A stage for your pasta dough.
Some call it a pastry board, but we say pasta board, because well, we’re pasta-obsessed.
This large board is made out of 100% maple hardwood, an ideal surface for kneading and rolling pasta thanks to its natural porosity, which absorbs excess moisture and prevents your dough from sticking. Another reason why wood is important for pasta making? The textured grain of the wood imparts a porous texture onto your dough that will aid your pasta in capturing the most sauce. Plus, the natural warmth of the wood is a crucial element because pasta dough does not like to be cold. Still not convinced? Wood is what the sfogline (pasta makers) of Italy have used for centuries. Tradition for the win!
With a sturdy lip on either side, this wooden pasta board is reversible and rests securely on your counter so that you can put that extra oomph into your kneading.
What to know:
- Made of 100% maple hardwood
- 28″ long, 22″ wide, distance from back of the board to the lip is 0.75″
- Only use your pasta board for pastry, bread, and pasta dough.
