90% of the time this will solve the tearing problem: . After rolling dough through lowest setting to knead 5 times: Take a piece the size of a large egg and pass it through setting 1, now without folding, pass the flattened piece through setting 2, feeding it through the rollers as you would see a sheet of paper pass through a printer, repeat this process at settings 3 and then 4 and then 5 etc. until you get to desired thinness. Most often the mistake is in thinking that the dough need only to be passed through the desired setting, but when you think about it when hand rolling you would pass the roller over the entire piece of dough gradually thinning it with each pass, if you tried to roll it in one pass to desired thickness it would rip also. Hope this helps, it took literally months of internet searches and failed attempts for me to discover this.

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.

Is ravioli hard to make?

Ravioli isn't actually that hard to make but it is quite time consuming. You need to make the ravioli dough and then leave it to rest. Then you prepare the ravioli filling and shape them. The cooking of them is the easy part as they are cooked in minutes.

Here is a link to a really good tutorial with pictures.

I bought the bread maker last night and it doesn't seem to mix the dough. I have spots of flour and salt in the dough. It seems like there is a paddle or something that is missing. Do you know if I am...

There is supposed to be a removable small paddle in bottom of pan.
If it's not there, you will not get dough at all. Just wet flour.
If paddle is there, but you have half way dough.. AND you followed directions exactly, machine has a problem. Take it back for refund or exchange.

Are there instructions for the Norpro ravioli attachment? I have a Norpro two piece set attachment for my Norpro pasta maker. It came with no instructions whatsoever. Are there any printed instructions...

Just bought one,so you're in luck lol.
Roll pasta dough until thin and translucent.
Dust lightly with flour.
Cut dough into four rectangular strips,each about 12 inches by 4 inches.
Place on strip of dough over the frame.(the metal part)
Press dough into frame with the indented tray.(plastic piece)
Remove the indented tray.
Fill pouches as desired.
Place a second strip of dough over the strip with the filling in it and press strips together with your fingers.
With a rolling pin,roll across the dough covered frame,gently at first and then increase pressure until the zig zag edges of the frame are visible through the pasta. The ravioli is now sealed. Remove excess dough and re-roll.
Remove ravioli from frame by by tapping it on counter.

I find that these instructions aren't the best. They should tell you to lightly flour the frame before using or else it's hard to remove the ravioli. I also find that tapping it makes no difference...I always have to push them out through the bottom.
Good luck and enjoy!

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 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!
