Thickness of pasta using Kitchen Aid pasta machine
Hi, I have a Kitchen Aid pasta machine and would like to know at what number I should be turning the knob to for fettuni, lasagna, ravioli and angel hair spaghetti.
I have "fluked" it for spaghetti at number 3. I would appreciate your help.
Hi Keith. Am I right in thinking you are using the pasta roller attachment for the big KitchenAid stand mixer?
If so, then you're in luck!
Here is what KitchenAid recommends re: the pasta thickness settings you mention:
1 or 2: Kneading and thinning dough
3: Thick “kluski”-type egg noodles
4: Egg noodles
4 or 5: Lasagna noodles, fettuccine, spaghetti, and ravioli
6 or 7: Tortellini, thin fettuccine, and linguine fini
7 or 8: Very thin “angel-hair”- type pasta/capellini or very fine linguine
And for your reference, click this page, which is the user manual that includes this info (it's on page 8). Or right-click this link and choose 'save target/link as' to save this PDF onto your computer.
Hope that answers your Q. Good cookin' sir!
