn,) to make corn meal. I’ve found lots of recipes that use it to make excellent, chicago like pizza dough.

  105. Happy In L.A. says

    I’m a 1st time visitor–thanks so much for blogging! We have some great gluten-free bakeries here in L.A. (especially Babycakes), but they do not use organic bean flours. Due to chemical sensitivity, I would like to grind my own organic fava and garbanzo beans. Though I’ve yet to try it, I wonder if my Vitamix can really grind legumes fine enough for baking. More so than the Wondermill, I think the Komo Magic Grain Mill may be better suited to this purpose. The Komo is made of beautiful beechwood and stainless steel rather than plastic.

  106. says

    I would love this to make gluten-free flours. While I am not on a GF diet any longer, I do have friends and family that are and would love to bake homemade treats for them that are GF.

  107. Lynnette says

    I soooooo want to win this so I can grind gluten free flours for my daughter. She doesn’t seem to do well with foods that have gluten in them so this would be a great tool for her to start with. :)
    I also subscribed to your blog. I am excited to look around it and learn more about being gluten free.

  108. Amy R. says

    I would love to win this mill. I’ve been wishing for one for awhile.

  109. Susan W. says

    I would love to be able to grind my own flour. This sounds like just the thing.

  110. Tiffany Galvez says

    I’ve been looking at buying a grain mill for months now. I just purchased a hand crank on so that I can use it with my food storage/in emergency situations as well; BUT I’ve been researching for one that would save me some time grinding as I have 2 kids under 19 months. I would love this mill! (I just subscribed via RSS and an on my way to tweet it!)

  111. Tiffany Galvez says

    I’ve blogged, FB’ed, and tweeted this page! I’d love this mill!

  112. alix says

    i would love a grain grinder. last year my son was dx with type 1 diabetes, insulin is his life line.
    we immediately went gluten free and low carb. i sold my grinder thinking i could never use it again. now, we cannot afford another one. all the gf flours i purchase taste old. i would love to grind as i need it to provide the most nutritious foods for my son and family.

  113. Melanie says

    This would be wonderful to have while going through the Gluten free adventure. That’s what I call it.

  114. Tara says

    I would LOVE to win this Mill. We just learned out we need to start a family member needs to start a gluten free diet and this will give us options

  115. Tara says

    And facebooked…. CAN YOU TELL I WANT THISA THING??? I am so happy to have found your blog what a wounderfull resource. Thank you for sharing a peice of you with all of us :)

  116. Heather says

    I think it would be so nice to be able to grind all of my own fresh gluten free flours and not have to worry about them going rancid. The long lasting motor could grind what I need for the day/week/month (depending on where I’m at in life) and could really make life convenient, even for a Allergy Free Family!!

  117. Heather says

    I just posted about this awesome giveaway on my Facebook page. I hope to win!!!! This would be so great!!!!

  118. Jill says

    I have a grain mill and can’t use it because I used to use it for wheat (before Celiac Diagnoses) With a family of 6 on a gf diet having a grain mill would definitely help our already super tight budget!

  119. Jeanne Leder says

    Oh, how I would love to win this mill! Then I could stop storing all those different gluten-free flours in our freezer! I have a whole shelf filled! It would be soo wonderful!

    • says

      Generally tapioca flour and tapioca starch are used interchangeably. What you buy, even if it is labeled flour has the same feel and consistency as the starch. I have tried grinding tapioca in this new mill (I couldn’t in the old one), but it turned out much grittier than what I buy and worked differently in my recipes. It was also not any cheaper. I usually buy tapioca and potato starches in 5 lb. bags from AllergyGrocer.com.

  120. Gail says

    I have saved your post from June 2011 when you talked about the Wondermill Whisper Mill and have looked at many times but haven’t ordered one yet. So I would love to win one.

  121. Jeanne Leder says

    I really enjoy getting your blog every day, and look forward to it. It’s great!! I’m still learning, even after being gluten free for 28 years! Sure would like to win the Wonder-Mill!

