The Ankarsrum Flaker Mill is ideal for making fresh oatmeal from oat groats (groats are oats that have had the hulls removed). Homemade oatmeal made with this process has thicker, chewier flakes than the store-purchased sort and, being fresh, is much more delicious. Harder grains (most wheat, for example) tend to shatter in the roller, which is useful for some purposes. Store-bought breakfast simply can't compare to cereal ground at home from fresh whole grains. The Ankarsrum Flaker Mill is a great way to expand your accessories and help you get the most out of your Ankarsrum mixer.
