Clearance: KoMo Mio Mill, Yellow

This is an R1 clearance item. Please check the tables below to see how we rate our clearance items.

Whole grain breakfast breadCombine the freshest-ever look in grain mill design with impeccable grinding performance and what do you get? The iconic NEW KoMo Mio! Rarely has a grain mill introduction created excitement like the buzz for the Mio. One PHG newsletter reader responded immediately: "Are you kidding? Sign me up!" and their enthusiasm has been echoed by many.The striking cabinet of the KoMo Mio is solid European beechwood with trim made of Arboblend, an amazing new injection-moldable bioplastic. Made of wood lignin and cellulose fiber and sometimes referred to as liquid wood, Arboblend is attractive, lightweight and super strong. Consisting of 100% renewable materials, it enables product designers to use wood in ways that were previously impossible. Arboblend's low cost has also allowed KoMo to make the Mio available at a price so low that, for a mill at this quality level, it's nearly as incredible as the Mio's revolutionary construction.

Inside the Mio's sharp exterior is an exceptionally advanced, yet admirably 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 Mio is as natural in its approach as the materials it's made of and the grains it turns into nutritious, delicious, fresh whole grain flour.

Assorted whole grain breadsPower & capacity: All KoMo electric grain mills are equipped with specially developed motors that provide reliable and efficient power. The Mio, with its strong 400 watt motor produces 8-9 ounces of flour per minute for bread flour texture. Its large solid beechwood hopper holds 2 lb., 11 oz. of grain.

All dry grains can be ground with the KoMo Mio 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/chickpeas, 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 Mio 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 Mio is minimal and easy, and full access to the milling stones takes just seconds, without tools. A sealed lid keeps everything clean between uses. Sound level is a big issue with many grinders; being among the world's quietest-running grain mills, KoMo's products are kind to your ears and your nerves.

Rye seed breadA 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, and the European beechwood used in crafting their beautiful cabinetry is sustainably harvested.

At Pleasant Hill Grain, our experience spans the milling spectrum from home-use to commercial. As the exclusive U.S. importer of Austrian-made KoMo mills, Pleasant Hill Grain is proud to represent their fine European craftsmanship to our customers. We'd be delighted to visit with you about a KoMo mill or any aspect of your milling needs. We'd appreciate your business, and we look forward to serving you in any way we can!

Bottom Line: If you’re a highly detail-oriented person, we recommend sticking to “R1.” But after a week’s use, the only real difference between one of these items and a brand new one will be the money you saved.

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.

  • Pure awesomeness!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    This grain mill is GREAT! I was hesitant at first to spend this much on a grain mill considering I have the Vitamix grain container, but I'm so glad I did. I'll mainly be using it to grind wheat berries for bread. If you're in the market for a grain mill, consider this one and you won't be disappointed.

    We're a military family stationed in Japan and we're grateful we were able to buy this and have it shipped to us overseas. So thank you to Pleasant Hill Grain for this!

  • Savings over KoMo Classic not worth it!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    My first experience with a grain mill was my brother's Komo Classic. Having a hard time swallowing the large price tag, I decided to go with the Mio instead. Due to quality control issues, I had to have a replacement sent for the first one. The second was in better shape but still had quality control issues. The truth is, the $150 savings is just not worth it. The Classic seems like it will last a lifetime... the Mio not so much. I returned my Mio and ordered a Classic instead and am SO HAPPY with my choice!
    Moderator:

    Melissa, we're glad you love the KoMo Classic--we agree, it's awesome! And we'd also like to throw in this update: brand-new products like the Mio often have a little wrinkle or two to be ironed out, and the issue you experienced with the Mio has been resolved now. Thank you so much for your business, and for taking the time to send in the review!

  • High Quality
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I had only used the KitchenAid grinder attachment to mill grain before this, and its finest setting was still a ways from store-bought flour. This mill gives a very fine result, is straightforward and easy to use. I was wondering if the price difference from the "Classic" meant a lesser product, but I think it's just a bit smaller with some plastic trim. Very happy with the results.
    Moderator:

    Just to clarify, while the trim on the Mio is, in a sense, "plastic", it's a wood-based material with polymer characteristics, not the petroleum-based material usually associated with the term. Thanks for your review Nathan!

  • Great first mill
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The KoMo arrived quickly and was very well packed for shipment. It produced excellent results after cleaning the stones. Solidly built and the settings are easy to use. The hard spring wheat and Sonoran wheat milled at the finest setting resulted in excellent bread. I am looking forward to many years use.

    By on - Verified Buyer
    This grain mill seems to work quite well. I have two issues with it, though: it has a high-pitched squeal when grinding hard grains such as kamut (otherwise, it is just loud), and the flour is much warmer than I feel it should be.
    Moderator:

    Jimmie, we suspect you're setting the stones too tightly together. We suggest backing the tension off just a little (by simply rotating the hopper counter-clockwise). Over-tightening of burrs does create excess heat. You should get flour that delivers ideal baking performance without any overheating or squealing, just by loosening things up a little. Thanks for your review!

  • Easy to use and quiet.
    By on - Verified Buyer
    This is a snap to adjust for fineness of grind and quiet to use. My previous mill (a high speed impact type) worked well but I needed hearing protection when I ran it. Not so with this mill. It’s about as loud as my stand mixer when grinding. The range of adjustment for fineness of grind is much wider than my previous mill. I have been able to grind from a coarse “grits-like” texture to fine flour. I believe it can grind more coarsely but I have not needed to do so yet. Finally, it is very attractive and fits easily on my countertop under my upper cabinets. It’s very convenient to leave it out and grind what I need just as I am ready to use it. I’m very happy with this mill so far.

    The KoMo Mio is a very nice mill. So far, we have used it to grind hard red, hard white, and soft white wheat berries and it has worked great. It's very easy to adjust the texture of the flour. While it's fast for grinding several cups of flour, it also works great when you need just a small amount of flour for a recipe. Just place a measuring cup under the spout of the KoMo and add wheat berries until you have the amount of flour needed. It runs fairly quiet for a grain mill and it doesn't jerk or move when you turn it on like some impact mills do.

  • Even better than expected
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I previously was using my mom's old stone grinder from the 70s which grinds well but it's slow, super loud and very dusty. I went back and forth about which model to get and went with the Mio because of its tiny footprint on my baking counter. It is fast and no dust at all. Love it! I have used it for wheat, spelt and rye so far and I'm in love. It has taken my sourdough breads to another level!
