Prepare to make homemade pasta that any Italian grandmother would be proud of. All you need is flour, egg, and our Italian Chitarra Pasta Cutter - the pasta-making essential. Made of natural wood and strung like a guitar, the Chitarra (pronounced key-tahr-rah) reflects the musicality and artistry that Italians bring to their cuisine.

The Chitarra was invented in the 1800s from Chieti, Italy to make long strings of pasta the old-fashioned way. Equipped with iron strings, these are each spaced equally on both sides but with different thickness and a slanted center that allows the various kinds of pasta to slide off easily.

By pressing down on the wires, the spaghetti pieces fall through. The wires will cut the pasta into equal sized strips that fall through the wires. The strips of pasta can be collected through the open side. Use one side for thinner noodles, and flip around and use the bottom for wider noodles.

Small Chitarra: 15 x 7.75 x 3.25 in.
Rolling Pin: 9.5'' x 1 in.

Hand wash only. Use a pastry scraper to remove any sticky pieces of dough. Treat wood and wires with food-safe mineral oil to keep your chitarra in prime condition. Never run through the dishwasher. Store in a clean, dry place.

Over time, strings may become loose. To tighten, use a large flathead screwdriver to rotate the two silver screws until strings are taut.
