Not for grinding wheat berries

Summary: In April of 2011 I purchased my second machine. It is now September 2015 and the gears are shot. I bake whole wheat bread weekly and have enjoyed grinding wheat berries. I purchased the attachment but the gears have gone bad twice now. I would not recommend this machine for anything but light work.
Summary: My first Kitchen Aid mixer was purchased in 1973. It continues life now in the kitchen of my grand daughter, an amazing cook. Of course I'd not be able to work with any other type of mixer, after all the years of enjoying the versatility of the Kitchen Aid. Love my new one!
Excerpt: After almost 40 years of cooking, and only owning a hand mixer, I decided to invest in a stand mixer. I did my due diligence in comparing brands and features. Since I am not a professional cook, I felt confident that the Kitchen Aid Artisan was the right model to purchase and I am very pleased.
Pros: Capacity, Even Mixing, Heavy Duty, Works Quietly
Summary: This KitchenAid mixer is probably my most-loved kitchen appliance. I do a great deal of baking, and this mixer really gets the job done. So far I've used it to make bread, tortillas, cookies, pizza crust, whipped cream, cake, and even pesto with the grinder attachment. The possibilities are endless!

Summary: This is an older model that is no longer produced. That being said, it has 300 watts max power and is available in multiple colors (I got the red). The artisan series mixers are more expensive and only offer the choice of colors and a meager 25 watts of additional power.
