works as well as it could (it's not magical) Apr 14, 2010
By James J. Pyke
Making ravioli, in my limited experience, is not easy. It takes care, attention to detail, and good tools.
Oh, and lots of time!
I am pretty far from perfecting my technique, and I still get frustrated with the process (sometimes to the point of literally screaming in the kitchen).
If you feel you're up for the challenge, though, you could do much worse that purchasing one of these to help make the process a little easier.
I've used other tools, and this is the best and quickest (where "quick" is a relative term).
Here are a handful of pointers so maybe you can learn a little from my mistakes:
- be careful not to roll your dough too thin or it won't have the stretching room it will need - don't make it too dry either or it won't have the flexibility it needs when you're working it - both of the above are totally subjective, so you'll have to experiment to get it right (and here lies one frustration factor) - flour the side of the dough well where it touches the metal tray or the pressed ravioli will not release (more frustration) - be thoughtful about rolling it to the proper width so that it will fit properly on the metal tray of the press while also not wasting loads of your lovely fresh dough
- air inside ravioli is bad. it will cause them to burst while boiling.
So... - fill the indentations with enough filling so that the top surface (pasta and filling) across the metal tray is as level as possible before you brush with egg wash and lay on the top dough layer. This will help minimize the amount of air you will get inside the sealed ravioli - lay the top layer of dough down gently working from one end or edge to the other and pressing down as you go so that you eliminate as much air as possible from between the layers - after you've rolled over the tray to separate the individual ravioli, you may want/need to do a final quick check on some or all of the ravioli to press out any remaining air. I use a toothpick to prick a little hole near one corner, and then work from the opposite corner to press out air and firm up the seal on each little packet.
finally! you might think you've worked hard enough by now, but while you're going through tray after tray, trying to work quickly before your dough dries out, you might get busted at the end unless you do the following... - be careful about the moisture level in your filling! if it is too wet, the dough on your completed ravioli will get soggy while you are working on the rest, and this may result in things sticking together when you least want them to right as you are finally about to toss them into the gently boiling water (never a rolling boil, because that will either burst the ravioli, or cook them on the otside before they're finished on the inside). - add breadcrumbs to filling to adjust moisture level (more experimentation) - flour the outside of each finished ravioli thoroughly. if you get too much flour in your cooking water, you can always change it out for fresh water, but you can't fix two or more ravioli that have formed a tragic sticky glob of glued together raw ingredients.
That's about it. The product itself is great. The process gets easier with lots of practice.
I'm thinking there's a reason why ravioli recipes (and techniques) are the sort of thing that get passed down from generation to generation, because it ain't easy coming up with the whole thing from scratch (or from a book).

Spray, Fill, Roll, and you're done! Feb 14, 2010
By Sandra Mertens
I bought this ravioli maker from[...] (for faster shipping). I also bought The Pasta Bible for recipes to use with the ravioli maker. I used it and, although making the dough and rolling it out can be difficult, the ravioli maker makes ravioli very easily. You just roll out the dough, place over the base (with the holes), use the other piece to make pockets, insert your fillings, brush with water/egg white, place the 2nd dough on top, and use a rolling pin on it to break up the pieces. They should then just easily push out.
But live and learn -- make sure you grease the ravioli maker every single time you do a new set! Our first set was almost impossible to get off the maker and they looked deformed, but our 2nd set looked perfect after we sprayed the maker with cooking spray.

Better tan pasta machines do Jun 15, 2009
By Diane E. Jezewski I recently had gotten a Villaware Pasta set for my birthday. One of the main reasons was the ravioli press. What a disaster that was. then I thought hmm, I'll try this. what a delight. I made up about 130 ravioli yesterday. It works great. I would like to mention to make sure you liberally flour it before laying on the dough so they pop out quick. It took for a few roll outs to discover this. I highly recommend this product, it is a gem.

So much easier than making individual ravs Sep 22, 2009
By R. L. Shagon Works quite well and you get a very professional looking product. One tip; spray the mold with Pam before laying on first piece of pasta. Makes for easier separation from the mold. It forms pretty deep pockets so alhough they aren't really big ravs there's room for a good amount of filling.

Must Own Kitchen Gadget Dec 12, 2009
By Don J. Trufan This is a must own kitchen gadget for any pasta lover.. I grew up on home made raviiolis but making the dough was always a hassle and a mess. Go to your supermarket produce section, get a pack of egg roll dough. It makes 4 dozen quick easy raviolis. Spray cooking spray on maker, put (2) dough wraps on, push down press, fill with filling, egg wash seams, put top on, roll and they will just fall out. I give this product a big thumbs up.....
