Hmm, unsure on this one - like it in principle but fresh pasta is so cheap....

you've made my missus happy. she said 2 days ago " if you see a pasta maker on HUKD will you get me one " As if by magic ! got one reserved. Heat added.

Took two hours to make some very poor pasta, really not worth the money

useful for icing too.

Same price in Home bargains.

Don't forget you will have to clean it after, is it really worth it?
To make good pasta: 1 egg for 100gr of flour. then wait 1h, and put it on the machine :-)

Soon I'll have oodles of noodles!

Good for once in a blue moon. Ive used mine twice.in 3 years. I like it but just dont have the time.

It only took 20 mins to make fresh pasta, it was so easy, tasted really good we do it Mondays and Friday's, bargain xxxxxxx

Lol, this remind me my childhood. I have one 20 years ago, rotating the lever is really fun.

Don't miss q bargain people

I have one of these I used it once about 5 years ago!

Possibly worth mentioning in the original post that this is great for anyone who does sculpting or even has kids who play with plasticine/playdoh. I've been looking for one of these for kneading polymer clay such as Sculpey and this is the cheapest by far I've seen. Picking one up asap Cheers OP!

Bought one last year. Rollers bent the first time I used it. The same with the replacement. Got a quibble free refund but reviews are very poor. Imperial ones on Amazon for £50 are good. Cheap one is false economy. Just my HO...

How many of these have ended up at the tip over the years....Lifes too short to start making pasta.

Great for wringing out your y-fronts :-)

Whilst researching pasta makers found out that cheap really is cheap in the long run (or even short run in most cases). The Imperia one on Amazon has cracking reviews and is currently £31.99 although normally sells at 40 odd quid. I've got one and I also make crackers with it. Roll out cracker dough quite thin, then cut with cookie cutter and put through pasta maker - garlic and thyme or rosemary my favourite.

...if you're a midget.

I've got a little fussy eater in the house.Wonder if having him help make the food will help with the food issues..

Watching Masterchef recently reminded me I had one of these somewhere. Not been used in the past 10 years! I do remember it being good for making tortellini/ravioli because you could fill it with all sorts of ingredients. Must look it out again.

buy and enjoy seeing it in your cupboard then loft for years to come

Was talking to someone at work about how i would love one of these just yesterday.

Bizarre.

Ordered. Thanks OP

If you can't mix flour and eggs don't buy, sounds complicated for the majority

You can also dry your ties with this, I know, becasue I do. (and can't spell because)

Better check there's enough room under the stairs so I can put it next to the George Foreman and the smoothie maker !

You'll never guess what.....:{

I bought one of these last year and loved it so much so I bought my relatives one each for XMas. Brilliant device, really easy to use and you can knock up and cook fresh pasta in a little over the same time it takes to cook dried pasta - but tastes so much better. I use 50g oo grade flour and 50g regular flour and 1 egg for 1 serving.

Anyone any other recipes?

Had one of these once, chrome flaked off into the pasta on first use.

A load of chew and effort when using a thin rolling pin gets easier results.

Perfect for crushing and weighing in down the tip. ohhhh speaking of tips... You get what you pay for

Look at reviews. On the whole of it, it would cost me about a fiver to even get to Argos anyway. Rather spend an extra £17 and get a solid one - what doesn't bend. (Ive read comments on here regarding it)

Fair comments and good post. In perspective if people want a quality brand and can afford it, they will usually be willing to pay the extra premium.

However, for under a Tenner I feel my post is quite a good alternative for people who want to give it a try, or can't afford the Extra.

I just wouldn't want any one to pay £56 for the same product that available for £9.99.
