The description and photo did not detail out the model of this machine, when I ordered what arrived was a Marcato Atlas 150. Made in Italy, very sturdy. I clamped it onto my counter and after running a small bit of dough through it to clean it, it made fantastic pasta. This is a great machine, and the real deal. I expect this to last several years.
After a recent trip to Italy, I was feeling inspired to try making fresh pasta at home. This pasta maker has helped make that inspiration a reality! It's very easy to use and seems like a high quality machine. You can use it to make pasta sheets of varying widths that you then hand cut into whatever pasta shape you want, or you can use it to cut a spaghetti or fettucine size noodle. It comes with some helpful instructions, too!
