KoMo Classic Features
KoMo classic is elegantly crafted with solid beech wood. It looks like a piece of art and makes a perfect decorative piece for your kitchen. The mill is compact yet sturdy and comes ready-to-use right out of the box. It weighs 16-pound which is optimally distributed. Thus, it won’t slip or slide during use.
The grain mill is made in Austria and is equipped with ceramic and corundum millstones. It is powered by a 360 watt or 1/2 HP motor with industrial-strength that works efficiently to produce eight to nine ounces flour per minute for bread flour texture.
For other textures, you can easily grind 3.5ounces/minute. The solid wood hopper can easily hold about two pounds of grain at once. If you run it continuously, you can keep refilling the hopper and continue to grind.
The consistency of the ground grains and beans is very fine and smooth. Not only does the product grind more finely when compared to other electric mills in the market, but it is also capable of cracking the grains more coarsely than its peers.
If you are grinding wheat flour, you will be able to feel the silkiness and fine texture when you rub the soft flour between your fingers. This is what makes it earn brownie points.
The KoMo Classic wins on this one. Unlike the noisy electric mills in the market, KoMo produces a sound of up to 70 decibels. It hums like a microwave when you first switch it on. When you start grinding, the noise is not shrill or whiny, but still noticeable. It produces a sound that is comparable to the one made by a vacuum cleaner, louder than a coffee grinder but lower than a lawnmower. The sound, thus, will never be a problem for you.
P.S. Take a look at the video below. It’s no in English but you can hear the sound and see how the KoMo grain mills work.
Ease of use
The machine works on a simple plug-in, grind, plug-out routine. Put the grains in the grinder from the top and collect them in their ground state below in a bowl. You can keep adding more grains as the machine continues to function. You also may need to rotate the bowl below if it starts to fill up. It is fast, accessible and very easy to use.
You can grind all types of dry grains and beans in the grain mill. These include wheat, oat groats, rice, triticale, kamut, barley, buckwheat, rye, millet, amaranth, teff, quinoa, sorghum, field corn, pinto, kidney beans, garbanzo and lentils. You can grind whatever quantity you need without worrying about the mill’s efficiency. You would get the same results in the fifth ounce as you would in the first one.
This grain mill is designed to give more and take less. You can open the milling chamber by simply rotating the hopper anti-clockwise. It lifts off and enables you to see the millstones inside. An added lid covers the hopper so that you do not need to clean it yourself. This self-cleaning machine hardly needs any maintenance or attention.
The wooden construction and corundum and ceramic burrs are very solid and sturdy. Once you have it in front of you, you can feel that this mill is not going to retire anytime soon. There are no extra parts that might need repairs frequently.
The KoMo Classic Grain mill comes with a limited 12-year warranty by the manufacturer. This proves the faith of the maker in this machine. It is hard to doubt the quality and efficiency of a product that can last this long.
For a high-end machine, KoMo is affordably priced. The KoMo Classic cost is justified by the very high product quality and all the features that it offers. It can pay itself off quickly by allowing you to freshly grind your grains and beans at the comfort of your home.
The KoMo mills have two other impressive variants – the KoMo Medium Grain Mill and the KoMo Duett Flaker and Grain Mill. The Medium mill is just a smaller version of the Classic model. It is priced a little bit cheaper than the classic version and weighs 15 pounds.The KoMo Duett Flaker is a masterpiece with dual functions. It has two separate motors, one to grind and the other one to flake. Both work simultaneously and independently. The grinder hopper has a 10-ounce capacity with a 360-watt motor and the flaker has a 6.4-ounce capacity with a 140-watt motor. You can also adjust the flake thickness between 0.3mm and 0.65mm. This model is an all-round solution for your grain-milling needs.
The only drawback
There is just one drawback to this otherwise perfect machine. Some grains that cannot be ground in this mill, such as popcorn, herbs, oilseeds like flax or sesame and fibrous materials.

Minimal cleanup, hassle-free use, powerful motor, efficient performance and beautiful looks make it a perfect solution for your kitchen.
