Making Fresh Pasta with the Philips Pasta Maker

*Disclaimer - I received the product in this post from Philips, in order to facilitate this review.

Are you looking for a healthier way to eat and make your own pasta?

So I absolutely love this pasta maker from Philips! It’s super easy to use and quicker than what I thought It would be. 

The machine came with four pasta shaped plates: spaghetti, fettuccine, lasagna, and penne. I decided to use the penne pasta since we already had the other types in our pantry. 

To install the plates, you need to remove the gray face plates and just insert it. It’s that easy! I also love that there’s a compartment to store the plates you’re not using. 

Before turning on your machine, dump your flour into the kneading cavity. The machine clones with measuring cups for precise measurements. I followed the measurements for a full pound of pasta since we all love it so much. 

Make sure you have the machine set to the correct settings (a half of a pound vs a pound) before turning it on. After the machine starts kneading the floor, slowly add the water along the water line of the cavity lid. It was really cool watching the machine do all the work. 

After a few minutes, the machine started dispensing the pasta. They provide a scraper to help cut the pasta. It was a little tricky to get us seed to at first, but it was easy. I actually tried using my kitchen scissors just to see the difference, and I preferred the cutting tool they provided. 

Once that was all done, I added it to boiling water for 6 minutes and it was perfect once it finished boiling. I added it to my creamy butter and garlic sauce, tossed in some spinach and chicken for a delicious meal. Everyone loved it!

I would definitely recommend this product to friends and family. I’m never going to buy boxed pasta again! It was so quick and easy - the final product was delicious. I will definitely be investing in other pasta shapes plates.


  1. Does that pasta seem to stick together as it's coming out, or in the bowl?
