In the culinary art, every tool has its role: using the right tools can transform an ordinary dish into a true gastronomic masterpiece.
Imagine you are an artist, the pastry sheet is your canvas: the pasta cutter wheel is the paintbrush that allows you to precisely and creatively draw whatever you want, transforming a sheet of pasta into a collection of culinary delights. The pasta cutter wheel proves to be a small and powerful, but above all irreplaceable companion for professionals and cooking enthusiasts alike, allowing them to create delicious homemade pasta dishes.
The pastry cutter wheel is a small tool consisting of a handle to which a steel wheel is attached, with a sharp, mostly wavy edge. It is used to cut puff pastry precisely and cleanly, allowing different shapes to be created as required.
Pastry cutting wheels are particularly useful for preparing fresh handmade pasta, especially if it is to be served at special events or celebrations. Pasta cutting wheels can be used to create different types of pasta, e.g. tagliatelle, fettuccine, pappardelle or lasagne, but also filled pasta such as ravioli, tortellini and cappelletti.
The pastry cutter wheels are available in different sizes and materials: some models are equipped with a pair of wheels, one with a smooth wire and one with a wavy wire, in order to obtain a linear or festooned edge.
Single- and double-blade pasta cutter wheels differ mainly in their versatility of use and the type of cut they allow.
In either case, the choice between a single- or double-blade pasta cutter wheel depends mainly on your personal needs and the type of pasta you would like to prepare. If you plan to use the wheel mainly to cut pasta cleanly and precisely, a single-blade wheel might be sufficient. If, on the other hand, you wish to be able to vary the type of cut, a double-blade wheel is the best choice.
Cleaning the pasta cutter wheel is very important to preserve its qualities. If your pasta cutter wheel is made of stainless steel, you can wash it either by hand or in the dishwasher. We recommend that you remove pasta residues from the wheel when it is dry and before putting it in the dishwasher, use a toothpick or a damp cloth to do this.
If you want to sharpen your pasta cutter wheel you can use the same method as knife sharpening, but it requires a lot of care and precision. The most common and effective method of sharpening is to use a stone specifically for this job, also known as a whetstone.
To sharpen the pastry cutter wheel you have to grip it firmly with one hand and place the blade on the stone at an angle of about 20 degrees. Slide the blade of the pastry cutter on the stone, in the opposite direction to the one you would use to cut. Repeat this movement several times, always maintaining the same angle. After working one side of the blade for a while, turn the pasta cutter wheel and repeat the process on the other side.
It is important to remember that sharpening is not something that needs to be done frequently: regular maintenance of the pasta cutter wheel can help keep the blade sharp for longer. This includes proper cleaning after each use and avoiding using the wheel on hard surfaces or other materials that could damage the blade.
In conclusion, the pasta cutter wheel is an indispensable tool for those who love to prepare fresh and handmade pasta. In addition to being practical and easy to use, this tool allows us to customise and create many different dishes according to our imagination. Whether you are a kitchen professional or an enthusiast, the pasta cutter wheel is a tool you cannot do without!
