Description

ECO-FRIENDLY 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.

Once you make your own pasta, you cannot go back to store bought. This pasta maker will enable the process to go much faster.

Love homemade pasta. Cutting dimension was the right size

Does this roll out the dough, or just cut it

Would I have to roll the dough out before using this? I'm assuming I would, but just thought I'd ask a silly question

Best Answer: Yes, the dough must be rolled first

does anyone have a good recipe for the dough? Maybe even a Utube showing the steps on how to make the dough and then how to use this Chitarra Pasta Maker?
Thank you!
