  1. I bought a cheap look-alike version of this and was disappointed. The handle falls apart constantly. I can hardly crank its handle. To make matter worse, the gear will pop out and stop in the middle of rolling out pasta! The clamp doesn’t stay attached to my countertop. On the other hand, the Imperia Pasta Machine is beautifully made in stainless steel and the build quality is excellent as indicated by its substantial weight. The handle turns easily, attaches securely, and a piece of cake to clean up. I highly recommend this pasta machine to anyone who loves pasta!

  2. After reading several reviews on slightly cheaper models and considering the advice given in Marcella Hazan’s “Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking”, I chose this model. It sat under the cabinet for 3 weeks after I bought it because life’s demands didn’t afford any time to play with my new toy. I finally scored a Saturday with nothing else to do and pulled it out of the cabinet. Here are a few observations:

    1. This model is a product of Italy and the instructions (which are written in several languages) are written in poor English. Since the product is a simple design, I found that I didn’t really need the instructions to figure out how to assemble the double cutter attachment. Thankfully, attaching the double cutter is the only assembly required.

    2. The pasta machine came with a recipe for pasta dough. The recipe was also written in several languages but the English instructions were a bit clearer than the assembly instructions. I didn’t use the recipe provided by the machine’s manufacturer though. I used the instructions provided in Marcella’s book mentioned above.

    3. This machine is heavy and unbalanced when the double cutter is attached. It comes with a clamp to clamp it to your counter top or table if you choose to use the hand crank provided to operate the machine. I bought the “Villaware V180 Pasta Machine Motorizer” along with the pasta machine. Using the motor with the pasta machine not only eliminates the need to use the hand crank, it eliminates the need to clamp the pasta machine. Not having to use the clamp means that you can position the machine anywhere you wish on your work surface, not just on the edge. I found it was more comfortable to place the machine about midway to the wall on my counter top. Using the motor also frees up both hands for manipulating the pasta dough as it is being processed. I honestly don’t think I could have used the thinnest settings with just one hand to manipulate the pasta dough. The dough becomes quite fragile when it thins and tends to want to stretch and presumably, break at the thinner settings. By using two hands to manipulate the dough, I found it easy to process the dough through the machine even at the thinnest settings.

    4. One of Marcella’s suggestions was to buy a machine with a double cutter because you will be able to make wide fettuccine style noodles and narrow round spaghettini style noodles. I made both using the fettuccine style noodles to make fettuccine in butter and cream sauce (Alfredo) and short spaghettini style noodles to make chicken noodle soup. Both cutters worked flawlessly.

    5. The machine/motor’s over all performance was also flawless. The motor switch has two speed settings and I used the slow setting throughout. The pasta machine and motor combination worked the dough easily through all the width settings. The motor also has a separate ravioli button that I have not tried yet. I ended up processing three batches of dough. The first was used to clean the pasta machine of metal bits and thrown away as was instructed in the manual.

    Conclusion:

    This is a well made pasta machine. It’s parts are well designed and made of stainless steel. Maintenance is a breeze. Just wipe it down when finished using it. This is a great little pasta machine. In short, it does what it is supposed to do – and – it does it with ease. It makes pasta.
