KoMo FlicFloc Oat/Grain Flaker
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 FlicFloc has exposed, stainless steel conical rollers that rotate on ball bearings in a case of laminated beechwood. The crank turns very 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.
Oats are a naturally soft grain and more of our customers roll oats than any other grain in their FlicFloc flaker—but many other grains including wheat, rye, barley and millet can be flaked too, with a little preparation. These grains are normally dry and hard, and without a little special preparation they'll shatter rather than crush. 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 crush, rather than shattering. At the same time this contact with water starts an enzymatic process which makes it easier for you to assimilate the minerals in the grain.
“I've used the FlicFloc every day since receiving it and it's fantastic. I flake oat groats for Muesli that I make and don't even bother to cook the flaked oats. Very easy to use and performs flawlessly. Simply an engineering marvel.”
– Jake K., TX
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 flaking.
Standing 7.25" tall, the FlicFloc 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.
“The FlicFloc is adorable and so simple to use. There is an improvement in the flavor of freshly flaked oats!”
– Katherine J., MD
Pleasant Hill Grain carries a wide range of oat groats.

By Alvinzo W. in NY on 10/21/2015 - Verified BuyerThe FlicFloc is so much better built than our previous oat roller. We had the type that has wide rollers and looks like a pasta machine. The KoMo design is so much better. It turns very smoothly and the output is consistent. We sometimes roll flax seed to go in the oatmeal. It works great. The oil in the flax gums up the rollers some, but if you send the flax through first the oats following will clean the flax residue off. We found that filling the hopper to heaping will fill the glass below and that is very close to 1 cup.18 out of 18 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By David H. in VT on 1/6/2015 - Verified BuyerFlakes oats as described. Not as thin as a store bought oat, but if soaked overnight cook instantly (1 min). Flavor is unparalleled with this approach, and allowed us to use local oats. Be sure to clamp it well, as the handle can really generate some force (a good thing).7 out of 7 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Barbara N. in ME on 4/22/2016 - Verified BuyerThe mill and its construction are nice looking and I believe are sturdy. Rolls the oats into thinner flakes than I expected, which is very nice. Attaches to table tightly. My only complaint is that the corners and edges are so perfectly joined that it makes them rather sharp. Set the flaker up each time I use it, a simple task, I handle the edges a lot. I sanded all the edges which took maybe a minute. It would have been nice if it came sanded, ya know the item isn't cheap. I will still give five stars because the flaker is even nicer than I expected.4 out of 4 people found this review helpful.

By Preben J. in UT on 6/12/2015 - Verified BuyerI use this unit to make my own fresh oat flakes rather than buy them. It truly is easy and quick to make a single serving and now they are freshly made as opposed to those store bought which have been under way for a long time as well as stored in our kitchen for a long time and thus old. I eat them dry, i. e. I don't cook them, and add a bit of milk, and enjoy my "own" product. I highly recommend this unit, no need for a motor either in my opinion.3 out of 4 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Laura W. in WV on 11/13/2015 - Verified BuyerI really like this flaker. It works like a charm, simple and easy to do (even my husband can work it). I've used it for oats, barley, spelt and even made "mini oats" from the steel cut kind. No electricity needed! AND so nicely built; it looks great on my counter. Win, win, win. A real kitchen treasure.1 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Brenda L. in OK on 12/1/2014 - Verified BuyerI bought oat groats and they cook up like rice. I finally broke down and bought this flaker after reading about grains/seeds and how to get the nutrients from them. Also, any recipe calls for them to be rolled. Kind of a cool gadget for seeds and grains.1 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Johnie C. in OR on 5/21/2017 - Verified BuyerI already had a KoMo grain mill and sifter that I love, so figured I couldn't go wrong with the FlicFloc. It does a great job of flaking and my wife loves using it in her bread making. One load makes a serving for my wife and me and I haven't had better oatmeal since I was a kid. I recommend this to anyone that would like to have fresh "seriously good" oats.Was this review helpful to you?
By Debra G. in GA on 5/14/2017 - Verified BuyerI am not a gadget collector. To have space in my kitchen, it needs to have a purpose and frequent use. This little gem has earned a spot! Very nicely flaked oats in minimal time that taste so fresh. Great cooked as oatmeal, made into muesli and baked into cookies. The flaker appears to be well made and sturdy, doesn't take much space on the counter and is nice looking. Happy with this purchase.Was this review helpful to you?
