Dark Spots or Streaks in Dough - Pasta Roller

Possible Solution

Dark spots/streaks in the dough

  • A "food-safe" lubricant is applied to the roller and cutters during manufacturing to lubricate the rollers and help prevent rusting.
  • This lubricant may be seen on the pasta dough and appears as dark spots or streaks.
  • Usually, this will cease after the first use.

If you see spots in the dough:

  • Hold a damp paper towel on the underside of the rotating roller to help remove excess lubricant from the roller. I
  • Do not run the paper towel through the roller.
