Tips for Perfect Pasta
• Good pasta dough is firm and
leathery to touch, but also pliable.
It should never stick to your fingers
or crumble and fall apart. Many
factors, such as humidity, brand of
flour used, and size of eggs, may
affect dough consistency. To test
for correct dough consistency,
pinch a small amount of dough
together after mixing with the flat
beater. If the dough stays together
without sticking to your fingers, it
should work well. It may be
necessary to add a small amount
of flour or water to reach correct
dough consistency.
• Divide sheets of rolled pasta into
halves or thirds before cutting into
angel hair or noodles, as they can
become quite long and difficult to
manage.

• Some hand separation may be
necessary when cutting wheat or
spinach dough with the Angel Hair
or Noodle Cutter. The small pieces
of wheat bran and spinach are
difficult to cut.
• Pastas can be either dried or frozen
for future use. To dry, lay strands of
pasta in a single layer on a towel
or drying rack, and completely air
dry. Store dried pasta in an airtight
container. To freeze, let pasta air
dry for one hour before freezing in
an airtight container. It is not
necessary to separate strands of
pasta before freezing, just dust
with flour and form into “nests.”

feed dough through rollers again.
Continue to increase roller setting
until desired dough thickness is
reached. See “Suggested Roller
Settings” to determine the correct
thickness for each type of pasta.
5. To make angel
hair or thick
egg noodles,
exchange Pasta
Sheet Roller

attachment. Feed flattened sheets
of dough through cutter. Cut pasta
can be used immediately or frozen
or dried for later use. See “Tips for
Perfect Pasta” for information on
freezing and drying.
To Use:
1. Prepare pasta dough (see “Tips
for Perfect Pasta.”) Cut dough into
pieces about 3⁄8 inch (1cm) thick.
Flatten each piece slightly.

Care and Cleaning
NOTE: Never wash or immerse
attachments in water or other liquid.
Never wash in dishwasher.
To clean Pasta Sheet Roller and Cutter
attachments, let parts air dry for one
hour and then remove any dried
dough using the Cleaning Brush. If
dried dough cannot be removed, try
hand-tapping the attachment. A
toothpick can be used if necessary.
Never use a knife or other sharp
object to remove excess dough. Polish
with a soft, dry cloth and store
attachment pieces in a dry place at
room temperature.
NOTE: Do not run a dishtowel or any
other cloth through the rollers to
clean them. Do not insert objects such
as knives, screwdrivers, etc., to clean
the unit.
Maintenance
Clean properly after use as described
above. We recommend using a light
mineral oil to lubricate the gears
periodically. Add a drop of mineral oil
to each of the far corners of the
rollers and/or cutters to lubricate the
gears (4 locations). This can be done
annually or after 50 uses.
