What’s the difference between the TR 75 and the TR 75 C?

The TR 75 is better than the TR 75 C when you need to work with a ravioli maker.

What’s the difference between the TR 150 and the stainless steel TR 150?

The white TR 150 has only 1 knife (for cutting short pasta). The knife for long pasta cannot be added.
This aspect and the coated bodywork are the only differences with the stainless steel TR 150.

What is the knife unit and what is it for?

The knife unit consists of the following: power supply, protection device, knife motor, and a 1-blade knife.
It is used for cutting short pasta.
The TR 50 knife has only 1 blade. The maximum length obtained cutting at minimum speed is about 10 cm.
The TR 70 and TR 75 E come with a standard 1-blade knife. Upon request, you can have a 2- or 4-blade knife, but not a 3-blade one.
The TR 95 and TR 110 can have a 1- 2- 3- or 4-blade knife.
The TR 150 can have a 1- 2- or 4-blade knife.
The 4-blade knife cuts the pasta to a length ranging from 2 mm to 5 or 6 cm. It’s adjustable and suitable for short pasta.

Do all machines have the penne die?

No, the TR 75 E does not have the penne die.

How much pasta can a pasta tray contain?

On average, the 40x60x7h cm pasta trays can contain 2 kg of pasta. The average drying time is 2 hours (if the pasta is too dry, it falls apart while cooking).

What’s the difference between the RV 30 and the RV 50?

The RV 30 ravioli maker is basically the same as the RV 50 only smaller. The number of ravioli produced is more or less the same.
The sheet of the RV 30 is 100 mm wide and 2 mm thick, while for the RV 50, it’s 120 mm wide and 2 mm thick.
With the RV 30, you will have to separate the ravioli manually as they are produced in a strip, whereas with the RV 50 they come out already separated.
The RV 30 is usually paired with the TR 75 (we recommend the TR 75 version rather than the C version), whereas the RV 50 can be paired with the TR 95 and the TR 110.

What is the sheet roller for?

This attachment is for rolling the sheet you just made with the pasta machine onto the rolling pins.
For the RV 30, it is not indispensable; you can also roll the sheet onto the rolling pins manually.

What is the special die?

It’s a die that allows you to obtain a sheet of the right size to feed into the ravioli maker. You can’t use a standard sheet die for the ravioli maker.
With the RV 30, this die makes a 100 mm sheet; with the RV 50, a 120 mm sheet that is 2 mm thick.
You cannot use a standard sheet die to make ravioli sheets.

What sizes do the rolling pins come in?

Rolling pin sizes:

RV 50 = Ø 40 mm x 245 mm length + 2 strokes Ø 24 mm x 58 mm
RV 30 = Ø 30 mm x 227 mm length + 2 strokes Ø 15 mm x 60.5 mm
