“A Pasta Lovers' Heaven!”

Takes A Little Getting Used To.

Making your own pasta isn't as hard as you think it would be.. well not if you own a pasta machine that does most of the hard work for you. Ok so it takes a bit of getting used to, but once you have *got it* you're set for tasty, healthy pasta for a long time to come. Not to mention the bonus of...

Super

fresh pasta, cheaply

Can be fiddly to use

Last night I was watching Jamies Kitchen and the ease at which he passed the pasta through the machine was sickening. It was smoothe and silky and well, nothing like mine! This pasta machine is a manual machine that consists of a main unit, an attachment to make tagliatelli and spaghetti with, a...

“Making Your Own Pasta”

Quick and Easy to make pasta

Can't shape it into other shapes such as twists or...

Like the idea of making your very own home made pasta, but you get put off by the idea that it will be far too difficult and time consuming? Well think again! I had this pasta machine given to me as a home warming present and yesterday I gave it a go and was really surprised at how easy it was...

“Easy Peasy”

I purchased this product after watching a couple of TV chefs using it. It stated that an instruction book was included but, the instructions and recipies were actually on the box, but they were very informative and easy to understand. The first time I used it I couldnt believe the difference in taste and texture of the pasta. It really works, just needs a little time to get use to it, but after about three attempts the pasta was turning out perfectly. I use it all the time now and have converted several of my friends to purchase one. We now have pasta parties.

This looks just like the machine I got from Argos. And unlike most people who buy these things, I have used it more than once. I love home made pasta. The plastic handle has dropped off the bar and the machine has gone rusty - and I do know about how to stop things going rusty - I have A-level Chemistry, so don't think I left it in a puddle of salt water. Also the spag and tag slide in cutter bit are rubbish and get bunged up all the time. I can only get it to make sheets, which it does quite well once you get the hang of it. I will struggle on until I find a good one... 30 quid - get what you pay for...
