Tot Voordeel en Genoegen (Profit and Pleasure) is a windmill built in 1798 on the Molendijk 15 in Alphen, Gelderland, in the Netherlands. It is a large post mill, built above a roundhouse, used for grinding wheat flour. It is the only windmill in the Netherlands that drives three pairs of millstones. The mechanism is mostly wooden, since iron was expensive when it was built. The windmill, which is still functional, can be rotated on its post to face the wind for maximum effect.
