KoMo Flour Sifter
The flour sifter attaches to any KoMo electric grinder except the commercial Jumbo grinder. Starting with whole grain flour, the sifter will allow you to separate out the coarser bran, giving you very fine flour that's ideal for making pastries, cakes, and cookies. The bran can then be used in a variety of other products including baked goods, smoothies, soups, granola, etc.
After first grinding flour from grain, just unscrew the mill's grain hopper, lift out the upper stone, and screw the sifter assembly on where the hopper was. With your just-milled flour in the sifter chamber, flip the mill switch on, and rotating brushes quickly work the finest flour through the screen at bottom, and out through the mill spout, so the bran remains above.
A strong tornado-like vortex is formed in the flour during operation, which quickly circulates all the flour through the chamber.
Three interchangeable screens are included, with mesh sizes of 1.25 (15 mesh), .80 (19 mesh) and .63mm (24 mesh), for medium, fine and extra fine sifting. Capacity is 14 ounces.
Product tips: After you've filled the Plexiglas tube with flour, don't lift on the tube itself, because that could cause a flour spill. Instead, lift by grasping the sifter's wood base. Also, when inserting the Plexiglas tube into the wood base, be sure the two spring-loaded balls in the base snap into the two sockets near one edge of the tube; this will keep the tube securely in place during sifting.
Grain mill not included.

I use a large funnel to get the flour into the tube. This makes quick work of sifting whole grain flour.3 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?
Easy assembly and simple to use. Makes quick sifted flour.3 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?
I needed a special adapter to work with the accessory interchangeable silicone insert I purchased for my KoMo mill. The issue was quickly analyzed and resolved with the correct adapter by the PHG staff. No more tiresome sifting by hand to get rid of gas deflating sharp bran. Lofty loaves.3 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?
Very good sifter, read the user guide supplied with it to set it up correctly.2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?
The stone grinder sifter combo works well. Easy to use and clean. The bread has more flavor and a much better texture. It also makes the bread not as crumbly.2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?
This is an expensive accessory to the excellent grain mills produced by this company that does not live up to their quality and engineering standards. The sleeve does not lock into the base, and unless you hold it down in place, it gets blown off by the pressure caused by the sifting process. The result is a flour explosion that will cover most of the interior of your kitchen. I do not recommend this product.Moderator:
Thanks for your review, Dean. We're sorry about the mess you had there. We also lost some flour when we lifted on the tube once. Never did that again! The tube does actually have spring-loaded retention balls that need to be snapped into the two sockets that are at one edge of the Plexiglas tube. As long as the tube is assembled with those balls snapped-in, the tube will be held in place properly during sifting.5 out of 6 people found this review helpful. Did you?
I've wanted this sifter to go with my KoMo grain mill for some time now. It is kind of messy to use but that's no big deal. I'm happy I made the purchase. Pleasant Hill Grain is a good company to deal with. I would order from them again.Moderator:
Kathy, when you refer to some messiness, our guess is that the issue might be getting flour into the top of the sifter. Maybe someday we'll have an accessory funnel for this, but for now we've found that an inexpensive canning funnel does make it easier to make the transition from a bowl of flour to the top of the sifter.
