I just received my new Mockmill Professional 100 and I love it! I had been using my old Whispermill but felt that I needed an upgrade for making artisan bread. I just milled some wheat and the flour is amazing. I used to see the large bran particles in the flour with my old mill but this is so much finer. The Mockmill Professional 100 is also quieter than my old mill.
If you are contemplating about buying this Mockmill Pro 100 mill vs the regular Mockmill 100, these are my opinions:
The Mockmill 100 requires set up so there is some work needed. In other words, it does not leave the factory ready for home use but needs setting up. First, you must first screw off the knob which is the lever that adjusts the course setting, then take off the hopper by pushing the tabs in, twist off the cap, remove the transport locks if applicable, twist the cap back on, and adjust the placement of the milling stone and lever. Then do the reverse by putting the hopper back on, and screwing the lever into the hopper. The lever is moved back and forth and tightened until you reach your desired settings for fine or course. If you want need a more finer or courser product, it requires removing the knob and turning the hopper. Then when you have reached your desired setting, screw the knob back on. This is difficult to follow as written instructions so there is a video showing how to do it.
I had purchased the Mockmill 100 but had a problem with it requiring me to send it back. I decided that I would not describe the problem here but would say that the mill did not leave the factory ready for home use. Because of this issue, it led to another problem. All of this was a minor and fixable but it did require sending it back to Breadtopia. Breadtopia has greatest customer service!*
After all that had happened, it did change my opinion on what model that would best serve me. I did not like the feature that requires a set up probably very easy for everyone else, but more challenging with the issue I had. I also did not like how to adjust the coarseness settingwith the Mockmill 100.
So I upgraded to the Mockmill Professional 100. It is the best! No set up required!! Just turn the mill on, pour in your grain and catch it with a bowl. To make adjustments to the fine and coarse setting, just turning the hopper until you here the stones touching. No more screwing and unscrewing the knob… No video to watch. So easy. Very Simple.*
The price difference between the Mockmill Pro 100 vs the Mockmill 100 is almost $200. Yes, the Mockmill Pro 100 is pricey but I just love the features. You can’t go wrong with the Mockmill 100. It just requires a little more work to get it going but it didn’t work out for me but that doesn’t mean it will be the same for you! In my case, it made sense to go with the Pro 100. By the way, the speed is just fine. The 100 is just fine for my needs. I hope this helps for those deciding on which mockmill. Good luck to your many choices for mills! Happy Baking!*
