Key disadvantages: Grinds 450g/1lb wheat kernels in 30 minutes; the grain temperature increased by 8°C/15°F; particle size is uneven (though you can mill finer grain by adjusting the know past the lowest setting); milled grain twice, sifted through 210 micron screen, and obtained only 40% yield.

As Chris said.  However one should note the comments pertained to the mixer attachment version of the Mockmill, not the stand alone versions of the Mockmill.

Curious if anyone's thoughts have changed on the matter since the last update on this thread. I've been thinking about sourcing a traditional Indian Ghantti but the ease of the NutriMill or KoMo has me intrigued.

Rob, did you end up getting a Ghantti? Or another mill? I didn't really expect to be in the market for a grain mill, but some of the possibilities are pretty intriguing.

I ended up with the NutriMill. I'm using it less than expected because it turns out we're buying 100% local grains, and that means the farmers are grinding for us to our specs - in other words, we're doing way too much for the NutriMill.

can these things grind anything unctuous like vanilla beans?

I do not believe so.

 

I have ground vanilla beans, chopped, in a poppyseed grinder - the hand-cranked type that look like a minature meat grinder.

 

A wet grinder, with the stone wheels - will grind them into a fine paste.  Like the Ultra Pride grinder

But that's a different animal.
