I see that this has .06" vermicelli and .25"fettuccine settings. Does it also have the modes for just flattening the dough in one big piece and not in noodle strands of varying thicknesses? If not does it have attachments that can be bought?
Yes, this pasta machine is capapble of flattening the dough for making the pasta.
I am more interested in making sheets. How wide are the sheets and how many thickness options does this machine offer? Thanks!
Hello, the machine itself has a 5" width so the sheets will be slightly smaller than that. It has a side turner which brings the rollers in or out for varying thicknesses. Thank you!

When exactly was the norpro 1049r pasta machine made?
Hi, unfortunately we are unable to determine when exactly this pasta machine was made but it is a brand new machine. Thank you.
why is the machine not cutting the dough? I have the roller set on 5, is that too thin?
Hello, according to the product manual - "If the rollers wonʼt “cut”, this means the dough is too soft, pass the dough through the smooth rollers, after adding some flour to the mixture." If you are still experiencing issues after trying this step, we would recommend contacting the Norpro manufacturer directly at 425-261-1000. Thank you!

How do you clean the Norpro 1049 Hand Crank Pasta Machine?
Hello, according to the product manual this machine should never be washed with water or put in the dishwasher. Instead, it should be cleaned with a brush or a wooden rod. If necessary, you can put several drops of mineral oil on the ends of the cutting rollers. Images of this can be seen in the manual listed under the "Literature" tab on the product page. Thank you!
