KoMo FidiFloc Mill & Flaker
The versatile KoMo FidiFloc combines a motor-powered grinding mill with a hand operated flaking mill. Two models are available, one rated at 360 watts and the other at 250 watts. The same flaker is included with both.
The FidiFloc Medium produces 8-9 ounces of flour per minute for bread flour texture and the FidiFloc 21 grinds 5-6 ounces per minutes. Precisely fitted corundum-ceramic burrs grind to any texture you choose, from fine flour to coarse meal or cracked grain. All by simply rotating the hopper to align with your choice on the front texture-setting scale.
The solid beech hopper holds 1 lb., 15 oz. of grain, enough for over two pounds of whole grain bread. The difference between the two FidiFloc models is that if you want to mill extremely fine flour, the larger 360 watt motor will allow more extended milling. Such exceptionally fine textured flour could be desirable for delicate pastries (after sifting) but wouldn't be beneficial for making bread.
The grinder side will grind 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 and dry beans (pinto, red, garbanzo, kidney & more.) 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 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 FidiFloc 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 for porridge, or coarser yet for cracked oats, similar to steel-cut.
The FidiFloc's flaker is perfect for rolling all softer grains like oat groats. It has a 6.4 oz. hopper and flakes 3.5 oz. of oats per minute. The flaker handle is removable from the cabinet, and the entire flaker assembly also can be removed from the cabinet for separate use if you prefer.
