First time making pasta

by Ruithie
(UK)

I have recently purchased this Imperia pasta machine. I think it will take a few attempts to get the pasta right.

It kept getting stuck on the roller so I had to remove it and start again. Also I noticed that there is a plastic section beneath the rollers which was broken. I will contact the seller about this.

Does anyone know if the plastic section beneath the rollers serves a purpose? I will try and persevere with the pasta as it did taste very good!

Hi Ruithie and thanks for your post.

In terms of dough getting stuck, this is usually because the dough is still a little too moist.

As for the plastic component you mention, I don't know what you mean here. My machine never included such a part - unless it's simply a packing component designed to hold the parts in place during shipping (sorry if that's patronising!).

Any chance you could send a photo of this? You can add a new post on this same page, and upload a pic with it, or else send directly to me on matt at pasta-recipes-made-easy dot com.

That would help me to advise you and maybe then if required I can also ask Imperia for you!

Cheers,

Matt.
