good find will appeal to most people i think healthy option after all them mince pies & turkey , voted hot
#3
i would love one of these very good deal
#4
I've got one that has been languishing in the back of a cupboard for years - they really are a faff unfortunately!
#5
Everyone I know with a pasta maker uses it a few times and then never uses it again. The real fact is that fresh pasta really doesn't taste that much better than dried pasta. Plus it actually tastes worse after a couple days so you can only really make enough for one or two meals.

Still, hot deal if you really want one.
#6
i use mine all the time to make it with rice flour just wish i could afford a decent one
#7
are these any better than the cheapy ones you get in ikea etc?
#8
Great deal, only wish I had the time to use it, otherwise I would buy it!
#9
We had one of these and it's one thing making pasta, it's another thing drying and storing it. The freshness does not count for much - dried pasta gives a better result in most dishes. Really really really, it's simpler and cheaper to buy pasta in packets from the shop. These kits are enormously heavy, a pain to clean and to store, and not worth the faff. it's like brewing your own beer - you can, and its a bit cheaper, but it never tastes as good as a pint of Adnams (or Fullers, or Bombardier, or Black Sheep...)

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="4"][COLOR="DarkRed"]I have no idea how this got voted hot. Pasta making machines are an utter waste of time and money. Lets face it pasta costs almost nothing, and even top chefs say the dried stuff is is good as fresh. AND be warned, they dont actually make pasta, they simply roll/cut the stuf!

Avoid!![/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

It's hot as the deal in itself is extremely good. £75 cheaper than anywhere else is good value IMHO. Just because it may be a pain to use or clean shouldn't deter from the fact that it is a good deal. I hate camping but never vote cold on a tent for example. I wish people would vote on the merits of the deal pricewise rather than personal opinion. Hot from me as someone somewhere will be after one of these and thanks to the OP they can get one at a good price.

hot if your into your pasta..

I'll stick to buying though. I could buy a lot of pasta for £55
#13
I'm in the minority here.... I have this machine, a lower end bundle I paid around £30 for it has the spag and tag attachment. The kit here looks pretty good the ravioli attachment looks pretty good however I think the trays and a rolling pin would be easier.

They are not difficult to clean, there is no cleaning involved, you wipe off the flour and put it back in the box.

200g flour, 2 eggs in the mixer, work it a little then bang it through the pasta maker. Sure takes a little longer than take pasta sheets out of box but my lasagne turns out very well.

In fact if your saving time why not just by a 99p lasagne from iceland?

Some people who cook may find this hot, if your a takeaway fan dont vote :P

I have an ikea one (bought over ten years ago so may be different to current models). It's basic and just rolls pasta for lasagne sheets and cuts it at variable width tagliatelle. Plus I have a ravioli tray which you use with a rolling pin. I probably use it 10-15 times per year. I know someone else with one similar to this with many attachments. I can make ravioli quicker than him, although I rarely use the ravioli tray. Mainly I use it to make tagliatelle. It is quite quick and simple to do. However, if I am going to have plain pasta and dress it with a sauce, I tend to buy it from a shop and make the sauce.

The great thing about a machine is that you can add a flavour to the pasta as you wish - eg spinach, tomato, basil, mushroom, squid ink, etc - as you make it. So you can dress it with olive oil once cooked and you are done and it looks impressive too.

I don't know how much they are in Ikea these days, but if you don't think you will use the attachments the basic model works fine (and does nto take up as much space) and you can always make ravioli using a tray and roller separately.

I have one of these and if you appreciate quality in you food and have the time and interest in producing the best in your own kitchen then these are great. Fresh pasta made from my machine is a completely different experience to dried pasta - but obviously to fully appreciate it you need to make a nice sauce etc to accompany it - if you spend an hour making pasta and stick it with a jar of Ragu then its a waste of time. I see it as a reletively cheap way of making a really nice meal for myself and the missus.

THis is a premium product at a competitive price so hot - if pasta making isnt for you dont diss what is a good deal.
