KoMo PK 1 Grain Mill - Solid Beechwood
KoMo PK1 - Hexagonal Beauty & 360W Peak Performance
Now with 12 Year Warranty!
Designed by Wolfgang Mock of Germany, the KoMo grain mills have a special appeal to lovers of elegant design, natural materials and fine craftsmanship. KoMo believes design sophistication lies not in more complexity, but in simplicity: A design is finished when no extraneous parts remain.
With its unique hexagonal cabinet, the KoMo PK 1 is the perfect centerpiece of a healthy diet and lifestyle. The internal workings of the PK 1 are identical to the Classic mill, with large 3.35 inch diameter, self sharpening corundum-ceramic burrs and high efficiency 360 watt motor. Its exterior is beautifully crafted entirely of solid beechwood.
All KoMo mills are equipped with specially developed electric motors that are highly reliable and efficient, yet extremely quiet. The PK 1's 360 watt motor enables it to produce 8-9 ounces per minute for bread flour texture. Its solid beech hopper holds 2 lb., 4 oz. of grain.
The PK1 will grind a wide array of grains 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 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 PK 1 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 grind of the PK 1 Mill is continuously adjustable from fine flour to coarse meal and cracked grain, just by turning the hopper bowl. As with all KoMo grinders, cleanup is minimal and easy. Access to the milling chamber takes just a moment and requires no tools.
A lifetime mill: The excellence of engineering and construction that goes into every KoMo electric grain mill means that your mill can be expected to last a lifetime in normal use. Only the finest materials are used to make KoMo mills.
