Re: Pasta machine, which one should we choose?

Actually think I will need to consider using the kitchenaid for pasta making as I have a compact kitchen and not much bench space so that might work better for me.

Re: Pasta machine, which one should we choose?

I'm looking forward to my first pasta machine. Hope I find one, probably in a tag sale somewhere. Glad I know some brand names now.

Buy one - we did and havnt looked back.

We make the dough in the food processor - quick 30 second spin, and only 2 mins of kneeding.... then we roll enough pasta to freeze, about 6 meals - be sure to use a "dont be scared amount" onto the cut pasta before chucking into the freezer.

Re: Pasta machine, which one should we choose?

I have the imperia too, and   I am happy with it.
I make pasta with (Demeter) whole wheat  1 egg to circa 90g wheat --- hmmmmmmmm --- no problems !!

First mix with Magimix - then short kneading  -- than imperia -- than up into boiling water.....

Look out for the next pasta (and tiramisu for dessert! tongue  ) smile

Hi Joy
Was wondering if you have had any more pasta making adventures? Or tiramisu? Have you used the recipes I emailed you? Or has it been too hot in Melbourne? I miss Melbourne when it is winter here in London.

Re: Pasta machine, which one should we choose?

Thankyou for thinking of me Jutta.
I have made pasta a couple of times. My daughter did it first, she had made it at school and did it successfully with absolutely no fuss!.  mrgreen
Then I did it, reading the instructions you sent, reading the leaflet that came with it, re reading both of them. Both times it worked well, and the lovely feeling is that generally the machine makes it easier to make pasta than buy it!
The info you gave me was helpful, but  the very best tip was to start with the eggs/yolks and then add flour until it comes together.
I also put it through one more notch of the pasta machine to make it that bit thinner. clap
Rose also made such a lovely lasagna, I am keen to do that. It is such a relief that I don't have to cook the sheets when it is just made!
The tiramisu recipe is still waiting patiently for me to get around to it.... hmm

Re: Pasta machine, which one should we choose?

If you really want authentic Italian pasta, learn to do it by hand. You do not need a machine. Remember Jamie's pasta rolling competition that he lost, no machines there, just a rolling pin.

Re: Pasta machine, which one should we choose?

That's true, Gary.  I have used the rolling pin several times instead of the machine but there is a certain technique.  With a machine, there's no technique and it goes quicker.
