Instructions of how to use:
The first thing you have to do when making homemade pasta is to mix up the dough. You will need to find a dough recipe for pasta; there are a lot of recipes listed on the internet. Once your dough is made and ready to go, you will need to clamp the Homdox Pasta Maker to a cutting board or counter. Make sure the clamp is secure and not loose before you start. Put the dial on the widest setting, which is normally number 1.
Then divide the dough into four separate pieces, flatten the piece you are using and slowly feed it through your Homdox Pasta Maker. Fold the dough and then repeat the above process about five times. After this you will set the dial to a thinner setting and, without folding it, repeat the process. Each time you put the dough through you can turn the dial to a thinner setting until it is as thin as you like.
The Homdox Pasta Maker is one of the simplest homemade pasta makers to use.

Quick and easy usage coupled with being able to store it while taking up the minimum amount of space. That is what I call a great product!
Some people like their pasta thick while others prefer to have it nice and thin. With the Homdox Pasta Maker, you can be sure to make pasta that will suit everyone, no matter their preference. This pasta maker comes with two sizes in stainless steel cutting blades. One is 2.0mm which is great for Vermicelli, and the other is 4.5mm which is a good size for Fettuccine pasta. However, you do not have to stick with what is the normal size pasta for these dishes. With the Homdox Pasta Maker, you can make your pasta any way that suits your tastes.

The Homdox Pasta Maker also adds another great feature to the many that we have already covered. This pasta maker can cut your pasta dough into nine various thicknesses. The range for the thickness is from 0.5 to 3mm. This is a pretty wide range of sizes for pasta and having all these sizes on hand whenever you need them is great, considering that you would have to go to the store to get the pasta otherwise and they might not even have it in stock. I think this is a great feature to have a pasta maker so that you can choose the size of your pasta depending on who you are cooking for, whether friends, family or just for yourself, and what size pasta is required. So this pasta maker adds convenience and adaptability to all of its already great features.
