The only assembly instructions are in Italian, though it is pretty intuitive when you look at the photos. The fettuccine/spaghetti attachment slides on to one side, and you slot the handle into the main roller or the fettuccine or spaghetti rollers, depending on what you're using. I found the little tray (for feeding the dough in?) unnecessary and don't use it.
I almost bought the motor (an additional $100) based on reviews I read saying that it is necessary because otherwise two hands aren't enough to make the pasta and the crank is too hard to turn. I'm glad I didn't. I have had no problems feeding the pasta dough in with one hand while turning the crank with the other. The machine attaches securely to the countertop with the included clamp, and you don't need another hand to "catch" the pasta when it comes out of the machine - if the dough is made correctly, it will not stick to itself and you can just pick up the sheet or noodles after they've fallen out the bottom. I have made sheets of pasta for pappardelle and ravioli (hand filled, not using the Imperia ravioli attachment), fettuccini, and spaghetti, all with success. The advice we got in Italy when making sheets of pasta for ravioli, etc., was to start with the widest setting, and roll it through each setting twice, dusting with flour as needed in between (ending on the second thinnest for ravioli). We were also told to crank the dough through quickly, to prevent sticking. These tips have worked very well and I have had zero problems with sticking, or it being too difficult to turn - my friend's four year old was able to turn it to make her own spaghetti after I set up the machine for her and helped her feed in the sheet of pasta. The recipe I use is the one I learned in Italy - ratio of 100 grams of flour to 1 egg, pinch of salt, and optional olive oil. Knead the dough until very soft and smooth and then let it rest for at least 20-30 minutes before rolling out.
The instruction book says that the first batch should be a "test batch" to be discarded, as any grit, etc. lingering from the manufacturing process will adhere to the dough. I would not skip this - while I did not see any metal bits in the dough that other reviews have mentioned, my machine did have what appeared to be a bit of black oil on the rollers that was picked up in that first batch of dough. Unfortunately, it seems that there is still some oil in the edges of the machine - I have made pasta at least 10 times now and still have a problem with oil/black streaks in the dough if it is allowed to go all the way to the edges of the roller, which then of course has to be cut off and discarded. That, honestly, is the only negative I have experienced with this machine and my only reason for giving it 4 stars instead of 5.
Finally, I have read complaints that it is "not washable." If you are making your dough correctly, you shouldn't need to wash it! You're only going to have a problem if the dough is too sticky. There is nothing on my machine after I use it except a few bits of flour that brush right off. Getting the texture of the dough right is the most important thing!
Observations: the machine worked flawlessly with my go-to pasta recipe, rolling out the sheets perfectly with the thickness adjustments working well. The pasta sheets were also cut perfectly with complete cutting achieved for all the pasta we rolled out, so no complaints there. I noticed that the new machine is somewhat lighter than my original, and it quickly became apparent why. There are quite a bit of plastic parts that are incorporated into the machine that are not present on mine. I would think that these parts will eventually break with extended use.
Overall I was satisfied with the performance, but disappointed with the build.
I test the cutters of these machines by running an ordinary sheet of paper through them. This eliminates the variables associated with actual dough such as hydration.
The fettuccine cutter on the other machine is challenged to cut a sheet of paper into separate noodle-shaped strips. Some of the paper is merely scored rather than being cut all the way through and separated from the other strips.
The Imperia fettuccine cutter cuts the paper into nicely-separated noodle-sized strips. I believe the superior performance is because the other machine has aluminum cutters whereas the Imperia I think has (rustable) carbon-steel cutters, at least that's what everything I've read leads me to believe.
With real dough, the difference is dramatic. The Imperia's fettuccine noodles come out nicely separated, cut all the way through rather than merely scored. I get nice, separate noodles just like you see in the YouTube videos that make it look so easy, rather than the clumps of scored dough I was getting with the other machine.
It pays to make the dough as stiff (dry) as you possibly can. I prefer to use an electric mixer to mix the dough, and let the dough rest for a while so the flour absorbs as much moisture as possible. I use one egg, a pinch of salt and about one-half cup of flour. You should adjust the amount of flour as needed.
The cutter attachment that comes with the machine makes a very nice but somewhat thick spaghetti (like spaghettoni) as well as fettuccine (you want to roll the fettuccine dough as thin as you possibly can). I have ordered the capellini (angel-hair pasta) attachment for my machine.
Because they are rustable carbon steel just like a good knife, do not let the cutters get wet.
I wish I had bought this machine a year ago instead of the other one.
directions for use, cleaning etc. It was stored in a cool dark cabinet.
A small plastic piece failed (broke) and now the dough just winds around the inside of the rolling mechanism.
I'll see if I can find a replacement but can not recommend this to others. A machine is only as good as its
weakest part. And with a plastic part that breaks this soon, its not a good machine.

Non aggiungo altri commenti, fatevi voi un'opinione.
