How to prepare pasta sheets with the pasta machine

Set the adjustment knob of the pasta machine to 0 and feed a ball of dough through the rollers, turning the crank clockwise.
Lightly dust both sides of the pasta sheet with flour and fold it in half. Feed the pasta sheet through the smooth rollers again, for 5-6 times until the pasta sheet is long and regular in shape.


Set the adjustment knob to 1 and pass the pasta sheet through just once; then, set the adjustment knob to 2 and pass the pasta sheet through once more; then, set the adjustment knob to 3, and so on until you reach the desired thickness.

Cut the pasta sheet with Pastabike

Choosing the position of the wheels

You can fit Pastabike with 1 or all 9 wheels, depending on the cut you want. Change the position or remove a wheel by opening the handle, pressing slightly on both lower ends. Remove the central rod and pull out or change the position of the wheels. Set the rod up between the two ends of the handle and make sure it is inserted correctly.
 

Cutting the pasta sheets

Grip Pastabike firmly with one hand and cut the pasta sheet, being careful to maintain an angle of about 30°. If the cut is not clean, the pasta sheet may be too thick, therefore, we recommend rolling the wheel several times.
