You've probably seen the photos and videos on our socials, but making your own pasta is not just for the chef or the old Italian lady. You too can become a Pasta Pro, but the right tools will make it a lot easier. Together with Taglia Pasta, we compiled a list to make your homemade pasta a success!
Demetra® Pasta Machine
Make your own smooth and striped cavatelli, orecchiette and Sardinian gnocchetti with this manual pasta machine.
When making homemade fresh pasta, a manual press should not be missing. Don't forget to order the brass dies with the desired shapes, they are often not included.
Use a pasta cutter to cut your tortellini, ravioli, cappelletti and tortelloni into the desired shape. Pasta cutters come in different shapes and qualities.
A professional pastry board is perfect for rolling out dough with a rolling pin and for preparing fresh home-made egg pasta. They often have a wooden stop strip along the entire length of the board for stability.
Of course, the rolling pin cannot be missing from this list. For making pasta, they are available in various thicknesses, lengths and even with patterns.
The most tasty Spaghetti can be prepared with the “Chitarra” (Guitar), a typical culinary tool typical of Abruzzo and of the Adriatic regions of central and southern Italy. This pasta guitar is an instrument made with beech wood and stainless steel strings. It gives the pasta a square shape of about 2 mm per side and a porous consistency, that allows the sauces to adhere better.
To cut the ravioli and seal the filling, we use a Brass Stamp. These are available as standard in square, round or triangular shapes.
4-Wheel Pasta Cutter
Ideal for cutting tortellini, tortelloni and ravioli. The 4-wheel Pasta cutter is adjustable in different widths.
Pasta Drying Rack
For quick drying of your pasta, use a pasta drying rack. Suitable for tagliatelle, tagliolini, pappardelle and other long pasta.
Gnocchi & Garganelli Board
With this wooden board you can make fresh homemade Gnocchi. Most of these boards also come with a narrow rolling pin for making Garganelli.
