I have been making my own bread for about 2 years. I bought this to up the level on the bread I make. As with anything, It will definitely be a learning experience to get the recipe like I like it.
I was really excited to find the Mockmill 100 in stock at Firewalker Ovens, since nobody can keep these in stock for long. Happily, my mill was shipped promptly and arrived perfect condition (very sturdily packed.) It was super simple to set up and I made sourdough bread the next day from freshly ground hard red wheat! The texture and temperature of the stone ground flour was great—fine and fluffy like the local brand of artisan flour I’ve been using. Said to be quieter than most, this mill is still loud enough to make me appreciate when it’s finished. But it’s also pretty speedy—for the 500 g I used, it took just under 5 minutes (which makes sense because I think it gets the “100” name in its name by grinding 100g per minute). 😊 This is my first mill, and I did a lot of research before choosing this one. So far, I’m very satisfied!
Will need more practice in breadmaking, but the flour was great. Had another electric mill but it got so hot it cooked the wheat!
The ability to mill all types of grains is a gift of food security and nutrition. I enjoy experimenting with gluten free recipes that use a combination of several grains resulting in a light texture.
This is perfect for weekend cooking for friends and their families. So excited to be able to make bread and steamed Chinese goodies out of fresh milled flours! Thank you for all the detailed tutorials, as well!
