The pasta machine has definitely made making noodles for my family easier! For the past 38 years I have either hand-cut or used a circular noodle cutter to cut noodles, which was time consuming. This machine has definitely made the whole noodle making process more enticing and less cumbersome.
I was basically looking for a machine that would help me to make evenly thick dough for ravioli. My surprise was that the attachment for fettucine and angel hair pasta was included! It is easy to use, IF YOU READ THE MANUAL. I have seen sevveral reviews about this Pasta Machine that clearly indicate that the buyers did not read the very small manual with instructions and suggestions for its use. My wife and I are impressing our daughters with the pictures we send them of the different varieties of pasta we have made using this machine. I am very satisfied with the construction of this unit. It is made well; heavy duty. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys TRULY "Home Made" food.
