Clearance: KoMo Classic Mill, Walnut
This is an R1 clearance item. Please check the tables below to see how we rate our clearance items.
Designed by Wolfgang Mock of Germany, the KoMo Classic electric grain mill has a special appeal to lovers of elegant design, natural materials and fine craftsmanship. KoMo believes design sophistication lies not in more complexity, but in simplicity: A design is finished when no extraneous parts remain. The Classic's construction of new American Walnut with fingerjointed corners embodies the warm and simple goodness of whole grain foods.
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.
“We love our mill. It makes high quality flour and cracked wheat… and it's so user-friendly our teen son has taken to milling his own flour to make tasty wheat loaves in our bread maker.”
– Matt W., WA
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 8-9 ounces of flour per minute for bread flour texture. Its large solid wood hopper holds 2 lb., 1 oz. of grain, and as with all KoMo mills, the Classic can run continuously so you can refill and keep grinding for whatever quantity of flour you need.
All dry grains can be ground with the KoMo 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, 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 Classic 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.
Easy to live with: As with all KoMo grinders, cleanup of the Classic 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. Sound level is a big issue with many grain mills; being among the world's quietest-running grinders, KoMo's products are kind to your ears and your nerves.
“I’m impressed by its solid construction and the beauty of the wood. Both the coarse and fine grinds are just as I like them.”
– Thia T., WA
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.
KoMo electric grain mills are the product of collaboration between Wolfgang Mock of Germany and Peter Koidl of Austria, whose innovations have led to many advancements in modern grain mill design. As the exclusive U.S. importer of KoMo grain mills, Pleasant Hill Grain is proud to represent their fine European craftsmanship to our customers.

Expanded Ratings Descriptions

By Roxanne T. in WA on 2/17/2015 - Verified BuyerI had another mill for 25 years that worked better than any other I'd looked at--but after grinding enough flour to make fresh bread every week, it finally wore out. I was worried that I wouldn't find anything I liked as well. I did a lot of research before deciding to purchase the KoMo. The good news is I'm THRILLED with the KoMo. It's everything I'd hoped for and more. My first requirement was that it make flour fine enough to be used without having to add white flour to improve the texture of my bread. The flour is so light and fine, I don't need anything but the whole wheat. It makes a great loaf. The bonus is the KoMo also makes a very coarse cereal grind. I've been making whole wheat cereal for breakfast and it's delicious. I can adjust the grind from pretty crunchy to fine. I like a mix in my cereal so it's creamy with enough texture that it isn't mushy. My old mill blew flour all around the room and sounded like an airplane taking off. And it makes no mess—really! I didn't think that was possible, since it was shooting out of a spout, but it's absolutely clean. It's also very quiet. I'm so happy with this mill I can't wait to go buy lots of new grains and try new recipes. Thank you Pleasant Hill Grain. I can always rely on you for great customer service too!59 out of 59 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Kenneth W. in CA on 2/26/2015 - Verified BuyerAfter watching many on-line videos and reading hundreds of reviews, I decided to make this significant purchase. It really is a piece of art in the kitchen and it is cool to run. I ground rice for the break-in and wheat berries since then. I made three loaves of bread and they turned out great. I'm hoping this investment will pay for itself by improving my health. My advice is to go for it and make the purchase. I'm glad I did.35 out of 35 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Peter T. in LA on 2/25/2015 - Verified BuyerQuiet, efficient, compact, of unbelievably aesthetically sublime construction, and so much better than the other grain mills we've endured for the past thirty-some years, this machine should be deemed an heirloom. Buy it. You'll be glad you did.30 out of 30 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Rebecca W. in CO on 1/3/2017 - Verified BuyerI was so scared to buy another grain mill after mine of 30 years finally had to be retired. I kept using mine even though I had to put a dish towel over it to keep flour from going all over, and had to hold the on button to keep it going. I am so happy with this grain mill. This KoMo Classic grain mill is the BEST! I read so many reviews and watched videos of reviews and am telling you to save your time, and just buy this one! It really is the best! It is worth saving up for! I love how it works. It's not loud and no mess on the counter. I was worried because it didn't fit in the space I had for my old grain mill and I like things put off the counter, but I love having the KoMo out on my counter, because It is such a great design.23 out of 23 people found this review helpful.

By Jennifer H. in MN on 7/4/2016 - Verified BuyerCustomer service is amazing! You answered all my questions and made sure I got this for my husband on time! He loves his KoMo Classic mill and the things he's cooking and baking now are incredible. One of the best purchases and one of the best websites.21 out of 21 people found this review helpful.

By Cat on 4/22/2016 - Verified BuyerI ordered my KoMo Classic to replace a manual mill I bought and returned because the paint inside the grinding chamber flaked off and I wasn't confident that would not happen again. I liked the workout from grinding by hand but upon using the KoMo, it was immediately obvious that I'll be baking a lot more as a result:
1) Speed: I can put the grain in the hopper and do something else (briefly! ) while flour magically appears; removing the need to tag 1/2 hour to every recipe to "make flour" = more time to bake
2) Low maintenance (just dust off; it doesn't throw flour everywhere) and not having to clean, disassemble then put away the manual mill each time. These are *significant* time savings for me (may be less of an issue for people who can mount the manual mill more permanently).
3) Call me shallow, but this machine is nice to look at. I got the walnut finish and it makes me happy to look at it (same way the looks of my 20+ yr Kitchenaid mixer make me happy). Form and function, yeah!
4) Multi-use: beyond flour, can use the coarse setting to crack grains for porridge and some bread recipes
Between returning the manual mill and receiving the KoMo, I tried baking with store-bought whole wheat flour and was (as every time before) unhappy with the results. Freshly ground flour tastes and behaves differently. That reminded me of why I'd decided to buy a mill in the first place.
P.S. Pleasant Hill's customer service is fantastic!18 out of 18 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Julia L. in AZ on 11/17/2015 - Verified BuyerI had wanted a grain mill for a while, but didn't want to throw away money on something inferior that would only last a few years. I wanted a work horse that could literally make the daily grind and I wouldn't need to fuss over or clean it up. Finally saved enough pennies for this one and it delivers! Simple, efficient, and elegant. It was worth the wait, and in the end much more economical.14 out of 14 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Norman D. in OR on 2/8/2015 - Verified BuyerThe mill is expensive but worth it! Beauty in simplicity and value. I have had it a month or so and have made a dozen or so loaves of the staff of life and I am happy with it. The true test of a well engineered machine is found in its longevity and it will take the rest of my natural life to find out just how good the KoMo Classic really is. So far I have no reason to doubt this machine will grace my granddaughter's kitchen some day and she's only nine!14 out of 14 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Elizabeth J. in FL on 12/17/2016 - Verified BuyerI had my eye on the KoMo grain mills for a long time and the opportunity arose for the purchase of the KoMo Classic. It is a beautiful mill that grinds grain perfectly. Now I enjoy making my weekly sourdough bake with freshly milled grains. It is so nice looking that I can leave it on the counter instead of having to tuck away and bring out something I use at least once a week. The ordering process was seamless and my mill arrived very quickly. Thank you Pleasant Hill Grain!12 out of 12 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By L.C. in NY on 8/4/2016 - Verified BuyerWe love our KoMo classic, the flour is so fine, better than I expected. We use it mostly for einkorn.12 out of 12 people found this review helpful. Did you?
