Hand-Made Pasta

Hand Pasta Machine

We use the handmade pasta machine that my grandma loves to use when cooking pasta, but you can use the Heavy Duty Pasta Maker Machine available on Amazon.

Pasta Drying Rack

After cutting the pasta using the pasta machine, this drying rack is used to dry and prepare the pasta. A Pasta Drying Rack is a kitchen tool that will come in handy when making handmade pasta.

Thin Rolling Pin

A simple rolling pin with tapered ends will help you achieve the perfect pasta.

Also great for baking!


Gnocchi Board

This is what you use to give a bit of style to your gnocchi. Those little lines will bring elegance and flair to your Italian delicacy.

Potato Ricer

This kitchen tool makes the boiled potatoes really smashed and soft. You can also use it for tomatoes, beans, and more.

This tool makes sure that you clean your mushrooms and vegetables without peeling away and discarding skins and their vital nutrients.

A great oven safe nonstick set from Bialetti. Handwashing your pots and pans is much easier.