  122. Jennifer says

    I just newly subscribed to your newsletter. It is great! My son, who is four, was just recently diagnosed with many allergies. He can no longer have gluten, soy, and dairy. As well, as many other things. I’m still getting used to this kind of cooking, especially the baked goods. We buy our flour, but it would be so nice to grind our own.

  123. Jackie says

    I never even thought about grinding my own grains…This would be great. We have been gluten free for about 7 years. (My daughters and I)

  124. says

    Wow! This would be FANTASTIC for my sister, who was diagnosed with celiac very recently. She has always loved to cook, and I would love to see her be able to keep doing so, without having to pay such a premium on flour!

  125. says

    Pick me! Pick me! I would love to have my own mill!!! I currently use the heck out of my food processor and coffee grinder for making almond flour, nut butter & spices, but I would LOVE to have a mill to make things like brown rice flour & millet flour! xoxo

  126. RC says

    I subscribe via email – My girlfriend is gluten-free. This product sounds amazing for her. Great site!

    • says

      Tia, this mill does not work for nuts. You want to avoid anything with a high moisture or oil content. They do sell a hand grinder that works for nuts though.

  127. Linda says

    I love that it has a lifetime warranty. Having freshly ground gluten free flour will be a fantastic money saver as well as a flavor enhancer!

  128. Edna Dodge says

    I would love to win a wondermill for my Gluten and casein free family.

  129. Shelly Dax says

    I have known about my wheat allergy for over 17 years, back in the days when it was sooo difficult to find GF products. Now, I am so pleased that it is readily available and there are wonderful blogs like yours with super recipes!! I love to cook and bake and I have really wanted to make my own pasta for years. Imagine how delicious it would be to grind my own grains and then make fresh pasta for the family!! I would love to win the MIL! YAHOO! :)
    S

  130. Scott says

    A mill would be great. When I was first diagnosed we went and bought all these flours, and then didn’t know what to do with half of them. Some sit around for a long time. Would be nice to just mill what you need.

  131. says

    We are in the process of converting over to gluten free as a family, and having the ability to mill my own flour would be HUGELY helpful! I had gotten out of the habit of baking my own bread due to the lack of flour availability, but a mill would definitely change that. Ah, fresh baked bread again. That would be lovely!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  132. says

    I have been grinding buckwheat & quinoa in my blender. It doesn’t come out super-fine. Would love to be able to experiment with other flours!

  133. Carmen E. says

    We eat GF here in this house and I would LOVE to grind my own flour!!! Wow- what money it would save!

  134. Gail says

    It is so worth it to make your own flour. I use a coffee grinder to make much of my own fresh flour. Love it!!

  135. Melissa says

    I would love to own a home mill. I am new to GF and one of the things that has discouraged me is how expensive many of the GF flours are. Baking has always been one of my favorite pastimes and I’d love to have less expensive access to high quality flour, as well as control over the style of grind and the blend. What a neat giveaway!

  136. says

    A mill like this would be a great way to have fresh flour as well as being more economical. Some flours I do use up quickly, but some of them last a long time for me, so even a small package may be in my refrigerator for a long time!

    Congratulations on your blogiversary!

  137. Gail says

    I subscribe to Gluten Free Homemaker via e-mail. Thanks for this great giveaway Linda!

  138. Susan says

    I subscribed to your blog via e-mail. I would love to be able to grind my own gluten-free grains fresh as needed and be able to store the whole grains for a longer period of time. I’m a lifetime baker, and I had to learn the art and craft of it all over again a year ago when my doctor told me I’d have to avoid gluten for the rest of my life. Thanks to wonderful bloggers like Linda, among others, I’ve been learning how to use these different grains. As so many others have said, the flours are usually very expensive. Thank you for giving us a chance to win the WonderMill!

