Before Using for the First Time:
Remove all packaging materials. Clean the Pasta Maker with a dry cloth to remove
excess oil. The spaghetti and fettucini cutters may require you to feed some pasta
dough through them to remove all of the oil. This “dirty” pasta should be discarded
and NOT consumed.
1. Make your pasta dough by following a favorite recipe (or trying ours, found on
page 9).
2. Plug the power cord into an electrical outlet.
3. Adjust the roller to the widest setting (1 is the widest; 9 is the narrowest). To
adjust the width, pull Flat Roller Thickness Dial (6) out and turn to the desired
setting. The knob will click and lock into place.
4. The motor has 2 speed settings: Low and High
5. When switched ON, the Flat Roller (5) and both
cutters will operate at the same time. The Plastic
Safety Covers (1) are designed to cover the rollers
that aren’t being used at the time. Slide the 2 Plastic
Safety Covers (1) over the Spaghetti (3) and Fettucini (4)
6. Feed the dough through the roller. Once the dough has passed through, adjust
the roller to the next narrowest setting and feed the dough through again.
Repeat this process until the desired pasta thickness has been reached.
7. When you are ready to use either the Fettucini (4) or Spaghetti Cutter (3), slide
the corresponding Plastic Safety Cover (1) over the roller and the cutter not being used and pass the flat pasta through the cutter.
• When feeding dough through the roller, adjust the Flat Roller Thickness Dial (6)
from the widest setting to the narrowest.
• After adjusting the width of the roller, turn on at your preferred speed. When you
first use the Pasta Maker, we recommend beginning with “LOW”.
IMPORTANT: When you want to adjust the thickness of the rollers, ALWAYS switch
the Pasta Maker to off “O” first. Do NOT adjust the width of the rollers while the Pasta Maker is running as this will damage the gear
• Do NOT run the Pasta Maker continuously for longer than 15 minutes in order to
protect the motor. After 15 minutes of continuous use, we advise to turning the
Pasta Maker off “O” and allowing it to rest for 15 minutes before using again.

Do NOT use harsh or abrasive cleaners
Do NOT immerse in water or place in a dishwasher
It is important that the rollers remain dry so that they do not clog with flour or so
that they will not rust.
1. To clean the Pasta Maker, first remove the plug from the electrical outlet.
2. Remove excess dough from the rollers. If you have a small piece of dough
leftover, pass it through the rollers so that any excess dough sticks to it.
3. Wipe the rollers with a dry cloth or a brush. Dry thoroughly before reusing.
4. To clean the exterior of the maker, wipe the outside surface with a damp cloth
and polish dry. Do NOT use harsh or abrasive cleaners as they may scratch
the body of the maker.
WARNING: Do NOT submerge the Pasta Maker, power cord or plug in water or
any other liquid. Do NOT wash in a dishwasher.
• Making perfect pasta is an art that will take time to perfect. Do not expect
perfect results the first time, with practice you should get there.
Hints for Mixing Dough:
• Mix all of the dry ingredients together and pour into a heap. Make a well in the
center with your fingers.
• Mix all of the wet ingredients together in a bowl, then pour into the well of dry
• Using a fork, gradually combine the dry ingredients from inside the well with the
wet ingredients until the wet ingredients are no longer runny. Be careful not to
break the wall of dry ingredients or the wet mixture will escape.
• Quickly use both hands to mix in the remaining dry ingredients over the wet
mixture so that it is completely covered.
• Begin working the dough with your hands until all of the dry ingredient mixture is
combined with the wet mixture. The dough should feel moist but not sticky. If it is
sticky, slowly add more flour until you have the right consistency.
• Continue kneading the dough until it is uniform and smooth.
• Cover the dough and allow it to rest for 20–30 minutes.
Hints for Rolling Dough:
It is preferrable to roll the dough before putting it through the Pasta Maker. This
allows the dough to be stretched rather than compressed through the rollers of the
Pasta Maker. It will also create more absorbent pasta.
Basic Pasta Dough
2/3 cup fine Semolina flour
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. hot water
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
2 large eggs
• Uncover the dough and knead again for about a minute so that the moisture that
has collected on the surface is worked back into the dough.
• Flatten the dough a little bit with your hands to form a round disk and place it on
your work surface.
• Roll the dough out until it is approximately 1/4" thick. You may need to fold the
pasta 5–10 times, adding flour in the middle. This is a very important key to
creating perfect pasta.
• Cut the dough into pieces that will fit through the width of the Pasta Maker (5 1/2").
With the rollers at the widest setting, feed the dough through. Hold the dough as it
comes through, but do NOT pull or stretch the dough.
• Once all of the dough has been fed throught the Pasta Maker one time, reduce the
width of the rollers by 1 notch and run the dough pieces through the Pasta Maker
• Continue to reduce the width of the rollers 1 notch at a time. Run all of the pieces
through the Pasta Maker until you have reached the narrowest roller setting. Lay
the pieces out on a dry tea towel or table cloth.
For lasagna sheets, cut the rolled dough into 8" strips (use a knife or pair of
For fettucini or spaghetti, cut the rolled pieces to 12" lengths (with a knife or pair of
scissors) and pass them through the cutters.
NOTE: If the cutters will not cut, this means the dough is too soft. If this
happens, you should pass the dough through the smooth rollers after
adding some flour to the mixture.
If the dough is too dry and cannot be cut by the rollers, add a little water to
the mixture and pass through the smooth rollers.
Mix the eggs, water and oil in a bowl with a whisk until well blended.
1. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, Semolina flour and salt.
2. Combine the wet and dry ingredients (we recommend using the hints on
page 7 of this manual.
3. Follow the instructions and hints on the previous page to roll the dough to the
desired thickness with the Pasta Maker.
