KoMo XL Grain Mill
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: 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 12 ounces per minute for bread flour texture.
“After several weeks of use I'm extremely pleased. The KoMo XL is extremely simple to operate and maintain. I'm amazed by how fine it will grind flour.”
– Robert N., CA
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, including soft or hard wheat, oat groats (dehulled oats), rice, triticale, kamut, spelt, buckwheat, barley, rye, millet, teff, quinoa, amaranth, sorghum and dent (field) corn. It will also grind lentils, dry beans (pinto, red, garbanzo, 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. The KoMo XL will grind oats to a wonderfully soft, fine textured flour, but 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 steel-cut.
As with all KoMo grinders, cleanup of the Fidibus XL is minimal and easy, and full access to the milling stones takes just ten seconds without tools. A sealed wooden lid keeps everything clean between uses.
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.

I've been grinding flour to make bread for over 30 years. Recently my old electric French mill which had served me well finally quit. After reading extensively about new electric mill options, I chose the KoMo XL. After several weeks of use I'm extremely pleased. The KoMo is extremely simple to operate and maintain. I'm amazed by how fine it will grind flour. My old French stone mill would not grind nearly as fine as the KoMo. The customer service from Pleasant Hill Grain was excellent.12 out of 12 people found this review helpful. Did you?
Started with the old stone Magic Mill over forty-five years ago and moved into the XL five years ago. Much tidier package and output is good too. User's manual is a bit incomplete... After adjusting the stone faces of a cold mill for finely ground flour, if more than two cups of grain are being ground, it is important to re-adjust the stones every two cups of grain until the mill comes fully up to its operating temperature or until you finish that batch of grinding. Ours usually requires no more than two additional adjustments after the initial one. Expansion from the heat of the grinding process will otherwise cause the stones to progressively rub harder and harder against each other. Since the five years we've had ours, KoMo may have this update in their manual by now...
I regularly inspect the stone faces and their grinding cavities. Over the five years there appears to be NO deterioration or breakdown of either the grit or its binder media.
The mill appears to be a collection of improvements on most all the great features of the old Magic Mill and I really like the quality of workmanship that is evident in its appearance on our counter-top.8 out of 8 people found this review helpful. Did you?
Excellent design. Performs well. Easy to maintain. The only downside is that it heats the flour somewhat an unavoidable side effect of a small wheel running at high rotation.6 out of 6 people found this review helpful. Did you?
I love my grain mill. I love that I can change it from course to fine. I grind my white wheat right into my bread bowl. It makes the best bread ever. I have been making all my own bread for my family for 37 years and this is the best. We are even going to raise our own wheat this year now that I have this grain mill.5 out of 5 people found this review helpful. Did you?

I purchased this awesome mill for home use and to tell the truth it is the best purchase I have ever made.4 out of 4 people found this review helpful. Did you?
This mill replaced one with plastic parts and a mechanism that 'exploded' the grain rather than ground it. I am so happy with this machine, which I've had over a year and used frequently. I recommend it highly!4 out of 4 people found this review helpful. Did you?
Looks really beautiful on the counter and makes lovely flour. For an electric mill, this is an excellent choice.3 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?

I have really enjoyed my grain mill! It's louder than my Hawos but it has also more horsepower. Flour comes out super fine and I also bought the sifter and with that I can separate the flour from the bran. HIghly recommend both.3 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?
