Nutrimill Grain Mill GIVEAWAY ($250 Value)

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist November 7, 2012

It’s hard to believe, but just the other day, the 1000th blog post for The Healthy Home Economist was published!

What better way to celebrate than to give away a sleek new Nutrimill Grain Mill to one lucky reader?

With the Holidays nearly upon us, a new grain mill on the kitchen counter would be such a lovely sight to behold not to mention how useful it would be with all the cookies, pies, cakes and other yummies that need to be baked in the coming weeks!

A great big thank you goes out to one of my newest sponsors, Pleasant Hill Grain, for generously providing this beautiful Nutrimill as a prize for this exciting pre-holiday giveaway!

The Wonders of Fresh Flour

Fresh flour from whole grains ground with the germ and bran intact are high in complex carbohydrates, B vitamins, iron, zinc, calcium and trace minerals.  The refined flours used in processed foods and available in bags at the supermarket are by and large completely devoid of this nutrition.   Refined flour is one of the three “displacing foods of modern commerce” nutritional pioneer Dr. Weston A. Price warned about in his writings and advised his patients not to consume.

As wonderful as whole grains are, however, once they are ground into flour, the nutrients very quickly oxidize according to Sara Shannon, nutritionist, researcher and author of Diet for the Atomic Age.

This means that even if you go to the trouble and expense of purchasing whole grain organic flour from the healthfood store, it is basically nutritionless!   Who knows when that flour was actually ground or how long it was sitting on the shelf before you bought it!

To reap the nutritional benefits of whole grains, you simply must grind fresh flour yourself.  I myself grind once or twice a month for simplicity and convenience and freeze what I won’t use immediately to lock in all the nutrients so they don’t oxidize away.   Fresh flour freezes beautifully and does not clump so, believe it or not, you can use it right out of the freezer whenever you need.

The Beautiful and Sleek Nutrimill

The Nutrimill is not only a beautiful looking piece of equipment; it is highly functional and practical as well.  Nutrimill grinds wheat, oat groats, rice, triticale, kamut, spelt, dry beans, lentils, dent (field corn), popcorn, dried sweet corn, split peas, buckwheat, barley, rye, millet, teff, quinoa, amaranth, sorghum, dried mung beans, chopped chestnuts.

The Nutrimill is not designed to grind herbs, spices, or oily seeds like flax.

The Nutrimill has a combination of features not available with any other mill such as the ability to grind super fine flour and also to adjust to a coarser flour grind for that perfect loaf of corn bread. You have full milling control with the Nutrimill.  It is the only mill that separately lets you adjust both motor speed and feed rate.

It is easy to see why the Nutrimill is the world’s most popular grain mill!

The large capacity of the Nutrimill allows you to grind up to 20 cups of flour at a time.  The temperature of the flour remains low as well (about 118F according to testing which for dry heat is slightly warm to the touch but not hot) so that nutrients are preserved.

Best of all, you won’t have to wear ear plugs when you use it like with some other mills!  The Nutrimill is the quietest impact mill on the market and is about the same decibel level as your vacuum cleaner.

How to Enter to Win

To enter the giveaway to win this beautiful Nutrimill, just use the Rafflecopter widget below.  Login with either Facebook or your email address and fill in the entries of your choice to enter.    The first entry is required and the other six are optional.

Rafflecopter is super easy to use and it logs all the entries for me automatically so that the winner can be quickly chosen and all entries accurately counted.

The giveaway runs from today through Friday, November 16, 2012 at midnight PST.  I will announce the winner no later than Monday, November 19, 2012.

Good luck everyone!

  1. Oohh! Very exciting giveaway. I have wanted a grain mill for years. Recently bought an inexpensive coffee grinder to grind grains… it works ok, but definitely not as well as a grain mill!

  2. I’m doing the GAPS diet right now to heal and seal my gut, but I would love a grinder waiting for me when I’m done! Properly prepared grains will be a fun treat in the future.

  6. I’d love the large capacity of this Nutrimill…up to 20 cups! I currently have and use a WonderMill that can only hold about 10. When I bake, I bake all day and use a lot of grain/flour. The larger capacity would be a good benefit.

    Also, I have a friend that has been borrowing my WonderMill. If I were to win this Nutrimill, she’d inherit my WonderMill. Thanks so much!

  11. I want a grainmill so bad but the prices have prohibited me from getting one. I keep my eye on Craigslist but not many people in NYC are selling grainmills! I would love to win one.

    Reply
    • I know this is an old post, but I stumbled upon it and I wanted to suggest that you try just googling the words “Craigslist” & “Nutrimill.” You might find some Craigslisters selling their Nutrimills from other parts of the country who are willing to ship. I’ve used this strategy to snag other hard-to-find items and it has worked like a charm. :)

  19. For all of the great reasons the description of the mill listed, and they’re all excellent, I’d like to grind my meal as I need it, to keep the most nutrients in the meal, for it to be as fresh as possible. This is an exciting giveaway … very exciting!

