I discovered that there is a widening crack in my attachment for my Bosch Universal. The ebay ad said there was a crack, but I had not been able to find it until now. Perhaps it was exacerbated when I dropped it. At any rate, my flour has become much coarser now.
My spending limit is $250. I’ve been looking at both impact mills and stone mills. I looked at some of the less expensive steel burr mills, but none of them will grind fine enough for what I want to do.
Currently I have narrowed the list down to 2 mills:
The Nutrimill - an impact style mill that pulverizes the grain at super high speeds into micron size particles.
The Komo Fidibus 21 - A German stone mill that is visually stunning and well reviewed.
At this point I am leaning toward the Fidibus 21, but am still considering the Nutrimill. I am primarily concerned about possible high temperatures and possible excessive starch damage caused by an impact mill.
I would love to hear comments on either of these mills (or any other mill for that matter) from people who have used them.
