Basic tool: Pasta Roller

Hej guys! After a long long hiatus, I’m finally back and updating this space with more pasta goodness (: It’s actually one of my goals in 2018 so let’s see how well i fare this year 😉

I’m super excited to share with you the pasta maker which I purchased recently. After reading the reviews, I decided to go with the Imperia Pasta maker instead of the Kenwood/Kitchenaid automated pasta maker. So on Saturday, we drove to Sia Huat because the pricing was one of the cheapest in town~

A set would cost you about $100 – $120 tops and it comes with the following:

  • Pasta Roller with easy lock adjustment dial (for you to adjust to the required thickness)
  • Handle Attachment
  • Angel hair and Fetucini pasta cutter
  • User Guide

The machine is made from heavy duty steel so it’s pretty hardy and will not rust if you clean it with a wet cloth. That being said, it is definitely a no no to wash your machine under running water!

And this is how it looks after everything has been assembled! The top attachment is actually the pasta cutter. Imperia has a wide range of pasta cutters available so you can just collect them and use whichever is appropriate for the pasta you are cooking!

What I really love about this machine is that it does not take up a lot of storage space like the kenwood / kitchenaid machines and the manual rolling of the handle attachment allows me to handle the dough at my own pace.

I’m so excited to start making a batch of pasta when I finally find some spare time in the coming weeks! And, hopefully, I would have managed to source for Durum flour by then.

Have a blessed weekend y’all!
