How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Place on Flat Surface

    To get started with this device, you'll need to place it on a flat countertop. Alternatively, you might choose to place it on a table instead. Make sure that you position a plate or dish below its spout so that the dough the device produces doesn't end up on your table or counter.

  2. Select Shaping Attachment

    Before you add ingredients to this pasta-maker, you'll have to choose one of the eight pasta-shaping attachments and add it to the device's spout. The attachment you choose will determine the shape of the noodles that come out of the spout.

  3. Add Ingredients

    Once you've added a shaping attachment to your device, you can add ingredients to its transparent inner container, such as flour (or your chosen gluten-free flour alternative) and water or milk. These ingredients must be poured in via the opening at the top of the device. You can also add vegetable juice to color the pasta and give it a slight vegetable flavor or some herbs for extra seasoning. If you're not sure how much of a particular ingredient to add, consult the included recipe book for pasta and dough.

  4. Start up Motor

    Next, use your device's display panel to start up its motor, which will cause the device's inner mixer to evenly mix the dough. Following that, the device will churn noodles out its spout. If left alone, these noodles should fall onto the plate or bowl you've set up beneath the spout. However, you can help the process along by chopping them away from the spout with the included pasta-cutting tool.

  5. Freeze or Cook Dough

    Your pasta-maker will stop churning out noodles once all the dough inside has been used up, and you can then cook the noodles or freeze them so they can be used later. To clean your appliance, detach the transparent container and the shaping attachment you used and then put them in your dishwasher. If you don't have a dishwasher, hand-washing them with dish soap and water is a suitable alternative.

Features

  • Compact Size

    Each Emeril Lagasse Pasta & Beyond appliance isn't much bigger than most toasters and is smaller than most microwaves. As a result, one of these won't take up a great deal of space in your kitchen, even if your kitchen is smaller than average. Nonetheless, each one is capable of making a pound of pasta dough at once.

  • Storage Compartment

    At the bottom front of this appliance, you'll find a pull-out storage compartment that resembles a small drawer. You'll be able to store any of the eight included shaping attachments in this drawer when you're not using them. That way, they'll be unlikely to get misplaced.

  • Two Measuring Cups

    Aside from the aforementioned pasta cutter, two measuring cups are included with each appliance, which means that you won't have to obtain any on your own if you don't already have some. These may come in handy if you're a student or young professional just starting out on your own and you don't own a full range of kitchenware yet.

  • Recipe Book Included

    As alluded to above, you'll receive a recipe book with your Emeril Lagasse Pasta & Beyond. Through this book's recipes, Lagasse will direct you as to exactly how to make various types of pasta dough by using the machine.

Positive Points

  • Cooks Faster Than Boxed Pasta

    Once you create some dough with this pasta-making appliance, it should cook on your stovetop 70 percent faster than dry pasta from a box. Plus, you'll be able to get it into the pot faster than you'd be able to if you kneaded, it, mixed it, and fed it through a manual pasta-making tool. That means you and whoever you're cooking for won't have to wait as long as you otherwise would before consuming your meal, so you may engage in less unhealthy snacking in the process.

  • Good for Large Families

    The Emeril Lagasse Pasta & Beyond device is capable of making up to a pound of dough at once, which is the equivalent of eight servings of pasta. If you make this much dough, you should be able to make enough pasta with it to feed a large family for at least one meal. Similarly, if you want to cook a meal for a group of several work colleagues, you may find using this pasta-making machine to be beneficial.

  • Makes Other Types of Dough

    With the standard Emeril Lagasse machine, you'll be able to make pizza, bread, or bagel dough, too, by following the same process you'd use to make some pasta dough. Furthermore, there are three additional attachments you'll have the option of obtaining and interchangeably adding to your machine. These include a juicer attachment, a slicer attachment, and a meat grinder attachment, and they'll allow you to prepare a much wider variety of dishes with the same device. There's also an Emeril Lagasse juicing recipe book you can use to help you get started.

Critical Advice

If you don't use the dough you make with this appliance right away, you must package it up in one or more freezer-safe bags or containers and freeze it. It may lose its ideal texture and consistency if you put it in your refrigerator instead, or leave it sitting out on a counter or tabletop. When you want to use your frozen noodles, you can simply grab them from your freezer and dump them into a pot of boiling water to be cooked.

Warnings

  • Don't Overfill

    This type of appliance is meant to accommodate only the ingredients you'll need to make a pound (or less) of pasta dough, so you must avoid overfilling it. Even if it looks like it can hold more ingredients, stick to what your recipe book (or an alternative recipe you're using) tells you to add to make one pound or a half-pound of noodles. If you were to overfill your machine, the spout might get clogged up, and cleaning it out would likely be a time-consuming job.

Save Money

Those people who don't like the taste of boxed pasta and don't like making dough with a manual tool may find themselves frequently ordering pasta dishes from restaurants or getting premade dough at the store. Once you have one of these pasta-making appliances, though, you'll be able to make pasta at home that doesn't taste as if it came out of a cardboard box. This is the most cost-effective option, especially in comparison to ordering restaurant-made meals.