  139. Eric says

    I like to bake the occasional baguette. One time I met a farmer who told me that he grew wheat. He generously invited me to his farm and gave me a few containers. I ground some up to see how it would compare to the store-bought all-purpose stuff I’d been using. Wow! I’d never tasted such great bread! Ever since then, I’ve made it a point to grind my own wheat for my baguettes. Sometimes I even make up a little batch of homemade butter to go on that bread. Absolutely a little taste of heaven on earth! :)

    • Eric says

      Oops! I forgot to mention that I’ve since had to begin a gluten-free diet, and so, now, more than ever I appreciate the opportunity to mill my own flours from whole grains.

  140. Nikki says

    The Wonder Mill would be such a blessing for my gluten free daughter and myself. We love baking from scratch and this would add a whole othe dimension to our experience.

  141. Katherine H says

    I was just looking at mills… we live in rural Kansas and I have difficulty finding things and when I do find them the cost is amazing!! I would love to win this!!

  142. missy says

    This would be great to win! It would be a great help in eating gluten free!

  143. says

    I think this would be a great addition to the kitchen. I could buy my gluten free grains whole and store them in the freezer, milling when I needed flour. It just has a very homey feel to it and I think I may make more use of grains I previously didn’t take advantage of. Nice giveaway.

  144. Liz says

    My friend has one of these and loves it. She has ground rice for me many times in it. I’d love to have my own for all of my gluten-free baking.

  145. Andrea says

    I would love to win, I have been shopping for a mill for a long time.

  146. Stephanie Wilson says

    Making my own flour is so much cheaper than buying it in the store.

  147. Nancy says

    This would be such a great tool to have! I have to go every week to a friends house and “borrow” her mill to grind our GF Flours. There are few choices for GF around us and what choices we do have are expensive (as it is for everyone I am sure!)
    I really appreciate the information you provide, so much easier than trying to figure it all out myself!

  148. Kelli says

    I would love the Wonder Mill, I am a newly found out gluten sensitive and am learning my way around in the Gluten Free world.

  149. Joan says

    Hmmm… A mill for different grains…That would be very helpful!! Especially if I am able to start my own GF Baking business…

  150. says

    This looks like a fantastic product. I think it’s convenient that you can grind regular rice and popcorn to make gf flours. Sure would be a handy product since I have Celiac.

  151. Andrea says

    Some grinders have metal and stone burrs. Can the wondermill do it all with what it has? What are its limitations?

  152. Nancy says

    Did you use a specific type of popcorn? Never heard of using it (popcorn) before!

  153. Tracy Beaudoin says

    I am really new to the gluten free diet. Recently I discovered I am allergic to several food including gluten, wheat, yeast, and eggs, to name a few. I live in a rural area of Alaska which makes it extremely hard to have the right ingredients on hand. You have inspired me to look at grinding my own flours. I am now very excited about this idea. Hoping to have a chance at your giveaway! Thank you for the opportunity!

  154. Tracy Beaudoin says

    I shared this opportunity on my facebook page! I know several people who are gluten free!

  155. Shirley J. Pulawski says

    It would be such a thrill to have a grain mill at home! Since being diagnosed with celiac disease last year, I’ve been working on re-learning how to make old favorites from scratch, but I have wasted a lot of very expensive flours in the process, on things that didn’t turn out very well! I’m looking for work right now, so anything that would help cut those costs would be fantastic! I’d especially work on making crackers. There are good GF crackers available locally, but they cost a fortune!

  156. Shirley J. Pulawski says

    Also, do you know if it works with tiny seeds like amaranth? I haven’t been able to find amaranth flour, only seeds, and I’ve read that it can be too fine for some mills.

    • says

      Yes, it will grind amaranth, but you need to pour it in slowly to keep it from going into the mill too quickly and clogging it up. You could also buy their small grain adapter which sits in the hopper and controls the flow of grain going in.

  157. says

    that would be amazing to win this. We have two gluten free peeps in our family (husband, and sister in law) and BOTH families could really use this!!! It would be a blessing to us, especially since we live an hour away to the nearest store that sells gluten free flours :(

  158. Kathleen Phelps says

    Thank you for offering this wonderful gift on your blog. I too am gluten intolerant. I’m so grateful for the incredible generousity of those who have gone on before me on this journey. Your willingness to share all that you’ve learned with the rest of us is amazing and appreciated beyond words. I would love to have an opportunity to grind my own grains with this wonderful mill. Again, many thanks for your generous heart.

