Versatile Multi-Grain milling: The grind is infinitely adjustable, from fine for bread flour, to medium for "Cream Of Wheat" style cereals, or coarse for steel cut or cracked grain (if you want to, you can adjust it to such a coarse setting that grains aren't even cracked). The milling head grinds wheat, oats, corn, soybeans, rye, barley, rice, spelt, flax, buckwheat, millet, coffee, kamut, quinoa, and sesame (doesn't grind popcorn). It will also mill some chopped, dry, non-oily herbs and spices. The Family Grain Mill grinds cool to preserve nutrients. Large 5 cup hopper capacity.
“If your shipping was any faster the box would have caught on fire.”

The FGM attachments for Kitchen Aid mixers are German-manufactured and are far superior to attachments made by KA. Note: This direct-fit KA attachment fits only the Kitchen Aid. It will not fit the standalone motor drive or hand drive base.
Kitchen Aid states that, starting with a cool mixer, accessories may process a maximum of 10 cups of ingredients, then the mixer must be allowed to cool a full 45 minutes before further use. Kitchen Aid mixers must be operated on speed setting #10 and must be rated 325 watts or higher to use such attachments. (Note: If you're in the market for a mixer that will do larger batches of heavier dough, as well as accept FGM milling attachments without such restrictive limits on batch size and running time, see the workhorse Bosch Universal mixer that will "do it all" in your kitchen.)
Whole Grain Nutrition: Harvest the Benefits!
Imagine that for years, your children ate mainly candy. Imagine that you did, too. Imagine an entire nation on a candy diet. Imagine the health consequences.
Natural whole grains contain a myriad of health-essential nutrients, from proteins to vitamins and amino acids. But "white flour" consists only of the starchy endosperm of the wheat kernel. In its natural form the endosperm provides wholesome energy, but it's the least nutrient-rich part of the grain. Removed are the nutrient-packed bran, wheat germ, and wheat germ oil. Then to make it extra white, industrial processors go further, chemically bleaching it, and returning just enough of a few vitamins to stave off beriberi and rickets. They're allowed to call the end product "Enriched Flour" but a truthful label would read "Impoverished Flour." This snow white, denutritionalized substance is a commodity worth billions of dollars annually to its merchandisers because of a commercially useful characteristic: Unlimited shelf life. No matter how long it sits in the mass distribution channel, it can't go bad precisely because there's actually nothing left in it that can go bad. Nutritionally, it's bad when bagged. A few companies have grown enormously rich marketing this pseudo-food on the basis of convenience, ease, and its dazzling white appearance. But a blind eye was turned to the consequences of replacing real whole grain flour with something that looks special, yet is virtually devoid of nutrition. In essence, candy. So widely has this nutritional travesty become accepted that we call it—and think of it as—wheat flour. But to depart further from natural grain flour would scarcely be possible. Then to make matters worse, artificial sweeteners, flavors and colors, appetite stimulants and preservatives are added to many of our foods. "Artificial" tells you those things aren't naturally food. But have you ever wondered what they actually are, then? Did you know some of them are actually petroleum derivatives? What unintended side effects might those complex counterfeit compounds have on us?
The human body is an absolute marvel; scientists have a long way to go to understand a tenth of how we work. But as capable and as resilient as our bodies are, common sense and history teach that we need wholesome, nutritious food to remain healthy and strong. The denatured byproducts being mass marketed today don't provide what we need, because they've been profoundly altered by processes in which real nutrition is considered last, or not at all.
There's a great solution to this problem. By grinding grains in your kitchen and using the whole grain flour while it's fresh, you get the nutrition needed for strength and health. You also get far tastier food, with genuine character—incomparably more satisfying than today's mass marketed pretenders. After transitioning to whole grains, putting out a plate of white styro-bread will elicit comments like "Why are you giving us this... and where's the good stuff?". Even flour labeled as "whole grain" in stores falls far short of what you can easily grind yourself, because unless it's ground while you wait, the essential Vitamin E in true whole grain flour would go rancid in days (meaning that it's probably been removed), and all nutrients begin steadily oxidizing-away from exposure to oxygen as soon as grain is millled. What's in those bags is not whole grain flour if it's been sitting on a shelf for even a few days; that's literally impossible.
Making real food is more than doable, it's downright fun with help from Pleasant Hill Grain! A like the KoMo Classic is the place to start. And to make whole grain bread quickly, easily and with consistently wonderful results, nothing beats a quality that's capable of mixing and kneading bread that's ready to pop in the oven — quickly and without hand kneading. These machines make it easy to turn the corner to a far better and more enjoyable way of eating!

By Bronwyn W. in NC on 2/16/2019 - Verified BuyerI really appreciate this attachment for my stand mixer. It's my first grain mill and it ground millet and oat groats beautifully into fine flour. It grinds from coarse to fine.3 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Marke L. in MO on 11/23/2018 - Verified BuyerIt is better than the Kitchen Aid grinder. I use it on the Pro 600 watt model and overheating is not a problem. It's been easy to set up and easy to clean.3 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?

By Evelyn E. in OH on 4/26/2016 - Verified BuyerI have made bread of and on for years and have always wanted to grind my own flour. This makes it possible. It is so easy to use and it makes the healthiest bread. It is cheaper than having a separate grinder. Grind your grain while getting everything ready and it is done quickly. I love my Kitchen Aid appliances.2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?

By Amy M. in NC on 9/21/2018 - Verified BuyerSo pleased with this purchase! I love how it fits right on my KitchenAid mixer as an attachment, saving me the expense and storage space of buying another motor. Grinds my wheat without heating my flour and losing nutrients because of heat. My bread turns out great every time and I can eat it without guilt bc I know how healthy all the ingredients are. Thanks Pleasant Hill! You are my one stop shop for my kitchen needs.2 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?