Dalla mia esperienza ho capito che le nuove macchine Imperia sono fatte con materiali più scadenti rispetto ai modelli vecchi che funzionano ancora benissimo (lo si capisce semplicemente dal minor peso e compattezza strutturale dei nuovi modelli). Inoltre, leggendo alcune recensioni simili alla mia, ho la netta impressione che alcuni modelli Imperia difettosi non vengano ritirati dal mercato, ma continuino ad essere spediti a nuovi clienti alla ricerca di qualcuno che infine li accetti (è solo un'ipotesi).
PS - if you think you don't need one of those pasta drying racks - think again! You do.
The first batch of pasta, made as a practice run did not seem to have become dirty inside the machine so we ate it, no point in throwing away good food. I made a lasagne which went down well and used the last small sheet of pasta in the cutter on the fine setting. This went into soup the next day and it worked well with a lovely spaghetti like texture and delicious flavour.
I have the spaghetti attachment on my wish list, but having used the fine cutter that comes with the machine, I don't think I need to get it and there are lots of shapes you can make just by using pieces of rolled out pasta, perhaps cut with a fluted cutter. If I had one grumble it is that you can't take the machine apart to wash it, but having used mine it certainly did not seem to be dirty - just needed brushing with a soft brush and a wipe over with a slightly damp cloth.
Made a simple basic dough. 8oz 00 pasta flour and 2 eggs with a pinch of salt. Used 1/3 to clean the machine and see how it worked and it was really simple. (Watched a clip on web to get the idea).
Used the other 2/3 to first roll it out and then cut into strips. Worked a treat but it is better if you have another pair of hands to guide the strips through as they tend to stick together if you just let them go into a heap. Other tip is to cut the long piece of dough before you make strips - you would think it would be obvious, but I didn't cut it and the strips were 2 feet long - might be why I needed another pair of hands!
Found this made an edible but bit leathery dough and will make the next lot using just egg yolks and try ravioli.
I didn't expect to be able to make any pasta until I had practiced so I was delighted.
I've only used the imperia machine once, but so far, its been fantastic in comparison. You get a little shelf included that helps the pasta be fed through the machine, but its not included in the description or any photos from this supplier. I nearly bought from another supplier on amazon as their pic shows the shelf, which is also removable, but their price is more!
The only reason it doesnt get 5 stars, is because like my cheaper machine, this has a silly clamp contraption which needs to be clamped to a bench top. Not all benches are suitable. I have to open a drawer, put a tea towel in the drawer to stop flour going in, & clamp the machine to the bench that way. On occassions the clamp comes undone, but maybe I'm not tightening it enough.
I also find that the handle comes out when using as there is no device to click it in place, or hold it on.
These are minor issues and so far, its worked very well. Highly recommend.
I wouldn't recommend any other pasta machine, Imperia is the only brand you should buy, if you buy any other you'll be buying a second one soon.
This machine comes with a double cutter for spaghetti or tagliatelle, but Imperia has a full range of accessories that will fit it. Even though it is not stated here, mine also came with a little tray that sits on top of the machine that helps position the pasta sheet while passing it through the machine and it is very handy.
The only downside I have to say about this machine is that the handle comes out very easily as it doesn't "click" in place, so sometimes it comes out in my hand while I'm passing the pasta sheet through the machine, which is a bit annoying, but not a major problem.
So, if you're planning on buying a small pasta machine, this is the one, it is definitely worth paying a little bit more for Imperia instead of getting any other brand.
It is quite heavy and easy to use. The handle drops off every now and again but I can put up with that. The pasta sheets come out really thin and we have made ravioli and tagliatelle - both of which are delicious. I froze the tagliatelle with great success.
I used the pasta flour available at Morrison's with a free range egg (the instructions are on the packet). It does take a little time to make but is good fun and the end results are worth it.
I have given it four stars due to the handle and also cleaning the tagliatelle cutter can be a little difficult, but still a great product.
Another reviewer complained it didn't fit the worktop and she didn't want to clamp it to a table; we used a table protected with thin cork mats either side of the clamp. It works fine and I can't imagine you would get good results if you didn't clamp the machine firmly.
If you want to get into home pasta-making, buy this.
Great for making pasta but shops are cheaper and less hurty.
A wee tip though - letting the pasta dry for 20 to 30 minutes before using is a good idea - it is tricky to get it 'al dente' because it cooks so quickly. I think the drying maybe helps with this - though I'm still experimenting!
This machine is an all metal construction (with the exception of the plastic grip on the handle) and you get the feeling that if you dropped this on the floor, then it's the floor which would fare worse. It's a heavy piece of kit which is smooth to run and adds a rustic charm to any kitchen when on display.
Ultimately though, the pasta maker has to be judged on the pasta it creates, and this maker manages to incrementally roll thinner and thinner pasta which forms beautiful tagliatelle of spaghetti.
In a nutshell: This is a solid pasta maker which is easy to use and will probably out-live most of the people who buy it.
