Fresh, naturally sweet rolled oats or stale, chemically-preserved flakes: Which sound better for your breakfast? If you like the fresh idea, KoMo's personal-sized FlicFloc grain flaker is right up your alley. Its hand-operated design brings an ingenious engineering approach to grain flaking.
Rather than using traditional cylindrical rollers, the Austrian-made FlicFloc has exposed, stainless steel conical rollers that rotate on ball bearings in a cabinet of laminated beechwood. The crank turns extremely easily, and the mill makes a hearty flake from oat groats (oats with the hulls removed) that's thicker and chewier than store-bought flaked oats.
Oats are a naturally soft grain and more of our customers roll oats than any other grain in their FlicFloc flaker—but many other grains including wheat, rye, barley, and millet can be flaked too, with a little preparation. These grains are normally dry and hard, and without a little special preparation they'll shatter rather than crush. To soften them, hold them under running water briefly through a strainer. Then spread the grains on a cloth or towel to let them dry overnight or for at least 3-4 hours. This time will vary depending on the grain used, but a little experimentation will help optimize the process. The softened grain will crush, rather than shattering. At the same time, this contact with water starts an enzymatic process which makes it easier for you to assimilate the minerals in the grain.
A supplied clamp secures the FlicFloc to your table or counter (up to 2-3/16" thick). Then just fill the hopper you're ready to start flaking.
Standing 7.25" tall, the FlicFloc won't take up much space in your cupboard. But while its dimensions are trim, its construction is exceptionally robust. The hopper capacity is 4.2 oz, and the glass receptacle is included.

Had a delay in shipping but they kept me up to date during the whole process. Worth the wait! The only downfall to the product is the hopper on top is small and can't store a lot of product in it during use but works good for making oatmeal for the kids for breakfast. The kids have a little trouble trying to turn the unit but it is pretty easy for an adult to use.
