Fresh, naturally sweet rolled oats or stale, chemically-preserved flakes: Which sound better for your
breakfast? If you like the fresh idea, KoMo's personal-sized FlicFloc
grain flaker is right up your alley. Its hand operated design brings an
ingenious engineering approach to grain flaking. Rather than using traditional cylindrical rollers, the Austrian-made
FlicFloc has exposed, stainless steel conical rollers that rotate on
ball bearings in a cabinet of laminated beechwood. The crank turns
extremely easily, and the mill makes a hearty flake from oat groats
(oats with the hulls removed) that's thicker and chewier than
store-bought flaked oats.
Whether baked, cooked or raw, food tastes so much better when it's
fresh—and oats are no exception. A variety of other grains can be flaked too with the FLICFLOC, including
wheat, rye, barley and millet, with a little preparation. These grains
are normally dry and hard. To soften them, hold them under running water
briefly in a strainer. Then spread the grains on a cloth or towel to
let them dry over night or for at least 3-4 hours. This time will vary
depending on the grain used, but a little experimentation will help
optimize the process. The softened grain will flatten nicely into
flakes, similar to commercially available rolled oats. At the same time
this contact with water starts an enzymatic process which makes it
easier for your metabolism to assimilate the minerals in the grain.
The FLICFLOC is a practical and compact option - standing at just 7.4 inches tall, it won‘t take up much space in your cupboard. But while its dimensions are trim, its construction is
exceptionally robust. The hopper capacity is 4.2 oz, and the glass
receptacle is included. A supplied clamp secures the the FlicFloc to your table or counter
(up to 2-3/16" thick). Then just fill the hopper you're ready to start
