Housed within the Classic's handsome exterior is an exceptionally
advanced, yet beautifully simple, milling mechanism. Precisely fitted
corundum-ceramic burrs grind to any texture you choose, from exceedingly
fine flour to coarse meal or cracked grain. All by simply rotating the
grain mill's hopper to align with your choice on the front texture
setting scale. The Classic—a graceful union of natural elegance and
perfect function—is KoMo's best selling mill.
Power & capacity: All KoMo electric grain mills are equipped with
specially developed motors that provide reliable and efficient power.
The Classic, with its 360 watt motor, produces approx. 3.5 ounces of flour per
minute for bread flour texture. Its large solid wood hopper holds 2 lb.,
1 oz. of grain.
All dry grains can be ground with the KoMo Fidibus Classic mill, including soft
or hard wheat, oat groats (dehulled oats), rice, triticale, kamut,
spelt, buckwheat, barley, rye, millet, teff, quinoa, amaranth, sorghum,
soybeans and dent (field) corn. It will also grind lentils, dry beans
(pinto, red, garbanzo/chickpeas, kidney & more), and dried, non-oily
spices. It isn't suitable for herbs, oilseeds like flax or sesame,
popcorn, or fibrous materials.
Dent (field) corn and soybeans can be ground to any texture from
cracked to meal to very fine flour. For these very large-kerneled
grains, grind first with the stones opened widely to produce cracked
grain, then a second time if you want flour. If you want to grind oat groats open the stones
about five clicks (or so) wider than you would for a hard grain like
wheat, otherwise the soft oat flour will fill the stones' furrows and
in-feeding will stop. Opening the stones further will give you a cereal
grind for porridge, or coarser yet for cracked oats, similar to
Easy to live with: As with all KoMo grinders, cleanup of the Fidibus Classic is
minimal and easy, and full access to the milling stones takes just
seconds, without tools. A sealed lid keeps everything clean between
uses. Sound level is a big issue with many grinders; being among the
world's quietest-running grain mills, KoMo's products are kind to your
ears and your nerves.
A lifetime mill: The excellence of engineering and construction that
goes into every KoMo electric grain mill means that your mill can be
expected to last a lifetime in normal use. Only the finest materials are
used to make KoMo mills, and the European beechwood used in crafting
their beautiful cabinetry is sustainably harvested.
