If you have a good quality pasta maker machine, you will have both a pasta roller attachment and a spaghetti or fettuccine attachment. Let’s say that you have just made your own homemade spaghetti, and you want to hang them somewhere to dry.

Pasta drying racks can definitely come in handy when you have made any type of long pasta, such as spaghetti or fettuccine. This rack will let you dry up to 10-square feet of pasta, and let me that you this: that is more than enough for most cooks. Using the drying rack will prevent the pasta from sticking together during the drying process. Sounds like a pretty nice accessory, doesn’t it?

A lot of people stick with spaghetti and fettuccine the first few times that they make pasta. But as you most likely know, there is a whole world with a large variety of pasta out there. With this simple and cheap tool, you can start with creating your very own ravioli. So if you are wondering about the best way to cut ravioli, this is it.

If you are looking for a sturdy pasta & ravioli cutter, I recommend the Norpro Ravioli Maker with Press (Amazon), as it simply does the job and it doesn’t cost a lot. Unlike pasta maker machines, this accessory doesn’t have to cost a lot to be of good quality. The pasta cutter is made from high stainless steel, so you won’t be getting yourself a piece of plastic that you will regret getting yourself after unpacking it.

With this simple but effective ravioli cutter you will be able to create that fancy edge on your pasta and ravioli, the same edge that you get served in a restaurant where you get served homemade ravioli. If you want to make your pasta a little extra fancy, this is the tool you need.

That being said, this one of the accessories that can be used for a lot of other food besides pasta as well. I do not just use this cutter for cutting fancy edges on my pasta, but also to make my own cookies, yum. Yeah, pasta is not the only thing I love (sorry not sorry).

“Slice and dice, this pasta and ravioli cutter is the perfect pasta accessory for everyone with a pasta maker.”

If there is one accessory that you definitely want if you are planning on making homemade ravioli for your friends and family, it is a ravioli stamp. This simple yet crafty accessory will help you use your pasta maker machine to its full extent.

There are a variety of ravioli cutters on the market, with different shapes and some made from different materials. The ravioli cutters that I recommend are from the brand Eppicotispai. The reason that I prefer this brand is because most of the cheaper ravioli stamps just don’t do the trick. These cheaper ravioli will not seal the ravioli most of the time, something that happens a lot less with our stamps from this brand. If your ravioli isn't sealed well, the the filling can just drip out when you are cooking them. And you don't want to let your pretty ravioli go to waste.

If you are just starting out with making pasta, I recommend that you go for the round and square ravioli stamps. They will do the trick (for now, of course) and you will be able to test various fillings for your ravioli with these ravioli stamps.

“Perfect accessory for creating ravioli, and with the many shapes that are available you can let your ravioli imagination flow.”
