Grinding your own flour is one of those kitchen tasks that sounds smart—it tastes fresher, has no additives, and is less expensive—but also arduous. This countertop electric mill from L’Equip takes all the intimidation out of the process. You pour whole grains into the top compartment, adjust a dial to deliver coarse- or fine-ground flour, and up to 20 cups fill the bottom bin—it’s as simple as a giant coffee grinder, fast, and (with the cover on) not terribly loud. We loved how you could adjust the fineness of the milling: We poured in supermarket popcorn and dialed up fine cornmeal for muffins; then we switched to coarser cornmeal for pizza dough. And the Nutrimill goes beyond grains, milling rice and dried beans (split peas, soybeans, pinto, and mung). Best of all, it comes with a lifetime warranty, so you can mill to your heart’s content. It costs $300; find a local or online dealer at Kitchenresource.com.
