Clearance: KoMo FlicFloc Oat/Grain Flaker
This is an R1 clearance item. Please check the tables below to see how we rate our clearance items.
Fresh, naturally sweet rolled oats or stale, chemically-preserved flakes: Which sound better for your breakfast? If you favor 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 Austrian-made FlicFloc has exposed, stainless steel conical rollers that rotate on ball bearings in a cabinet of laminated beechwood. The crank turns extremely 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 hard and brittle, and would normally 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 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 and flatten, 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.
Pleasant Hill Grain carries a wide range of oat groats.including

Expanded Ratings Descriptions
|R1||Very close scrutiny is required to tell that the item isn’t brand new. Working surfaces may show slight wear; for example, the bottom-inside of a Bosch mixer bowl may show swirl marks because Bosch mixer whips are designed to “float” against bottom of bowl. Non-working surfaces (cabinet, control panel) look essentially new. Carton may not be perfect.|
|R2||Typically has a small scuff or mark on a non-working surface like a mixer cabinet or the top of a pressure cooker lid.|
|FR||Mostly returned items which have been brought fully up to new-equipment performance specs at the factory.|
|D||Demonstration items have been operated briefly at Pleasant Hill Grain.|
|DIS||These items have never been used but we no longer sell them at full price in our store because it was discontinued by us or by the manufacturer.|
|U||Has had light use.|
|SDB||Has moderate damage or blemish on a non-working surface, such as a scratch or dent in the housing, or paint blemish.|
|NOS||A brand new item that isn't the newest model.|

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.48 out of 48 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).15 out of 15 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.13 out of 13 people found this review helpful.

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.8 out of 8 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Tracie T. in CA on 3/30/2018 - Verified BuyerNot only is this little gadget beautiful, it does its job like a champ! I love oats but I’ve never cared for Quaker due to the fact that they are rolled so thin and become mushy when the liquid is added. This unit rolls them perfectly and the taste is unbelievable compared to already processed oats! I even got my husband eating them every morning with blueberries! We love it!
My update after 6 months of use:
I really love this little thing! I’ve changed out the glass cup and I’m using a plastic one until I find a wooden cup that fits perfectly.
Maybe that’s something that can be an accessory!? Hint hint! Or if anybody knows of where I can get a matching wooden cup, I’m all in! Anywho, I love love love it!

By Janelle S. in WI on 2/7/2017 - Verified BuyerI've wanted a grain roller for quite some time and finally bit the bullet and ordered one after Christmas. I was never a fan of oatmeal, but having the oats freshly rolled made all the difference in the world. I vowed to throw out the package of rolled oats in my pantry and never buy them again. I have also rolled barley, quinoa, buckwheat, flax, chia, sorghum, caraway seed, and anything else I could lay my hands on. Last weekend I rolled several alternative grains and created a raw granola that was out of this world FANTASTIC. Very pleased would be an understatement!6 out of 6 people found this review helpful.

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.4 out of 4 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Astraia M. in NV on 8/28/2018 - Verified BuyerI've used the flaker several times and really like it. The design is so smart and pretty simple to use and my oats taste amazing freshly flaked. Like others mentioned, the little glass cup broke literally the first time I used it. My measuring cup nestles perfectly, so it is not a big loss but they should make thing a bit better. I'm happy but wish I had just paid more and gotten the electric. My electric flour mill, also KoMo, is awesome.3 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By John H. in WI on 3/31/2019 - Verified BuyerI read all the reviews that said how good it was, but I was not sure about the idea of working something like this by hand. But after using it a few times I must say that I am completely happy. It only takes about 30 seconds to flake enough for a nice of oatmeal in the morning, and it really is very easy to turn. It clamps well to my countertop, and I can load it with a 1/4 cup of oat groats which makes about a 1/2 cup of flakes; perfect for breakfast. A little tip is to use the metal part of the handle to give the clamp screw a little extra twist if you have trouble getting it tight enough; do not overdo it.2 out of 2 people found this review helpful.

By Michael L. in CA on 1/21/2018 - Verified BuyerThis little flaker is a marvel of industrial design. it's beautiful, solid, and has a small footprint. Just as my KoMo Classic opened up a new world of flavor, texture, and freshness for us, we have been delighted with oat flakes (including our best ever oatmeal cookies), rye, kamut and buckwheat flakes.2 out of 2 people found this review helpful.
