Included in your pack is the Maccheroni Rigati die.
Each screen is bronze and is supplied with a storage case. The screens have a rough surface allowing the pasta to collect more sauce which creates a fuller flavour.
The following screens are available from Kenwood spares via www.4kenwood.co.uk
001 Maccheroni Rigati - the cylindrical shape and the grooves are perfect for strong sauces based on meat.
002 Bigoli – for pasta in the form of a long and thick tube.
003 Casarecce - a narrow, twisted rolled tube – often used with pesto or meat sauces.
004 Maccheroni – smooth Macaroni, usually cut into short tubes. Add cheese sauce for a family favourite.
005 Spaccatelli – cut mid length, this absorbs sauces perfectly and is often used with tomato based dishes.

007 Pappardelle – broad flat ribbons of pasta, perfect for rich, heavy sauces and hearty warming meals in the winter.