  21. What a great giveaway! My husband and I have been looking for a grain mill as our 10 month old son has Trisomy 21 and we know that it would be much better for us to make our sourdough with freshly ground grains. I’ve read great reviews of the Nutrimill Grain Mill and like that it uses lower temperatures so that the nutrients are retained. It’s also compact which is great for families who live in small apartments without storage space.

  36. I would love to win this grain mill because of my son’s physical challenges. He has many issues related to a genetic disorder, with one of them being digestive problems. Because of this, he can only eat flourless sprouted grain breads, such as Ezekiel bread.

    Unfortunately, a true flourless sprouted grain bread is very difficult to make at home without a grain mill, and commercial Ezekiel bread is over $7 a loaf in our locale! My son requires constant monitoring and care, so my employment options are very limited and thus, so are our finances. Winning a Nutrimill would help me provide my son with optimum nutrition, as well as take a considerable burden off of us financially.

  37. I have been researching grain mills and this one has been at the top of my list. It would be great to have a free one! ;)
    Question for you: my current grain mill (kitchen aid attachment) grinds the flour fine but leaves the bran in flakes. Should I be straining this out to reduce the phytate levels? I use it for sourdough items anyway, so much of it would be neutralized during the souring, but I wanted to get your thoughts on whether the bran would be better in or out. Thanks!

  45. My friend has one of these amazing mills and it works like a dream! My husband and I have been grinding our own grain for almost 6 months now but our mill leaves something to be desired.

I’ve officially cut out refined sugars (YAY!!) and I’m loving testing new recipes that include nut flours and such! I have an extremely picky daughter who doesn’t care for almond and coconut…. (oh the despair! :) I would love to have a grinder to be able to easily make SO many different flours for testing. My goal is to make nutritious and healthy snacks that my kids and hopefully my neighbors kids will love too!

    I’ve never had a grain mill and I would love to have one for my family’s health. My family eats a lot of bread ( my hubby being from Europe, they eat bread with every meal ) thus for me to have a mill would be ideal. Since my family is used to fine milled flour in a bag, they would definitely appreciate the mill’s ability to grind super fine flour, and I would appreciate the large capacity and how the temperature keeps and protects nutrients. Thanks for this opportunity, Sarah! God bless!

  66. Just visited the Pleasant Hill Grain site and the Nutrimill Grain Mill looks perfect for us. We don’t have much space here and this is small. It is also supposed to quieter! And you can make bean flour-NEAT! The most important thing, though, it looks like it doesn’t get too hot to destroy the nutrients in the wheat berries while you are milling.

We are trying to change over to the TF way of life and this would make my life so much easier, being the mama and all!! :)

  108. I would love to win this because…

    We were given a used grain mill by a friend a couple of years ago. It has been broken for quite some time and we cannot grind our flour anymore. :( We have all of this bulk grain, but can’t turn it into flour anymore, nor can we afford to keep buying flour for much longer OR a new grain mill. Eeek! So this would be most wonderful. :)

  112. Oh my! I’d so love to own the Nutrimill and grind my own grains. I’d love to grind and make my own Ezekiel bread, as well as other breads. And, most of all, since I’ve been reading you can grind beans to use as soup thickeners, and making things like black bean brownies…. To be able to sidestep the “preservatives” in commercially baked breads would be wonderful for my family!

  119. My word! almost 300 entries already.

    We’ve been grinding grain at home since our gluten sensitivity came to light, but since our mill is manual, and Dad does most of it, we end up with a few month’s worth each time. And electric version would be nice in terms of feeling like I could do a little at at time and not be hassling someone else for the extra help.

  128. I’ve not left a comment on your site before and I would like to first say that you do an amazing job with video-ing, writing and educating on the truth of food. The truth has gotten a bit lost under stacks of processed junk food, but it’s coming alive again and it’s work like yours that is resurrecting the truth of food and nutrition! Thank you from one who has been a steward of healthy eating for 30yrs.

    I would dearly love the Nutrimill because like many of your followers, I believe in artisan, hand-made, whole, nutrient-rich foods to nourish the body and the making of a good loaf of sourdough bread, freshly ground, is better than sex! Well, maybe as good as :)

  131. A ten-year battle with depression, GERD and h.pylori sent me searching the Web for help. Discovering your blog, I went on to read Nutrition and Physical Degeneration in one sitting, then headed to the cupboards and began tossing out what I thought had passed as “real food”. A trip to our local Whole Foods co-op got me started back down the Traditional path. There’s now Kefir and Kombucha fermenting in the kitchen, bone broth in the freezer and bottles of lacto-fermented vegetables on the countertop. My FCLO and high vitamin butter is in transit! My family thinks I’ve flipped, but I’m loving the way I feel and can’t wait until they get on board! The final big change is how to properly prepare legumes and grains. I’m reading Nourishing Traditions and know that I need to use freshly ground grain for the greatest health benefit.

