The top section usually is adjustable - pull the whole upper basket right out (assuming its a front loading type not a drawer) and there should be a second set of wheels. feed those into th track instead. You wont be able to put large glasses etc in the upper tray but should have enough for your bowls...

Can you cook pasta in the microwave?


I love cooking pasta in my microwave as I don't have to wait for the water to come to the boil.

Put your pasta in a large bowl with lots of water and season. I cook my pasta for around 10 minutes and stir it half way through. Test one piece and if you want to cook it for longer just bung it back in.

Can you cook noodles in a microwave? If so, how long do you cook them for?


yes you can cook noodles in the microwave. Make sure you use a really big bowl and plenty of water. Cook the noodles for 3-6 minutes but make sure you use hot pads or gloves to remove the bowl as it will be boiling hot and you can really hurt yourself.

What is a colander?


A colander looks like a bowl with little holes in it. It is used to drain food like pasta. The pasta will stay inside the bowl and the water will drain out. The collander is also known as a kitchen sieve.

CPSC, Creative Technologies Corp. Announce Recall to Replace Lids on Pasta Machines

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Creative Technologies Corp. of Brooklyn, N.Y., is voluntarily recalling about 50,000 pasta machines to replace some of their lids. When the safety cutoff switch on the lid does not activate, consumers' fingers can be severely injured if their hand is placed into the mixing bowl.

CPSC and Creative Technologies are aware of 11 incidents of the machine unexpectedly turning on, resulting in nine injuries including cut, crushed and severed fingers.

The lid replacement program involves the Takka Pasta and Dough machine (model X1000), and the Pasta Express machines (models X2000, X3000 and X4000). Only pasta machines that have serial numbers up to 78209 are subject to this replacement program. The model and serial numbers are located on a label on the bottom of the machine. "Pasta Express TM by CTC" or "Takka Pasta and Dough by CTC" is on the front of the machine. The pasta machines are beige or white. Some machines have chrome-plated front panels. Through this voluntary recall, Creative Technologies will provide consumers with a replacement lid.

The machines are sold in cardboard boxes identifying the model of the machine. A photograph of the machine is on the front of the box.

Department stores, mail order catalogs and warehouse clubs nationwide sold the pasta machines from 1999 to present for between $90 and $200.

Consumers should stop using the pasta machines immediately and call IHW, Inc. (formerly Creative Technologies) at (718) 492-8400. The company will help consumers determine whether their pasta machine is subject to this replacement program and, if necessary, will provide a free replacement lid.

The machine seems loose and it rocks. Also, the pasta attachment (meat grinder) will not lock in. Can I adjust where the grind worm goes in?


Hello Darlenescott,

About the machine rocks, the whole machine rocks or just the Head? If it is just the Head you may want to check to see if the set screw that holds the lock in place is still there or lose. The scress is located on the right side of the machine if you are looking straight at it in use. It is at the bottom of the head close to where the head attaches to the pedistool. If it is missing post back to this discussion and I will find the part # and place that you can purchase the part.

The second issue, the pasta attachment is not locking in properly. There is no way to ajust how the pasta attachment fits. I would try and return the attachment and exchange it for another as they are mass produced and may not have got the shaft down to the proper tolerances to fit.

I hope this helped and please post any other questions you have to this thread.

Thank you for choosinf FIxYa for your solution.

I bought pasta maker and i awnt to know how to use it


If you're talking about the type that makes macaroni and such, just put the mix into the bowl according to package instructions and mix until well blended. Reverse to make pasta. A little too thin consistency is better than too thick.

This sounds like an issue of beater to bowl adjustment, which can come out of alignment naturally over time and with use of the machine.

If the flat beater is striking the bottom of your bowl, this may cause the locking mechanism to loosen and may cause the mixing head to "bounce" during use.

Your Use and Care Guide will cover the "beater to bowl adjustment," which you can do at home in a few minutes with a flathead screwdriver.
