Wellllll....it's HERE!!!! And ladies and gentlemen, this thing is seriously fantastic!
Now, before you all get excited about some fresh pasta, let me set you straight. I don't cook. I suck at it. Yes, I bake, but I don't cook. SOOOOooo....I didn't get the machine to make pasta - I got it to use with CLAY!!! And let me tell you it is SO perfect for working with clay!
This is the machine with the ravioli attachment on it. (Yup! It cuts postage stamps!) Pretty, isn't it? I certainly think so! The handle is removable and you use it for the main press portion of the machine as well as for each of the cutter attachments.
These are the other two cutting attachments, one is for spaghetti sized shreds and the other for fettuccine! These are perfect for creating perfectly even strips of clay to weave or just to use as strips! So cool!
The machine is super easy to use. I simply rolled my clay into a tube and placed it over the slot. I then gently turned the handle while feeding the clay. That's all, folks! It's THAT simple to use this machine! Nothing complicated AT ALL! I love that!
You can easily adjust the size of the slot to accommodate for varying thicknesses of clay.
And, as I mentioned earlier, the ravioli attachment is PERFECT for cutting wonderful postage stamp pieces from the clay! Think of all you could do with these!!!
So....of course, I had to make a couple of fun little things with my new toy!
This fabulous little hanging banner is pressed clay that I stamped into and then coated with Lumiere paint in copper. I put the holes in the clay before baking and then added the wire after it was cured. So simple and so easy with my new CucinaPro Pasta Machine!
I created this one using the same method, only I wiped the paint off with a damp towel so that the copper would hold fast to the crevices. I love this technique! So gorgeous!
So, I have to give a HUGE thanks to CSN Stores (Can you believe they have over TWO HUNDRED stores that you can choose from? Seriously...if you want it...they've probably got it!) for allowing me the opportunity to review the CucinaPro Pasta Fresh 5 Machine! It is fantastic and I am going to get so much use out of this thing!
