[review] Philips Avance Noodle Maker (HR2365/05) - 飞利浦爱面机

Philips Avance Noodle Maker - HR2365/05
I often envy those friends who are able to make their own noodle/pasta that comes in various flavour such as carrot, spinach, pumpkin and etc. Now with my new Philips Avance Noodle Maker (飞利浦爱面机) which I received as a review set from Philips (Singapore); I so excited to create my own healthy homemade noodle/pasta with nutritious ingredients like egg, juice (vegetable/fruit) and/or herbs in just 10 minutes.



Here is a short clip of the Philips Avance Noodle Maker retailing at SG$329 that comes with a power of 200W and capacity size of 500 grams. With its user-friendly touch screen digital control panel, everyone at home including young kids can help up with the noodle making process with just a few touch on the buttons.

[Philips Avance Noodle Maker] Control Panel and Mixing Chamber
As you can see from the above, there are only 4 buttons on the control pan such as:-
- Power on/off button
- Extra extrusion button
- Bounciness control button
- Start/pause button

To begin the noodle making process:
1. Measure the flour and liquid for making either 1 (250g) or 2 (500g) portion of the noodles.

2. Press the power on/off button to switch on the noodle maker.

3. Remove the chamber lid and pour the flour into the chamber then close the lid properly.

4. The default kneading time on display is 5 minutes but you can press the bounciness control button to set the kneading time from 5 - 8 minutes for different type of noodles or your personal preference.

5. Press start/pause button to start processing (the appliance will beep once and the kneading indicator starts flashing).

6. Slowly pour in the liquid along the entire length of the slot on the left side of the chamber lid.

7. When the program finished, the noodles will come out from the shaping disc on the front panel and you can use the flat cleaning tool cut the noodles into desired length.

Note:
- After the noodle making is completed if you notice any leftover dough inside the chamber, you can press the extra-extruding follow by start/pause button for extra extrusion.


[Philips Avance Noodle Maker] Storage drawer and cleaning tools
At the bottom of the appliance you can find this "smart storage drawer" where you can easily store the shaping discs and cleaning tools in it so in a way you won't tend to misplace them after using/washing.

[Philips Avance Noodle Maker] Shaping discs and cleaning tools.
The appliance comes with 4 default shaping discs for making Spaghetti, Penne, Angel Hair and Fettuccine. And by using different shaping disc together with your choice of flour plus extra ingredients like egg, herbs or juice (example: spinach, carrot, beetroot) you can easily make various type and flavour of noodle for the family in 10 minutes.

[Philips Avance Noodle Maker] Measuring Cups
Measuring cups comes in handy to help you mix flour and water at right ratio without using a kitchen scale. Example: one full level cup of flour (scrap off any excessive flour from the cup edge with the flat cleaning tool) is approximately 250g.

For liquid measurement, please take note there are two sides of measuring lines (for making 1 or 2 cups of flour) on the cup such as liquid (water/juice) or egg + liquid for making egg noodle. So make sure you use the correct side of the measurement when making your preferred noodles.

Above are some example of flours that you can use to make your choice of noodles from plain, wholemeal to buckwheat with the help of the noodle maker.

[Philips Avance Noodle Maker] Wholemeal Carrot Noodle
After adding in flour and liquid into the mixing chamber, kneading and extruding process will finished in just 10 minutes after which you will get about 250g of fresh homemade noodle with 100% natural ingredients in it.

[Philips Avance Noodle Maker]  Disassembling the tools for cleaning
Cleaning the appliance before first and after every use is essential in order to keep it clean as well as removing the residues while making the noodle. By the way, don't worry about the leftover dough in the mixing chamber because they can be easily remove before washing.

To clean the noodle maker:
1. Press the power on/off button to turn off the noodle maker then and disconnect it from the power outlet.

2. Remove the chamber lid then loosen the front panel control knob to disassemble the front panel then follow by the shaping disc, shaping disc holder, mixing paddle and the mixing chamber in order.

3. Next use a dry cloth to clean flour residue in the hole, where the mixing paddle is placed.

*4. Clean the shaping disc with the supplied cleaning tool to remove dough residues stuck on it before cleaning it with water (refer to the cleaning process below).

- For better cleaning result, put the shaping disc into freezer for 2 hours or above, then use the cleaning tool to poke the dough in the holes out.

5. Clean and dry all detachable parts before assemble them back to the appliance.

*Besides the shaping discs, there are also two specially designed cleaning tool which match the shaping discs for Spaghetti and Fettuccine in order to make cleaning an easy one-push job.

Whereas the flat cleaning tool is use to cut the noodles away from the shaping discs or as a tool for cutting dumpling skin and lasagne sheet. As for metal pin on each end, it works as the same function as the pin shown above for removing the residues that stuck in the shaping discs (especially for angle hair and penne).

[Philips Avance Noodle Maker] Assembling the noodle maker
After cleaning the parts and accessories dry them thoroughly before assembling them back onto the appliance like what shown on the step-by-step photo above.

To assemble:
1. Push the mixing chamber into the appliance.

2. Position the mixing paddle to the hole in the main unit.

3. Attach the disc holder onto the front part (in line with the disc holder safety switch) of the appliance

4. Put the shaping disc onto the disc holder making sure it is firmly fixed.

5. Attach the front panel to the main unit and make sure the front panel knobs is fastened tightly.

6. Close the chamber lid properly.


Freshly made noodles can be store in the fridge for a few days (although eating them fresh will be great) by packing them separately for easy cooking on individual portion. But just take note to dust freshly made noodle with some flour to prevent strands from sticking when *storing in the fridge. Alternately dry noodles by hanging on noodle rack or stick in a dry place before storing.

* Note: Use air-tight container (instead of ziplock bag) to store packed noodles before putting them into the fridge.

Depending on individual preference and type of noodles; below is a guideline of the cooking time for noodles made using the Noodle Marker.
  • Thin noodles (angel hair) require about 4 - 5 minutes cooking time.
  • Thick noodles (spaghetti, fettuccine, udon) requires 6 - 8 minutes cooking time.
