Who Will Mill The Grain Into Flour? I Will!
Mill your own flour at home – it is easier than you think! This handy attachment for a KitchenAid mixer is so fun to use and offers the ability to make fresh flour from grains that aren’t always easy to find. Fresh-milled flour ensures that all the nutrients will be available and the flavor is at its finest. And it’s really fun to do!
Wolfgang Mock Invented the MockMill
This flour mill attachment is the very first product launched by the Wolfgang Mock, Inc. which is the American subsidiary of the German company that has been building home mills since the 1970’s. They are rebranding to bring these mills to American cooks who want to have the ability to do “Just-in-Time” milling in their own kitchens. Mockmills are compatible with a long list of mixers, so they will be removing the title “KitchenAid” from the name of the product.
“Unlike the metal burr or cement-bonded composite stone attachments, Mockmill has a true ceramic-bonded corundum stone, which produces very fine flour and will not wear down in time.”
Lots of Fun and I Love This Book!
I have to say that I am really excited to have this attachment for my mixer. When MockMill offered to send it to me, I thought, “Well, I’ll try it out, but I doubt this is something I’d really use.” When it arrived I was so impressed with the quality, the beautiful design, and the ease of use. MockMill was nice enough to send along a book about the history of milling, the reasons to mill flour at home, all the details of nutrition, different grains, and fascinating facts about flour that I had never thought about. I’m excited to learn more and try different kinds of grains in my cooking now.
Easier Than I Expected!
When I first unpacked the MockMill, I was so surprised that it is easy to use! I expected to spend some time figuring it out, but it only has a few parts that go together in a very intuitive way. The instructions recommend that you grind some brown rice in the machine first (to be thrown away) before anything else, just to get any mineral residue off the new grinding stones. Grinding that rice was really fun! Just seeing that flour come pouring out of the grinder was thrilling. I felt like a pioneer!
I couldn’t wait to drive to town to see what whole grains were available at my local health foods store. I realized later that I could grind dried peas, lentils, or oats already in my own pantry but it was fun to see what my local store had to offer. I came home with some red wheat berries and some rye grain. This morning I found a recipe for chocolate cookies that uses rye flour, so I ground up my rye grain with the MockMill. Fun!
Let’s Read “The Little Red Hen!”
You know who is going to love doing this? Children! They can pour the grain into the hopper and watch the flour come out into the bowl! (Just make sure that fingers don’t go near the hopper and the grinding stones.) I can’t wait until my grandson is old enough to hear the story of The Little Red Hen! “Who will grind the grain?” “We will!”
The MockMill is adjustable from fine to coarse, and it’s very easy to just turn the rounded end of the attachment to change the coarseness of the flour.
So Many Possibilities: Mill Your Own Flour!
I’m especially excited to have this mill in my kitchen because it has been designed to grind all 7 types of grain (wheat, rye, oats, barley, corn, brown rice, millet and subtypes such as spelt), kamut, quinoa, amaranth, triticale, and dry legumes. Dry spices can also be milled: pepper, coriander, cardamom, etc. It’s important to note that nuts, oily seeds such as sesame, poppy seeds, or coffee beans should NOT be ground in the MockMill.

Disclosure: I was given a MockMill to try in my home with the expectation that I would write a review on my blog and publicize the introductory offer to my readers. All opinions are my own.
