Imperia Pasta Machine

by Rose

If you want to make home made pasta you need Imperia Pasta Factory machine. It's the ultimate pasta maker, with everything you need for pasta making in one box

The Imperia Pasta Machine by Cucina Pro, which is made in Italy, is pretty much all you need to produce fresh pasta at home.

This machine was first produced in 1932 and they've kept improving it and it has remained popular ever since.

Cucina Pro are now selling the Imperia together with everything else you need to make pasta, all in one box, so you have your very own "pasta factory" in your kitchen.

This page reviews this pasta set and explains what you get in it.

Here is what you get in this set:

* The Imperia Pasta Machine. This is the main gadget made from chrome plated steel. It comes with a secure "C" clamp allowing you to fix it to the table where you are making pasta, and has a detachable rotating handle. It has six different settings for thickness, so you can make a quarter inch wide fetuccine for example, or tagliatelli or lasagna sheets.

* An attachment for making and filling ravioli

* An attachment for making macaroni and spaghetti

* Two wooden scoops

* One pasta roller

* One Pasta brush

* Instruction booklet with recipes

It has always been possible to buy additional attachments for your Imperia, but this set really includes all a modern pasta maker would need in a single box, and they are happy to gift wrap the box as well.

I've found the Imperia easier to use than other pasta machines on the market. One thing I like about it is how solidly made it is - it feels indestructible and I'm pretty sure it will last me a lifetime. It's easy to clean too - all you need to do is wipe it down after you have finished making your pasta (don't put it in water as you will rust the cutters).

My tip for getting the best out of this machine: let the pasta sheet dry a little and dust it with flour before you put it through the cutters. It goes through much easier and doesn't stick.
