Take a look at this..

I started with the knife and board, too, many moons ago ;D
Now I have a "Nudelfee" and it works great with it, even though the Spaetzle are more "Knoepfle"

That's a really interesting gadget Cara! I had to Google it, and couldn't find anything in English but this youtube says it all. Very cool tool, although it looks unavailable here.

That is a really interesting press. Since it is hand cranked, no worries about power differences.

I haven't found it on amazon.com, so it is very likely it's not available outside Germany..

I think I'd press the noodles onto a plate rather than directly into the boiling water. The cranking process is a little slow. The noodles wouldn't cook evenly.

they do - that is really not the problem...
if you work from the plate, they may stick together

I've used my ricer...it works for the number of times I think to make Spaetzle. I probably make gnocchi more frequently. Was thinking of having the DH fabricating one of those "plates" for me. It looks as if it has a recessed part in the center...that way I can get it to fit over the pot I would use...if s/one would care to post the dimensions <g>. Or maybe I'll stick with my ricer...

It measures 10 1/2" without the handles. I think if you had one of these, you would make spaetzle more often. Before this, I used a pie pan with drilled holes. I used my ricer once and it was way too messy.

I was thinking that it resembles a pizza pan to me.
In fact I had that same thought
(though I don't allow DH anywhere something sharp,
he's been known to lose digits and I'm not kidding here)
of taking a cheap-o-dollar-store pizza pan to experiment with.
