THINGS TO NOTE

  • Heavy – The maker weights 8 kg and is not something you can move around effortlessly.
  • Need assembling – The front panel needs to be disassembled every time when we change the shaping disc or for cleaning.
  • Not dishwasher safe – Main unit & accessories are not dishwasher safe, since most noodle recipe will not need oil as ingredient, cleaning with just water is usually sufficient.
  • Use a tray – Place it in front of the maker to ease handling of noodle.
  • Dust with flour – We find that it is better to dust the noodle as it extrudes out to prevent it from sticking. Especially if you are not cooking the noodles immediately.

  • Do not clean immediately – let all the parts dry out a little before washing. Wet dough & water will turn
  • Best to make a big batch – good for a week and freeze it. Maximum amount of noodle per session is 500gm. The manual recommend 2 standards – 250gm or 500 gm noodles. We attempt to make 5 rounds of 500gm each, dust and separate into individual bags before storing in the freezer. This save us a lot of time – since we just do everything once.

VERDICT

  • Recommended for family who are heavy noodle eater.
  • Its more practical to make a big batch and freeze. Making fresh noodle daily means you’ll have to clean out all the parts every time.