Was very interested in buying this machine as a gift but after reading all the reviews I am having second thoughts, maybe I will wait until it has been on the market longer and has all the '' bugs'' removed. Thank you for all the comments.

How Much to Ship Back

My mom bought this but we had to put her in an assisted living home and can't use it. Approximately how much does it cost to ship back? It is within the 90 days.

Love It!

Never made pasta before I purchased this pasta maker. I’ve made penne, linguine and lasagna. I watched the videos on the Emeril site and it helped due to the fact the chef addresses what the dough should look like while being extracted. I’ve had huge success! Now I am a pasta and frozen dessert making juicer! Worth the buy!

Use the Measuring Cups with the Pasta Machine

I read the reviews after I purchased my machine but before I got it. I admit it. I was concerned the machine would be a "lemon". What I learned after I got my machine and actually used it - following the directions MUST include paying attention and using the measuring cups that came with the machine. I experimented and tried using a regular measuring cup instead of the 'dry' measuring cup included. My 'regular' measuring cup was almost 1/2 more flour than what the included dry measuring cup provided. Also, make sure you are paying attention to the 150 Mark on the wet measuring cup. If you don't and just fill it to the top line, you will be adding WAY too much water. My final analysis of the negative reviews is that these people don't read and follow directions like they think they do. My machine has made several dozen pounds of pasta perfectly. So I am sold and this is a great machine.

Consider Well

OMG. These comments have changed my mind to order this. I do think that maybe some people just have no knack for cooking. The type that can't boil water or toast bread lol I have cooked/baked all my 60+years it seems I love it! I'm also a seamstress, housekeeper, AND assistant handyman. So I do believe I can conquer anything! I'm still considering getting this.

Great Pasta Machine

I have had the pasta machine for about a month and have used it about 12 times. I love it. I was really upset with the attitude and lack of ability of the person doing the youtube review, Just because she couldn't read the instructions and use the machine properly, some people may feel the machine isn't worth it. I have had no issues with the machine or pasta at all.

Too Dry Pasta to Make Ravioli

I'm following the recipe for 1 Batch using Lasagna P8 disc: Dry: 1-1/2 cup flour and 1/2 tsp salt. Wet: 1 large egg, 1/2 tsp olive oil, and the rest water up to the 70 ml mark. Yet the dough extruded is dry, hard, and not flexible enough to make layers for Ravioli. I used the penne disc and had some fair results. I had better results with the Fettuccine. I don't know what I'm doing wrong or if it's the machine. Any hints would be great. The only thing I can think of is that sometimes I don't spray the disc with oil before starting the process. If that's the issue, then it's on me. But I've read many of the other comments and see similar results I have gotten.

For 1 batch it should be 1 and 1/4 cups of flour. The extra 1/4 cup you listed could account for the stiffness.

Emril Lagasse Pasta & Beyond

Used the pasta maker today. Double batch. Used the penne disc and the first batch came out OK but had holes in the pasta. The machine clogged up and it took me half an hour to remove the dough from all the parts. Disappointed. Cooked the first batch and my husband loved it. So I will try making another type of noodle next time before I decide whether to keep it or not.

Disappointed to say the Least

Made linguine tonight for dinner and it was mushy dough when we tried to eat it. Had a pasta maker a while back that I loved and decided to give it a go again cause you can't beat fresh pasta. Unfortunately, I no longer have the box so any idea if I can return it?

Problem with Pasta Coming Out

I had to keep pausing the machine and hand feed the dough into the chamber to get the pasta to dispense. I also asked before ordering if Almond and coconut flour was able to be used. Do you have any tips if not I will be returning the machine?

Emeril Lagasse Pasta & Beyond Pasta Maker

I don't know why people are having so much trouble with this. From what I read, people think the dough is too dry and so they add more liquid. The dough should almost be gritty, like dry sand. You may think it's not going to extrude the dough but as you can see from the picture, it came out extremely easy the first time and in just a few minutes. In fact, cleaning the machine is what took the most time.

Hi Dee, My daughter and I didn't spend 8 hours, but had a very similar - frustrating experience. I spent more time taking the machine apart and cleaning it than we did boiling the half batch of noodles that acturally extruded through the disc. Mine is in the box and ready to be returned today! So disappointed.

Worked Great!

I purchased the Pasta Machine and read all of the instruction books first. Washed everything up and just looked at it and was a little intimidated. I couldn't get the lid off. I really tried. Was afraid I would break the lip, so I called the customer support number. The gentleman was very helpful and the lid came off. So I figured the hard part was done. I continued on and made a double batch of linguini noodles and they came out absolutely great and delicious. Will try some more noodles with the machine. Are there any more noodle recipes or juicing recipes?

Looking for Refund

Absolutely awful product! Followed the instructions to a tee. After two failed attempts, no pasta ever extruded. Have the machine boxed up and ready for return! My hope is the company is honest enough to honor my request. Surprised Emeril would put his name to such a shoddy product.

