Popular FAQ's

  • How do I clean my Meat Grinder?

    Loosen the ring nut manually or with the spanner and dismantle. Wash all the parts in hot soapy water, then dry. Don’t wash any part in the dishwasher. Never use a soda solution. Re-assemble. Wipe the screens with vegetable oil, then wrap in greaseproof paper to prevent discolouring/rusting. Place the mincer in the storage box and cover with the tray. You can pull the lid off the pusher and store the sausage and kebbe attachments inside.

  • How do I clean my Pasta Maker attachment?

    Loosen the ring nut manually or with the spanner and dismantle. Use the cleaning tool to remove all dough. Allow the dough to dry in the screens before using the cleaning tool. Wash in hot, soapy water or on the top rack of your dishwasher

  • How do I clean my Roto Food Cutter?

    Dismantle the attachment. Wash all parts in hot soapy water, then dry. Do not wash in a dishwasher.

  • How long can I keep pasta made by my Pasta Maker before cooking it?

    Cook macaroni and rigatoni within 4 hours. Otherwise they become brittle and snap.

  • I have never made sausages in my Meat Grinder before. What tips can you give?

    Ask your butcher for sausage skin. Use pig/hog skin on the large nozzle and sheep/lamb skin on the small nozzle. Or, instead of using skin, roll the extruded sausages in breadcrumbs or seasoned flour before cooking. If you’re using skin, soak it in cold water for 30 minutes first, then open it up with a jet of water. Put your chosen nozzle under a running tap and pull the skin onto the nozzle.

  • The feed tube is blocked on my Meat Grinder or Pasta Maker. How can I remedy this?

    If the feed tube becomes clogged, use the end of the spanner/pusher handle to push the mix onto the scroll. Don’t use anything other than the spanner handle and don’t push too hard. Never let the feed tube fill up.

  • The pasta comes out curly from my Pasta Maker – how can I stop this?

    This is normal. The first batch will come out curly but the second batch will be straighter. You can re-process the first batch.

  • What are the different drums for on my Roto Food Cutter?

  • What is kebbe? I have an attachment for it with my Meat Grinder

    Kebbe is a traditional Middle Eastern dish: deep-fried lamb-and-bulgur wheat parcels with a minced meat filling. It can be made with a Meat Grinder.  

  • What is the difference between the screens on my Meat Grinder?
