Right! I'd forgotten about that bit. Probably why I stopped using it.


Mine just gets flour on it which I brush off with a brush.


Well, I'm not sure how you manage that! Mine gets dough trapped inside. I'm talking about the cutting machine rather than the roller.
Bugger off.

No, but you have to roll out the dough really thin (where it becomes transparent). The machine is great for that.


Great - very helpful. It is good to hear you like rolling your own as well.

I think you have to be generous, dusting the dough with flour. But I mainly just use the roller, as I like to cut it myself.

I don't roll my own. That's why I like the machine.
