While fresh-milled flour is NOT necessary to make amazing breads and baked goods, it sure is a nice bonus. I write all about how to use a grain mill right here. If you’ve been thinking about grinding your own flour, I can’t recommend this mill enough. I’ve been using it for years and love it.

It comes with an intense recipe book that would probably cover most of your cravings, but for the record this is my favorite.
This baby is a workhorse. I’m really picky with my kitchen gadgets and only keep the necessities; my pasta machine belongs in that category and has earned its place in my crowded cupboards. If you want to treat your family to fresh-made pasta often, this is a must-have.
