KoMo XL Plus Grain Mill
KoMo's Fidibus XL Plus mill offers all the features and performance of the standard XL mill, and adds a "super duty" commercial-rated motor. This means the XL Plus can be operated non-stop for extended periods, even hours at a time, and commercial use is covered under warranty for two years. The XL Plus consumes no more power than the standard XL, so operation remains very economical.
Power & capacity: 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 Plus 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, and the XL Plus can run continuously so you can refill and keep grinding for whatever quantity of flour you need. The texture of the grind is continuously adjustable from 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, 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 Plus 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.
“I'm extremely pleased. The KoMo XL is extremely simple to operate and maintain. I'm amazed by how fine it will grind flour.”
– Robert N., CA
As with all KoMo grinders, cleanup of the Fidibus XL Plus 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.
The excellence of engineering and construction that goes into every KoMo mill means that your mill can be expected to last a lifetime in normal use. Only the finest materials are used to make KoMo grain mills.
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.
Warranty: The KoMo XL Plus grinder is warranted for 2 years of commercial use, or 12 years of home use.

By Mark S. in CA on 4/12/2016 - Verified BuyerMy XL Plus stopped working about two months after I bought it. It was, however, under warranty, and Pleasant Hill Grains happily replaced the motor for free. It has worked without incident for several years of regular use since then. The hopper is too small for a mill that is supposed to be for commercial use: I devised a work-around by cutting out the bottom of a Sterilite plastic bucket and inserting it in the hopper. The lid fits well atop the hopper extension, dampening the noise, and the hopper now has at least triple the capacity of the one that came with the mill.8 out of 8 people found this review helpful.
