KA Food Grain Mill?

I'm looking to buy one.Amazon has 2.What is the difference between the 2 besides the price? Is 1 for the older KA's? I have the newer model.

Reading reviews for both maybe I should be looking for something else?

Thank you

Munky.

I can't find any mention of the GMA on the KA site, only the KGM. It is also lighter than the KGM.

Sorry, no help.

I noticed that the KGM has the KA logo on it. I would go for that one. Even though the GMA says it is for all KA mixers, I would be hesitant to use it. If it damages your KA, it could void any warrantee you may still have.

The KGM is 8 x 4.2 x 8.1

The GMA is 3 x 6 x 8

Amazon has not made it clear what each is made of. I would still go for the KGM that I can look up on the KA site for information and then buy it at the sale price on Amazon.
