KoMo XL Plus

Sliced whole grain breadKoMo'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: 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 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 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.

  • “It works even better than I expected. Ultra super finely ground! Two thumbs up!!!”

    – Junsun K., VA

Baker with artisan bouleDent (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.

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. 

Muffins with pumpkin seeds & blueberriesThe 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.

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 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!

KoMo Protects and Restores Forests

  • Early problem, but fine since then; hopper's too small, though there's an easy work-around
    By on - Verified Buyer
    My 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.

    When I received my XL Plus I found up 50 pounds of corn with no problems. First I cracked the corn then ran through once more for very fine flour. Awesome machine. I believe this is a great investment.

  • POWERHOUSE!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I have been grinding my own wheat and baking bread for 25 years. My old Kitchen Mill finally gave out and I started doing research because I knew that replacing my old mill was going to be expensive. Bread baking is not a hobby for me--it is part of life and living healthy. After doing my research, I decided to buy a KoMo mill because of their reputation and consumer feedback. I chose the KoMo XL Plus is because it is designed for bakeries. This mill can grind wheat NON-STOP which is what I do. I grind 20 or more pounds at a time, then pre-measure the amount I need for each bread batch, and freeze each one in freezer bags. Once this is done, I take what I need out of my freezer, warm to room temperature, and bake. I love this mill! It is so much quieter than my old Kitchen Mill and grinds the wheat to perfection. I am so happy with my purchase and highly recommend this mill and any other products made by KoMo. You will not be disappointed! Pleasant Hill is a wonderful company, too. They provide so much help and information and that makes them my "go-to" online store. I am happy with all my purchases from them.

  • Great mill
    By on - Verified Buyer
    This mill replaces a NutriMill that we had for more than 10 years, but ultimately broke due to failure of the internal blades. We make 10-15 loaves of bread every week, so we need a mill that can process a lot of grain and is rated for lots of use. The KoMo XL plus seemed to fit the bill, and so far, has lived up to the expectation. It runs very well, and can produce fine flour or cracked grain very easily.
