Instructions on How to Use:
You first need to mix up your ingredients for the dough, of course. Make sure that the dough is not so moist that it will stick to your pasta maker. Also, make sure that the dough is not too dry, or it will fall apart when it comes out. Mother thing that makes it easier when using this pasta maker is to have two people working it. One will need to hold on to the dough and feed it in while another turns the crank to make sure that the dough does not try to bunch up and get clumpy. Do this a little at a time so that you can straighten the dough as it comes out so that there is not just a big lump of clay at the end of the process. All in all, it is a very simple process even though it is a bit easier with two people working together.
