In Stock and Ready to Ship
EcoFriendly Eppicotispai chitarra (pronounced key-tahr-rah) is a natural wood pasta maker invented in Chieti, in the Abruzzo region in central Italy, around the 1800’s. Meaning guitar, a chitarra looks like a double-sided harp with strings set close on one side and farther on the other.

Simply use a rolling pin to flatten and press the dough through the wires. In the center is a slanted board designed to allow the cut pasta to slide off easily. Two sides are included, one for angel hair (about 3mm) and another for fettuccini (5mm). 3½" h x 19" l x 8½" w. Hand wash. Made in Italy.

Pleasantly surprised
Not sure why there were no reviews here when other websites had great ones for this same product, I decided to give it a try. I took a chance that since this one is made in Italy, it had to be the real deal if not better than the American made one. I also ordered a dowel rolling pin to use with it. It arrived in the mail today and much to my surprise it also had a perfectly sized rolling pin in the box with it! Sure would have been nice if the item description displayed that information, but I'm not complaining as I'll find a use for my dowel one. The strings do come a bit loose as that is the proper storage method to lengthen the life of the chitarra, or so I've read. It only takes a few seconds to tighten them when putting into operation. I have read reviews on other versions how the wood is rough and causes splinters. I have none of those issues with mine. It seems to be well constructed and with proper use and care it should last for quite a while. Now I just need to make some pasta dough and see how well it works.
