KoMo Fidibus XL Grain Mill by Wolfgang Mock
The Wolfgang grain mill is a world class mill designed by master craftsman, Wolfgang Mock. The Wolfgang mills are precision engineered and imported from Germany, assuring the highest quality materials and craftsmanship.
The KoMo XL grain mill: The Fidibus XL mill can be thought of as a “supersized” version of the KoMo Classic mill. It combines the Classic’s attractive construction of solid native beechwood and fingerjointed corner with a larger motor. Cabinet size is also a bit larger.
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 are designed for particularly aggressive grain feeding and with its high strength 600 watt motor, this mill produces 7 ounces of flour per minute at the finest setting. Its large solid beech hopper holds 2 lb., 10 oz. of grain, and as with all KoMo mills, the XL can run continuously so you can refill and keep grinding for whatever quantity of flour you need. All dry grains can be ground, including wheat (both hard and soft), oat groats (dehulled oats), rice, triticale, kamut, spelt, buckwheat, barley, rye, millet, teff, quinoa, amaranth, sorghum and dent (field) corn. It will also grind spices, lentils and dry beans (pinto, red, garbanzo, kidney, etc.) It isn’t suitable for herbs, oilseeds like flax or sesame, popcorn, or fibrous materials.
Easy Care: 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.
A Lifetime Mill: 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.

Wolfgang freshly milled grains are far more nourishing and flavorful than flours which are weeks or even days old. Freshly milled flour from the Wolfgang exits the shoot at a temperature only sightly warm to the touch.
Whole grains begin to oxidize and spoil as soon as they’re milled, causing a loss in nutritional value and flavor. At a minimum, it’s important to check the shelf date on store bought whole grains and refrigerate or freeze what you keep on hand.
Ideally, purchase whole grains in bulk and mill at home as needed. Whole grains keep indefinitely and hold their nutritional value. Milling your own grains with a Wolfgang grain mill takes less than a minute and cleanup about the same.
