Tips for Optimum Pasta
The dough should be evenly kneaded, and slightly moist to form a soft malleable dough. The dough should have the consistency which is not too dry or too moist.

The dough is too dry if it has a powdery, grainy consistency and breaks into small chunks. Add more liquid (water or vegetable juice) by the teaspoon until it has formed a smooth, malleable dough that is not sticking to the sides or the kneading spiral.

The dough is too moist if large lumps of dough remain stuck to the kneading spiral. Add flour by the teaspoon until it has formed a smooth, malleable dough that does not stick to the sides or the kneading spiral.

If you add a little bit of olive oil to the pasta dough, it will slide better through the outlet openings of the pasta attachments.

For the pasta dough, you can use both normal household flour as well as wholegrain flour, gluten free flour, or flour made from durum wheat semolina. Different types of flours will require a different amount of liquids. Reserve some liquid and add it slowly for best results. Document your process so you can repeat it in the future.

Vegetable juices made, for example, from spinach, carrots or tomatoes are ideal for adding color and nutrients to your pasta.

Sprinkle flour on your pasta directly as it emerges from the outlet opening and place it down separated on a smooth floured surface to dry. This will prevent the pasta from sticking together.

Cooking time for fresh pasta is much shorter than for dried pasta from the supermarket; 2-4 minutes is usually sufficient. Thinner pastas, however, may require an even shorter cooking time. We recommend you check the pasta at regular intervals until the pasta is "al dente".

Fresh pasta can be kept for 1-2 days in the fridge and frozen in the freezer for as long as 6 months. To stop the pasta from sticking, you should lay the pasta out to dry for 1-2 hours before you store it in the fridge or freeze it.

I dont have the meaasuring cups for the primo pasta maker. Is there an equivalent measurement for them?


The flour cup is 1 cup. I put in 4 1/4 cups and it filled it. I don't know off the tip of my head on the fluid cup, but 4 eggs and some oil will top it off.

I need the measure ments for the dough and manual


The flour cup is 1 cup. You need two of those.

Here is the basic recipe:

2 cups flour. Slowly add from the fluid cup:

2 eggs
1 tbs oil
fill to top of the cup with water

Or...

4 eggs
1 tbs oil
you won't need water.

Mix for two minutes and the mix should look like small granules. Take some and squeeze. They should stay together like cookie dough. switch to extrude and make the pasta of your dream.

I would add: Dry by hanging or in the oven at 170F, flipping occasionally.

Dough cracks when I insert the top cover into the grid


That is usually a sign of too little moisture. Try adding to or brushing the dough with water prior to pressing.

I have an old vitantonio tortellini maker (model #520) but i have lost the instruction manual


1. Make your favotite pasta dough, roll out thin.
2. Place a sheet of rolled-out pasta dough on the metal plate, press down with the plastic mold to create the ravioli pockets.
3. Fill the pockets with your choice of mixture (cheeses, meats, spinach).
4. Then brush the top of the pasta sheet with egg wash or water and place a second sheet of pasta dough over the first.
5. Then use a rolling pin to press down on the assembled raviolis.
6. The pressure of the rolling pin will adhere the two sheets of pasta together and will cut the raviolis apart along the edges of the metal plate.
7. The result is a dozen perfect homemade raviolis!

I need a manuel for a pinzon pasta maker any ideas


I'm not sure if I can find you a manual,but I do own one similar to it, so I can tell you how to use it.
First make sure it's clamped down securely.
Run your dough through the first setting (1). If you want the past thinner than this,just keep pulling out the knob and adjusting it to the number that coincides with the thickness you want. So...start at the first setting...insert dough...turn the handle to run the dough through. For thinner pasta adjust to the second setting,etc. When it reaches the desired thickness run it through the section that has the grooves. On mine I have to pull the handle out and move it over to the other slot...looks like it's the same deal for your's.
Hope this helps.

Why my dough is tearing when i try to make ravioili?


You have to let the dough rest about 30 min. to 1 hour before passing the pasta in the roller. Also if you put some flour on both side of your pasta for the first passing through the machine it works well.

I want to make ravioli in my pasta maker...


All the models of raviolis makers are not graduate identically...So I have the Kitchenaid ravioli maker and the #1 is the larger and the # 8 is the thiner. For the raviolis the best thickness is the #5 or 6 and all is perfect for me and delicious. Also here is what Kichenaid suggest for the thickness of the dough: If you do not own a KitchenAid Pasta
Sheet Roller, pasta sheets can be prepared
by hand. Pasta sheets should be rolled out
to a thickness of 1/16" (0.156 cm). Hop this help!
