it's the type that attaches to a ka.
the rollers got crusty and i impatiently wiped them with a damp cloth while they were were moving and the cloth got caught.
after writing the word "dunce" on a pastry bag, putting it on my head and sitting in the corner for a while, i managed to free the cloth.
now the rollers don't move at all.
has anyone managed to treat a badly injured pasta machine?
the ka is fine and no other appliances were harmed during the incident.
Actually altho we aren't meant to imerse the attachments in water - i have been known to dampen a cloth - and feed it through the rollers to clean them after thinning out regalice (fondant)
Maybe there is a tiny bit of cloth jammed somewhere - that is causing the rollers not to move....
Can you set the dial so as to open the rollers as wide as you can - because i am also thinking that maybe they are sticky from the dampness -
Perhaps leaving them set *wide apart* will help them dry out - and try again in the morning.
Its such a bugger not being able to throw them in the sink with hot soapy water and give them a jolly good scrub -
Welllllllllll I'm glad to hear there is someone else who is as stupid as I am LOL
I did the same thing several years ago. Don't think I was ever soooooooo mad at myself! Yep, you probably sheared a certain piece of metal (can't remember what it is) but there is NO cure.........just putting out $100 for a new one.
Thanks for the warning, I plan on getting one eventually and will try to avoid that. I killed a tabletop hand-crank machine already by going in reverse with fondant. Bent a metal piece, now it always gets stuck.
i figured that the way to resolve this would be my laying out some cash for a new one.
my impatience, my bad.
i'm mad at myself too but my dogs still love me. probably because they think i spend waayyy too much time playing with cake toys.
i don't know how big your's is but i ordered on online from jo-anns with their on line coupon and and shipping was only 2.96 so i got it for 17.00.
