In nearly every situation, the best way to clean a pasta maker and all its attachments is to simply use a dry or barely damp cloth to wipe all the surfaces. You do not need to use a lot of soap or water and, in fact, you should try not to. Never try to run a cloth through a pasta machine.
Considering this, how do you clean a stainless steel pasta maker?
Parts made of stainless steel, copper, brass, bronze, or aluminum should be hand-washed. Use dish soap, warm water, and a soft, clean cloth to quickly wipe down the parts and then dry them off thoroughly right after. Keeping the parts of the machine dry is important!
In this way, how do you get rust off a pasta machine?
Sprinkle baking soda over the rusty areas of the pasta cutter. Let the baking soda remain on the surface for 30 minutes. Wet a scrub brush with water and scrub the rusted areas of the pasta cutter until no rust remains on the surface. Wash the pasta cutter and dry it with a clean cloth.
Can I wash my pasta machine?
Most pasta machines are made of metal and have small working parts that you cannot easily wash or rinse. These machines will rust if you get water in them, as it is almost impossible to remove all of the water afterward.
Most of the time, if your dough sticks to your pasta maker, it is because the dough is too wet. Your dough should not be able to stick to your hands. If your dough is too wet, add more flour to it one teaspoon at a time until you are satisfied with the consistency.
After cleaning, start lubricating pasta maker. Use mineral oil for lubricating pasta maker. Look for the cutting rollers inside the pasta maker, locate their ends and drop 2-3 drops of oil on both the ends. After lubricating pasta maker, reassemble the parts.
Lubricate your pasta roller:
We recommend using light mineral oil to lubricate the gears periodically. Add a drop of mineral oil to each of the far corners of the rollers and/or cutters to lubricate the gears (4 locations). This can be done annually or after 50 uses.
