  1. I’m new to the pasta machine and I’m using it for polymer clay. Other than the handle falling off easily, it’s worked out quite well for what I need. The price is really good and it sure beats trying to roll by hand!!

  2. This product is quite nice. I used it as directed and made fettucine with absolute success. It would be lovely to have semolina flour but in my town no one carries it (and I am NOT ordering that via the Internet – freight is higher than the flour!). So, I used all-purpose (AP) flour. It workes lovely. Used the egg as well. I was sort of “Mr. Fumble Fingers” but it got easier as time went by. Hardest part was catching the cut fettucine.

    If you are pondering buying this Italian made unit, go ahead. It is great value for the money. You should not regret the purchase. Makes lovely fettucine. One day I’ll try spaghetti.

  3. I stripped the gears (for the rollers, not cutters) on this on the 3rd use. Total waste of my money. I know how to make pasta and use a pasta machine, if wimpy arms like mine can strip the gears, so can you. In good faith I called Pragotrade/ Weston to see if I could order new a gear but they will not sell them separately (I like fixing things instead of throwing them out).

    Lesson: save the receipt or buy a more reputable brand, these are cheaply constructed.

  4. I had made pasta a number of times in the past – rolled it out and cut it by hand. I didn’t think that a pasta machine would make much difference. I was so wrong. It is so much easier and also tastes better. I think the taste improvement is because the strands are now all standard and so everything gets done at the same time.

    I did have a small problem with the pasta sticking together as it came out of the machine – which is easily solved by simply dropping some flour through the machine.

    One problem is that it is a bit difficult to find a place to clamp the machine – the ledge on my kitchen counter just isn’t wide enough. I ended up clamping it to the kitchen table – a compromise I’m not entirely happy with.

    I’m considering buying the lasagna add-on because 101 cookbooks has a recipe that sounds wonderful for completely homemade lasagna. Although, I suppose, I could just run the dough through the machine to the correct thinness and then cut it myself – but I really don’t like the cutting part, nor am I any good at it.

    I glanced at the recipes that came with the machine – but then promptly misplaced it. So, I use whole wheat flour (1/2 cup or so), 1 egg and then add flour or water depending on which it needs. shrug – easy enough for one serving.

  5. I just bought one of these at a local store (it was the only model they carried) since I didn’t want to wait for shipping. I’ve used it twice now. Here are my impressions:

    It’s built solid, and seems like a great value.

    The clamp (which is removable) does its job very well. However, you may have to be creative in finding a place where you can actually clamp the thing and still use it. I clamped it to my slide-out cutting board.

    It’s easy to adjust the thickness of the pasta. You just pull out the knob on the side, and turn it to the desired position (there are 8 settings, and they each “click” in to place).

    The recipe/instruction book that comes with it really isn’t very good (at least from my 1 time trying a recipe from it). I followed the pasta recipe on there once and it turned out horribly (though it may have been because I was just using it for the first time). I found some great videos on youtube that demonstrate how to make pasta and had much better luck the second time around.

    I made a batch of fresh spaghetti tonight, and it was absolutely to-die-for. Easily the best spaghetti I’ve ever had. The difference with fresh pasta is incredible. It’s like comparing stale bread to home-baked fresh bread. No comparison.

    All in all I feel that this is a terrific purchase that met and exceeded my expectations. I’d easily buy this again and see no need to buy a more expensive model — this does the job perfectly.