  159. Donna Bass says

    I had never heard of this. Would be great to win one. I have several people I know that need gluten free and what a great gift this would be for them. :)

  160. Pegeen malone says

    Oh, how I would love to win this, I have been struggling with celiac for years, what a difference this would make!

  161. Kjirstin says

    I would LOVE to have a grain mill!! I am currently gluten free for my (nursing) infant, and have lots of friends and family that are gf as well…this would certainly come in handy!

  162. miriam says

    My husband asked me just the other day, “Why don’t you make your own flours?”. I told him that I would love to grind my own flours, but don’t have a grain mill. This would be a wonderful surprise! Also, knowing what is in my ground up flours is extremely important to me. A grain mill would solve this issue! Thanks for offering such a great giveaway!

  163. January Croke says

    I have been cooking gluten free for about a year now. Having a grain mill would make cooking and baking so much easier. I feel like I need to shop all over town to get the flours I want. I would love the convenience of keeping the grains in the freezing and milling my own when I need them.

  164. Samara Anderson says

    I would love to be able to mill my own grains. I have been doing more and more at home since I was told to go GF and this would be really helpful for me.

  165. says

    I have been grinding grains in a coffee grinder or regrinding them in a food processor. I have looked at grain mills and reviews but could not decide which one was the best one at a reasonable price.
    I would really love to have this mill so I can have finely ground flours on hand at all times
    Thank you for this review and giveaway.

  166. says

    Tweeted @glutenfreesista and retweeted your tweet

  167. says

    I would love to win this mill. I bake everything from scratch and make lots of gluten free bead, muffins, pancakes, etc. for our entire family. I’m been toying with the idea of buying a mill for some time, but our financial position is such that we really, really can’t afford it. Although, I do think it would save money over the long run. I work very hard to be frugal in our gluten free lifestyle and a mill like this would really help.

  168. RobinN says

    This is such a generous offer. I sure hope I am fortunate enough to win the mill. Thank you for sharing your recipes with us, too. I love to cook and bake, and of course, it our home is gluten-free. How wonderful it would be to grind our own flours.

  169. Karen says

    What a lovely thing! I’m gfcfsfef and sugar free… Imagine being able to grind my own flour!

    Can you also grind nut flours using this? Oh, that would be loverly!!!

    • says

      No, you cannot grind nuts in this mill. You want to avoid anything with a high moisture or oil content. They do sell a hand grinder that is supposed to work well with nuts.

  170. Bobbi Stark says

    We recently discovered that my daughter is gluten sensitive. Now we are trying to find the easiest way to make bread products that she actually likes using gluten free flours. I would love to win the mill and be able to make our own flour. The bread in stores is sooo expensive and tastes terrible. :o(

  171. Helen Vosburgh says

    I would love to win this grain mill. I am currently using a hand crank mill and while it is good for the arm muscles, I would love a break :)

  172. Bob Stark says

    Just recently my daughter was diagnosed to be gluten intolerant. This was such a relief to know that she didn’t have some other serious ailment. This contest is perfect in your timing seeings how my daughter is taking over most of the cooking. She has found some gluten free recipes for bread but without some kind of mill to grind she was at the mercy of those bagged mixes. And again the timing is uncanny, because we have a friend out in Vermont that was trying to convince us to start grinding, which we thought was the better way to go, but without the money it left us wanting. So to all those out there WonderMill is the best to own. Good Luck!

  173. says

    I used to teach workshops showing women how to grind their own fresh wheat flour and use it to make delicious bread. Imagine when I learned I actually had a gluten intolerance! I have an old-style mill that sounds like a jet engine taking off and I have worried about cross contamination, so I haven’t used it to make gluten free flours. I would LOVE to have the newer Wonder Mill and start teaching women how to cook gluten free! Thank you for your blog which has been the source of many a good recipe!
