How to Use the Imperia Pasta Machine
Using the Imperia pasta machine
So the first step is to make our fresh pasta and then we’ll roll it out. Not as thick as normal, just even half a centimeter is fine. And then what we do is we use the cutters provided with the machine just to cut the right width of the pasta. So we’ll just cut this -- you can see I've already cut one just like so that we have the right width of the pasta. Now, we’re just going to pop out through the machine to thin it.
Step two is we’re just going to put this in the machine. You have the setting here on the right of the machine or your left, which determines the width between the roll. This is the high setting number four. It’s about half a centimeter. So, you should be able to just about fit it in like this. And simply just roll and roll until the pasta squeezes through. So this is on the very widest setting which is setting number four.
As you can see, this pasta is going through. It’s getting a little bit thinner. And then we just use the different settings to gradually bring in the rolls a little bit closer and gradually make the pasta thinner. If I can get this in, this basically saves you a good five or even 10 minutes of rolling the pasta with a rolling pin. This way, you just need to roll it for a couple of minutes to get it this thickness and we’ll carry on doing this. Just checking this after each time and so we get a very thinnest pasta which I’ve just done beforehand, this, which is great making tagliatelle very, very thin and long pasta sauce. Great!
As you can see for this second step, we just added this attachment which makes time tagliatelle here and spaghetti, on this attachment here. Now basically, this attachment is again heavy stainless steel and it comes with the machine, so you get these options by default. Let’s see if I can just reattach this. Then our handle that we’ve just attached into the -- of the tagliatelle section here or the spaghetti.
So let’s go for some tagliatelle. We take our previously flattened pasta, here we go. And again, the process is very similar which is run that through here. Hopefully, we can get it in. There we go. Just roll this through -- exactly the same way. And if you could see in the back, you don’t believe how easy this is. Bear with me. We could cut out huge line of pasta here. You’re going to love it when you see what comes at the back of this.
Very sturdy, we fixed it to the top of the whole machine so there’s no wobble really and absolutely the business. And then check out what we get at the back here. Look at this. Serious fresh, ultra thin tagliatelle and the spaghetti, we’re going to use this. It’s just as good. It's super thin.
