Pasta maker Reccomendations

by Jon Peterson » Thu Oct 17, 2013 10:51 am

I want to buy a stand-alone, manual pasta maker (one not attached to a stand mixer). Any recommendations?
I just wanted to inform you that I find you to be very attractive. Thank you and have a nice day.

I've been very happy with my Marcato 'Atlas' for the last 32 years. The box is much worse for wear, but the pasta maker soldiers on.

Thanks, Mark. It's expensive so I thought it was a pretty good one. It's at the top of my list so far.

What Mark said wrt Atlas. However, I have two attachments, a ravioli and a wavy lasagna, that are made by Fantes. They seem to be of comparable quality to the Atlas, are compatible with the atlas and are much less expensive. http://www.fantes.com/pasta-makers.html.
As a side note, I made an adapter to attach my Atlas to my Kitchen Aid mixer. It works, but I still have a bug to work out. When I get around to finalizing the project, I will post about it.

More testimony for the Atlas here. Ours must be 20-plus years old and is just like new. I can't truly say that we use it often, but when we do, I'm glad to have it.

FWIW I have an Imperia which I have had for many years and am very happy with it.
I have once or twice used an Atlas and it was fine as well, not much between them if anything.

Thanks everyone. Looks like the Atlas is #1 and I like the fact it's made in Italy - lends verisimilitude, I guess.
