    Previous to owning my grain mill I used rice flour on occasion.

  2. We use a GF flour mix. I’d love to be able to grind my own!!

  3. FoodPrepper says:

    I have used several non-wheat flours. I have used oat flour quite a bit but I have also played with millet flour, white bean flour, pearled barley flour, brown rice flour, and garbanzo bean flour (all of which I have ground in my WonderMill). I have some rye berries that I have been meaning to mill for the past 8 months that I would like to use in some bread but I haven’t done it yet.

  4. Shelley says:

    I have used quinoa, corn, black bean, wheat, rice, and barley flours. They all ground WonderMill-fully!

  5. Gina B. says:

    I have not yet used a non-wheat flour…but I bet having a Wonder Mill would change that!

  6. Elizabeth says:

    I have a friend who is wheat free and I’ve made many things for her using several different non-wheat flours including: buckwheat, white and brown rice flour, teff flour, montina flour, Garbanzo bean flour, almond flour, coconut flour, fava bean flour.

  7. Susan C. says:

    I have used quinoa flour, oat flour, brown rice flour, and buckwheat flour. I don’t have a grain mill :( so I have to buy mine already milled. I would SO LOVE to win this! Thanks for the opportunity!

  24. Lauren V. says:

    I made brown rice flour pancakes once with a friend who was avoiding gluten. They were good, but the texture was different :)

    We use rice flower, quinoa flour and oat flour. Our family LOVES to bake and cook! We try to push the boundaries and make delicious things using unique ingredients! The boys love to help out and LOVE the yummy treats. If we won the mill, they’d be able to help make the flours in the treats that they love so much! :)

  26. Crystal says:

    I just used a non-wheat flour for the first time yesterday. I used brown rice flour.

I don’t currently own a grain mill, and I am starting to research them since I use non-wheat flours all the time to improve the nutritional value of my baked goods and keep them gluten free so that more people can eat what I bring to pot luck meals at church and school.

    I’ve used coconut, soy, corn, buckwheat and rice flours. I need to learn how to use coconut flour a little better. My results weren’t too good.

  118. Trish M says:

    I’ve used buckwheat, amaranth, barley, oat and rice flour!

  119. Darlene R says:

  125. Jan says:

    Because of Celiac Disease, I can use only non-wheat flours. I grind most of the flours I use by hand with a hand crank flour mill that I have to run the flour through many times to get the right consistency. It would be fantastic to own a WonderMill.

    I really, really, really need one of these!! I have never used anything but regular white flour from the store and I want to start using non-GMO products.

    this would be a wonderful thing to own i bake bread every day and to be able to mill my own flour would just make my already wonderful bread that much more so.

  131. Kimberly says:

    I have used teff, oats, millet and buckwheat flours…it is fun to experiment with new flour.

  132. Mandy says:

    I have made sourdough buckwheat pancakes using my 20 year old vita mix to grind the buckwheat. Would love to win a wondermill and start using the whole wheat I have in the pantry for bread. My vita mix does not grind the whole wheat fine enough any more.

  133. Linda Jo says:

    I’ve tried buckwheat, oats, corn and some bean flours. It is fun to experiment! And it’s better if you can grind the flour yourself instead of having to buy it!

  134. ruth says:

    I have tried spelt flour before and enjoyed it immensely!
    I would love to have a grain mill to help continue my whole food journey with.

  135. Phyllis Robinson says:

    Being gluten free, I have tried almost all of the gluten free flours out there!
    I need the WonderMill to grind my own rice flours to save lots of money.

Tam <

  139. Barbie says:

    I haven’t used one of my own but have borrowed a friends and used it a couple times.. Have tons of recipes I would love to try with it..

  140. LindaW says:

    I have not used non-wheat flour, but I would like to start experimenting and reduce the amount of wheat the family is eating.

  141. john hutchens says:

    I have never used a non wheat flour but would like to

  142. Brenda Duncan says:

    Just a few, like soy, oat, and rice. But I would love to get into it more. Thanks for such a great giveaway. Someone is sure to get a lot of good use from this one.

  143. Lisa P says:

    I have only used corn flour, but have been thinking about going gluten free to see if it helps with digestive issues I am having, so I plan to try others! Thanks for the giveaway!

  144. Patricia R says:

    I would love to win this and give it a try. I would love to grind my own to save money and so I know what’s in there. Thank you for giving me the chance to win one of these and for all your recipes… love them.. :)

  145. sharon says:

    I have used the following non-gluten flours: (1) Amaranth, (2) Brown rice, (3) Buckwheat, (4) Coconut, (5) Corn, (6) Garbanzo, (7) Oat, (8) Millet, (9) Pea, (10) Quinoa, (11) Sorgum, (12) Sweet Rice, (13) Tapioca, (14) Teff AND I have ignored most of the bean flours because they give me gas problems… I am gluten intolerant with one allele for Celiac Disorder and unless bakery, pancakes, and pasta products are gluten free, I become one sick human being :o( I haven’t purchased a grain mill because I didn’t think they would do a good job making a smooth flour…maybe your mill is capable of making a fine textured flour that isn’t gritty—I so I am your perfect candidate to tell the world “This really is a great little machine!”

  146. Swetha says:

    No, I have not…but I would love to have one to try.

  147. Brenda Duncan says:

    I have used rice, soy, and oat flour before. Would love to try some others.

    I bake all of my family’s bread and it would be wonderful to grind the wheat fresh!

  149. Since I was diagnosed with celiac disease, I have used many different flours! (bean, rice, oat, quinoa, tapioca, etc.) I even post flour mixes on my blog, Adventures of a Gluten Free Kid. Check it out!:

  150. Kathy says:

    I don’t yet own a wonder mill but have used oat, soy, rye & corn meal in the past. I’d love to experiment with bean flours & other grain flours. I’m sure grinding my own corn meal would be tremendously better than buying already ground meal.

  151. Would love to try the “junior” for my almonds to see if it’s simpler than using my vitamix (always having to dig almond BUTTER out of the blades!!)

  152. Lisa Stancle says:

    Yes, organic gluten-free flours and almond meal. But making my own would be awesome! I love cooking from scratch and desire to do some hearth cooking as well.

  153. Sabrina says:

    I use rice flour to batter chicken to fry. Yum!

  154. Pris says:

    Bought hard red wheat, but haven’t used it yet. Would love to win so I could start grinding my own flours. Living in a small town, it’s so hard to find any different flours. Would love to make my own. Thanks for the chance.
