Pasta Making Machines

This is my first post so forgive if off-topic. I would greatly appreciate some comments and reccomendations for my soon-to-be purchase of a pasta making machine. I am completely open on hand vs. machine and brands. Thanks ahead for your guidance.

  1. Sure. Start with the manual version. It's easier to learn how to do this on the hand crank version - easier to stop and back up when the dough misbehaves. By not using electricty to make lasagna sheets, you don't have to worry about adding to greenhouse gases or terrorist's pocket books (if that's what they are wearing these days).

    1. If you are getting into serious pasta making, the KitchenAid pasta roller attachment is the way to go. Agreed, it costs twice as much as a hand roller, but Oh so convenient.
