Tasty, cont'd Review by Guest
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)
Yrs of use Review by Guest
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)
Best Pasta! Review by Guest
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)
Junk Review by Guest
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)
