The flour sifter attaches to any KoMo electric grinder except the commercial Jumbo grinder. Starting with whole grain flour, the sifter will allow you to separate out the coarser bran, giving you very fine flour that's ideal for making pastries, cakes, and cookies. The bran can then be used in a variety of other products including baked goods, smoothies, soups, granola, etc.
After first grinding flour from grain, just unscrew the mill's grain hopper, lift out the upper stone, and screw the sifter assembly on where the hopper was. With your just-milled flour in the sifter chamber, flip the mill switch on, and rotating brushes quickly work the finest flour through the screen at bottom, and out through the mill spout, so the bran remains above.
A strong tornado-like vortex is formed in the flour during operation, which quickly circulates all the flour through the chamber.
Three interchangeable screens are included, with mesh sizes of 1.25 (15 mesh), .80 (19 mesh) and .63mm (24 mesh), for medium, fine and extra fine sifting. Capacity is 14 ounces.
Product tips: After you've filled the Plexiglas tube with flour, don't lift on the tube itself, because that could cause a flour spill. Instead, lift by grasping the sifter's wood base. Also, when inserting the Plexiglas tube into the wood base, be sure the two spring-loaded balls in the base snap into the two sockets near one edge of the tube; this will keep the tube securely in place during sifting.
