KoMo Hand Grinder
The KoMo hand grinder is constructed of solid maple hardwood and stainless steel, with precisely fitted corundum-ceramic millstones. An extra large hardwood handle provides smooth cranking, and the transparent milling chamber provides a full view of the hand mill's interior.
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.
“We love this mill! It grinds smoothly and as finely as you'd like. It doesn't require too much elbow grease (I'm super petite). The mill is so beautiful and it's an ornament for the kitchen in its own right.”
– Jingjing S., NY

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.
Natural 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 characteristic: 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? 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.
There'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 millled. 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 high speed self cleaning grain mill like the Nutrimill is the place to start. And to make whole grain bread quickly, easily and with consistently wonderful results, nothing beats the Bosch Universal Kitchen Center... a full-function mixer capable of both 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!

By Thomas H. in OH on 11/12/2019 - Verified BuyerMy first impression upon opening the box containing the mill was the quality of the craftmanship. The maple was smooth and finished with a light stain. The accompanying parts (crank, stones, counter screws) had a solid hand feel, and when assembled the sum of these parts equaled attention to detail and pride of workmanship. The mill serves my needs aptly. When I save more money, I will likely add to this as well as purchase other products.1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By Jingjing S. in NY on 1/19/2017 - Verified BuyerI already own an electric KoMo mill but purchased this hand mill at my mom's request. We've been using it for a week or so and are loving it! It grinds smoothly and as finely as you'd like. It doesn't require too much elbow grease (for reference I'm super petite and can operate this without any problem). The mill is so beautiful and it's an ornament for the kitchen in its own right.24 out of 25 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Daniel M. in WV on 4/11/2016 - Verified BuyerI bought this as a Christmas gift for my wife, and she loves it. She says her only complaint is that the directions were not very clear.17 out of 18 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By . in OH on 10/2/2018 - Verified BuyerAlthough the instructional manual says that the mill should be able to grind 50 g/min, we (my students and I) were only able to grind 2 g/min... after 20 minutes we barely had enough flour for a muffin! Unfortunately, I have called several times and sent 3 emails requesting help and have not had satisfactory feedback and our questions remain unanswered.Moderator:
PHG did respond to questions and concerns. A video supplied by customer showed that the mill was being turned backward.30 out of 32 people found this review helpful. Did you?
