Pasta Making FAQs

Is it worth making your own pasta?

Without a doubt, the answer is a resounding yes! Making your own pasta allows you to control the ingredients, ensuring a fresh and wholesome meal every time. Homemade pasta boasts a superior taste and texture compared to its store-bought counterpart, making it a worthy investment of your time and effort. It'll wow your guests and add extra oomph to your next Italian-themed dinner party. Plus, the satisfaction of crafting something from scratch is simply unparalleled.

How to use a pasta making machine?

Using a pasta-making machine may seem daunting at first, but with a little practice, you'll soon be churning out perfect pasta like a pro. Here's a step-by-step guide:

  1. Prepare the Dough: Start by making your pasta dough using flour, eggs, and a pinch of salt. Knead the dough until smooth and elastic, then let it rest for about 30 minutes to relax the gluten.
  2. Divide the Dough: Cut the dough into manageable portions and flatten each piece into a rough rectangle shape with your hands.
  3. Adjust the Machine: Set your pasta maker to the widest setting and feed one piece of dough through the rollers. Fold the dough in half and repeat this process several times, gradually narrowing the width of the rollers with each pass.
  4. Thin the Dough: Continue to pass the dough through the machine, gradually reducing the thickness until you reach your desired pasta thickness. For spaghetti or fettuccine, you'll want to use the appropriate cutting attachment on your pasta maker.
  5. Cut and Dry: Once your pasta is rolled and cut, allow it to dry slightly on a floured surface or drying rack before cooking.

How to clean and maintain a pasta maker?

Proper cleaning and maintenance are essential for keeping your pasta maker in top condition. Here's how to do it:

  1. Clean After Each Use: After making pasta, use a dry brush or cloth to remove any flour or dough residue from the rollers and cutting attachments.
  2. Wipe Down: If necessary, use a damp cloth to wipe down the surfaces of the pasta maker, taking care not to get any moisture into the machine's inner mechanisms.
  3. Oil Occasionally: To prevent rust and keep the moving parts lubricated, apply a thin layer of food-grade mineral oil to the rollers and cutting attachments periodically.
  4. Store Properly: When not in use, store your pasta maker in a dry, cool place away from direct sunlight to prolong its lifespan.
