Raise the bar.

Taken from the word ferro, or iron, this brass utensil is used for making long, tubular pasta shapes like busiate, bucatini, maccheroni, and even homemade fusilli. In the past, inventive cooks used reeds or sticks to make their shapes, though today’s home cooks rely more on wire or metal tools like these. Typically used for durum wheat pasta shapes, roll your dough around the ferretto for a delightfully corkscrew-style result (perfect for catching sauce, of course).

 

What to know:

  • Includes one square and one twisted rod with 1/8-inch diameter
  • Made of 100% brass
  • Clean with a damp cloth and a little lemon juice for shine

Care Instructions

Brass is best cleaned naturally! To clean brass tools, take a clean rag and dampen in a mixture of water and lemon juice, or water and baking soda. Squeeze out excess water and gently rub the brass to clean off any dough or flour stuck to the surface. Allow tools to dry in a cool, ventilated place. Note: never run tools through dishwasher, and do not use dish soap.

Busiate? EASY!

Was easily able to make busiate pasta for the first time with these amazing brass rods. I didn't expect it to be so easy. Thank you so much q.b.Cucina!

Just perfect

When we were in Rome over Christmas I searched and searched for a Ferretto to no avail. I have been wanting to make different shapes of pasta and a ferretto seemed to offer many possibilities. I am glad I found q.b. Cucina. I just love these ferretti, They are gorgeous. It has taken me a couple of times to get the technique down, but I am getting there. Highly recommended.

Bellisimo!

After a recent trip to Puglia, i was in search of a ferretto di pasta. Hard to find, even there! I was directed to your website and ordered the set. The ferretti are breathtaking and were beautifully packaged. Cant wait to use them!

The best

These are great tools for anyone who likes to make pasta, professionally or otherwise. Delicate enough for shapes but robust enough to stand up to a commercial kitchen. I will be back to shop at qb cucina again soon. Thank you for making good products!
