The XL grain mill is a world class mill designed by KoMo. The KoMo 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 Classics attractive construction of solid native Beachwood and finger jointed 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 stones of the XL are designed for particularly aggressive grain feeding and with its high strength 600 watt motor, this mill produces 200gram of flour per minute at the finest setting. Its large solid beech hopper holds 1.2 kg 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.
Easy Care: As with all KoMo grinders, clean-up 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.

The Rationale of having a Stone mill
Grain seeds can be seen as a condensed and sleeping plant. It contains all the genes, nutrients/building blocks necessary to reproduce. Grains are an extremely nutrient dense food for its size. Whole grain is rich in vitamins, bio-available minerals, essential fatty acids, amino acids, enzymes, phytochemicals, antioxidants, carbohydrates and aromatic elements. It is preferable to store your whole grain, which stores well, and to mill or roll only your daily flour/grain requirements. This will ensure that the flour or rolled grain is completely fresh, optimally nutritious and deliciously palatable.
As you can see
Nutrition lies in nothing but the whole grain!
Any milling or rolling process kills the grain, and oxygen is introduced into the equation. After the processing of grains, spoiling, oxidation and decomposition is a natural and inevitable process, similar to that of grated apple which oxidizes and turns brown. Freshly stone-milled flour is packed with nutrients, but has a limited shelf life of only a couple of days, as the essential fatty acids, amino acids and antioxidants in the germ start to oxidize and turn rancid once milled/rolled. In fact, the essential fatty acids turn into a toxic trans-fatty acid. You can store conventional white and brown flour for much longer, since the germ with its spoiling qualities were removed, but these flours are almost totally devoid of nutrition. In most conventionally milled flours, the germ which contains almost all of the essential nutrients, is discarded due to its spoiling qualities. Sadly even some commercial stone millers use the process of de-germing to separate and remove the germ from the flour in order to enhance shelf life. However, with a stone mill in your house, you can take full control by milling grain only on demand. Home stone milling ensure no oxidization or nutrient loss which in turn offers numerous health benefits. When previously wheat- or gluten-intolerant individuals start to enjoy freshly milled organic whole grain, it has been found that the intolerance disappears almost immediately and consumers gain the added benefits of losing weight while gaining vitality.
