The KoMo XL grain mill might be thought of as a supersized version of
the very popular KoMo Classic mill. It combines the Classic's
attractive construction of solid native beechwood and fingerjointed
corners with an even more powerful motor. Cabinet size is also a little
larger. Power & capacity: Handmade in Austria, all KoMo mills are
equipped with specially developed electric motors that provide reliable
and efficient, yet extremely quiet power.
The grinding burrs of the XL
are designed for particularly aggressive grain feeding and with its high
strength 600 watt motor, this mill produces 7 ounces per minute for
bread flour texture. The large solid beechwood hopper holds 2 lb., 10 oz. of grain. The
texture of the grind is continuously adjustable from fine flour to
coarse meal and cracked grain, simply by turning the hopper bowl to
align its index mark with the graphic scale on the front of the mill.
All dry grains can be ground with the KoMo Fidibus XL 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 XL 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.
Optional interchangeable inserts: If you prepare food for someone with a
food allergy, see KoMo's optional interchangeable insert system. This
ingenious solution lets you grind different types of grain in the same
mill while keeping food types completely separate.
