Grain Mill Wagon Challenge Experience:

I was really excited about joining this challenge. Firstly, I’d had motor problems with my previous two mills and wondered if the WonderMill would prove to run smoother, quieter, and become a favorite household appliance. It passed with flying colors! I love how easy it is to put together and use. I also liked that it wasn't as tall as my previous grain mills. Finding a place to store it when not in use was quick and easy. I also noted that it was indeed quieter. With five kids at home, any machine that doesn't add to the noise level is much appreciated!

Secondly, I found that this challenge encouraged me to experiment with several of the sourdough recipes I’d been wanting to convert to a 100% starter. Some of them I’d remake over again to tweak just a bit, much to the delight of the family. The One Ingredient Sourdough Pizza Crust and Sourdough Chocolate Fudge Cake were favorites!

Thanks so much to the folks at Grain Mill Wagon for this opportunity!