    This Nutrimill Grain Mill would be a fantastic addition to my new “old-fashioned” way of life!

Growing up, I only saw already processed flours used in cooking, and took that as the norm. Well, hello new norm! We have been using a small coffee grinder to process grains for making pancakes and other baked goods. I want to get into making our own sourdough foods, and the Nutrimill Grain Mill would be just the ticket! Love that it is quieter than others and the fineness adjustment looks simple! The Pleasant Hill company has some cool water heating pots too.

The changes in his diet helped him lose the wieght gained while recuperating, and at the same time, made him healthier than when he was younger. I make all our own breads with almost-local grains and flours, but if I could easily grind the grains myself… Pure heaven. We bought a small hand mill that we could afford for now. At least the cranking is good for the upper arms. (grin)

  220. I want to tackle starting to make my own bread as the bread that I am currently buying is $5.99 a loaf and it is quickly becoming unaffordable for our family. A grain mill is on my wish list so I would love to win one! Congrats on your 1000th post! Thanks!

  221. Would love to have the Nutrimill to use instead of my KitchenAid attachment. It will do the job, but is a true pain to use and makes such a mess.

  222. I have been sprouting grains at home for awhile, but use a coffee grinder to make flour – it’s a bit tedious. :) I would love to own a grinder!!

  223. Winning a Grain Mill would be amazing! The quality of fresh ground flour and it’s amazing benefits during baking are awesome. I could make some seriously amazing quality artisan bread with my fresh ground flour.

  225. Wow, what a great giveaway! I have not yet been able to grind any of my own flour since I don’t have the right equipment and would love this machine. The 20 cup capacity is amazing! Thank you and good luck to everyone!

  226. I would love a Wondermill because I have recently discovered the how healthy and delicious it is to bake my own bread with my own freshly sprouted and ground wheat berries. I was using my KitchenAid mixer with the mill attachment and it actually blew it out!

    Reply
  227. This would be such a valuable addition to my kitchen. After finding your blog, I have implemented lots of your recommendations – one of which is grinding my own flour. I just started doing this using my Vitamix blender, but I am not impressed with the final product. I especially love your cold cereal recipe and mine would be much healthier and easier to make with the Nutrimill :-) Oh, and 20 cups at once and lifetime warranty – WOW!

  237. I’m going to assume the comment should be posted here instead of on the website since there doesn’t seem to be anywhere to post on the given link and everyone else has been doing it here.
    I would love to have the grinder for a number of reasons. My husband tried to buy me one for Christmas last year because he knew I wanted one. He bought a cheap $30 dollar one that didn’t work. After a few times of trying it, the metal was ground down and it would no longer grab to turn the knob. It also ended up with pieces of metal in the flour and it couldn’t even crack corn! Plus, it messed up my counter. lol. So, it wasn’t a good experience all around. I felt bad having to tell my husband not to get me one unless he finds out which one from me first. :( I have been wanting one for years! And my birthday is this month!!!!!!! So, it would be perfect! :)

  249. I try very hard to ensure all the food my family eats is nutritious. But flour is the one thing that lets me down, because all it’s nutrition has been stripped away. Having a grain mill would ensure the nutrients available in the actual wheat (and other grains) are still present in the flour, and would mean our overall nutrient content in our food would increase substantially!

  268. Hi Sarah,
    After struggling with the side effects of Rheumatoid Arthritis DMARDs, I decided to make a life change with my foods. So far, I have taken out processed foods, most sugar and all soft drinks. Replacing with anti-inflammatory and real foods has dramatically improved my joint health. Your website, emails and videos have been so helpful to my challenges. Learning and experimenting with foods and health has become a hobby, not just a necessity to reduce pain. I would love to incorporate a Nutrimill Grain Mill in my journey!
    I wish good health to you and your family!

Grinding my own flour is another way to put love into everything I do for my family.

  292. The Nutrimill grain mill has been on my wish list for years now. I haven’t been able to rationalize purchasing it yet because I was gifted a Vitamix with a grain grinding container. It gets the job done, but the flour is always HOT, not consistently ground, and LOUD. I am still grateful for it though, but it sure would be nice to have consistent results and be able to grind flour if someone happens to be sleeping. Thank you so much for this giveaway.

  293. I love how quiet the Nutrimill is, and that you can stop grinding and come back and turn it on, and it won’t get clogged. Sooo helpful with small children around. I like also, how it has it’s own canister to grind in, so it contains the mess and you don’t have to have a bowl ready to use every time. Our family of 7 shares a Nutrimill with my sisters family of 8. We cart it back and forth every time we need to use it, and it would be really nice to have our own with our growing family.
