diaper world factory shop macaroni making machine:The best pasta makers for delicious homemade dinners

  Life without the occasional steaming bowl of fresh pasta may not be worth living, and bragging rights are never more deserved than when you’ve rolled out the dough yourself. Plus, it tastes better than the dried stuff.

  Fancy mastering the ultimate Tuscan pappardelle, perfectly formed ravioli or classic linguine shape? The secret, in part, is to do with achieving the perfect consistency for the dough itself, not too crumbly, not too wet. If you want to score high on presentation, Stephen Harris recommends using eggs with yellower yolks, such as Burford Browns, in his recipe for home-made pasta with fresh truffle). Eggs, flour and a touch of salt are all you really need to get started, but you can also experiment with different flours: think chickpea, green pea or red lentil for a healthy kick.

  And while you can give it a good go with a humble rolling pin, a pasta machine with a variety of thickness settings and different shape cutters will help you to achieve the best results. Classic metal, manual pasta machines are very reliable usually feature a crank and work well for spaghetti and flat dough, from which you can craft ravioli – or simply use as lasagne sheets. You may need to buy additional blades for different kinds of pasta. However, you’ll need to clean them thoroughly and then dry them out completely to keep them hygienic without letting them go rusty.

  Electric pasta makers can make it easier to form more complex pasta shapes such as macaroni, and can be easier to disassemble and clean – but they’re slightly more expensive, and can break more easily than a simple manual contraption.

  Another option, which requires very little effort, is a stand mixer attachment – if you already own a KitchenAid, for example, you can simply purchase the KitchenAid three-piece pasta roller set for flat-sheet pasta, linguine and tagliatelle. Make sure you buy a gorgeous wooden pasta stand, too (£16.99, Amazon).
