DH and I are looking at grinders -- specifically, grinders that can handle whole wheat berries but we will, of course, use this grinder for whatever else we can (coffee, for example). Looking for your experiences with and recommendations for grinders, as well as your ideas for what to do with ground substances. There is

DH is lobbying for the Country Living Grain Mill
and I am wondering if there's a comparable workhorse at a lower price. He argues that it looks indestructable and would be a hand-me-down to our children. I wonder whether we need that much grinder but have also started wondering about growing our own wheat.
A KitchenAid grinder attachment is not an option, alas.
If you love your grinder, why? And how often do you use it? How is its ease of use? Cleaning? Maintenance?
What do you do with the product you grind? (And yes, I have recently been to an LDS demo on using wheat berries, which is part of what has intensified our seriousness about grinders. They offered a dozen helpful recipes but I can always use more.) I dislike cooking but can make simple things. However, I LOVE to bake and would happily make whole wheat bagels, muffins, etc. I did see this thread
on healthy cereal from whole wheat.
Bonus question: DH favors oxygen absorbers but how do you handle storage and preservation issues?
