It has to be useful, but can also look cool

Pasta machine from Marcato

The machine

Without it, (almost) nothing works. Whether you're a beginner or a complete pro, the pasta machine is always at your side, so treat it well and it will give you pleasure for a long time.

Pasta board from PizzaPastaBros

The board

Mostly underestimated but indispensable for good pasta: the wooden pasta board. Pasta dough does not like cold surfaces (such as chrome steel or marble); a "warm surface" made of wood is much better. Authentic Italian pasta has been prepared this way for generations.

You can buy the pasta board in our shop:

Pasta pot from Krüger

The pot

Welches ist der richtige Topf für Pasta? Damit habe ich mich lange gar nicht beschäftigt, bis ich den Tipp bekommen habe, einen Spargeltopf zu verwenden. Ungläubig machte ich damit die ersten Versuche und der Spargeltopf hat mich schliesslich überzeugt. Er ist das ideale Werkzeug, gerade, wenn man mehrere unterschiedliche Pastavariationen servieren will oder für eine grössere Personenzahl kocht. Der clue dabei ist, das Wasser nicht abzuschütten, sondern nur aufzufüllen und gleich den nächsten batch Pasta zu kochen.

Dough scraper from Lehrmann

The scraper

The perfect tool for working and processing your dough. It helps you from the first minute of kneading, when you use it to scrape flour back into the kneading mass or to scrape sticky dough residues off the pasta board. But it's also there when you want to separate a unit from the dough for the next pasta rolling cycle.
