whole grain sourdough slicedThe KoMo XL grain mill might be thought of as a supersized version of the very popular KoMo Classic mill. It combines the Classic's attractive construction of solid native beechwood and fingerjointed corners with an even more powerful motor. Cabinet size is also a little larger.

Power & capacity: Handmade in Austria, all KoMo mills are equipped with specially developed electric motors that provide reliable and efficient, yet extremely quiet power. The grinding burrs of the XL are designed for particularly aggressive grain feeding and with its high strength 600 watt motor, this mill produces 12 ounces per minute for bread flour texture.

The large solid beechwood hopper holds 2 lb., 10 oz. of grain. The texture of the grind is continuously adjustable from super fine flour to coarse meal and cracked grain, simply by turning the hopper bowl to align its index mark with the graphic scale on the front of the mill.

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/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 XL 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.

As with all KoMo grinders, cleanup of the Fidibus XL is minimal and easy, and full access to the milling stones takes just ten seconds without tools. A sealed wooden lid keeps everything clean between uses.

Optional interchangeable inserts: If you prepare food for someone with a food allergy, see KoMo's optional interchangeable insert system. This ingenious solution lets you grind different types of grain in the same mill while keeping food types completely separate.

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.

Whole grain pancakesNatural 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.

Homemade artisan whole grain breadsThere'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 grain mill like the KoMo Classic is the place to start. And to make whole grain bread quickly, easily and with consistently wonderful results, nothing beats a quality stand mixer that's capable of 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!

  • Excellent Home Grain Mill
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I've been grinding flour to make bread for over 30 years. Recently my old electric French mill which had served me well finally quit. After reading extensively about new electric mill options, I chose the KoMo XL. After several weeks of use I'm extremely pleased. The KoMo is extremely simple to operate and maintain. I'm amazed by how fine it will grind flour. My old French stone mill would not grind nearly as fine as the KoMo. The customer service from Pleasant Hill Grain was excellent.

  • Great Home Grain Mill
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Started with the old stone Magic Mill over forty-five years ago and moved into the XL five years ago. Much tidier package and output is good too. User's manual is a bit incomplete... After adjusting the stone faces of a cold mill for finely ground flour, if more than two cups of grain are being ground, it is important to re-adjust the stones every two cups of grain until the mill comes fully up to its operating temperature or until you finish that batch of grinding. Ours usually requires no more than two additional adjustments after the initial one. Expansion from the heat of the grinding process will otherwise cause the stones to progressively rub harder and harder against each other. Since the five years we've had ours, KoMo may have this update in their manual by now...

    I regularly inspect the stone faces and their grinding cavities. Over the five years there appears to be NO deterioration or breakdown of either the grit or its binder media.

    The mill appears to be a collection of improvements on most all the great features of the old Magic Mill and I really like the quality of workmanship that is evident in its appearance on our counter-top.

    Excellent design. Performs well. Easy to maintain. The only downside is that it heats the flour somewhat an unavoidable side effect of a small wheel running at high rotation.

  • Love it!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I love my grain mill. I love that I can change it from course to fine. I grind my white wheat right into my bread bowl. It makes the best bread ever. I have been making all my own bread for my family for 37 years and this is the best. We are even going to raise our own wheat this year now that I have this grain mill.

    By on - Verified Buyer
    This mill replaced one with plastic parts and a mechanism that 'exploded' the grain rather than ground it. I am so happy with this machine, which I've had over a year and used frequently. I recommend it highly!

  • 'Form ever follows function'... as coined by American Architect Lois Sullivan
    By on - Verified Buyer
    What a beautifully functioning tool! It looks, feels, & sounds authentic!

    I've been grinding whole grains for the past 27 years. After my trusty Magic Mill finally gave up, we purchased a Nutrimill… definitely a step up from the Magic Mill. But after my 23 year old, bread baking daughter just moved and took the Nutrimill, I needed a grain mill. After much research, I decided on the KoMo XL Grain Mill. I am so happy with my decision!

    I love looking at this quality mill sitting on my counter as it is ready to provide me with nutritious whole goodness at a moments notice! When you turn it on, it gives a wonderful hum, nothing like the 'shrill jet airplane' sound of my previous mills. The volume increases when the grain is added to the hopper, but the lid helps to muffle the coarse grinding sound. My son was delighted that you can have a conversation standing right next to the mill as it’s grinding!

    I often grind fine pastry flour for quick recipes and this mill is so convenient with the flour dispensing right into your bowl. The four texture is just as fine and fluffy as my past mills with the added option of grinding extra coarse. It’s easy-cleaning, too... no more taking apart the flour dispenser, brushing off all the parts, shaking out the filter, dumping the flour cup, and reassembling like my mills of the past. The speed of grinding is plenty fast, with very little flour dust in the air making it much cleaner than my previous mills.

    A very special mill!
