How to knead pizza or bread dough in my Philips Pasta Maker
Published on 21 March 2023
If you want to know how to use your Philips Pasta Maker for kneading dough such as pizza or bread dough, please read our article below.
Switch on the pasta maker. When you have an auto-weighing pasta maker, select either the program for plain pasta, egg or flavored pasta (as you shall not follow the liquid calculation, it does not matter which program you choose).
Put all dry ingredients in the mixing chamber and close the lid.
Start the kneading by pressing the start button.
Pour the liquid ingredients slowly alongside the slots on the lid. Note: for auto-weighing appliances do not follow the calculated amount of water on the display but stick to your recipe.
Let the pasta maker knead the dough for 3:00 minutes as indicated on the display. When the timer is at 00:00, stop the pasta maker by pressing the Start/Pause button or On/Off.
Unplug the appliance and remove the dough from the mixing chamber. Let the dough rise and proceed as usual.
Do not leave the pasta maker unattended while kneading and do not use the extrusion function.
Always unplug the appliance before reaching into the mixing chamber.
