Each Marcato Atlas pasta maker has mineral oil set inside the gears and rollers. This oil is used to ensure smooth functionality, consistency and is food safe. The oil can appear on the exterior of the pasta maker as it is manually applied and packed by hand.

Once you receive and open your new Marcato Atlas machine it is not uncommon for some mineral oil to appear on the exterior. You can simply wipe the excess off with a dry clean cloth. 

The excess mineral oil can leave marks on the interior of the box.

What is the best way to clean my pasta maker? 
"While making the pasta, it is inevitable for the machines to get soiled with dough, flour and liquids. The outer surfaces may be cleaned easily with a cloth and paintbrush, while we have developed removable resin combs to thoroughly clean the cutting rollers.
To remove the combs and clean them we recommend reading the instructions provided in the product’s manual or see the specific video.
Caution: never wash the products under running water or in the dishwasher!"
