  1. I got this as a christmas gift and was expecting it to be a product that sits in the cupboard for years as it seemed tricky to make my own pasta. I was pleasantly suprised when I tried it on how easy to use this machine was. We made a whole wheat pasta. From start to finish to table, it only took 45 minutes to make the dough, press through the machine, cook, and serve. I am now going to purchase other attachments as I can’t wait to make more pasta.

  2. I started with a simple, great pasta recipe (see below). After making it a number of times and rolling/cutting it by hand, I followed Mark Bittman’s advice in his wonderful book How to Cook Everything Vegetarian: Simple Meatless Recipes for Great Food (How to Cook Everything) (which is not just for Vegetarians!) and decided it was time to invest in a pasta rolling machine. Although it was a bit more expensive, I decided on the Atlas, and I haven’t been disappointed. The instructions were a bit hard to follow, but once we figured them out, rolling the dough through the machine became a family affair. So far I’ve never had a piece even get stuck, which is pretty remarkable. Here is Mark Bittman’s wonderful, simple recipe. You can use all-purpose flour, which tastes great, but I’ve always liked semolina:

    2 cups flour

    1 tsp. salt (Sea salt or Kosher salt)

    2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

    Combine the flour and salt in a food processor (not a mixer — a food processor!) and pulse it a couple of times. Then turn the machine on and pour 1/2 cup hot water and the olive oil through the feed tube. Process until a ball begins to form, about 30 seconds. Add a few drops of water if the dough is dry and grainy; add a little bit of flour if the dough is sticking to the side of the bowl.

    Then I take the dough out of the machine, put it on a piece of plastic wrap that I’ve sprinkled with a little flour, and sprinkle a little ore on top of the dough. I loosely wrap the dough in the plastic and let it sit for 30 minutes before cutting it and feeding it into the machinel.

    That’s it! Once you get it down, it’s almost as simple to make your own pasta as it would be to go out and buy dry. And it tastes soooooo much better! Enjoy!

  3. I have only used this machine one time but it worked perfectly. The seller shipped promptly (I got this quicker than my Amazon order which was made at the same time). Word of advice..leave more time than you think to make noodles for the first go around. It takes a bit to get the hang of it if you have never made noodles before.
