Handmade in Austria, KoMo’s Fidibus 21 grain mill is compact but powerful. Its attractive beechwood veneer cabinet houses a set of advanced corundum-ceramic burrs and a strong, high efficiency motor with the torque and stamina needed for grinding grain. Its solid beechwood hopper holds nearly two pounds of grain, yet the mill’s compact footprint requires little space in your kitchen.
The Fidibus 21 grinds 5 to 6 oz. of flour per minute for bread flour texture. It’s the ideal grain mill for exploring the joys of cooking with healthful, natural foods.
The Fidibus 21 will grind soft or hard wheat, oat groats (dehulled oats), rice, triticale, kamut, spelt, buckwheat, barley, rye, millet, teff, quinoa, amaranth, and sorghum. It will also grind lentils, most dry beans (pinto, red, kidney & more), and dried, non-oily spices. It isn’t suitable for garbanzo beans (chickpeas), herbs, oilseeds like flax or sesame, popcorn, or fibrous materials.
Dent (field) corn and soybeans can be ground to any texture from cracked to 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 Fidibus 21 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 infeed will stop. Opening the stones further will give you a cereal grind for porridge, or coarser yet for cracked oats, similar to steel-cut.
Grind texture is continuously adjustable from fine flour to coarse meal and cracked grain, simply by turning the hopper bowl to align its index mark with the graphic scale on the front of the mill. Cleanup is minimal and easy, and access to the milling chamber takes only a moment, requiring no tools.
