Pasta Maker Buying Guide

Looking to buy the best Pasta Maker? Check out our guide below and you’ll be well-placed to select the correct one for your needs.

A trip to the grocery for most of us is rarely complete without picking up a package or two of dry pasta, but homemade pasta cooked using a good pasta maker has a texture and flavour all its own. Making your own spaghetti, tagliatelle, or lasagne sheets doesn’t have to be a time-consuming procedure because the best pasta makers will handle the majority of the work for you.


Our top-rated pasta machines can roll your dough into thin sheets, stretch it, and cut it to size if you’re creating linguine or any of the variations. Pasta extruders can even mix and knead the dough for you, so don’t worry if you don’t have time to do it all before dinner. Fresh pasta can be kept in the refrigerator for up to three days or frozen for up to three months.

How do you pick the right pasta maker for you?


What are the different types of pasta makers?

Pasta extruders prepare the dough by mixing and kneading it, then extruding it through dies to form the pasta shapes, which range from rigatoni to spiral pasta. Electric machines, on the other hand, cannot make wide pasta. If you want sheets for lasagne, for example, you’ll have to roll it out by hand or with a pasta rolling machine.

Manual rolling machines do not prepare the dough for you; instead, you feed already-made dough through rollers to smooth and silken it before shaping it into almost any flat shape you like. Flat sheets are used for lasagne, squares are used for ravioli, thin strips are used for spaghetti, wider strips are used for tagliatelle and fettuccine, and so on. They can’t make hollow or intricate shapes, though.

Electric rolling machines work in the same way as manual rolling machines, but instead of utilising a hand crank, they include a motorised attachment that does the work for you.

What’s the point of having a pasta maker?

Making pasta dough is made much easier with a pasta extruder. A pasta-rolling machine will evenly and precisely flatten your pasta dough, which is nearly impossible to achieve any other way.

What characteristics should I be looking for?


Hand Rolling Machines:

A wide range of thickness options
A clamp to secure it to your kitchen table or worksurface
Different attachments for different types of pasta
Action is smooth
Cleaning is a breeze.


For extruders, look for the following features:

It’s simple to set up and follow the instructions.
Pasta dough can be made quickly from scratch.
If you don’t have a lot of storage space, this is a great way to try out new flavours.
Cleaning is a breeze.


Is it simple to make your own pasta?

Yes, once you’ve mastered the technique, but it may take a few tries to achieve the desired consistency. It’s possible that your first few attempts will result in a crumbly mixture that doesn’t keep its shape. But keep going; you’ll make it. Don’t blame the pasta maker, though: it can’t do its job until the dough is the appropriate consistency.
