If I could give this pasta machine a zero star rating, I would. It is an absolute nightmare to use. I usually go through two or three home-use pasta machines per year, for use in a restaurant. Of the eight or ten I have used, this one is by far the worst. I purchased it (at a much higher price than I am used to) because it seemed to be durable, and maybe it would last longer. In fact, the machine is about a third of the quality of the much cheaper ones available on amazon. The little piece of metal that is meant to 'guide' the pasta, just throw it in the bin, it's useless. For some reason, the manufacturer placed a large bulky divider between the machine, possibly as a practical joke to prevent the user from having an enjoyable pasta making experience. At this stage, after only two weeks of turning wonderful sheets of pasta into garborated goo, the spaghetti attachment has given up all together and decided to fall apart. I would recommend this machine to anyone who has $100 burning a hole in their pocket, or anyone looking for a pasta making experience so traumatic and hate filled, that it will turn them off their mother's Hungarian goulash, for fear of seeing another egg based noodle. Save your money, a rolling pin and a half sharp knife will do any day over this useless piece of garbage.
