THE rise in popularity of home-made pasta has highlighted the importance of finely-sieved flour and adequate kneading to achieve a perfect result.
The other key factor is to allow the pasta to dry a little before cooking, which ensures each strand stays whole when cooked and doesn't become gluggy.
Gefu, renowned for its quality craftsmanship in kitchen accessories, has produced a means of drying freshly made pasta.
The Gefu Pasta Dryer features six arms that radiate from a central column.
Each arm, complete with ridges to ensure the strands of pasta are evenly spaced, can be removed and carried direct to the pasta-making machine to be loaded with spaghetti, tagliatelle or even lasagne sheets.
This ensures minimal handling and less risk of breakage.
After use the pasta dryer can be easily dismantled and washed in the dishwasher.
And while each piece comes apart for convenient washing this also makes for extremely neat and compact storage.