Pasta and Beyond

Just made my first batch. In retrospect, this is a science project. There are factors that will affect your pasta dough. I used a jumbo egg and this affects how much water you've put in to come up to that 70 ml Mark. I used 00 flour. A friend who is a chef recommended a 50% blend of semolina. One thing I am going to try is a rest time for the dough. Most articles I read talk of at least a 30 minute rest time before extruding. It takes that long for the gluten to relax which will allow for easier extruding. The machine seems to do the basics. The user needs to refine the process.

Can't get the Damn lid Off!

I got my pasta machine a week ago, & Decided to unpack the thing. Got everything washed up & dried; - except for the lid, the Auger inside the thing & the part that the ingredients go in.
I Can't get the damn lid off! How do I get the stupid lid off?

I had trouble getting the lid off too. It is hard but you can do it. Squeeze the two little handles together and lift them up. There is a little lip under the bottom handle and you have to pop that out. Good luck.

Not Worth the Money

We bought this thinking how great it would be! The instructions are vague they don't give good direction. The machine is good concept but you have to hand feed the dough for it to extract! Not sure about the other attachments but very disappointed!

Poor Noodles

Tried the lasagna noodle twice once for manicotti and again for ravioli. Noodle came out dry and curled. No way to make a lasagna or ravioli. Tried penne for Mac and cheese. The noodle had holes in it not a smooth noodle. I’m done trying and plan to send it back.

Hi Cindi,
I have a few pointers for you as I don’t know if you ever had any experience making pasta dough.
The pasta dough - once all your ingredients are mixed, make sure the dough appears shiny. Accomplish by adding small amounts of oil to the dough. Remember the dough must “rest” after it has been thoroughly mixed.
I feel once I receive my pasta and beyond I will be able to provide useful tips to those who never made pasta before. I have been making it myself by hand since I was nine years old. While mixing you made need to add flour sprinkle amount and blend it throughout the dough. Before letting it rest take a very small amount of olive oil into your hands just to coat the outside of the dough all around. This will prevent the dough from sticking to the pasta select shapes you wish to use.

Feel free to email me and I will help guide you through the process.

Becky,

Did you think about googling for the manual? It is on the internet.

I like Playing with It

Haven't used it yet. Spent 6 days studying instructions and identifying parts and what there for. For. No problem. Watched video. Figure her problem is she never referred to troubleshooting. Needs more flour. Using it today. For dinner, we're even having spaghetti. Or sloppy joes. Lol.

Way too Expensive of a Product

There is no way in hell that I would spend $200 for a piece of plastic with Emeril Lagasse's name on it. Emeril Lagasse & the company that makes this product just isn't worth it.

The company has a history of being difficult to deal with. They give excuses instead of trying to help the customer. I ordered my machine but it wasn't until I called the company that I found out that the machine is back-ordered. When I emailed customer service, all I got back was a generic sorry for the inconvenience. Worried about what I will find when I get the machine?

Still Testing

First try. 1/2 lbs basic pasta with the fettucine disk. Sprayed the disk and watched the ingredient amounts. Started the process. The outer holes clogged immediately. The inner holes extruded a dry ragged band.

Added more water. It worked a little better. 5 Minutes we're up, still too dry. Started up again and added more water. Now the middle holes extruded an acceptable fettucine. Ran out of time again.

Now the dough seemed too wet and stuck to the paddle. After about 30 to 35 minutes it was finished. Cooked the pasta, tasted as expected. Will try next with 1/2 semolina flour and a penne disk.

Cleaning was simple except for the extrusion disk. The brush is not strong enough, had to use toothpicks to pry out the dough. Not rated by stars, since still too new.

When measuring the flour, keep in mind that the dry measuring cup holds 1.5 cups of flour. Do not use it as a 1 to1 cup. The liquid measuring cup uses pictures to Mark 1 batch or 2 batches. Fill the liquid cup with liquid (egg, water, juice, oil, whatever recipe calls for) to the appropriate batch Marker. The reviewer used too much liquid.

Pasta & Beyond Machine

WHAT A MESS. My son pestered me about what to give me for Christmas so I said why don't you get me Emeril Lagasse's Pasta Machine. I had watched the infomercial about Emeril's Pasta and Beyond machine and I liked Emeril. Well, yesterday we set out to make pasta with the machine. Let me tell you it is disgusting! I have been cooking for 70 some years and never before have I made such a mess. That machine is worthless and just wastes ingredients. The best part is it costs over $200. I measured all ingredients exactly and followed all directions to the letter. The first batch using the pasta recipe and the pene disc formed a hard lump that stuck to the blades and would not extrude The second batch using a Ramon recipe with no oil or egg extruded grainy strings that when dropped into boiling broth turned into slime. This piece of garbage is going back today. Oh Yes, it took me over an hour to clean it. There is just nothing good to say about this product.

When measuring the flour, did you use the dry measuring cup as a 1 cup measurement or 1.5 cups? If too much flour is used, the dough will be hard. The liquid measuring cup has pictures on it that Mark 1 or 2 batches. Fill only in the appropriate line for the amount of pasta you plan to make.
