Clearance: KoMo Mio Mill, Yellow
This is an R1 clearance item. Please check the tables below to see how we rate our clearance items.
Combine 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.
Power & 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.
A 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.

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.|
|SD||Has moderate damage on a non-working surface, such as a scratch or dent in the housing.|
|NOS||A brand new item that isn't the newest model.|

By Marisela R. in AP on 2/3/2019 - Verified BuyerThis 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!5 out of 5 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Melissa F. in CO on 12/3/2018 - Verified BuyerMy 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!4 out of 4 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Nathan in CA on 10/15/2018 - Verified BuyerI 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!4 out of 4 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Benjamin M. in VA on 10/26/2018 - Verified BuyerThe 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.3 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Jimmie D. in CO on 12/30/2018 - Verified BuyerThis 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!2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By John F. in PA on 10/29/2018 - Verified BuyerThis 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.2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?

By Hannah M. in VA on 6/6/2019 - Verified BuyerThis is our first experience of using a grain mill. I'd heard they were loud and messy but this one is no louder than the mixer on high and I only have to wipe down the machine and the counter it's sat on after using it. The kids (2 and 3 months) love watching the flour coming out the spout. We like the simple design (load at the top and flour at the bottom) and easy clean up. We use it for grinding hard winter wheat for bread and other baked goods like muffins and banana bread. The flour is perfect! The last load we sprouted and dehydrated before grinding - those were hands down the best muffins I've ever eaten!!!1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By David L. in AZ on 5/14/2019 - Verified BuyerI've admired the Komo mills for some time but since I don't do a lot of milling and have a less expensive impact mill, I didn't purchase one until now. I noticed the new Mio model was less expensive yet had the same features as the more expensive model but a somewhat different packaging. I also didn't like the fact that my old mill was messy to clean up after and, because of that, I tended to mill a lot more than what I needed for the current bake. The Komo mill solves this problem and I can mill just what I need. I haven't had a chance to use it much yet but it seems to work fine.1 person didn't find this review helpful. Did you?
