Fresh Pasta machines?

Which is best, the classic Italian graduated mangle thingy or a modern bells and whistles electric machine where you put the ingredients in one end and the extruded pasta appears at the other through a choice of a dozen templaes?

Are you trying to make flat rolled or extruded? Can't you be bothered to make the simple dough? The metal rolling devices are very easy to use and cheap.

Delonghi make a plastic machine which mixes dough and produces extruded shapes. Its the PM100. She used it twice and it jammed. She could not unstick it without a service. Four times later two bits broke apparently through bad designs. She recommended a pasta roller and cutter attachment to a kitchenaid. She has fed us several times on the pasta it makes and we have bought the same but don't yet have the nack with the roller.

You sound like sad obsessives. Pasta is pasta is pasta. I agree that fresh is 1000% better than dried but you can buy fresh and there's very little wrong with keeping some dried spag for unplanned late night drink fuelled famines.Don't be too proud to keep a jar of shop bought arabiata or bolognese ragu.
