I am still looking for the measurements of the Ron Popeil measuring cup, which did not come with the machine. Would some sweet person put water in their cup and tell me how much each line measures? I would be eternally grateful. Thanks so much.

I do not have a pasta machine but all cup measurements are 1/4 =4 to each cup-
I located this -Ron Popeil: From the website, ronco.com, or call 1-800-43ronco-you may call-good luck.
So I have one of the pasta measuring cups that came with my CTC Creative Technologies x2000 Pasta Maker. I think it's the same as the Popeil and Ronco models, as CTC bought them out. Here are the measurements (they are a little weird).
all water - 3/4 cup
2 eggs + water - 3/4 cup + 1 tbsp
all eggs - 1 cup (4 eggs)
full cup - 1 and 7/8 cup
Hope this helps.
I would appreciate recipes for the Ron Popei automatic pasta maker. Thank you ever so much.

#1 Pasta with eggs:
1 Tsp salt (optional)
Set up machine. Place desired die in hot water. Put flour and salt in machine conrainer. Break eggs into measuring cup and add water up to line marked 2 eggs with water. Note: For best consistency add 2 tsps of olive oil into cup before adding water.
Beat mixture in measuring cup thoroughly.Affix die to machine. Screw knob onto nozzle, tightening by hand. Place cover on machine. Push switch to mix. Very slowly pour 1/3 liquid at a time through slot in cover, allowing the dough to mix evenly. When dough looks fairly dry, pull switch forward to extrude position. This should be after 3 minutes of mixing.
I have the Creative Pasta Express X500, but it was made the same as Popeil, so it should be almost the same. Hope this helps Bonnie. lindancs
