Default What's a good automatic pasta maker that can be bought in America

I've had the manual Imperia pasta maker - which works ok - but it's manual.
On the other hand, the Ronco automatic pasta maker was a tremendious
disappointment because it broke almost every time I used it.

That was ten years ago.

Any recommendations for good automatic household pasta makers available in
the USA? (price range below $250 USD)

You might consider getting a motor for your Imperia.

Does she have to be Italian or from New Jersey?

I can't speak for availability.

You can get a pasta extruder and accessories that fit on the power
takeoff of a Kitchen Aide mixer. Same as the hand crank, but no
cranking.

I should have mentioned that the Kitchen Aide mixer takes up too much space
for the MIXING (which is the easy part of the job) for a kitchen appliance.

So it's out of the picture from the get go only because of its design.

The Trebs Comfortcook looked good; but it was 220 volts (from the
Netherlands).

The Italian Lello 2730 3000 seems reasonable after reading the reviews.
It's loud, and it is slow, and it isn't autoamtic by all accounts though.

I'm still researching the various two types:
a) Supposedly automatic (mixes, augers, extrudes)
b) Manual (with motors) (only seems to extrude)

KitchenAid has two models available. One is a roller type that works
very well. Similar to the Atlas machine, it makes wide sheets or cuts
them to narrow like linguini or fettuccini.

They have an extruder model, but I've never used it or seen it other
than at a web site. KA makes generally good products though.

Look for a 20% off coupon from Bed Bath & Beyond and buy it there.

Have you thought of getting a 230V unit from EUrope and powering it
from 230V. You would have to rewire and outlet in your kitchen to get
the 230V, depends on how badly you want your pasta.

I see you have become a fan and have an anal fixation. You'd not be

I would be interested in any recommendations even with a higher price point.

I love my KA mixer-- and the grinder, shredder, and food mill
attachments. I've used the extruder twice. Then I bought a
hand cranked pasta press [the roller type] at a garage sale for $10.

Now I use that and make great pasta with a minimum of fuss. There
might be a use for the KA extruder someday-- but there is no
comparison between the type of pasta you make with an extruder or a
roller.


Look for a 20% off coupon from Bed Bath & Beyond and buy it there.


Or catch a [frequent] sale on Amazon. [and I'd buy a used or
refurbed 'pro' model instead of the low end KA]

I have the KitchenAid extruder, but haven't used it since I bought a
pasta roller. I much prefer the results from the roller.

Depends how automatic you want. If you already have a cuisinart food
processor such as the DLC-7, you can get the DLC-054 pasta attachment.
First you make the dough pellets in the food processor bowl, using the
blunt plastic dough blade that comes standard with the DLC-7. Then
remove the bowl, slip the pasta maker over the motor shaft, and feed the
dough pellets into the tray at the top of the pasta maker. There are
about 6 different extrusion discs that come with the pasta maker that
select which the pasta variety you make. The mechanism is analogous to
a screw drive meat grinder, but designed for pasta. It's not fully
automatic, but the added cost of the attachment is not much and it is
easy to use.
