Description

KoMo Fidibus 21

Handmade in Austria, KoMo's Fidibus 21 grain mill is compact but powerful. Its attractive beechwood veneer cabinet houses a set of advanced corundum-ceramic burrs and a strong, high efficiency motor with the torque and stamina needed for grinding grain. Its solid beechwood hopper holds nearly two pounds of grain, yet the mill's compact footprint requires little space in your kitchen.

The Fidibus 21 grinds 5 to 6 oz. of flour per minute for bread flour texture. It's the ideal grain mill for exploring the joys of cooking with healthful, natural foods.

What It Grinds

The Fidibus 21 will grind soft or hard wheat, oat groats (dehulled oats), rice, triticale, kamut, spelt, buckwheat, barley, rye, millet, teff, quinoa, amaranth, and sorghum. It will also grind lentils, most dry beans (pinto, red, kidney & more), and dried, non-oily spices. It isn't suitable for garbanzo beans (chickpeas), herbs, oilseeds like flax or sesame, popcorn, or fibrous materials.

  • “If you've never experienced truly fresh bread you're really in for a treat! From the time you start grinding to the finished baked product the aroma is truly appetizing. The Fidibus 21 is easy to use and clean, and looks beautiful.”

    – Kathleen S., MN

Whole grain carrot cakeThe KoMo Fidibus 21 grinds oats to a wonderfully soft, fine textured flour, but open the stones about five clicks wider than you would for a hard grain like wheat, otherwise the soft oat flour will fill the stones' furrows and infeed will stop. Opening the stones farther will give you a cereal grind for porridge, or coarser yet for cracked oats, similar to steel-cut.

Range of Grind Texture

Grind texture is continuously adjustable from super 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. Cleanup is minimal and easy, and access to the milling chamber takes only a moment, requiring no tools.

Award winning performance

KoMo's Fidibus 21 mill received the highest rating from the German natural products magazine Oeko Test, and it's one of our most popular KoMo grinders.

Choose from 110V or 230V models

The KoMo Fidibus 21 electric grain mill is available in the standard 110V version for use on U.S. power, or a 230V version for use overseas. Mills with 230V power are equipped with a Euro plug. More details about the KoMo Fidibus 21 mill are available under the specs tab, above.

Optional interchangeable inserts

If you prepare food for someone with a food allergy, see KoMo's optional interchangeable insert system. This innovative solution lets you grind different types of grain in the same mill while keeping food types completely separate.

  • “First off, shipping was insanely fast. It's so wonderful, works perfectly, and gets used every day. Adjusting from coarse to fine is straightforward and simple… Holds a lot of grain and makes flour in a very reasonable amount of time. I recommend it to everyone I know!”

Whole Grain Nutrition: Harvest the Benefits!

Imagine that for years, your children ate mainly candy. Imagine that you did, too. Imagine an entire nation on a candy diet. Imagine the health consequences.

Whole grain pancakesNatural whole grains contain a myriad of health-essential nutrients, from proteins to vitamins and amino acids. But "white flour" consists only of the starchy endosperm of the wheat kernel. In its natural form the endosperm provides wholesome energy, but it's the least nutrient-rich part of the grain. Removed are the nutrient-packed bran, wheat germ, and wheat germ oil. Then to make it extra white, industrial processors go further, chemically bleaching it, and returning just enough of a few vitamins to stave off beriberi and rickets. They're allowed to call the end product "Enriched Flour" but a truthful label would read "Impoverished Flour." This snow white, denutritionalized substance is a commodity worth billions of dollars annually to its merchandisers because of a commercially useful trait: Unlimited shelf life. No matter how long it sits in the mass distribution channel, it can't go bad precisely because there's actually nothing left in it that can go bad. Nutritionally, it's bad when bagged. A few companies have grown enormously rich marketing this pseudo-food on the basis of convenience, ease, and its dazzling white appearance. But a blind eye was turned to the consequences of replacing real whole grain flour with something that looks special, yet is virtually devoid of nutrition. In essence, candy. So widely has this nutritional travesty become accepted that we call it—and think of it as—wheat flour. But to depart further from natural grain flour would scarcely be possible. Then to make matters worse, artificial sweeteners, flavors and colors, appetite stimulants and preservatives are added to many of our foods. "Artificial" tells you those things aren't naturally food. But have you ever wondered what they actually are, then? Did you know some of them are actually petroleum derivatives? And what unintended side effects might those complex counterfeit compounds have on us?

The human body is an absolute marvel; scientists have a long way to go to understand a tenth of how we work. But as capable and as resilient as our bodies are, common sense and history teach that we need wholesome, nutritious food to remain healthy and strong. The denatured byproducts being mass marketed today don't provide what we need, because they've been profoundly altered by processes in which real nutrition is considered last, or not at all.

Homemade artisan whole grain breadsThere's a great solution to this problem. By grinding grains in your kitchen and using the whole grain flour while it's fresh, you get the nutrition needed for strength and health. You also get far tastier food, with genuine character—incomparably more satisfying than today's mass marketed pretenders. After transitioning to whole grains, putting out a plate of white styro-bread will elicit comments like "Why are you giving us this... and where's the good stuff?". Even flour labeled as "whole grain" in stores falls far short of what you can easily grind yourself, because unless it's ground while you wait, the essential Vitamin E in true whole grain flour would go rancid in days (meaning that it's probably been removed), and all nutrients begin steadily oxidizing-away from exposure to oxygen as soon as grain is milled. What's in those bags is not whole grain flour if it's been sitting on a shelf for even a few days; that's literally impossible.

Making real food is more than doable, it's downright fun with help from Pleasant Hill Grain! A grain mill like the KoMo Classic is the place to start. And to make whole grain bread quickly, easily and with consistently wonderful results, nothing beats a quality stand mixer that's capable of mixing and kneading bread that's ready to pop in the oven—quickly and without hand kneading. These machines make it easy to turn the corner to a far better and more enjoyable way of eating!
