I am very happy with this little machine. It is extremely sturdy in its construction, has a powerful suction pad (no sliding loose when in use) and the overall construction is very robust. It arrived in its own fabric bag so storage is easy. It is very easy to assemble - just screw in the handle and slip in the sliding plate and you are set to go.
The instructions are in Italian - seemed to be basic pasta recipes and then some recipes on how to use the made pasta.
This machine makes orechiette, cavatelli and gnocchi Sardo. I bought it to make cavatelli and haven't tried the other styles yet. When you look at the roller you will see three parts have raised plastic ridges - the first (left) is for orechiette, the centre is for cavatelli and the right is for the gnocchi Sardo. In terms of usage it is very simple. You need to roll your pieces of pasta into thinnish snakes, flatten slightly then dust with flour before feeding into the machine. If you do all of this you end up with perfectly shaped and cut pasta.
I am hoping that this company produces standard pasta machines as well as I have been impressed by the quality of this one and would not mind investing in other pieces from this range.
