The GrainMakerCottage Craft Works carries several grain mills, but the GrainMaker by far is the most popular American made home mill for the serious back-to-basics self-sufficient lifestyle.

The GrainMaker is also made of metal and not plastic, so it will endure a lot of use over the years. It also will grind down to powdery baking flour with just grind. Other mills require several grinds to reach this level of flour.

The GrainMaker is more than just grain mill, back to basic people love having a multipurpose device that provides several functions. With the GrainMaker you can also grind flax seed, make peanut and even crack corn for the animals.

Mixing with a hand crank mixer.

Hand crank mixers make baking easy and fun without electricity

The Little Dutch Maid Hand Crank MixerWhen you think hand crank you might remember the hand crank egg beater that grandma used in her kitchen and think that would be a lot of work.

The fact is the Amish make and use heavy duty hand crank mixers for large batch cooking.
The Little Dutch Maid mixer was made commercial grade to cook large batches of breads and mash potatoes for Amish weddings and other gatherings.

The Little Dutch Maid uses the open top Bosh mixing bowel and accessories for making dough, cookies, or whisking. It also accepts a food and vegetable shredder and chopper that takes the place of an electric food processor. It features two speed crank positions for slow or high speeds.

The Little Dutch Maid Mixer has crossed over to be popular with non-Amish people who either also live off grid or are wanting to be prepared in case the power goes out for extended periods. Cook off contestants are also using The Little Dutch Maid for competitions such as Dutch Oven cook offs that prohibit electric powered appliances.

The Little Dutch Maid is heavy built, but still easy and quick to use and clean. Some would rather pull it out and use instead of lugging over their electric mixer.

Another addition to the Amish line of hand crank mixers is a conversion Kitchen Aide stand mixer. The electric components have been removed and replaced with a hand crank assembly.

You can purchase both of these hand crank mixers at Cottage Craft Works .com an online back-to-basics self sufficient general store.
