Why is it so expensive?

When you consider analytical laboratories have been paying upwards of AU$14,000 - AU$20,000 to use the technology inside a WhisperMill, you'd have to say home millers get to use the WhisperMill Microburst technology for a song in comparison. Anyway you look at it, the WhisperMill is a bargain. A good food processor is over AU$1,000. Old Stone Mills such as the popular Retsel range are around AU$1095 for their top of the line model, which is very slow and cumbersome in comparison to a GrainMaster WhisperMill (around 9 minutes for 4 cups of flour compared to under a minute!). At its list price of only AU$695, a WhisperMill works out to a little under AU$2 a day for a year. And once you own one, it can save you that much every day the rest of your life as it allows you to buy your ingredients in bulk. You can make a loaf of bread for a little as AU40c instead of paying AU$2.70 in a supermarket. The savings are incredible. We challenge you. Think about a $2 coin every day for a just over a year. Can you think of anything that will do more for your health and well-being the rest of your life than this?

Why is it so cheap?

Even though a WhisperMill requires a smaller investment than it's nearest equivalent electric stone mill, don't think a cheap price means cheap quality. The Whisper Mill comes with a lifetime warranty for domestic use against faulty materials or workmanship. The modern construction techniques and use of high quality moulded ABS plastic means that the Whisper Mill can be mass produced at far more economical levels than the old stone mills which people are used to paying higher figures for. The Whiper Mill's popularity in the USA has also enabled the price to be more affordable than otherwise would be available.

How can it save me money?

The savings are incredible. A farmer gets as little as 13c a kilo for his wheat, yet you can pay anywhere as much as $1-4 a kilo to get that wheat back as flour or bread mix.

You can make a loaf of bread for a little as AU40c a loaf instead of paying AU$2.70 in a supermarket.

Make your won Soy Milk for under a $1 a litre instead of paying $3 or more in a store.

A pack of Nutrigrain is worth around $8 a kilo. With your WhisperMill, you can mill the equivalent amount of Corn, Oats and Wheat for around $1 a kilo, plus get all the nutrition nature intended you to get from her grains naturally.

How do I clean the WhisperMill?

Simply run the WhisperMill for a brief period with no grain in it after each milling session. Centrifugal force sends any remaining particles out of the milling chamber. If you are switching from using wheat and need to mill another variety for someone who may be wheat intolerant, simply run white rice through the WhisperMill before running the next grain such as corn or soy.

The storage cannister is easily washed by hand or in a dishwasher. Simply seperate the different elements and wash.

Why does the nutrition fade in freshly milled flour?

Like any fresh food, once the ingredients in a grain of wheat have been milled and exposed to the air, oxidisation occurs, the nutriional value fades, and the natural oils have a limited shelf life. For 72 hours after turning wheat into flour, you can enjoy all the nutrition, taste and aroma nature intended you to get, but after that the oil goes off and the flour shoudn't be used.

This is why commercial flour mills have to remove the wheat germ and the natural oils contained therein. The flour they sell to you has to sit in their mill for months before bagging and months again before it goes through the distribution chain and gets used in your food. They can't sell you flour that goes off, and so they have removed 28 of the 30 known minerals vitamins and trace elements. Aside from the Vitamins B and E inside the removed wheat germ, much of the nutrtition and fibre that could be left is in the bran. But this is also removed and sold as animal fodder because animals need protein, vitmains and minerals. They don't seem to complain about fibre or the colour of their food either! Shareholders don't complain about the extra profits either.

How long is my warranty?

Used according to the instructions, you have a lifetime against faulty materials or workmanship. That's the purchasers lifetime. Please note this warranty applies for domestic use only.

Can I use whole grain flour the same way I use white flour?

In many recipes it is a simple substitution. You can even substitute barley for wheat flour in many instances for a different taste experience. Given however that whole grain flour has a richer more fulsome flavour and texture, you will notice a difference in recipes calling for a white nutritionless strachy plain flour. We have recipe books available designed especially for whole grain flour that will give you suggestions for cakes, bread, muffins, casseroles, soups, sauces, savories, pasta, and even desserts all built around celebrating the whole grain flavour, fibre and nutrition.

What will my home made bread turn out like?

Whole grain flour will add fantastic flavour and texture to your home made bread.
