      1. How is this product cleaned?
      2. Are the internal parts plastic or metal?
    • The CucinaPro Pasta Fresh 5 is cleaned similar to all pasta making items. Let the ingredients dry on the unit. Use a brush to brush off the left over dough or flour. You may also use canned air to blow out the unit.
      The internal parts are stainless steel.

    • I am seriously thinking about purchasing the CucinaPro Pasta Fresh 5, and would like to know if there is any other way to attach it to my counter other than the clamp, or if there is something you recommend to put on out counter to protect it.
    • No.The manufacturer recommends If you don’t want your counter tops to get marked to use some of the matting that people put in the bottom of the sink. It will anchor the machine down better and help to not mark the counter.

    • we have a cucina pro #s178 and want to make fettuccine how is that done? thanks for the help
    • Pasta is sort of a trial and error business. It can be too dry, too wet, too thick, too thin, or even too much humidity. But you can eat all of your mistakes. It does take some practice, but it's fun. If you put a thin rubber mat on the table before you put your past machine down it will ease the strain on the clamp. The machine will be able to sink in the other mat while you are tightening the clamp.Set your machine to the widest width and form your dough into a roughly rectangle shape. Dust the rollers and dough with a bit of flour and crank it through. You may have to pinch the starting end to get it started in the rollers. Lightly dust the strip with a bit of flour and fold it in half. If the dough strip seems too moist, repeat this process several times, dust with flour, fold and pass through the rollers. The continual running thru the rollers is part of the kneading process and the texture of the dough will change from a rough texture to a smooth one. Roll the other slices of your dough and after they go through this process, let them rest on a floured surface. Set the regulator knob down to the next position and roll the dough through. Repeat this process until you have all the dough to the thickness you desire. Let the dough rest before you cut it . You can cut your sheets to the length that you want your pasta to be. It makes is easier to handle. Move your hand crank to the drive hole of the cutter you will be using, take your pasta sheet and turning the handle slowly, get the strip started in the cutter head. Turn the handle with your left hand and slide your right hand underneath the pasta you are cutting so as to lift it up when you are done with the strip. The pasta can be dried on a towel, a pasta rack or even a broom handle setting on the backs of two chairs. If you dry it on a towel, you will have to keep moving it so as to let the air circulate. Fresh pasta can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about a week, or it can be frozen. You can also take the fresh pasta directly to a boiling pot of water. Fresh pasta cooks quickly compared to dried pasta. The thinner the pasta, the faster it cooks. If your pasta is not dried, start testing it within minutes of putting it in the water.

I failed to add that the only downside to this item is that rather than a suction bottom to keep it still on the counter (like those old-time pencil sharpeners) is that the C-clamp may or may not be the right size to fit onto the surface you want to attach this item. Or, your counter may be made of a delicate stone to which you aren't sure you want to affix any clamp even with the least of pressure. Perhaps the question section to your left, if asked, can offer some alternative suggestions for that issue. (Posted on 9/28/12)

I've had this hand cranked roller and spaghetti/fettuccine cutter (not the other cutters) for some time. It takes practice to learn how to get the noodle or pasta dough to the proper level of mixing & amount moisture for the dough to work well through this manual machine. After gaining a feel for it, then it's patience, not putting too much dough in at once & even-paced cranking. For myself, a right-handed person, I learned to feed with my left, roll with my right then reach up to catch with my left. Once I got the hang of it, boy, what a joy. For years I made my grandmother's homemade egg noodles mixing, rolling & cutting by hand. This unit cut my time in about 1/4th at least & 10x reduced the frustration and muscle. Plus I can get a much thinner noodle, more uniformly cut. An electric pasta roller & cutting set might be nicer for the experienced dough maker and I've been tempted to add one to my Kitchenaid mixer. However, I don't make these recipes more than for special occasions, so I'm more than content sticking with this method.

It does take some getting used to the idea that you don't wash these with soap and water as you do for almost 99.9% of everything else. But it's easy to see how you could make gooie dough if you did get it wet & certainly so if immersed in water. The residue really does brush out or will dry and brush out. If I don't think I was completely successful cleaning, the next time I use it, I run a small amount through the parts I'm going to use. I've done that once. No biggie at all.

If you want to begin making these types of food in your own kitchen, I recommend this set because you have more control over the process, especially the speed the dough goes through the roller & cutter. (Plus this set offers a good variety of noodle types) You can set up at a comfortable height on you counter or island top. Plus, I've found that there's benefit in its portability since I've taken it to my daughters' to prepare the noodles whereas I wouldn't have taken the electric Kitchenaid, asking to use her machine & taking up more space during meal preparation.

(As for bending, I can see where a little man-handling might cause the lip on which the cutters are attached could occur. Patience is required, as it is for many great recipes, various techniques & becoming adept with new appliances, especially manually operated ones. If this was made any heavier, not only would it be more expensive, but also heavy and could not as delicately cut.) (Posted on 9/28/12)

I bought my wife a CucinaPro for Christmas and I love the pasta she is making. It works well and is easy to use. Fresh pasta is a thousand times better that that hard stuff you buy. Love it. (Posted on 1/7/12)

This item is not very well built. The gears don't work well. It was very hard to turn. The pasta stuck to the wheels and was impossible to clean. When we put the other pasta maker attachments on they bent and made it impossible to use them ever again. I would not recommend this to anyone. We used it once and ended up throwing it out because it was broken and didn't work well to begin with. (Posted on 5/12/11)
