KoMo'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 fine flour to coarse meal and cracked grain, a 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, kidney & more), and dried, non-oily spices. It isn't suitable for herbs, oilseeds like flax or sesame, popcorn, or fibrous materials.
Dent (field) corn and soybeans can be ground to any texture from cracked to a 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 of 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.
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.
